Barkley out 2-4 weeks

Remember he returned from a high ankle sprain in 3 weeks, so....

The Giants need to find a young RB on someone's practice

squad and sign him and play him. RB is the easiest position to fill in the NFL and the least valuable.

I understand why you would feel bad for him but blaming the organization I don’t get. His injuries were caused by the organization. Bullshit yourself some more.
There is absolutely ZERO chance the Giants trade Barkley  
Giantfan in skinland : 10/11/2021 10:13 am : link
Just not a move Gettleman or our ownership would ever contemplate. I fully assume we'll resign him to a massive deal.
I like Saquon  
thedogfather : 10/11/2021 10:14 am : link
but he's turned into an underachieving and injury prone player. I don't think this is the last time he'll get hurt either. I'd cut our losses and move on. I don't have much trust or confidence in him anymore. It's like he either runs for a yard, losses 3 yards, has an explosive play every 15 attempts or so or he gets hurt.
Best  
AcidTest : 10/11/2021 10:15 am : link
wishes to him. He was really starting to play better the last few weeks. We saw some of the explosiveness that made him a unique runner.
So He'll Be Back After the Bye  
Bernie : 10/11/2021 10:16 am : link
to pad his stats and get a larger second contract. Such is the karma of the Giants. No move this team makes is the correct move.
i don't think you can trade Barkley...  
Dnew15 : 10/11/2021 10:16 am : link
the NYG would be getting pennies on the dollar from a trade perspective at this point.

The key is going to be not compounding the mistake of drafting him #2 overall and giving him a long term, cap anchoring deal.

Hopefully someone else will be making that decision in the front office when it comes time to make that call.

Wanting and being is two different things. The man just can't stay healthy. If we pay him it would be a big mistake, if we let him walk he will go on to be an all pro somewhere else (a team that can actually block).

is complete bullshit. The Giants failed the Giants. As mentioned before we got the luxury item before we had the place to put it. BUt, said luxury item is constantly in need of repairs and doesn't perform as well as you would expect for the design, size and the position it plays.

The biggest flaw in 2018 was believing Eli was still Eli and that Barkley was the difference.

Barkley IS the face of the franchise-- and that's the problem. A perpetually injured overpaid overdrafted RB with poor vision, weak stutter-step dance moves, inability to pick up blitzes, and who has contributed to a grand total of seven (7!!!) wins in 3 and a half seasons is the face of this franchise.

I don't see how you can justify bringing Barkley back for a second contract, but I'm almost certain they will look for any reason to, and if he manages to stay relatively healthy next season, they absolutely will, and the mandate will come from the owner.

Coopcomic : 10/11/2021 12:11 pm : link
People minds will change and change again (maybe). I'm guilty of that. New Orleans you had Barkley edging back, and it was exciting for a millisecond. Maybe he's going to tragically be Victor Cruz, where you hoped/hoped/hoped. There's still time for him to come back and to show he can stay relatively healthy and be explosive. I hope he comes back and makes it interesting. The idea of a fully utilized Barkley and Toney sounds entertaining.

Nope. You take Nelson (a guy with HOF potential too) and you fix the one group on an NFL team that can change average players elsewhere (QB, RB, WR and TE) to above average instantly. Nelson was my choice then and sure as fuck would be today!

We could have had Nelson in a slight trade down and acquired another first round pick.

There were so many more favorable outcomes for that disaster of a draft. Get rid of Gettleman now.

Matt M. : 10/11/2021 12:43 pm : link
His rookie year he showed a ton of what he could do. I think the injuries make it a terrible situation and mean there is no way he should even sniff a second contract here. But, I think the biggest problem was drafting him without making even a mild improvement on the OL.
Doesn't matter

Samiam : 10/11/2021 1:03 pm : link
The real knock on not taking a RB that high is that RBs get hurt a lot and miss time. I’m pretty sure that Barkley has already missed, prior to this injury, close to 50% of the games since he was drafted. And, if the Giants had built a good OL, something Gettleman was supposed to do, a decent RB, and there are lots of them all over the league, would have provided a good running attack, something that they haven’t had in years.

redwhiteandbigblue : 10/11/2021 2:04 pm : link
31 yards is 4.4 yards per carry. We have No one getting close to that. He proved to be way more valuable than Booker last year with 682 yards and a 4.6 yard per carry average behind last year's awful offensive line. Gallman must have some friction with front office and/or coaching staff as he is much better than anyone we have backing up SB. We could have signed him at the vet minimum when SF cut him (they were loaded at RB).

These are the haters coming through. He’s a mediocre running back. Bullshit! He might be the best back in the league he’s just had freak injuries that cannot be blamed on conditioning or irresponsibility. He’s got Giants look just like Cruz, Nicks, Smith and even Odell.

This is a curse. Now 89 is injured and likely will miss multiple games.

“ those injuries aren’t on the team“. So are they his fault for not being conditioned enough? Is he too out of shape? Is he an irresponsible player?

No! He’s got Giants luck. They should all get blood transfusions from Eli.

If you watch the Giants for any amount of time you know this happens to all their quality players with one exception being Eli Manning. It happened to Nick’s, it happened to cruise, it happened to Steve Smith, and it happened to OBJ.

I love Barkley but he’s played one full season. Gave us hope and now the injury bug has hit him for 3 straight years. None of those injuries is on the team. And the team was counting heavily on him to be a difference maker. We’ve only had one season of that Saquon.

It’s a shame he can’t stay healthy.

without Barkley, Jones, Golladay, maybe Toney, RWilliams and questionable are Shep, Slayton, Thomas. Did I miss anyone? My goodness we are the walking wounded. We’re playing all back ups and will most certainly get our collective asses handed to us. This will probably be another blowout. How do we even win 4 games this year? The whole thing is sickening after so many high expectations coming into the year.

Sprained ankle isn’t that bad. Let’s hope Saquon can use that super human body to heal up fast and get back on the field. Until the docs say otherwise, I’m not really worried about this injury for Barks.
