Offensive philosophy Youth Customized New York Giants Jerseys , Dave Gettleman’s decisions, 2019 NFL Draft on minds of Giants fans Odell Beckham Jr. is questioning his teammates with the New York Giants. Well, fans of the team have questions, too. Which is what our Big Blue View mailbag is for. So, let’s open it up and see what questions spill out.Ed says: Well, sure. They have a fullback [Elijhaa Penny]. They have enough tight ends. But, you’re telling me you want them to take Sterling Shepard off the field on a regular basis and replace him with a tight end or fullback? That’s not a good use of your personnel. The Giants need to give the ball to Saquon Barkley as a running back more than 10 times per game, but lining up play after play with a fullback, two tight ends and only a single wide receiver isn’t going to happen. Nor should it.Christopher Scott asks: Four games into the season and the revamped offensive line is still not allowing for big plays to develop. I understand there may not be a proven Pro Bowl lineman sitting at home waiting for a phone call. Are the Giants bringing anyone in during the week to try out, to at least kick the tires on some FA? Ed says: Christopher, I haven’t heard of workouts the past couple of weeks. That said, the Giants have added two offensive tackles — Brian Mihalik and Jylan Ware — to their practice squad in recent weeks. I’m sure they are aware of who is available. If they thought, however, that someone on the street was better than the players they have they would have signed him already. There is a reason guys are available at midseason — the other teams have judged them not to be worthy of a roster spot.Seth Weissman asks: Based entirely what you’ve seen from the Giants so far this season and assuming they finish with one of the 5 worst records in the league, if a top QB is available, would you draft him or an OT with the first pick in April’s draft?Also, I love Barkley, but can we all admit that since the Giants had decided to hold onto Eli as starting QB, they should have traded down in the first round and nabbed a different RB or Bradley Chubb and another OL?Ed says: Seth, I’m not going to commit to anything when it comes to the draft. There are 12 games yet to play. The college season is still in full swing. The draft is roughly seven months away. I haven’t, to be honest, studied a single college prospect. And I won’t for several months yet.I have no clue what I would do. There isn’t enough information at this point to make a decision. I don’t know where the Giants will be drafting, who will be available, how the players on the current Giants roster will perform the next 12 games, what free agents they will sign or lose. There’s just no point in worrying about , or trying to figure that out, now.As for the trade down scenario, I don’t think we should “all admit” that it’s what the Giants should have done. Saquon Barkley is a wonderful player. Trading down and adding picks is the scenario I would have preferred since the Giants weren’t selecting a quarterback, but they got four really good players at the top of their draft — Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter, B.J. Hill. That haul is hard to complain about.Gino Phillips asks: What is solution to [Curtis] Riley’s play at safety?Ed says: On the current roster, I’m not sure there is one. The Giants let Darian Thompson and Andrew Adams go, and the only work either has been able to find is on practice squads. Which tells you the rest of the league wasn’t enamored of their abilities. Michael Thomas is not a free safety. Maybe the Giants give undrafted rookie Sean Chandler an opportunity eventually, but right now that’s about all they can do.The real answer is that they are going to have to look for an upgrade in the offseason, whether that is via free agency or the draft.I do understand why the Giants gave Riley the safety job. He is usually in center field, and the Giants wanted a player with range and cornerback skills. Riley has those. What he doesn’t have is the ability to tackle or take proper angles in pursuit of ballcarriers. Per Pro Football Focus, Riley already has six missed tackles in four games. He is missing one of every four tackles he attempts. For the guy who is the last line of defense — or for any NFL player, really — that isn’t going to cut it.CTscan123 asks: We had exactly 2 good players on our offensive line last year. We let them go and spent the money to retain them on the highest paid “average“ tackle in the league, A guard with no history of success, and over the hill running back, and a $10 million middle linebacker Who can’t cover. Then we let our promising replacement center go because we couldn’t afford him. Looks to me like we lost three good players, gained one overpriced average one and not much else worthwhile. Seems to me that excluding the draft pick, which we could have made anyway, that there is less talent on the offensive line this year than last year. How is this focusing on the line? Shouldn’t we already be shouting for Gettleman’s head?Ed says: No, fans shouldn’t be screaming for Gettleman’s head. Has every move he has made worked out perfectly? No. That’s the case for every GM of every sports team. The reality of it is the Giants have not been a good team for most of the past six or seven years. That doesn’t get fixed overnight.You wanted Gettleman to spend close to $100 million on Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg — the best players on an offensive line that has been terrible for years? That’s basically advocating the status quo. I happen to like both players, but the brutal truth is neither one plays the position where the Giants absolutely had to have help — left tackle — and neither one is worth the money they got paid. Pugh got five years and $45.025 million. Richburg got five years and $47.5 million.Right now, Pugh is PFF’s 73rd-ranked guard and has given up 15 quarterback pressures. Only three guards have given up more. Gettleman would be getting destroyed if he had given Pugh that kind of money for that kind of bad play. For all the complaints about him, Patrick Omameh (three years, $15 million) has given up nine pressures. Will Hernandez New York Giants Womens T-Shirt , drafted to play Pugh’s left guard spot, is PFF’s third-ranked guard overall.I’m not sure I like what the Giants did at center, but when you think you can adequately fill a position for $40+ million less than you would have had to pay Richburg, I can’t argue with that philosophy. As for how is it focusing on the line, I don’t see any starters (other than Chad Wheeler) who were in the lineup last year. So, yeah, that’s different. They’ve done a lot. Is it perfect, or finished? No, but they have only had one offseason to try and fix something former GM Jerry Reese couldn’t get right for most of a decade.Ed says: Ummm ... I think that’s what they’ve been doing. Quick, underneath throws to try and get yards after catch. They’ve been bowing to the idea that teams are playing soft and forcing the underneath stuff. They need to create more chunk plays, and one way to do that is run the ball more, force the defense to put extra guys at the line of scrimmage and open up lanes down the field. Bubble screens and quick stuff is what we’ve been seeing.JDatchko asks: With hindsight, worse move, signing Jonathan Stewart of trading Brett Jones? Ed says: It seems like many fans want to fry Gettleman for these two moves. Truth is, I understand both of them.I get why the Giants signed Jonathan Stewart. He’s a former first-round pick who has had a lot of success in the league. Gettleman knows him well, knows what kind of person he is, knows he was a good locker room presence in Carolina and knows that he can be a good influence on Saquon Barkley. By all accounts, he has been that for Barkley.When you take over a 3-13 team that had a fractured locker room and a losing culture, finding the right kind of veteran locker room leaders is critical. It’s a big part of why Stewart was signed.Now, did Gettleman overpay Stewart and misjudge how much ability he had left on the field? Yes to both questions. The Stewart contract is a bad one, and before he went on IR he hadn’t shown anything on the field. Again, though, I do understand why Gettleman wanted Stewart to be part of the 2018 Giants.As for Jones, I have also said before that I understand why the Giants traded him. I was surprised by the decision to start Jon Halapio over Jones. Once it was made, though New York Giants Hats , trading Jones made sense. The Giants were desperate for cap space, Jones was one of their few tradeable assets, and we’re finding out that John Greco is just fine at center. I had less problem with trading the guy than I did with not giving him the starting job to begin with. [E-mail Ed at or via the Big Blue View Contact Page | Follow Big Blue View on Twitter | ‘Like’ Big Blue View on Facebook | Follow Big Blue View on Instagram] The first half of the New York Giants season is (finally) over and the team is limping in to their Week 9 bye. They dropped yet another winnable game, falling to 1-7 on the season after losing to the Washington Redskins at home. As we have seen too many times this year, the Giants’ defense played more than well enough to win, holding Washington to just 20 points, 13 for most of the game, but the offense could not capitalize on any opportunity.There was plenty of bad, but there were a few bright spots to be found in the Giants’ mess.Hill, Goodson, and Carter made the most of their opportunitiesWith Damon Harrison on the Detroit Lions and Alec Ogletree injured, those snaps had to go somewhere. The recipients were rookie DT B.J. Hill and LB B.J. Goodson, and the two made good use of their opportunities. Goodson has been a starter alongside Ogletree, but he has been the linebacker taken off the field in nickel situations. In this case, Goodson stayed on the field and was constantly around the ball. He played “okay” dropping in coverage — not great, but probably better than some thought he might given his reputation as a downhill linebacker. But it was going downhill was where Goodson shined. He was consistently around the ball in the run game, making several plays behind the line of scrimmage. Hill made his presence felt throughout the game in both the running game and as a pass rusher. Washington has a great interior offensive line, and Hill was routinely forcing his way in to the backfield. Damon Harrison is still the best nose tackle in the business, but the combination of Hill and Tomlinson are why the Giants could trade him. Lorenzo Carter saw a definite uptick in snaps played as the Giants sought to use his athleticism to improve their pass rush. Carter didn’t get any sacks this game, but he was a constant presence in the Washington backfield and pressured Alex Smith several times. The rookie still has a way to go to harness his physical abilities, but the upside is evident. Quadree Henderson is a keeperIt took three tries for the Giants to get Quadree Henderson on their team and on the field. They showed an interest in him prior to the 2018 NFL draft, sending their special teams coordinator to Pittsburgh’s pro day, as well as hosting him for a pre-draft visit, but didn’t sign him as an undrafted free agent. They had him in for another workout after final cutdowns, but didn’t sign him then New York Giants Womens Hoodie , either. The Giants finally signed him to their practice squad early in October, and he has made plays as a returner since being signed to the 53-man roster. In a season where bright spots and silver linings are few and far between, Henderson’s emergence as a returner is one of them.The offensive line can always get worseThe offensive line was broken and bad in 2017, there was no arguing that it needed attentionand an infusion of talent in the 2018 offseason. But somehow the offensive line is worse than last year, and has been trending downward. Eli Manning was sacked seven (7) times Sunday afternoon, bringing his season total up to 31, which ties the total from all of 2017. In fact, Manning has already been sacked more than all but two seasons (2017 and 2013) in his whole career — he is on pace to be sacked 62 times. Some of those sacks are on Manning, such as the final one where he needed to throw the ball away, but there has still been far too much pressure allowed for any QB to function consistently. Meanwhile, the Giants’ running game continues to be nearly nonexistent, with Saquon Barkley picking up just 38 yards on 13 carries (2.8 yards per carry). The Giants offensive line is ranked dead last in run blocking, and the team has little to show on the ground when Barkley isn’t making a spectacular play.The Giants’ offensive line was bad to start the season and has only been getting worse.The Giants would be crazy to trade Odell Beckham Jr.Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported shortly before the game Sunday that teams were making trade offers for Beckham. The report also said that the Giants were going to “pump the breaks” and “hold off for now” on moving Beckham. Based on what he has done in his career, and especially in a bad, broken offense these past two weeks, the Giants would be crazy to consider moving him any time in the conceivable future. Yes, he is making a lot of money, but he is worth every penny. So far this season he has 61 catches for 785 yards, 16 for 279 in the last two weeks. Beckham is one of the three best receivers in the NFL, the team is better with him than without, and when they do move on to another quarterback, he will be better with Beckham than without.
