New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur had a lot of explaining to do after
Monday’s 23-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.Why did the Giants http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-au...meh-jersey , trailing 23-12 and needing two scores, run back-to-back quarterback sneaks from the Atlanta 1-yard line, burning a full minute off the clock before a 1-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr. with :05 left?“From the 1-yard line there we gotta get it in. We didn’t,” he said. “You should be able to convert on a sneak. We’ve all seen him [Manning] do that. For whatever reason we didn’t get it done.”Why did he go for a two-point conversion when the Giants scored to pull within 20-12 with 4:47 to play, a move that failed when Odell Beckham Jr. couldn’t hold a Manning pass?“We discussed internally the math on that, I felt like we had a good play. I liked our two-point play selections and we just didn’t quite get it done,” he said. “I felt like I wanted to be aggressive for our guys.”Shurmur also had some clarification on his being caught saying something like “throw it to Odell” when Manning failed to do so and misfired on a first-half fourth-and-goal pass intended for Scott Simonson.“Initially I thought Odell had popped open from my view,” Shurmur said. “The coverage was probably a little tighter than what I had seen.”Whether you buy Shurmur’s explanations or not, these are just the kinds of things that go wrong on bad football teams. And the 1-6 Giants, one of three NFL teams with just one victory in seven games, are a bad team.The Giants played hard. They simply didn’t always play well. The reconfigured offensive line couldn’t open holes for Saquon Barkley (14 carries, 43 yards, 3.1 yards per attempt) Aldrick Rosas Jersey , and couldn’t pass block much of the night as Manning was sacked four times. The defense got three sacks, but surrendered a 47-yard touchdown pass and a 30-yard scoring run.Shurmur tried some things. There were some jet sweeps, including one to Barkley that failed on the Atlanta 1-yard line. He ran a reverse to tight end Evan Engram. The Giants tried to take shots, and hit some late in the game. The Giants failed on a fourth-and-goal.This is just what happens to bad teams. Seemingly no matter what they try it doesn’t turn our right. Then, the only thing that’s left is to try and explain where it all went wrong.Bottom line, that’s where the Giants are right now. Placekicker Aldrick Rosas popped up on the New York Giants’ injury report on Monday with a right quad issue. Coach Pat Shurmur admitted that the Giants will likely need to make a roster move to protect themselves in case Rosas can’t kick Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.“We probably will make a roster move to bring somebody on the practice squad just in case,” Shurmur said. “We’re hopeful that he’ll be back, but I think it’s worthy of talking about.” Rosas, in his second season, has gone 11-of-11 on field-goal attempts this season after making only 18-of-25 as a rookie. He made three kicks on Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers, including a career-long 53-yarder.Here are more takeaways from Shurmur’s time with the media on Monday.On his team’s state of mind at 1-4“I love my team. I love our team. I think our guys are competitive, they fight, and I think our improvement was on display yesterday. There’s no moral victories Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey , so we’ve got to improve this much more. We’ve got to improve 63 yards more and get that victory. That’s what it is. I watched a bunch of guys battle from the first play to the last, I watched a bunch of guys make more plays on both sides of the ball, I watched when we didn’t make it on fourth down our defense go in and stop them, I watched a couple of turnovers on their part, I watched the offense score points, I watched contributions in good ways, but not to the point where we won the game. So, we just keep trying to get in this case, 63 yards better.”Winning the division still the goal“The key is to win your division and then give yourselves a chance to compete, and then go on from there. That’s what we’re battling for. That’s why I think we as coaches and players understand that there’s – I think the question was asked last week – there’s no panic, it’s urgency to win every week, and that’s what we’re fighting to do. Along the way, every team goes through stuff. We’re in it Aldrick Rosas Jersey , so we’ve just got to go win a game.”On the increased number of downfield throws“They played us differently. I would say I probably made as many calls to get the ball downfield the week before but we faced different coverage. I thought Eli (Manning) did a good job of getting the ball down the field, our guys did a good job of executing and catching it. Forget the downfield throws. We scored 31 points, that’s the message. So whether you walk it across, you crawl it across, you roll it across, you throw it across – give me something else – you swim it across, it doesn’t matter. Getting it across the end zone is what matters, and that’s important.”On who becomes the swing tackle with Ereck Flowers goneThe Giants said Monday that they will cut Flowers on Tuesday if they are unable to trade him.“We’ll have to make a move and we’ll figure that out, but we’ve got guys in there that have played tackle. We’ve got Spencer (Pulley) obviously that’s played tackle, we’ve also got (John) Greco who’s played a little bit of tackle, so we’ll just move guys around,” Shurmur said. “That’s the way it works.”[E-mail Ed at bigblueview@gmail.com or via the Big Blue View Contact Page | Follow Big Blue View on Twitter | ‘Like’ Big Blue View on Facebook | Follow Big Blue View on Instagram]
