The browns looked better then the Giants last night.The hit on ODB wasn't dirty but it was a cheap shot.Beckham and Marshal both out.

Yeah I did notice that hit was a bit excessive for a preseason game. But it was legal and those guys playing are fighting for jobs.


How long will Beckham and Marshall be out? Wanted my Boys to beat you guys at full strength..

This definitely does not send the right message IMO. Fined 50K for not speaking to the media but only 9K for throwing a punch at an opposing player. What in the heck is going on in the NFL office? Of course we have all known they have had issues handing out discipline for a while now. When Pacman was not suspended for his helmet less slamming of Amari Coolers head into his own helmet I knew nothing much would you done here.
From the 2015 season. Don't feel sorry for Beckham. Put some ice on it and he'll be ready for week one anyway.

Marshall, I dont know...Beckham could possibly miss Week 1. That was the latest I heard...

That's my hope!

Just sitting here watching the Fox pre-pre-game show.
And understood, we're all entitled to our subjective opinions.. but Tony Gonzalez is touting Dak as the best QB in the East.

Interesting, a guy fresh off his rookie season, with zero playoff wins, is now viewed as better than a 2-time Super Bowl champ. Dumb.

I want to see Dak do it for a second year. Def Coords now have a season of tape on him. Do I think he is going to fall flat on his face? No. But, before they anoint the guy, how about an encore?

As a Boys fan...I think its too soon to anoint Dak or Wentz as the best right now until we see them play for 2-3 full years.


Good to see Boys finally beat Giants. Surprised that the Giants GM didn't try to fix their o-line in the off season. Giants D is still great. Some Giants fans are getting tired of Eli but I think he still can play at a high level but needs more support from a good run game and much better O-line. Hunt and Flowers aren't that good.


Giants gonna have to pay Beckham. Nobody else to stretch the field and was expecting a lot more from Marshall.

Sterling Shepard and Ingram played as well as they could. The issue with Marshall here is that he no showed, which is uncommon for him since he's had 1,000 yard receiving yards for 4 different teams. The guy can play, but the fact that he wasn't even mentioned last night makes you think he lost a step, the team is not a good fit for him, and/or the Cowboy's defense literally just shut him down. I'm looking for Shepard to make a small leap this year, with or without Beckham. He was targeted quite a bit last night, but just couldn't get any YAC. Cowboy's defense was relentless, yet the Giants had absolutely no running game to speak of.
