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

Would Giants be interested in a back similar to Paul Perkins and Shane Vereeen? After parting ways with Rashad Jennings and with Shane Vereen entering the final year of his contract, it seems likely that the New York Giants will select a running back at some point in the 2017 NFL Draft. Many Giants fans are looking for bigger, more powerful running backs to partner with Paul Perkins. However, there is something to be said for partnering a smaller, faster running back who might not offer much contrast to Perkins, but would offer fresh legs with similar capabilities....

This one will use the Fanspeak simulator and the latest CBS Sports Big Board. There is one other stipulation — the last two times I did this the first selection was Utah offensive tackle Garett Bolles.
