Giants’ Joe Choose makes questionable Daniel Jones determination
Grading the Giants after Sunday’s 26-7 loss to the Cardinals.
Was Daniel Jones (11 of 21, 127 yards) able to play on his proper hamstring? He by no means ran and appeared stiff within the pocket. He fumbled 3 times, shedding one. It didn’t assist he virtually by no means had anybody operating free and that may be a recurring downside. Eight sacks allowed (two on Colt McCoy) and did anybody get a glove on LB Haason Reddick (5 sacks, three compelled fumbles)? This was regression from the offensive line, however a number of of the sacks had been the results of protection down the sector. Operating recreation (78 yards) was not good, however solely 17 makes an attempt, which is horrible. Resembling: Wayne Gallman (12-57). Too many contested grabs (and non-grabs) for Golden Tate (1-39), Sterling Shepard (3-35) and Darius Slayton (3-31). TE Evan Engram (2-18) was no issue. Getting 10 first downs and 159 complete yards is rinky-dink stuff.
Gallant first half, together with a beautiful goal-line stand, however these guys wore down within the second half. Chasing round Kyler Murray is exhausting. He went 24 of 35 for 244 yards (1 TD) passing and 13-47 speeding. Kenyan Drake (23-80) was constant on the bottom. It appeared as if the secondary was doing an excellent job on DeAndre Hopkins and you then lookup and he has 9 receptions for 136 yards. The usually-stout run protection was gouged for 159 yards. CB James Bradberry bought his NFL-high seventeenth cross breakup within the first quarter, denying the Cardinals ultimately zone to finish the goal-line stand. DT Dalvin Tomlinson dragged down Murray for a 13-yard sack, not a straightforward factor to do. It was the one sack for the Giants. Blake Martinez was capable of play regardless of a again difficulty however there weren’t sufficient solutions, particularly after halftime.
The place the heck was Dion Lewis going within the second quarter, taking the ball out from the purpose line on a kick return that resulted in a Lewis fumble on the Giants 21-yard line? Dangerous determination, worse execution. There was extra dangerous protection: Gunner C.J. Board took a dive and missed Christian Kirk on a 24-yard punt return. Later, Kirk had a 17-yard return after which an 18-yard return. Approach an excessive amount of. Riley Dixon had difficulties together with his directional kicking and his 51-yard punt late within the second quarter rolled into the tip zone for a touchback. This unit has to get its stuff collectively.
This was the primary have a look at a Joe Choose crew after an enormous upset victory and the sight was ugly. Can we query Choose’s determination to begin Jones? Jones clearly was not 100% and didn’t have a look at if he might put a profitable product on the sector. If that is what Jason Garrett’s offense appears to be like like with an motionless quarterback, it’s not fairly. Third-and-one deep shot to Shepard, a cross with little likelihood of success? What occurred to energy soccer? Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham determined to not have Bradberry shadow Hopkins everywhere in the subject and Hopkins little question loved that. Thomas McGaughey’s particular groups unit is leaking everywhere and the breakdowns in protection must cease, pronto.
