[url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-b.j.-hill-jersey]Youth B.J. Hill Jersey[/url] , the New York Giants are going to have to rely on Eli Manning and the passing game to put up points.The running game just hasn't been there, and it has nothing to do with No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley missing the last two games with a mild hamstring injury.While the new revamped offensive line has blocked well for Manning, it is not producing many holes for the running backs.In the 22-16 win over the Jets on Friday night, the Manning and the No. 1 offense played the first half. The two-time Super Bowl MVP was 17 of 23 for 188 yards. The rushing attack had nine attempts for 1 yard. Veteran Jonathan Stewart had three carries for minus 7 yards and lost a fumble on a first-and-goal at the Jets 6.The Giants used a lot of two tight end formations in the first half and coach Pat Shurmur said Saturday that the Jets made it tough on the running game putting extra people near the line of scrimmage."Nonetheless, we need to do a better job in all areas, whether it's getting on the right people," Shurmur said. "There weren't really missed assignments, so to speak, but we've just got to get off the double teams a little quicker and then just hit it up in there and give the runner a little bit more room to get his feet going."Left tackle Nate Solder, who has was signed as a free agent, said the Jets have a good run defense."That shouldn't stop us from being at least efficient in the run game," the former Patriot said. "You never want to lose yards in the run game. If you are gaining a few here or there, keeping it mixed up, that's fine. When you are losing yards, no matter what the defense is doing, you are doing something wrong. We have to work at that."One thing that did work was the play-action pass. Manning found Cody Latimer for 54 yards on a play in which the safety bit on a play action, leaving Latimer one on one with the cornerback. If the 37-year-old Manning had led Latimer a little more it would have been a touchdown.Instead, he was tackled at the 6-yard line and Stewart, who has nine carries for minus 5 yards in three games, fumbled on the next play.In the first halves of the past two games [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-saquon-barkley-jersey]Youth Saquon Barkley Jersey[/url] , the running attack has gained 16 yards on 20 carries.It's not the type of production that Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman expected after signing Solder and guard Patrick Omameh as free agents and drafting guard Will Hernandez in the second round. They are joined on the line by Jon Halapio at center and former first-round pick Ereck Flowers at right tackle."We're accustomed to always putting it on our shoulders," Omameh said of the line's approach to the running game. "We'll take the full brunt wherever. At the end of the day, we are always going to put those rushing stats on ourselves."There is a chance the line needs more time to work things out. The group also may benefit from the production of the passing, especially when Odell Beckham Jr. finally plays in a game and Barkley returns to action. Both should happen in the season opener at home against Jacksonville on Sept. 9.The offense also needs to score touchdowns. The first team accounted for three field goals in the half, while special teams scored a touchdown on a punt return and set up a field goal recovering a kickoff at the Jets 16."I thought there were some good things," Manning said. "Obviously, took some shots down the field and hit a bunch of them, missed on a couple, but I thought there was definitely some good things. Obviously, we want to score more when we get into the red zone, get touchdowns down there, but I thought there were a lot of good things and (we) moved the ball pretty well."NOTES: Shurmur had no update on tight end Evan Engram. He sustained a concussion in the second quarter and is in the concussion protocol. ... The blurred eye vision that fellow tight end Rhett Ellison experienced was blamed on a migraine, the coach said. ... Second-year placekicker Aldrick Rosas probably retained his job hitting field goals from 48, 40, 27 and 21 yards, while getting touchbacks on his kickoffs.Elijhaa Penny: 8 things to know about the Giants new fullback Elijhaa Penny, the newest member of the New York Giants, got into town at 7 a.m. Wednesday morning. He took a physical at 10 a.m., participated in a walk-thru at 10:20 and by noon he was looking forward to his first classroom session as he tries to learn his new team’s offense.Here are things to know about the Giants’ new fullback.He thinks he can contribute on Sunday. “If you give me just a small role or anything like that then I’m sure I can gradually go in there, pick up blitzes [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-rhett-ellison-jersey]http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-rhett-ellison-jersey[/url] , things like that. Just give me my protection role and let me read the defense. Or if you need me to pick up a certain blitz or go in there and block the SAM or the MIKE, but as far as getting the whole playbook that’s gonna take some time.”He started his college career at Cerritos College, a community college in Norwalk, Calif.“Even though I had faith that I could do it you always question yourself. ‘Can I really go to the NFL from a community college? Are team really going to give me a chance for just playing two years at a Division I?’ You have all those things in the back of your mind, but I just feel like when you have faith and you have the drive I believe you can achieve anything you want to.”He was a collegiate halfback at Cerritos and at Idaho, and offers some positional flexibility.“(I) bring versatility. My blocking’s pretty good, I can run the ball if I need to and catch the ball out of the backfield. This offseason I lined up at running back, fullback and tight end. I feel like versatility is the reason why I’m here.”Blocking doesn’t seem to bother the 234-pound Penny.“I block just like I run the ball — physical. You’ve gotta be physical when you try to open holes for people. Blocking pretty much came easy. I had a really good running backs coach (Kirby Wilson and Terry Allen) out there in Arizona. I trusted the technique that was given and went out there and performed.”Four questions about Penny with Seth Cox of SB Nation’s Cardinals website, Revenge of the Birds. Ed: What kind of player is he? Looks like he has versatility beyond just being a blocker.Seth: Last year Penny made the roster and made an immediate impact on STs. Later in the season, due to all the RB injuries, he started getting carries and wound up rushing 31 times for 124 yards and a 4.0 average. His best performance came versus Washington where he rushed for 10/45 and his 1st TD.The thing that sticks out about Penny is his rushing style. He is a power RB who hits the hole hard and then lowers his shoulder on contact to initiate the contact rather than absorb it. In his rookie season FS D.J. Swearinger used to complain (in a good way) about having to take on Penny in practice. Bringing Penny down is no easy task. He’s one of those power RBs who gets stronger with each carry.Ed: Why did he get bumped to the practice squad after being on the 53-man roster a season ago?Seth: The Cardinals decided to move him to fullback. He was competing with veteran Derrick Coleman and was unfortunately just a numbers game. Also, let’s not act like the Cardinals have created a good roster or made a ton of great decisions thus far.Ed: Penny will or will not be a nice addition to the Giants backfield?Seth: I think he has good ability as a backup running back, but he’s a very valuable and talented special teams player. I think that’s what he’ll do best first.Ed: Anything you can tell us about what kind of guy he is or anything we should know about him personally?Seth: When Penny, who wasn’t drafted, received his phone call from the Cardinals for a tryout, he wept following the call. His mother assumed that her son had received a contract offer from the Cardinals, thus Penny decided to assure his mom that he had. Following his tryout, it was a triumphant day for him when he was called upstairs and offered a contract and then congratulated by fellow idaho Vandal Mike Iupati.He’s a hard worker, a great teammate and a kid that will endear himself to fans immediately for however long he is there.
