So…anyone pulling for the Giants tonight?
Brent made the point that now one might start to worry about the Giants having a very high draft pick and drafting a very good player. Then again, one good player won’t fix the Giants.
I won’t cheer for them, but there is something to be said for hoping they finish 6-10 or something like that.
6-10 might win the division.
Shut up, Debbie Downer.
We want Positive Pauline.
If we can rip off 4 wins in our next 13 games we have a shot at the division crown. How’s that?
I’m all ready printing the t-shirts.
Eagles: 2013 Division Champs
Because somebody had to get it.
Did I just hear Giants fans in the stadium?
So uhh…who could we trade for Randle?
Riley Cooper? Or is that too much to give up.
Buy low on Nicks
I would prefer they lose, but if they win I’ll take that too. Not only for the draft pick, but good god the East needs some street cred.
When people make NFC Least jokes…we can’t say a word.
Not a big Cutler fan, but he sure is fun to watch when he’s on.
So true. Good Cutler is special. Bad Cutler…is awful.
Wild to think that this guy is infinitely more successful than VY and Leinart.
He wasn’t from that class was he? **edit** he sure was. Wow felt like he came out later.
Yeah took him a long time to come on, but good for him. Helps to have BMarsh to throw to all the time.
Hopefully Bad Cutler will be back by Week 16…
Honestly this team didn’t scare me as much as i thought they would. This was a very winnable game for the giants without the turnovers. Though i guess you could have said that about the eagles game too. Bears look beatable. 13-3?
The Bears defense was awful. Their soft zones left huge holes for receivers, and they missed a ton of tackles. It was like watching the Eagles last year. Guys just bouncing off other guys.
If it weren’t for that last interception, the Giants might have pulled this one out at the end!
Bears pass rush isnt scary with Henery Melton and without a healthy Tillman, they are also limited in the back end.
kelly will tear apart a zone defense.
Anyone know why Gould and Hester had a little spat? Just curious.
Bad kickoff. A line drive hopper, the Giants returner grabbed it, then had a 46 yard return. Hester was getting stuffed all night and was clearly pissed the Giants were outshining him at home.
Draft notes: Good to pull for the giants if you think they could finish above the birds for obvious reasons. Good to pull for Bears if you think the giants will finish below the Eagles. The worse the NFC… the worse the Eagles strength of schedule, the better the Eagles tie breaker for draft
Root for them next week.
Man what a way to lose. Almost feel bad for the G-Men, had cruz / alshon on my fantasy so not a great night.
That is why I don’t get involved in fantasy football. I focus on the Eagles and that is all I really care about regarding football.
I just make a rule that I don’t take players from the other 3 NFCE teams.
that’s a good rule for this year.
Reid still has as many wins as the NFC East.
I was pulling for the A’s, but it was Groundhog Day – Verlander stifled them all night, a repeat of Game 5 from last year.
Oh, was there a football game worth watching tonight? (Rutgers-Louisville?)
I hear Bridgewater was good, not great
Watching Eli throw 3 INTs in a game is magical. He is now tied with Dan Fouts through 6 games. Please don’t but down a game that may have INTerrupted your night. Or let it INTerfere with your daily INTerests.
I had fun watching. INTeresting to me.
Hakeem Nicks could be on the chopping block, his contract year isn’t going so well.
Would he be worth signing as a free agent?
At the right price. clique ?
I like Nicks, but he is always NICKed up and he will demand way too much.
I think he’s a great fit, as far as skill set. Problem is a big contract is a major risk for a guy who does not seem to be giving maximum effort.
I don’t want to think about that other recent Giants cast off WR that the Eagles acquired.
I don’t think that will happen.
they are bringing Reuben randle along. Feel like he hasn’t been great the last couple of years but he’s definitely better than riley cooper – better than maclin if he’s playing well.
What’ the compensation?
if he’s coming off a 600yd year with 5tds, probably not much
I wish you are right…in the meantime, I am going to slam my head against the curb to knock away the kolbwebs.
The thing is he’s in the last year of a contract where he thinks he’s worth a lot more than the Giants do. And with the team being 0-6, they may prefer to ditch him and get what they can in terms of draft picks. But the more obvious customer for them is New England.
Maybe some of the smart people here there followed the NFL longer than me.
Is it right that Jim Johnson was the DC that made the A gap blitz popular? I remember us doing it a lot with Trotter, but was there other teams there did it a lot before Jim Johnson? (sorta like the 4 DE, defensiveline in pass situation, made popular by Spags, but he got the idea from JJ and JJ stole it from the Saints DC Jim Haslett who had used Darren Howard that way)
Now just about every team in the NFL shows double A gap blitz on passing downs.
JJ’s signature was the double A gap blitz. He designed it to stop the West Coast Offense and first used it when he was with the Colts, who were able to upset the Packers when he used it extensively and successfully against Favre. Obviously that impressed Andy Reid who was with the Packers at the time.
Thanks for the info.
Even tho Jim Johnson does not always get enough credit from outsiders. He had some brilliant ideas and had a real impact on how defense is played now a days.
Who’s there ?
