Sights and Sounds: Giants defeat Jets to open preseason.

Biggest takeaway from this game: When Jake Carlock speaks he sounds exactly like the late Mitch Hedberg.

the other big takeaway was Michael Thomas' scouting report on Davis Webb. As he was talking to Ballentine he said (paraphrasing)

"The QB they got in right now was with us last year, he's gonna let that MF'er fly. He don't care. He does not care, he's going to throw it. So you are going to get a chance for a pick"

Interesting takeaway from a veteran safety and lets you know what the players actually thought of his ability.
And I left out the last part

"whoever is in, you are going to get a chance for a pick". Yikes...

This team may be in year 2 of a 3 year rebuild....but that

enthusiasm is infectious.

I love seeing these DB's making plays and the underrated WR's standing out.

You have to have some guys like Carlock on the team. They are the engine like Thielen for the Vikings...the unheralded guys like Victor Cruz.

Loved when Ballantine said this was his first NFL game ever and he was playing in it! I bet that is true for a lot of these guys who get drafted or come in as UDFA's.
I love these.

This team is starting to be very easy to root for. Barkley and Engram were the first two guys to congratulate. The excitement they all showed for the guys low on the depth chart, etc. A very likable group.
Russell Shepard needs to make this team just for the sound-bites.

Oh, and note to Jabrill Peppers: You're "post ta" get the interception, okay? You're not "post ta" let it slip through your fingers.
Peppers

is going to be a much needed vocal leader for the young guys.

Nice to have Barkley & Peppers on each side of the ball. Vocal leadership covered.

Nice team getting built here.
This is a very likable group.

I'm a fan, I root for laundry, but there are times when the guys wearing the laundry aren't that easy to like. This group is VERY easy to like.
I just wish they didnít have to dub over swear words  
mfsd : 8/10/2019 6:13 pm : link
but itís cool to seem the players cheering for each other like that.

Lot of guys were happy for Jones, Carlock, Shepard. Def a good vibe with this group so far
Not to be a killjoy on my own thread, but...

I hope they're having this much fun next week. The Bears should be a much tougher test than the Jets.
This is a very likable team

Russel Shepard is hilarious
Ballantine's pick  
Jay in Toronto : 8/10/2019 9:36 pm : link
never saw the 'down by contact.'
Also after the pick

I think someone came over and said something like 'That was for your homie.'


I may have misheard.
