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.

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
