George Asafo-Adjei Jersey Boys

Posted by liny195 in Food on August 10th, 2019

Stock up George Asafo-Adjei Jersey Boys , stock down: Giants who are rising and falling With the New York Giants heading toward their second preseason game, which would put them halfway through the preseason, let’s do a little “stock up/stock down” check on the 90-man roster.Stock upKyle Lauletta What Lauletta’s good game and Davis Webb’s poor one did on Thursday was remind us that Webb’s good play in practice didn’t end the competition to become the backup and potential heir to the throne of Eli Manning. That competition is just getting started. Lauletta, who got a handful of first-team reps during practice on Monday, may have also cracked open the door to competing for the backup role this season.Robert Martin and Jalen Simmons I have no idea if the Giants will end up with room on the roster for at least one of these young running backs, but both showed ability with the ball in their hands vs. Cleveland. Martin, an undrafted free agent from Rutgers, ran five times for 38 Hunter SharpThe wide receiver/return man took all the first-half punt and kickoff returns vs. the Cleveland Browns, and highlighted his evening with a 42-yard kickoff return. The takeaway? Sharp is getting the first opportunity to win the job as the team’s primary return man.John Jerry I still don’t know if the veteran guard makes the 53-man roster. He doesn’t have real positional versatility. He has taken some snaps at right tackle in training camp, but that’s not a spot anyone should want to see him playing during a game that counts. Jerry, though, was solid vs. Cleveland with no pressures allowed in 28 pass-blocking snaps.John GrecoThe 11-year veteran is locked in a competition with Jerry, Zac Kerin and Chris Scott for backup spots on the interior of the offensive line. He showed Thursday that he can still do the job, posting the highest Pro Football Focus grade of any Giants offensive lineman (80.6) in 38 snaps. He allowed no pressures in 28 pass-blocking snaps, and showed versatility by playing both guard and center.Nick Becton A 28-year-old offensive tackle who has not appeared in a regular-season game since 2015, Becton played both right and left tackle vs. Cleveland and allowed no pressures in his 28 pass-blocking snaps. I still believe the Giants will be scouring the waiver wire for a veteran swing tackle, but Becton earned a closer look with his work on Thursday.Kerry WynnThe veteran isn’t really an option as a stand-up outside linebacker in a 3-4. He is also light for a 5-tech defensive end, weighing 265 pounds. Wynn, though, continues to earn his keep as part of the defensive line rotation.Grant Haley The undrafted free agent corner made a pair of nice plays vs. Cleveland, one against the run and one against the pass. In the fight for reserve corrnerback spots, Haley is giving himself a chance.Robert ThomasThe defensive lineman had a sack of Baker Mayfield on Thursday and continued to show why he will likely be part of that defensive line rotation.Avery MossAfter missing the spring while recovering from injury, Moss is showing that he has the skills to be a useful EDGE player. His 89.0 grade in 20 snaps on Thursday was the highest PFF score recorded by a Giants defender.Stock downDavis WebbWebb is still the heavy favorite to be the No. 2 quarterback this season, but much of the positive buzz he generated with solid work in the spring and training camp evaporated into questions with his erratic performance vs. Cleveland. If Lauletta’s stock is up Infant George Asafo-Adjei Jersey , and it is, Webb’s is down. He needs a bounce-back effort on Friday.Alec OgletreeThere has been a lot of optimism about what Ogletree, acquired via trade from the Los Angeles Rams, would bring to the defense. Well, in just 11 snaps vs Cleveland, Ogletree earned the lowest grade of any Giants defender,a 40.9. Cleveland tight end David Njoku burned him badly for a 36-yard touchdown reception. There is a reason the Rams were willing to part with him. Was Thursday a sign they were rightDarian ThompsonThompson, trying to win the starting free safety job, had only a 45.9 PFF grade on Thursday. He also got hurt, suffering a hamstring injury. Curtis Riley might now have the inside track on that job if he can stay healthy after battling a hamstring issue of his own.Pat Shurmur will adjust and adapt to running back injuries When the New York Giants left the Meadowlands last Monday afternoon for a week of joint practices and a preseason game with the Detroit Lions, they appeared to have a lot of problems to fix. The defense looked fragile, the offense looked anemic, and there were serious questions about the quarterback position after their 20-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns.Despite not getting back from Detroit until 5:00 am on Saturday morning — “Sleep is overrated,” Shurmur said — the team has to feel better about their performance following a 30-17 victory. But there is still work to be done, as Shurmur told reporters in his press conference Saturday afternoon. On the offensive line The Giants’ offensive line should still be considered a work in progress. The coach isn’t expecting them to be great right away, but is looking for progress over the course of the pre-season. “I thought they performed better than the week before,” Shurmur said. “Aside from the one play where the ball potentially got knocked out of Davis (Webb’s) hand, I thought the protection was pretty good. I thought we did a decent job run blocking. There’s certainly plays in there where we can do better, but for the most part, I think they battled. I think they had 25 snaps together, and there were really no communication errors. So it was a solid performance. There’s plenty of areas where we can get better, but each week they’re doing some things better and better.”About run blocking, Shurmur mentioned that he wasn’t happy with how the team ran the ball to start the game, but they responded well to a mid-game adjustment. “Again George Asafo-Adjei Jersey Draft ,” Shurmur said, “that’s part of adjusting. We try to adjust in-game. We weren’t running the ball as well as I wanted to early and then we made some adjustments and found a way to do it later. It’s just like your practice plans, too. I think what’s important is you make adjustments to them. I have a certain amount of work I think we need to get done and certain things we want to practice, but if you have less of this player and more of another in terms of groups, you just feature those guys in practice.”He also added that the apparent issues timing the snap between Davis Webb and Jon Halapio aren’t a concern. Shurmur said, when asked if that was evidence of a communication issue, “No, that was actually us working our operation. We were in silent count, sometimes it takes a little bit longer to get it done because of the communication and how we do it. It’s great because we had to practice it and Davis (Webb) was involved as the starter, so it’s just a little bit different than having Eli (Manning) in there. It’s all good in a preseason game. We were fighting the clock a little more than I wanted to, but those are the things you learn by being in silent count in an away arena.”On the running back situation Giants were already down one running back with the injury to Saquon Barkley. Shurmur confirmed Saturday afternoon that the team would be without a second running back with RB Jalen Simmons, as well as linebacker Calvin Munson, in the concussion protocol. “Yeah,” Shurmur said, “I guess I can comment on that. Jalen had a concussion and he’s actually doing well today. At least the reports are that he’s doing well. He’s moving around, he was actually moving around last night, so we’re just going to take it day by day with him and see how he progresses. Calvin Munson also had a concussion, so they’re both involved in the protocol and certainly we don’t ever want to put a player on the field that shouldn’t be out there, and so we’ll let this thing in both these cases, we’ll let them come back as they can.”With the team now down two running backs for the time being, Shurmur will have to get creative and make adjustments. Interestingly, one of the adjustments he mentioned could be using fullback Shane Smith as a running back.Shurmur said, “Yeah, we will just manage it. I think we have ways we can get into different personnel groupings. We have quite a few (running backs) and we will get what we can out of them. We have a fullback in Shane Smith that can take someone’s running back work. We’ll make it work.”In addition to using Smith as a running back George Asafo-Adjei NFL Jersey , some also noticed a play in practice which saw Evan Engram line up in the backfield as a ball carrier — that, however, doesn’t seem like a wrinkle the team would use in a preseason game.On the defense Perhaps the biggest coup for the Giants of the 2018 offseason was the hiring of James Bettcher to rebuild the Giants’ defense. Once Bettcher became available, Shurmur said that he didn’t have to sell himself or his defense. “There was no sales pitch,” Shurmur said. “When I put this thing together, I had a coordinator in mind that I wanted because he was hard to play against. So, I saw on tape, by playing against him, what our defense should look like, and he’s just trying to implement that. There was no sales pitch. I think I’ve been pleased with how hard they’ve played, especially the first couple of groups. We’ve been able to kind of control the run, and at times get pressure on that quarterback, and that’s what you want to do, but he didn’t have to sell me. I think just having played against him and knowing that he was available, I wanted to bring him here in New York.”Perhaps the biggest concern with the Giant’s starting defense after two preseason games is covering running backs and tight ends in the middle of the field. This isn’t a problem which is exclusive to the Giants — their own offense will attempt to cause those same issues for defenses throughout the season. But, it is a problem, and may not be completely avoidable. “Any time a linebacker gets matched up on the back,” Shurmur said, “it’s something that we all work on. Actually the sack, what would have been a sack but was actually an incomplete pass, we were doing the same thing against their linebackers, so it happens at times. The key is if the ball gets completed, then we have to get it on the ground. It’s not secret, all teams try to do it.”That attitude springs from his general philosophy regarding football: Take care of the football George Asafo-Adjei NFL Draft , disrupt the on defense, and don’t make a bad situation worse. Shurmur said, “I’ve always believed if you take care of the ball and on defense if you take it away from them, that’s the obvious, and then if one of those things happens to you and you’re on the bad side of it, you’ve got to keep them from scoring or if you get a turnover, you need to score. That’s the mindset, and it’s kind of a totality of the things I’ve learned over the years.”On the Herzlich penaltyThe Giants mounted a respectable pass rush against the Detroit Lions, generating pressure from all across their defensive front. Their box score would have looked even better had the officials not thrown a questionable flag on Mark Herzlich for unnecessary roughness. It’s a call that Shurmur feels some kind of way about.“I have a very strong opinion of that play,” Shurmur said. “We’re going to send that play in to get evaluated and we’ll see what they say, and what they do tell me, I won’t tell you. I don’t think it’s necessary to get fined in the preseason. Here’s the thing – we want to teach a physical, safe game, played by the rules, and things happen fast in games, and we all certainly see things differently in real speed, so sometimes it gets left to interpretation when you replay it in HD very slowly, so we’ll just see. Part of the preseason is everyone getting used to the new rule. Not only how to play the game, but how to officiate it; and I’m hopeful I’m going to get an answer on that play.”
