David Sills scores and Matt Cole does everything:Champions
After two joint practices, the time had come to tie up for a game.
The New York Giants took on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday evening in the second seven day stretch of the preseason. While they left away with a 17-13 misfortune, it was another chance for the Giants to assess their list in surprisingly realistic.
“I’m proud of the team and the way they came out and competed,” coach Joe Judge said. “This is definitely a positive week for us as a team, and we got better this week. We got a lot of quality work in two days of practice with a lot of our vets and young guys. We were able to evaluate our roster and evaluate a lot of players going into the stretch. We are going to New England next week, and we will be able to go with our team as narrowed down as possible. We’re not making all the final decisions, but this game will give us a clearer picture going into New England next week in terms of treating it almost like a regular-season game.”
Here are the champions from Sunday’s down:
WR Davis Sills V
Wide receiver David Sills V showed tacky hands for the duration of the day. He got four passes for 31 yards, including an eight-yard score from Lewerke to bring the Giants inside one place of the Browns with 7:11 left in the game. The Giants chose to go for the two-point change, however youngster running back Gary Brightwell was avoided the objective line. Ledges drove the group in getting yards last week against the Jets in his first game since the 2019 preseason.
OLB Oshane Ximines
The Giants wanted to get Ximines whatever number reps as could reasonably be expected on Sunday, and the external linebacker benefited as much as possible from them. Ximines drove the pass surge with three quarterback hits, including a sack.
“It was good to see X back out there with us,” Judge said. “He had a good week of practice. We just wanted to get him some reps in. Go with X and just get him back out there playing ball. He obviously missed a lot of ball last year being injured. He missed a lot of ball this year with starting camp late so the goal for him and (fellow linebacker) Ryan Anderson was to just get them as many snaps as they could with playing ball. I’m happy the way it came out. They did some nice things for us today. Obviously, there are always things to clean up. We’re never fully satisfied with the tape. However, they went out there and played a lot of ball for us and definitely did some good things.”
WR Matt Cole
The Giants broadly educated a couple of players on Sunday. Cole, who made the exceptional groups play of the game keep going week on a brought down punt, saw a few snaps at cornerback on Sunday. The do-it-all Cole likewise made a tackle on punt inclusion. In the interim, new kid on the block cornerback Rodarius Williams accepting reps at security as the mentors hope to benefit from the 6th round pick.
“Regardless of whether unique groups, offense, or protection, he simply says ‘yes sir’ and goes out there and plays 100%,” Judge said. “We were staying there and taking a gander at the measure of folks we planned to play yesterday. We knew the profundity of certain would have been an issue. We realized it would have been a hot day and playing a great deal of snaps. We just convoluted and said, Let’s released Matt out there. This person contends on punt returns against a heavy weapons specialist. How about we see what he has. To be completely forthright with you, I’ve had insight with recipients in instructional course and folks that have kept close by. One thing that intrigued us was that he didn’t flicker. He went out there. He got the ball tossed to a few times. He made a decent tackle. He halted them short in that general area and constrained a field objective. Clearly, the calls were somewhat new to him. He got a brief training keep going night on our safeguard and a few implications, yet he went out there to contend.”
“They designated my region,” Cole said. ” I would prefer not to gloat, however I don’t think a collector got the ball on my side of the field – Cole World. I figure I did very great. I just moved forward and just filled in a spot. My mentors helped as an afterthought that make certain about the protections that they run. I would simply charge.”
LB Carter Coughlin
Coughlin showed his pass-surge capacity again subsequent to getting Judge’s attention with five handles and a strip-sack in the preseason opener. On Sunday, he had a sack among four handles.
RB Devontae Booker
As Saquon Barkley increase, Devontae Booker has conveyed the heap in the backfield. He surged multiple times for 27 yards on Sunday, including a one-yard jump over the heap for a score late in the primary quarter.
“I didn’t have the foggiest idea how long I would have been out there, yet I simply needed to be a flash for the group and for the offense, go out there and do what we have been doing,” Booker said. “Got a score with it, and that is in every case great. Simply keep on improving.”
Judge said after the game that they have not settled on a choice on whether Barkley will play in the third and last preseason trip.
“We are going to the doctors and approach it as we get closer,” Judge said. “We will have conversations tomorrow and will definitely be increasing what he’s doing. I can’t tell you exactly what that’s going to be. I don’t know at this point if that’s going to include 11-on-11 or 7-on-7, or whatever it may be, but we’re going to make sure we’re very calculated with what we do. At the same time, he had a great week this week with the trainers and with what he could give us on the field. I know he is tapping his foot and getting anxious. As soon as we get the greenlight from the medical staff, we’ll keep going.”
DB Julian Love
Love filled in as a game commander, recorded five handles, and procured another moniker from his lead trainer – “Pipe Tape.”
“In a meeting in the defensive room, he said, ‘Well, we can put you in any situation, wherever we need you, you are like duct tape for us,'” Love said. “That is a true story. Now everyone is calling me duct tape now because he made that comment. It is a short-term solution – duct tape. We will move on to something more permanent.”
