  1. I'm sure there is going to be a bunch of interest around the NFL. Despite his overall struggles as a rookie, there were a few games where he did a good job that gave us hope. And beyond that, he was great in college and is still very young. I actually had hopes that he would turn it around in his second season in a new scheme. Graham is a Belicheck disciple and I thought they were going to play a lot of man with James Bradberry and Deandre Baker. I wouldn't mind getting him back on the Giants, but I think that ship has sailed. They cut him out of team meetings pretty early, so he'll be learning a new playbook here, just like anywhere else. Might as well get a fresh start on a new team.
  2. He got lost in coverage and blew his assignment so many times. I think the system was a bad fit. I think he'd do better in a scheme were he got to play more man coverage, and less exotic zone.
  3. Serial season 4 by Sara Koening. Hopefully done in this fashion
  4. Giants are 4 - 17 against the Eagles in the past decade...
  5. I think Holmes and Bradberry would have closed on that pretty quickly

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29939464/2020-nfl-pass-rushing-run-stopping-blocking-leaderboard-win-rate-rankings ESPN developed a "pass rush win rate" stat using player tracking data. WFT is 24th in the league. Using that same metric, they faced the 32nd best pass blocking teams in the league yesterday. In general, you expect more from a D-line with 5 first round picks.

    I strongly disagree with this take. I think teams should be aggressive in finding a good QB and offensive minded HC. The years you wait are just wasted seasons.

    This isn't one game analysis of a rookie player. The bottom line is a franchise QB is more important than any other position in the league, regardless of how good they are. The inability to admit that Herbert would have been a better choice is an example of the endowment effect.

    You're in denial. As a Washington fan you should know how difficult it is to find a franchise QB. And by the looks of it you let one slip right by. Herbert is playing great by any standard, let alone rookie standards. Even if Young had 8 sacks right now, you still take Herbert because a franchise QB is the most important piece to sustained NFL success.

    I think it's a valid criticism. 3.5 sacks in 7 games is disappointing for a guy that was allegedly a better prospect than the Bosa brothers. He was invisible yesterday against a pretty bad Giants O-line. And he went up against Andrew Thomas, another rookie that's had his share of struggles. Hindsight is 20/20, but the WFT should have taken Herbert. The Giants should have taken him too. Neither team had the balls to move on to a new QB after just one year like Arizona did with Rosen / Murray. Both teams will regret it.
  11. Daniel Jones vs. Washington : 4 - 0 Daniel Jones vs. the rest of the league : 1 - 17 🤣
  12. Despite the crappy season, I do like what I've seen / heard from Joe Judge. Definitely think he should get another chance with a new GM / QB next season. However, if the Giants do get a new QB, please dump Jason Garrett. That's been a failure.
  13. The issue with Jones is the turnovers. Although his fumbles per drop back have improved slightly from 2019, it is still one of the highest rates in the league. His interceptions per drop back have also increased from last season. He has been one of the worst QBs in the NFL in terms of turnovers in the past two seasons. Most of the other guys on the extreme ends of these graphs are no longer starters (Haskins, Winston, Rosen, etc). It looks like the Cam experiment might be over in NE too. You simply can't win when your QB is giving the ball away at least twice a game. The one saving grace for Jones is that he is actually an accurate passer unlike most of those guys, and he's a good athlete. But if he doesn't fix the turnover issue quickly, the Giants would be foolish to not take a long hard look at Trey Lance or Justin Fields even if they don't get the #1 overall pick. It's better to call a spade a spade than to see the same pattern repeated next year and end up benching Jones for Colt McCoy after week 4.
  14. He wasn't as good as his numbers suggested. Quietest 10 sack season I ever remember a Giant having. Saying someone is the best at something on the Giants isn't saying a whole lot though 😂
  15. Cut him?? Who the heck is going to run our TE sweeps? - Jason Garrett
