Hey - There's Gonna Be Some Football Tomorrow Night!

gidiefor : Mod : 8/10/2017 9:52 am
what are you going to be focusing on?

I am going to be paying close attention to the Oline, The TEs, and the RBs, as well as the play of the D line and linebackers

Hoping Webb gets some snaps. Doubtful.

Goodson. Engram. Secondary
First game  
superspynyg : 8/10/2017 9:59 am : link
The rookies not named Engram. I want to see how some of the later picks and UDFA's do. Who is this years Okwara?? How will Gallman look running the ball? Chad Wheeler's chance to shine?

I care about 3 things:  
PatersonPlank : 8/10/2017 10:00 am : link
The OL Progression (or lack thereof)
Can EE block (because if he can't then that will limit his time on the field)
The backup QB Situation.

👍👍
will it be on NFL Network??  
Jay in Toronto : 8/10/2017 10:05 am : link
I'm looking forward to seeing the DB backups and also if Thompson can pick up where he left off last summer before he got hurt.
Game is on NFL Network  
Millwall_Giant : 8/10/2017 10:21 am : link
according to their online schedule

I honestly don't about too much on offense...  
Klaatu : 8/10/2017 10:38 am : link
Other than the running game. Sure, I hope Webb looks okay, along with some of the second/third team TEs and WRs. but with no Eli or OBJ I doubt we'll get a fair assessment of the passing game. I figure we'll see a little of the first-team O-Line, though, and I hope they run-block a lot better than they did last year. Same for the back-ups who should see some time.

On defense and special teams, I'll be looking at the guys fighting for roster spots, and hopefully we'll get a good look at Rosas, too.
Ol..run blocking..running consistancy  
micky : 8/10/2017 10:47 am : link
Overall backups to the ol how they step in and do.

Webb..how he looks very early on. Hoping he turns out to be the future..but this game won't says so..a year down the line though..and his development.

Te's and how they perform.

I'm more interested  
jpennyva : 8/10/2017 11:06 am : link
in preseason games this year than I normally am and I think that is because of the great reporting from Gidie and Sy, so I am really looking forward to the game tomorrow night. The daily write ups by Sy make me feel like I'm there and now I want to see in action what he and Gidie have been seeing at camp. I'm also now rooting for some players on the bubble and am excited to see what they can do in a real game.

I have been trying to temper my excitement and enthusiasm for this season so as not to get my hopes up too high but it's been hard. Sept. 10th can't get here fast enough!
The starting oline will only play a series or 2  
superspynyg : 8/10/2017 11:17 am : link
then they are out. So watching to see how they block after only 2 or 3 series is very limited.
Want to see the rookies and backups  
Marty866b : 8/10/2017 11:27 am : link
I don't want to see Eli,OBJ,Marshall,Shepard,Snacks,JPP,OV,Jenkins,DRC,or Collins. I would play those guys a quarter in the next game, a half in game three, and then see them again against Dallas.
Will be interesting  
geemanfan : 8/10/2017 11:28 am : link
To see a FB in this Offense and if any of our back up DE's can get pressure.
Maybe a quarter on and off  
Sec 103 : 8/10/2017 11:29 am : link
during Saux - Yanks game
1) Can we run the ball? Inside? Outside?  
CT Charlie : 8/10/2017 11:37 am : link
2) Does Travis Rudolph have a shot? Does he play much? Is he targeted? Can he help on special teams?

3) Which rookies look good on special teams?

4) Who plays fullback, and how much?

The only three rookies I really care about are Rudolph, Shane Smith and Tomlinson. I think Engram will be fine -- maybe really good -- but we'll eventually see him as a receiver much much more than in-line. And I don't think we'll see much of Webb until next preseason.

+1. I love Sy's daily write-ups and Gidie's coverage. I want to see how Pinkins plays and how he fares in TE / RB coverage. Interested to see how Spags uses him. Versatility at S and LB + specials could be a very useful guy. I hope he gets a long look.
Really hoping that the

2nd/3rd OL groups can hold up. The coaches need to to be able to properly evaluate the rest of the skill position players, specifically the backup qbs.

I feel as though last year, the OL backups were so bad that it didnt really give Nassib and the rest of the skill players a chance to showcase their talents.
Safe bet Eli doesn't play  
Rocky369 : 8/10/2017 12:22 pm : link
Giants definitely have a toss up on QB2, and most likely solidified QB3.

1. Safe to assume Webb plays 4th quarter?
2. Any reason, or has it ever happened, that Geno and Josh take every other drive so they are evaluated against similar defenses?
The first game  
Doomster : 8/10/2017 12:35 pm : link
is not for the starters....

Looking forward to see Engram and Gallman, and what Goodson does in the middle....

For those who might miss it Friday night, it is being replayed on Sat at 5 PM.....
Sadly I'll be missing the game (seeing Bill burr)  
Route 9 : 8/10/2017 3:31 pm : link
But I'm just hoping NO ONE gets hurt. Fuck preseason, glad football is here though.

Same here. I'm going to the early show, so I plan on watching when I get back home.
Looking forward to watching  
mfsd : 8/10/2017 3:52 pm : link
our DBs behind the starters - Hunter, Blake, Deayon, Pinkins, Adams, Behre

Of course it's hard to watch them that closely in a preseason game, when we're not expecting the Steelers to open up the passing game in a big way
I'll be watching  
George : 8/10/2017 4:12 pm : link
Goodson, Hart, and Flowers every play.
In this order ...  
Manny in CA : 8/10/2017 11:11 pm : link

* Line play (on both sides of the ball)

*. Fullback play (especially Smith)

*. Khalid Abdullah (HB from James Madison

So awesome to get Giants football again  
Gregorio : 8/11/2017 1:03 am : link
Excited to see:
-Engram in action (first look for me)
-Darian Thompson at safety

Will be focusing on;
-Does Perkins perform well at RB?
-BJ Goodson defending at middle linebacker
-Rhett Ellison giving Eli time with some effective blocking

Go Giants!
