Reply with quote

game Guessing the 53-man roster for the New York Giants is always fun www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/saquon-barkley-jersey , and with things evolving constantly as we get closer to the regular season let’s update our latest projection.Offense Quarterback (3) — Eli Manning, Davis Webb, Kyle LaulettaNo change. Lauletta was better than Webb Thursday vs. the Cleveland Browns, but Webb remains second on the depth chart. Out: Alex TanneyRunning back (4) — Saquon Barkley, Wayne Gallman, Jonathan Stewart, Shane SmithLast time I listed Smith as a tight end. He’s a fullback, so I’m putting him in this group.At this point, I still believe one of Robert Martin and Jalen Simmons will be on the practice squad. Both were impressive Thursday.Tight end (3) — Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison, Jerell AdamsInitially, I thought Adams might be in jeopardy. Now, as each week goes by I’m more and more certain he makes the roster.Out: Scott Simonson, Garrett Dickerson, Ryan O’MalleyWide receiver (7) — Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, Cody Latimer, Hunter Sharp, Russell Shepard, Amba Etta-Tawo, Kalif RaymondNo change. This might still be one too many wide receivers, but at this point I think Sharp, Raymond and Etta-Tawo all deserve roster spots.Out: Travis Rudolph, Marquis Bundy, Roger Lewis Jr., Alonzo Russell, Jawill DavisOffensive line (8) — Starters: Nate Solder (LT), Will Hernandez (LG), Jon Halapio (C), Patrick Omameh (RG), Ereck Flowers (RT); Reserves: Brett Jones, John Greco, Chad WheelerNo change. John Jerry played well Thursday, but he’s a guard and he’s making too much money to sit on the bench when the Giants have other capable players making less money who can back up at that spot. I still believe the Giants will look for a veteran swing tackle off the waiver wire. Also, if Wheeler doesn’t play better than he did Thursday his roster spot might also end up in jeopardy.Out: Nick Becton, Malcolm Bunche www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/patrick-omameh-jersey , John Jerry, Evan Brown, Chris Scott, Nick Gates, Zac Kerin, Victor SalakoDefenseDefensive line (7) — Starters: Damon Harrison, Dalvin Tomlinson, B.J. Hill; Reserves: Kerry Wynn, Robert Thomas, A.J. Francis, Avery MossNo change. Moss, Wynn and Thomas were all really good on Thursday.Out: Tyrell Chavis, Kristjan Sokoli, Izaah Lunsford, Josh BanksLinebackers (8) — Starters: Alec Ogletree, B.J. Goodson, Olivier Vernon, Kareem Martin; Reserves: Lorenzo Carter, Ray-Ray Armstrong, Mark Herzlich, Connor BarwinNo change. Armstrong and Herzlich were solid against the Browns, but using them ion regular-season games would still make me nervous.Out Romeo Okwara, Calvin Munson, Thurston Armbrister, Tae Davis, Jordan WilliamsCornerbacks (5) — Starters: Janoris Jenkins, Eli Apple; Reserves: B.W. Webb, Grant Haley, Leonard JohnsonNo change. I will stick with Johnson for now. That spot, though, could go to Chris Lewis-Harris, Wiliam Gay or Donte Deayon. We shall see. At this point, though, I think Webb is looking like the slot corner and Haley is increasingly playing like a guy who belongs.Out: William Gay, Donte Deayon Safeties (5) — Starters: Landon Collins, Curtis Riley; Reserves: Michael Thomas www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/kareem-martin-jersey , Darian Thompson, Andrew AdamsNo change. The question here isn’t really which guys make the roster. It is which guy starts next to Collins, and how often the Giants employ three safeties with Collins in a pseudo-linebacker role.Out: Sean Chandler, Mike Basile, Orion StewartSpecial teams Placekicker — Aldrick RosasPunter — Riley DixonLong-snapper — Zak DeOssiePractice squad (10 players)RB Robert Martin, C Evan Brown, OL Nick Gates, WR Travis Rudolph, S Sean Chandler, CB, Donte Deayon, DL Tyrell Chavis, TE Garrett Dickerson, OG Zac Kerin, QB Alex TanneySaquon Barkley dazzled in Giants’ debut, but wanted to be just a few yards better The Jacksonville Jaguars knew what they were facing as soon as they tried to tackle New York Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley.“I knew right away. The first run and the first couple of times I tackled him, I said, ‘this kid has something,’ ” All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell said after the game.Campbell made sure after the game that he found Barkley and swapped jerseys with the rookie.“Coming into the NFL against a team like ours, and making some of the plays he made, that kid’s going to be special,” Campbell said. “I traded jerseys with him after the game because I was like, ‘Okay, if he can stay healthy, he might one day be a Hall of Famer. So now, I’ll get his jersey when he’s young.’ ”You get the feeling that Sunday was an example of how Barkley’s NFL career could go, provided he stays healthy. Because it’s how his career at Penn State. Ho-hum, mundane, ordinary, nothing special and then all of a sudden ... EXTRAORDINARY!!He had 8 carries for 12 yards in the first half Sunday. His longest third-quarter run was 8 yards. The game appeared to be over, just another mundane, nothing to see here, loss for the Giants after Myles Jack took a tipped pass to the house to give Jacksonsville a 20-9 lead early in the fourth quarter.Then ... BAM!!! Then Barkley the Giants believed they drafted, the one GM Dave Gettleman said got only the second perfect scouting grade he’s ever handed out, the one who was a human highlight reel at Penn State, happened.Just a little handoff up the middle www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/aldrick-rosas-jersey , and the tiniest amount of room to manuever. All of a sudden, two Jaguars, maybe three, had flailed and missed at the line of scrimmage. A good enough block from Evan Engram and Barkley was in the open field and headed for the right sideline.A block from Sterling Shepard and he got the corner. One more Jacksonville defender tried to bring him down and came up with just air. Barkley tiptoed the sideline, stayed in bounds and went 68 yards for the dazzling score.The Giants had a chance again. They had indeed found a star running back who could do things only few can. MetLife was alive. The Giants didn’t complete the comeback, but everyone now knows what Barkley can do.“We knew he was a really good player coming in,” said Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone. “It’s one of those games where you feel like you’re doing a good job, you got a lot of population to the football, you got a lot of people trying to bring him down. Then all of a sudden, bam! He breaks that, whatever it was, 68-yard run. Outside of that, I thought we did a pretty good job against him. We were really focusing on him, knowing that he’s a heck of a player.Barkley finished with 106 yards on 18 carries, 5.9 per attempt. He became the first Giants rookie to gain at least 100 yards rushing in his NFL debut. His run was the longest by a Giants rookie since Ahmad Bradshaw went 88 yards vs. the Buffalo Bills in 2007.Barkley, though, wished he had been a little bit better.There was a fourth-and-2 carry in the third quarter with the Giants trailing 13-9 where he came up just short.“Fourth-and-one is always tough to get, especially when you have a defense like that. Fourth-and-one mentality is you have to get it no matter what by any-means-necessary,” Barkley said. “I jumped and I thought I had it, I thought I did enough to keep the sticks moving, but I didn’t and that is something where there’s no excuses that I’m a young player, and I have to realize how important that is.”There was the two-point conversion after his 68-yard run where he was stopped short.There was a fourth-quarter pass from Eli Manning on third-and-5 where he got 4 yards. Well, really about 4 3鈦? yards, but couldn’t get the last little bit needed for the first down.“My realistic expectation was that I expected to win. Every game you come into, you expect to win by any means,” Barkley said. “It didn’t matter if I had 100 in the air or 100 on the ground, or if I had 20 rushing yards; I’m not really a stats guy, I don’t really care about stats. I want to get the win and that was my expectation, but sometimes you fall short on your expectations and it means you have to continue to work and we have to go back to the drawing board and go back to practice and get treatment, recover and get our bodies right and continue to get better.”The Giants didn’t win, of course. As I wrote in “Kudos & Wet Willies,” in the standings this amounts to a loss in a game that was winnable, it amounts to a missed opportunity to upset a really good team and get the season off to an exciting start.Barkley’s single run, though, showed the promise of a future that should be a lot of fun to watch.
