Per @Doug_Analytics the #Giants win probability dropped 19% after Daniel Jones' first INT, but he also had some of his best throws of the year v DET. He also didn't pull the trigger on throws they need him to.
More good than bad.✅
Here's some of the film in this thread (cont)
Starting the thread w/ the good clips
This was my favorite Daniel Jones play of the game:
Escapes pressure✅
Generates ++velocity completely off platform w/ pure arm talent✅
Changes trajectory to layer over second level's fingertips✅
Ball placement straight up PERFECT✅
The above clip was a 3rd&10; this one is a 3rd&15
I love the growth from Daniel Jones here re: resetting the pocket and finding a new pass lane rather than rolling to his right and cutting off half the field. This keeps the Hodgins dagger route in play and DJ drives it.

After watching the #Giants Week 10 film, I've grown such an appreciation for what Daboll/Kafka did. It had Parcells-ian vibes. They lined up w/ extra offensive linemen and did everything to shout "we're running the ball, we know you know we are, and you can't stop, and (cont)
we know we'll win the physical battle at the LOS." This set up multiple play action pass attempts where the second level defenders cheated up so much that there was WIDE open separation (Slayton crosser X2). For the most part they just ran it and although they could have (cont)
Thrown the football if they wanted to, it was the RIGHT plan to run like that. Why? Because it minimizes the variance. When you throw the football more often, it will always lead to higher variance. The #Giants staff were confident they would win the trenches and they were right.

It's time to talk about Daniel Jones 4-game stretch so here's a thread. Why? It was the best 4-game stretch of his #Giants career on tape (context considered).
On this week's #BigBlueBanter I described DJ as a starting pitcher in full command of his arsenal. Let's start by (cont)
Daniel Jones' 4-game stretch has some INSANE advance stats:
4.1% off-target throw % (best in NFL)
4th-best EPA behind (Mahomes, Allen, Burrow)
Second-most yards per scramble (10.0)
3rd down conversion rate (45.5%) (fourth-best)
1st down per pass attempt rate (38.1%) (third-best)
We'll dive into some film clips shortly, but:
His off-target % on the year (6.9% nice) and 4.1% over the last four (best in NFL) combined w/ his rushing EPA are a big reason for the high conversion rates on 3rd and 1st downs
This is what I mean by a pitcher in full command (cont)

A couple of years ago I published a weekly matchups thread with charts for each game, and this year I'm bringing it back! While I'll normally share on Thursdays, I'm so excited for Week 1 to start that I'm sharing this week's today!

Let's have a great season, everyone! 🏈
Before I start, here's a description of the 3 charts:
1. Comparing OFF vs. DEF key stat rankings
2. Player distribution of 2021/22 DK points
3. Player % of team rushing/receiving expected fpts

In addition to these charts, I'll also include one stat nugget relevant to that game!
#Bills @ #Rams (+2.5)
Game total: 52
BUF implied team total: 27.25
LA implied team total: 24.75
Key stat: Buffalo's defensive pass EPA/play went from -0.112 (2nd) with Tre'Davious White (weeks 1-12) to 0.035 (15th) without him (weeks 13-20). He's out Thursday night.

Incredibly insightful info from the GOAT film analyst Greg Cosell on Inside the Birds about the #Giants re: Daniel Jones, Joe Judge and Brian Daboll
Doing a quick thread w/ key takeaways
1. Joe Judge was even worse than you think. From what Greg heard, JJ wouldn't allow a (cont)
a single mistake to happen. He would freak out for any kind of error. This is a horrific way to coach, obv, but it can also have a debilitating impact on a QB no matter who the QB is. "It was almost as if you weren't allowed to make a mistake."
This more than anything (cont)
Serves as a viable excuse for DJ to me. That's two years of his career listening to/playing under that kind of nasty environment (I still have no clue why JJ was celebrated for winning a few games down the stretch of 2020 against backup/out of league QBs). Dabes will be (cont)

Texts from Bill Belichick to Brian Flores, congratulating Brian for landing the #Giants job.

Belichick thought he was texting Brian Daboll. He was texting Flores by mistake.

Not all teams are trying to win, we knew that, now here's proof.

#Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was upset with Brian Flores for being too successful. Resented him for it.

Probably has something to do with him firing a coach that has been wining the past two seasons in Miami.
Story keeps getting wilder and wilder.

John Mara is speaking now: "I haven't given [fans] any reason to believe"" I'm going to get it right this time around. "We have to earn back the fans' trust." #Giants
John Mara says he wishes the last hiring process "had been more extensive" and that the Giants had "taken more time with it."

Five questions in and no one has asked John Mara about Joe Judge's firing. Strange
John Mara vehemently pushes back against his family as the problem. Says Chris Mara has "no authority," but grants he has personnel input and was part of today's first GM interview.

Full write up out Tuesday am with @TheFFBallers

My concise thoughts here 👇
#Patriots RB James White

R Hip injury similar to that of Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip subluxation). Will have imaging tomorrow to determine severity but I'm expecting White to land on IR
#Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton

Both players exited early with hamstring strains, with Shepard being ruled out immediately. Would plan for both to miss Week 4 with good possibility both players miss more than one week. Expect both to have an MRI tomorrow

Quick thread on what I feel are the most promising developments from #Giants training camp thus far:
1. EDGE Lorenzo Carter: Achilles injuries used to be a career death sentence, but that appears to no longer be the case. Carter looked explosive at minicamp and carried (cont)
it over to training camp. Wasn't expecting a major contribution from him in 2021, now expecting he'll start and play most snaps off EDGE. He was a top-3 breakout candidate for me in Patrick Graham's system that's a cookie-cutter fit for his skill set. Offers best edge bend (cont)
on the roster.
2. Will Hernandez looks a lot better. Maybe it's being removed from COVID (long haul effect for 300+ lb people). Maybe it's the body transformation. Maybe it's the offszn work w/ @BigDuke50 but he's starting to look more like the player we expected out of (cont)

Thank you for caring like you and the rest who know the "Code" do ..
Means Everything to me, It really does.
You know how to keep A low Profile & Not put other people lives in harms way just for attention..
There are some very good people who are Famous that had to always speak
in code to me because they could not risk their careers they worked so hard for. So they did what they could all within "Inside Comms" to help the world be A better place. THIS ALL WAS A #GIANT TEAM EFFORT.

#GIANTS & GODS met in the middle & made peace..

@giantswfan @Schmeelk @LanceMedow I think #Giants should play D. Smith (Eagles "stole" 😀) w/ very physical press coverage. I'm afraid Smith will have durability issue in NFL w/out bulking up. #Giantschat #NYG #NYGiants
Toney > Smith IMO because of versatility (WR, RB, QB, returner). I think Toney's game translates better into NFL. His footwork is game changing in both long AND short game. Smith doesn't have that dimension. Smith more acrobatic but I'll take incredible footwork over that in NFL.
Toney compliments the #Giants better than Smith would. He adds dimensions that Smith would not to team. Other teams will have to account for Toney like they must account for Barkely. That will be too much for Ds to handle giving other Giants playmakers opportunities.
