Boomer breaks down Giants preseason opener: 'Some things haven't changed'


The Giants won their preseason opener on Thursday night, edging the Patriots despite Boomer seeing more of the same from Big Blue’s offense in terms of pass protection.

Moving forward, Boomer wants to see the offensive line keep Daniel Jones on his feet to give him a real chance to show what kind of quarterback he can be in the NFL.

But overall, he didn’t think the preseason opener was fantastic nor discouraging.

“It was fine,” Boomer said. “Daniel Jones I thought was a little nervous, but I expect that. Saquon was OK, he wasn’t great.

“There was a play late in the first quarter where Saquon’s replacement was in the backfield and he got steamrolled right into Daniel Jones. It was a blitz by the patriots and it affected Daniel Jones’ throw. So some things haven’t changed. There was also a delayed blitz on a play action pass, and he got hit, so some of those things have to be ironed out.”
