New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur had a lot of explaining to do after Monday’s

23-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.Why did the Giants Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , trailing 23-12 and needing two scores, run back-to-back quarterback sneaks from the Atlanta 1-yard line, burning a full minute off the clock before a 1-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr. with :05 left?“From the 1-yard line there we gotta get it in. We didn’t,” he said. “You should be able to convert on a sneak. We’ve all seen him [Manning] do that. For whatever reason we didn’t get it done.”Why did he go for a two-point conversion when the Giants scored to pull within 20-12 with 4:47 to play, a move that failed when Odell Beckham Jr. couldn’t hold a Manning pass?“We discussed internally the math on that, I felt like we had a good play. I liked our two-point play selections and we just didn’t quite get it done,” he said. “I felt like I wanted to be aggressive for our guys.”Shurmur also had some clarification on his being caught saying something like “throw it to Odell” when Manning failed to do so and misfired on a first-half fourth-and-goal pass intended for Scott Simonson.“Initially I thought Odell had popped open from my view,” Shurmur said. “The coverage was probably a little tighter than what I had seen.”Whether you buy Shurmur’s explanations or not, these are just the kinds of things that go wrong on bad football teams. And the 1-6 Giants, one of three NFL teams with just one victory in seven games, are a bad team.The Giants played hard. They simply didn’t always play well. The reconfigured offensive line couldn’t open holes for Saquon Barkley (14 carries, 43 yards, 3.1 yards per attempt) Womens Janoris Jenkins Jersey , and couldn’t pass block much of the night as Manning was sacked four times. The defense got three sacks, but surrendered a 47-yard touchdown pass and a 30-yard scoring run.Shurmur tried some things. There were some jet sweeps, including one to Barkley that failed on the Atlanta 1-yard line. He ran a reverse to tight end Evan Engram. The Giants tried to take shots, and hit some late in the game. The Giants failed on a fourth-and-goal.This is just what happens to bad teams. Seemingly no matter what they try it doesn’t turn our right. Then, the only thing that’s left is to try and explain where it all went wrong.Bottom line, that’s where the Giants are right now.Report: CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie signing with Oakland Raiders Former New York Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has signed with the Oakland Raiders, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.Rodgers-Cromartie signed a five-year, $35 million contact with the Giants in the spring of 2014. With the Giants, he played outside corner, slot corner, and safety, and he played well — even when the rest of the defense didn’t. With the arrival of the new regime in 2018, the Giants elected to move Rodgers-Cromartie from his reserve cornerback role to free safety Womens Landon Collins Jersey , a move he embraced. However, DRC was released by the team in March after refusing to take a pay cut following his move. After parting ways with both Rodgers-Cromartie and Ross Cockrell, the Giants’ depth at the position became worrisome, and even more so after the season-ending injury to Sam Beal. With few proven options behind the Giants starters, fans began to wonder if the Giants might re-sign DRC. That ship officially sailed Wednesday. As it stands now, the Giants are looking at a platoon of William Gay, B.W. Webb, Leonard Johnson, Grant Haley, and Donte Deayon behind Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple.
