at the upcoming game for the New York Giants those focus largely on numbers. The only number that really matters for the Giants as they prepare to head south for a Monday Night Football game against the Atlanta Falcons is that 1-5 record.Whatever side you’ve chosen in all the Eli Manning-Odell Beckham Jr.-John Mara drama that has been unfolding Rhett Ellison Jersey , the source of all of that drama is the 1-5 record.Mara says he is “embarrassed” at being 1-5. Coach Pat Shurmur says he is “disappointed.” Fans are mostly hopeless, with only 9 percent showing confidence in the team’s direction in our most recent Fanpulse survey.“I think we need to play better, I think we need to coach better, and we’re certainly not happy with the record. I feel like when you’re close in games, you look back on plays here and plays there, and close isn’t enough. We’ve got to try to find a way to get it over the top.”It’s tough to remember with the taste of last Thursday’s 34-13 whipping by the Philadelphia Eagles still fresh, but the Giants have indeed been “close in games” several times in their five losses. Close enough to have perhaps won three of them, to perhaps be sitting at 3-3 or 4-2 at this point without all the drams having unfolded.Week 1 — The Giants lose 20-15 at home to a Jacksonville Jaguars team that, as the season has unfolded, was more vulnerable than last season’s AFC Championship Game appearancemight have indicated. The defense gave up just 13 points. Awful offensive line play that culminated in breakdowns leading to a fourth-quarter Pick 6 by Myles Jack doomed the Giants here.Week 2 — A 20-13 loss on the road to the Dallas Cowboys. This one “should” have been winnable, but the Giants were never really competitive. They trailed 10-0 at the half, 13-0 before getting a field goal and 20-3 before tacking on a couple of stat-enhancing late scores.Week 5 — What do you say when you crack the 30-point mark for the first time in three seasons and still manage to lose on a 63-yard game-ending field goal?That’s three “coulda/woulda/shoulda” games for the Giants already this season. While that’s not really a productive game to play, good teams find ways to win those, and right now the Giants just aren’t a good team. Can they become one? At least one that provides optimism heading into 2019?We have 10 games to find out.Giants-Falcons by the numbers432 and 401 — The Giants gained 432 vs. Carolina and 401 yards vs. Philadelphia, their first consecutive 400-yard games since Sept. 18 and 25, 2016, when they totaled 417 yards vs. New Orleans and 457 yards against Washington.

Here are some headlines to get your Tuesday started.Kerry Wynn making things happenDefensive end Kerry Wynn had one of the best games of his career on Sunday with 5 tackles, a pass defensed and a critical forced fumble that led to a turnover.“I try to make sure I’m always around the ball. When you’re around the ball, good things tend to happen,” Wynn said.” Just running around and trying to make stuff happen. I’m having fun with the defense. I love it so far.”“Comparison is a waste of time”That was Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder when he was asked on Monday to compare rookie running back Saquon Barkley to other players he has been around.“I think Saquon’s just unique and a very talented guy and obviously a great teammate and so to have guys like that to make up for a lot of the things we might screw up and make big plays regardless of that, despite that,” Solder said. “If we can continue to solidify what we’re doing, get better at what we’re doing and just be a more cohesive unit, I think that will really help us in the future.”Solder: Line still has to improveAsked about the play of veteran center John Greco in Sunday’s game, Solder spoke about the offensive line as a whole.“We have a lot to work on and I think he [Greco] did an excellent job. I thought that his communication was very clear and he understands the offense as well as anybody, so to get that communicated across the board, but we weren’t perfect and we need to be a lot better and that’s not John, that’s all of us and we can’t make excuses because it was loud or because we did something different or whatever, we have to continue to work hard to be as efficient as possible,” Solder said.Around the Inter-GoogleEli Manning on Giants' First Win: 'I'm Proud Of The Team' | WFAN Sports Radio 66AM 101.9FMEli Manning and the Giants offense came alive in Week 3 Cheap B.J.
