From all accounts, Robinson

& DJ had a good connection this spring. I think Saquon is going to have a massive season as a receiver.

Bellinger had a couple of drops after, I believe, a senior year with no drops. Is this a Giants thing?

Yep, the logo causes drops...
Look, lets be real we need the young guys to flourish this year

And develop and perhaps help DG's legacy a wee bit.

If guys like Toney, McKinney, Thomas, Lemiuex etc., really step up and have super seasons we will be ok.

I have no reason to believe Bellinger won't be our starter at some point but playing rookies game 1 is a stretch. He'll play but perhaps not start.

Wow, didn't realize that drops in practice were counted on the stats page.
We already know Daniel Jones has been harmed THE MOST by

receiver-driven incompletions. It's a proven fact as per the thread/article listed below that discusses PFF has the data.

Bellinger dropping a few more in practice is just more data for this compelling analysis...

Let's hope the new staff can improve upon this.
I'll worry about drops in pre-season games and if it is repeated from

camp reports. Drops kill. Evan Engram had talent but lacked hands and it cost us dearly.

Lets hope this kid and Toney turn out to both be special and that they both create matchup problems galore for defenses. I love that DJ and Robinson "clicked" and hopefully Toney will be 100% for camp and beyond.
Turning heads in the Spring doesn't mean anything.

Certainly nothing conclusive. There was no blocking, no hitting, no tackling...nothing of real consequence. I'm reminded of a scene from the movie "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka," when Keenan Ivory Wayans and Bernie Casey come under fire for the first time:

Casey: I thought you were trained for combat?

Wayans: Yeah, but I ain't never been in it!

That is funny and true. As a retired Army combat veteran I can tell you that training is important but nothing tells more than an actually bomb exploding near you or a shot fired and you not knowing where from? How we react in the real world tells the story so until the games are played its conjecture - though fun!

Unless the Giants play without a traditional inline TE, Bellinger is certain to get significant snaps. I don’t think this offense is going to be a total aerial circus.
Sure would be nice if Bellinger turns into a decent Tight End

for Daniel Jones or the next guy. A reliable TE target is a young QB's best friend.

Giants needs to draft another one for the roster in 2023 as well. The last regime left that particular unit a literal mess.

He was a massive contributor to the INTs as well.

H-Back is damn likely too.
