New York Giants: Golden Tate Claims To Be One Of The Most Reliable Receivers “For A Decade”

New York Giants offseason acquisition, Golden Tate.

The receiving corps looks very different this year for the New York Giants. The team has moved on from Odell Beckham and when that trade happened, many asked who would be the player to step up and replace the former number one receiver. Would the team rely solely on Sterling Shepard and possibly on a drafted rookie, too? Or would they look to free agency? Giants fans didn’t have to wait that long to find out the answer, as the addition of Golden Tate was a quick one following the departure of Beckham.

But most Giants fans won’t know what kind of player Tate really is, just yet. Tate spent the 2018 season in the NFC East division with the rival Philadelphia Eagles, but before that, Tate played for the Seattle Seahawks and the Detroit Lions, two teams that the Giants don’t see as often.

However, if Tate himself is to be believed, there’s some good reasons to be excited about the new addition to the offense.

“I’ve had a chip on my shoulder my entire career. I continue to show up and play ball. I feel like I’ve been one of the most reliable receivers in this league for a decade,” said Tate, speaking to the media on Thursday.

And for once, the Giants’ locker room was something that was praised instead of the subject of some negative rumor. It’s the first time in awhile that things have been like that.

“You can already tell a week in we have a really solid locker room. It’s been great so far. I’m looking forward to building these relationships,” Tate also said.

One of the important relationships will be the one with second year running back Saquon Barkley, who is possibly the leading player on the entire team. So far, it looks like Tate and Barkley will get along just fine. “I get caught staring at that dude. I’m not going to lie to you… He has the potential to be one of the best backs ever.”

Both Tate and Barkley will be under immense pressure as more of the workload falls on them with the departure of Beckham. Will they live up to it? We’ll just have to wait for the 2019 season and see.

The New York Giants are Finally a ‘Team’ – Players Comment on the New Atmosphere

New York Giants, Sterling Shepard, Saquon Barkley

Just two years ago the New York Giants were in more than just a state of peril, they were spiraling towards their demise with no end in sight. Eli Apple and Landon Collins were causing serious issues in the locker room, leaders were deteriorated to their raw self, and management was benching Eli Manning for Geno Smith.

Essentially, the entire state of the franchise was in jeopardy, and it required a complete overhaul in management and personnel. General manager Dave Gettleman and his no-nonsense approach have found a way to not only revitalize the offensive line but has improved the state of the locker room and brought in players to maintain it.

Newly signed receiver Golden Tate has already seen the camaraderie on the Giants, stating:

“You can already tell a week in we have a really solid locker room. It’s been great so far. I’m looking forward to building these relationships.”

Installing fresh leaders that have no relation to the dark days of the past was a priority going into the offseason. Players like Antoine Bethea, Markus Golden, Kevin Zeitler, and Tate will all play a significant role in helping the younger guys develop.

The New York Giants are fighting to succeed:

In addition, extending Sterling Shepard was a great move for the atmosphere of the team. His leadership abilities and skill set will help his teammates elevate their game and improve in any way possible.

The trio of Saquon Barkley, Wayne Gallman, and Evan Engram have been pushing themselves to improve as well.

The biggest takeaway from Thursday’s press-conference is simply – the Giants finally seem to be a team and not a group of individuals. It’s often surprising how effective a united club can be even if they have holes in different parts of their game.

New York Giants: Why The Giants Should Trade Up With The Broncos In The Draft

The New York Giants could draft Dwayne Haskins with the 6th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The New York Giants are heading into a crucial NFL Draft for the franchise’s future. After passing on a quarterback in 2018, the question is whether or not the Giants draft one in the 2019 NFL Draft. With two 1st-round picks and 12 total picks, the Giants have plenty of options at quarterback.

However, some recent reports seem to suggest that the Giants do not plan on drafting a quarterback with their first draft pick. Rumor has it the Giants will look to get the best defensive player available with the 6th overall pick. Fortunately for the Giants, they also have the 17th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

This gives the Giants the ability to draft a defender and try to draft their franchise quarterback, too. The only issue is whether or not a quality quarterback will be available for the Giants with the 17th pick. One possibility for the Giants is a potential trade up in the draft to secure their future franchise signal-caller.

The Broncos Are Reportedly Interested In Trading Back

The Denver Broncos hold the 10th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Broncos seem to be in full rebuild mode and are looking to stockpile draft picks for the future. This could be the reason for the Broncos to move back in the draft.

According to multiple reports, there is a “growing sense” that the Broncos want to trade back. The Broncos love linebacker prospect Devin White but he is unlikely to still be available when the Broncos are on the clock. Because of this, it might be wise for the Giants to trade back in the NFL Draft.

The Broncos also need a quarterback, but they do not seem to find the need to be as pressing as the Giants do. The Broncos have been mostly linked to Missouri quarterback prospect Drew Lock. If they trade back, there is a chance the Broncos will still be able to draft Lock. Additionally, the Broncos have also reportedly shown interest in Ohio State quarterback prospect Dwayne Haskins.

But if the Broncos decide they prefer Drew Lock to Dwayne Haskins, it might be wise for them to trade back and let someone else have Haskins. Could that someone else be the Giants?

Why The Giants Should Consider Trading Up With The Broncos

The Giants do have a starting quarterback in Eli Manning. However, Manning is a 16-year veteran quarterback nearing the end of his career. The Giants need to prepare themselves for the post-Manning era. This is why they should take a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft.

If the Giants have identified Dwayne Haskins as their next franchise quarterback, they will need to trade up for him (if they choose to go defense with the 6th pick). After the 6th pick, there are not any suitors for Haskins until the Broncos at 10.

The Jaguars at 7 have Nick Foles on a massive contract. The Lions at 8 are pleased with Matthew Stafford. And the Bills at 9 drafted their quarterback, Josh Allen, just last year. But, at the 10th pick, the Broncos sit with an aging Joe Flacco at quarterback. Not the ideal situation in 2019.

Despite this, the Broncos are considering trading back. Maybe they do not identify any quarterbacks in this draft class as franchise guys. It is possible they will be looking towards the 2020 NFL Draft or that they will try to trade for Josh Rosen.

Regardless of their reasoning for wanting to trade back, the Giants should pounce on the opportunity to trade up. The Giants will only need to give up their 2nd round pick (and the 17th pick, obviously) in order to move up 7 spots. But, if doing this would allow the Giants to draft their next franchise quarterback, it will be well worth it.

Why The Giants Might Want To Trade Up For Dwayne Haskins

Dwayne Haskins could potentially be that next franchise quarterback for the Giants. In just one year as a starter in college, Haskins broke multiple records on his way to finishing third in the Heisman Trophy voting.

Dwayne Haskins finished his 2018 season with 4831 passing yards, 50 touchdown passes, and only 8 interceptions. His willingness to sit behind Eli Manning will make him an attractive draft target to the Giants. Haskins is a pure, pocket-passing quarterback.

If Dwayne Haskins is able to take some time, learn, and develop, Haskins could be exactly what the Giants are looking for in their next franchise quarterback.

New York Giants Could Grab Dominant Red Zone Receiver in Second Round

Could the New York Giants go after Hakeem Butler in the 2019 NFL draft?

With the New York Giants signing Golden Tate as a possession receiver to replace some of the productivity Odell Beckham Jr. provided for the team, it opens up a void in the red zone.

The Giants lack a true big-bodied wideout that can snag those 50/50 balls in the endzone. They could look towards Iowa State receiver, Hakeem Butler, to provide value in that sense.

What would Hakeem Butler offer the New York Giants?

At 6’6″, 225-pounds, Butler is a massive pass catcher with the ability to snag the ball at its highest point. His physical tools are impressive, running a 4.48 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. Providing Eli Manning with a tool of this caliber would undoubtedly increase his red zone production and touchdown conversion rate.

In addition to Butler’s stellar jump-ball ability, he’s a great long-ball option as well. With huge strides and length, he has the ability to speed past corners and get beyond the free safety. While he does offer an advantage physically, his route running isn’t refined and would need to develop that part of his game to emerge as a top option for the Giants.

The Iowa State product reminds me of a lesser Calvin Johnson – he has the size, speed, and catch radius to replicate his production with a bit of growth in other tangible aspects. Racking up 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns last season attests to his abilities on the field, and an astounding 22 yards per reception adds to the hype.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein described Butler:

Big long-strider with exceptional length and good build-up speed to challenge cover corners and safeties down the field. Butler’s unique play strength after the catch allows him to win contested deep balls and then plow through tackle attempts to create chunk plays and long touchdowns. His routes are basic and clunky and will limit how teams can use him. A greater concern will be those inconsistent hands that could turn quarterbacks against him unless he improves them. He’s a work in progress, but the traits and potential are worth taking a shot.

Superman Brett Gardner Saves New York Yankees From Enemy Red Sox

New York Yankees, Brett Gardner

Clint Frazier singled on the first pitch of the seventh, followed by a walk from Mike Tauchman. After Giovanny Urshela struck out, Austin Romine walked and pulled Boston reliever Brandon Workman out of the game. Ryan Brasier relieved Workman to pitch to New York Yankees center-fielder Brett Gardner. On an 0-2 fastball high in the zone, Gardner laced it to the first row in right center-field for a grand slam, as the Yankees took a 5-3 lead.

The bullpen held the Red Sox scoreless as the Yankees held on for a 5-3 win and a two game sweep to improve to 8-9. The Red Sox fell to 6-13, one of the worst records to start a season by a team that just won the World Series.

Happ recovered from a shaky start

After giving up three runs over the first two innings, JA Happ settled in and pitched pretty well over 6 1/3 innings. He gave up those three runs to JD Martinez and Christian Vasquez on a solo home run and a two-run home run, respectively. After the second, he gave up just three hits.

Happ struck out four on Wednesday, and walked just one. He threw first pitch strikes to 18 of the 25 batters he faced. He worked seven ground-balls and seven fly-balls.

Tommy Kahnle relieved Happ to get just two outs, but picked up the win. Adam Ottavino came in the eighth to load the bases, but worked out of it unscathed.

Aroldis Chapman entered in the ninth to get the save, working a 1-2-3 inning.

Gardy saved the day

Brett Gardner had just one hit, but it was the big one in the grand slam. It was also Gardner’s 100th home run. Frazier was responsible for the other run on an RBI double.

The Yankees had just five hits, but got on base four more times than that from walks and errors. Frazier had three hits, and Luke Voit had a hit, too.

On Thursday, the Yankees begin a four game set with the Kansas City Royals before heading out west. Game one is at 6:35PM on YES and Fox Sports Go. Domingo German gets the start for the Yankees against Homer Bailey of the Royals.

New York Giants: Predicting who the Giants will Win Against in 2019

New York Giants, Saquon Barkley

The New York Giants 2019 regular season schedule has been released and it’s filled with challenges and games that some might consider “easy.” However, if we’ve learned anything from the past two years of mediocrity, there’s no such thing as an easy NFL game, but nonetheless, we are going to take a look at which ones ‘should’ be for the Giants.

Taking a look at the New York Giants schedule:

  • Week 1: at Dallas Cowboys (Sept. 8, 4:25 p.m.)
  • Week 2: vs. Buffalo Bills (Sept. 15, 1:00 p.m.)
  • Week 3: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sept. 22, 4:05 p.m.)
  • Week 4: vs. Washington Redskins (Sept. 29, 1:00 p.m.)
  • Week 5: vs. Minnesota Vikings (Oct. 6, 1:00 p.m.)
  • Week 6: at New England Patriots (Oct. 10, 8:20 p.m.)
  • Week 7: vs. Arizona Cardinals (Oct. 20, 1:00 p.m.)
  • Week 8: at Detroit Lions (Oct. 27, 1:00 p.m.)
  • Week 9: vs. Dallas Cowboys (Nov. 4, 8:15 p.m.)
  • Week 10: at New York Jets (Nov. 10, 1:00 p.m.)
  • Week 11: BYE
  • Week 12: at Chicago Bears (Nov. 24, 1:00 p.m.)*
  • Week 13: vs. Green Bay Packers (Dec. 1, 1:00 p.m.)*
  • Week 14: at Philadelphia Eagles (Dec. 9, 8:15 p.m.)*
  • Week 15: vs. Miami Dolphins (Dec. 15, 1:00 p.m.)*
  • Week 16: at Washington Redskins (Dec. 22, 1:00 p.m.)*
  • Week 17: vs. Philadelphia Eagles (Dec. 29, 1:00 p.m.)*

After a disappointing 2018 campaign that saw the Giants to a 5-11 record, offseason changes were made to ensure the team continues to develop and doesn’t backtrack. Trading Odell Beckham Jr. likely wasn’t the start everyone had imagined, but the Giants do have two first-round draft picks and a ton of capital to begin filling holes with youth players.

Additionally, the team will have over $80 million in cap to spend next season. Looking at the schedule, we can immediately say that week 1 will be difficult, especially playing in Dallas. Weeks 2-3 should represent a solid opportunity to grab wins early on in the season – playing against the Bills and Buccaneers respectively. Their 2018 records were 6-10 and 5-11.

Next up on the docket is the Washington Redskins, Landon Collins’ new team, so they surely deserve a can of whoop ass opened on them. This should be a test for the Giants against a rising division rival, but being at home will give them the upper hand.

Skipping two tough matchups against the Vikings and Patriots, we find ourselves at home against the Arizona Cardinals. Who knows, maybe Josh Rosen will be on Big Blue by then, but most likely not. This will be a solid test for the Giants who need to put lesser teams away, they cannot let Arizona sneak past them, being that they have more holes on the offensive line than the Giants did when Ereck Flowers was acting as a turnstile at left tackle.

Facing off against the Lions in Detroit will be a test, but a very winnable game. The Lions have featured an inconsistent offensive line and unstable defense. Matthew Stafford fluctuates from Pro Bowl level talent to high school level on a weekly basis, so the Giants can easily rattle him with a decent display from the pass rushers.

The Cowboys and Jets will prove to be difficult games, especially with LeVeon Bell and CJ Mosley signing with the Jets this past offseason. The next ‘easy’ game is against the Miami Dolphins who are also in relative quarterback purgatory, and the Redskins in week 16. These are two very winnable games given the team has come together and no injuries have occurred to any playmakers (knock on wood). The Dolphins have Ryan Fitzmagic who is about as inconsistent as Eli Manning being chased by a pack of wild geese.

All in all, the Giants could walk away with seven wins from the more inadequate football teams on the schedule. Given they manage to win some more prime matchups, 2019 could shape up to be a decent one.

Prediction: 9-7

New York Giants 2019 Schedule Officially Released

There’s still months to go before the NFL season but we now know the teams that the New York Giants are going to face. The NFL schedule is out and the Giants have an interesting slate that includes some interesting out of division matchups. If you want to check out the full schedule, you can do so here.

The AFC East is playing the NFC East this year which means that the Giants will get to face off with both the Jets and the Patriots. The dates of those games are now confirmed, and interestingly, the latter is scheduled to be a Thursday Night Football game.

Many Giants fans won’t be too crazy about the idea of playing in primetime after the team’s poor performances on national TV last year, but the team has three such outings this season. One of them is the game against the defending champion Patriots which could either be a statement win or a blowout loss depending on how the Giants are doing at that point in the season. The game is in week six, after all, meaning there will be time to judge the performances of the team leading up to it.

The next one is when the Giants host their bitter rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, at home on Monday Night Football. The Cowboys won both matchups in 2018 including winning the second one by one point, so there will be definite pressure to come up with a better result this time. The third is in week 14 against fellow division rivals Philadelphia, which will also be on Monday Night Football.

The Sunday Night game also hasn’t been announced yet for week 17 so there’s a chance, albeit a small one, that the team’s second game against Philadelphia will be moved to that slot.

The Giants will also notably play the other team that shares their stadium, the New York Jets. This game will be in week 10 and will have a regular 1:00 PM ET start time. The season opener is once again against the Dallas Cowboys and will happen on the road, with a 4:25 PM ET start time.

How many of these games will the Giants win, and which ones are you the most excited for? The schedule release, after all, is a time when every fan can be excited, regardless of the state of their team. Right now, everybody is still 0-0.
