  1. I'm definitely not saying DJ is a bust or even that he will throw the game. I'm just saying that two weeks of clean play after so many turnovers isn't enough for me to have full confidence that he's past those issues. I see a lot of great things in him and hope to continue to see him progress. I just wouldn't be that surprised if it's a "2 steps forward, 1 step back" type of situation. I hope he can keep his progress linear, though. We'll see.
  2. I hate to rain on everyone's parade... I feel confident about this game, too. But there's still a good to fair chance DJ can throw a game with a handful of a boneheaded plays. I hope he keeps his head on the way it has been the last two games. But we're still at the point where we just don't know which DJ is going to show up. I hope it's the one of the last two week. If it is, should be a comfortable win.
  3. I'm not up-to-date on the NFL's COVID quarantine policies. Will these guys be able to play by our next game, given they show a negative test by then?
  4. Props to you for calling it. Good team win. Of course I was happy with how the Giants were playing and hoping they would finish it off, but I was fully expecting them to blow it like they have several times already this season. Glad the team and DJ showed some growth. Really liking what Judge has done with the culture and mindset of this team so far. I can see why he blew away the FO in the interview process. Hopefully he can continue what he's doing and stay at the helm for the long run.
  5. It's still too early to make the call, but Jones is looking a little bit more like a bust after each game. He still can turn it around, but his decision making and ball protection is just horrific. EVEN worse than Eli's at same point in their careers... And that's pretty bad.
  6. That was a great play by the DB, but he was able to make that jump on the ball because of how hard Jones stared down the receiver.
  7. I feel exactly the same way about pretty much everything you said. My passion as a Giants fan and sports fan in general tempered quite a bit over the years. It's still emotionally rewarding on some level when my teams win but I'm not nearly as ecstatic, and frankly don't really care that much. So its gotten to be just a mild disappointment when they lose. One thing I'll add is that even though sports are games, I think it's unfair to say it's "just a game". Soccer, Football, Basketball etc are billion dollar industries and provide livelihoods and careers for millions of people. That's all possible because so many of us eagerly invest our attention, time, and money into participating in various ways. For such fans, it's a source of entertainment, and thus, a source of joy. Sports also act as a vehicle to bring cultures and nations together. Especially international sports like Soccer and Basketball. Of course don't forget the Olympics. These athletes dedicate their lives to master their craft, and along the way learn countless life lessons and wisdom. Those lessons are often imparted on the fans, as well. Sports teach us discipline, focus, trust, among many many more important values. The last thing I'll add is that athletes inspire the whole world. For example take just one iconic athlete like say, Michael Jordan.Think about how many people he has inspired to be great at something, whatever it is they wanted to do. Sports have a massive impact on society. Of course some negative but A LOT of overwhelmingly positive. I know that wasn't the main part of your comment and this isn't really related to the Giants vs Eagles game lol. But sports have had a very real and positive impact on my life personally in many ways so I always feel compelled to share my thoughts when I see people not giving it it's due respect.
  8. I see what you did there. But none taken. The second half of this game is the only football I've watched all season so far so I wouldn't exactly say any of this is burning me up.
  9. Yeah, well we have very little talent to begin with so we'll call it even 😜 Plus, were missing a few starters ourself, but let's not compete in the pity bowl. This division is a dumpster fire.
  10. Giants up 21-10 with 6 minutes to go. Certainly tough loss to swallow (though it would feel even worse we were a decent team.) Jones looked good when the game was on the line and he had decent protection. I mean, he made the game-winning throw. Not much more you can ask from him there. Gallman looks HUNGRY out there. He's been grinding on this team for several years and you can tell he's fed up of being overlooked by the coaches and FO. I hope they keep feeding him. He can get the offense going with that fire.
  11. Evan Engram is an athlete, not a football player. He always drops timely throws.
  12. If the Giants somehow lose this, I think it has to be the worst loss in recent memory given how decimated the Niners are right now.
  13. I just opened up this forum for the first time since this tragedy, and saw that this thread was at 24 pages. How fitting. Would be cool to lock it up out of respect to Kobe.
  14. I've never heard of Joe Judge until I read the announcement that he was hired as the next NYG head coach, so I was very skeptical. I don't know if he'll work out for us or not, but the things I've been reading about him have been very promising. He's a winner, leader, and has high football IQ.
