w York Giants-related questions come tumbling out.Jordan Datchko asks: I believe coaches can adequately evaluate players in practice and that they don’t “need” to see them in a game. Games help but either a player can do something or he can’t. Starting Kyle (or Webb) is a story but not relevant to what the Giants do in the off season. Why am I wrong?Ed says: Jordan New York Giants T-Shirts , I’m not sure you are wrong. One of the reasons Davis Webb not getting in games last season was an evaluation issue is because there was a new GM and coaching staff this year. They didn’t see him in practice a year ago, and the lack of game film left them nothing to go on. The Giants see Kyle Lauletta every day in practice. They know his skill set. They know where he is in his progression. All of us on the outside would like to see Lauletta play. The backup quarterback is always the most popular guy when a team is struggling. Or, in this case the backup to the backup.If he’s ready to play the experience would do him some good, and I do think we will see Lauletta at some point in the final four games. If we don’t, then we don’t. Maybe the Giants think he needs the redshirt year and a full offseason before he’s really ready to compete for the No. 1 or No. 2 job in 2019.Ed says: In no particular order, offensive line, pass rusher, cornerback, linebacker, safety. I can’t or won’t argue with just about any pick on the defensive side, especially if it’s someone who can rush the passer. On the offensive line, the center and right tackle spots are the biggest priorities in my view.Ed says: Umm ... good question. I’ll get back to you when I find one.Ed says: Phil, I listed obvious positions of need above. There are quite a few. Quarterback in Round 1? Listen, you don’t “force” a quarterback pick. If “your guy” is there, you take him. We know the Giants have to identify a quarterback of the future. If the guy they want is Daniel Jones of Duke, Will Grier of West Virginia or Trace McSorley of Penn State and they can wait until Day 2, fine. This team needs a lot more than just a quarterback, so I would remind people to not obsess about that one position.Patrick Morris asks: Gettleman has gotten rid of a lot of Giants from the Jerry Reese era https://www.giantsfanshop.com/hats , who have since found homes with other NFL teams. Adams, Richburg, Apple, Snacks, JPP, Pugh, Thompson, Fluker, etc. Do you think any of these were a bad choice, that if you could, you would have back with the Giants?Ed says: It’s easy to look at some of the let go by the and think “that one, that one and that one were wrong moves.” It’s harder to look at the circumstances surrounding a variety of moves and understand why GM Dave Gettleman and the Giants made the moves they made. I will briefly list thoughts on a few players.Jason Pierre-Paul — I know it’s easy to look at his sack numbers and think the Giants were wrong here. I think the Giants were betting that JPP’s play would fall off significantly before the end of his massive contract, and they got out from under it while they could. In the end I’m guessing they will be right.Weston Richburg — He’s better than anyone else who has played center for the Giants this year, but not $40+ million better. Damon Harrison — This was a little bit like JPP. Terrific player, but I strongly believe that the Giants felt like they were going to move on from ‘Snacks’ in the offseason. With young guys like Dalvin Tomlinson, B.J. Hill and R.J. McIntosh in the middle I think they felt like the draft capital and salary relief made it worth letting the player go.D.J. Fluker — Everybody likes to point to this one because of the struggles of the Giants offensive line. To be honest, I thought they should have kept Fluker. Remember, though New York Giants Hoodie , he played only six games last year. He missed the first couple of games of this season, has played in only eight games and is playing through a knee injury now. Perhaps durability/availability concerns played into it. The Patrick Omameh signing didn’t work out, obviously, but I believe you can understand the thinking here.Free safety — The Giants moved on from Andrew Adams and Darian Thompson. Curtis Riley hasn’t been good, but letting Adams and Thompson go was not a mistake. Adams is a backup for the Buccaneers who has played 87 defensive snaps all year. Thompson has been on the practice squads of the Cardinals and Cowboys. Now on Dallas’s 53-man roster, he has played one defensive snap all year. Neither of those guys was the answer at free safety. The New York Giants are set at tight end, right?That was the question, asked after Dan and I got finished recording our review of the Giants’ win over the Washington Redskins, which ultimately resulted in this podcast. Since our first foray into taking an advance look at the 2019 NFL Draft by talking quarterbacks with Mark Schofield (a podcast which everyone should listen to, and go back and listen to again if you already have. And yes Mark, I FINALLY got Red Dead 2), Dan and I have used our second show every week to talk about college football and the upcoming draft. This week we decided to take a slightly different track. As it stands now, the Giants are set at tight end with Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison. But will they be set at the position by the time the 2019 NFL Draft rolls around?Rhett Ellison will be making nearly $6 million in 2019, and while he is a reliable (though far from scary) receiver, his primary role in the Giants’ offense has been as a blocker. Evan Engram, meanwhile has been used as a glorified safety blanket who has only been productive thanks to his (frankly) insane ability after the catch. Could the Giants decide to make Ellison a cap casualty as they pursue free agents at other positions? And could Dave Gettleman trade Engram because the Giants’ coaching staff can’t seem to figure out how to use a tight end who isn’t an undersized offensive tackle? And if so... Then what? Today we ask those questions.In this podcast we discussThe state of the tight end positionWill Rhett Ellison be a cap casualty? Are the Giants using Evan Engram to his fullest potential? Could the Giants trade Engram? Which tight end prospects might be worth watching if the Giants create a hole for themselves? - Irv Smith Jr. (Alabama)- Noah Fant (Iowa)- T.J.
