‘Blue Rush’ Podcast Episode 111: Giants’ Offensive Line is an Absolute Train Wreck

Daniel Jones was just pressured for a 74th time.

The Giants offensive line was nothing short of a train wreck on Monday night. Jones was pressured a career-high 24 times. The Giants QB had no time to throw and not many good receivers to throw to. The result? A 23-16 loss to the Cowboys in front of a rowdy MetLife Stadium on “Monday Night Football.”

The Giants are still 2-1 with the Bears coming to East Rutherford on Sunday, but the offense did not look good. The defense struggled. There was no blocking for the QB. There was no pressure from the defensive front. A lot needs to change if the Giants want to get back to picking up wins.

Lawrence Tynes and I reacted to Big Blue’s loss Monday on a new episode of the “Blue Rush” podcast.

Blue Rush Podcast with Lawrence Tynes & Jake Brown:

  • STERLING SHEPARD: Tough break for a good guy and receiver. Another year he hurts his knee and will miss the remainder of the season. He has had some tough luck his entire Giants career with injuries, especially non-contact ones.
  • OFFENSIVE LINE: They were really bad. Evan Neal should be a good player in the NFL, but he’s off to a horrific start. Andrew Thomas and Jon Feliciano weren’t bad, but the rest of the o-line was getting destroyed by the Cowboys defense. The offensive line has seemed to be a problem for the Giants for a decade now.
  • KENNY GOLLADAY: Will he last this entire season? He can not drop that pass after complaining this week about not getting enough playing time. It has gotten ugly here and Giants fans are already fed up with him.
  • DANIEL JONES: Hard to put much blame on Jones with him not having much time or receivers. David Sills and Richie James are essentially their top receivers with Kadarius Toney not on field, Golladay doing nothing and Shepard out.
  • OUTLOOK: Don’t look too much into one loss. Giants can right the ship and make it 3-1 with a win over the Bears. The Cowboys are just a better team and Cooper Rush deserves credit. The Cowboys have legit playmakers that the Giants do not have. There is a soft part of the schedule that could allow the Giants to win some games, but this is not a playoff team.
