iknowcool Posted October 7, 2018 Share Posted October 7, 2018 Hey guys, there is a game today. Lots of good stories in this one coming off the bye. The biggest one of course is Eric Reid, who will get the start. With the way Bradberry (who will likely shadow Beckham as he did vs Jones and Green) and Jackson have locked down the corner position, Reid could be the final piece of the puzzle that takes our secondary to another level. Obada will be active today too. Does he continue his success from the Bengals game against a below average Giants OL? Finally, the Panthers are getting back Curtis Samuel and Damier Byrd. This is the strongest group of receivers the Panthers have had in awhile (to be fair - that isn't saying much) so it will be interesting to see how they rotate guys in and out. Samuel looked like our best receiver in training camp and preseason, so there is no reason to think he won't get plenty of snaps. Keep a look-out for who loses snaps in response between Smith (our usual #2), Moore, and Wright. Giants have underwhelmed this season, but it should still be a close game. Newton's legs will likely be the difference maker though. Giants have struggled slowing mobile QBs down. That's a problem when you gotta play Newton. With the Falcons at 1-3 and headed into a game with the Steelers, a 3-1 start would be tremendous and give us some breathing room for a tough schedule ahead. Plus to go 3-1 with TD guaranteed to return and Olsen potentially back next week too... this team could be heating up. Inactives: DE Marquis Haynes, CB Corn Elder, LB Jared Norris, RB Cameron Artis-Payne, DE Bryan Cox Jr., G Brendan Mahon, LB Jared Norris, TE Greg Olsen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
