Big Blue Huddle / The Window For Success
« on: July 19, 2017, 07:01:33 AM »
What does it take to sustain success in the NFL? There have been several teams that have won back to back Super Bowls, the last being the Patriots 12 years ago but these stories are few and far between.

The Giants have never been a repeat threat the following season after a Super Bowl Championship. The closest they came was 2008 and a Strike Year perhaps killed what might have been.

Does success lead to complacency in some cases? Is it the failure of the Coaching Staff to sustain that passion and focus necessary to beat the odds?

Does the Salary Cap and the structure that General Managers build into contracts created an ebb and flow of talent along with shorter peak production years for NFL careers?

How are teams like the Patriots able to remain competitive Year after year? Is it the healthy turnover of players while retaining a key nucleus and a great franchise QB. How much credit is due to the Ownership, Management, Scouting Staff and of course the Coaching Staff?

How does the level of Conference competition contribute to the success or lack of success to potentially strong teams?

How does the fan base and the environment or culture contribute or fail to support the energy of a team? How important is chemistry and having the perfect mix of personalities and leadership? you see the Giants building on their accomplishments of last season and how long will they be able to sustain a competitive team? Is this year the realistic window for the ultimate goal?

The schedule is tacked up at the top. We could do Breakfast before or better yet, lunch after. I can't do 8/4 or 8/8.

Big Blue Huddle / The Perfect QB

... the accuracy and touch of Drew Brees.

... the toughness and big-play ability of Ben Roethlisberger.

... the mental alertness of Tom Brady.

... the leadership ability of Philip Rivers.

... the athleticism of Cam Newton.

... the arm of Matthew Stafford.

... the running ability of Russell Wilson.

... the competitiveness of Aaron Rodgers.

I'll add one. The short memory and cool of Easy Eli.
Beckham in 2016: 101 receptions for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Marshall in 2016 (with Jets) : 59 receptions for 788 yards and three touchdowns (in 15 games).

Brandon Marshall might be the best red-zone receiver in the league (along with Jordy Nelson), and the Giants sure could use the help in that category. Big Blue ranked 22nd in red-zone efficiency a year ago, only converting touchdowns 51 percent of the time. OBJ has been a star since he entered the league. He has yet to have a season with less than 1,300 receiving yards. He's a home-run hitter and can score at any time -- racking up 534 yards after the catch (YAC) in 2016. Both of these players demand the full attention of opposing defenses. It'll be interesting to see if anyone can stop this tandem.
Big Blue Huddle / Andrew Adams Expects to Start
« on: July 07, 2017, 01:01:50 PM »
"According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, New York Giants second-year safety Andrew Adams is penciled in to start at free safety for the 2017 season.
Adams was thrust into the Giants starting line up in Week 4, where he played 86.7 percent of the Giants snaps, and followed by playing all 80 defensive snaps against Green Bay in Week 5. He finished the season with 467 snaps, the third-highest total of all rookie safeties.
Adams graded well in coverage in 2016 — his coverage grade of 76.8 was the third-highest of all rookie safeties. He allowed a passer rating of just 69.3, the second-lowest rating among rookie safeties with at least 350 snaps.
He ended the season with an overall grade of 79.4, which ranked 39th of 90 players at the position."
