The point is on that play, it doesn't matter who the WRs are or who the OL is. There was nothing there and he needed to throw it away. So, he either made a bad attempt to throw that out of the end zone or an even worse decision and throw if he was trying to hit a WR. That ball needed to go over someone's head on the sideline, or well out of the end zone. A worst case scenario should have been tuck the ball.

While Freeman is more of a north-south runner, I think your second point is pertinent.
Two things on the INT  
Matt M. : 10/18/2020 7:17 pm : link
One, it was not deflected. Two, it was not clear that it was out of bounds. Personally, I thought he came down with his elbow a hair inside the end line. At best, it was questionable whether or not his elbow hit out of bounds. So, I have no problem with the review. As much as I would have liked to overturn the call, it wasn't conclusive.

As I stated elsewhere, I just want that same consistency on the other review. To me, it seemed Allen's hip was down before he got the ball extended for the first. The replay was in no way conclusive, so how did they overturn the spot on the field?
We aren't very good right now  
terptacular : 10/18/2020 7:19 pm : link
But we are getting better. We lack any real weapons on Offense. We will get Saquan back, but we need a WR threat.
On defense we need an edge and maybe another corner.

But I do think the lines are better. The offensive line is starting to minimize the plays were things get absolutely blown up. That has been a feature for years.

Obviously, if you get the chance to take Lawrence, you take him. But, I would prefer to see the team continue to improve and pick up a few wins along the way.

It still i.s a bad decision. Why not throw it over someone's head along the sidelines? If you are throwing that out of the end zone, you don't do it falling backwards off your back foot and if you do, you damn well better get it out of the fucking end zone.

Jones said he was throwing it away there. That elbow hit out of bounds you can see the way the turf rubber pops up. He hit out of bounds. He let Young get to close and he had to throw it away falling backwards and he did not get enough on it. If anything to kill him on he should have thrown it away a split second sooner. Again I disagree that was intercepted that guy landed out of bounds.

INT being upheld on replay flies in the face of the exact reason that Crowder's INT was overturned a couple weeks ago.

On Crowder's, no evidence showed a ball actually hitting the ground while on the INT today, the elbow clearly hits out of bounds. Replay's inconsistency is simply maddening.

If you are lucky enough to draft a true franchise QB, yes that player can *help* you transform from 0-16 to a SB champion. It's obviously not going to happen in one year but I don't believe anyone that would support drafting Lawrence is delusional enough to think it would happen in one season.

I think Slayton (I think it was Slayton) was the only receiver over there, so he had to throw it near him. No one was near the sideline, so just chucking it out there could have been grounding since he was in the pocket. He tried to throw it over Slayton out of bounds, but seemed to get hit when he did (which caused the ball to not get there)

I disagree. I didn't think it was clear the his elbow landed in or out. Thus, do not overturn the call on the field. Last week was a whole other story. That call shouldn't have been overturned.

On the other hand, I thought the challenge should have failed. I don't think there was conclusive evidence that Allen got the ball extended prior to his hip hitting down.

The problem is that refs are being taught to let turnovers play out because they get reviewed anyways. So if there is any question at all in their minds, they call it a turnover on the field. Then there has to be enough evidence to slap them in the face to overturn. On this play, his elbow was absolutely out of bounds. If the ref had called it incomplete on the field it would never had been overturned. So the call on the field stays but the problem is, they are taught to call it a turnover if there is a question in real time. Putting the turnover ruling at an immense advantage. They didn’t follow that protocol last week though...

FatMan in Charlotte : 10/18/2020 8:26 pm : link
I don't know. We had 5 people in the room watching the game and they had a freeze-frame of the elbow hitting the white and each of us said it was going to be overturned. I thought it was really clear.

But my larger point is that the who conclusive criteria is applied inconsistently. There was no visual evidence to overturn Crowder's INT, but they did anyway. Even on the play you mentioned with Allen stretching the ball out, it looked like his butt or hip could have been down - and I was surprised it was overturned. But at least there was evidence the ball crossed the line.

Your post is crap. Who the hell are you to tell someone how to post? This isn't YOUR house. And there are different ways one can be a fan.

For example some of us are disgusted/ashamed over the years how this team has been performing and are hoping for change. Posters like you who just want to be cheerleaders disgust us pretty mightily.

Many of us have ben right since 2018 that we have a clown-of-a-GM. Yet we're supposed to shut up and let cheerleaders like you have the only voice?

Because it was awful attempt to throw it away. And by the way,-- it was called an interception. The Giants lost possession. He could've thrown it to the ground. To the sideline. Instead he stupidly tries to throw out of the end zone while he is falling back with someone in his face.

Agree on the inconsistency. As for the INT, I thought he landed in on the live speed. Slow motion looked like it may have been on the line. Either way, I really don't think there was enough to overturn the call.

But, I agree 100% with Crowder's INT and the challenge today.

A. Where did I talk about at all what correlates to wins? I talked about how the win should feel and it doesn’t feel good to watch a team control the ball and methodically march it down the field against our only competent unit

When someone wants to follow you around just spouting hate and bullshit I’m going to try as many different ways to curb it as possible.

Gotta hope the Redskins can at worst split with the Lions and Bengals the next 2 games for them. BUT most important, the Jets have to get a win somewhere along the way. This race isn't over yet. The NYG have to lose the next time they meet up in DC with this team though.

I agree with this. The GIants were always going to play hard for a first year coach in Joe Judge and get maybe 3-5 wins. The Jets quit on Adam Gase in preseason and most likely are going 0-16 having traded, released or placed all their good players on IR

Well said. I’ll add to that develop talent. I’d like to see if Judge and Co. can develop the drafted players. I think that’s been sorely lacking over the past two regimes and probably back into Coughlin’s early 2010s. Maybe the luck changes with this regime.

The excuse you are making is excusing the fact DJones executed terribly his throwaway.

You understand what a throwaway is, right?

He could've thrown the ball sidelines. He could have buried the ball in the ground.

Instead he threw high pop which allowed the refs to make a decision. How is that you can't understand this?

I get it that we won. But you understand that this is a discussion board, right? And it's okay even after wins to point out mistakes b our team, right?

How is backpedaling with someone in your face resulting in throwing up a high pop while forcing the refs to decide rather than throwing it to the sidelines or bury the ball in the ground a smart play? You're "excusing" it by saying we won and/or the refs blew it. But it was still a combination of horribly executed and stupid to throw it out of the end zone instead of sidlelines or to the ground.

I don't know. We had 5 people in the room watching the game and they had a freeze-frame of the elbow hitting the white and each of us said it was going to be overturned. I thought it was really clear.

But my larger point is that the who conclusive criteria is applied inconsistently. There was no visual evidence to overturn Crowder's INT, but they did anyway. Even on the play you mentioned with Allen stretching the ball out, it looked like his butt or hip could have been down - and I was surprised it was overturned. But at least there was evidence the ball crossed the line.

Agree on the inconsistency. As for the INT, I thought he landed in on the live speed. Slow motion looked like it may have been on the line. Either way, I really don't think there was enough to overturn the call.

But, I agree 100% with Crowder's INT and the challenge today.

Everybody is looking at his elbow on that int... It wasn't his elbow that came down first, if you watch carefully it was his forearm/wrist, and it was clearly in bounds.

for thinking Freeman simply runs smoother and picks better spots than Saquon does? Barkley's athleticism is off the charts, but Freeman is playing with the same team as Saquon and just looks better. Or maybe he's just better at making more of out of less?


Wish there was a site that tracked this stuff, but I'm guessing teams have used less stacked boxes with Barkley out. Probably fewer run blitzes as well. But that's conjecture on my part.

Fans who do this want the Giants to be contenders for years to come, not mediocre or average for years to come. And they also don't want either another NFC East team or the Jets to land a talent like Lawrence.


LOL

see this is what happens when you come into a conversation mid way and try to be tough guy.

I was responding to posters who said JOnes made a bad decision trying to get the ball to Slayton. It wasn't a bad decision in that he was trying to complete a pass, it was bad execution on a throwaway.


so we agree... I am just not going to define the kids entire day by that one badly executed throwaway.

It can still be a bad decision/bad execution and an erroneous call by the refs that tangibly hurt us. The two are not mutually exclusive and I am not completely sure (although a I have strong suspicions) why some people can't understand that.
