"Why cant we run that same shit as my brother did"
I've never understood  
snumber6 : 9/6/2013 9:25 am : link
why practice schedules don't fit the game time for the next week's game ... We're playing at night so wouldn't having practices near the gametime instead of early help get a team's biological clock more prepared ... ??
Biological clock?

Which one of these guys is going to get pregnant?
That seems like an odd concern to me  
Ten Ton Hammer : 9/6/2013 9:35 am : link
you want to run practice at 8:30 pm?  
djm : 9/6/2013 9:36 am : link
Not a concern  
snumber6 : 9/6/2013 9:55 am : link
just studies have shown that when a worker's schedule is suddenly changed their productivity goes down ...
practice at 11:15 AM to prepare for a 8:30 pm game is like changing a worker's shift ...

so yes 8:30 pm practice would get a player's body used to exertion at 8:30 pm ...
TheNeumann64 : 9/6/2013 10:00 am : link
so then when the next game is at 4:25, how are they going to adapt to that "sudden shift" since they're used to 8:30?

I hear what you're saying, but I don't think for 3 and a half hours it constitutes the same thing as a long-term shift change.
snumber6 : 9/6/2013 10:22 am : link
a week of 4:25 PM practices would have them ready easily ...

that study showed that after a couple of days productivity got back to normal ...
It's easy to get antsy  
Killed the K-Gun : 9/6/2013 10:23 am : link
when the game is later in the evening.

Synchronizing practices with the game time might ease the tension.

Someone will try it eventually.

Whether or not it makes a big difference? We'll see.
Don't those  
Semipro Lineman : 9/6/2013 10:26 am : link
workplace productivity studies also have a bigger sample size of just one week...

Hey snumber6

Do you think the Broncos practiced late to prepare for last night?
I'm sure the Ravens didn't  
snumber6 : 9/6/2013 10:50 am : link
uh any word from practice?

Moore and JPP ready to go Sunday Night ?
Smart money is on JPP not playing  
DavidinBMNY : 9/6/2013 12:12 pm : link
JPP playing seems as much about his desire to play as health and what I am seeing/hearing (first in sprints) his desire is picking up. I kind of see JPP back next week, but who knows. The giants will be conservative here.

I don't think you can dress both JPP and Moore if they are both less then 100% unless your just filling out guys to dress because there are so many injured guys. And so far Diehl and Bass are the only definite guys not dressing on the roster.

Is this practice closed to the media?  
Klaatu : 9/6/2013 12:15 pm : link
Is that why there are no tweets from the beat writers?
rptl530 : 9/6/2013 12:16 pm : link
also Adrien Robinson and according to the Star-Ledger(?), Hynoski.
Damn. I was hoping Hynoski would play.  
Klaatu : 9/6/2013 12:17 pm : link
I figured Robinson wouldn't be good-to-go just yet, though.

Status quo at #NYG practice: JPP + Victor Cruz participating again. No surprises yet. We'll get availability update from TC after practice

Art Stapleton ‏@art_stapleton 1m
Adrien Robinson (foot) not participating today. Told me yesterday he was hopeful for Week 2 #nyg

Art Stapleton ‏@art_stapleton 1m
Henry Hynoski is working again in practice today ... but repeating what I was told yesterday, don't expect Hyno to play Sunday night.

Art Stapleton ‏@art_stapleton 1m
Damontre Moore is practicing today, so thinking he's got a shot for Sunday night. We'll see. #nyg

Art Stapleton ‏@art_stapleton 1m
Don't see David Baas, so not expecting him for Sunday. David Diehl is out here working with trainer, but he has already been ruled out #nyg
Klaatu : 9/6/2013 12:27 pm : link
It's about time.
ok so 5 of the 8 likely inactives are:  
DavidinBMNY : 9/6/2013 12:28 pm : link
Nassib,Bass, Diehl, Robinsin, Hyno.

That's 3 to go.

At the D line position they've got to inactivate some of those guys. They have 6 DE and 5 DT. Other then DL and possibly Jernigan and Mcbride who can they realistically deactive?

I predict Hankins is inactive as there is a lot of depth in front of him this game. Then 2 out of JPP,Moore, Ojomo.

I think  
PaulBlakeTSU : 9/6/2013 12:30 pm : link
setting practices at game time will eventually become a celebrated innovation by a forward-thinking coach.

It's not just about practicing at the time they will be playing, but setting up their schedule for the week to set their bodies up to be the most alert.
for the inactives(since 46 players are active)  
CGiants07 : 9/6/2013 12:43 pm : link
id guess it will be :
JPP/Ojomo/Moore(one of)
wasn't Hankins on kick return  
robbieballs2003 : 9/6/2013 12:52 pm : link
or am i thinking of another DL?
Thanks CG  
DavidinBMNY : 9/6/2013 12:52 pm : link
makes sense.
Are you telling me that  
Bob from Massachusetts : 9/6/2013 12:53 pm : link
they've got an all-pro player who's been practicing all week and he's not going to play? That seems highly unlikely. They could certainly limit JPP's reps and the situations he's in, but I can't imagine they wouldn't play him if he's physically up to it. Now, for a player like Moore, that's easy to imagine, so I think Hankins, Ojomo, and Moore are the 3 other inactives, but JPP's playing!
yeah, there's no way JPP isn't suiting up  
islander1 : 9/6/2013 12:57 pm : link
if he's practicing on Friday..

Now, that's not to sugest theat he'll play 'extensively'...I can totally see them limiting his snaps to 25-35 total.
speedywheels : 9/6/2013 12:57 pm : link
Hyno practiced all week, and apparently he's not playing either.
my point is  
DavidinBMNY : 9/6/2013 1:03 pm : link
I'd be surprised if Both JPP and Moore dress if they are both limited, unless overall the team is so banged up they just happen to have an extra spot they can afford to give a DE and they go with 5 DE. So I thought 1 of 2 dress and while JPP is the superior player, his injury was more severe.

Given all the other banged up guys, especially if Hyno is out, and my math was wrong at 46 vs. 45, they probably can go with 5.

Hyno's a good player, but  
Bob from Massachusetts : 9/6/2013 1:08 pm : link
first off, he's not JPP, and secondly, his injury is different. There really shouldn't be any issues about JPP re-injuring his back at this point, it's just a matter of being in "football shape" and conditioned. With Hyno's knee, that's something that he could get into trouble with in the wrong situation in a game, so I can more easily see being cautious with him.
JPP's back should be fine?  
robbieballs2003 : 9/6/2013 1:22 pm : link
How do you know that? They don't tackle anymore in practice. I guarantee the first hit JPP delivers or takes everybody will be taking a gasp.
old man : 9/6/2013 1:33 pm : link
That Eli/Gilbride thing true? Wouldn't be surprised, we have the horses.
Next: Given the proven talent levels and the back issue, I'd rather 'sacrifice' an Ojomo to give his body and go all-out than a JPP as mentioned getting back into football conditioning. Both would see limited reps anyway. And given the character of the 'boys organization, and Dez, I wouldn't want a 'questionable' block to take out JPP(Would they do that? Yes, IMO).
Eric from BBI : Admin : 9/6/2013 1:35 pm : link
Art Stapleton ‏@art_stapleton 7m
Cruz + Hosley probable, JPP, Hynoski + Moore questionable, Baas. Diehl + Robinson out #nyg
Semipro Lineman : 9/6/2013 1:43 pm : link
is better than Doubtful on the likelihood scale right?
arcarsenal : 9/6/2013 1:51 pm : link
JPP had a  
Bob from Massachusetts : 9/6/2013 1:59 pm : link
small part of one of his discs removed. There really isn't much to heal besides all the soft tissue that you impact when you do the surgery, which really isn't that much. Just like for the heart, all back injuries and all back surgeries are not the same. This one is relatively benign to the extent of my knowledge.
if he wasn't going to play  
Dave in MD : 9/6/2013 2:03 pm : link
he wouldn't be making the trip. He'll play. All the doubt is a smokescreen.
I think he said he was making the trip whether

Bob from Massachusetts : 9/6/2013 2:41 pm : link
strong term.....perhaps just a little more insight from someone who's a little less nonexpert than the others here....but no attitude or insult intended.......just a difference of opinion
Having Hynoski would be huge.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 9/6/2013 3:11 pm : link
I think the drop off between him and Pascoe is scary.
I know, Bob.  
Randy in CT : 9/6/2013 3:23 pm : link
I was mostly joking and prodding balls for his penchant for pessimism.
prodding balls.  
Curtis in VA : 9/6/2013 3:25 pm : link
Ten Ton Hammer : 9/6/2013 3:29 pm : link
There is everything right with that.  
Randy in CT : 9/6/2013 3:47 pm : link
I mean, that was a typo?
robbieballs2003 : 9/6/2013 4:21 pm : link
I don't know where to begin. If Bob knows more than me about this then I defer to him. I'm not disagreeing with him but it was as simple as he said then why was he on the PUP for so long? I just don't see the Giants gambling with their premier defensive player. I'm not saying he will not play but I agree with others that if he does he will be on a snap count. I don't think they signed Ojomo if they plan on dressing all of these other DEs. That is just my opinion. I think Ojomo was signed for this week and after this week we will release him and pick up a RB. After that RB is here for a few weeks and/or Brown comes back I see us releasing Scott and going after another player (S, LB, etc.)
I think you kind of have to play  
Randy in CT : 9/6/2013 4:36 pm : link
JPP if he's practicing and not feeling pain (recent quotes). Plan to limit snaps and if he can do more, fine.
if the game was home i say jpp was 100% playing  
CGiants07 : 9/6/2013 4:54 pm : link
but with long flight they have to make sure he gets through it without a setback
Ojomo was signed  
Dave in MD : 9/6/2013 6:12 pm : link
because Moore is just getting back from his shoulder injury so we had two DEs being questionable going into Wednesday and we weren't going to sign a vet RB until next week because of the vested veteran rule.
