The Daily News Live crew discusses the comments of new Giants’ Offensive Coordinator Ben McAdoo who said Eli Manning lost his fundamentals last year.
Missouri DE Michael Sam is a first team All-American and the 2013 SEC Defensive Player of the Year. He is headed for the NFL this May as a highly-touted prospect who should be taken sometime on Day Two of the draft, in either the second or third round.
His admission this week that he is gay may or may not have an impact on his draft status this spring. Yesterday, the Giants’ ownership stated Sam’s admission has not changed his position on their draft board.
The Daily News Live panel talk about Michael Sam’s ESPN interview and his impact as an openly gay athlete playing in professional sports:
LoudMouths: Adam Schein and Chris Carlin discuss whether New York has proven worthy of hosting a Super Bowl.
Covino and Rich discuss some possible prop bets to take on Super Bowl Sunday.
Sal Licata and Robin Lundberg discuss whether Victor Cruz receiving a contract extension changed Hakeem Nicks’ attitude this past season.
The Giants are interviewing candidates for their vacant OC position this week. The list includes former assistant Mike Sullivan and recently dismissed Titans’ OC Dowell Loggains.
LoudMouths Adam Schein and Sal Licata debate the Giants’ search for a new offensive coordinator and Eli Manning’s decline.
SNYGiants lead writer John Fennelly is joined by Jim Mancari, Craig Santucci and Marco Imperiati to discuss the state of the Giants after losing 23-0 to Seattle at home last Sunday and this week’s trip to Detroit.
This week’s topics:
Kevin Gilbride comfortable and smug. Time to move on?
New QB coach a must…no debate needed.
Antrel Rolle – like or dislike what was said…it needed to be said.
How do the Giants overcome paying Beatty so much money?
Eli: can he be fixed? What is the problem? What can the Giants do to level out his cap number?
Tom: is he still the best coach for this team?
Who will be the players to survive this mess? Is the problem as big as it seems or are their issues that can be addressed in the offseason (FA, Draft)
Is this the end of Hakeem Nicks in blue? Why the Giants won’t be signing him.
GEICO SportsNite covers the Giants’ practice on Thursday where members of the team speak about New York’s performance this year.
Daily News Live: The panel debates which of Victor Cruz’s season-ending injuries is more worrisome: his concussion or knee injury.
Not a pleasant experience for the Giants and their fans yesterday at MetLife Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks came in here and squashed what’s left of the Giants” offense, 23-0.
“I expected a great effort today. I think defensively and with our special teams, we got it,” said Tom Coughlin after the game. “Offensively we did not – there’s no way to sugarcoat it. A pathetic offensive performance – we didn’t block anybody, we didn’t make any plays, we didn’t create any opportunities for ourselves. I told the players who prepared and gave great effort that I appreciated what they did, and I told those that were obvious they had not, that I felt sorry for them because they’re missing the whole point.”
GEICO SportsNIte has the post game reaction from the Giants’ locker room:
From yesterday’s programming….
The Daily News Live panel discusses whether the Giants’ season is officially over following their 24-21 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.
The LoudMouths discuss Tony Romo’s performance compared to Eli Manning and the Giants in the Cowboys’ 24-21 victory on Sunday.
From Monday’s programming….
LoudMouths: Chris Carlin and Eamon McAnaney debate whether the Giants should trade wide receiver Hakeem Nicks before Tuesday’s trade deadline.
Fennelly: I was an advocate of trading Nicks because the Giants are likely to lose him regardless in free agency. But now, figuring they aren’t going to get higher than a third rounder for him, it makes no sense to trade him. First, it would send the wrong message to the team. Sure, Nicks has has his ‘misunderstandings’ with Coughlin and Reese, but there is no reason to jettison him out of here a la Jeremy Shockey. Second, they will get a compensatory pick for him in 2015 should he walk next March.
Daily News Live talks with Giants’ safety Antrel Rolle about the win over the Eagles and the team’s expectations going forward.
Fennelly: Although Tom Coughlin wouldn’t admit it, Will Hill has stepped into the FS spot, pushing Ryan Mundy aside. Don’t get me wrong, Mundy has played well, but Hill is a more physical player and has more upside. Both players have complimented Rolle, and as a result he is having one of best seasons as a pro.
