Giants may not be good, but they’re healthy

Good news, Giants. You’re emerging from the bye with no players on the final injury report.

Bad news, Giants. You’re still 1-7.

Yes, the Giants are healthy, even if they’re not very good. So if/when they lose in Santa Clara on Monday night to the 49ers, the Giants won’t be able to blame it on not having everyone available.

The 49ers won’t have three players available: linebacker Reuben Foster (hamstring), receiver Pierre Garcon (knee), and safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) are out. No other players appear on the San Francisco injury report.

This means that quarterback C.J. Beathard is good to go, a week after an injury opened the door for Nick Mullens to start. Mullens played well enough to start again, and coach Kyle Shanahan has said the decision will be made on a week-by-week basis.

  1. They could be bad for a LONG time too, like Buffalo after Jim Kelly, and Phins after Marino.. Manning isn’t the kind of QB that can put the team on his back. They may make the post season occasionally but not as consistent as they were under Coughlin.

  2. You just took away the injury excuse. They are an unbelievable 4 – 21 in their last 25 games. They belong in the same discussion with the Browns.

  3. Still laughing at all the people outraged over Eli’s deserved benching last year…..

    Not mad about Eli’s benching, mad you replaced him with geno Smith who we knew had no future with the team…..put Webb in and McAdoo still might’ve kept his job after the season

    You seem to have some misconceptions about Coughlin. The Giants qualified for the playoffs only 1 time in Coughlin’s last 7 years. Fortunately for him, that coincided with a Manning hot streak and saved his job.

    It’s great for Coughlin and the Giants that they have the 2 Superbowls but they were anything but consistent.

  5. The Bad News for the New-York Giants is that they extremely likely to be a very bad sub .500 team for a long while to. The Giants deciding to go all in on Eli Manning really drastically set that roster back for the next 3-4 years. Shurmur & GM Gettleman have to be seriously regretting letting Mara talk them into rolling with Eli Manning as the starter for a few more years over drafting a young franchise QB in the best/deepest draft of 1st round QB prospects since 2004. I dont know why they agreed to that either because it was obvious last season Manning was done having tremendously declined. Had the Giants of listened to their Heads instead of their hearts & drafted a guy like UCLA QB Josh Rosen or SC QB Sam Darnold they would be in a MUCH better place long term with a far far brighter future. The Giants really hurt themselves when they passed on a QB in favor of Eli Manning because they still BADLY BADLY need to draft a young QB problem is this years draft class but the problem is this years QB Class is very weak with no clear franchise QB & the new next few classes will be QB weak QB drafts. NY could trade back pocking up a few extra picks and then draft a guy like MIZZ QB Drew Lock who needs a lot developing before he will be ready or good. Or at the top of round 2 they could take NC QB Ryan Finley or Northwesterns QB Clayton Thornson. There is a lot of talk about OR QB Justin Herbert but he is almost asuredly returning to school this year so NY will have to wait to 2020 if they want him.
    Herbert is a bit raw to though and is no sure thing with several NFL scouts & GM’s recently saying Herbert isnt a better prospect than any of 2018’s top 3 QB’s Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold as all graded out as much better more polished prospects. Passing on a QB in the last draft really really hurt the Giants being that the Eli gamble did not pay off.
