NFL coaches, front-office personnel and owners are probably better off saying nothing about domestic violence.

It’s Tuesday, which means time to get my Peter King on and offer up a new version of “Five things I think I think” about the New York Giants. So, with the preseason half over, here are my thoughts. I think we need to talk about the blocking The Giants’ offense has, obviously, not been good in the first two preseason games. A total of 10 points in eight quarters of play is, well, 1930s football at its finest. It’s all about the blocking, and even after I looked at this issue following Saturday’s game, I think we can discuss it further. In terms of the first-team offensive line, the biggest issue a year ago was tackle play. It still is. Marshall Newhouse is what he is at this point in his career.
Only two of the wide receiver positions on the Buffalo Bills depth chart appear to have their spots locked up. Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods at the first two receiver positions with the third starting spot to be determined. Track star Marquise Goodwin, former Bengal Greg Little, Walter Powell, Greg Salas, Jarrett Boykin, and Dez Lewis all remain with a true shot at possibly winning a starting position.
