Trading away Odell Beckham Jr. was a fundamental part of their full roster overhaul, and general manager Dave Gettleman is still putting his final touches on the team. The offensive line is far from cohesive, despite the drafting of fourth overall pick Andrew Thomas, and the defense is still in the works. However, despite injuries, the Giants feel confident going into...
    New York Giants: What To Expect From The Backup Running Backs? By: Anthony Rivardo July 25, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants are a struggling and rebuilding team that lacks star talent. Except for the running back position. The Giants have one of the best running backs in the NFL in Saquon Barkley. Some may argue that he is the best running back in the NFL.

    New York Giants: How Jason Garrett can get really creative on offense By: Alexander Wilson July 25, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesWatching the New York Giants‘ offense the past two seasons has been like watching paint dry. Aside from Saquon Barkley creating something out of nothing, the excitement of the offense has been held to a minimum. Former head coach and offensive play-caller Pat Shurmur did an underwhelming job in 2019, failing to entertain fans with a high profile scheme. In his defense, rookie quarterback Daniel Jones didn’t enjoy a single game with all of his playmakers available. Games missed: Sterling Shepard (6 games missed) ...

    New York Giants Season Saved By NFLPA And NFL Coming To Deal By: Cay North July 25, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesFor a while, there was a decent chance the New York Giants wouldn’t play the 2020 season. The season was in doubt for every team and the Giants’ NFLPA representative, Nate Solder, even stated earlier this year that the league needed to get it together or there would be no football. As the time until training camp continued ticking away and no deal was made, it started to look more likely that Solder’s words would come true. However, the league has finally reached an agreement...
    New York Giants: Is Ryan Connelly ready to claim a starting role on defense? By: Alexander Wilson July 25, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesIt is not often that an NFL team starts a fifth-round pick right out of the gate. For the New York Giants, they did just that with Ryan Connelly in 2019. The Wisconsin product was not the fastest, strongest, or highest rated linebacker coming out of the draft, but he did post elite grades in one specific category. Despite being average in most facets, Connelly is one of the quickest linebackers to enter the NFL since 2010. According to PFF, he ran the...

    New York Giants: Should Nate Solder start the season at left tackle? By: Alexander Wilson July 24, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesDespite allowing 11 sacks in 2019 at left tackle, the New York Giants hold Nate Solder in high regard. He’s a hard worker and has dealt with some of the most strenuous personal issues one can imagine, but he still showed up for work every day, even if he was inconsistent. There is no question that Solder has persevered the past two seasons as his child battles cancer. However, he is prepared to take the necessary steps forward to protect young quarterback Daniel Jones. ...
    Getty New York Giants linebacker Blake Martinez Blake Martinez was a certified tackling machine during his days with the Green Bay Packers. However, despite his ability to stuff the run as well as the stat sheet while stationed in Wisconsin, his inefficiencies in pass-coverage left many wary of throwing big-money his direction this past free-agency. Yet, that didn’t stop the New York Giants, who clearly saw enough from Martinez to toss $30 million-plus his way in hopes of solidifying their linebacking corps. Good news for the G-Men, Cynthia Frelund of NFL.com believes that money was well spent, as she envisions a career-year for the league’s second-leading tackler from a season ago. In return projecting Martinez as New York’s most...

    New York Giants: Could Matt Peart earn starting reps at right tackle in 2020? By: Alexander Wilson July 24, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants are heading into the 2020 season with questions remaining on the offensive line. Despite drafting Andrew Thomas with the fourth overall pick, the continuity in the trenches has yet to be established.

    New York Giants: Rag-Tag Team Of Pass-Rushers Could Be Dangerous In 2020 By: Anthony Rivardo July 22, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants‘ defense does not have a single top-tier pass-rusher. Instead, the Giants have a rag-tag group of pass-rushers and a blitz-heavy defensive scheme to generate pressure. The Dolphins Blitzed on 35% of their snaps in 2019 with Patrick Graham running the defense. The Giants are expected to run a similar defensive scheme in 2020. New York will use its scheme to make up for its lack of EDGE talent. The Gmen do have a few talented pass-rushers on their roster, but not...

    New York Giants: Will FB Elijhaa Penny See An Expanded Role In 2020? By: Anthony Rivardo July 21, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe fullback position is dying in the NFL. Every year, NFL teams utilize the fullback position in their offense less and less. Last season, the New York Giants ran 21-personnel on just 5% of their offensive snaps. Pat Shurmur’s offense featured a heavy dosage of 11-personnel, operating out of that grouping 74% of the time (2nd-highest rate in the NFL). The Giants were rarely using the fullback position despite having a pretty talented player on the roster at that position. Elijhaa Penny has been...
