Watch: Odell Beckham, Marquise Goodwin have funny dance-off before game

Category : 49ers , Giants , NFL

It’s a known fact that Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. likes to dance — no matter where he is.
Beckham rolled into Levi’s Stadium dressed like Michael Jackson — shoes and all — with the moves to match.

And even when the suit came off, and the pregame warmups went on, the dance moves never stopped. OBJ went onto the field to do his thing before the game kicked off, and he was out there bouncing around to Drake songs. At one point, 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin joined him for a dance-off of sorts, for what ended up being a pretty funny moment.

Landon Collins has angry reaction to Damon Harrison trade

Category : Giants

Giants safety Landon Collins does not appear to be happy that one of the team’s leaders in the trenches was traded away on Wednesday.
Big Blue traded defensive tackle Damon Harrison to the Lions for a fifth-round pick, and the team’s run defense has taken a hit as a result. Harrison was a big body who could shed blocks and also take up space in the interior, making it difficult for opposing running backs to rack up yards inside.
Some of Harrison’s former Giants teammates wasted no time in reacting to the news. Collins shared his thoughts on Twitter shortly after news of the trade broke, and he was not happy.

Pat Shurmur Will Soon Face A Difficult Decision On Eli Manning's Future

The 2018 season has been a catastrophe for the New York Giants so far, and it doesn’t look like things will be getting better anytime soon. First-year head coach Pat Shurmur could not have dreamt up a worse start to his tenure with the Giants, and he soon might be facing a tough decision about the future of the team’s two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback.
During a press conference the day after Thursday night’s 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Shurmur was asked if he was considering a change at quarterback. His response was simple.

Eli Manning is Shurmur’s guy, at least for now. If the Giants continue to play as poorly as they have through the first six games however, it would be hard to justify not playing rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta at some point later in the season.
It would be unfair to only blame Manning for the Giants’ offensive struggles. The offensive line has done a horrendous job of protecting him. He has already been sacked 20 times in six games. The lack of protection has forced Manning to get rid of the ball quickly and throw check-down passes. He usually has not had enough time to throw deep passes.
That being said, Manning has not exactly had his best season. His completion percentage is currently 68.7 and he is averaging only 277 passing yards per game. Manning has thrown just six touchdowns and has been intercepted four times. The 37-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP is finally starting to look like he is reaching the end of his career.
Giant fans probably don’t want to hear this, but it could be time to move on from Manning soon. Shurmur cannot make the same mistake that Ben McAdoo made last season. McAdoo did bench Manning, but it was only for one game and he started veteran quarterback Geno Smith instead of rookie David Webb. If Shurmur does decide to start a different quarterback at some point this year, he has to play Lauletta. The Giants never got to see what Webb could do, and he ended up getting cut right before the start of the 2018 season.
Right now, it’s unclear who the Giants starting quarterback is going to be next year. If the Giants season continues to crumble, Shurmur will hear more calls to start Lauletta. As much as Manning has meant to this franchise, his time is starting to come to an end. The only way we’ll be able to see what Lauletta can do in the NFL is if Shurmur plays him. This might happen sooner than you think.

New York Giants season is a mess, but Saquon Barkley has ability to be the best

After a dismal performance on Thursday Night Football put the New York Giants at 1-5 on the season, it’s hard to imagine that the team is going to get back in the race for the postseason this year.
Eli Manning has struggled, Odell Beckham seems close to complete breakdown and the offensive line is putrid. But it hasn’t all been negative.
Saquon Barkley is an absolute animal and is everything he was hyped up to be when entering the draft. The Giants selected him with the No. 2 overall pick and though some will argue that the team should have chosen one of the top quarterbacks to eventually succeed Manning, Barkley was the right choice.
Just watching Barkley on Thursday night was all the evidence one should need in determining just how good this guy can be, even if that was the first time you’ve seen him play this season.
He finished the game with 229 total yards (130 rushing, 99 receiving) on 22 touches. That is an average of 10.4 yards per touch! He also became the first player in NFL history to record 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first six games of his career.
He hits the hole with a great burst and shows tremendous cutback ability. He makes guys miss and powers through tackles. He can catch the ball and make tacklers miss in space and when he senses the end zone, his breakaway speed sets him apart from nearly every other running back.

He’s special. You could use a slew of other descriptive words, but this guy is special.
How good can he be? The league has a lot of great running backs. Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliott and Le’Veon Bell (whenever he decides he wants to play again), are all in the conversation as the best running back in the league.
But Barkley is just 21 years old. Not only does he have all of that God-given ability, he’s an even better person off of the field, something you can’t always say.
While some would argue that Barkley’s talent is being wasted due to the team he plays for, that is something that will (we hope) get corrected.
The NFL is full of exceptional talent. Patrick Mahomes is turning heads in his first season as a starting quarterback. Aaron Donald is a physical force as a defensive lineman as is Khalil Mack. Antonio Brown and Julio Jones are athletic freaks at the wide receiver position.
And the list goes on….
But Barkley will be the best. Yes, the best. As in best player in the entire NFL. He could be recognized as that as early as next season too, he’s that good.
Now it’s up to the Giants’ front office to recognize what they were fortunate enough to come across and properly build around him.

New York Giants: Don't Blame Eli Manning for the Team's Issues

Is there a player in the NFL who is currently scrutinized more than New York Giants veteran quarterback, Eli Manning? It’s highly doubtful. Man, the last Manning in the NFL sure isn’t having a great ending to his career. A few years back, Eli’s brother Peyton might not have been in the most excellent shape as a quarterback, but at least he got to ride off into the sunset.
Eli, on the other hand, is going to end up getting cut loose from a team that can’t seem to win more than a few games. Honestly, it’s not his fault. I am here to defend Eli Manning. Not because I think that he’s actually secretly playing well or anything. But because the Giants should’ve never assumed that they could keep rolling with Manning under center in the first place.
You can’t get on social media without seeing Eli Manning criticism filling up the timelines of the internet. Giants fans are angry, and all outsider fans are laughing. Yes, the Eli face can be funny when he makes his millionth mistake of the season, but it’s starting to get to the point where it’s so hard not to feel for the guy.
Why Blame Manning For Everything?
Manning’s retirement is at least a good two seasons overdue at this point. But how can you blame the guy for wanting to play more football? The Giants keep bringing him back, so why wouldn’t he continue to play the game that he loves, and the game that he gets paid to play?
Stop blaming Eli Manning for playing bad. Blame the New York Giants for believing that he could still play at an elite level after what we all saw last season. The front office is clueless. They swore he had multiple years left before the season began, and they will continue to stick with him now.
There’s no way anybody could possibly put Manning at fault for these issues. Players never want to stop playing the game. Do you see Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson (Ochocinco?) and many others on Twitter? They are players well over 40 who haven’t played football in years, who swear they can still ball. They would sign a contract to back on the field in a heartbeat.
So, how could anyone get mad at Eli Manning for saying that he thinks he can still play quarterback at a high level? At least he has confidence. Sure, it’s laughable when he says it because we all can see that he’s not, but what’s he supposed to say when a team is counting on him? “I can’t do this anymore?” Of course not.
Just applaud Manning for his confidence, and hope that the Giants give him a sweet pep talk after this season in hopes that he hangs it up. If not, then they have no choice but to cut him loose. He’s finished. It was a good effort, but it should’ve never come to this in the first place. Just cut the man some slack, and point the finger at the Giants at this point.

Watch: Odell Beckham Jr. head-butts, punches fan amid sideline meltdown

Category : Featured , Featured Story , Giants , NFL

It was only a matter of time until Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. lost his cool during a game, and Thursday’s divisional showdown with the Eagles appeared to be that time.
Beckham curiously stormed off the field by himself during the final seconds of the first half (watch here), rather than joining Eli Manning and the Giants offense. Manning threw a pass to Sterling Shepard, but OBJ was not on the field to see it, as he was already en route to the locker room.
Not only that, FOX cameras picked up footage of Beckham beating up on a cooling fan in the third quarter. OBJ was on the sideline at the time, when he walked over to the fan and head-butted it. He then followed that up with a flurry of punches.

Beckham was completely shut down in the game, as he was held to only two catches for 12 yards in the first half. It appeared as if he elected to take his frustration out on that poor fan.

Watch: Odell Beckham Jr. storms off field during game

Category : Featured , Giants , NFL

Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been criticized for his behavior both on and off the field, and he was featured in another controversial moment during Thursday’s game against the Eagles.
This came on the heels of when Beckham was critical of teammate Eli Manning, as well as his coaches, in an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson earlier this week. Rapper Lil Wayne accompanied him for the sit-down, which was a bit odd.
Also odd was what happened in the waning moments of the first half in Thursday’s game against the Eagles, when Beckham walked off the field to the locker room by himself, rather than joining the Giants offense. The Giants ran a play with two seconds left, but Beckham was already in the tunnel — en route to the locker room.

Beckham had only two catches for 12 yards leading up to that point, and he looked visibly frustrated as he walked off the field. It will be interesting to see what explanation is offered for what looked to be another tantrum of some sort, especially given that the Giants made Beckham the highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history roughly six weeks ago.

Dez Bryant heaps praise on Saquon Barkley

Category : Featured , Giants , Hot Reads , NFL

The Giants’ 2017 campaign was an absolute disaster, but at least they have Saquon Barkley to show for it.
New York selected Barkley with the second overall pick in this year’s draft, and it’s clear that the team has a superstar on its hands. Barkley’s ceiling is insanely high, and he’s always drawing comparisons to some of the league’s all-time greats. It’s understandable, as he’s an every-down back who can do it all, with the ability to make defenders miss, catch passes out of the backfield and also block.
Barkley grew up idolizing Barry Sanders, one of the greatest running backs of all-time. Their running styles are somewhat similar, and ex-Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is already likening Barkley to Sanders. Check out what he had to say on Twitter during Thursday’s game against the Eagles.

Barkley instincts are crazy!!!
— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) October 12, 2018

Yea man…Barkley is the real deal
— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) October 12, 2018

whenever somebody do comparisons it’s way off.. the Barkley sanders comparison its 100% legit
— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) October 12, 2018

The game film appears to validate Bryant’s comments, as Barkley resembled Sanders on one particular play in Thursday’s game, when he made a number of Eagles defenders miss, and also hurdled safety Malcolm Jenkins (watch here). He’s a stud, and is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball — even running behind a lackluster offensive line.

Giants-Eagles preview: Which NFC East team will come out on top?

Category : Eagles , Giants , NFL

The reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles haven’t started out their 2018-19 campaign as they had hoped. In fact, their performance has been extremely disappointing thus far.
Philadelphia has lost three of its last four games, and must now travel for a road game on a short week — to play on Thursday night. And, in a sense, it’s kind of a must-win spot, so the pressure is on. If the team should win and get to .500, with a big divisional victory in its pocket, it’ll be back on track. But a loss would drop them to last place in the NFC East, and playoff hopes would take a big hit.
To their credit, the Eagles boast the second-ranked run defense in the league, and they have the stout defensive front to make Giants running back Saquon Barkley’s job difficult. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is great at rotating linemen in and out, and he utilizes their depth in that area to mask the weaknesses in the secondary.
The Eagles do come into the game extremely undermanned, as the injuries have piled up for them, which sometimes happens to a team that had a long season/last played in February. Both starting tackles Lane Johnson and Jason Peters could be out, as they’re listed as questionable, which would be a big hit, as the Eagles have struggled with protection this year as is. And on the other side of the ball, Giants star pass-rusher Olivier Vernon appears on track to make his season debut. Running back Darren Sproles is also questionable, which could make Corey Clement the featured back, a job he’s not really suited for. The Eagles are also thin in the secondary, with cornerback Sidney Jones and safety Corey Graham listed as questionable. The Giants are pretty healthy, and tight end Evan Engram could possibly return to the field as well, which could give the passing game a huge boost.
This is a tough game to predict — and you can get some advice on it from this betting intelligence site — given how many injuries the Eagles have to star players. The Giants have had success running the football in the past few weeks, but the Eagles stop the run better than any other team. If they can do that and generate pressure on Eli Manning, they’ll be able to get stops, and possibly a turnover or two. For the Eagles, it’ll come down to protecting Carson Wentz, and making sure the team’s playmakers don’t commit costly mistakes to kill drives — which helped the Vikings emerge victorious on Sunday. The Eagles defense should set the tone, though, and figures to get a big stop late to help the team hold on, and Philly will right the ship — with extended time to rest up for its next game, which it desperately needs, given all the injuries the team is dealing with.
Prediction: Eagles 23, Giants 20
