Poor James Bradberry
Another week with a heart-breaking loss for the New York Giants and more bad Pro Football Focus grades for some of the team’s best players.
Giants’ cornerback James Bradberry has had a great season so far. Well at least until he faced off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and wide receiver Mike Evans. PFF gave Bradberry a grade of 36.1, the worst of any defensive player on the Giants during Monday night’s loss.
The highest grade of any New York defender was Carter Coughlin with a 90.6. Now of course he didn’t play the amount of snaps that a starter does, but he played well. Leonard Williams had the highest defensive grade when it comes to starting players with an 85.7.
On the offensive side of the ball, Giants’ wide receiver Sterling Shepard led the way with a 77.2 and Golden Tate was behind him with a 74.8.
Once again rookie offensive lineman Matt Peart put in a good performance with a 71.0. I think by now Peart has earned himself a starting spot, either at left or right tackle. Andrew Thomas ended up with a grade of 64.3 and Shane Lemieux was given a 34.1. I actually thought the rookie out of Oregon played better than his grade shows.
Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones was given an overall grade of 59.2. His passing grade was a 54.5 and his running grade was a 77. The Bucs did a good job of not allowing him to get out of the pocket and take off down field. Jones had a very good first half, but couldn’t keep up his good play in the second half and threw two bad interceptions. He had plenty of chances to put the game away, but failed to do so.
