Patricia Traina's words...  
M.S. : 11/8/2019 8:51 am : link

"Ed Valentine joins me... to discuss where the Giants stand as they face a critical crossroad ahead of their game with the Jets."

At present, this team is not evenly remotely close to standing at any crossroad whatsoever. The Giants need to build a new road from scratch and that will take years.

In the meantime, the writers and pundits can say what they want about this sports franchise. They are investing words in a marginalized team hemmed in by countless bad decisions.

TE Evan Engram (foot), C Jon Halapio (hamstring) and RT Mike Remmers (back) not spotted at practice. Safe to assume all three will be ruled out.
This is when a Mike Remmers

will start to shut it down. Have to manage his back to play. Team's 2-7.
No good reason to lay in on the line anymore. If he wants to play next year he has to start getting ready now.

I disagree. Someone like Jenkins I'd agree, but Remmers is playing (or not) for his next contract. If he can't get better play on tape this year, he's looking at another 1 year deal next offseason at likely an even lower AAV.

Depending on how hurt he is, that might be a preferable option to going out there and injuring himself to the point where he might not pass a physical next time. He barely passed it this year.

The good news it will give guys like Nick Gates and possibly Chad Slade a chance to prove themselves. This team desperately needs a hidden gem along the OL.

I think the reason those guys are hidden is because they're not gems.
Pulley can't do much worse than Halapio

Adding to that, our coaches haven't shown that they can develop a lineman. So if there are gems, good luck with refining them into anything of value.
The O-line might actually improve but will also have

Timing and trouble with stunts .
Shame we don't have a couple of big TE's and
use the FB and run Barkley as much as possible
but we don't and we won't .
Another low scoring loss coming .
