It will be interesting to see what platform Reid chooses when he takes the field on Sunday. I know you guys are all constantly asking me that question, but we've coached long enough to know that, and there's a lot of teams right now that haven't won all their games, so we're all doing the same things, trying to get ourselves rolling in the right direction. However, conditioning could be an issue since he hasn't played since last season. The usually reliable kicker hadn't missed two attempts in a game in almost five years and has missed just three of 29 field goal attempts in the postseason for his career.

Newton is probably the most multitalented quarterback in the NFL.

Saquon Barkley has led the team in rushing and done almost all of the work out of the backfield, but he has yet to really break out in the form most expect he eventually will. Manning, in particular, has been frightful out of the pocket, rushing seven times for 10 yards, hardly more impressive than his 4.25 sacks per game.

Jonathan Stewart, Carolina's all-time leading rusher, was placed on injured reserve last week by NY. He tried to make a last-second block on the Carolina gunner at the Giants' two-yard line on a second-quarter punt. "Certainly adding him back to the mix will help". He has at least 100 all-purpose yards in all four of the Giants games and is second on the team in receptions with 27. The Giants rank No. 21 in passing yardage at 232.3 per game and No. 27 in rushing at just 82.0 yards per contest, good for 18.3 points overall, which ranks fifth-worst among National Football League teams.
