Giants changing their Kadarius Toney plan after slow start

Published

on

In New York, the Tony Awards just finished but the Toney Era is just beginning.

The hamstring injuries suffered on Sunday by starting receivers Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton could be the push that forces the Giants into showing more trust in rookie Kadarius Toney. The first-round pick has four catches for 14 yards through three games.

“To say someone is going to just jump in and just replicate completely what we do with those two guys, I don’t think that’s something we’re going to look to do,” coach Joe Judge said. “It’s going to be more about playing to his strengths, giving him the opportunity to get the ball in his hands and make some plays.”

Trained eyes should notice that is a different tune than Judge usually sings. No discounting the idea of predetermined targets. No warning on the risks of forcing the ball to one receiver. No talk of quarterback Daniel Jones going through progressions and reading what the defense is giving.

Judge sees what others see: A playmaker getting too few touches on an offense settling for too many field goals.

“It’s something we’re focused on right now,” Judge said. “We’ve got to get him the ball and we definitely want to. We saw [Sunday] a couple of glimpses of just him with the ball in his hands. He’s got the ability to make some guys miss in space, he runs hard and he competes. He comes off the ball with a different level of speed than a lot of guys.”

Toney made back-to-back catches for 16 yards but had nothing to show for his other 44 offensive snaps against the Falcons in Week 3. With Shepard and Slayton out for the final three quarters, the Giants turned to Collin Johnson (first game active) and C.J. Board (signed off the practice squad) to complement Kenny Golladay. The Giants have not used Toney as a kickoff returner — Board’s job — despite his success at Florida.

Johnson (five catches for 51 yards) is a second-year pro who joined the Giants off waivers on Sept. 1, so the excuse of Toney’s youth and not having enough time to acclimate to the offense because of missed practices in the spring and summer no longer hold water.

Rookie receivers are making a big impact around the NFL — as is the case most years with first- and second-rounders — and the Giants bypassed offensive-line and pass-rush help at pick No. 20 because of the thought Toney added a different element to their offense even when the receiver corps is at full strength. Shepard is hopeful to play this Sunday, per a source.

“I’m not going to say we’re going to manufacture 50-60 snaps artificially with [Toney],” Judge said, “but in terms of how the Saints are playing, and if the opportunity presents itself, we’ll definitely try to get him the ball.”

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.

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.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
