The win against the Bills was a good one. This win should cause some concern considering their upcoming schedule. This was almost the second big upset of the day.

The Phins played their best game of the year, by far. But, the Giants run D sucks. Their linebackers are terrible. It is going to be a tough go from here on out.
On the brighter side, Eli is playing like a top three QB this season. He carried the Giants yesterday, even with his receivers dropping passes all over the field.

As much as I hate the Patriots, it kind of sucks that they lost yesterday, because next week they are going to play with a vengeance. I see Brady picking apart the Giants over the middle.

I think Cruz will have another big game, and he will most likley be the key to the Giants converting on third down, he has a knack for getting open and he's not afraid to go over the middle. He just needs to protect the ball better. On several occasions yesterday he sticks the ball out with one hand trying to gain that extra yard, makes me very uneasy.

I dont understand why the Giants run D has been so horrible...I know they lost Johnathan Goff, but other veteran defenders are missing tackles, losing gap integrity, and taking bad angles to rushers...

I dont get that. This defense isnt that young, yet they keep making very fundamental mistakes. The run defense was decent as recent as last year, and now guys are all of a sudden forgetting how to play the run?

It's hard to pinpoint why they have been so bad other than to say they have multiple weaknesses. Their ends, especially Osi, lose contain in their pursuit of the QB, the interior lineman get pushed around more than our guys from last year, the LB's are inexperienced and our safeties take terrible lines (Deion Grant).
I hope we can pull it together, we are going to need to over the rest of the season to get into the playoffs.

It is funny how, no matter what the program, they have film of Osi losing gap integrity trying to get upfield and rush the passer...even on running downs...

Hate to say it, but JPP is going to be a better player than Osi. I would love to trade Osi and get a second and a couple of later picks. We need O lineman, corners and LBs.
