Friday NYG News Round-Up (Position Coaches / Injury Report)

Eric from BBI : Admin : 11/18/2022 6:16 pm

O-line coach Bobby Johnson, DBs coach Jerome Henderson, QBs coach Shea Tierney, OLBs coach Drew Wilkins, ILBs coach John Egorugwu and WRs coach Mike Groh speak to the media before Friday's practice.

Interview with Shane Lemieux as well.

Five Giants Questionable for Lions Game - ( New Window )
Johnson: ‘I’ve never cut a player. Players cut themselves.’

Coach-speak, sure, but largely true. Jack Anderson’s boneheaded penalty on fourth and one might be a good example. Anderson may have been doomed by numbers anyway; but when his name hits the waiver wire in the next few days, one play will stand out as his defining moment.
Unfortunate that Coach Patterson wasn’t included.

Like Johnson and Egorugwu, Coach ‘Dre has some hard decisions to make, especially if Lawrence’s back is a sign of overwork. The DL room has two stars and four bodies. Patterson has to utilize Mondeaux, Ellis, Anderson, and Butler to complement/conserve Lawrence and Williams, without costing the team any games.

I wonder if the Safety situation might see a few snaps wherein Ro Williams moves into a boundary corner position to allow Fabian Moreau to move over to safety.

Moreau who has been a pleasant surprise at corner has worked at safety before coming to the Giants. He has the size and working in Ro Williams at corner might pay dividends in the future.
Anderson will likely

Yup. The team will need a roster spot for Lawrence Cager next week. I figure they will waive Anderson and sign Cager on Monday, then re-sign Anderson to the practice squad on Tuesday if he clears waivers. He might be back in uniform in time to run with the scout team in practice. In effect, Cager and Anderson will simply trade places. That's all assuming injuries don't change the outlook tomorrow.
Marty: I think you're referring to Henderson's discussion...

... of how they create packages to utilize the skills of the available players - especially to cover for McKinney's absence. Now that Williams has been practicing for a few weeks, the staff should have a decent idea of how his coverage ability stacks up against Moreau, Holmes, and McCloud.

Can they put Williams on an island against Noah Brown, Michael Gallup, or DeVonta Smith? Time will tell. This week offers an opportunity to test out some packages and give them some game experience. St. Brown, Raymond and Reynolds aren't on the same level as the Dallas receivers, let alone Philly's, but they are good enough to test a secondary.

I think the Lion game is an ideal time to get Ro Williams some snaps. The Lion wideouts don't exactly strike fear.

I really like how the Giant coaching staff has been able to develop some young players while still bringing home the W's.

All of our current year draft choices have played and contributed in addition to some notable UDFA's.

Additionally the coaching staff has developed some past draft year players that seemed to underwhelm in the past. I'm thinking Aaron Robinson, Gary Brightwell, Elerson Smith so maybe they can work their magic with Rodarius. Give him some snaps. Work him in where they can. Get some videotape on him that can be used as a further coaching aide.

You can never have too many quality cb's. It doesn't look like ARob is coming back this year. Should we make a run at the playoffs, it would be good if Ro has some quality snaps under his belt should the injury bug hit again.

You can type that for the rest of the season, may for the rest of their careers. Two brittle guys…..
