The BBH Camp Report for Saturday August 6th

In six days the NY Giants will be playing their first pre-season game at home against Miami and they are chomping at the bit to get into some real action. I reflect back on last year without JPP, question marks at Safety and Linebacker, several players walking wounded and questions about where is Cruz and can Rueben Randle step up to take his place. There were questions about the Running Backs and of course the Offensive Line. Even at Corner, the Defense was suspect except for DRC.

 

Fast forward to August 2016 and a few phrases come to mind. Conspicuously Missing, Continuity, Upgrade and Addition by Subtraction.

A LOOK AT THE NFL OFFICIATING CHANGES PT 1

Each year the NFL rulesmakers tweak the rules in most part to address situations that arose during the season and, at least lately, to improve player safety. The changes often take two forms: a) new or revised rules and b) changes to the wording contained in the rule book intended to clarify existing rules. [A further mechanism are the Points of Emphasis that that are issued to the officials and shared with the team to highlight situations that require further attention from the officials. One such situation last year was the setting of picks by offensive receivers that should be (and were) called as Offensive Pass Interference.]  Given the number of such changes this year, I will address them in two separate postings.   

 

Specifically, the rules changes are as follows:

 

4-5-1 and 4-6-5 - Makes it a foul for delay of game when a team timeout is erroneously granted.

A LOOK AT THE NFL OFFICIATING CHANGES

by BayAreaGiants (Al)


It is almost time to play football again and time to take a look at some of the changes that have (or haven't) been made related to NFL officiating during the off season. 

NFL Front Office Changes 

Despite the assumptions of some and the claims of many, the discipline (i.e., fines and suspensions) that is handed down weekly to NFL players is not the work of Roger Goodell but a committee within the NFL office previously headed by Merton Hanks, the ex-49er and reporting to Troy Vincent, Executive Vice President of Football Operations. Both Hanks and Vincent, as well as the other members of the committee are ex-players.

Hanks left his position with the NFL during the offseason and the league has announced that Jon Runyan has been appointed to a newly created position of vice president of policy and rules administration. Among his duties, Runyan will serve as the executive in charge of on-field discipline — namely, fines and suspensions — with the approval of the executive vice president of operations and the commissioner. Runyan will also “oversee club and game-related initiatives related to players … and also supervise the Uniform and Protective Equipment Inspection Program.”

Big Blue View

Receiver-needy Carolina would be good landing spot for Cruz I hate to say that I told you so, but I told you so. When we looked at potential landing spots for former New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, the Carolina Panthers seemed like an obvious fit. On Monday, Cruz reportedly visited with the Panthers. Why does Cruz to the Panthers make sense? First, because Carolina GM Dave Gettleman was still a member of the Giants’ personnel department when Cruz broke in with the Giants back in 2010. Second, because the Panthers really need wide receivers for Cam Newton...

ESPN panel comes up with four-year, $59 million average If a panel of salary cap experts queried by ESPN is correct, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul might not command quite as much money on the free agent market as previously thought. ESPN’s group of experts estimated that Pierre-Paul could receive a projected contract of four years and $59 million, with $21 million guaranteed. That works out to an average of $14.75 million annually. That is far less than the five-year, $85 million contract with $52.5 million the Giants gave Olivier Vernon last year. The annual salary...
