Giants’ Saquon Barkley doesn’t hold back on his frustrations with team after loss to Jets
New York Giants fans were disappointed by the showing their team made against the bottom-feeding Jets. It was a game that saw Daniel Jones play fantastic football but still fall short against a Jets defense that is usually terrible. Saquon Barkley was also stopped from making any significant plays.
It’s understandable why Barkley was frustrated after losing convincingly against a team that’s supposed to be the worst in the entire league. When he was approached by Ralph Vacchiano and the rest of the media after the game, he didn’t bother hiding his disappointment.
“Frustrated, disappointed, angry … nobody wants to be 2-8,” Barkley said. “Yes, everybody’s upset. Everybody’s frustrated.” https://t.co/GovJS2W5jm

Thanks to this loss, the Giants now have one of the worst records in the NFL. Barkley is right to find this current state of the team as unacceptable.
The passing game was the only bright spot for the Giants during their game with their AFC neighbors. He completed 26 passes for 308 yards and four touchdowns. Darius Slayton and Golden Tate made all of the important catches as they both got two touchdowns. Slayton was the more impressive wideout as he finished with 121 receiving yards, but Tate wasn’t that far behind with his 95.
The running game was atrocious. The Jets’ defense had Barkley’s number throughout the game to the point he only finished with one rushing yard despite carrying the ball 13 times.
Something has to change in the Giants organization if they want to start winning football. Firing Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur may be the right course of action, but they definitely have to do something. If they don’t change, Barkley’s outbursts will become a more common sight.
