  Giants | Two promoted from PS    Tue Sep 16, 05:57 PM

New York Giants WR Julian Talley and LB Dan Fox were promoted to the team's active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 16, filling the spots left by WR Jerrel Jernigan and CB Walter Thurmond, who were both placed on Reserve/Injured.

Footballguys view: With Jernigan out for the year, the Giants turn to Talley to take his spot. They've got the market cornered on UMASS wide receivers (Victor Cruz is the other one), and Talley is speedy in the open field. He can give them decent depth at wide receiver, but he's not the threat as a receiver that Jernigan was. Talley can also be used as a return man.

We have 48 hours until kickoff and if we keep coming in the right direction, I could play. If I had to, I could play tomorrow. We have got two days, so that is good,'' said Weatherford, who doesn't anticipate having to change his technique. "No, I felt like I could accelerate through the ball. I'm not going to win a 40-yard dash race right now, but I feel good.''

  Giants | Eli Manning has support from coordinator    Fri Sep 12, 06:52 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has struggled to pick up the team's new West Coast offense in four preseason games and the regular season opener, but offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo continues to believe that Manning is the right guy for the job. "He is the perfect fit for this offense," McAdoo said. "He is very smart. I thought that if there was anything encouraging about what happened in the game (the 35-14 loss to the Detroit Lions), it was the comfort level with his feet and the progress that he is making fundamentally." McAdoo said that progress is coming, but 'we aren't going to apologize' if it takes weeks or longer. McAdoo also said that he wants to get the ball to WRs Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle more often.

  Giants | Eli Manning a work in progress    Thu Sep 11, 04:16 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning struggled to grasp the team's new West Coast offense in the preseason, and it carried over into Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. Arizona Cardinals head coach and offensive guru Bruce Arians thinks it could take as long as half a season to reprogram a veteran quarterback in a new offense. 'I try to never judge a quarterback in a new offense until Week 8,' Arians said. He said QB Carson Palmer didn't understand their new vertical attack last year until Week 8.

Footballguys view: Interestingly, in an interview with Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports and 120Sports.com, former Giants backup David Carr says he saw Manning using old hand signals from Gilbride's offense just prior to one of the interceptions last week. Now as Carr pointed out, he isn't involved in the new offense so he has no idea if they use some of the same hand signals, but there was something off on both picks and clearly Manning and his receivers are not in sync. If Manning is trying to audible or change plays and is either mixing up signals or using the wrong ones or the receivers are not clear on what they mean, it would go a long way towards explaining the dysfunction here. We wouldn't start Eli Manning anytime soon and have him as a QB3 right now. Could he surpass that this week as the Arizona Cardinals force a shootout? Perhaps, but it's safer to avoid him until they get this sorted out.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. sits    Thu Sep 11, 02:52 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: This is not news one would file under "BREAKING" as Beckham has practiced a grand total of two days since OTAs. Even when he does return he is woefully behind the rest of the receivers in getting his timing down with Eli Manning. As desperate as they are for some juice on offense, Beckham isn't going to be it for some time.

  Giants | Victor Cruz wants more targets    Tue Sep 9, 06:11 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz thinks the offense will improve if more targets are directed his way. 'In order for us to be successful I think there needs to be an increased number of targets in my direction,' Cruz said, on a conference call with reporters. 'And other playmakers' directions, just like Rueben Randle as well, in my opinion.' Cruz had only six targets and finished with two grabs and 24 yards in the team's Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions Monday, Sept. 8. Randle was targeted only three times for two catches and one yard. The Giants offense as a whole was unproductive against the Lions after looking poor in the preseason.

Footballguys view: We have a feeling that Cruz will get his wish going forward. Six targets for one of the most explosive playmakers is ridiculous. The Giants should emphasize Cruz each and every week from here on out.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. officially out    Sat Sep 6, 02:57 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is officially out for Monday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: No shock here and even had he made it into the game, how effective would he have been given that he hasn't practiced much in this offense? Even when Beckham returns he may not fit into the offense for some time as this is a complex offense which requires timing with a quarterback-something ODBjr hasn't had a chance to build.
