    I confidently predict that Kadarius Toney will be a bust. The Giants were idiots even for the Caste NFL for taking him in the first round, and my saying that has nothing to do with his allegedly currently having Covid. After a while it gets fairly easy to predict players who will bust. "Tutu" Atwell, taken by the Rams in the second round this year is another obvious one, as was N'Keal Harry or whatever his name is by the Patriots a couple years ago, but those are topics for other team forums not this one.

    Kadarius Toney (COVID-19) is expected to resume practicing Tuesday or Wednesday.
    Toney returned to the team facility on Tuesday after testing positive last week. "We’re not going to do anything with him on the field with the team until we know he’s fully ready to go," coach Joe Judge said. "His timetable will be different, I’m sure, than a lot of the guys (who had COVID) last year that we learned from." Although it sounds like it will be minimal, any missed practice time will be a big deal for an in-progress wideout who still has only 18 games of official experience at the position. Doubting the last Giants first-round wideout in fantasy football did not exactly pay off, but it is difficult to envision Toney making a meaningful re-draft impact as a rookie.

    Kadarious Toney runs the risk of being replaced by his bizarro-world nemesis, Tony Kadarious!

    On a less serious note, the Giants cut fat "prospect" retread Kelvin Benjamin for showing up 17 lbs overweight to walkthroughs this week. Benjamin was signed in the spring at the weight of 264, was asked to come back this month at 251, clocked in at 268 "of muscle gain" by his own admission, and argued with new coach Joe Judge on his way off the practice field.

    Benjamin then claimed Judge cusses too much to ever win a championship. Judge rebutted that he let's it fly a bit sometimes but knows to hold his tongue around your mother, auntie, grandma, sister, and daughter. (this quote seems to have been scrubbed, as it's uncouth) Wait until Joe Judge finds your auntie and your daughter as his assistant coaches - then he'll finally know gender equity!

    This doesn't bode well for the Giants' win total, which will be an unfair indictment of Daniel Jones.

    Garrett’s unimaginative play calling may also hurt Jones. I am sure the knives will be out for Jones this year by the anti-White media.

    I think Rudolph will help out Jones. Hopefully the oline is better this season and they have a running game. They did bring over Golladay to give a decent reciever option for Jones on the outside.

    Just came across this blurb, and of course it's entirely Daniel Jones' fault, has absolutely nothing to do with the receivers, including Golladay who is new to the team:

    New York Giants QB Daniel Jones' performance on Day 3 of training camp was 'brutal,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt. Jones struggled to show any chemistry with this top receivers, especially WR Kenny Golladay. While Rosenblatt acknowledged it is too early in camp to be negative, he wrote, 'There wasn't really anything positive to take away from Jones' performance.'

    Analysis: Yikes. Jones has been a bottom-dweller among the quarterback ADP charts all summer, so this news shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. It also doesn't bode well for gamers who had been hoping he would shrug off last year's disastrous season, either. For now, Jones is a fringe QB2 with arguably as much risk as reward potential.

    They are going to go all in on Daniel Jones this year - just like they did to Trubisky. On a more positive note it seems that Alex Bachman is generating buzz early on in camp.

    Too bad they didn’t keep Connelly around. I feel bad for Daniel Jones. The team around him is lousy - hopefully he continues to improve this season to the point where he is not the scapegoat.

    That's a real shame about Martinez, he'd been an Iron Man up till now in addition to being right up there with the best tackling machines in the league.

    Stinks they got rid of Connelly, Mayo, and Fackrell! Coughlin is an unheralded LB though! Another 4.5 40, White Guy LB that is tackling machine..Coughlin also pretty good as a rusher.

    Amazing how they used to have so many (by today's standards) white defenders and got rid of them so fast.

    If ever there was a time for the Giants to give David Sills some playing time it would be this week. But no, of course not. Sills is one of the more egregious examples of the Caste System in operation in recent years:

    (RotoWire) Johnson could have a significant role this Sunday with both Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Darius Slayton (hamstring) ruled out to face the Saints, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
    Analysis: A few weeks back, Johnson was claimed off waivers by a Giants team with three experienced starters plus a rookie first-round pick at his position. Following a pair of healthy scratches, Johnson was active for Week 3 as the No. 5 receiver, ultimately catching five of seven targets for 51 yards after Shepard and Slayton left early. Johnson even led the team's wideouts with an 84.8-percent snap share in the second half, as No. 1 receiver Kenny Golladay was battling through a hip injury. Of course, Golladay seems healthier this week, and the Giants also have John Ross (hamstring) on track to return from injured reserve. It amounts to an unpredictable situation behind Golladay, with each of Johnson, Kadarius Toney, Ross and C.J. Board in the mix for WR snaps.

    Sills hasn't suffered enough in his already lengthy Racial Apprenticeship. Best players play my pale Irish ass.

    Well this week is possibly even better now that CJ Board broke his arm. Toney also left the game injuried. We’ll see the status of Slayton and Golladay but at the moment, the Giants healthy receivers are Shepard and a couple of bums.
