The Dallas Cowboys (7-3) head back to work after completing their bye week. The New York Giants (3-7) begin the process of playing out the string, but they do get a player back from the injury list this week.
For the first time this season, the New York Giants seemingly will make changes on their struggling offensive line. Coach Tom Coughlin just isn’t letting everyone know where.
Coming off a bye, the Giants’ line has watched the video of the Steelers’ performance against what had been one of the NFL’s top defenses.
After playing its worst game of the season, the New York Giants offense line has something to prove against the Dallas Cowboys.
A total collapse would have been tough enough for the Giants to swallow. But to do so against a division rival, and lose WR Victor Cruz for the season with a torn patellar tendon on top of it?
The only full day of practice will be on Tuesday, and coach Tom Coughlin said nothing will be done at full speed with Washington on tap Thursday.
Since Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee retired at the start of training camp and high-priced free agent Geoff Schwartz was injured in a preseason game, there have been giant concerns about the New York’s offensive line.
With two weeks to go until the season opener at Detroit on Sept. 8, the unit is undergoing a major change in the wake of guard Geoff Schwartz’s foot injury.
Justin Pugh was drafted by the Giants in the 2013 NFL Draft with their 19th pick. Today he stopped by the Allstate Studio to sit with Boomer and Craig and talk about how his life has changed.
The New York Giants missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, compiling a 7-9 record in 2013. It was only the second losing record under the leadership of Tom Coughlin as Giants head coach, who took command of the team in 2004. As the franchise’s leadership met the media after the final game of the season, one question was seemingly answered, while several other questions remained unanswered.
One more game. One more time. One more opportunity for the approximately two dozen free agents on the Giants’ roster to put their work on tape.
Jim Schwartz started the season on the hot seat and it might be scalding after another collapse. Losing four of five has likely hurt his job security.
The ugly bullying case down in Miami was discussed, as Pugh assured us he has never experienced anything like that.
Veteran lineman David Diehl will be starting at right guard for the Giants (0-4) on Sunday when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles (1-3).
How much wiggle room do the Giants have? Not much when you are 0-3, but at least the NFC East does not appear to be nearly as strong as it was expected to be.
