Yardbarker: New York Giants

New York Giants near rock bottom in ESPN power rankings

We’re not far into the 2020 season, but the New York Giants already have comparisons to previous seasons. That’s because the team has started 0-3, and after their most recent loss, Dave Gettleman is once again on the hot seat.

Yardbarker: New York Giants

Offensive line motivated to improve against Rams in Week Three

The New York Giants have been arguably the weakest unit on the team through its disappointing 0-3 start. After investing a fair amount of assets into the offensive line this offseason and acquiring one of the best positional coaches in the sport to guide them, the Giants’ offensive line appears to have somehow gotten worse in 2020.

We tasked Nick Falato with trying — here’s what he came up with

2020 New York football is about as dismal as it gets. Both the Giants and the Jets are 0-3, and hope seems to be lost for both franchises. It’s a true shame; Jet fans are chanting Tank for Trevor Lawrence, and fire Adam Gase. Giants’ fans are calling for the head of Dave Gettleman, and hope to see some fire from this Joe Judge squad.

Bleak is one way to describe the two...

Here are some of the takeaways from Tuesday’s media availability of New York Giants position coaches.

“Good first outing” for Devonta Freeman

That is the assessment of running backs coach Burton Burns.

“We planned on just kind of easing him in. He’s still learning the system. We got him 15 snaps and I thought he did well, did what he was supposed to do as far as his...

With Aaron Donald up next, the offensive line play certainly needs to

For the second straight Tuesday, the New York Giants held what I have quickly come to call ‘Zoom-Mania.’ That is nine Zoom sessions with position coaches on three separate links over a 45-minute span. It’s crazy. And offensive line coach Marc Colombo is the unquestioned star of the show.

Colombo coaches a group that has struggled mightily, last in the league in...

Saving Daniel Jones — Can the Giants do that without Saquon Barkley?

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Putting the quarterback in position to succeed

This was supposed to be the fall of Daniel Jones’ development.

Granted, there existed concerns about how the young passer would acclimate to a new offense - his third in three years - given everything that 2020 has put on our collective plates. Those concerns were exacerbated when the New York Giants lost Saquon Barkley for the season with a knee injury in just the second game of the year.

That’s the...

Tuesday morning it was announced that the Tennessee Titans are suffering an outbreak of COVID-19. It was announced that several players and staff members have tested positive for the disease following Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

What does Daniel Jones need to be a successful quarterback in the NFL?

If you’ve watched the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints operate offensively, you’ve seen what quality looks like in the NFL. The New York Giants are far and away from being capable of that type of success, but that doesn’t mean that they are void of the talent to do so.

The Chris and Joe Show - Diving into the Giants’ failure against San Francisco

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

What went wrong for the Giants in week 3?

Every week after a New York Giants game, the Chris and Joe Show takes the next day to dive into the game tape. We offer our immediate reactions in the wake of the game, but it’s always good to confirm if we really saw what we thought we saw, or why we saw what we saw. That sort of thing can only come from rewatching the tape — after all, NFL games are always chaotic and we can miss key elements in the...

Even at 0-3, the optimist’s point of view would be that the New York Giants are only one win out of first place in the pitiful NFC East. New York Giants coach Joe Judge isn’t worried about the silver lining of the division’s standings.

A look at some of the grades from Sunday

I always remind readers that Pro Football Focus grades are not gospel. They are not the be-all or end-all of who played well, who did not and who is or is not a good NFL player. they are, though, a discussion tool that gives us a pretty good indication of performance.

So, let’s look at some of the New York Giants PFF grades from Sunday’s 36-9 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
