Westgate NFL Week 4 Look-Ahead Lines
Forgive me if I believe that the New York “Football” Giants Shumer-slash-G’men-front-office plan for overall sixth selection in the 2019 NFL draft was to break his cherry on the road in this very Week 3 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And to the defense of the Giants head coach and management, it makes perfect sense. New York Giants’ legend Eli Manning is out and Duke rookie Daniel Jones is in. Westgate NFL Week 4 Look-Ahead Lines.
When the Giants selected the Duke quarterback with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 draft I don’t recall my peers oohing and ahhing at our annual NFL “is on the clock” get-together. Jones isn’t a picture-perfect fit as a New York athlete with a Broadway backdrop. with a New York backdrop. But then neither was Eli when he bucked the National Football League draft process and told the world he wasn’t going to play for the team that drafted him. The then-San Diego and now-Los Angeles Chargers.
The truth is that Manning and Jones are very much alike. This applies to their skill set and their football background.
Manning’s on-campus mentor at Mississippi was the David Cutcliffe.
Furthermore, Cutcliffe was the offensive coordinator at Tennessee when Peyton Manning was the Vols starting signal-caller. And Cutcliffe was Eli Manning’s head coach at Mississippi.
Cutcliffe also coached five other quarterbacks who have or are playing in the NFL. Heath Shuler, Erik Ainge, Thaddeus Lewis, and Sean Renfree. The veteran football teacher also was responsible for convincing a quarterback of his, Todd Helton, to make his professional career one in baseball.
Jones, the new starting quarterback for the Giants was coached at Duke by… you guessed it… Cutcliffe.
Giants Run-Heavy vs Bucs
What those in attendance at MetLife Stadium and the Giants faithful around the world witnessed Sunday is what they should expect this weekend in Tampa Bay and moving forward. New York’s first offensive possession saw Eli and the Giants hand the ball off to running back Saquon Barkley and run it right at a good visiting Buffalo Bills defense.
The Giants rushed five straight times for six, 20, 14, eight and finally a 27-yard touchdown gallop by their bruising back Barkley.
The announcement of Jones starting behind center this Sunday in Florida was made just hours ago. The oddsmakers, both in Vegas and Offshore, made little to no adjustments to the point-spread or total after the official words were delivered. Tampa Bay is a touchdown, minus-6 point home favorite, in Sunday’s affair vs Jones and his no-name Giants teammates. By all measures, the closing number minutes before kickoff is most likely to be the same as it was yesterday, today and tomorrow. If the Bucs are more than seven-point home chalk it will be a surprise to this author.
