  • So, is Randle in the dog house now?

    I've noticed the Giants are getting Jernigan more involved on offense now along with Hixon and Barden... (Barden not so much though) And since Randle muffed two punts last week it seems he lost his job on returns as well as playing time on offense.

    Thoughts?

    Probably, or maybe the just trust Hixon more handling the ball and running routes for Eli.

          Probably just that Nicks and Hixon are both healthy for the first time in a while. Randle was always a backup this season.

          The way I saw it, you had Nicks as your X receiver, Hixon as your Z, and Cruz as your slot. Then you had Barden as an "understudy" for Nicks, Randle for Hixon, and Jernigan for Cruz.

          On top of that, I've seen a lot of 4 WR sets lately, with 2 slot receivers in. Jernigan lines up opposite Cruz in such situations...

          I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

            I guess so now after the fact he muffed those punts. Had he not he'd likely still have his job.

            I'm kind of asking this question cause of the way Wilson was handled. Is Coughlin doing this to stay consistent with his merits or to show Wilson that he wasn't the only one being made an example of? Either way Randle was definitely seeing more time on the field before the last game against the Saints.

              I re-watched the game a couple of times and noticed they had Jernigan lined up in the slot and Nicks and Cruz on the outside a few times. Makes me wonder that they don't have too much confidence in the other receivers (Hixon, Randle, Barden) getting open enough on the outside.

              But I guess that might be for another thread..lol

                Hixon is the # 3 receiver behind Nicks and Cruz. When those three are playing, the availability for everyone else is greatly reduced. It's probably not a coincidence that Hixon was the punt returner after Randle muffed two punts in the previous game. I'd wait for the snap counts to be posted before making any assumptions.

                  My guess is that since we are sort of entering an early playoff mode with a such tight division race, we are going with the more proven veteran in Hixon vs Randle. I doubt we would of seen as much Wilson at RB against the Saints if Andre Brown wasn't injured.

                  So the way I assume Coughlin sees it...we can afford to have Randle sit on the bench and not cost us with mistakes of inexperience because of our depth at the position while Wilson has to step up now since he is #2nd in terms of playbook knowledge of our RBs.

                        I think it's safe to say Eli has a lot of confidence in Nicks, Cruz, and Hixon if only becasue of their tenure in his offense.

                            I have to question Barden lol Otherwise it's looks about right especially when you factor in Bennett

                              Those muffs could have been a lot worse. He's in for the long haul.
