What would the New York Giants be getting if they were to select Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the 2019 NFL Draft? Patrick Mayhorn of SB Nation’s Buckeyes website Land Grant Holy Land joins the ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast to tell us.Here are a few of the things Mayhorn told Big Blue View:Haskins is “the real deal. This guy’s an NFL talent ... I think Dwayne Haskins is going to be an extremely successful NFL quarterback.”Mayhorn said Haskins is “a very B.J. Goodson Jersey , very interesting quarterback. He’s a very interesting player and from matching him all year I can certainly understand why people are so excited about him.”Mayhorn on the idea of Haskins playing behind Eli Manning for a year: “I think if he does get to spend a year behind a guy like Eli Manning it would be helpful for his development. I think that is a situation he would probably thrive in ... I also think if Eli Manning is to retire and Dwayne is the starter from Day 1 I think he can handle that.”Can Haskins handle the New York market? “He is the exact kind of personality that can survive and really make that attention work for him ... I think that his personality, his confidence, the way that he carries himself gels super-well with New York.”Listen to the full show below.Where to subscribeYou can find and subscribe to Big Blue View Radio on the show’s home page.

The Atlanta Falcons head into a bye week feeling a whole lot better about their season.Sure, they haven't lived up to expectations in an injury plagued campaign.But two straight wins give them a reason to be hopeful.Matt Ryan threw for 379 yards while completing his final 18 passes and the Falcons added another chapter to New York's miserable season, beating the Giants 23-20 on Monday night ."You'd rather go into a bye week on a win than a loss, that's for sure," Ryan said. "We need some rest. We've got different guys banged up. All of us need to rest and refresh for the second half of the season."The Falcons (3-4) have five starters on injured reserve , which helped send a team with Super Bowl aspirations spiraling to a three-game losing streak. They snapped that skid with a victory over Tampa Bay, and then kept the winning going against the struggling Giants.Ryan threw a 47-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Hall, Tevin Coleman broke loose on a 30-yard scoring run and the Falcons sent New York (1-6) to its fourth straight loss."I don't feel like we're a 1-6 team," said Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. "That's what our record is, but that's not the feeling in the locker room."It was another dynamic performance by Ryan, who was the league's MVP in 2016 when he led Atlanta to the Super Bowl.While these Falcons haven't played to that level, their quarterback is putting up numbers that measure up to what he did two years ago: a 71.1 percent completion rate, 2 Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey ,335 yards passing, 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions.Ryan is only focused on the team's performance."To inch our way closer to .500 is a positive for us," he said.Some things to keep an eye on after Atlanta's victory over the Giants:GIORGIO STEPS UPWhile Matt Bryant recovers from a hamstring injury, Atlanta's kicking appears to be in good hands.Signed a few days before the game, Giorgio Tavecchio booted three field goals, including a career-best 56-yarder that helped seal the victory and was the longest field goal by a kicker in his first game with a new team in 40 years, according to NFL Research."That kick was good from about 65 yards," Ryan said. "He did a great job for us coming in on short notice."Tavecchio also connected from 40 and 50 yards.Even though Bryant will surely reclaim his job as soon as he's healthy Janoris Jenkins Jersey , Tavecchio set himself up to draw attention from other teams when he goes on the open market again. He kicked last season for the Oakland Raiders.BIG TROUBLE IN THE BIG APPLEGoing up against one of the NFL's worst defenses, the Giants' offense fell short again.New York was held to two field goals through three quarters and squandered another scoring chance when Eli Manning's pass on fourth-and-goal from the 1 was swatted away . Two fourth-quarter touchdowns were surely not enough to persuade anyone in the locker room that they've figured out their season-long scoring woes."We know we have talent," tight end Evan Engram said. "We're doing things. We're just not putting the big picture together. That is what's frustrating."The Giants have been held to 20 points or less in five of seven games."I can't give you the answer," rookie running back Saquon Barkley said. "We're not executing. We're not finishing drives. That's the gist of our season."BIG PLAY HALLWhile he doesn't get targeted a lot in Atlanta's passing game, Hall sure has a knack of coming up with huge plays.Last season, the diminutive receiver hauled in a 40-yard touchdown pass with his first career reception.Against the Giants, Hall broke free down the middle of the field to score Atlanta's first TD on a perfectly thrown ball from Ryan .Hall finished with three catches for 63 yards, giving him 10 career receptions. Of those Kerry Wynn Jersey , four have gone for at least 20 yards."He's put in a lot of hard work, and it's showing up," Ryan said. "He's making lot of good plays for us."BANGED-UP LINEThe Falcons have more injury concerns on their offensive line.Right guard Brandon Fusco went down late in the first half with a right ankle injury. He was helped off the field by a pair of trainers and quickly taken to the locker room on a cart.The bye week will give Fusco extra time to recover before a Nov. 4 game at Washington. The Falcons will be eager to get him back since they already lost another starting guard, Andy Levitre, to a season-ending injury.Ben Garland took Fusco's spot.BECKHAM'S MILESTONEOn an otherwise forgettable night, Beckham could at least relish a piece of history .With eight catches for 143 yards, he went past 5,000 yards in his 54th career game.That makes him the fastest player to reach the milestone in the Super Bowl era . He surpassed Atlanta's Julio Jones , who did it in 56 games.Lance Alworth needed the fewest games (52) to put up 5,000 receiving yards, accomplishing the feat from 1962-66.Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at pnewberry1963 .
