    Hoping to see lots of McCoy this evening!

  • lilmc

    Dawk!!!!!!!! That was awesome!!!

  • Daz

    loving the later game! = 10:30am here in Australia and televised! First Eagles game I’ve seen live in ages :-D

    • aerochrome2

      I studied abroad in Sydney and had the same problem. It was only a semester so tried to stay up for it live. I feel for ya though.

    • onemorebop

      I’m with you mate! Long weekend means it’s the first game I don’t have to try and hide on Gamepass at work.

    • TommyLawlor

      That’s awesome.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Dawk looks like he could suit up and play!

  • Zachary Kaplan

    Don’t have a ton of confidence here entering the start of the game. Hopefully last week it just weighing too heavily on my mind.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    I think Manning got hit on each of his drop backs so far. Good way to start.

  • Zachary Kaplan

    Awful starting field position, we really have to start improving our special teams. I thought kicking off to start would be beneficial, but we’re starting at our 10 again.

  • SteveH

    Graham and Cox off to great starts.

    • TommyLawlor

      Good to see.

  • Arby1

    Hoping for a fast start here with the home crowd on Sunday night and Dawk retiring. Let’s start in the 1st quarter for a change..

  • Zachary Kaplan

    OLine looks bad already. Vick hit again, bad start for the offense.

    • TommyLawlor

      He did at least have some time.

    • Daz

      And Shady got a touch.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Justin Tuck is starting to look like the Shredder from TMNT.

  • DamonL86

    great starting position again for the giants

  • bdbd20

    I like the playcalling so far. We just have to keep it simple.

  • SteveH

    Jesus Kendricks next to Marty B is like David and Goliath.

    • TommyLawlor

      Ha. It really is.

  • TommyLawlor

    Really could use a couple of 1st downs here even if we end up punting. Flip the field a bit.

    • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

      Yeah, if nothing else happens, we really need to flip the field position. We’re really losing that battle.

    • Daz

      well, they flipped the field – hopefully the defence can get a quick stop…

  • DamonL86

    This o line is awful

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    I blame Reid and Mornhinweg for lopsided play calling, but the line isn’t helping matters with all these penalties. Cannot continually have 1st and 20, 1st and 15, etc…

    • TommyLawlor

      That is a definite factor.

  • iskar36

    I don’t get the brown run play call. They ran to Dunlap’s side who is going against JPP and ran with Brown instead of McCoy. I understand they like Brown, but why not give McCoy the ball early in the game and get him going?

    • TommyLawlor

      Agree with you.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    I’d like to see the Eagles can the draw plays for a bit and just let the line fire off the ball. All the runs can’t be called back on a penalty can they?

    • TommyLawlor

      I don’t blame them for starting with draw plays, but agree that they should move to some more aggressive runs.

  • TommyLawlor

    That last holding call on Todd was BS. DL ran into him, fell on him. Looked awkward, but not holding.

  • Arby1

    props to Lesean for juking Phillips knee into another zip code.

  • Daz

    well, at least we’re not starting from inside the 20 this drive…

  • Arby1

    Demaris makes a good PR decision!

    • TommyLawlor

      Yeah, he had me nervous for a second.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Giants secondary looking like a MASH unit.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Can we get Todd Herremans back? I dunno who that is wearing the 79 jersey, but dude sucks.

  • bdbd20

    It’s amazing how much this offense misses Jason Peters.

    • TommyLawlor

      Yes, but to be fair that doesn’t excuse Todd’s issues.

      • bdbd20

        Good point. I just wonder how many times Todd was given help last year with JP able to dominate his man.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Whatever we’re paying Bell, it’s too much.

  • P_P_K

    I like seeing Vick in the shotgun.

  • Arby1

    Already consumed way too much beer for 1 quarter. A spritzer chaser please!

    • P_P_K

      Can’t be too much, you’re still able to type.

      • Arby1

        Yes, but I really want to watch the 4th quarter.

  • rls255

    Our o-line is leaking oil badly

    • bdbd20

      I’m sure Giants fans are saying the same thing about their line.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    I’m so tired of seeing the corner blitz work week after week after week.

  • nicolajNN

    You know how you can tell these are two bad o-lines? When even I can tell there’s a holding, before I see a flag is thrown

  • DamonL86

    3rd and long of course we blow it

  • SteveH

    Fuck bonehead play by Babin.

  • Daz

    great play by hughes!

  • lilmc

    Nice play by Hughes!

  • Arby1

    My man Brandon Hughes with a nice PBU!

    • TommyLawlor

      Huge play.

  • lilmc

    2 smart plays by Johnson tonight on punt returns!

    • P_P_K

      agree

  • DamonL86

    This play calling is awful

    • TommyLawlor

      The lack of non-draw play runs is bugging me. Andy still looking for big gainers. Just get 3 frickin yards.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Even when they do call a run play, it’s a draw. Let them fire off the ball and maul the shit out of the Giants!

  • Zachary Kaplan

    Ineffective offense again so far this week.

  • Daz

    do you think they’re (MM/AR) calling all these shitty run plays that go nowhere so we all shut up about the pass/run ratio?!

    • TommyLawlor

      Trying to burn the Giants pass rush. Good in theory, but not working.

  • onemorebop

    Ryans like a boss!

  • P_P_K

    This is tough NFC East football.

  • Zachary Kaplan

    Gonna need some extended drives, defense can’t keep this energy level up all night.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    We should throw more. (reverse pyschology).

    and constantly run draw plays.

  • Daz

    finally get Vick some time and he throws it like that? urgh

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    McCoy can make defenders look really stupid.

  • Daz

    here we go – simple throws on quick reads and we’re moving…

  • Zachary Kaplan

    Finally Vick makes a play with his legs. Big 3rd down there.

  • DamonL86

    Don’t turn it over down here

    • TommyLawlor

      I hate you for saying it, but we’re all thinking it.

      • bdbd20

        FG on 3rd down? That would be interesting

  • nicolajNN

    Better o-line play or better play calling on this drive?

    • TommyLawlor

      Playcalling has helped the OL to play better. How’s that for a confusing answer?

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Yes! Jackson!

  • Daz

    that. was. awesome!

  • TommyLawlor

    Now that was a great play. Well designed, well blocked, and well executed. More please.

  • lilmc

    Great Play!!!

  • P_P_K

    Is Maclin playing? Am I missing something?

  • lilmc

    Coming back. Special Teams are having some problems tonight.

  • DamonL86

    what happened to our pass rush?

  • onemorebop

    Eli Manning has this uncanny ability to play shit for long stretches of the game and then wake up briefly to cheat a win. I hate that.

    • bdbd20

      I always attributed that trait to being Peyton’s brother. I just think that he doesn’t feel any pressure because he has always been inferior to Peyton and just doesn’t care about being great.

  • Zachary Kaplan

    Defensive Line needs to get to Eli on this drive.

  • lilmc

    No pressure upfront

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Good play by Hughes again.

  • Arby1

    Missed offensive interference call there gives NY 3 points! Bring back the replacements!

  • lilmc

    Hughes is playing really well.

  • SteveH

    Someone has to get a screen grab of Kendricks trying to cover Marty B. It’s like my little brother trying to cover me on a pass route.

  • ian_no_2

    Hughes is doing what he does. Solid coverage, can’t catch the ball. Don’t think the receiver had his hand in there. But he stopped the TD.

  • http://twitter.com/LHGarrett Liam Henry Garrett

    Am I wrong in thinking that PI against Hughes was really obvious? Maybe Hughes should have still caught it, but the receiver wasn’t even pretending to be making a play on the ball.
