Anybody got any positive perspectives on this one?

I am positive that D.J. Fluker, tears of jilted rage streaming down his cheeks, will crush the Charger defenders beneath his great fists, plowing open holes and leading the way for Wayne Gallman to have the first good rushing performance of any Giant back this season!

Further promising report on Fluker's performance vs. Tampa, from SB Nation:

"

Fluker was by no means perfect. He was beaten a couple times in pass protection and found himself on the ground a bit too often. However, his power and toughness were a welcome change at the right guard spot. For the first time since Geoff Schwartzmanned the position defenderd were seen bouncing off in pass protection, and there was a definite push in the running game. 

Fluker might not be an All-Pro at the position, but the Giants were able to run the ball with him there, which helped open up other aspects of the offense. 

It remains to be seen whether or not Fluker will keep the right guard job when Bobby Hartreturns from his ankle injury. We already saw a dramatic improvement in the offense when Brett Jones and Fluker took over for Jerry in the third preseason game, only to have Jerry regain the starting job.

The Giants' coaches at least have to consider keeping him in the starting lineup. Itight not be the position and heralded name that many would have preferred, but it appears as though Jerry Reese did find an upgrade for the offensice line. Now the question is whether or not Fluker earned another chance in the eyes of the coaches.

Whose perfectly defeated season comes to an end!? Tune in this Sunday to find out.  Truly riveting television in a race for a top 5 draft pick.  

But seriously if we lose to an 0-4 team playing 3 hours outside their time zone to go 0-5, it will be an all time low for this organization and heads should roll.

Which heads would you like to see roll?

Offensive coordinator.  

Offensive line coach.  

Running back coach.

Special teams coach which is long overdue.

It’s Mcadoo’s offense and he calls the plays. Why not him?

We-e-elllllll, I'm pretty sure that, given the Giants' Loyal-To-A-Fault policy, their boyish head coach, that plump and pleasant young man, will be around for many more years of pre-season high hopes, and regular-season futility!

I could totally see them sacrificing Sullivan as the scapegoat for the offensive woes but it should be Mcadoo. He has total control.

I still don't understand why we have a holdover from Gilbride's offense as our offensive coordinator.

With head coach - and former offensive coordinator - Ben McAdoo continuing to call plays, Sullivan is in a supporting role on Sundays. Sullivan meets with quarterback Eli Manning after every series and passes along suggestions to McAdoo, which are plastered to the coach's oversized play sheet on post-it notes.

"On game day, be an additional set of eyes and give some of the feedback to (McAdoo) from Eli or give some of the feedback to the offensive line coaches and the other coaches," Sullivan said of his role.

Like they did last summer, McAdoo and Sullivan shared play-calling duties this preseason. Sullivan called the entire preseason finale, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, when the Giants' backups scored 40 points against the Patriots.

Hey Mcadoo why not give it a shot... we are 2nd to last in the league in points scored... it can't possibly get much worse.

I’m not sure if I should tell you, but Gilbride’s son is on our staff.

Super pumped to see Gallman roll today. Loved him from scouting him. Had a 4th round grade on him because he has limitations but knew if he went to the right team he’d be golden. Giants were on my list of fits.
