Give Saquon Barkley The Fucking Ball

The Giants are down 10-28 and marching down the field in the third quarter. They start the drive on their own 25-yard line and storm all the way to the Cowboys 8-yard line. It’s 3rd and 2 andddd the Giants hand the ball off to the fullback for a 1-yard gain.

Ok.

So 4th and 1. A field goal is unacceptable knowing damn well that defense is making Dak Prescott look like Brett Favre out there just doing whatever the hell he wants. You need a touchdown but FIRST, you need ONE yard.

This is the play you run:

What are we doing here?

Saquon Barkley is the best running back in the NFL and he proved in Week 1 rushing for 120 yards on only 11 carries.

So why the fuck is he only getting 11 carries? 3rd and 2. 4th and 1.

Why are you not handing the ball off to Barkley? In what world does it make sense to bootleg Eli Manning out of the pocket? Of course he was sacked and fumbled the ball. Eli has been playing since the Great Depression. Why is he running out of the pocket?

Here’s what head coach Pat Shurmur had to say about his playcalling:

“No,” he said when asked if he had second thoughts. “We should gain more yards on the one to Penny and then we’ve got to do something with the ball we roll out.”

“Games play out differently,” Shurmur said. “ I think he had really good production when he touched the ball.”

Why is he talking about Barkley as if he isn’t the one making the game plan? He had really good production when he touched the ball? SO THEN GIVE HIM THE FUCKING BALL.

I’m sick.

Saquon only had 9 more carries than Eliijhaa Penny, the fullback who was stopped on 3rd and 2.

Eli Manning might be the worst starting quarterback in the NFL and the Giants called for him to roll out of the pocket and look into the endzone on 4th and 1 instead of turning around and handing the ball to Saquon.

The coaching staff is supposed to get the most out of the talent on their roster and instead, the better quarterback sits on the sidelines with Saquon Barkley as they watch Eli and the fucking fullback literally incapable of advancing the ball two yards.

Fire Pat Shurmur. Cut Eli Manning. And give Saquon Barkley the fucking ball.
