"Spent in free agency signing various guys that were unexpected but helped fill needs very much so for this giants team that needed improvement especially on the defensive side of the ball in terms of the position group that improved the most. Chris and I both agreed here that the cornerbacks were the most improved for the various obvious signing of James Bradberry from the Carolina Panthers signing for that three year deal joining a young but still talented corner group and then adding that veteran presence which helped really mold out in shape out the remainder of that position group. Yeah yeah hopefully. Bradberry will serve as like a veteran for the giants cornerback group. Take the pressure area. Like we've mentioned before. Take the pressure off of Deandra Baker in Sam Beal Corey Ballantyne Grant Haley. And whoever else happens to wind up in that group but by the time all is said and done hopefully he can be that number one corner who shadows the opposing number one receiver who can play press coverage hopefully force quarterbacks to hold the ball just a little bit longer maybe give the pass rush more time to get there and also help the giants not just hemorrhage big plays on the back end when they have to blitz or when they decide to blitz to dial up more pressure more pass rush bradberry was really the giants biggest signing and really his presence made for the biggest improvement of any of the Of the of any of the position groups yet of adding Bradbury had probably the most impact to any position group which is why we consider them to be the most improved for a period of time. And I think we even said this during those early offseason breakdowns. The cornerback group was not the weakest but one of the weaker position groups just because of the fact that they were they were very young. They didn't have a lot of experience. And that was what was leading to a lot of issues in the secondary overall. So you bring in James Bradberry. He can step in and start and B that number one corner for you. Take a lot of the attention off of the Andre Baker Corey Ballantyne Sam Bill. Whoever else is out there on the field at corner they don't have to guard number one receivers like we saw Baker having to do towards the end of the season and we saw him struggling doing so sue. Bribery can step in. He can immediately start. He can play and have a pretty big impact similar to what we got from Janoris Jenkins in his first year with the giants being able to step in and play in slowdown number one receivers in terms of an honorable mention though in a close runner up. We considered the linebacker group to be not close behind them but right behind them in terms of how much they improved. You talk about getting rid of a clear liability defense INALCO. Gotree was not the same player that he was early on in his career. Not really registering things and moving the same way that he used to be able to get him. Get rid of cream Martin and then you bring in Blake Martinez. Who is an underrated linebacker? Who We talked in full depth on Tuesday about his impact in what he can bring to the table. You've a guy that can step right in. Play Mike Linebacker in help round out that group as soon as they figure out what they're going to be doing it will linebacker. I think that this linebacker group take took a very big step forward as we're talking before before we started recording. The giants got rid of a liability. And edit a viable starter in. This isn't as big of a step forward. Jump as the cornerbacks made with James Bradberry but hopefully Martinez can help with the communication problems. He can hopefully process information more quickly and even though he might not be athlete that Tree was or even is hopefully he can do the mental footwork to put himself in position to make plays rather than watching opposing players. Just run right past him. While he's guarding turf. I kind of brought this during our last show. I don't think his signing precludes the giants from adding another linebacker like you said a will linebacker an athletic guy who can have that who can lockdown that coverage role in the middle. But just having a guy who you hope can be the quarterback of the defense who can communicate who can play chess game with the opposing quarterback who can effectively relay the play. Call from the sideline into the defense communicate with whoever the free safety will be having that guy there. That's that's big for a defense. In terms of what position group did not improve in his now currently the worst on this roster and when we say worst it's not so much that abysmal and they're they're not going to be able to perform but rather one. That still is a need for this team leading into the draft and a clear cut answer for this because of their lack of ability to sign any bigger name available free agents to fix glaring needs. That is the offensive line. They did not sign anyone. Besides Cameron Fleming. Who's been a backup lineman for his entire career? He can step in and playwright tackle if needed but he is probably not the best possible solution. There's nobody out there really available besides if you talk about Jason Peters or Trent Williams but the odds of getting them or pursuing them seem pretty low because there has been not any tied to the giants even considering them so no available. Options made very minimal improvement because of all of that. It's pretty clear that this offensive line group is currently the biggest need heading into the draft yet like you said they don't have a starter in an obvious starter at right tackle at the moment. It seems they're planning for. The center is either Spencer. Poli or hope John. Hello can recover from a ruptured Achilles in time for the season and honestly even both of them were completely healthy. I wouldn't be terribly excited about that plan. We've seen both of those guys. Neither one is really starting caliber center so the offensive line. It has holes at two positions that is just not a good position to be in looking ahead to the season no and there's multiple positions along that line like you said center and right tackle that currently still need players You don't really know. The solution is at that center spot. You don't know for sure if Cameron Fleming will be starting at right tackle or if they're using somebody like Nick Gates. Any of those backup guys. That didn't contribute a ton but did step in last year. You don't know for sure who's going to actually be that right tackle. It's clear though now that come draft time that they're going to have to draft someone. It can't be like last year where they waited until the very end of the draft to take a tackle that is developmental in might not really be able to start right away. They're going to have to take somebody within those first two rounds if they want to address and fix the offense of line do at least take a step forward and improve. It are honorable mention for biggest. Need out of any position. Group was the safety position. The did not really make any significant signings. You can include driven. Ask You Henry in that. They got rid of Antoine Bethesda. So a step backward. You still do obviously have Julian Lavin Gerbil peppers but we did feel that if you get rid of Antoine Bethesda. They should have been bringing in somebody else to join the mix hit it. Exactly the giants don't really have a free safety or at least a free. A free safety that we know will be a good free safety you. We saw Julian love step on the field and play well last year but he stepped on the field and played well in Djibril peppers role. He wasn't really the free safety. That was Antwan Bethesda and he had his issues at free safety most notably the fact that he did he just doesn't have any range left so we don't really know if the giants are going to ask love to transition from that kind of box safety slash slot corner role that he played Give that back to Djibril peppers and then have loved played free safety or will. They leave love where he played. Well possibly keep playing peppers. Close to the line of scrimmage where he has played his best end maybe looked to the draft to find another free safety or we just don't know what's going to happen right now. So it's it's tough to have a lot of confidence in that position when one of the most important positions in your secondary is currently vacant so Chris. Here's a really interesting thought that I had when we were talking about the linebackers and I think it goes in line with this discussion. Because of this specific player you can probably guess who about a pitch deal so maybe the here because they do still need a will linebacker and they're still missing that additional piece at safety. Maybe this is the giants approach to okay. We can't get any of the guys that we want free agency. There's no one really that we see as viable starters and there's a guy that we can get very likely at the fourth overall pick who can play both of these things and we can move around and get creative with him so maybe this is some type of not an intentional set to get. Isaiah Simmons but rather putting themselves in a position if they can't get some of those early guys like Chase Young. They say themselves all right. We have needs at will linebacker. We have needs as an additional safety. Why don't we take Isaiah Simmons or if they don't take Simmons? It opens up the conversation for Jeremy Chin. Or Kyle Duggar more so as a safety but if they want to use them as a rotational sub package linebacker any of those guys could very well be in play because both of those position groups are of need. And just so happens. You have three guys in this year's class that can play those positions yet. I think they are set up to be able to do something like that. It just really depends on whether or not Patrick. Graham is his defense in scheme are set up to run like that. I've been reading a lot about the three three three stacked odd front air raid killer. There it goes by a bunch of different names defended kind of more or less pioneer bio state aspects of. It have been taken up by a bunch of different schools. The New England patriots have been running aspects of it over the last two seasons and getting a guy like Isaiah. Simmons Kyle Duggar Jeremy Chen perhaps even using Djibril peppers in that kind of will linebacker. Box Safety Hybrid. Role is a big part of that defense. Basically it's difficult to explain. In limited time without a whiteboard but it it more or less normalizes the middle linebacker dropping into a deep safety role from the Tampa two and plays it in an odd front. If that makes any sense at all. There's probably a post I'm going to have to do on this time or at the very least in the in the host host for this podcast all link a piece mark. Scofield did on the air a killer but getting one of those athletic hybrid safety linebackers could be a way to run that defense and it can be very very effective against a spread. D A spread offense. I'm going to Amazon prime. You'll whiteboard you can put together a video of breaking this down. So you can fully articulate your thoughts on it but I do agree. It's probably not the easiest thing to explaining podcast where it's only audio people can't really see what you're trying to break down. It's just it's just one of those things that you try to talk about coverages and plays and it's like well you don't know what this looks like..

"As as the New York giants get ready to face the Dallas cowboys in Monday night football here at the end of week nine of the NFL season and just wanted to talk about a few giants related things before we get to a cowboys giants preview interview that I did with Rj a chore of SP nations blogging the boys always enjoy talking RJ. And I hope that that you guys will enjoy the interview that he and I did as we lead beat up to to the Monday night game of few few things about the giants you know as I as this is the beginning of the second half of the season and in the first half two and six obviously disappointing obviously not what the giants had hoped for look back on it and quite obviously the giants left a couple of winnable games you know on the table week two against the buffalo bills was a game that that I think we all thought that the giants had an opportunity to win look back at that game and there were some circumstances in that game some things that happened that that prevented the giants from winning winning the bills are a little bit better than than we thought up but that was still a winnable game of the game last week even against the Detroit the Detroit Lions definitely a winnable game even though it was on the road in Detroit five point loss in which the giants you cost themselves a touchdown on an unfortunate backward pass by Daniel Jones that turned into a Detroit touchdown some other circumstances that prevented the giants you know from from scoring points in that game also gave up a couple of long touchdown plays including including a forty nine yard touchdown pass winnable game five point loss that that could have been a giant victory the sore point that sticks sticks out as you look back at the giants first half of the season was losing at home to the Arizona cardinals a team that's not better than the giants team that it came in as the underdog came into metlife stadium as the underdog and jumped out to a seventeen zero lead that has to be the the the most disappointing game of the first half of the season look at the two and six giants though n. n you think you look at the record and you don't see much progress from a year ago when they were one in seven but I think you do see some progress in terms the roster that's on the field I think there there are more young players there are more pieces to build around there are more players on this roster who you want to get second contract guys you WanNa keep long-term I guess the best way to put it is there are more players on this roster who can be part of the solution going forward than I think there have been in quite a while there are obviously still holes to fill still work to be he done but there are more pieces to feel good about more more parts of the puzzle than there have been in quite a while so so what what I really WanNa talk about though is the second half of the season and specifically tonight's game against the Dallas Cowboys let's focus on on tonight I I mean if you look at the at the staff picks column at Big Move You know one is picking the giants to win on and Sunday night that is justifiable I'm not picking them to win either but let's be honest there have been some signs over the past few you days that are positive ones for the giants Sterling Shepherd will return saquon Barkley should be even healthier than he who was as he continues to to get better and get farther away from that weak week three high ankle sprain that he suffered the giants should be the best that they've been in terms of health in terms of of of what they bring to the table offensively they should it'd be the best that they've been all season with shepherd with saquon Barkley with Golden Tate with Evan Ingram Grimm all playing for the first time this season you have Daniel Jones at quarterback and he will have his full complement of of offensive playmakers for the first time this year will see what the giants can can make of that will begin to see what head coach Pat Shurmur really we really wants the New York giants offense to look like with all of his playmakers on the field the other reason for optimism you know you look at the the defensive side of the ball giants made trade last week four Leonard Williams which adds talent adds a former top ten of the first round pick to the defense offense they added Dion Buchanan a couple of weeks ago and he should continue to play more and more looks like the giants will mostly play him probably the guy who loses snaps to him his his David Mayo and and I find that a little bit unfortunate Mayo has played well but Mayo does have have issues in pass coverage where I think the giants believed that the own Buchanan can can upgrade giants in that area will see how that goes I like Mayo as a player I also you know I supported bringing in Buchanan so let's get him on the field let's see what he's got let's see if he can be part of the long term solution going forward going into the twenty twenty season and we'll see we'll see where that goes but you know the giants have added a couple of pieces on defense you know over the past couple of weeks so there's that to feel good about also we found out on Sunday Sunday that there's a possibility that that pro bowl linebacker latent vandereycken won't play for the Dallas Cowboys evanger Russia's a tremendous player at the second level of the of the of the Dallas defense so that's a huge loss for the cowboys boy if he doesn't play in a huge break for the giants so there are some some positive signs some things that might sort of tilt the table toward the giants just a little bit giants are seven point underdogs but You know those those things might give you reason in for optimism I know the giants are many of the guys in the secondary are also still upset regarding you know being mocked a little bit by the cowboys for some of the mistakes that they made in the week one loss to Dallas so there's a little bit of a little bit of revenge little bit of motivation factor there as well will you know when it comes down to it I believe at this point in time that the cowboys remain a better team than the giants will see hey how Monday night turns out there's no way that I could go out on the limb of actually picking the giants to win this game and I didn't do that in Dr Staff Picks Column at at Big Blue View I would expect a Dallas victory on Monday night but there are some signs of you know that the giants could could have an opportunity for an upset here and we'll see how it goes but you know also as we look forward to the second half of the two thousand in nineteen season I find some reasons for optimism with the New York giants and most of that has to do with the young talent on the roster you have a developing developing young quarterback in Daniel Jones we've seen some of the really good things from Jones we've seen you know some of the words some of the places where he needs development I think you can be optimistic about his future and I think it'll be fun to watch and see how how he develops in the second half of the season we've also seen you know one of the things we ask for with so many of the young players I think there was a stat from field yates of ESPN the other day that he put out that the giants have used rookies for far more snaps at least five hundred hundred more snaps than any other team in the NFL which just points to development the the youth that the giants have and the growth growth that you can hope for and I think that what we've seen with some of these young players we've seen Dexter Lawrence the the seventeenth overall pick I think we've seen him get better from week one to week eight I think you can feel good about about his development continuing to to go in an upward trend trend I think we've seen De'andre Baker the first round pick at corner I think it was thirtieth overall we've seen him improve from week one to week eight that's what you want from your young players we're seeing more and more impact from wide receiver Darius Slayton the fifth overall pick so you look at those young players and you want them to trend upward and I think that's what we're seeing with the giants so I think there are some reasons for optimism we'll see if any more of the young players will see if Julian Lavin Corey Ballantyne Sam bill some of those young players are able to make an impact over over the final half of the season but I do feel like there are reasons to be optimistic about the giants heading into the second half and particularly particularly when you spend forward looking toward you know what the giants could be next season when Dave gettleman has a chance to breath to go through another draft has a chance to to use some of the the cap space that the giants have created to perhaps a couple of of veteran players at at key spots and I think there are reasons to feel good about the giants going forward word so so we'll see what happens the second half of the season and we'll see what happens on Monday night giants fans let's do this right now let's take a quick break for word from our sponsors and will come back in here the interview that I did with Rj Ocho of blogging the boys check out the American Ninja Warrior.

"Down the field on at least get the ball up and give them a shot to make a catch a bit of an olive branch. They're being extended from Notre Dame when he throw the ball out wide, if you'd be very tough. To pick your way through the speed and the lettuce system of that linebacker level for Clemson fourth-down Bill, and they got a kick it right back. Trevor Lawrence Tigers. Yeah. And they've been missing Notre Dame. I'm talking about now Julian Lavin that secondary. He is one of their best corners at a heck of a game against USC. But something went wrong with him. In this game has been on a bike. He's been standing around on the sidelines. Trying to get back in the game. I have been vulnerable. It's hard to overstate that loss, especially when he got Dante bond coming in behind love and to give the Tigers credit. They recognize Vaughn in the game and they'd gone after him. Newsom wilpon and back deep Amari Rogers, snap just setting up return here. Here's the kick. Just going to let it go is ten yards deep monster that time. So with forty eight seconds on the clock that punt traveled fifty nine yards a good one by Tyler Newsom. So Clemson back on the field. And they lied sixteen to three forty eight seconds to go in the first half. And they'll be looking for more. Here's trouble Lawrence and company will start at their twenty five yard line. Don't forget at halftime marquess shirt back in the studios with what else happened earlier today in bowl games, and sizing up Alabama and Oklahoma. Clemson all in orange white numerals, orange helmets damage, white gold gold helmets and duck. Moore's works out. We got to put it up swings. It out to the near sideline the arms Lamari Rogers trying to make a man missed but a good tackle it open space. Nick colon. Get these backups and new like Coleman stud stills been out there. Number fourteen short gain on the play. Take time off the clock here inside thirty seconds. Lawrence has to be careful with the football doesn't look like the Tigers are very serious about getting down the field and scoring looks like somebody from Notre Dame jumped unless he was drama offside that was. Doreen? That Austin official process crew working this game. Now, he's talking it over the three different of fficials to see just was drawn off. Or did somebody move with the offensive line? He's gonna tell us right now. Fifty three. Clubs it head coach has declined, but ten seconds attraction. Sweeney says Moore they wanted to let ten seconds come off the clock and. He's a bit of a riverboat gambler twenty three seconds. He's got. Maybe the most talented, arm and football, true freshman, so. And take another shot here. And see if you can get a ball down the field and getting position to really start thinking about a field goal to our wide receivers. Each side is Lawrence throws far side of the field that ball is contrary to get out of bounds, Amari Rogers. And he does gets the first down to thirty three. The Nick Holden on the tackle. So that stops the clock with seventeen seconds to go in the half. And a first down. Clemson Clemson only one time out. So Trevor Lawrence is going to have to hit a chunk ball. Here. Notre Dame has to be careful back into the secondary. You're not allow a tiger to get over the top wide out. But some of these seconds of the clock Kamath Lawrence with two hundred twelve yards passing here of the first half seventeen to twenty four. Here's his twenty fifth attempt down the middle of the field wide open after thirty five pop tart that's harder Renfro gonna have to hurry or nine seconds to go. It's a first down in Davos. He will call his final time out thirty two yards on that pass play. Roughing the passer call against the run. I out. Oh, you watch the sky and he saw many ACC championship game down in Charlotte. That was a shot delivered by Jerry Tillery late on Lawrence, cheap shot to the Chastel. If I'm the referee. I walked up to Tillery and let them know thinking about throwing him out of the game there because that was intentional violent hit dangerous hit about this ball from Trevor Lawrence. I mean, he's got beautiful feet in the pocket his platform as they say his balance the way delivers the football, the weight distribution the deliveries quick, it's tight. And this is a ball down the center of the field way too easy for Notre Dame. You can't allow.
