I think Duke had more than 1 Rutgers HB and 1 FB.

Pats can rest there starters and still win .
Mr Jones your mission if you decide to accept it is
too run for your life keep your head on a swivel and
go into a slide early . Gonna be a long night for the
punter and special teams .

Game over indeed.
I expect to come out of this game  
bceagle05 : 10/9/2019 1:07 pm : link
with a greater respect and appreciation for Daniel Jones - he'll show up and compete his ass off, despite the circumstances. Curious to see who else does. Also curious to see if Shurmur will be laughing it up in the post-game presser after a 30-point beatdown.
They didnít bring a RB in?

I left him off because of the concussion thing. That's just bad luck and it sucks.
Well, we thought we were getting our own version of Jordan Reed

You could say that about every pass catching tight end in the league. Just the nature of the position.

WTF!

Is this just intuition or based on anything?

Btw, I think you'll see Penny handle a lot of work tomorrow night as well. I think he's a better pass protector than Hilliman, at least he's stouter, and he actually runs well and catches well. I could see Penny out-touching Hilliman but it will probably be close.
This is going to be fun!  
Simms11 : 10/9/2019 3:00 pm : link
Even at full strength it was going to be a very difficult Challenge, but the Giants will be rolling out the JV team now on National TV. If the Giants can at least keep it close, it'll be a win in my book.

All the Pat defense is going to have to do is yell "LOOK OUT" and Jones will diving for cover.
This season is reminding me of David Carr's rookie year in Houston, he was a top draft pick with high expectations and came out punch drunk from the beating he took.

Had they signed Ajayi, CJ Anderson, or another vet monday they could have gotten caught up enough to play tomorrow. They could also promote Austin Walter from the PS. He can't be worse than Hilliman.
I wonder if they can keep the Pats

.

They re-structured somebody's contract recently
(can't recall who it was?). I recall reading it gave them an extra 5 mill. towards the cap this season.
They could have used some of that before last week,
and brought in another RB, before bringing Hilliman up from the PS.
Even before Gallman's concussion, they knew Barkley was out for awhile. That's not very smart.

Now vs even 20 years ago,injuries are endemic . Itís become a game of last man standing and which team is deep enough and lucky enough to win till the end.

If he doesnít play all year we canít give him the $8m guaranteed in March. In effect he might have played his last game as a giant.
At this point, who really cares about this game

I'm not sure what you are talking about. I presume you are referring to Shep based on Eric quote of Sy's tweet. Shep's 2020 salary is guaranteed on March 20th. Nothing gets paid in March. It just means that his paychecks from Sept - Dec. are guaranteed. His salary for 2020 is $6.45M. I don't know where you are getting $8M.
ugh.

Once again we will appear as a national laughing stock. It seems we always play worse in prime time, at least in the last 5 years.

Get a grip. Nobody is coming in Monday and learning enough to play two practices later. Only the PS kid could play Thursday with some partial knowledge of the offense.

Cutting Shepard would incur 8M in dead cap space and save 500K.

Most of his 2020 ($5.45M) is already fully guaranteed and the remaining is injury protected and vests in March of 2020.

Shepard being on the roster in March doesn't guarantee new 8M dollars.

There's virtually no financial downside to letting him recover and seeing if he can get his health back on track for next year.
Roster MGMT for tonight  
Pep22 : 10/10/2019 9:38 am : link
Walter for Gallman?

Dickerson for Engram?

Davis/Ogletree for Stupar/Tauefua?

Agree?

Am I missing any?
At least it's not NCAA Division 1 football  
Marty in Albany : 10/10/2019 9:43 am : link
If this were college, they would try to run up the score.

Mercifully, the Patriots will pull their starters when the game is comfortably in hand rather than try to score 100 points.
