In this clip from ‘Giant Mess’, Giants fan Neal Lynch talks about…

The Giants’ preseason opener vs the Jets

The QB controversy brewing between Eli Manning and Daniel Jones

“Giants fans booing the offense after that quick three-and-out.”

“My big concern with Eli isn’t that he can’t make all the throws. It’s that he may not be willing to make all the throws. Whether he’s shell shocked from yrs with no O line or he has doubts about his own ability, he no longer slings it like he once did. He needs to get that back.”

Daniel Jones went 5 of 5 for 67 yards, one TD pass even though the Giants receivers averaged just 1.4 yards of separation..

Meanwhile, Dwayne Haskins has two INTs during his NFL debut.

Alex Tanney and Kyle Lauletta might be trade bait

TJ Jones and Russell Shepard stand out, plus Cody Latimer progressing?

Paul Perkins struggles

BJ Goodson demoted to 3rd string. His first snaps came at the start of the third quarter. Ryan Connelly had himself a ball game.

Jake Carlock’s interception return for a touchdown, does he deserve a roster spot?

First-round pick DeAndre Baker did not tear his ACL after extensive testing, it’s just a knee sprain. This opens up opportunity for Corey Ballentine

Giants ranked 5th for under-25 talent — a third of the Giants’ 90-man roster is under the age of 25, and 17 players (more than half) have a very good chance to be on the Giants’ 53-man roster. Only eight of the Giants’ 29 players under 25 have taken a snap in the NFL.

Dexter Lawrence rooming with Daniel Jones helping him “keep his mind straight”. “I knew when I played him in college he was really good. In the first half, he was killing us on the field, up and down the field, but they just couldn’t score. I knew his talent when they drafted him. I said, ‘okay, he deserves to be there.’

Under-the-radar rookies to keep an eye on during the preseason
Julian Love & Oshane Ximines

Alec Ogletree changing his number from 52 to 47 — Ogletree made a deal with Schurmur that if he had 5 interceptions he’d get to line up as a TE for a play? #47 is an eligible number for a TE.
