20 thoughts on the Giants heading into the preseason opener

from Duggan on The Athletic.

My favorite of his points was from Halpino talking about Dexter Lawrence.

“The thing about him is he can do so many things in the pass game off of his power and just how big he is,” Halapio said. “He’s not even trying to bull rush, but he’s just so big he’s working his moves off of that. So he can do spins – he has quick feet, he has quickness. I’ve got my hands full with him, especially when he’s at nose and we’re trying to run the ball. He’s a big dude.”

If you can swing it financially, its worth it to subscribe. I get MOST of my Giants info here, but Duggan is really good, and I actually like checking in on some of the other teams (coverage is divided by league/city/team) to see what is happening in their camps. Not to mention all the MLB, NHL and CFB coverage. They are always running subscription specials-got one for a buddy of mine for his birthday and he absolutely loves it-so keep an eye out.

I think pasting more than that one point would get me banned.
The Athletic offers free trial subscriptions.
subscription special

what's a good price for a special - like when would i know i'm getting a decent deal?

a lot of people recommend it, just having a hard time justifying the extra expense (i'd rather get Netflix or something)...
I have a subscription

mostly for the hockey coverage. I don't care a whole lot for Duggan. I don't think he's any better than the guys that write for the Post.

a year. The Athletic is worth every cent.
Here's a few interesting observations from Duggan IMO  
arniefez : 8/7/2019 3:57 pm : link
The Athletic draft guru Dane Brugler wrote that Jones had “slightly above-average arm strength” in his draft guide. But arm strength isn’t just about throwing 50-yard bombs. Throwing a 15-yard out from the far hash or fitting a ball into a tight window is the functional arm strength that is used far more frequently in the NFL. Jones appears fine in that department, but he’s not going to be confused with Patrick Mahomes.

Jones said the biggest challenge of adjusting to the NFL has been reading the defense, which has presented looks he never saw in college. That honest answer explains why Jones’ biggest struggle has been indecisiveness. There have been times when he doesn’t quite seem to know where he wants to go with the ball. The reason for that is he doesn’t always know at this point. That will be something to monitor as he faces live pass rushes in the preseason.

Hopefully that's not too much from behind a pay wall.

I tried to read the article but it fades out and becomes blurry at the bottom before it's over.
If you buy it  
NYG007 : 8/8/2019 2:32 pm : link
then cancel, its 50% off the first year. The writers get a good piece of it, so thats cool. Its been actually pretty good so far. I think video wise, they have a way to go, but the writing reminds of my old days of loving the sports articles.

And I agree, Duggan is good, he also replies to you pretty often.
