face the Washington Redskins http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-janoris-jenkins-jersey , or finding another way to spend a fall Sunday afternoon? Here are some things to watch if you are tuned in Sunday.The fans MetLife Stadium holds 82,500 fans. The Giants will likely announce a paid attendance Sunday of better than 75,000. How many fans will actually be filling those seats? How many will be Giants fans? We saw fans with bags over their heads a season ago? Will we see that again? If the Giants fall behind, how long will they stay? Fans were streaming for the exits in the third quarter of the Giants’ 34-13 Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.At 1-6, heading for a second straight disastrous season, and obviously in the middle of preparing for the future, I can’t imagine the Giants will find a friendly, supportive environment on Sunday.Dalvin TomlinsonMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsReplacing ‘Snacks’ in the middleThe game’s best pure run-stuffing nose tackle, Damon Harrison, now plays for the Detroit Lions. No one the Giants play in that spot is going to be quite as dominant against the run as ‘Snacks.’ It would be foolish to make that case. Still, the Giants are pretty well positioned to fill that spot with Harrison gone.Dalvin Tomlinson, a second-year player, is a 317-pounder who specializes in occupying blocks and defending the run. He should be well-suited to playing the nose. Coach Pat Shurmur, in fact, said that Tomlinson is “probably a natural nose guard.”“The thing with Dalvin is, he’s an extremely heavy-handed striker, a guy that can punch and separate, a guy that has the ability to displace blockers Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey , and he’s going to get his great fair share of snaps; but the truth is, there’s going to be a great rotation in that room,” defensive coordinator James Bettcher said on Thursday. “Dalvin will be a huge part of that rotation, as he has been, and some other guys in the room are going to get some shots.”Tomlinson seems fine with the idea of moving inside, saying “as long as I can line up and put my hand in the dirt, I’m happy.”Another young player who figures to get some of the snaps at the nose is rookie B.J. Hill, the impressive third-round pick who has been playing defensive end. The 311-pound Hill is also a natural nose tackle, having spent his college career at N.C. State playing that spot.Six-year veteran John Jenkins, a 327-pound interior defender who has been inactive the past three weeks, could also get an opportunity with Harrison gone.The Redskins are sure to hammer the ball at the Giants and find out if they can defend the run. They are fourth in the league in rushing attempts per game (29.5) and they do have a revitalized Adrian Peterson. So, we should find out quickly how well a front without ‘Snacks’ can hold up.[By the way, if you have a subscription to The Athletic, Geoff Schwartz offered some insight into why Harrison is so good, along with thoughts on Nate Solder’s struggles and the run game. It’s worth your time, You will learn some things.]A division-leading teamAs hard as it might be to believe, the Redskins lead the NFC East at 4-2. At least one team will have something to play for on Sunday.Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsEli ManningLove him or hate him? Think he’s overrated or under-appreciated? A symptom of the problem with the Giants’ offense or THE problem with the Giants offense?Doesn’t matter. You get to watch him Sunday. Enjoy it, because you probably aren’t going to get many more chances to watch the best quarterback in franchise history wear a Giants’ uniform. Oh Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey , and love him or hate him, you will miss him when he’s gone.Something I keep reminding people is there is never a guarantee of an orderly transition when you move on from a franchise guy, even if it’s apparent his time has come. The Giants moved on from Phil Simms after the 1993 season. Manning didn’t show up until 2004, and there was a whole lot of bad quarterback play in-between.As we are finding out with the re-constructed offensive line different does not necessarily end up being better.How will the revamped secondary hold up?Eli Apple is a member of the New Orleans Saints. Tony Lippett is now on the roster in his place. Veteran B.W. Webb will move from the slot to the outside in Apple’s old spot. Rookie undrafted free agents Grant Haley and Sean Chandler, with a grand total of five NFL snaps between them, will man the slot. You wonder if the Giants will begin to work Chandler into the mix more, perhaps even some in place of struggling free safety Curtis Riley. Veteran Michael Thomas has also seen some time in the slot.A quick word about the Apple trade: I know it bothers some fans that the Giants traded away a 23-year-old former first-round pick. Let’s remember, though, that Apple’s tenure with the Giants was a rocky one. Many, myself included, figured the new Giants’ regime would move on from him before the season started. Instead, they gave him a “clean slate” and throughout the spring and summer he appeared to be taking advantage of it. Maybe in the end the Giants just decided that Apple wasn’t part of the long-term solution. One thing we know for sure is that Shurmur likes defensive backs with ball skills. Apple has one interception in 30 career games. Lippett had four in 2016, his only full season with the Miami Dolphins.Odell Beckham Jr. vs. Josh NormanJust because. You know the history between these two. That always makes it worth paying attention when these two guys are on the field against each other. If and when the two are matched up against each other, you can probably expect the Giants to attack Norman. He’s 30 now, has given up completions 77.8 percent of the time when targeted — career high as a starter — and has already tied his career worst by giving up three touchdowns in coverage. The stats tell you he’s probably not the player he was two or three years ago.Oh, those negative plays!This is something we have been harping on here at Big Blue View, and will continue to do so. We can talk about the need for the Giants to make more big plays, which they did successfully against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday. If the Giants are ever going to play consistent offense Youth Sterling Shepard Jersey , though, they have to eliminate the negative plays.The Giants have gone backwards on 78 of 475 potential snaps this season. That’s one every 6.08 snaps, of 16.4 percent. It breaks down like this:Offensive penalties — 27Quarterback sacks — 24Negative runs — 22Negative passes — 5Say what you want about Manning, but the most times he has ever been sacked in a season is 39. The only thing that is going to save him from surpassing that is a benching. At his current pace, Manning will be sacked 55 times. That’s criminal.The other thing that is criminal is being third-worst in the league in negative runs when you are handing the ball to a player as talented as Saquon Barkley.It doesn’t matter who is playing quarterback, running back, wide receiver or calling the plays. Until the Giants can do their jobs well enough to stop going backwards far too often they won’t be a good offense.Will Kyle Lauletta dress?For weeks now there have been calls from the fan base for rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta to play. Lauletta, though, has yet to dress for a game. That figures to change eventually as the Giants prep to get an in-game look at the fourth-round pick from Richmond at some point between now and the end of the season. Could that be this Sunday? The New York Giants will “look at everything” with the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday and their season have spiraled out of control at 1-7, coach Pat Shurmur said Sunday after a 20-13 loss to the Washington Redskins. The Giants traded defensive starters Eli Apple and Damon Harrison for draft choices last week. There has been lots of speculation that veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins could be moved before Tuesday.What else might happen?Eli ManningThe beleaguered 15-year veteran quarterback has a no-trade clause and said Sunday he’s not waiving it.“I want to stay here,” he said simply.Will he stay with the Giants as the starter once the Giants return from their bye week?“I don’t want to go there, I’m not going to tease that,” Shurmur said on Sunday. “I just want to look at everything and see what we have to do moving forward.”Odell Beckham Jr.Before sunday’s game there were reports that the Giants were receiving offers for the superstar wide receiver, even with Beckham being in the first year of a five-year, $90 million contract.After hauling in 8 receptions for 136 yards on Sunday, Beckham was asked if New York was where he wanted to be.“This is where I’m at,” was his response.“I don’t think I am going anywhere. All I want to do is be the very best that I can be when I’m on the field, off the field as well. It’s really hard to think about that Alec Ogletree Jersey , but it is what it is.”Landon CollinsThe Giants have to decide whether the 24-year-old Collins is a building block player worthy of an expensive long-term contract, or whether his best value is as a trade chip who could bring back multiple draft picks that could be used in a rebuilding effort.Collins said “we have to see when we get there” when asked about re-signing with the Giants in the offseason.“I’m just playing it day-by-day. I love the Giants, they love me. You never know, it’s a business, so whatever happens, happens.”Olivier Vernon Playing in his third game since returning from a high ankle sprain, Vernon had three quarterback hits and a fumble recovery, once again showing that he’s an impact player. Will he be a Giant when they face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10?“I’m just going in and working it,” Vernon said. “I just go into the building and work. That’s all I worry about.”Janoris JenkinsThe veteran cornerback is the last of the three corners suspended in 2017 (Apple, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie being the others) still with the Giants. Several teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, are believed to have inquired about Jenkins. He still seems the most likely player on the Giants’ roster to be dealt by the deadline.
