"You try to figure out where Atlanta gets pressure from and it appears they're going to be reliant on a rookie, Arnold. I like the potential and upside. That's a lot to ask in year one. You bring in Lorenzo Carter, who's this athletic freak. He's supposed to bring pressure off the edge, but you look through four seasons. He's been in above average outside linebacker who's best attribute has been in coverage, not getting pressure. The second rounder from last year, a gunda J delivered a 4% pressure rate on pass rush snaps last season. I just don't see a ton here. Linebacker group was not great. I love Dion Jones. One of the best three down backers. The problem is he's on the puppy and apparently Jones is getting close to coming off the pup. He was on the field for the first time, I believe it was Thursday, the 18th. But if you listen to some of the reports coming out of there, there are some rumors swirling that the falcons are trying to trade Deion Jones, there's been a clash in personality and the relationship isn't great with the new regime. Let's see how that unfolds. I will give dean peace credit. I think the falcons corners, which you hinted at there Todd. Are very good. That's important when you're running a nickel based scheme, 73% of the falcons defensive snaps were played with 5 defensive backs. AJ Terrell proving all the draft day cynics wrong. I think we thought he was a little bit overdrafted. He'll have 200 receiving yards when in coverage for the entire season last year. Terrell was thrown at 66 times and only allowed 29 to be caught. That's less than a 44% catch rate. That was best in the league. Passes thrown into Terrell's coverage generated a 47 password. That was also the best mark among qualifying corners. I like Casey Hayward more than most. He does turn 33 in a couple of weeks, but he's coming off another great season. He returned to his 2018 form last year allowed less than 51% of targets to be caught. No projected starting cornerback tandem allowed less receiving yards than Terrell and Hayward when targeted last year. I also like DL fort supposedly. He's coming on. He was a CFL standout, had a great camp, should be a nice piece the falcon secondary has passed Terrell and Hayward. You still have Isaiah Oliver, who's been a reliable slot corner. Don't love the safeties, though. And that could ultimately hinder Atlanta's secondary from grading out as well as it should. But you mentioned at the very top that Atlanta has been getting faded by professional bettors. You are correct, right? Under 5 pretty much was taken off the board by pros and you're now looking at four and a half pretty much across the board. Hey, it's all about finding small victories this season a few of the Atlanta Falcons, they could be few and far between maybe you find yourself rooting for an O one 17 campaign. From the Atlanta falcons to maybe one of the more intriguing teams, not just in the division, but in the entire NFC, that of course being the Carolina Panthers who are a 101 long shots at FanDuel sports book to win the Lombardi trophy, 15 to one to finish atop the NFC south. And when you're looking at their win total, 6 and a half shaded to the under, you have to lay a dollar 25 to get involved there. And when you look at Carolina in the way that this franchise is trended in charlottes and David tepper has taken over, not exactly all roses by any stretch of the imagination. 22 and 43 and 65 games, zero winning seasons, zero playoff appearances. And when you look at Carolina last year, they thought they had the answer in Sam darnold after they started off the campaign with three straight victories. They end up going two and 12 over their final 14 games. It was actually the worst record in the National Football League over that span, crazy enough as we know about the volatility at head coach. Matt rule has become the longest tenured head coach in the entire NFC south and we'll see if the magical third year can pay dividends in Charlotte, the same way rule was able to get the most out of his Baylor bears. And before that, the temple owls, pain, of course, when you look at Carolina, this defense probably a little bit overrated and we'll get to them in a minute, but the reality of things in Charlotte was that this offense was downright awful and inefficient for extended stretches, outgo Sam darnold to the backup role incomes Baker Mayfield and I'm sure Panthers fans can only hope that Christian McCaffrey can stay on the football field for at least 15 games. I'm with you in terms of intrigue with Carolina somehow an uninteresting team projected to finish third in its own division is totally consuming. There are just so many moving parts that come with massive variants and wide ranging possibilities that I've kind of been sucked down the Carolina Panthers wormhole. You look at Ben mcadoo, new Panthers OC we bashed him as the Giants head coach, I think, along with other informed analysts and we were right, he was horrific. But in his defense, we were he was terrible. At no level had he ever been a head coach, not in high school, college or the NFL prior to the Giants giving him that job. And then mcadoo also was from the Mike McCarthy coaching tree, which nobody really respects anymore. In saying all that, strictly as an offensive coordinator. Ben mcadoo's first time calling plays in that role was for the giants in 2014. The Giants did finish 15th in offensive efficiency against the top ten schedule of defenses that season in 2013, the year before mcadoo got there, the Giants finished 30th in offensive efficiency against the 6th easiest schedule of defenses. So maybe we see this uptick that mcadoo facilitates in year one and you get that leap. Maybe Carolina when you look at them as much as I respect Joe Brady, the clear element there was like him and Matt rule, but it heads did not get along. And from what I'm being told, inside the Caroline organization, the transition from Brady to mcadoo. Has been fantastic. The vibe within those walls is that mcadoo is a really good offensive coordinator that he can handle everything being thrown at him and adjust on the fly and because of that. Matt rule, trust mcadoo. And there's been this divide between offense and defense. And Matt rule isn't micromanaging the offense anymore. And he doesn't have to juggle 20 different responsibilities. Because of that, right? You have your GM Scott fitterer Matt rule. They feel better about where things stand heading into this season. Now, over the last 96 hours, it leaked at Baker Mayfield won the starting job, Matt roll came out and refuted that in the postgame presser Friday after the Patriots game. But I think that's a good assumption, right? And clearly the news leaked from someone within the Panthers organization. And I've seen enough data to think Mayfield should start over darnold comfortably. The interesting thing here about Mayfield. As I found a quote from 2018. It was Ben mcadoo's final season with the Giants.

"Now. Not at all Huey in saint louis. What's up man. Hey could what do you got for us. So i felt compelled to call on him and listen to this conversation. So i'm one hundred percent agreement crude and had to be fired but boomer. This is really more for you to hypocrisy with the nfl. They're still paying shawn watson. Despite the fact that he's been accused of assaulting twenty four women. Yeah higher snoop dogg and these other rappers to halftime shows. And i guarantee his lyrics or ten times worse than anything. Jon gruden putting those emails. So where does the nfl draw the line here. That's a good question you know. That's that's something. War a bigger discussion. That i can actually get myself into well as far as the shawn watson thing you know. Those were allegations right that that has not been seen all the way through yet. I mean there's there's a lot of people that want to make sure that you know someone with the due process and he has to be found guilty and imagine if you were accused somethin- an all of a sudden. You never got paid again. You don't want that either so that's a completely different thing. As far as entertainment goes. I mean there is a difference between someone performing halftime shown being a head coach of an nfl football team but the nfl is going to be pulled by certain things and you know taunting penalties on the field. There is something. There is a little bit of hypocrisy there but it is to me. You can't put john gruden's job in the nfl and what the halftime performers are being asked to do for twelve minutes in the same silo but you could definitely say that the nfl who was so scared for years scared. They were always a part of the abbey as broadcasting. That had janet jackson justin timberlake. I mean they. I dusted off every old. Rock guy boy may you. You're going to be reading a lot about this in the coming weeks. And you're gonna be reading about the dichotomy of one. Jon gruden in what's going on at halftime and that's going to be the argument. There's and there's going to be the hypocrisy on both sides going back and forth much like we see in the political arena day of the year. Now she's every time you turn on one channel or another.

Gruden resigning you guys have talked about it. At length the last segment was pretty much about it. So i will continue onto the monday night. Football game where the ravens were down to the colts. Twenty two to three in the third quarter and the ravens would come back. The cult had a chance to win at the end of regulation and didn't the snap put down right. Footed kick his up in good goody left no good on the clock overtime in baltimore. This crowded priest. Kevin harlan watson and rightly so from twenty two to three down to even twenty five in a matter of basically seventeen minutes because they were down that score with the two and a half to go in the third quarter or so but it was lamar jackson that guided his team on this comeback. He was throwing touchdown passes to mark andrews and then in the overtime the game would have markey's brown and they want winning thirty one twenty five. Is they go to four. And one on the season. Now at the end of that clip from kevin harlan. He talks about the the fans. Going crazy we'll hear. Was john hardball with much appreciation for that crowd. Just off the charts are fans. Were incredible and they stuck with us. You know it was frustrating game and our fans stuck with us throughout the course of the game. And that really. That's a big deal to players coaches. I promise you really gives gives you a lot of energy really helping. Lamar jackson had a lot of energy. He was barely missed. He was thirty seven of forty three. Four hundred forty two yards passing three touchdowns no picks sixty two yards rushing. That's what you call having yourself a nice now. We played the field goal. There was also a blocked field goal in the mix as well that probably would have sealed it for indie. Jackson says they were discussing that blocked field goal possibility on the sidewalk. They visit they bought. You'll have a chance to score down by eight. They end up blocking here. We got we need it. You know that was part. I'm sorry jerry knows. Say they got the two touchdowns they also got the two point conversions while time right in that second two point conversion tomorrow andrews was amazing. A how he caught that ball and was able to stay with. It was was terrific terrific catch on his part as good. Throw by lamar but it was not. It wasn't wide open. I mean he had a guy right on his back in ball was back shoulder and somehow he held onto it but klaas campbell. I feel like has been the leaf twenty-five years every turn on a game. There's klaas camp right in the middle of everything. And he comes up with a huge. I mean a huge block and he's six foot eight and somehow as they were saying last broadcast he got skinny. Alley carson wentz. He played really well too in the loss. He four hundred two yards passing couple of touchdowns. No pigs lose a fumble here. He was there one in four not good. We got to be able to finish games when put teams away when we got him on the ropes. Like that and that's a good football on the hostile environment for us to come out swinging the way we did. We just can't let up. We can't let up and we got to finish games better which they have not done at the season which is why they are now. Three games under five hundred through the i five Meantime giants receiver canarias. Tony did meet the media yesterday. I don't know if this was zoom call or what but He was talking about the punchy through in dallas on sunday and essentially says my bad. Everybody makes mistakes and stuff like that but at the end of the day you know we always have to be account. Most of the novel no is also and he said that was not the right way to defend the player. He knows that now and essentially said it won't happen again. Lorenzo carter who had the interception in dallas on sunday off dak prescott sees his team and where they are now at one in four says no quickness put in a lot of work in way too much. But that's not going to keep working rookie coming out fighting. Just don't know who's going to be coming out on sunday when they play the rams because of all the injuries that they have sustained meantime jets head coach. Rob sala checking out the film. They have a bi week. Do the jets before they play the patriots next week. So he was looking at. Zach wilson. Obviously the kid has struggled for much of the time. The second half consistency was.

"We're taping this wednesday. He showed up for practice. I think he was in pads. He stretched with the team and then when they went to do individual stuff. You went in to get work done. Kramer you're saying off air that listen. This is week one. They're gonna shoot these guys. They're going to be good to go. The guys that are on the bubble usually play week one so as a guy who is definitely going to be on the denver broncos. I'm not gonna would that chubb shows up because that's going to be huge either way. I'm so out on this giants offensive line you are. And i think daniel jones is gonna fumble which is pretty easy predictions to have considering this many games into his career. Second all time in the nfl. For number of fumbles led the league in two thousand nineteen and twenty twenty in fumbles despite only playing twelve games at twenty thousand nine hundred and thirteen last season on the other side. You have teddy bridgewater why they give the keys to the car to teddy bridgewater. 'cause he plays a clean game he doesn't turn the ball over. They're going to lose the turnover battle. The giants and i don't think their offense can overcome that darius. Tony your buddy kenny golladay. They were dealing with injury and covert issues. All preseason all training camp didn't have any time to build chemistry with daniel jones and barkley is still limited in practice. So your high on him Coming back and having a massive game. I think they still limit his touches a little bit especially early. Look here's the way. This game shapes up. I think you can look at the offense is if you want. You can get excited you can. You can say what sean did they chemistry. Maybe that's a problem. I disagree with that. I do you know if you wanna tip on the offense for me. It's i. I think sterling shepherds gonna be open a lot in this game and i think they're gonna use barclay. I think it's all been a you know. A eight barclays going to be out there barclays going to get some plan forty chess with the people or he's just an old man getting fed stuff by joe. Judge the puppeteer at this point. This is a defensive battle in defensive battles. generally you'd say. Hey take the points. Both these teams have questions on the offensive line. Both these teams have what looked to be the giants at least a very good pass rush Some of the guys they were missing last year. Lorenzo carter he's healthy. He was popping off the rookie. Laurie he looks like it could be a guy we got the x. Men come the past. I is going to be there. The back end could be the best in the league sean. So if you're telling me header teddy bridgewater is gonna come in here and shred them through the air. Get outta here. It's going to be a game where they're going to have to win the ground. I trust the giants defense. Both these teams elite defense. You say you take the dog in a defensive battle. The total is only forty two. And you know what i'm going to buy into my guy. Joe judge i'm gonna buy into some of the creative assistance. They brought in from college. That joe jason. Jason learned his lesson. They're going to deploy darius tony in a way week. One that's going to have jumping out of my seat or is one of the. Nfc teams will be wanting to know this week after this week. It's going to be the new york football giants. Sean danny dimes is going to run a little bit. He's going to use his legs. They're going to have some more creative stuff going on in the offense trying. We're gonna be talking about this culture. That joe josiah's built this defense when they shut this team out. All you're calling from columnist. Shutout giants win tuesday teen zero. Okay i will give you an actual score. And it's seventeen seven broncos. Okay so you kind of copying my score and just added to seven understood all right. Let's move on. No but i had the broncos winning because that's that's wrong. I was going to green bay heads to not new orleans. John jackson hold on wait a second. I wrote down here. Green bay and aaron rodgers head to new orleans to take on drew brees. And the dome. But you're telling me this game is being played in jacksonville and jameis. Winston was the quarterback. What kind of dream of. I woke up from a fever dream. Anyone that can show up in the september heat as a home dog and know how to play the quarterback position. It is jameson. Aka jameis winston now. Aaron rodgers and the packers. You could make a case that they're going to carve up the saints secondary because after lattimore it kind of falls off. They've had some injuries. They don't have the quite the cornerback depth that they've had but the saints. Move the game to jacksonville because aaron rodgers struggles in florida. Three and four lifetime record. Seventy eight one. seventy eight point one career passer rating. Green bay is still without their left. Tackle david backyard f. You've noticed a trend. I'm leaning into offensive line. Play an offensive line dynamics but really this new orleans team which is well coached gets up when they're a dog ate into against the spread as an underdog since two thousand eighteen okay. They do usually not not do well in week. One or two two and fourteen against want to however ryan fitzpatrick degree of for the city of new orleans. The area of louisiana. That's got destroyed. Unfortunately by hurricane ida so thoughts and prayers there for the relief effort. But i think they get up for this game. Ryan and i think florida's september he plays into james's favour. James needs this game. He's going to go all in. This is an easy game for green bay to let slip away. See i kind of disagree with you actually. I think that they're distracted. I think they can't destroy angle. Yeah and i think the game that they're gonna come out and destroy is when you know it. Sounds like they're going to host the giants In the first home game back in the dome that'd be awesome. i think. also you're. You're from a candy capping perspective. You know this is a true neutral site games. If you're telling me your power rating has aaron rodgers. only four in this packers team only four points better than the saints on a neutral field. I disagree. I don't think the saints crowd is going to dominate this stadium. Packers fans are everywhere and the second that got moved to pack to jacksonville. How many packers fans who live in that area and live in florida. I'm sure there's a lot of them. They move now. Look it up and so to me as much as i like the story i like james. I you know the offensive defensive lines down there. In in new orleans could be good could be stable enough like you're saying for your eagles to maybe control a game. I'm certainly not going to bet against aaron rodgers in the spot again. What was the narrative. All off-season sean aaron rodgers. Fu mode aaron rodgers fu mode. We have to stand on this. Because i think we are. I the first. What do we want to call it. The first dance the last dance is week. One here turns. aaron rodgers. may look come on. They're not looking ahead this game. They they take care of business. The lines at home next to lions at home and yeah i i get your angle but i'm james in the heat. I'm loving it. This is the game that you're getting too cute on. Because i could see that. Yeah i mean. I think the i think the numbers tricky right when we move sean. You're not making these teams four points neutral. You sure you don't want to change your no sticking with like last away. We're moving on to sunday night. Football how about that. We got we got a doozy sean mcvay in the los angeles rams beautiful sofa stadium los angeles laying.

"Enough last year to put them back in line. Unchain lemieux is like the worst graded guard in the nfl by pro football focus. So we all. I think we all thought this was their biggest neekam in the off season. They made the bull choice. Stick with the guys. They have in the process there. But i think they need to bring in somebody that at least can push especially interior. I think the guards in particular. I'm worried about so if they can bring in a guard that can actually push them. You push hernandez. I think that would be ideal. Yeah the one thing that doesn't make sense to me is giants fans that that are in my time line. Keep pushing for for austin writer who the starting center in in kansas city. A year ago and and to me i get the fact that writer is a is at least an adequate. Nfl center and could do that job but to me that one. That moved doesn't make sense for the simple reason that that you don't want to sort of blow this offensive line up. Because then you've gotta play nick gates at guard and and you're you're you're movin gates to guard at and i don't think that's a road the giants wanna go down right now. I i don't know if you if you feel like that something that they should think about. But but i just don't want to reshuffle everything at this point. Yeah i think that's I think that's a fair point Yeah but i. I mean i like while i agree with you. I don't know if i would rule that. I think they would like if they saw a guy that bayview as like an upgrade at center and then you put negates at right guard i think they would consider doing. I wouldn't do it necessarily but I mean they. They need to get the best five out there. What whatever that looks like. And if you have to move. Nick maybe they move on but i don't know that's it's going to be one of the interesting things this like. This group is already so thin. And then if any of these starters get hurt then there anymore trouble so Again i i get the sense that they're going to try and make either make a trader in grab somebody on the waiver. Wire something like that. But we'll see i find it interesting that that they're in cleveland this week and and the browns happened to be one of those. Nfl teams that happens to have a lot of offensive line depth. And i know there's a lot of giants front office folks You know floating around watching these joint practices. Push comes to shove. I wouldn't be surprised if one of those backup. Cleveland offensive lineman winds up on the giants roster in You know in a couple of weeks. Yeah yeah they've they have a couple of interesting guys guy on a michael done on. I don't know if the cut him necessarily but or even if it's a trade or something but he He like his made. His first started his career in the playoffs last year. When one of their lineman got kobe any didn't allow single pressure. So he's interesting in a couple of other guys that i think the giants would definitely look at the so. Let's turn to Let's turn to the other side of the ball. Let's turn to the giants defense. And and i know that that the giants gave up that sort of a hail mary touchdown you know and i think it was a a two minute drill How did you think that the giants defense held up overall any eleven. Eleven yesterday Yeah you know that. La- last two minute drill. I like two minute drill. Maybe an air quotes because the browns are like taking time in a. I'm pretty sure two minutes expired. I think baker mayfield had like eleven pass attempts and he only completed five of them but the problem was they kept giving up third down versions on the drive and the touchdown again. I'm not sure if it was would actually been a touchdown because you know trent hairs. Lorenzo carter looked like they might have sacked baker mayfield early pressure in the not throwing it. But you know anything. Kevin kevin's fancy said. Even almost blew the whistle on that. So i don't know if necessarily been touchdown but either way like even if the was act like they they should defended that better like the two minute events. Douse a problem. But otherwise. I think the defense played pretty well. The one issued ad was with jarvis. Landry which somme i wrote about this morning actually he He was dominating this the secondary. He's a very talented player. But i think it kind of emphasizes that for as good as secondaries. I think there are questions about how they're gonna be able to defend the slot. 'cause i'm i'm high darna homes. I think he showed some flash last year took his bums thing. He struggled a bidding camp. But that's that's definitely not like a guaranteed guy that you can necessarily rely on to stop guys landry so i think that's good i am but yeah i mean otherwise. No james bradberry shutting things down. I think there's a lot of pressure i think. Lorenzo carter look great. Thing was his first full practice in a while oceans. Simon is looking pretty good. Trend harris doesn't getting a lot of reps at the first team as easily Rem if you pressures. I'd say in terms of that stuff. I thought it went pretty well. It's interesting. I wanted to ask you about the slot because my thought with the giants in the slot is obviously darnay. Homes is option one. We haven't seen erin robinson at all since rookie mini camp I'm guessing at this point that he lands on the pup list to start the season or stays on the pup list. But the way i think about the giants in the slot is they have a lot of options. But do they have one really really good option. If you know if you agree with that yeah. I do i. He looking nefa robinson was healthier. Emmys iraqi and rookies murky corners especially a nickel like i. I think jerome henderson it. Well he called. He called like enough corner like the traffic cop. 'cause they're just like in the middle of the field there's so much going on around them and in it's tougher rookie to come in. And that's why teams are targeting darnell. I last year. So even if robinson was healthy what she's not. I don't know if you can call that. Like you can be confident in him. And there are other options. You know the Mckinney get some.

"Are we going to see you. Know some splash plays from from zizou jewelry. Are we going to see anything from carter coughlin. How much is lorenzo. Carter going to do. I mean he. He sat out friday's practice. Joe judge hinted that there is an injury of some sort. didn't tell us what what that entails. Any probably isn't going to tell us either. So we'll see if carter does much of anything see if carter coughlan ken. can impress. See what What i he. Oh denic bo brings to the table. It'd be interesting to see you know which edge rushers also another competition to to keep an eye on is of course the competition for backup wide receiver spots john. Ross dante pettis. Cj board austin mac. The newly acquired damian willis's in that competition now David sills kid who was really really impressive. A year ago. Who had a chance to talk to A few days ago Please make sure you check out the feature that i did on sills at biglou dot com. If you haven't done so already sills is also a guy in that competition and appears to be off to a good start in training camp so and again you know once we get to pads once we get to really competitive situations. That's when we start to get a look at players who are standing out players who are falling behind the sort of stock up stock down kind of things that we really haven't been able to do or look at thus far in camp. This week is also going to be interesting. Because in addition to matt pert. Who's back we should start to see the return of some of the injured guys. Some of the guys that have been on the coverted list could area's. Tony has been off the cova list for a few days. But we really haven't seen him on. The field would expect to see tony. The giants first round. Pick get some reps at least an individual drills early this week and get back on the field. Get into some team periods as the week goes along as he has the giants. Try to find a way to fit tony into into their twenty twenty one offense the young man for a variety of reasons between shoe issues and not being present at voluntary. Ota's as and and leaving practice early during minicamp. He's already missed a ton of reps early in the season. Tony needs to get on the field. He needs to stay on. the field. needs to get comfortable you as an nfl player. Get comfortable in this offense build a rapport with daniel jones so that he can become a useful part of the twenty twenty one giants offense. There are obviously gadget plays that the giants can run for tony. You know the quick screens. The jets sweeps all that kind of stuff but it would be nice if he could do more than that. In addition to You know part return kickoff return if the giants choose to use him there as well but it. It'll be nice to see tony back out on the field this week so so hopefully. Hopefully that happens and You know we get some of the other injured guys back soon as well. It would be nice to see ocean's immunised get out on the field fairly soon. Don't know if for when that might happen. don't know what might happen. Also in terms of some of the roster moves. we haven't heard yet You know the giants have added several players Looney being one willis being another veteran linebacker. Todd davis perhaps the addition of running. Back alfred morris coming as well we haven't necessarily heard what what corresponding moves. The giants are going to make. I would assume that we will hear most of those on You know throughout the day on monday and we'll keep you guys up to date the best we can going forward with with those moves as we will with with anything and everything to do with the giants and training camp also guys wanted to talk a little bit about About the giants offense. We know how bad the offense was a year ago. Thirty first in the league in points scored nowhere close to good enough to be a representative. Nfl caliber playoff team. We know how much emphasis the giants put on on upgrading. That offense kenny golladay. Kid area's tony kyle. Rudolph bringing in devante booker as a backup running back on adding john. Ross doing you know. Re revamping the offensive coaching staff especially around the offensive line. So a lot has been done in there was a lot of There was a lot of consternation. I guess is the right word on friday when the offense struggled against the defense in an eleven on eleven period. And listen you know. It wasn't great the balls on the ground too much daniel jones through a bad ball over the head of evan. Ingram that gut intercepted by logan ryan. He and of course it's okay god. He threw another interception toward anger. I'm here we go again with that nonsense which happened way too much last year but look the giants defense. The secondary is very very good. It's very talented. Most of those guys already have a rapport. Most of those guys have played together even newcomer. dorie jackson. You know has played a lot with logan ryan so he knows so so. There's some chemistry already there. The secondary is pretty well established. It's one of the best secondaries in the league. The giants are really just putting the pieces of this offense together. They're really just building the timing building chemistry in building the things necessary. You know to to run a competent quality passing attack and on friday. It didn't look great. You know obviously i was. There didn't look great. it looked sloppy. The as i said the ball was on the ground. Too much there weren't enough completions. The defense dominated the action on friday. But but i'm not gonna flip out about that. It was one practice. It was the first competitive practice of training camp. I really competitive eleven on eleven period and and and it didn't go great for the offense but it's you know it's so it's a starting point look at it that way We'll hope that things get better. Hopefully this week will see some signs of improvement but really the idea for me is to see a little bit of improvement. Some steady improvement in the timing. And how the offense you know in in the timing in the the chemistry with daniel jones in the wide receivers. I'm looking at those joint practices coming up against the browns and the patriots in a couple of week weeks and by then. I really want to see some progress. I don't wanna see the giants..

"I think that i'm an agreement with you. Guys with it's it's a close tie between oceans as a map. Parrot i think zimmer says is probably a step ahead of pair in terms of being impacted the most you hit the nail on the head neck they have almost put the writing on the wall for zimmerman. As and i guess you could say lorenzo carter as well that these guys that have been around for a few years drafted a few years ago. They need to step up. They spent the money they brought in the free agents. Not a ton of money. But they brought in from the outside to compete for those roles. And it's either saying you guys are gonna get diminish snaps or you're fighting for a roster spot right now is in a serious serious impact. Because he's not on the field. Other guys are getting the chance. To prove themselves over zimmer says right now in parrot. I think is very specific to what you were talking about. Chris and in the sense that if he's not on the field who's out there right tackle. Is it going to be nate soldier. Getting most of those wraps until his back. It's figured out. How is the back injury to a bit questioning because as an offensive lineman when you're moving massive dudes every single day and you're on your knees and you are falling all over the ground having a back injury as an offensive. Lineman is probably one of the worst things that you can deal with except maybe a knee injury so for him to be having that that might take a while to get onto the field. It might be something that nags him through training camp. This might be something where they tell him to take his time because they want him to start. And that's very similar in the along. The lines of as i was saying with kyle rudolph in a different light. That if he's not out getting the reps how prepared is going to be for the start of the season so i think both of those guys. It's it's pretty close for hurting them. The most for the start training camp. I want to bring up. Lorenzo carter's name just because we touch on. I feel like those. Two situations aren't similar though. Because lorenzo carter has anything twenty five years old but so it was shame but i feel lorenzo. Carter's potential is far superior to what i can offer you more of a situational type of pass which rental carter can set a firm edge. He can really stop a pulling guards. Backside guards you'll use a squeeze technique wrong arm technique if you teach them that way dent technique if you wanna teach that and just totally either spill outside box inside. He's a really smart run-defender he's very physical. He has shown flashes of like. I would say good flexibility specifically in the patriot game back in two thousand nineteen and he's always been a little bit raw with his pass rushing moves but if he can develop that i mean he has a lot more potential to me and i believe oceans minutes has and just to build off of that within this defense which asks all of its players to do so many different things to where so many different hats because patrick graham loves to and he loves four. Offense is to never be sure of of where the pressure is coming from. The rental carter is good in space. He can get out and he can run with running backs he can run tight ends. He has that length in just that rare athleticism for physician and he has a lot of experience as that. Swiss army knife defender where even if he never becomes the pass rusher. His athletic tools say he could be just his ability as long as you know that he's able to come all the way back from that achilles injury just he's such a well rounded athlete that he can do so much for this defense and his ability to affect the ron. I mean it really allows patrick graham to employ those mint type of nickel type fronts. It's the similar type of defense that we see georgia a lot which makes sense obviously is user. Laurie lorenzo carter but having that strong edge defender who could spill everything outside along with the type front. That's going to spill everything outside..

"Alright giants fans ed. Valentine back here on. Valentine's views podcast talking with patricia trainer. Giants country in the lock done giants podcast as we preview. You're twenty twenty one giants training camp which begins officially on tuesday. Patty we've been talking about offense. Let's talk a little bit about defense and really the one the one topic that i find really interesting. Entering training camp on defense is how the edge rusher situation is going to pan out. I think the giants have so. Many options are on the edge. Do you find that to be one of the most fascinating position groups entering camp. I do you know. There's an old saying you know quant. Quality is better than quantity. The giants have quantity but do they have quality. I think they do you know. I like z's larry i think he's gonna develop into a fine every down. You know edge. Rusher for them If lorenzo carter is fully healthy and it was a good sign that we saw him during the The spring he was on his way to becoming quite a force before that injury that he suffered. Now what about the rest of the gang there. What are they gonna get from. Ellison smith who was deaf. I believe they're fourth-rounder you know is ryan anderson. Done a play a role there What about o'shane zimmer. Says who seems to be the forgotten guy. What kind of role is he gonna play. And then you have some linebackers you know cam brown and carter coughlin. Did some some edge work last year. But you know. I think carter coughlin's going back towards the to being an inside linebacker more than at edge rusher is cam brown a situational guy so you have a bunch of guys there that you know the question is do. They have a guy who's going to be productive or tune. They really need a strong three man rotation i think at that position. I don't know that they have it yet. We have to see if they do but based on what they have on paper you can make the argument that they do but you know what they have on paper versus with they have on the field two very different things so definitely something to keep an eye on and you know the other thing on defense that i'm really interested in is how the how the secondary shakes out just in terms of how patrick graham uses all of the pieces that that they have have competition in the slot. You between darnay homes and rookie. Third round pick aaron robinson. Plus you have several other defensive backs capable of playing in the slot. You've got lots of competition for for backup spots in the defensive secondary. You've got xavier mckinney heading into his second year hopefully his first full season first healthy season. Is there any any position battle. Anything in this secondary that that really intrigues. You enter camp. Just how many different combinations can patrick graham. Come up with. i mean. This is kind of like a rubik's cube in a away except Instead of trying to solve get all the you know the colored squares to match on each side of the cube. There's so many different combinations that he can put together you know. Is he going to put a for. Example xavier mckinney in the slot on third downs whereas aaron robinson gonna fit in. Is he going to be the star linebacker. Is he gonna take over the slot. So there's a lot of questions but there's also a lot of different combinations that i think pacha gram. He's you know if i'm patrick graham. I'm probably sitting there. And i can't wait to run through some of these combinations and see what works what doesn't work and then figure out when i'm going to deploy them in certain game situations and there. There's a lot i mean. There's probably once that we probably haven't even thought of the patrick graham on his long list of you know personnel. Pack is probably has come up with a few new and creative ways to deploy those guys if we know grand patty. He'll he'll he'll come up with a few more of those tuesday morning. Sure he's probably know. Hey interesting things about the giants last season. Patty was that they struggled in some areas on special teams. Graham gano had a tremendous year as placekicker but the giants didn't get a whole lot from their return game canaries..

"So chris this is something that we were going back and forth on before we started recording. The show is who sticks around on the roster and before we get into that conversation. I think we need to just hit on these backup players. The last three that have been listed at edge rushing roles or coughlin who was a rookie. Last year played. Mostly special teams did get some opportunities to get on. The field. didn't look all that great nassim to do some stuff that i don't think he was very comfortable doing and there was a reason why we saw him struggle. But then there's also trent harris and then there's also garrett kale so these three guys separate from some of the other names that we mentioned are probably the love most likely to get cut maybe or coughlin lands himself onto the practice squad but they have the biggest uphill battle to make this roster. Yeah i would agree with that. I think the giants like car coughlin. He is a guy who he's got a really strong work ethic he's got a great motor. He's a better athlete than i think he gets credit for but like you said when he got on the field he struggled. Yeah i think he could be in a battle with cam brown for that back end of the roster primarily special teams role with a chance to work as we on the field and defense. But he's going to have to pick it up because brown in that area does have a head start on him. Trent hair scare kale. I think the guys to watch in training camp but like you said they've got an uphill battle we also do have to pay attention to the numbers game. You know. we've got three guys. We think are going to have a sizeable share of the snap. Count and then. We've got four guys. We have a strong presence as a rotation. do the giants keep seven edge players. Or is it just six. Could ellison smith not cam brown off the bat off the back end of the roster and they basically just keep five down defensive lineman and six ed rushers unfortunately when we when you get as many bodies at a position as the giants have right now. The numbers game starts to be a very real consideration and giants could wind up being forced to make difficult decision with a guy they would really rather keep on their roster that i think is going be the largest debate that will be having in regards to this defense. And who makes the roster. Because you can't really say like oh it. You know the it makes sense. They've got a deep group. They're gonna keep seven guys. Look at the secondary. The secondary is the most crowded group on the roster and they're going to need spaces extra spaces. I think more than most teams to keep a lot of these guys on the roster and there's going to be somebody that is going to be cut. I think from the edge rushers or the defensive line. That is a recognizable name that we would have hoped would have at least gotten maybe a season or two more before. They parted ways with the giants and the two guys that i look at the most. That might be in that conversation because realistically it's probably going to be six it might. There's even a possibility might be five. I don't think that's going to happen. But there are going to be some serious constraints on how many edge rushers they can keep in the to that. I think come into play the most four competing for a roster spot right now even though they weren't doing so really last year is kim brown and is o'shane shane's inez. Like right now. The two of them i think of the most approve because they brought in some veteran free agents. They're going to give some of those guys. I think a little bit more the benefit the doubt because they've actually gotten more reps in live games. They've been competitive for other teams and they were basically hand selected to step into roles that were unproductive last year. If you have to go out and get guys in free agency for your positions. That usually means that the coaching staff is looking for competition. And they weren't necessarily impressed with what you showed so far. So oceans jimenez cam brown. I think right now are probably the biggest guys that might be surprised in the end of training camp yet and i really do feel there will be at least one surprise. Cut out of this group. We could even flag lorenzo carter as a potential surprise cut in the giants loved to turn the back into their roster. I'm not saying. Carter is going to be back under the roster type guy but they could find somebody to play that will linebacker position and if carter's injury lingers if they're just not happy with his development you know they really feel he should be an edge rusher and he is just not there yet They could decide. Hey we we just don't have any more time to spend trying to develop you. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and we could see them maybe try to pounce on edge rusher that maybe a team like the browns or the forty niners teams with incredibly deep defenses. Cut i think that the edge group the linebacker group is probably going to be in the in the tightest constraints which you can consider some of these guys to be off ball linebacker slash slash edge rushers but considering the players they have along the defensive line and then most specifically the secondary is going to really force out some players because as we know this defense has been built around the secondary it is built around having quarterback stand there for extended periods of time until the defensive line in the edge. Rushers eventually get there. That is what has been the bread and butter. Maybe the approach alters slightly but it seems like the money and the effort that was spent in free agency there is going to be a huge emphasis still on the secondary. And we'll we'll talk about the safeties and the corners on separate shows and we'll probably talk about other surprise. Names that are recognizable players that are going to get cut from those groups but separate from that chris. I think with our backups. Here carter coffin. Trent harris gear kale are in a bit of a tight squeeze. We don't really know. A whole lot from trenton harrison garrett kale i think the more that's surprising but the more recognizable name is not going to make this for pretty much guarantee is carter coughlin. I just don't see a way that he squeaks into the roster unless they're obsessed with how he plays as a special teamer but it's just gonna be too tough for him considering all the guys ahead of him considering his limitations as an athlete and then we saw him struggle in various things last season when they asked him to get on the field and play more. Yeah he's going to have to make a pretty big jump in his play like just an incremental improvement. That'll be nice. But i don't think that's going to make enough to get him on the final fifty three man roster and yet. There's just one other thing i want to note. And that is the loss of rep. Yelma your i know. We're this is really a position group preview. But i think the giants losing their outside linebackers coach. He went back to coach at the college ranks. That's something i think. We were all expected expecting to see at some point but we did. Even though the giants pass rushers weren't a really impact group last year. we did see lorenzo. Carter take a step forward before he got hurt. We saw cuyler. Fakher will make some plays on. The giants didn't get a whole lot of out of marcus golden but when he was on the field last year he had an impact. And i'm just curious to see what another coaching change at that unit. Losing a guy who's very well regarded as a linebackers as a defensive coach. What effect that has no whether or not some of these young guys who were there last year maybe take a step backward without p. l. madera to coach them up some more. That's always going to be a big conversation point as well as there's been some rotations along this coaching staff. Who knows what we see. We see improvements. Do we see some set-backs that's going to be another thing as well where those relationships with some of the younger guys you have new face in there he's not really gonna go to bat for potentially guys that weren't around last season so we'll be tracking that as always we're going to be discussing and breaking down you.

"You could do worse than that. He's he kinda reminds me a lot of dave paulison from back in the day where he might be the first guy on the field but if he's out there you don't really worry. I think that assuming zimmer says is healthy that will be good enough to get him a roster spot now ellison smith. Everyone knows i really like him. He jumped off to feel to me at the senior bowl. I loved watching his tape. Just from a developmental standpoint. I think he's actually ahead of aziza jewelry. Just his technique is skill set as a pass rusher but he does have that jump to make from you know small school. Fcs didn't play last year. All the way up to the nfl whereas osirak are coming out of the sec where he had himself a big year last year is used to going up against guys like andrew. Thomas nfl caliber offensive linemen. And doing it down in down out so do think you're right. It's going to take a little bit to work. Ellison smith in but i think he could also wind up pushing for one of those high. Snap count roles once he gets going and i think the conversation with eller smith and what would really benefits him is that his build is very different than the other guys in the group. And you also can consider yourself. Is he going to be more of a down lineman rather than it edge rusher just because of how large he is and i feel as though in situations where they want a heavier front. They're probably going to call on ellison smith as long as he is shown the ability to go out there and compete with nfl guys. I don't see a reason. Why not again. He's physically developed enough to do so and he also spent a ton of time at you. And i going against spencer brown. Who's probably gonna get some playing time with the bills. And then also trevor pending. Who's going to be another. Nfl guy from northern iowa. Who's supposed to be drafted so You know if he's ready to go there probably gonna use him as like a heavy down guy in short yardage yardage situations maybe on some first downs. Where they're expecting a rushing play if they're just trying to get somebody who's more of a space eater who's going to take up some space on the edge. That they know is strong point of attack. Eller smith could provide that for them. I don't know if necessarily he'll get those third and long third and ten years back in go type roles that's probably going to be more anderson and opening bow and also osha lari instead. I think ellison might be a little bit in those situations where they just need a bigger body and one thing we do knows the giants really did not use a whole lot of four man. Front four down linemen like the four to five nickel now. That was pretty much the rest of the. Nfl's base defensive look. The giants didn't use that a whole lot. Part of that. I think was just due to the injuries. They had last year and really wear the strings of their defense. Were now. I think it's possible. We when they do use that front. We could see ellison smith. Lorenzo carter as those down. Defensive ends with Maybe bj hill end. Leonard williams as the interior defensive lineman. That could be a package. We see a fair amount next year. Just based on the body types available now the other thing too now that i think about it you could use ellison smith. This is the reason why. I believe we were all so excited. By this draft selection you could also use ellison smith in those those third down roles where you wanna go with just straight up all edge. Rushers and we. We saw that happen before. We've seen just have somebody lined lineup in the interior. Not even in a three point stance but in a standup stance and rush that way so they might go with a three man front and have ellison smith is the interior rusher or they might have him as just being additional interior guy. There's a lot of things that you can do with eller smith because of his size profile. So that's another possibility of how they could use them. Yeah absolutely his size is the thickness his length. And just how explosive he is. Yeah he had he had that really good ten yards split in that just great vertical leap of his. That is something you don't see all that often that is just a rare combination and there are like you said a bunch of ways. The giants can get him on the field and put that skill set to us. So coming up. We're going to talk about these backups. And then sharing who we believe won't make this roster in a very crowded edge rusher group before we get to though we are going to take a very short commercial break support for this episode comes.

"Was really like further value. Where they got him totally made sense exciting player but for the need and where they are with this offense. It's like did you really need another wide receiver. Especially because like i said this is like i literally like darius slayton i think sterling shepard good to. It's just getting rich richer and flashier where there were already rich and flashy. And i don't know about that approach. I also have questions about whether jason garrett is going to be the guy that solves this problem of. You've got a quarterback who's better throwing the ball deep than he is short intermediate weirdly and has turnover. And you've got weapons but you didn't improve the offensive line. It's just confusing. But like i said. I think the best possible case for this offense is that jones does improve in terms of his awareness and that there's improved continued improvement at the tackle position. And if both of those things happen that's a very big conditional if this could be really good offense because the weapons are really good and the running backs are good and you know. It's just those are like. I said pretty. Big ifs quarterback and offensive line are big question marks. Yep the other side though just to flip it. I think this is a giant defense. That had a very obvious need going into the draft and they addressed it. But i'm not sure if that's enough and that is at ed rush so the giants. I finished by the way they finished thirty second in. Pass block win rate which is probably not surprising. They also finished thirty second in pass rush win rate which is kind of surprising given how much the defense improved. But you know. Outside of leonard williams really not a lot of production. I guess occasionally Dexter lawrence pushing the pocket dom gone but the inside is fine. It's to outside that continues to be a question. Mark for the edge rather they draft disease jewelry And then they've got lorenzo. Carter coming back. Oh shut this isn't a are really struggled shimano. no john's shany's imminent Odhiambo courtney cronin. Vikings were communist anyways. A lot of question marks on the giants linebacker korea. Yes tino july who. I liked a lot i like. Oh july like how do you feel about the defensive the group overall upfront. I really like with giants on defenseman. I started watching the friend for this pond. Ninety that patrick graham was was. I knew that he was good coach. I knew he was respecting. People liked what he did. You start watching in terms of how they they like the steel gas so the defensive front they have a lot of guys you can do get daniel jones keys. Weirdly beating the washington. Football team wanted to go back and watch those games to understand. Why would i ended up being more impressed with washington always thinks they have the size to bully on the offensive line and the giants. Don't let him on because able to play lawrence. Bj hill Dalvin tomlinson leonard williams. All inside they do a great job stealing gaps which lets them drop seven drop eight coverage they really good zone coverage top down. Is he going to throw deep on us. We're gonna come up rally tackle. Which is very interesting. Because graham came from new england new england sharply man under bill. Belichick mostly in. He really really wants to be able to sit in zone. B with numbers But when you look at what. Got people excited about that. Brandon staley defense in terms of using type fronts bear fronts which more so with the giants due to steal into tear gas into get numbers in the passing game patrick grams up that alley on internet. That work is very exciting now. Would they lacked that. The rams had last year was the lennar ford guy. If you're gonna play with three down line between the tackles and that type front that bear front you need a guys outside linebackers a stand up wide rusher. He needs to win one on one. That is critical denisova. They're hoping to get that from z's and i'm not sold that that will be the case immediately he's got a nice profile isn't outside russia's got versatility. He can drop but right. Now he's kind of a one trick pony in terms of ee when the outside with the speed dip that shoulder or income three with speed power. That's pretty much it on. He's got to learn how to work his hands better. He's got that swat rip of besides that little bit one dimensional and so if you can get six point five. Kevin jackson Guess leonard williams is going to continue to generate some really good interior russia they're a decent blitz team About middle of the pack and they were successful doing that Get cuyler falco coming from debt. That work for them last year over. This team largely wants to stop you with a run. Be able to get you in third and long Top-down rally in tackle. They're not too much worried about that outside rush but it absolutely that in corner to with adoree jackson of the two spots they improve their ballgame. This is a really good defense. Yeah it's kind of like to me. Is this a good defense. Or is it a great defense. And that's gonna come down to whether they can manufacturer pass rush outside of letter williams to your point because the secondary is potentially so good the front seven like the pass rush doesn't have to be extraordinary at all. In fact you know the secondary. I talked about him a couple of weeks ago. With gregg rosenthal everything stock up stock down. And i talked about the giant secondary. Just how stacked they are right and you already had roe. Peppers logan ryan david mckinney. Three safety coming back from injury. And then of course james bradberry who is spectacular. Last season spectacular. That might be a little no spectacular. I want you and general. They had to protect their other corners. I think last year but then this year it was Yatim and this year. They went out in signed adoree jackson who was hurt last year but with him coming back suddenly. Oh my god like there's so. And then the grafted aaron robinson there so stacked and they have so much death at defensive back that if anything they could actually go back and play a little bit more man if they wanted so last season when is lose it to like how much zone they play to keep everything in front of them. That's something that kinda changed as the season went along the way that they use bradberry in particular Did you watch the seahawks game by any chance when you're all yeah no kidding. Living like how how literally got paid. Yes so i think you see us. This season went on graham. Who's a defensive coordinator kind of figuring out okay. These are the players i have. Let me play to their strengths. And like you said just kinda have them get rally football and play a ton of i think probably amongst the most zone in the nfl by the end of it. But it'll be interesting to me and just really be really stout against the run as well. And it'll be interesting to see if that evolves the personnel. They have but this is a good group and to go back to kind of early discussion. Like how these different teams shakeout like this defense. I don't think they have the. I think i think washington which will talk about is the best defense but this could be a top ten unit. No question in the nfl claiming that way as the season went along right exactly. I think that right. We've talked about graham figuring out who he has. In what pitches he can throw is important because they got a lot better generating pressure with games in the season. A lot of the had to do with only moving. Leonard williams around but not not treating leonard like a donald where every single game is meant to open. Aaron donald. like that's who you want winning on but using him as a crasher using him to blow on double teams Vanity bless against seattle where they had a they ran a game and all three of seattle's interior offense alignment the same dude. A linebacker just came flying down the pipe at ross. No lanier chilling bone chilling limb. Earn your yeah. I was just gonna say they had them lined up like every position versus seattle. I mean like at one from wide nine but all the way inside. I think he sacked russell from every possible tech. Who you start you start to learn your start to learn your pages limiter you got into that and to that. Pass rush point. What adoree allows you to do. Right is okay if we need to be able to play. Man coverage adore ejaz nautilus trustworthy player on a snapshot basis. But if we line them up against we feel solid. We feel good about it. It gives them the ability to press which win eight tried to press last year..

"The skill position. The defense also improved over the final six games last year and the giants are hoping that that's going to be a good indication of what's coming up here in two thousand and twenty one. Although to be fair in the second half last year the giants played a lot of games against nfc east opponents. Who mostly stink but over the last eight games. They held opponents to twenty points or fewer six times of those eight games. The giants signed adoree jackson. Cornerback to go along with james bradberry so that should give new york some some talent there on the outside second round pick oj. Larry could be sneaky quality. Grab at linebacker for them to and their three four defense and along the defensive line they brought back leonard williams a key part of their defensive attack along with linebacker blake. Martinez lorenzo carter. They're both back for another season outside. Linebacker oshane similar is going to be back so you know. Joe judge wants blood. There's no doubt about the fact the giants want some of the giants. Want the eagles blood. And i think at the moment. The giants are the more talented team. I think the giants are more talented team. After an eight game losing streak against the eagles and a recent stretch where they lost twelve out of thirteen. The giants finally beat the birds. Last november twenty. Seven to seventeen. And i think are ready to swing momentum in this long running rivalry back to their side at least for one more season at least for one more season. I think the giants have done a really good job. This off season of going out and improving their club making themselves better. And i think right now. They are more talented team than the philadelphia eagles. But for how long that that remains to be the case we'll see how quickly the eagles are able to bounce back. And rebound after what. We hope will be just one season where they're not playing so hot so that is they look at the eagles next four opponents. That's our breakdown of the la chargers. That's our breakdown of the denver broncos of the new orleans saints and the new york giants and next week. We're going to talk about a lot of nfc east opponents and We will have that for you next week on i on the enemy. We'll give you a breakdown on the dallas cowboys and washington football team. I already talked about them. We'll also talk a little new york jets. Everybody loves a little new york jets conversation and we'll dive into some some more eagles talk as well to hopefully you know we're in the dead spot here in the in the offseason so not a lot going on with the birds but Next week hopefully. We'll have some some more news coming your way that we can that we can do about here on eye on the enemy. Thanks everybody for tuning in. We will talk to you next time here on. I only end..

"To think you're right about that. Steve hey if you know. Obviously everybody's got their fingers crossed. You hope that things go. Well you hope that that daniel jones steps up it. You're absolutely right. I think that so much of how the giants season goes. It is in the hands of daniel jones but in in your mind thinking ahead. What happens if it doesn't go well. What happens if he doesn't make that step. What happens if the giants are six or seven win. Team are are the giants not only looking for another quarterback maybe another offensive coordinator. They also looking for a new gm at that point to absolutely. Yeah i believe they are. I believe this is a critical year for dave gettleman as well because he could is legacy on the line with daniel generals now. I didn't agree with the pig. At number six i was. I was couvert along when he was a rookie But versus the guy and this is the guy that everybody in the organization believes on but if daniel jones isn't the guy than i think you're gonna see their annual luck. David gilman ahead out to cape cod. He'll they'll steph down pedestrian negative I i don't think that's going to happen. I think daniel jones is going to restore fate in the quarterback position with the new york giants. I i love. I think daniel jones what it takes and i just i if if he feels shame on him because he's got all the weapons you need and and say return is just huge. But they've got to be right about the office of wide left the cake. That'd be right about the office of why and they believe they would. You know we'll see about that Remember also the defense with patrick graham. Keep the game close for daniel jones dewitt so daniel jones has to be at his best in the fourth. The way you. I manning always was over two years and i'm looking for a breakout year. I was looking for last year from lorenzo carter. What are you thinking.

"Sometimes it was great I don't know how the dog came out of all of that and but I don't know that anyone does I think it might have been a miracle but it I'm happy I'm very happy the dog like it's fine let's go to Tom in the Bronx what's up Tom again I don't think they can call you got it so I want to talk a couple things giants I know we had art on the previous hour so apologize if I'm a little late I know you spent a lot of time covering the giants yeah I actually just anecdotally had been in certain media rooms with you when I was a student at Fordham University W. fan okay shot WTV I got here and I see a couple other college kids they said anyway giants defensive back field this year has it as one key piece that I'm just so sure right now what they plan on doing with them and that's truly in love and the reason I say that is because do you like nowadays we accept that NFL defenses really have five defensive backs on the field most of the time getting five percent of the time about you really need to count five defensive backs starters and I do feel like the giants have about four of those where is the Andre Baker Bradbury the new free agent signing two bell peppers and Julian love yeah my question about Julie loves what position does he play do they view him as a free safety or did they view as a slot corner because I think whichever one day decide to put him in leaves a pretty solid sized hole at the other position so let's say they say we really liked you in love as a slot cornerback I think a big underrated position and need for the giants is this centerfield consecutive session yeah I wonder if if love is not a fit there I'm off the top of my head I'd probably think he's a fit safety because because of what you just said although that like you said the nickel is basically a starter in most defenses if not all defenses anyway so he can certainly be useful he'll be on the field I did think that he showed a high football aptitude last year I thought that he was impressive and I think the Julian love of that group you know sort of those those later draft picks might end up being the best of the group defensively so I can see that I did Joe judge the one thing Joe judge said that I that I really like to this press conference and there were there was more than one thing but when he said don't tell me what a player can't do tell me what he can do and I I do think that Julian love fits in that secondary certainly fits in that secondary and I think you'll see a lot more of them this year definitely definitely I'm just I'll be super excited to see where they plant because I think your bell peppers a great take you down by the line and I think that someone back in the center field as they say your comment about judge judge actually we're obviously out if you don't mind just one more point about trust Tom I think Lorenzo Carter is someone that they need to kind of take that Joe judge mentality and see what he can do details but I think we might have a few steps forward as a professional also we'll definitely I think I just you know I'm willing to be patient and I remain optimistic as a giants fan but Amanda Carter in two years he just he certainly has not shown that he can be our guy off the edge well I would agree so for that reason I'm really helping them as commander big year I think Jimenez and fakrul the likely starters and even with those guys I still think they're missing sort of an alpha dog at that age position and I'm not sure markets gold if even Alfa dog despite its contracts so well I'm not sure that that's something the giants figure out until maybe unfortunate couple years down the road well until my thank you very much for the call first of all I don't care if he's now for dog or not if he's producing like Markus golden did last year and I do think he probably kind of fit that mold little bit and he's got a one year deal but he certainly was productive I am curious and we only have thirteen minutes left in the program so it's probably not for tonight I am curious how patient the giants fan is willing to continue to be I do think both local teams have asked for patience essentially and have been given patients to some degree and I am curious with the giants fan how patient he and he or she is willing to be at this point the giants need some results they need to get after the passer they need to find someone to do it people like Lorenzo Carter he's a year younger but I would include the Andre Baker need to be professional football players and to kind of embrace everything that goes into that and they need some help from the coaching staff and they very well might get help help from this coaching staff and that would be a positive that would absolutely be a positive let's go to Clark in Babylon I'm not I'm not the last but among my last callers tonight was a clerk Clark may or may not be there and Clark is not there let's go to Paul in middle village hello Paul hi Kim I don't know if they gave you this information just so you don't think I'm getting discombobulated but I'm blind so.

"On giant dot com I literally had to set up like for a mod studio to different locations to make it happen but we're doing the best we can in difficult times yeah and you know hope everybody staying safe it is very difficult while all learning together how to adjust here but I want to have your own small get some insight into these giants players I'm not really that familiar with Patrick Graham the defensive coordinator is and that's a good thing let's start with the linebackers give me some scouting reports you watch the tape at a bike Martinez in collar back role I I watched a bunch of fracked wells the pass rushing from a couple years ago in two thousand eighteen that was the best year of his career actually tend to have to act and that was when the pastor Graham was in Green Bay within as the run game coordinator linebackers coach he played bold right outside linebacker left outside linebacker you know we played that kind of stand up you know hybrid three four outside linebacker pass rusher role they look pretty good he showed inside spin move the show to speed off the edge hello I have not had a chance to look at the two thousand nineteen tape to see why that why he had not is nearly as much production last year the end of twenty eighteen only town to pass rusher Frank we remind you that type of move sal that they may with Markus golden heading into last year when they found the guy that was productive a couple years past with the coordinator they had on the staff there was getting is better now after Graham and they'll try to recreate that production with them on the giants roster archer Blake Martinez I watched some of the stuff from twenty eighteen when pastor Graham was in Green Bay and coaching him there he's actually pretty effective blister that year believe it or not he's good around the line of scrimmage in the inside box in the run game I'm still want to look at some more coverage tape I think he's fairly decent in that short zone did not see a lot of them trying to cover running backs and tight ends in space I want to see more of that a lot of people that have watching what they eat not great doing that in spades I need to see more of it but the giants will be needed guys at linebacker they simply did not have the numbers on the roster and you're winning goal cream on an elbow will treat Ryan Connolly coming back from an ACL so they needed numbers and those guys will certainly help in that department and how about the cornerback James Bradberry they looks like they get a good one year they desperately needed that look you mentioned I mean the judges the a players on defense aid to many young guys last year no death whatsoever they they needed players on defense they do that with adding a couple linebackers and they get one of the top corners in James Bradberry yeah and I thought quarterback was interesting because there's so many young guys sound actually probably maybe the deepest position on the roster but is the quality that you know what I mean the young guys didn't necessarily prove that they deserve to be handed starting roles I think there has to be competition this year and that's why they bring in or Lisa reported that they've agreed to a contract with bribery none of these contracts by the way right they can't be until Wednesday at four then they gotta do physicals they're opening a visible to all that has to be a good thing we need to come final sort interrupt you smoke how they doing physicals how long to wait for that to take place that's a really good question I think NFL teams are still figuring it out there's a private jet scenario organizing get going around like that I think you will probably try to avoid it there's also a situation where they can make a deal with like a local hospital near where the player is located to run whatever imaging in passing the one instead then those results I think this is a process that genes are still figuring out they can become official as early as four PM on Wednesday when those physicals here take place well it's really a good question which is why I'm on the website and I got to make clear that you know all the stuff is pending physical they can't be official until later on right now it's just according to reports the giants you don't have really confirmed anything but if it does come to pass you know Bradbury the guy that is a big physical corners six twenty two fifteen I think he did his best work when he was in press coverage last year I was interesting I watch a lot of him on Monday and I was trying to avoid my caller from injuring herself with a twelve hours a day which is held by the way I will never complain about the cost be character again but Bradbury is somebody who did well in France a special again some of the bigger receivers in Julio Jones deandre Hopkins Michael Thomas will be bike I didn't and I thought he was best when he kinda with physical those guys in the line of scrimmage and when he was cutting off cover your little to come down on the ball I'm not sure he's the quickest guy side to side which is why he's more of an outside cornerback minutes walk cornerback but as a dependable physical bigger outside corner that's not afraid to hit I think will be a real nice veteran stabilizing presence to that giant secondary which they desperately need to talk with John smog reporter podcast host for giants dot com we'll stick with the defense your thoughts on letter Williams I mean I think kind of a war in a rock and a hard place and you know they had a franchise a winner Williams in hopes of not losing them because they gave up draft equity did draft capital to get him I didn't SO in love that move give me your thoughts on whether Williams they're moving what you think of him as a player overall hello if you look at some of the contracted and billed out to some of these tasks are to me but Dupri said one year in the NFL and you got franchise tag Cristiano on the fifth and passed a player he got tag but I mean look at the contract Robert Quinn just got had even the country style you know about big Beasley he's that good contract that could be worth up to twelve billion dollars that he has incentives just one year so it's not I mean it's kind of an incentive deal you said for one year it's not that big of a risk but yeah right but it but it's it's it's still a large yearly amount I think it's fair to say Leonard Williams is a better player than big Beasley cell has a one year invest in with the chance to negotiate a longer term deal I think it makes sense given what the market for these other pass rushers is this year now Williams is the same is the same type of thing that we talked about when he was with the jets right he's really good against the run he gets pressure on the quarterback of the middle he's disruptive he gets quarterback if you get sorry he just hasn't been able to get home with Saxo is that going to change we'll see there's no doubt about it that you think good NFL player and we'll see if the giants able to come to a long term deal with them now that they have this window with the franchise tag till July fifteenth I don't know that might get back up to consider everything that's going on hi good talk to Jon smog remains a reporter in Prague as always for John dot com how does this defense then shape up to you I mean obviously the draft we get into that in a minute but right now you think that these additions these guys gonna be starters are gonna be body's gonna plug in there and the giants defense outside of the draft now you think that the pretty much set via free agency right Americans to make him anymore moves on at the fence or anything mortgage golden I will I'm not sure how much how much interest there is in bringing him back but I suppose that's still a possibility they want to enter the pass rusher in some way shape or form that wouldn't surprise me in terms of a guy that can come off the edge right now all they pretty much have is up back row Lorenzo Carter no she didn't I don't have enough even on the roster so they want to add another pass rusher I think that's very much the possibility I think they help themselves inside linebacker and cornerback and yeah I think we drafted is is a real option to sell I think the defense is going to be better Blake Martinez Bradbury those guys are going to start for sure you'll pay bring kind of a veteran stabilizing presence to a defense and a backpack your grandchild had defensive coordinator doing some of the position coach they brought on defense will help a bit especially grown Henderson the secondary where I think that will help a young group back there it would be on to bigger to get better we look at as deep as I've been saying this on I'm not big wheel Cablevision our daily college on giant dot com where you know all these additions are great where this giant defense run the team in general going to get better is the big guys being trapped in the last couple of years improving is Lorenzo Carter going to take a step is Deonte Baker going to get better in year two can those intimate as improve to be a better pass rusher in dexter Lawrence become a better interior guy he's good working here can take effect that would be applicable that's where this team's going to get better the guys that are already on the roster in the draft and young those guys have to get better that's where the big jumps gonna happen here yeah and that's the key we know you got to build through the draft and couple things melt before we get to the draft you mention it was the defensive coordinator Patrick Graham how much of their all of his important here is Gettleman taking into account is this Jo Jo Jing Graham getting in their players or this development bringing in guys that he would want anyway because it seems like the fact the Graham coach these guys in Green Bay we have a lot more to do with it than just gentleman trying to sign some linebackers I think this is very much a collaborative process so I think I'm sure the coaches came with guys that they like it the gentleman in his personnel people came of god that they like we saw with the wood you could take kind of see where there's no matching interest and I live this way if the coaches Canadian government that we want this guy did Gelman washing the body was terrible I doubt the giants would bring him in like why the government brought it out of the cultures I love this guy the coaches said what we don't want this guy beat again want to go out there and find themselves it is very much a collaborative process with both groups working together to try to bring in guys that both sides think it helped the team dogwood John smoke reporter and podcast older giants dot com Levine Toilolo I know it goes under the radar I'm familiar with him because he was a falcon he's a good tight end he could block you could put him in
