The scarecrow was placed at Santa Clarita Elementary School in Saugus, California. CBS Los Angeles’ Greg Mills reports.
By Jason Keidel The area around the Meadowlands have a certain, native smell. It’s a cocktail of swamp and smoke and the shards of industry. But if you drove by yesterday afternoon, the area was particularly pungent around MetLife Stadium, where the Giants were a kind host to the Seattle Seahawks. It was a strange, 24-7 affair that was competitive in the first half, until the Seahawks (4-2) finally realized the Giants (1-6) had no talent on offense and salted the game away late. At one point in the third quarter, Eli Manning had 50 total yards passing. Orleans Darkwa was their leading rusher, with 35 yards. His biggest run was seven yards. Russell Wilson’s longest run? Seven yards. And yet the Giants started the second half with a 7-3 lead, largely because of a feisty defense and endless flags tossed toward Seattle. The G-Men may have found a solid tight end in first-round pick Evan Engram, who snagged the club’s lone TD pass. > > WATCH: The NFL on CBS All Access – Try It Free But more than anything, this game was a referendum on an alarmingly failed season for a team many of us projected as a playoff contender. While the Giants are technically still alive in the playoff chase, they are, by any sane metric, playing for pride and draft position. If they weren’t disappointing enough through five games, they lost their best player, all-pro wideout Odell Beckham Jr, and then lost his wingman, Brandon Marshall. Injuries will keep both players out for the year. The injury bug just compounds the fundamental problems around Big Blue, all of them on offense. While the defense carried them to an 11-5 record last year, a season sprinkled with some Beckham jaw-dropping moments, this year the defense is shouldering the entire team’s future. And with the league forever tweaking its rules in favor of offense, that won’t work. So while we got so excited to see Brandon Marshall swap locker rooms from Gang Green to Big Blue, many missed some essential flaws with the team. Chief among them is their offensive line, which can’t pass protect, leaving Eli Manning to take an even greater pounding than normal. And, of course, they can’t run block. Adding to that gap in their game is the dearth of decent running backs at their disposal. When Orleans Darkwa is your feature halfback, you’d better have a nuclear passing attack, and the Giants were laughably short on skill players yesterday. > > MORE: Commentary from CBS Local Sports Voices By the end of the game, the Seahawks saw more action during a sideline scuffle between Doug Baldwin and assistant coach Tom Cable. The Seahawks are an NFL mutation of the Bronx Zoo, those petulant Yankees teams of the late-’70s that stopped punching each other just long enough to win two World Series. Pete Carroll takes a liberal approach to coaching, urging his men to bank and ball on emotion. By the time Seattle stopped shooting itself in the foot, it cruised past the Giants, even experimenting with trick plays, like a 40-yard flea-flicker that found pay dirt with 9:49 left in the game. It was a meandering play that could have been defended — and was, really, with Paul Richardson and Landon Collins each cradling the ball in the end zone when they landed. But these are the Giants, and this is 2017, when nothing goes Big Blue’s way. In fact, it sort of felt like Seattle was the home team. Beyond the freckling of gray jerseys in the stands that favored the visitors, the Seahawks won their lone Super Bowl title at MetLife three years ago. It was a sad sight and an ugly game by the home club. The Mara family has shown most generous patience when it comes to their coaches. So it’s hard to imagine Ben McAdoo squirming on the hot seat. But this season is a disaster. The Big Apple knew one of its teams would be competitive, while the other would be wholly gruesome. It just had them switched. The Giants, an NFL version of an original-six franchise, are embarrassingly bad. Jason writes a weekly column for CBS Local Sports .

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Package thefts are a major problem, but is it enough to make consumers allow delivery people access into their homes? Both Amazon and Walmart have announced recent efforts to allow its drivers inside homes to secure deliveries. Amazon is reportedly working on a smart doorbell that would let drivers input a one-time code in order to get inside, and leave a package. Walmart not only wants access to homes, but to customer’s refrigerators. The retail giant said recently it was testing new delivery ideas with companies like August Home to deliver packages inside customers’ homes and putting groceries away in their refrigerators. Walmart says they are testing the concept in Silicon Valley with a small group of August Home customers.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York’s attorney general has launched a civil rights investigation into The Weinstein Co . following sexual assault allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the probe Monday. His office says it issued a subpoena seeking all company records. The Democratic attorney general says his office wants to know whether any New York employees were subjected to pervasive harassment or discrimination at the company, which is based in New York City. “No New Yorker should be forced to walk into a workplace ruled by sexual intimidation, harassment, or fear,” Schneiderman said. “If sexual harassment or discrimination is pervasive at a company, we want to know.” Weinstein was fired Oct. 8 by the company he co-founded after allegations of sexual assault and harassment spanning decades were exposed by The New York Times and The New Yorker. More than three dozen women have publicly accused the entertainment mogul of abuse. Weinstein has denied allegations of non-consensual sex. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Yankees fans are no doubt disappointed after their team fell one game short of the World Series. But when the pain subsides, they should feel nothing but optimism about the future, WFAN’s Mike Francesa said. “When you step back, it will quickly become that this year was the forerunner, that this year was the harbinger of things to come for this franchise,” Francesa said at the start of his show Monday, two days after the Yankees lost to the Astros in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series . “That they can build on this. They will build on this. “First thing they have to do is put the architects back in place, which means (general manager Brian) Cashman, which I don’t think will be any issue, (and manager Joe) Girardi — let’s see if it’s an issue. There’s something going on there — I don’t know what it is — but let’s see if it manifests itself.” Francesa also said the Yankees’ youth proved to be an issue on the road in the playoffs.

When Houston was in New York, it was another series. “One thing where we saw the Yankee youth really show its flaw was its inability to play well on the road in big spots this year. And that came through in the playoffs loud and clear, where they don’t lose a game at home and they have a very big struggle, expect for the Game 5 in Cleveland … on the road.” To listen to the full segment, click on the audio player above.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (CBSNewYork) — Ray Knight, the World Series MVP when the Mets won it all in 1986, was arrested over the weekend following a physical altercation in suburban Washington, D.C., police said. An argument between the 64-year-old former infielder and a 33-year-old man at Knight’s home turned violent around 4 a.m. Sunday, according to Fairfax County police. “Both men had visible injuries,” a statement by police said Monday. “The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.” Knight, who is an announcer on Washington Nationals TV broadcasts, was treated at a hospital before being taken to jail, police said. He was charged with suspicion of assault and battery. He has been released and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 8. Ray Knight is charged with suspicion of assault and battery. (Photo courtesy of Fairfax County Police Department) A two-time All-Star, Knight played 12 seasons in the majors for the Reds, Astros, Mets, Orioles and Tigers. He was a Met from 1984-86 and played a key role in the most famous play in franchise history when he scored on Mookie Wilson’s ground ball that rolled between Bill Buckner’s legs in Game 6 of the ’86 World Series against the Red Sox. Knight went on to manage the Cincinnati Reds from 1996-97.
