Positive takeaways

mfsd : 8/9/2018 10:38 pm
Sure, the game overall was marked by how bad Webb was, but a few good things to build on:

- Saquon
- 1st team and backup DL
- 1st team OL = OK, backup OL - pretty good against Browns backups
- Run D overall
- Gallman and Simmons
- Rosas looked smooth in his brief chances
- no major mistakes (turnovers, penalties, dumb/undisciplined plays)

I found Bettcher’s scheme interesting - mostly vanilla, but looked like he was switching from 3-4 to 4-3 every other series. He does seem committed to being “multiple”, as the coaches keep saying

What else you got?
Was Martin the last RB?

He looked good too.
Banks  
Jay on the Island : 8/9/2018 10:42 pm : link
praised OT Malcom Bunche for his play in the 3rd quarter. He said that he could be one of the surprises of the preseason.

Yup - really every RB not named Stewart looked good

Saquon

Looks like the real deal. He has a gear that not many players have, much like Beckham at the WR position. Let’s hope we see more runs like that first one this year.
Adams continues to be > Thompson  
ZGiants98 : 8/9/2018 10:48 pm : link
Hopefully, Curtis Riley returns next week and beats out both of them for the FS spot. I thought Grant Haley looked good on a few plays.

Based on 1 run? No in depth feedback on the other 4 carries?
Not much work but I thought Shepard was decent

Oh my God, a running back had 4 yards on 4 carries. He must suck.

Dude you're seriously unbearable. The kid looks to be the real deal. Fucking 8 man box and he broke it off for 39. Take credit away IDC but when's the last time you saw a Giants back look that explosive?

Is it just me or does he have an agenda? I understand saying 1 carry is not enough but getting on him for not being successful in the other 4 runs like you can't take a 4 stretch run from any RB in NFL history and see them not be successful. The guy is a running back.

well the guy has been pretty rock solid about whining about the pick since draft day.
on his other runs Saquon did exactly what he should have done  
mfsd : 8/9/2018 11:32 pm : link
and what his critics warned he wouldn't do - when the blocking wasn't there he picked up what he could and went down, instead of turning it into a big loss trying to hit a home run.

But a small minority of fans are actually rooting for him to fail so they can say I told you so - no point debating it too much

Honestly, some people aren't Giants fans but fans of being right. I don't think there's ever been a Giants or Rangers player that we acquired that I didn't like that ended up doing well that I would wish would fail to be proven right. Absolutely pathetic. The fewer "fans" like that the better.

One of Barkley's little gains was a run to the sideline, right side. When was the last time the Giants had a back that could actually get that far outside on a run? Not even Tiki had the speed to do that.

It's rare today to see a RB be able to go sideline to sideline. The Browns were smart to make sure they had a safety covering the sidelines.

Good points. I thought Herzlich looked good at ILB, as did Ray-Ray Armstrong.

Josh Mauro made a couple of nice places as well.

It looks like Sharp, Raymond, and Lewis are fighting it out for the 5th and 6th WR spots.

Ditto. Noticed the same.
That was the best run blocking I've seen from the Giants...  
M.S. : 8/10/2018 6:10 am : link

...in quite awhile!

130+ yards on 23 carries, 5.8 YPC ain't too shabby.

Equally, our run defense looked very strong as well with several tackles behind the LOS.

Browns had 50 yards on 33 carries.

OBJ is healthy
DeOssie still getting it done.  
Motley Two : 8/10/2018 8:58 am : link
Still one of the first guys, if not the first guy to get down the field on punt coverage.

Lauletta looked good.

Did he punt well? I thought a few were, well, similar to Wing last year LOL.

What was his final average last night?
LOL..

That "one nice run" came on the opening play where everyone knew he was getting the ball. He made not one, but two jump cuts and gained 40 yards.

Instead of coming away impressed, you worked in a line about the hand of God and called it "nice".

Are you really going to be looking to diminish everything about him this year? I know you are a one topic troll, but still. Fucking ponderous.

He has a point, I mean, Bakley was only getting 3 yards on his shitty runs...

Agree, he looked solid. Wing was responsible for two losses last year, he needed to go.

100% agree. Most important outcome of the game - OBJ is healthy.

It will be interesting to see how involved he will be in the practices with the Lions.

And, will he play next Friday with no contract extension? I wouldn't if I were him

I'll give Stewart this - on his one chance to convert a second and short, he got the job done. Don't expect Shurmer and company to ask much more of him once the real football starts

Yeah he had a few nothing runs. Those same runs are -3 and -4 yards the past several years.

Looking at the replay it was an extremely beautiful run, very patient and two stop on a dime cutbacks in the hole.

It was like a Tiki run, but 230 lbs and 4.4 speed.
