I want to like Lewis  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 8/13/2017 11:32 am : link
but he seems like he has a singular ability to screw up. Yeah he's fast but he can't play offense to his speed. Seems to drop balls at the worst possible time. Mental errors. Just not a guy you want the ball going to on third down because he is going to screw up some how.

Writers talk about keeping him for special teams. That makes me uncomfortable.

Peter, I put this in the thread discussing Dan Duggan's recent articles:

Quote:
Duggan's rationale for keeping Lewis instead of Powe is that Lewis is faster, and therefore more of an asset on special teams. I've got a bit of a problem with that.

Lewis ran a 4.57 at the Combine. Powe did not attend the Combine, but ran a 4.49 at his Pro Day. Now, even if you believe that Pro Day numbers are inflated, I don't think anyone believes that they're done so to a ridiculous degree. It's not like Powe actually ran, say, a 4.75 and they clocked him at 4.49. The difference in straight-line speed between the two of them seems negligible to me, and let's not forget that Powe is almost two inches taller and twenty pounds heavier than Lewis, and a hell of lot stronger (at least where the bench press is concerned), and put up better numbers in the VJ and BJ.

We also know that Powe was a pretty good special-teamer in college, with a blocked punt to his credit, and was only taken off special teams when he became a much bigger part of the Cal offense. I'd take Powe over Lewis every day and twice on Sundays.
Duke Ihenacho is an interesting guy.

He's had some horrible luck with injuries, but he's been fairly productive when healthy (which hasn't been too often). Initially, I didn't think he had much of chance to make the team. Now, I'm not so sure he won't, especially if the Giants decide to keep five Safeties (which I really hope they do).

that's even more true of J.T. Thomas. No way they want to pay him $3M to come off the bench. They just want him healthy enough to avoid an injury settlement.

You're entitled to your opinion; that's fine. The team is thin at LB, and can use help on specials. A healthy J.T. Thomas could be part of a solution. Not saying he will be - just that none of us have a clue . Of course Thomas isn't worth $3MM, but that problem can be fixed with a pen.

I'm all for keeping Thomas at a reduced salary. And it's not unreasonable to think that they could come to an agreement on it, but why is it taking so long for Thomas to rehab an ACL he tore 11 months ago? The whole thing feels like a game of chicken to me with Thomas angling for an injury settlement and the Giants thinking they can wait it out and then release him at no cost. Or at the very least, have more leverage when it comes to negotiating a paycut.

And LaCosse continues his streak of making at least one circus catch each practice.
Five must-see highlights posted...  
Milton : 8/13/2017 4:06 pm : link
...and two of them are Matt LaCosse.
Is LaCosse a real weapon or another Ramses Barden?  
Big Blue Blogger : 8/13/2017 5:13 pm : link
Barden made highlight catches in practice against scrubs too. LaCosse needs to stay healthy and produce in games - and that includes blocking. I hope he can. There's a place for him if he can grab it. It's not as though Jerell Adams or Will Tye has a lock on a roster spot, and two extra TEs behind Ellison and Engram is a possibility.

Just don't see how people can think a QB who barely spent any time under center on college would be ready to be a backup. It's unrealistic.

Predominately, it is wise to defer judgment and tip your cap to the coaches that make the decisions because they should clearly know best.

And, every now and then, there are times like this that make you sip your martini on a Sunday evening and say "Why?"
Is that really a sick catch by Beckham?

And that's why he should be getting as many snaps as possible now.

What's unrealistic is expecting that Geno Smith or Josh Johnson would be anything more than they've been before - which has been deeply disappointing - should the need arise for one of them to play.
The odds that Webb could perform at Geno Smith's level  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/13/2017 7:11 pm : link
against NFL starters in a single training camp worth of snaps is what I meant by unrealistic.
