. They’re not pushing for a playoff spot http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/aut...connor-barwin-jersey , but these next eight games will help give a glimpse into what the Giants have heading into the 2019 season. While the defensive side of the ball will have a focus on what players will be there next year, the offense has the players (for the most part) and needs to focus on how to use the talent at hand better than it has been during the 1-7 start. Let’s look at some steps the Giants can take to get the offense on track in the second half.Figure out the offensive lineThere’s no other place an offensive breakdown can start than where the offense most often breaks down. The left side of the offensive line has not and likely will not change. Nate Solder is financially locked in as the left tackle and Will Hernandez is the legitimate bright spot on the line. Outside of those two spots, though, nothing has been good or consistent. Ereck Flowers was benched. Patrick Omameh was benched. Jon Greco might be on his way back to the bench.The Giants claimed guard Jamon Brown off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams last week. Brown is just 25 years old and started all 16 games from the Rams in 2017, but a suspension to start the season and good play from fill-in Austin Blythe made Brown expendable. Last season Brown played the most snaps (1,077), had the second-fewest blown blocks (18, three behind Andrew Whitworth’s 15 on 155 more snaps), and allowed just one sack, per the Football Outsiders Almanac. He might be in line to start for the Giants as early as Monday night against the 49ers. If that’s the case, it will be the the fourth different starting combination the Giants have used this season. It will also have three different starters than the Week 1 lineup. For a unit where continuity and communication are important, that’s not great turnover to have.2018 Giants OL startersWeekLTLGCRGRTWeekLTLGCRGRTBrown is on the last year of his rookie deal, so if he does play well and the Giants want to keep him, they’ll have to re-sign him. If that’s not the case, the Giants might still be looking for three new starters on the offensive line come the offseason. That won’t be an easier task than it was this past offseason.Any complaints about the running game also fall into this category.Get in motion, pick up the paceLast season with the Minnesota Vikings, Pat Shurmur used pre-snap motion to create mismatches with the defense. This season http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/aut...-b.j.-goodson-jersey , that’s gone away. Per Sports Info Solutions charting, the Giants use pre-snap motion on the ninth-lowest percentage of plays in the league.But they also have the sixth-biggest difference between yards per play with motion and yards per play without it. This should be an easy element to add to the offense since it’s something they have used at times already and it’s something Shurmur used way more often in his last stop.If the Giants aren’t going to use motion to make defenses uncomfortable, then maybe they can start to use pace. As it stands right now, the Giants are one of the slowest teams in the league when it comes to the pace of the offense, per Football Outsiders. On situation neutral plays — basically non-garbage time — the Giants run the 28th quickest offense in the league. At any point in the game when the score is within six points either way, the Giants are the 32nd-fastest offense.When the deficit gets to seven points or more, the Giants turn into the league’s fifth-fastest offense and that is when the unit has been the most dangerous and done its most damage. Since the Giants don’t change personnel as much as expected, getting to the line quicker and using pace to create mismatches for the likes of Odell Beckham and Saquon Barkley would help.The Giants don’t have to turn into the Chip Kelly Eagles (though, Shurmur was that team’s offensive coordinator), but a combination of limited misdirection, whether it be play-action or pre-snap motion, and a slow pace is the exact opposite of what’s happening with the evolution of modern offenses.Reinvent the wheelSaquon Barkley’s role in the passing game has been underwhelming at best over the first half of the season. He’s still been more productive as a receiver than a runner (minus-3.78 Expected Points Added on the ground and 13.1 EPA on pass targets), but his receiving production could be even better. He’s consistently targeted as a check down option and only recently has he gotten more work past the line of scrimmage.The easiest way to get Barkley involved past the line of scrimmage and limit the time needed to pass block is the wheel route. By EPA, the wheel route is one of the most efficient routes in football and when done correctly out of the backfield it sets the running back up with a matchup that’s nearly impossible for the defense to win.What makes the wheel route so hard to defend is that the defense usually has a linebacker on the running back when it’s man coverage. The route starts like it’s going to be a flat route, which gets the opposing defender moving horizontally, and then the running back turns up the field. There aren’t going to be many linebackers who can go from lateral movement to chasing a back on a vertical route. There are fewer who would be able to keep up with an athlete like Barkley.On this play, the Rams used it inside the 10-yard line and got Todd Gurley on linebacker Anthony Barr. When Gurley got out of the backfield Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , Barr had to stop and try to read Gurley’s break, but there was none and Gurley was able to run past him up the seam for an easy touchdown.The wheel can work on its own at any part of the field, but it can be opened up even more when there’s a route combination with it from the receiver on the same side. Typically that’s a slant or hitch that creates a natural pick that adds an extra element the defender needs to get through on his path to the running back. The Carolina Panthers used this on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Devin Funchess ran a quick slant and turned to get in the way of the linebacker while Christian McCaffrey ran an uncontested wheel out of the same side and had a clear path to the end zone.Opposing defenses against the Giants will already be focused on the slant potential from Odell Beckham, so adding a layer to that with a Barkley wheel outside of it creates a dangerous combination that shouldn’t be able to be defended. On this note, the Giants should use more combinations with Beckham and Barkley on the same side of the formation, wheel or not.Getting Barkley more efficient targets will help open up the passing game for others (more than a good running game would). The ability to gain yards on quick passes is something the Giants have tried to accomplish, but getting those routes open past the line of scrimmage will be significantly more useful than the high volume of dump offs Barkley has seen in the passing game so far.Giants at Texans, Week 3: First look at Sunday’s matchup of 0-2 teams 0-2 is not how the New York Giants and Houston Texans, both teams that have hopes of being playoff contenders this season after difficult 2017 seasons, hoped to start the 2018 NFL season. It is, however, the reality. Houston open the week heavily favored to be the team that gets its first victory on Sunday at NRG Stadium.Let’s take our first look at Sunday’s 1 p.m. ET matchup.By the numbers0.80 — That’s how many rushing yards Giants running backs are getting before contact. That’s the worst in the league by a wide margin.117 — That’s how many yards after contact Saquon Barkley, Wayne Gallman and Jonathan Stewart have gained in two games, fifth-most in the league.119.9 — The passer rating for Eli Manning on third down after two games. That, of course, is when he hasn’t been buried beneath the pass rush.8 — That’s how many times Manning has been sacked thus far. That puts him on pace for 64, which would be the fourth-most all time. The most times Manning has been sacked in a season was 39 Womens Janoris Jenkins Jersey , in 2013, when the Giants started 0-6. He was sacked 31 times last season.14 — That’s how many pass receptions Saquon Barkley has last week. That’s a Giants franchise record, NFL rookie and third-most all-time for a running back in a single game. Here is a look at the top single games receiving by NFL running backs:Single-game receptions by running backsPLAYER TEAMDATERECPLAYER TEAMDATEREC0 — The combined total of sacks and takeaways the Giants had Sunday vs. Dallas. The Giants, per the team’s PR department, are 2-21 since 1990 when that happens.300 — The number of rushing attempts by Manning in his career. He has only 546 yards to show for those.34 — The number of games the Giants have gone without scoring 30 points. The last time they did so was Jan. 3, 2016 in a 35-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. That was Tom Coughlin’s final game, and Pat Shurmur’s only game as Eagles interim head coach. The streak is the longest for the franchise since the Giants went 57 consecutive games without scoring at least 30 points from 1975-79.32 — Where the Giants offense ranks after two games in yardage per play gained on first down.343 — Manning (340) needs three touchdown passes to surpass Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton for seventh-most touchdown passes all-time.89.6 — That’s the highest Week 2 Pro Football Focus grade awarded to any Giant.About the TexansHouston went 4-12 last season, a year that went up in smoke when then-rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson blew out his knee in practice. The Texans were 3-3 in games Watson started last year, but only 1-9 in their other games.This season, the Texans have opened the year with losses to the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans. Texans fans are already speculating about/calling for the firing of head coach Bill O’Brien, who is in his fifth season as the team’s head coach.The week aheadStick with Big Blue View for all your coverage leading up to Sunday’s game.
