Giants fan agree with healthy star sitting out All Pre-season

Recommended Posts

Giants fans have no problem with this at all >>>>> (NY Post newspaper ) headline "The Saquon Barkley mistake Giants can’t make" Excerpt from artilcle>>>>>> (Barkley is 100% heathy ) 

"Barkley is the straw that stirs the Giants’ drink.

The risk-reward isn’t worth taking him out of bubble wrap.

Better safe than sorry.

Keep him in mothballs." ………………. I can see that point of view and it DECREASES my concern about whether Andrew plays in Pre-season or not .

NO ONE is concerned about Luck playing in any of these preseason games, the reps that he's missing by not practicing are far more significant.

I get it, but RB cant be compared to QB in  this case.

QBs need the timing with OL, WRs, and RBs. They also need practice "controlling" the offense.  RBs can turn the switch more easily.

Maybe send him out there WITH the bubble wrap?

Put him in one of those blow-up Sumo-wrestler suits.

@HOF19 I am totally with you. I truly believe that if we were at week 1 right now #12 would be playing. I think the Colts are being really smart with him.

If they feel he needs it we may all be shocked to see him play a half in the next 2 weeks  but I think they would do that  only if they feel he really really needs it .

I'm ok with sitting anyone in the preseason.  Reich should know where Luck is at.

Cains 1st catch of the night even freaked me out.  He came down in an odd way.

Slightest difference between an RB and QB in regards to reps.

Freaked me out too, but Cain needs to work through that stuff to trust his body coming back from injury.

I think that's why he is getting so many reps.

I loved that they increased his snap share (from 38% to 46%) vs the Browns. I think I'm more happy he played early.

 

Assuming the trend continues, I think we'll see a heavy rotation of Xs. I also think we'll see both Xs (Cain from the X, Funch from the slot) on the field at the same time. I love the flexibility of the WR group this year.

Can't wait for Campbell to get back on the field.  :woah: Speed Kills!

Me too. So bummed he's been out for so long.

 

The first time they go 4 vert with Cain, Campbell, TY, and Hines, I'm going to lose my sheet.

    • Glad what we’ve been seeing for years is finally being brought to the forefront, especially since not all QBs benefited from the special treatment. Luck used to get constantly  murdered back there and barely ever got the officials “protection.”   Brady said too many flags...  
    • I expect  Brissett  to be much better eventually.  Luck was brought  along just as slow the beginning  of last year and every one was like where are the deep balls? Eventually  Cain, Campbell,  or Roger's will get more involved  with offense.   
    • To me, we would know his progression, not ceiling. I’ll bet the playbook is still not fully installed yet, nor fully grasped by all of the player.  Some are further along than others as well.  I believe we can thank the CBA (with its very much reduced coach/player/team activities in the off season) at least in part for the less than stellar offensive creativity and brilliance in execution.   JB is a Works In Progress. I don’t feel that 4 weeks will determine his final destination. Unless, he really isn’t going to be more than average.  I’m watching the full year.  That should be a good indicator for what the team should plan to do next off season/training camp,
    • For a second, based on the link title, I thought that someone pulled an Aaron Hernandez.
    • Yep.   And nothing you’re going to type will move me from that position.   I appreciate what he did when was here. But that appreciation is only for what he did prior to his little show this year.
