Brian Daboll says Ricky Seals-Jones being buried on yesterday’s depth chart is not an indication of where he stands. Says Giants have “a rep chart, not a depth chart” right now. Odd, though. All the other positions seem clearly layered w a depth chart.

Doubt it. There's no percentage in one handed catches at the line of scrimmage, whether passes or laterals. They need to be as sure as possible, which means two hands.

Yesterday he was also practicing one handed catches, also with the left hand, although he was standing square to the passing gun then.

My guess is that he is mostly just bored. I do wonder why it's all left hand. I keep waiting for him to switch to the right (like Belushi doing his eyebrow raises for his SNL audition).
Richie James  
5BowlsSoon : 6/8/2022 12:36 pm : link
With so many WRs always I hired, guys like Robinson and James will be invaluable. And oh, in case you didn’t know, James averaged 18 yards a catch in SF. He is a big play guy much like Robinson. I don’t care if both are short….separation is what counts the most.

The practical benefit Of this drill would be catching balls thrown behind the receiver.
Still would consider resign saquon if it’s a reasonable deal  
Payasdaddy : 6/8/2022 1:25 pm : link
Something that works for both parties and not a cap buster
Yes, if I can get a 3rd rd at deadline, got to consider it
Yes, if someone is offering big money in FA, can’t do it
But I think his value will be maximized in the offense this yr
He isn’t a between the tackles guy on a consistent basis ( capt obvious)

You could say that about yesterday's drill, where he was standing square to the gun, although if he never switched to the right hand you'd have to wonder why.

For today's drill, and answering the question that was asked, it makes no sense to practice sticking one hand out while standing at a 90 degree angle to passes (or laterals) at the line of scrimmage.

Too little to gain and too much to lose.

Definitely not working on a toss with a jugs machine.

If a player is running forward and the ball is behind, his body position would be the same as the way he did the drill.

Such a dumb comment. So if a guy is weak in one area, he is a poor leader? Ward isn’t the best defensive player but coach is lauding his leadership. You are just looking to take a shot at SB.
