Giants news Womens Corey Ballentine Jersey , 8/22: Mark Herzlich — “spirit” of helmet rule is correct In the second quarter of Friday’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions, the New York Giants felt the impact of the new helmet rule for the first time. Linebacker Mark Herzlich received a highly questionable 15-yard penalty for “lowering his helmet to initiate contact,” negating a sack of Matt Cassel by Lorenzo Carter.On replay, running back Theo Riddick of the Lions appeared to initiate the contact — in fact, seeming to launch himself into Herzlich.Coach Pat Shurmur wasn’t happy, saying “I have a very strong opinion of that play,” and adding that the Giants would send it to the league for clarification.The rule, via SB Nation’s ‘Rise ‘n Grind’ newsletter:The new rule: It is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent. Contact does not have to be to an opponent’s head or neck area – lowering the head and initiating contact to an opponent’s torso, hips, and lower body White Lawrence Taylor Jerseys , is also a foul. This rule applies anywhere on the field at any time.鈥婸enalties for Violation: Loss of 15 yards. If the foul is by the defense, it is also an automatic first down. The player may also be ejected.The rule has led to a rash of highly-questionable penalties being called across the league during preseason games.Tuesday, Herzlich spoke about the rule.“To me, at the end of the day, the spirit and the purpose of this rule is right. We want our players to be safe, we don’t want to be – we want to take the head out of the game,” Herzlich said. “You see in preseason a lot of times when you get certain holding calls on punt return emphasized, it’s called a replay. This could be a situation where they are overcalling it right now so you get used to it, but as players, we do have to know that they are out there.”The veteran linebacker was asked if the helmet penalty should be reviewable.“I’m not exactly sure what is going to make it work correctly. If it’s easier for the refs to see it as a reviewable play Authentic Corey Ballentine Jersey , that’s one thing. If it’s the type of rule where they’ve got to see it fast motion, that’s kind of how it goes,” he said. “But that becomes two very different penalties where you can stop and take a replay of a flag like that. That would be very different than a bang-bang play.”Shurmur: “We’ll see” if Odell Beckham will play FridayThe Giants coach wasn’t biting on Tuesday when asked if Beckham, who has yet to play a preseason snap, would be in the lineup Friday against the New York Jets.“We’ll see,” Shurmur said. “鈥ou knew I was going to give you a real short answer on that one.”Is Beckham physically ready to play in a game?“He’s doing really well in practice here, so we’ll see where he’s at,” said Shurmur. “Again, coming back from injury, so we’ll try to be smart with him.”Saquon Barkley “training really well”Shurmur didn’t give a whole lot more detail when it came to the team’s first-round pick in the draft Lawrence Taylor Jerseys 2019 , who is working his way back from a hamstring injury.“Coming back. As we all know, he tweaked his hamstring, and he’s training really well and doing more and more each day,” Shurmur said. “We like the path he’s on. 鈥?We’ll see how it plays out.”Around the Inter-GoogleGiants' Ereck Flowers fires back at Ben McAdoo's criticism of himGiants right tackle Ereck Flowers pushed back not only against criticism from former head coach Ben McAdoo, but the fact that he didn't deliver it face-to-face.Odell Beckham dazzles again but Giants coach stays cautiousOdell Beckham looks ready for action.

Like it or not, there is your QB of the future"Photo by Jason Kempin/Getty ImagesAfter two offseasons of speculation, the New York Giants have chosen their heir apparent for Eli Manning. The Giants Thursday selected quarterback Daniel Jones of Duke with their first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.Jones has long been considered a potential target for the Giants White Carl Banks Jerseys , though until recently few believed the Giants would select him this early in the draft. As has been well-documented, Jones was coached at duke by David Cutcliffe, who was the quarterbacks coach for both eli and Peyton Manning. Jones’ private quarterbacks coach, David Morris, was Eli Manning’s collegiate backup and roommate at Ole Miss. Jones has also attended the Manning Passing Academy a number of times.Manning, 38, is entering his 16th season with the Giants. GM Dave Gettleman has spoken often of a desire to get a young quarterback “to learn at the feet of Eli” before potentially taking over the job. With the selection of Jones, Gettleman has put that plan into motion.In his breakdown of Jones, our Mark Schofield called him “yet another polarizing player in this quarterback class, where the outside media and the NFL insiders seem to have differing opinions on how to grade this player.”As Schofield indicated Carl Banks Jerseys 2019 , the outside media was not kind to Jones in the pre-draft buildup. NFL insiders, though, have rated him much more highly. Long-time personnel man Gil Brandt had Jones as his ninth-ranked prospect and recently had this to say: On Sirius XM NFL Radio Thursday night, Brandt added this:NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein exemplifies the opposite view:Schofield’s summary goes like this: Instant reactionSB Nation’s Bill Connelly panned the pick:Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network said:Giants draft picks The selection of Jones is one of two the Giants have in the first round of the draft.
