They fell to 1-5 New York Giants Hoodie , all but ending their season before October is even half over. Each week we have looked for the games to tell us things about the 2018 Giants, and on a short week, against a division rival, with their season on the line, this game was going to be the most instructive yet.Unfortunately, we didn’t learn much that is positive.The Giants WANT to play conservative offenseOne of the things about football on a short week is that it reveals the kind of football that coaches want to play. After watching the Giants put forth a good offensive performance against the Houston Texans and the their best, most passionate, performance in years against the Carolina Panthers, there was some thought that the Giants might keep doing what they have done well. Instead, they reverted to the careful, highly risk averse, check-down heavy offense which was utterly futile against the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints. While it’s true that the offensive line was woefully outclassed by the Eagles’ defensive line, they were outclassed by the Texans’ and Panthers’ fronts as well. To a large extent Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , this was the offense the Giants wanted to run, and of the Giants’ first seven drives only two of Eli Manning’s completions went beyond the line of scrimmage. One for about one yard in the air, and another for about two yards in the air. Gettleman’s offensive line rebuild has failed Will Hernandez is going to be a very good player. That is the extent of the optimism with respect to the Giants’ offensive line. Eli Manning was under siege throughout the game and was simply getting destroyed by the fourth quarter. The Giants did get a decent push in the run game, usually as a result of Hernandez’s blocks, and one great block from Sterling Shepard. However, after a mid-game adjustment, the running backs were once again being met in the backfield by Eagles’ defenders. Giants’ fans celebrated when Ereck Flowers was released, wiping away the last holdover of Jerry Reese’s offensive line. However, that also means that THIS offensive line is Dave Gettleman’s, and he bears the responsibility for it. For all the (deserved) criticism of the Giants’ offensive line in 2017, it is somehow worse now and that is on Gettleman. Unfortunately, it’s a problem the Giants will have to live with for the rest of the year.Apparently, the “S” stands for SaquonI have been remarking on Saquon Barkley’s athleticism and ability as a runner and receiver for weeks now Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , but what he did in this game is something special. It didn’t do much good, but Barkley put his cape on, put the offense on his back and carried it against the Eagles.The Giants had 401 total yards, 229 of them were generated by Barkley, as were 7 of their 13 points.Olivier Vernon is a difference makerThe Giants’ defense had some problems through the first five weeks, but the biggest of which was an utter inability to get pressure on opposing quarterbacks.Olivier Vernon returned and made an instant impact. Working against Jason Peters, Vernon consistently got pressure on Wentz, flushing him out of the pocket and giving other defenders the opportunity to effect the pass — such as Kareem Martin’s two tipped balls. Later in the game, Vernon finally got home for a sack, raising the team’s season total to 7. He was also a difference maker, consistently setting the edge in the run game, stopping runs around the line of scrimmage even when he didn’t get the tackle. Now he will get extra long week — until Monday night — to recover from his first game back.That’s good news for a Giants’ team with few positives right now. Questions about Odell Beckham‘s ESPN interview were guaranteed when Giants quarterback Eli Manning spoke to reporters on Monday and Manning came ready with a quip in response.During the interview, Beckham Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , who was sitting next to rapper Lil Wayne, said that he didn’t know if Manning was the problem with the team’s offense. Manning was asked for his response to that comment.Throughout his time with the Giants, Manning hasn’t been one to add verbal fuel to fires and often opts for humor instead. He stayed consistent in that regard.“I don’t watch Lil Wayne that much,” Manning said.Manning did say a bit more about Beckham, including that he feels their relationship is fine. He said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, he thought it was a good thing that Beckham spoke to the team on Saturday night so that players, especially those who may not know Beckham well, didn’t have anything he said on their minds when taking the field on Sunday.Manning and the Giants were sluggish to start against the Panthers, but the offense closed well to get to 30 points for the first time in over two seasons. They’ll try to continue on that front against the Eagles on Thursday while leaving Lil Wayne and assorted other drama in the rearview mirror.
