There is no decision to make — Pat Shurmur has to stick with Daniel Jones now

There is no decision to make — Pat Shurmur has to stick with Daniel Jones now

Photo by Steven Ryan/ Turning back to Eli Manning would be pointless With a struggling rookie quarterback and three straight losses during which the offense has not been nearly good enough to win games, you knew the question had to come at some point. It came Monday. Would Pat Shurmur consider benching rookie quarterback Daniel Jones and going back to 16-year veteran Eli Manning. “No,” was Shurmur’s simple — and correct — answer. “I think Daniel is going to learn from everything that’s going on. Just like all the other rookies in there playing are going to learn from the...

Upon further review: More thoughts after a second look at Giants vs. Cardinals

Upon further review: More thoughts after a second look at Giants vs. Cardinals

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via It’s not a film review, it’s just a second look at the game This isn’t really a film review. I don’t really do those. It’s more of a brain dump, a “things I think” as I re-watch Sunday’s awful loss by the New York Giants to the Arizona Cardinals. This is done without the All-22. It’s really just thoughts and observations as I look at the game again. Sometimes I hate to be right This is what I tweeted Sunday when Pat Shurmur, as he usually does, deferred after winning the opening coin toss. And, yes, I know there is a typo in...

‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast, 10/21: Thoughts on Sunday’s disappointing loss

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Pat Traina helps us break the game down Sunday’s 27-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals by the New York Giants was perhaps the lowest point thus far in Pat Shurmur’s tenure as New York Giants head coach. This was a winnable game against a team that is not more talented than the Giants, a team that had to fly across the country for a 1 p.m. game against a Giants team that had 10 days to prepare. The Giants were also getting Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram back Yet, the Giants were the team that looked unprepared. Patricia Traina of Locked on...

Giants-Cardinals ‘Kudos & Wet Willies’ review — Miserable Monday edition

Photo by Steven Ryan/ There isn’t much good to say about the Giants’ performance vs. Arizona It’s that time. Let’s get to what amounts to a pretty ugly ‘Kudos & Wet Willies’ review of a pretty ugly performance by the New York Giants on Sunday in a 27-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It’s wet and miserable outside today in upstate New York, and I’m guessing that’s sort of appropriate for what you’re about to read. ‘Kudos’ to ...

Cardinals 27, Giants 21: Four ‘things I think’ after Giants’ third straight loss

Cardinals 27, Giants 21: Four ‘things I think’ after Giants’ third straight loss

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports Let’s talk about Sunday’s loss Let’s do something I probably should have begun doing long ago. Let’s do a post-game ‘Valentine’s Views’ with some “things I think” regarding Sunday’s 27-21 loss by the New York Giants to the Arizona Cardinals. Pat Shurmur and a confusing final 4:29 I have said for years that I don’t like questioning individual plays calls. That’s too easy. You can cherry pick any play that works and say it’s a great call. Conversely, you can cherry pick any play that fails and say it’s an awful call. That said,...

Not well for the Giants. Read on to find out why. Chris Pflum The Giants have an opportunity to get their season back on track with a winnable game against the Arizona Cardinals. Their offense should look better than in recent weeks as they get both Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley back from injury in time to face one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Of course, there’s the possibility that...

Big Blue View mailbag: Trent Williams trade, dealing Eli, more questions

Big Blue View mailbag: Trent Williams trade, dealing Eli, more questions

The mail’s here! Let’s get right to your New York Giants questions in this week’s Big Blue View mailbag. @bigblueview mailbag question - should the Giants entertain a trade for Trent Williams? They have the cap space to sign him to a big deal and he is a top 10 LT when healthy. As long as it wasn't a first rounder, (maybe multiple 2s?), would Getty consider it? LT is a big need.— Andrew Arbuckle (@Arbookla) October 17, 2019 Ed says: Sure, you “entertain” the idea of trading for a left tackle like Trent Williams. He is a seven-time Pro Bowl tackle, and those seven times...

Giants’ Markus Golden returning to pass rush excellence

Giants’ Markus Golden returning to pass rush excellence

Markus Golden | Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports EDGE rusher flashing form that harkens back to 2016 The pass rush-needy New York Giants signed Markus Golden to a one-year contract in March, hoping he could return to something like his 2016 form, when he hd 12.5 sacks for the Arizona Cardinals. That, of course, was prior to a serious knee injury derailed him for much of the past two seasons. Despite getting just 2.5 sacks and 11 quarterback hits in 11 games last season, the 28-year-old Golden always believed his dominant pass-rushing form was within reach. This is what he told me during the...

David Mayo makes a tackle. | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Mayo showing he can do more than play special teams David Mayo signed with the New York Giants on Sept. 2, taking the roster spot vacated when B.J. Goodson was traded to the Green Bay Packers. He figured to be what he had been for four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, a top-notch special teams player and a guy who played a little bit of linebacker in emergencies. Then, the injury dominoes started to fall. In Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tae Davis suffered a concussion and Alec Ogletree pulled a hamstring. It was emergency...

Poll: Do Dexter Lawrence’s dance moves deserve a “Kudos” or a “Wet Willie?”

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Giants players chime in on ‘Sexy Dexy’ and his moves In case you haven’t noticed, big Dexter Lawrence has his own sack dance. ‘Sexy Dexy,’ as the 6-foot-5, 340-or-so-pound Lawerence refers to himself on Twitter, apparently fancies himself a dancer. Check this out, if you haven’t seen it.
