I'm a pats fan
And traditionally not a fan of Eli because he beat
Us twice in the Superbowl- which on some level I gotta respect

There are times Eli looks aloof and distant and alone on the sideline
But here's what I've learned to like about him
He doesn't seem to get hurt- I respect that
I don't hear him blame others

He's usually professional in an interview towards others



Pats. Took a dump with Kansas City and came back

Cowboys sucked

Other teams have terrible games too

The giants will also come back

I said that a long time ago. I probably said it in this thread. I understand why Flowers was a LT in his rookie year (Beatty getting hurt in the Spring in Flowers' rookie year). However, after that, he should have been at RT. Flowers is a big, strong guy. Why not let him play to his strengths and put him over on the right where he can maul people? It would fix so many problems. The other major problem is the Giants really dont have a LT on the roster. If Flowers gets hurt, they either have to put Pugh (starting RG, but right now at RT since Hart is hurt) at LT, or bring undrafted FA off the bench at LT. That is a problem.

The problem is LT. However, to me, the line should be: Someone else at LT, Pugh at LG, Richburg at C, Hart (current RT) at RG, and Flowers at RT. They should have found that LT in the past couple years, but they have stubbornly refused.

I am giving the offense the benefit of the doubt that Marshall has one year left in the tank, and that once him and Eli get on the same page, he will be fine. OBJ just needs to get to 100%. If the line gets better the running game will get better, but please give the ball more to Darkwa!

I just hate hearing all the moronic talking heads talk about how Eli has been terrible. Yes, Eli hasnt played well. But how well can a guy who has been under seige for 2 years with no running game supposed to react? There is no QB in the league that would hold up under these conditions. We'll see if Russel Wilson in Seattle holds up because he has spent a lot of time running for his life as well recently, and he played hurt almost all of last season...but even the 'Hawks running game has been better.

But when you have so many fundamental breakdowns on several plays, how am I supposed to judge any skill position player accurately?

Default Giants’ John Mara ‘unhappy’ with Odell Beckham’s behavior

The New York Giants are extremely unhappy with the behavior of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. during their Week 3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, specifically when he celebrated a touchdown by pretending to urinate like a dog on Lincoln Financial Field.

What is wrong with this kid. He's got some serious mental issues.

Giants

NYG-Bucs game this weekend sold out. We rarely get sell outs. Lots of NY transplants down here. Bucs were shellacked this past weekend, leaving them w/ a ton of injuries. Things don't look too good for our team. May the best team win.

There's definitely a screw or 2 loose upstairs with Beckham. Such a shame because he's got a ton of talent. If I were Mara/Reese I'd seriously consider shopping him during the offseason, because you just have to know some team will pay over the moon to get a talent like that. Get him out of a major market and to a team like Jacksonville, Detroit, Minnesota and I think he'd be pretty effective.

Transcendent talents always get a lot more rope. OBJ is not going anywhere.

He is this decades version of T.O.

Owens did play on several teams because of his antics.

The Giants have managed to earn every one of their 4 losses, so I think they are bad. I think the jury is still out on the Bucs, however. They may still prove that they are a decent team.
