New York Giants second preseason game in the books [url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-patrick-omameh-jersey]http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-patrick-omameh-jersey[/url] , we might start to see trends emerging in how players are used by the Giants’ coaching staff. Which players play, when, and how much they play, could give us some glimpse in to the Giants’ thought processes as they go about building the team.Offensive snap countsSnap count leadersGetting the start and continuing to play after the night was over for the starting team offensive line, Davis Webb lead the way for the Giants with 33 offensive snaps (56%). It’s interesting that Webb stayed on the field for seven more plays than the starting offensive line (26 snaps for each of Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio, Patrick Omameh, and Ereck Flowers). Wide ReceiversAmong the wide receivers, Hunter Sharp lead the way with 26 snaps (44%), followed by Russell Shepard and Sterling Shepard who each tallied 21 snaps (36%). Cody Latimer got the start opposite Sterling Shepard and managed to flash a few times in his 19 plays (32%). Roger Lewis Jr. and Amba Etta-Tawo appear to potentially be making pushes for roster spots, netting 17 snaps (29%) apiece. Etta-Tawo has flashed in practices, showing soft hands and good route running to earn the praise coaches and the media alike. Meanwhile, Lewis Jr. had been buried on the Giants’ depth chart throughout the spring and summer. That he played the same amount of snaps as Etta-Tawo might suggest that perhaps he has started to show the coaches reason to play him more. Running Backs Jonathan Stewart got the start, but only played 11 snaps (19%), carrying the ball four times, losing a yard. Wayne Gallman played almost twice as much, on the field for 20 snaps (34%). He was also much more effective, picking up 26 yards and a touchdown on five carries, as well as picking up another two receptions for 9 yards and a touchdown.UDFA Robert Martin was the Giants’ leading rusher, with 47 yards and a touchdown in 7 carries on 14 snaps (24%).Tight EndsThe Giants once again opened the game in a two tight end set, with Evan Engram (20 snaps [url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-aldrick-rosas-jersey]Aldrick Rosas Jersey[/url] , 34%) and Rhett Ellison (16 snaps, 27%) as the starters. They also mixed third tight end Jerell Adams in with the starting unit, both in “13” personnel and in their “12” personnel package. Adams also played with the second team, earning 22 snaps (37%) on the game — the second most snaps of any skill position player besides Hunter Sharp.DefenseDefensive FrontThe starting defensive line did not play much against the Lions, with B.J. Hill playing just 11 snaps (14%), while Dalvin Tomlinson and Damon Harrison played 13 snaps (17%). Behind them, Olivier Vernon, Alec Ogletree, B.J. Goodson, and Kareem Martin all played just 17 snaps (22%).Meanwhile, defensive tackles A.J. Francis and Robert Thomas each played 20 snaps (26%). Thomas remains solid with flashes of potential pushing the pocket, while Francis looks both powerful and impressively agile for a 340 pound defensive tackle.Preseason phenom Kerry Wynn only played 12 snaps (16%), presumably to give the Lions a sporting chance of evaluating their own offense. The second team linebacker tandem of Mark Herzlich and Ray-Ray Armstrong played 45 and 35 snaps, respectively. There were questions about the Giants’ depth at linebacker, but Herzlich and Armstrong have played well together, with Armstrong’s range complementing Herzlich’s physicality. Rookie Lorenzo Carter played 29 snaps (38%), once again flashing with his athleticism. Defensive BacksUDFA corner Grant Haley not only lead the secondary and the defense in snaps by a wide margin, but the team as a whole. He was on the field for 60 snaps, or 78% of the defense’s total. He had his ups and downs, but did finish on a high note by denying the Lions a touchdown reception. The Giants’ coaches clearly wanted to get a good look at Haley in a variety of situations.Much like the starting linebacking corps, Eli Apple, Janoris Jenkins [url=http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-patrick-omameh-jersey]Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey[/url] , and Landon Collins all played 17 snaps. Starting free safety Curtis Riley played a few more, getting 22 snaps (29%) before his night was over. He played roughly the same amount as fellow safety Andrew Adams and corner B.W. Webb (23 snaps apiece). All three seem to be in the mix in a secondary that is lacking definition beyond Jenkins, Apple, and Collins.Giants news, 9/26: Pat Shurmur’s flexibility, Eli’s weapons, Ereck Flowers, more Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let’s check the headlines as the Giants prepare for Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium vs. the New Orleans Saints.Pat Shurmur earned his game ball because of his willingness to change, not just NFL etiquette | NewsdayOne of the things Pat Shurmur brought to the Giants was flexibility. He didn’t simply bring a scheme and a way of doing things, and make everyone else adapt to it. That was part of the downfall of Ben McAdoo. Shurmur, though, is different. Newsday’s Tom Rock writes:The Giants appeased Ereck Flowers until they failed him | NY PostPaul Schwartz tells us that while former first-round pick Ereck Flowers bears much of the responsibility for not living up to his draft status, the Giants also share some of the blame. In my view, he has a good point. Schwartz writes:Pat Shurmur on QB sack rule: 'Anatomically, this is getting difficult' | NewsdayThe Giants have yet to be impacted by the league’s new overzealousness to protect quarterbacks. They will be at some point, though, and Shurmur understands the difficult situation defenders are being placed in. A hard, clean tackle is seemingly no longer wanted in football — at least not when it is made on a quarterback.With Saquon Barkley, Giants’ Eli Manning has ‘better group than I ever threw with,’ says Phil Simms | NJ.comFormer Giants quarterback Phil Simms on Tuesday supported the Giants’ decision to draft Saquon Barkley and said the play-makers art Eli Manning’s disposal is better than any group he ever played with.CB Patrick Robinson of New Orleans Saints headed to injured reserve with broken ankle | ESPNWhat Eli Manning must do to beat Brees in battle of vet QBs | NY PostSaints vs. Giants Betting Preview: Why Giants Can Exploit Saints' Struggling Pass Defense | Sports Illustrated
