2. Get Jalin Hyatt involved
It was understandable why the Giants offense struggled last Thursday against the 49ers. They’re as about a complete team in the league as it gets. Their defense is stifling and brings a ton of pressure from their pass rush. Throw in the fact that Barkley and Thomas were not in the game and that makes things worse for the Giants offense, with Jones is left scrambling for options.
What wasn’t understandable was the fact that Jalin Hyatt didn’t have a single target come his way against the 49ers. Not one. This was four days after Hyatt was the leading receiver for the Giants in their 31-28 comeback victory against the Arizona Cardinals.
There were several plays where Hyatt was in the game and got open deep down the field, but either Jones missed him, or Jones was under pressure and had to scramble out and throw a dump-off pass, which was rough to see.
Having one of the fastest guys in the league in Hyatt who can turn on the jets and burn people deep should give the Giants more flexibility and creativity as far as what kind of plays to run. We all saw it in the Arizona game with Hyatt going deep and burning their secondary. That should be the game plan going forward against Seattle.
