It was a big play, potentially a crucial one, but we're probably not sitting here dissecting it as if one delay-of-game penalty was responsible for all the Giants' ills if coach Ben McAdoo hadn't (deservedly/unusually) put the blame squarely on Eli Manning. Both of those players are regarded as projects and showed during the preseason that they're nowhere near ready to step into the line of fire.
ESPN color analyst Jon Gruden said what plenty of Lions fans must have been thinking during Monday night's game 24-10 win over the New York Giants. With 10 minutes remaining and down by 14, Manning chose to look short of the sticks on 4th-and-3, which resulted in a turnover on downs.
The penalty forced the Giants to kick a field goal in what would prove to be their final trip to the red zone on Monday night. Only about 19 of the allotted 40 seconds on the play clock remained when Manning appeared to get his instructions through the communication system in his helmet. "I didn't play great. "(The) quarterback and the center need to be on the same page there. "We need to play better as an offensive unit". While the field goal made it a one-possession game, it also underscored just how inept this offense is right now. "I knew the ball was coming but lost it in the light and then I picked it back up and I dropped it when it came down".
He did admit that he's not 100 percent yet. The play was symbolic of the Giants start to the season where they haven't exactly helped themselves. The running game had 62 yards on 18 carries, the offense had a total of 270 yards and it was 4 of 12 on third down.
It's too early for real panic to set in, isn't it? He's allowed to have a few bad games - it's not the end of the world.
The full potential of receiving options for Eli Manning is and has always been predicated on the presence of Beckham.
But New York's "Big Blue" defense remains very tough, especially against the run. This isn't 2007 though.
What good can come from these comments?
It's a familiar refrain for an offensive line which returned five starters in training camp and touted its continuity. One of the things you notice about this guy is he has quickness and speed and anytime you can take a return that far in the national football league without getting caught from behind, you have a little bit of a motor going for you.
