Mike Glennon fell back in Sunday’s first scrimmage game and, from there, just about everything went downhill for the struggling veteran quarterback and New York Giants.
Chicago linebacker Trevis Gipson slammed into him, releasing the ball. Defensive tackle Bilal Nichols picked it up and returned it 12 yards to 2 before being put out of bounds. David Montgomery ran for a touchdown on the next play.
The Giants were on course for a nasty 29-3 loss, committing four turnovers while losing their fifth straight game. Changes could be in store for New York, with general manager Dave Gettleman possibly sidelined after four lost seasons – whether it’s his choice or not.
There’s still one game to play – the Giants host Washington – and if it’s anything like Sunday, the Giants (4-12) will likely hear it from those in attendance.
If fans are lacking in patience, well, coach Joe Judge gets it.
“The fans have every right to have an opinion,” he said. âThat’s why they’re fans. They have all the rights. You buy a ticket, come to the stadium, you have every right to boo me when you leave the stadium. It’s like that. That’s what we sign up for, isn’t it? And this is New York. It’s supposed to be a tough place to live.
The Giants came to Chicago with an offense ranked among the worst in the NFL and essentially gave the game over to the first two possessions.
After the backpack and landing, things took another bad turn on New York’s second record.
Glennon lined up in the shotgun on the third and -2 in the 45th for the Giants and tried to throw at Kenny Golladay. Chicago’s Artie Burns reached in front of the receiver and deflected the pass, and Tashaun Gipson Sr. brought it in and returned the 31-yard interception on 24. This set up a 4-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Darnell Mooney.
Just like that, the Giants trailed 14-0 en route to a seventh straight road loss.
Glennon, a former Bear, completed just 4 of 11 passes for 24 yards with two interceptions. He was sacked four times for 34 yards and finished with a 5.3 passer rating, the lowest among quarterbacks with more than six passes attempted in a game this season.
The Giants’ only other option for quarterback was Jake Fromm, who suffered badly against Philadelphia last week before Glennon replaced him. Daniel Jones came out with a neck injury that ended the season.
Saquon Barkley was one of the few bright spots for New York in that game, with a 102-yard rush – his record since 2019. It was also his first appearance at Soldier Field since tearing his ACL and the MCL right against the Bears on September 20, 2020..
Nonetheless, the Giants established a low yardage season for the second straight game, finishing with 151 after being held at 192 against Philadelphia.
But as bad as things look, Barkley insisted the team didn’t give up.
“It’s easy to give up, it’s easy to point fingers especially when things aren’t going right, but the fact that these guys in the locker room are keeping their heads up, still believing in each other and fighting each other. for each other – I think it’s amazing, âhe said.
The judge said the Giants are not “a clown show organization,” adding that “the hardest thing to change in a team, the hardest thing to change in a club is the way people think “.
âBut I guarantee you this, these men are going to come in on Wednesday and be ready to roll,â he said. âWe’re going to train hard on Wednesday, we’re going to train hard on Thursday, and we’re going to train hard on Friday. OKAY? And we’re going to play for each other on the pitch next week.
