Edge rusher remains very shaky spot for Giants

Published

on

Leading into the July 27 opening of Giants training camp, The Post will analyze 11 position groups based on personnel, strengths, weaknesses and key depth-chart battles. Today’s look-in: Edge rusher.

Overview

From the outside looking in, this has to be considered a shaky spot for the Giants. Where are the proven pass rushers? Not anywhere on the roster, that’s for sure. The best edge rusher in 2020, Kyler Fackrell (four sacks) was not re-signed and is now with the Chargers. Markus Golden (1.5 sacks) never got going with the new Giants coaching staff and was traded to the Cardinals. There are players returning from injury, youngsters who displayed flashes, two interesting rookie draft picks and some low-level free agents worth taking low-risk flyers on. The Giants have 10 players listed on the depth chart at this position, and those 10 players combined for a total of six NFL sacks last season. Not exactly high-octane stuff. The Giants hope the future with these players is more promising than the résumés they’ve already compiled.

Personnel

Lorenzo Carter, Oshane Ximines, Azeez Ojulari, Ifeadi Odenigbo, Elerson Smith, Carter Coughlin, Cam Brown, Ryan Anderson, Niko Lalos, Trent Harris.

Rundown

There are legitimate questions about every player with NFL pedigree. Start with Carter. What is he, exactly? His first two seasons (total of 8.5 sacks) were barely intriguing and never overwhelming in any way, and in 2020 he played in five games (one sack) before going down with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon. Does he make a full recovery? Is he a long-armed, rangy outside defender with sideline-to-sideline capability or just another guy? Ximines did a few good things (4.5 sacks) as a rookie, but his second NFL season was a washout, as he lasted only four games before landing on injured reserve and needing rotator cuff surgery. As a small-school prospect, he needs to prove himself to this new coaching staff. Coughlin and Brown did not get many pass-rush opportunities as rookies. Odenigbo, 27, has 10.5 career sacks, including seven for the Vikings in 2019. Anderson has six career sacks in four years in Washington — none in nine games last season. Ojulari could be the X factor here. He had 9.5 sacks in 10 games at Georgia in 2020, and in some scouting circles, he was considered the best pass rusher in the draft. If there is any semblance of truth to this, the Giants getting him at No. 50 overall is a steal. Smith dominated at a lower level of competition, with 14 sacks, 14 quarterback hits and 21.5 tackles for loss at Northern Iowa in 2019 (his school did not play football last fall) and might be a project that needs time to develop.

Camp combat

It will be hot and heavy all summer. There are starting jobs to be won and roster spots to save and cuts to be avoided. Ojulari will be given every chance to vault into a prominent role. Carter and Ximines must show they are fully healed and ready to compete at a high level, as they could be in danger of getting passed by — remember, the Joe Judge coaching staff inherited them. It feels like a make-or-break sort of year up ahead for Carter, a third-round pick in 2018. More was expected of him than what he has shown.

Position potential

The one possible riser here is Ojulari. He looks the part and, coming from Georgia, should be ready to roll pretty much right away. He faces an acclimation period but probably not an extended one. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham had to be exceedingly creative in 2020 to find ways to apply pressure from the edges and the hope around the team is he does not have to be quite so creative this time around. Given the talent assembled, that is definitely more hope than expectation. If there is a beast in this group he has yet to roar, growl or menace.

Next up: Tight ends.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
