Monday, October 14
10:20 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. – Practice
11:45 a.m. – Head Coach Pat Shurmur Available
11:55 a.m. – 12:40 p.m. – Player Interviews
Is Arizona Pat Shurmur's Rubicon Game?  
M.S. : 10/14/2019 8:43 am : link

A win and probably secure a record of 6-10 or 7-9 which will be good enough to save his job for one more year.

Or, lose and wind up at 4-12 or 5-11 and get himself fired after the season.

Alea iacta est.

The die is cast.

I hope he has to beat Dallas and at minimum split with Philly. He has to show he can win division games.
CB Sam Beal eligible to practice

Is today when he can begin again? Anybody know if the Giants plan for him to start and then come off IR in a few weeks?

Makes sense. I’m sure the Giants will want to see what Beal can do, especially if they’re looking at trading Jenkins before the trade deadline. Is Beal injury-prone or just a guy that’s had some bad luck with injuries?! He hasn’t seen live action in any pre-season in two years. It’ll be intriguing to see what he can do.
Beal coming back  
jvm52106 : 10/14/2019 9:28 am : link
could mean bye bye to Jenkins.

Beal

I believe he is eligible to practice now, and eligible to be activated in two weeks.

No he doesn't. But I can agree that 4-12/5-11 doesn't cut it.
I do not like Shurmur as a HC. I wanted him but I was wrong.

However, one of the easiest ways to fuck up a young QB is to constantly change offenses. Consistency is important to a young QB initially. Look at how veterans like Eli and Matt Ryan have struggled going from one offense to another. Unless something catastrophic happens then Shurmur will almost definitely be back. If we do get rid of Shurmur you have to have a guy that we know will be better basically lined up. Who is that guy? He's across the NFL suck on a whole right now. McVay was the hot guy. For those that have watched his games right now he has been pretty brutal. I don't want a guy who we keep out fingers crossed works out. So, instead of just saying we should fire him have a list of guys that you feel are an improvement. Imo, this was always a three year plan. Year 1 and 2 were used to draft well and get the cap in better shape. That was accomplished. Year e was going to be to find our QB if we haven't done so already. That seems to have taken place. So, this regime gets another year to continue to develop Jones, use our cap space wisely, and continue our good drafting. If by then Shurmur doesn't start winning games then imo he is out. That way Jones now has 2 years under his belt and is better suited to learn a new offense and succeed.

Saquon (ankle), Wayne Gallman (concussion), Evan Engram (knee) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) all participated in the portion of practice open to the media. They have independent doctors to clear guys from concussions, but I’m shocked to see Shepard back out so soon.

Olsen Pierre (concussion) was the only player on the active roster on the side. Sam Beal worked on the side with trainers and wasn’t dressed for practice.

Evan Engram sounds very encouraged by his work today. Says he is optimistic he can play Sunday vs.Cardinals.

NO TE wants to miss playing the Cardinals. They are horrible against TE's this year.

He's not going to get fired this year, but I also think it's highly unrealistic to expect them to win games against dallas and phi.
