    9/21: Giants need big plays from Odell Beckham Odell Beckham Jr. has 15 receptions

    Giants news Cheap Authentic Patrick Omameh Jersey Super Bowl LI 51 Nike NFL New York Giants Limited Game Shop , after two games. That puts him on pace for a career-high 120 receptions. Which sounds nice until you realize his longest reception has been 24 yards and his 10.8 yards per catch average is 3.2 yards per catch below his career average of 14.0 yards per catch.The deep ball has been missing from the Giants’ offense. Eli Manning has completed 56 passes, but only one of them -- a 37-yarder to Cody Latimer last Sunday night in Dallas -- gained more than 25 yards.“It just hasn’t happened,” Beckham said today of the deep balls. “We had some shots, but we just didn’t connect on them. It’s all happening so fast, these first two games. Get the jitters out of the way, and get the season going.“It’s easier said than done. Like Coach said, you don’t just want to throw them into coverage and stuff like that, but just finding ways to get the ball into the hands of the playmakers and allow us to make plays and keep the ball moving, keep this offense going in the right direction.”“I think we need to get the ball in the hands of the playmakers the right way,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “The first game, Odell touched it a bunch (15 targets, plus a rushing attempt). Last game, Saquon (Barkley) touched it 25 times. Really, it doesn’t matter if we’re running it or throwing it to him, he touched the ball 25 times. We’ve got to do a better job in all areas so there’s a little bit more space, I get that, but it’s certainly important to get the ball to your playmakers and we will continue to do that the best we can.”“We want to obviously get him (Beckham) involved,” offensive coordinator Mike Shula said. “He’s such a productive player for us and get him involved early, so I think it’s just – the easiest thing to say is yeah we got to game plan that, but he and Eli, they have such a good feel for the game. Just continue to utilize, not just their talents, but their awareness and their intelligence to be able to get him the football, whether or not it’s short passes, inside passes, outside passes, all that kind of stuff.”Why the Giants added WR Stacy ColeyShurmur coached Coley, added via waivers on Wednesday Aldrick Rosas Jersey , in Minnesota last season.“He’s got good speed, contributes on special teams and he’s caught punts before, kicks,” Shurmur said. “He has that ability and he was a young, developmental receiver when I had him a year ago. But he’s a good player and we’re fortunate he was available. We just felt like it would be a good guy to add to the mix.”Janoris Jenkins: Giants “way better” than they have shownCornerback Janoris Jenkins remains optimistic despite the Giants’ 0-2 start.“One game at a time. We understand what we’re in, what we got ourselves in, and we feel like we’re way better than that, so we’re just going to come out and play football, and have fun.”Around the Inter-GoogleGiants: Eli Manning not rolling over despite 0-2 startEli Manning has overcome plenty of adversity, and he is ready to do so again for the Giants against the Texans.PFF's NFL QB Rankings – after Week 2 | NFL Analysis | Pro Football FocusEditor Cam Mellor takes a closer look at how the NFL's starting 32 quarterbacks have fared through two weeks of play, ahead of the Thursday Night Football game between the Jets and Browns.It doesn’t get any easier now for Giants’ embattled offensive lineIt’s going to go one of two ways for the Giants offensive line Sunday in Houston — and only one of those ways is acceptable.The Giants’ 2018 season,...Jets, Giants need their youth to rescue potentially dismal seasonThe threat of another ugly New York football season is upon us.“Not easy, not easy,” WFAN host and former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason said before this...Leonard: Plain and simple, Giants need to figure out way to get Odell Beckham Jr. the ball more often - NY Daily NewsThe Giants didn't pay Odell Beckham Jr. to be a decoy. On Sunday, with a beleaguered head coach and a chance to rescue a season about to go off the rails against a bad Buffalo Bills team using its fourth starting quarterback, the New York Jets embarrassed themselves. They were never competitive, never seemed remotely interested in doing more than getting the game over with, and lost an astoundingly lopsided 41-10 game.On Monday night, at 1-7 and with any chance of playing games that had meaning for the 2018 season having vanished long ago, the New York Giants could have simply gone through the motions. They could have just crumpled and figured this was another lost cause in a lost year, especially when the San Francisco 49ers went ahead 20-10 midway through the third quarter.That, however, isn’t what happened. Led by an imperfect and beleaguered in his own right 37-year-old quarterback fighting to maintain his job and his dignity in the midst of a second straight disastrous season, the Giants fought back. They overcame that 10-point deficit. They got a game-winning drive from Eli Manning, albeit one helped by a pair of San Francisco penalties. They hung on with the 49ers reaching the Giants’ 21-yard line before Nick Mullens’ game-ending pass sailed out of the back of the end zone.They won a game, beating the 49ers 27-23 on Monday Night Football.“We made progress tonight Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey ,” head coach Pat Shurmur said. “As we go along here we’re going to have more victories. They’re going to always be hard fought. This team fights hard.”The Giants made progress. Isn’t that the point? Isn’t that what’s important? They entered the game having won only four times in their last 24 outings.For starters, they won. Sorry to disagree with those who were hoping the Giants would lose out, go 1-15, and get the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. They still might get that No. 1 pick, but the view here is there is never anything wrong with winning. You remember this, right?The Giants won the game because they did many of the things they were unable to do throughout the first eight games.They protected Manning as he was sacked only once. Progress.The quarterback responded by going 19-of-31 and throwing three touchdowns. He climbed the pocket beautifully on a 10-yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr. in the first half. He underthrew a deep shot to Beckham in the fourth quarter, but given a chance by the line he kept taking his shots. Progress. The Giants created a couple of turnovers, with linebacker B.J. Goodson snagging a pair of deflected passes. Progress.They got an excellent game from rookie linebacker Lorenzo Carter, probably his best as a pro. Progress.They may have found a couple of useful players. Corey Coleman had a 51-yard kickoff return and a key third down catch for a first down. Guard Jamon Brown wasn’t perfect, but he threw a critical block on Manning’s first touchdown pass and his play offered reason for optimism. Progress.The Giants, 31st in the league in the red zone, got touchdowns on two of their four trips inside San Francisco’s 20-yard line. They got field goals on the other trips, so they ended up with points on all four occasions. They did miss an opportunity when they chose to run on third-and-goal from the 3-yard line despite Beckham appearing to be uncovered. Not perfect, but progress.Shurmur’s play-calling showed progress. More use of fullback Elijhaa Penny, including two pass receptions. A season- and career-high 20 carries for Saquon Barkley, many probing the edges. Some vertical passing in the second half that included using Barkley and tight end Evan Engram down the field. Something that can’t be overlooked is that the Giants played hard for Shurmur. At this point a year ago, players were getting suspended and the locker room was fracturing. The team was coming apart. The fact that that hasn’t happened this season, and that they fought back on Monday rather than folding their tents and figuring the outcome didn’t matter because the season was already lost, was something fans should feel good about. Again, it’s progress.Manning leading a game-winning drive, the 36th of his career and maybe the last one we will ever see from the best quarterback in franchise history, was a feel-good moment. It is also probably what most of the headlines will focus on.What was really important, though, was that the Giants made progress.That, really, was the best thing that happened on Monday night.
