Good Morning,Â New York GiantsÂ Fans!
Once again, the New York Giants walked away with more negatives than positives on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. The coaching was once again questionable, the offensive line was terrible, and the wide receivers couldn’t get any separation from coverage. A new deficiency popped up this week, though, the kicking team.
Kicker Aldrick Rosas missed two consecutive field goals and then proceeded to kick one out of bounce on a kickoff, giving the Bears excellent field position. The first missed attempt can be coughed up to a bad snap, which could put Zak Deossi, the longest-tenured starting Giant, to lose his job after this season.
Rosas, though, is on the chopping block after his fifth consecutive game with a missed field goal. Coming off a Pro Bowl season in 2018, Rosas has regressed significantly, a major surprise. His two missed attempts ultimately killed any sense of momentum for the Giants early on in the game, which kept the game within one score for the Bears heading into the second half.
Jabrill Peppers goes down:
Peppers, who returned a punt 40-yards in the second quarter, was knocked out of the game with a hip injury. Golden Tate, who also returned a punt in the first quarter, was smacked in the face and was checked for a concussion. Head coach Pat Shurmur needs to consider the potential for injury one kick returns, and putting two influential players at risk of serious injury is ludicrous.
The New York Giants’ strong safety was seen in the locker room after the game in tremendous pain, trying to convince himself that he can tough it out.
“I’m tough. I’m hoping it’s something I can tough through,” Pepper stated.
