    have we reached that point that we're so confident in Jones that we want to save him for 'meaningful' games? Because I see a developing player who needs the reps.

    if we want to play the hindsight game, why were the Giants starters sat out basically the entire preseason? Jones needed more reps then, and certainly not fewer reps now. 

     

    Somebody better by this guy a beer.     :cheers:

    I do not know if Judge gets another year, but I think it is a shame to have him run out of town so quickly when you see the players he has been handed and the insane amount of injuries the team is taking on.    

    With what is looking like 2 top 10 draft picks coming our way, the sooner Getty is out the better.   The question is do we trust Judge to work with Mara on selecting a GM who shares a vision with him...   or do we trust Mara to pick a new GM/Coach combo...        Personally I would rather have Judge's input on a GM than Mara on his own...    unless he makes an offer to Rik, obviously 

    I'm on board with this line of thinking... Judge was handed good players only this year (mainly the FA signings and of course the rookie class that seem to do well so far).    The injuries is the wild card here... everyone is dropping like flies through not fault of their own... just one of those seasons (or part of the season) you wish can forget or start over.... I like Judge and until he completely shits the bed, he deserves a chance.

    Best decision I have made is a long time

    I'd planned on heading upstate to Harriman State Park; a place I want to visit every year this time of year... I haven't been able to make it the past 5 or 6 years... then I thought I didn't want to miss the game and the fact that the weather was blustery/windy (I don't mind the cold but the windy fall feel tends to trigger headaches).... I hope to make it next week though.

    I started a new workout last week... all dumbbells, full body, 3 days/week. The workouts are only about 25 minutes and don't feel like they do shit... but I'm always sore the next day and can feel myself getting stronger.

    Yeah I’m usually sore 48 hours later for some reason… I try to work out no more than 45 minutes and I’m already seeing results.  3 days ago we played basketball and they had the youngest kid (around 19) guard me because they said I was fast… I did have a grin on my face when I heard that… the kid was built like Lebron and shot a lot of 3s… he didn’t miss much.

    Lol, so I'm right.

    What the Eagles did was flat out throw the game with back of the roster shit.

    There was a respectable amount of effort out there even until the end. This isn't the 2017 McAdoo Giants yet.

    I don't know brother... this game felt surreal... Things didn't seem to add up... The Rams had no resistance to anything they wanted to do... I've been on Judge's corner and I'm not sure if he'd lost the team or not... I didn't feel that way before this game... but now I have my doubts.

    These guys have given up

     

    Hi everyone,

    For the first time in a very long time I felt this team wasn't even trying... I didn't think that two teams in the NFL can be so far apart in terms of professionalism/work ethic.   This team looks like it's given up and it's embarrassing.

    No, he had one. On the other two the receiver fell down and Evan Engram.

    Jones doesn't look very sharp out there... you can sense he's a step behind.

    speaking of.... today is leg day. 

    I plan on being nearly unable to walk by game time. I'm going to look like a woozy Daniel Jones when I get off the coach to get a beer. 

    😂 I started going back to the gym a week ago.  4 days of working out (without killing myself) and it feels great.

    the counter point to 'why not err on the side of caution is', players want to play, and the locker room would break from the coaching staff if the coaches hold out a medically cleared player. 

    my concern/fear is that Jones maybe read up on how to beat the concussion protocol. 

    having read more about Jones post game and the protocol itself I'm not quite so concerned about that anymore. Apparently he was perfectly normal immediately after the game and read a book on the ride home.

    So --- hopefully --- those jelly legs were more about coming off a hard rep and it was like 'leg day' out there. 

    Point taken.

    the flip side of this... if the doctors clear the kid, why wouldn't he play?

    Agreed however doctors can be wrong too… why not err on the side of caution.   I can see where there was no concussion…. About a year ago I got slammed while in traffic… although we were al a low speed the hit was hard which caused my head to snap back and slam onto the headrest… for a few minutes after the hit I was out of it and could barely speak to the 911 operator… after that things cleared up and I waved the ambulance and told the guy who hit me and the cops that I’m fine…. I’m thinking Jones got the wind knocked out him…. And just got up too quickly.

    This is not good for long term health.  Sit him down for one game please.  It seems as if they are trying to rush him back.  If he plays he can risk permanent life changing injury in his 40's or 50's.  It maybe twenty or thirty years away for him right now... however it comes real quick as time flies.

    Exactly.   I suffered a concussion playing football while in the Army.... no one knew about it and I didn't know what to look for (I was too young to even know what a concussion is).   I remember taking 9 advils hoping the headache would subside... it didn't.... and I was in headache hell for over 2 weeks... add that to the few more concussions I suffered after that and here I am with nearly daily headaches...

    Dude, there has never been a NY GM that any of us agreed with when it comes to drafting and signing FAs.  George Young, Ernie Accorsi, Jerry Reese; they all had a couple of great players they drafted or FA signing. Most of the players they drafted were average, some were bad and others were simply criminal.

    Gettleman was drafting and signing guys for one head coach his staff and is now drafting players for another head coach and his staff.  He had to clean house to bring in players and some were signed by Reese for another head coach.  It has been a crazy four years:  Sterling Shepard is the longest tenured player on the NY Giants at 6 seasons.  He has had 4 head coaches, 2 starting QBs, etc.

     

    I understand and agree.   I think my discontent comes from drafting guys like Barkley (while arguably a good player) before addressing the OLine which is needed for anyone, including RB, to be successful in the offense.

    The thing is, if you're the "CEO Coach" then you have to actually manage your team... that means pulling the playcalling duties from Garrett when you're 30th in scoring after 3 weeks and not fucking up your timeouts every game.  He did that last year with Columbo, I have no idea why he's so slow to pull the trigger this year. 

    Same concept applies here, Seph... we're now 5 weeks in so maybe he's not too slow after all.   I don't know what Garret is seeing but I'm not a coach either so I have to trust they're trying to figure shit out...

    That's fair, and arguably the most frustrating thing about him. 

    By all accounts, he studies the playbook, stays after practice, is a good teammate... he just comes up short every week.

    trust the process Seph 

    Sometimes, people just need some head space.   I'm a firm believer in giving people every opportunity to succeed.   I'm not a fan of booing the guy... no matter how frustrating his play has been, he's still a New York Giant.   

  14. 13 hours ago, TaylorBanksCarsonVanPelt said:

    He had a concussion.  He should sit out this week at least.  Better he be able to read a receipt at 40 than to play a relatively meaningless game for a soon to be gone coach.  Risk getting fucked up again.  For what?

    I agree.   I don't care if he feels ready... Concussions are nothing to fuck with... PERIOD.

    Oh yay more stats.

    So is anyone surprised by those numbers and do they simply conclude our pass rushers are terrible and we must draft a pass rusher three years ago but Gettleman needs to go and everyone can go with him.  :cry:

    I continue to think the team has gotten better week to week and as the pass defense tightens up, the sack numbers will too and the silly metric/chart up there.

    Wish I could tell you that I'm surprised at the play to date of Carter/Ximines so far.   

     

    I do agree that this team is improving... and I like what I see.   I can not however excuse quite a bit of DG's decisions in drafting and signing FAs.

    That second chart highlights the problem with the D.

    It should temper our enthusiasm regarding Ojulari as well. He's gotten home a few times, but on the whole is nowhere near the play. (....Really? I don't feel like that is what I am seeing.)

    It would be interesting to see where Leo Williams rates.

    He's shown quite a bit for a rookie.
