Giants at Panthers: 5 questions

http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/ … ynn-jersey , answers about Carolina With the New York Giants facing the Carolina Panthers this Sunday, we turned to SB Nation’s Cat Scratch Reader for this week’s “5 questions” segment. Walker Clement of CSR answers our questions.Ed: Mike Shula is now in New York and Norv Turner is Carolina’s offensive coordinator. I see Cam Newton completing a career-high percentage of passes and Christian McCaffrey playing well. How has the Carolina offense changed?Walker: Norv Turner was brought in to run the same offense Shula ran. Cam has basically been in the same system with different coordinators since Rivera got here and that is a system that Rivera stole from Turner when he left San Diego to become Carolina’s head coach. Expect to see a run-first offense with a lot of zone read and options plays. They’ll start there, mix in some short passes to McCaffrey, and then try to hit you deep when your safeties eyes are glued to the offensive backfield.Ed: You’re game-planning FOR THE GIANTS against the Panthers. How do you attack them on offense and defense?Walker: The Panthers are going to be confident that James Bradberry can hold his own in coverage against Odell Beckham, Jr. That’s not to say he won’t get safety help from time to time, but he will have his one on one match-ups and he will probably follow Beckham around the field. Bradberry is a quieter player than Josh Norman, however, so don’t expect a repeat of that 2015 game. With Luke Kuechly keeping everybody up front focused on Saquon Barkley, the edge of the game might fall to Sterling Shepard vs Donte Jackson. He’s a rookie, but he is lightning fast and has great hands. If I were the Panthers, I’d be trying to set up situations where he can lure Manning into some bad decisions and try to force a few turn overs.Ed: Who are some under-the-radar players Giants fans should watch for on Sunday?Walker: The Panthers defense is all well known at this point. Donte Jackson has three picks so far as a rookie. Julius Peppers is timeless until he proves otherwise. Eric Reid is a big question mark for a known player, but definitely not under the radar. Look to our number one corner, James Bradberry, who has a strong record of keeping himself and number one receivers out of the headlines.Their offense is a different story. The names to watch for on third down are Jarius Wright, a free agent acquisition from the Vikings, and Ian Thomas, a fourth-round draft pick. They’ll be the guys the Giants defense will forget about until they convert a third-and-6.Ed: If you could take any player off the Giants roster other than Saquon Barkley or Odell Beckham Jr. and put him in the Panthers lineup who would it be?Walker: Chad Wheeler. The Panthers have played or intended to play Matt Kalil, Daryl Williams, Corey Robinson, Taylor Moton, Chris Clark, Amini Silatolu http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/au … dez-jersey , and Jeremiah Sirles at one or both tackle positions since training camp. Currently, Moton, Clark, Silatolu, and a newly traded for Marshall Newhouse are left standing. A talented, young, and healthy athlete at either end of the offensive line could mean everything for Cam’s already well-paced year.Ed: How has the Carolina fan base reacted to the signing of Eric Reid? What are your personal thoughts?Walker: We actually ran a twitter poll - I know, very scientific - two days before they signed him. Eighty-eight percent of respondents were in favor of signing him. The reactions we have had since have roughly matched those results. A few idiots have threatened to burn their tickets or their first born or whatever, but most people seem to recognize that he represents a major step forward for the Panthers on many levels.Odell Beckham Jr. has fun with Saquon Barkley’s injury That was Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants on Thursday, kiddingly chiding running back Saquon Barkley for straining a hamstring during practice early in the week. Beckham, in case you don’t remember, missed the first four games of the season during his 2014 rookie season because of a hamstring injury.On a serious note, Beckham did have some advice for the exciting rookie.“I told him, just take your time. There’s nothing you need to prove to any of us, there’s nothing you need to prove to anybody. You know what you’re capable of, I know what you’re capable of, we know what you’re capable of, it’s just about getting healthy,” Beckham said.“I remember I think I pulled my hamstring my rookie year, and just having to deal with that, I kind of can give him some insight on what I went through. But at the same time, I still have to step back because it’s his journey and you have to let him make his decisions. But just trying to keep his spirits up http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/au … ins-jersey , he wants to be out there, he’s always been a guy who works hard. Just keeping his mind right, man, he’s going to be good come September 9th and that’s all that really matters now.”Here are a few more takeaways from Beckham’s time with the media on Thursday.On the decision to practice against the Detroit LionsBeckham, without a new contract and still not having played in a game since fracturing his ankle last season, was a full participant in joint practices vs. the Lions.“I just need it, the season is coming up. You need that work, I can’t really shy away from it right now,” he said.“There were some periods where I remember I was going eight plays in a row, or something like that. You kind of build up that wind. And even in practice, I’ve been getting pushed a lot at practice. Asking for reps just because I need it. I need to feel that. I need to feel eight to 10 plays, maybe 15 plays, and just kind of get that back. It’s just very helpful to be able to come out and go against somebody else and compete. Every day that you have the chance to go out on the field, we have a chance to get better right now. So, that’s all I’m focusing on.”The contract questionOf course questions about his contract would come. Beckham, as he did a couple of weeks ago, deflected.“I definitely think it’s going to work itself out. When is it going to happen? You don’t know. That’s the business side that is still new to me in a sense, this is the first time I’ve had to deal with this or go through any of those things. I believe that it’s going to work itself out, it’s just a matter of time. Just like everything in life, it’s timing,” Beckham said. “I’ll let them figure it out. Right now, I just want to be back on the field. It feels good out there to run routes http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/au … win-jersey , to catch passes, to be able to be with those guys, grinding every day. We’re up at seven, we have meetings, this, that, just to be back in the swing of things, I just feel like I’m back in love with what I’ve always loved.”Will he play Friday night?Beckham was evasive about whether he would play against the Lions, or in any of the Giants preseason games.“Coach (Shurmur) and I have a game plan. We usually figure it out and we just go from there. So, we’ll see what it is for this week, and then worry about next week when it comes,” Beckham said. “I’ve been playing football all my life, football is always going to be football. I can go in preseason and get hit a million times and go in a game and get hit once. I can go in preseason and get hit once, you never know, every play in football is a dangerous play. I feel very confident in myself and, like I said, I’ve been playing football all of my life, so it’s always going to be football to me.”
