  1. I take this route to work every day.. there's no good way to get around the traffic with the construction on 495. You just kind of accept it and wait to get through. There are officers all over the streets trying to direct traffic. Kind of a **** move to try to get around it. But Lauletta is irrelevant. Not a long term option, not a short-term option. Screw 'em.
  2. Fire Sale Time

    I would HATE a trade down. Maybe because I'm jaded by how many mid-round misses we've had but we need to get premium players. If we were trading out of the Top 5 because Herbert or another QB isn't there, I'd rather a 2020 1st Rd Pick instead of moving back in 2019.
  3. Eli Apple traded to New Orleans Saints

    I think Eli Apple could have been a solid #2 for us long-term. He wasn't going to be lock-down but he was physical. On a team with consistent pass rush, I think he would've done well. Last season was an embarrassment and that soured a lot of people on him but his play was good this season. Jackrabbit won't be around much longer so we literally have no starting CBs. Here's hoping Sam Beal can be an instant starter next season...
  4. Week 5: New York Giants @ Carolina Panthers

    Just give me an OBJ touchdown... PLEASE
  5. Week 4: New Orleans Saints @ New York Giants

    It's not so much about the loss to Brees and Kamara to me but how bad this offense looked against the NO defense.. We have to be able to score more points, especially against defenses like that.. I can't think of another situation where a team had this much offensive talent at skills positions and can't score points. It's really very sad.
  6. Week 3: New York Giants @ Houston Texans

    This game showed exactly what I mean about Eli. He still has games like this in him. He should NOT be leaned on heavily at all anymore but we can win with him. The ugly games like Week 2 have been a part of Eli's entire career. He definitely has less zing on his throws but he can get it done. And he is NOT overwhelmed mentally. Give him a little time and he can get it done. As long as we're not 2 scores behind in the 1st quarter, we have a great shot. Keep Barkley and the running game involved. Maintain that balance and avoid big negative plays. Hopefully we get OV and Eli Apple back this week, get another W and build some confidence. All of a sudden, our next stretch is not horrible. NO and CAR are very winnable games. PHI and ATL will of course be tough but then we have WAS and a Garoppolo-less 49er team. If all goes well, we could be 5-4 with a winnable back end of the schedule. We are not a very good team right now and we have a ton of holes that we will not be able to fix throughout the season. But with a couple things going our way, we can sneak into the playoffs.
  7. I don't think this is completely fair. More often than not, he is immediately scrambling or back peddling after his initial drop back. He has NO time to look off a safety or go through his progression. That being said, Eli looked bad physically last night and his accuracy was horrible. He has always had those issues but it just is more often these days. I do think it's time to move on at this point. I don't think he's completely done but he past the point of being able to make the team better. He can't carry the team anymore
  8. Week 1: Jacksonville Jaguars @ New York Giants

    Encouraging signs in this loss but unfortunately, this also has the look of a team that's going to lose a different way each week. Some offenses are going to move the ball all over this defense. When the D plays well, the OL is going to play like it did Sunday. When those two things are going well, Eli will have one of his head scratching games. But damn, it was fun watching OBJ and Saquon do their thing out there.. the pieces are there but we're too thin this year. Here's hoping Eli can truly play at a high enough level to let us fill this roster out over the next season or two. #onemorerun
  9. QB Davis Webb CUT

    16 months ago Davis Webb was a 3rd round pick to an 11-5 football team, which happens to be one of the most stable franchises in the NFL, and a 36 year old starting QB. Basically the perfect situation to be drafted into as a mid-round QB. Fast forward to today and he is signing onto a practice squad with a team he has zero chance being the long-term starter for. Crazy world.
  10. Week 1: Jacksonville Jaguars @ New York Giants

    I'm suuuper excited for this season. Not due to any expectations either, just so many different things to see. An entirely new defense, Saquon, the return of OBJ. Jacksonville's defense is fantastic, we know this. But their offense has to show me they can move the ball before I give up hope in this game. Of course, I'm most excited for that first catch in space for Saquon!
  11. QB Davis Webb CUT

    There was a report earlier in camp about his personality and how he gets too amped. It's hard to say whether that would be enough to drop the guy with seemingly nothing to lose but who knows... Either way, it doesn't affect us this year. If Eli goes down, we're screwed no matter what.
  12. LOL It would be nice to see the oline play a bit better. We have so many weapons but it could be ruined by the oline
  13. Training Camp Thread

    What's up guys? Long time, no talk. This board has been dormant for far too long and we're approaching Christmas (Week 1) so it's time to get excited! So far, I've seen some positive reports on Davis Webb. He's apparently throwing the ball really well so I'm excited to see him get some time in the preseason. All reports also very good on OBJ, which is awesome. Shep grew a lot as a player last year. Having OBJ, Shep, Engram and Barkley all together is going to be a lot of fun. New year, same inconsistency with Flowers and the other tackles. Very scary stuff there. Biggest position battle? Has to be FS. Everything seems set on offense for better or worse. Starting CB spots have been solidified due to lack of options (fingers crossed that Eli Apple has turned things around) and the defensive front 7 seems pretty straight forward. There are a lot of depth battles but having a starting spot this wide open has to win by default. I still have my hopes that DT figures it out this year but I have confidence in Adams if DT can't be the guy.
  14. Would love to see Robert Martin make the team but it's not going to happen.
  15. RB Saquon Barkley selected by Giants 1.2

    I don't understand why people think this would happen. They think Eli Manning still has a lot left and that they can win with him. If they are wrong, they'll be picking near the top of the draft again anyway. They are going to see what they have in Davis Webb and won't even think about another QB until they have an answer there. Everyone thinks Hernandez is the guy. They are guaranteed either him or Landry and I would be happy with either.
