New York Giants’ Corey Webster & Jason Pierre-Paul Out; Brandon Jacobs Doubtful Vs. Chargers

'Jason Pierre-Paul' photo (c) 2012, Mike Morbeck - license: The New York Giants released their final injury report on Friday, and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul will miss his second straight game due to a lingering shoulder injury. Additionally, despite practicing for the second consecutive week, cornerback Corey Webster (ankle) has also been officially ruled out against the San Diego Chargers.

Meanwhile, running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) was listed as doubtful, meaning how he responds tomorrow will dictate whether or not he even has a remote chance of playing on Sunday. If he boards a cross-country flight to California in the morning, then chances are he'll play. If he doesn't, then, obviously, he'll be inactive yet again.

News wasn't all bad for the Giants, however. Cornerback Trumaine McBride continues to recover from a groin injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday, while tight end Brandon Myers (groin) and cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) are both listed as probable.

Finally, for the San Diego Chargers, they have listed linebacker Jarret Johnson (hand) and wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) as questionable. All of their remaining injured playes have been listed as probable.

    I don’t get how Webster practices on a Friday but then will be listed as out. This is not the first time. I understand if he’s questionable or even doubtful. But out after practicing doesn’t seem right. At this point it’s probably more important to see Hosley so its not a big deal, just strange.

    Since I’ve basically exhausted all my thoughts on the current roster, what positions need upgrading, and even some draft talk, I’ll reluctantly add one more thought. Reluctantly, because I know I’m going to get yelled at.

    I think the biggest revelation I’ve had this season is that Eli just isn’t in the same class as Peyton, Brady, Rodgers and Brees. This should not be seen as an insult to Eli, because it’s not. Those guys are the best of the best, and all 4 could conceivably end up in the Hall of Fame. Eli might end up in the HOF also, but it will be for winning rings and not consistently great play. Eli is closer to Troy Aikman than Brett Favre. And while Aikman has 3 rings and deserves to be in the Hall, he’s not on Favre’s level.

    What I’m trying to say is, Eli is not the same offensive weapon that Brady, Brees, Peyton, and Rodgers are. He gets points for being clutch and performing well in big games, but if you take the last 50 games (regular season and post) the above mentioned 4 play at a consistently higher level than Eli does.

    Again this is not a diss, and please spare me the “so you still think Eli isn’t elite” after his next big game, or even Super Bowl win. Because I know he can do that. And I think I have been posting on here long enough for people to know I am as big an Eli fan as there is. But #10 has been in the NFL long enough now that we know what he is. A franchise QB, possible Hall of Famer, as clutch as they come, but he’s not dominant.

    I bring this up not to diss Eli but more so for what it means to building our future roster. We can no longer be under the illusion that we can just expect Eli to put the team on his back. While he is capable of doing that for stretches, it’s clear he can’t do it consistently. So we need to get back to having a good running game, WR’s that are weapons, and a solid TE like Boss and Ballard were.

    Point is, we need to give Eli a lot more help on his side of the ball. I guess I could have said that without writing 3 paragraphs pointing out Eli’s lack of dominance, but i liked this version better.

    Fire away.

      It’s not his fault though, it’s the offensive line/coordinator/wind/Manningham’s.

      •  James Stoll says:

        It’s a legit observation. I’d even go further and say because of that he’s overpaid at least 5 to 6 mil per year. Now that he is a 10 year vet, we know he’s never going to be any better than he’s been So he question I keep coming back to is what do you do about his contract. He has 2 years left — 16.5; 17M. He’ll be 34 come 2015. Do you re-sign? If yes, at what price?
        Tough question for a very up and down player despite the fact that we all love him.

        •  MentalHockey says:

          You extend him. Offer him a few more years (so it ends when he’s 37-38) with the additional money and then spread those two years of cap hit for 2014 and 2015 into those additional years. Make it so it’s something like 14 mill the next two years and then declines to something in the lines of 12 mil as he hits the twilight of his career.

          (Do the numbers you posted include guarantees and bonus or just base salary? Because I thought his numbers were higher then that. The numbers I posted are based off of yours.)

        •  jfunk says:

          I say you just leave his contract alone at this point. See what next year brings and then decide.

          If we can give Eli the protection he needs to get us into the playoffs, I think you absolutely have to keep giving him chances to be that clutch player in the playoffs until you simply don’t think he has it in him anymore.

          A million “good enough” teams come and go over the years that come up short because they don’t have an Eli Manning to bring it home when it counts. It might be another 10 or 15 years before we find another one once he’s gone.

          Keep retooling the rest of the roster around Eli until you’re absolutely sure that he doesn’t have another run in him.

          •  Nosh.0 says:

            That’s not even an issue. He’s the Giants QB until he decides to hang it up.

            My point is that we can’t go into seasons anymore with issues at other offensive positions with the mindset “oh we got Eli, he can get it done with mediocre talent around him”.

            I think the offense will work best when it gets back to being more balanced.

    Tom Quinn Says Auburn Vs. Alabama Finish Wouldn’t Happen to New York Giants

    But what COULD happen to the Giants is that one of their better seasons in some time could be thrown in the sh|tter because he, the rest of his head-in-asz coaches and the players they’re responsible for have NO IDEA that an onside kick could be coming from a team down two scores with five minutes to play.

    •  MentalHockey says:

      The reason why they have no idea is because our own coaches aren’t inventive enough to think of that. Fewell will promise Coughlin that his “innovative” defense will either get a 3 and out or force a turnover. Then Gilbride, through a mouthful of powder donuts, will inform Coughlin of his brilliance and that he has the perfect play designed for Eli to sit in the pocket for two minutes before hitting Nicks with a eigthy yard fade in the end zone. Coughlin will decide that’s the best option because he’s too effing loyal for his own good.

    The Gilbride offense is lets get to 1st and goal to go thenwe can eiher throw a pick fumble or if we are lucky kick a field goal.
