The benefit with him is that he is signed for 2022. The bad part is that the Giants are a weird franchise right now and they are playing him 61% of snaps. Despite being 1-4, I don't know that the Giants are looking to get rid of players.

I like Gesicki better, but Rudolph fits as well.
But the giants just put about everyone on IR. So now might be the right time to strike on a player that was likely earmarked to help achieve success this year which is now meaningless. He wasn’t signed to be a long term piece of the giants plan. Getting draft compensation and out from under the contract may be just what they seek at this juncture. This could be a perfect storm.

Has it really been "home" though? Disgraceful amount of tickets sold to opposing fans.
From out of state and from the TV, I agree with this. I am curious when we may see this flip. Good news is that if Seattle is out of it, only the Packers and Rams are likely to be huge crowds crowds in AZ.

That is 100% normal thinking. That said, Giants and Gettleman are weird and don't follow normal thinking.

You sure about the Rams?

At least we got a few weeks of seeing what a good TE can mean to the Cards. We had been waiting a long time.

5. Our defense gives up yards....between the 30 yard lines but only 95 pts. in 5 games. Oh, and 12 of those pts. came on a pick and special teams. That's mean 83 pts. or an average of 16.6 pts per game. WOW!


Waht have you learned?
Yep! I've learned that Vance Joseph just might be a better coach than most amateur commentators (that'd be us, ASFN) think he is!

I know it's frustrating watching team put up a lot of yards and long drives against the Cardinals, but PA (Points Against) is the ultimate metric for defense and Birdgang is 7th best in the league after 5 games, and they played against the 9th, 10th, 15th, (SF - was top ten prior to Cards), 19th, and 27th scoring teams. (By comparison top ranked scoring defense, Buffalo, has played against the 5th, 11th, 26th, 28th, and 31st scoring teams.)

Watching the Cardinals defense this year it is evident that this year's team is comprised of players that plug into the system well. Granted SF had to play their rookie backup QB, but the Cards were without two starting corners, and lost starting ILB Simmons for a good part of the game. Backups are making an impact in every facet of the team, even practice squad call up CB Whittaker made some plays.

Kylar won’t step up into the pocket and is creating sacks and pressure.
Yeah Sunday felt like his rookie season the way he didn’t step up in the pocket. With that said he’s had 4 outstanding games and now one “decent” game. I expect he will learn from it, especially since it’s highly likely other teams are going to try and contain him like that.
