RUTHERFORD Color Rush Curtis Riley Jersey , N.J. — The New York Giants completed their preseason on Thursday, losing to the New England Patriots 17-12.Giants’
starters on both offense and defense had the night off, leaving the game to
second-team players and guys fighting for some of the final spots on the 53-man
roster. NFL teams have to trim their rosters from the 90-man preseason limit to
53 players by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday.Kyle Lauletta, starting at quarterback with
neither Eli Manning nor Davis Webb playing, completed 8-of-19 passes for 118
yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The touchdown pass was a 41-yard
catch-and-run by wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo. Lauletta played into the third
quarter before giving way to Alex Tanney. Tanney completed 13-of-23 for 92 yards
and one touchdown.Cornerback Donte Deayon, bidding for a roster spot Youth Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , had a pair of first-half interceptions. Deayon was also credited with four passes defensed. Cornerback Chris
Lewis-Harris, also bidding for a roster spot, had six first-half tackles and a
pair of passes defensed.The outcome was sealed when New England quarterback
Danny Etling ran 86 yards for a touchdown with 4:11 remaining, making the score
17-6. That came one play after the Giants turned the ball over on downs at the
Patriots 14-yard line.Moments that matteredNeither safety Curtis Riley nor
cornerback B.W. Webb playing. The logical conclusion from that is that Riley has
earned the free safety job and Webb is the slot corner.Gettleman visits
broadcast booth: Giants general manager Dave Gettleman visited with Bob Papa
ands Carl Banks in the Giants radio booth during the game. What he said really
doesn’t matter. It was just, once again, nice to see the GM at the game as he
continues his fight with lymphoma.Cornerback Donte Deayon likely firmed up his
grasp on a 53-man roster spot with a pair of first-half interceptions of Danny
Etling Color Rush Patrick Omameh Jersey , one a diving effort that short-ciruited a New England scoring opportunity.Injury newsReserve offensive
tackle Nick Becton left the game with an ankle injury. Becton has been bidding
for a spot on the 53-man roster, and the severity of his injury will complicate
the Giants’ decision-making on Saturday.What’s next?The regular season! Well,
technically roster cuts first since teams have to reach the 53-man roster limit
by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday. But, the next time the Giants play in a game it will
for real. The Giants host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Sept. 9 in the
regular-season opener. Game time is 1 p.m.Former Giants come up with a solution
to the Clay Matthews situation It’s getting hard to be a defender in the NFL.
Rule changes designed to promote player safety and protect quarterbacks (and
therefore owners’ bank accounts) have lead to flags that frustrate the living
daylights out of defenders. It all came to a head Sunday as Green Bay Packers’
star edge rusher Clay Matthews got his third roughing the passer penalty in
three games for what looked to everyone who wasn’t the ref like a clean hit.The
previous week he got flagged for this hit: Fortunately for Clay, some former New
York Giants have come to the rescue Color Rush Nate Solder Jersey , namely pass rushing extraordinaire, Osi Umenyiora. Osi’s solution? Just don’t hit (or land on) the quarterback.Note:
Terrell Thomas later corrected himself, saying that Osi made the remarks in
2010, not that he is somehow remembering something from two years in the
future.In his prime, Umenyiora was one of best pass rushers in the NFL, using a
lightning first step and speed around the edge to blow past tackles before they
could do anything about it. He also perfected a chop move to knock the ball out
of quarterbacks’ hands. So there ya go NFL pass rushers — Don’t want to get
flagged? Just do what Osi did.Easy Youth Evan Engram Jersey , right?Or you could do this:
