Giants' Beckham returns to practice
The Giants managed just three points Sunday and quarterback Eli Manning struggled without his top wideout.
The Giants ruled Beckham out for the regular season opener, placing their star wide receiver on the inactive list following a 30-minute workout session during which he tested out his sprained left ankle. He isn't about to overreact to one loss, one poor performance. Much of the scrutiny for the disappointment in Dallas was placed on the offensive line. But how many of them will Beckham play in?
This is seven straight games, dating back to last season, when the Giants couldn't crack 20 points.
But one thing's for sure now: the people who accused Beckham of exaggerating his injury when he dropped to the ground inside the tunnel at FirstEnergy Stadium in front of ESPN's cameras owe him an apology.
"First game", the two-time Super Bowl MVP said. There were a few times when Manning didn't put the ball into the air and give Marshall a chance to make a play. But Marshall wasn't the only Giants receiver that had a bad game.
Roger Lewis, a former undrafted rookie, led the team with 54 receiving yards.
"We're making major strides", Beckham told the New York Post after practice.
Two three-and-outs and a five-play drive to open the game terrible. This is an issue that has been lingering in the preseason, when starter Paul Perkins accumulated 10 yards on six carries against the Cleveland Browns. However, the Giants had plenty of time to make adjustments to the run game, but nothing significant has ever happened. With him on the field, the Giants can beat any team any given week, with Beckham forcing defenses to shade an entire side of the field simply with his presence.
This can not be stressed enough.
One of the unique aspects of NBC's Sunday Night Football is that players introduce themselves, stating their names and colleges so that it can be aired early in the broadcast.
All that matters little if Manning is under constant pressure, as he was against the Cowboys.
There needs to be better protection schemes for Manning to find the time to connect with his receivers.
Then what is? Is the offensive line really that bad? "Hopefully it will get a lot better".
