I totally agree...I just have wishful thinking because I think Richardson is totally going to be a beast.

Plus, you know how drafts are: Richardson could fall, and the Giants still might not take him--after all, they didnt take Ingram and he fell.

Imagine if the Giants had drafted Von Miller.... I'd take 11 of those right now.

Yup- and smart Gms do not waste high draft picks on RBs. Da'rell Scott is going to be a very good rb. You can get them later in the draft.

I am interested in seeing if he (Scott) is going to get a shot here to carry the ball a little bit more in games...

IMHO, the Giants need an interior O-lineman, a LB and more depth in the secondary. I just don't see them spending a high draft pick on a RB.

Looks like the offensive line took the night off. Doesn't help that the running game is practially non-existent.

Is it just me or does Collinsworth annoy the shyt out of anyone else?

I think it is really time the Giants look at replacing Kareem McKenszie (sp) at right tackle next season. I think he is beginning to slow down, and he doesnt seem to the blocker he once was.

Ahmad Bradshaw is sorely missed, the Giants are 0-2 in his absence now. Eli Manning can't win offensively by himself.

You can't blame the game on the defense, even though they yielded 9 of 17 third down conversions. Eagles really only mounted one sustained drive, the last one of the game.

O line was pathetic. Jacobs is quickly becoming an anchor. Overall, a dismal effort by the Giants. There were so many issues with the team and coaches, its hard to figure out where to start.
One thing is for sure, the late season collapse is becoming a bit old. Either they turn it around or a major coaching change must occur. Maybe not TC, but Fewell, Gilbride and the Special teams staff.

I dont know how I feel about a coaching change. I think, thus far, the Giants have done well considering what they are dealing with. I know injuries are a part of the game, but those rookie linebackers kept making mistakes in the Eagles game. Some of us were concerned about the O-line as soon as Seubert and O'Hara were let go...should that fall on Jerry Reese? I think all things considered, the defense played pretty well, but how many LBs and DBs can you expect to lose and keep playing at a high standard? I still dont think Jacobs is hitting the holes with the same vigor he used to. Is it fair to say that the Giants schedule this season will have something to do with a possible collapse this season?

On the other hand, what holes does Jacobs have to hit? Earlier in the season, veterans were acting like they had never played the run before--is that on Fewell? The serious lack of a running game--does that fall on Gilbridge? Should all of this fall on Coughlin? Ever since Dominik Hixon went down last season, the Giants return game has been a horrible joke. Where does the blame lie in that? Where do the players responsiblity fall in all of this? I agree this late season collapse thing is becoming old (real old)...I just dont know how it should be addressed at the end of the season, if they do indeed collapse.
