Welcome back to another episode. Today August 9th was a very big day for the New York Giants. There was two key members of the Giants able to be taken off the PUP (Psychically Unable to Perform) list.
Outside Linebacker Oshane Ximines was finally taken off the PUP List for his shoulder injury that landed him on IR after week 4 vs the LA Rams. Oshane is going into his third season and its going to be put in to a battle to get playing time with at outside linebacker their isn’t a clear cut players at this moment at training camp. if Oshane stays healthy he can actually make his mark on the defense to make noise. I’m pulling for him to finally break out. He has a ton of potential to be something in this league. Will it be this year? We are going to have to hope and pray it does but, it seems like we would be asking a lot out of him to have that be the case. You never know.
The even better news today was running back Saquon Barkley being taken off the PUP list for his knee injury that he suffered in week 2 vs the Bears. We all know the type of person and player He is. He is a freak in every sense of the word. I’m not shocked that he was able to heal up so fast because that’s the type of mentality and healer he actually is. My hope and it seems to be on the same page as the doctors and coaching staff to slowly bring Saquon to becoming full healed and not rush him fully back until its time for him to do so. There was a conversation today in weather people think or expect him to take any snaps in the pre season. I really don’t think it a smart idea. Bc football players only have a x amount of hits in their bodies why rush him back when he can do all his side work outs and hopefully get adjusted at practice and the two join practices the Giants will be having with the Browns and Pats in the next few weeks. I just cant wait to see him return when it’s all said and done and he proves a lot of people wrong.
I wrap up this show by talking about the Giants officially announced which jerseys they will be wearing for the 2021 season. The Giants have very traditional jerseys to begin with. There was three big things about this season. 1st off they are changing up the road uniforms up a tad. instead of the grey pants that they have worn for a while now. They changed the pants to make the jerseys which are white with the same exact stripes. Also they are honoring the the Super Bowl 46 Champs at home vs the Rams and they will be wearing the same Jerseys that they won that Super Bowl in which is the Road jerseys but they are brining back the Grey pants for the only time this season. Last night thing about the Jerseys are that they are able to wear the popular “Color Rush/Throwback” White Jersey with 80/90’s Helmet two times this year and it happens to be back to back weeks in November vs the Bucs and Eagles. Also which I didn’t mention in the pod The Giant pick another game to wear the jerseys again if they really want to bc the limit is three times to wear their alternative jerseys. So if you are into Jerseys as much as I’m it will be something to look foward to this season if they do wear them for the 3rd time in 2021. only time will tell because they have yet to win game in them since bringing them out in 2016.
Hope everyone enjoyed listening I will talk to you guys later in the week to recap Fan Fest and preview Jets-Giants pre season game #1.
