Giants avoid another brawl on poor day for Daniel Jones and the offense
Observations from Giants practice on Friday.
The Giants avoided another brawl and Joe Judge-ordered punitive laps and push-ups. When fiery safety Madre Harper threw receiver C.J. Board to the ground, the two jawed back and forth, but cooler heads prevailed before it escalated. Message received.
Picking Them Clean
Daniel Jones was intercepted twice, and backup QBs Mike Glennon and Clayton Thorson were picked off once each. All four came during 11-on-11 periods, in an overall poor day by the offense. The offensive line also was plagued by penalties in the team periods.
Caught My Eye
The Giants are using a three-man rotation at tackle — similar to last season during regular-season games — as a way to manage the reps for Andrew Thomas after offseason ankle surgery. Nate Solder and Matt Peart both have had reps at left and right tackle.
DL Ifeadi Odenigbo, DL Raymond Johnson and RB Gary Brightwell all left practice under the watch of trainers. The continued extended absences are most obvious at wide receiver (Dante Pettis, Austin Mack, Kenny Golladay) and outside linebacker (Lorenzo Carter, Oshane Ximines, Elerson Smith and Ryan Anderson).
