New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley is must-see TV

New York Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley has taken the league by storm, and in addition to his remarkable numbers, the Penn State alumni brings a little something extra each week: unparalleled athleticism and excitement.

Whether he’s running 78-yards to the house without being touched or leaping clean over a grown man’s head from three yards away, Barkley has become must see TV.

Retired New York Jets legend and NFL Hall of Famer, Joe Namath, 100 percent agrees.

“From what I’ve seen on my television and from what the people have said about him that are the closest to him, I can only admire him and I look forward to seeing when he plays,” Namath told MSG.

“When I’m switching games on the TV on Sunday, I’m switching to see people. I’m switching to see teams – yes, but I’m switching to see people and he’s one of the people I tune in to see how he’s doing on that day. He’s that kind of player, he’s special.”

Despite Barkley’s wild success, many experts and fans continue to criticize the Giants and general manager Dave Gettleman for selecting him No. 2 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft instead of one of the top quarterback prospects.

“One of my old coaches – it could have been coach Bryant [said] ‘Quit dealing with coulda, woulda and shouldas’ – that’s not running through their minds,” Namath said. “I don’t want to go there – I think the Giants team is very happy with him.”

While some may still be banging the “Giants made a mistake” drum, they certainly aren’t feeling let down. Barkley is breaking records left and right, is poised to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and is both a generational talent and individual. If he stays healthy, he’s going to the Hall of Fame and will help carry the Giants to success.
