, a spectacular back like No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley, a rebuilt offensive line, a two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback and coach with a reputation for building quality offenses the New York Giants were expected to feature an explosive, high-scoring attack in 2018.At 1-3, averaging just 18.25 points per game and having failed to reach the 20-point mark in all of their losses that has yet to come to fruition.Beckham, without a touchdown catch and averaging a career-worst 10.7 yards per catch, thinks he knows why.“It’s really about finding the balance. I think that might be the answer. We just haven’t found that balance,” Beckham said. “We haven’t found a way to get up and down the field, move it here, move it there, throw it, run it, reverse it, whatever it is. We just haven’t found that balance.”Because I can, that means were taking a break for this:Can the Giants find that balance?We have been discussing all week the things the Giants need to do better in order to find that balance. They include:Making sure they don’t forget to hand the ball to Barkley often enough to make defenses respect the Giants’ running game.Protecting Eli Manning and avoiding costly penalties and negative plays.Getting more big plays, specifically involving Beckham, from the passing game,Brett Favre says Eli Manning needs better OL protectionSaquon Barkley wants to get back to “Giants Football” on offenseLet’s talk about Eli Manning, risk management and the Giants’ offenseValentine’s Views: Whoever you blame, Giants’ struggles land at the feet of the offenseDownfield opportunitiesBeckham gave what amounts to a non-answer as to whether or not he thinks there have been chances to get the ball down the field.“They’re there, they’re not there, it’s just a matter of doing it. There’s only so much – they’re there, they’re not there. I don’t know how to answer that. There’s opportunities, there’s not opportunities. It’s just about taking advantage of the opportunities that are there.The word “frustration” keeps being tosses around“Frustration, I don’t know if that’s the right word. It’s just a matter of when it’s going to click. Like I said, we missed the first quarter of the season, we can’t have it back, but there’s still another three quarters. It’s about making the most of those. At any point in time, you could win seven games in a row
, then you’re sitting at what? 8-3. I always say this, you could’ve won the first eight and lost the first eight. It’s just about when you catch fire. But there does need to be a sense of urgency to play better, do better, execute, win games, but there’s definitely not a panic in my mind, in my body, soul, my heart. I’m not panicking.“I always hear the word frustrated. I’m sorry, it’s funny. Yeah, there is a lot of attention that goes on me, there’s times I’ve been in that red zone and I watch the nickel who’s over me covering me, the linebacker drop out to my side, the safety be over the top. There’s a lot of attention that goes there, so I joked with everybody in here, I was like, you know that I’m coming back off the ankle surgery, I’m thinking maybe I’ll get a chance, you have to prove yourself, and it’s like they just jumped right back into what they were doing last year, doubling up and doing those things. We just have to find ways to get around that.”Eli Manning can handle criticismThe quarterback is under fire as the offense continues to be stuck in neutral, but Beckham isn’t worried about that.“I feel like he’s fully capable of handling whatever comes his way. He’s been doing this for a long time, so I don’t think there’s anything guys could say that is going to bother him.”He’s a Saquon Barkley fanBeckham enjoys what Barkley does so much that he sometimes forgets to do his job while watching the rookie running do Barkley Things with the ball in his hands.“What he can do is unreal. So whenever he gets the ball in his hands, I’m supposed to turn into a blocker but I turn into a spectator. I sit there and I’m watching him because it’s like a mirror image, I’m watching him break tackles and this and that, and I’m like ‘oh I’ve got to pick somebody up on a block.’ We trust fully what he can do and just putting the ball in his hands and letting him make plays. I know it’s early to say it, but in my opinion, he’s going to be one of the best in the league.”Giants at Cowboys, Week 2: First look at Sunday night matchup 0-2.That is the tough-to-climb-out-of pit NFL teams want to avoid falling into. Since 2007
, 91 teams have fallen into it. Only 10 (10.9 percent) have climbed out and reached the playoffs.Both the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys are 0-1 after losing season-opening contests, the Giants to the Jacksonville Jaguars 20-15 and the Cowboys to the Carolina Panthers 16-8.One of them will leave the field after Sunday night’s game in that 0-2 abyss.Giants head coach Pat Shurmur has said often that he believes the Giants are on the right path. He told the team’s official website this week that he’s trying not to stress over having lost in Week 1.“I’ve been involved in a lot of first games of the season,” Shurmur said. “You just move forward. That’s the important thing is you move forward. You learn from the mistakes you made, you build on the things you did well and you just keep moving. That’s the important piece. That may get old as we go through these Mondays with me saying that, but you can win a game and still go through that process. When you lose a game, it hurts more, but you still go through the same process.”There are 30 players on the Giants roster who weren’t part of last season’s disaster, when the team started 0-5 and finished 3-13. They believe this team is different than last season’s, than most Giants teams of recent vintage that went home for the winter when the regular season ended.Wide receiver Sterling Shepard called the game against Jacksonville “really encouraging” despite the loss.“If you look at the game, we were a few plays away from coming out with a different outcome,” he said. “But guys do a good job around here just bouncing back and kind of brushing it off, and fixing the things we need to fix and I feel like that’s what we’ll do this week. Be ready for Dallas.”Odell Beckham Jr. is also spreading the optimistic message.“There was just a lot of moments and opportunities [against Jacksonville] where we had chances and we didn’t connect. Whether it was the first game or whatever it is, we just missed those chances, but they are right there,” Beckham said. “Our plan is for them to be there all year, so instead of seven points it could have been three extra touchdowns. There’s twenty-eight, it’s just a matter of time before everything starts clicking. We came out and put our best foot forward and it’s a good place to start.”The Giants opened the week as 3.5-point underdogs. Follow our Giants-Cowboys Hub Page for continuing coverage all week.The Cowboys are, of course, led on offense by quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. On defense, the big names include linebacker Sean Lee and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence, who had 14.5 sacks in 2017. Dallas comes off a game in which it scored only 8 points and totaled only 232 yards of total offense.The Giants got some potentially good news on Tuesday. Coach Pat Shurmur announced on WFAN radio star linebacker Olivier Vernon, who sat out Week 1 with an ankle injury, is expected to practice on Wednesday.We will have much more coverage throughout the week, including offensive and defensive breakdowns, a look at what to watch on Sunday, and more.By the numbers328 — Beckham (324) needs four receptions to surpass former TE Bob Tucker (327) for 8th all-time in receptions in franchise history.251 — Odell Beckham Jr. needs 251 receiving yards (4,535) over the next two games to surpass Lance Alworth (4,785) for most receiving yards by a player through his first career 50 games.22-28-1 — That’s the Giants record in Sunday night games.49 — That’s how many touchdown passes Eli Manning has thrown against Dallas. His most vs. an NFC East opponent is 51 against the Philadelphia Eagles.4 — That’s how many touchdown passes Manning (339) needs to surpass Fran Tarkenton (342) for sixth-most all-time.
