  1. I dunno, I'm pretty encouraged after this game.  I hope this is the true week in and week out Daniel Jones.  And I hope the line that was out there in the 2nd half is here to stay. Defense needs to figure their shit out though.

    Jones has a definite preference for Sheppard though, maybe just the slot thing. 

  2. Much different Jones tonight.  He seems to understand he has very limited time to find the closest thing to an open man and get the ball out of his hands.  It's caused some high throws, but you gott expect that.  Like all of a sudden the concept of pocket awareness clicked, or maybe it's just he was told that he isn't going to have time to go through his reads, and he needs to scan for the most likely to be open based on the routes.

    Good going Coughlin!

    That was his knock right?  Leg health?  Probably gonna miss a few games a year. Just hoping it isn't s lingering thing that affects his skill set

  4. Problem is this shit is so ingrained in the history of the sport, same with steroids, and is looked at so fondly in decades past that it is part of the culture and nostalgia of baseball, that MLB can't find the balance between saying "okay, we know this is going to happen here and there and it is fiun to occasionally see an umpire catch a guy with pine tar in his glove, or a nail file in his pocket - but then keeping it from becoming a part of every pitchers routine. 

    Fuck the outrage culture of fans and media and put the ban hammer away.  If you get caught, you serve a couple games suspension but it isn't taken too seriously.  Same with roids and all the other shit, if a guy gets caught, he gets a brief suspension because he broke a rule, but lets stop pretending the game today is any different that 50 years ago.  Guys cheat, cheating is part of the show, it's the pretending to be outraged by it that is less than 20 years old.

    This has been a problem for Jones since his rookie year, he holds the ball far to long and doesnt dump it off. 

    Here's a good article about it; https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.si.com/nfl/giants/.amp/big-blue-plus/new-york-giants-stressing-pocket-awareness-with-daniel-jones

    He's had time to throw but he fails to make the small check down reads or runs himself into pressure. 

    As you said there is a reason they got him more weapons because he needs to take a step forward with his QB play and he cant do it with Slayton and Gallman as the playmakers. 

    This year inst banking on the Oline it's banking on Jones who could be looking for a new team on 2022 of he doesn't improve his play.

    Yeah Jones biggest problem is a lack of feel for pressure. He's just oblivious half the time that there is anyone around him. Some guys have that internal clock or eyes in the back of their head. Daniel hasn't developed that yet.

    Like evey year after the draft, everyone is a pro bowler day one.

    We act like these guys or other guys we passed on will be good, or relevant but the truth is we really don't.

    In three year will know for sure, if this guy we passed on will be worth it or not.

    Until then another draft in the book now comes the best part grabbing up the UDFAs. 


    I can remember a few years ago JoMo pissed we didn't draft that LB because we ignored the LB group for years, he went in the 4rd round to the bears and I think he's out of the league now.

    Me, I was all in on Clint Sintim several years ago in the 1st rd, we got him in the 2nd and he flamed out pretty much immediately. 


  7. I'm really happy with the first 3 players we got, I can buy the excitement for the 4th guy - but my excitement for players selected in rds 4-7 is capped as experiments who will hopefully contribute in small ways. 

    Our first 3 picks netted guys who apparently all the experts say will contribute pretty much right away and become above average starters at least - according to the experts.  In addition to that, two picks in the first 3 rds next year, one being a 1st rd pick that might be top 15. 

    This has been one of my favorite drafts in a while.  This feels like that 2005 draft where long-time starters were picked into the 4th rd.  Of course I know shit about any of these guys and I'm just going by expert analysis and highlights.

    The final 3 rds is pretty much pull names from a hat, one of them might be on the team in 3 years, 2 of them might be in the league in 3 years.

    I mean it is hard to not love this draft right now.  DG also isn't acting like he has intentions of retiring after the season;.

    Unless he's putting a package together to get Rodgers.

  9. I'd love for us to be one of those teams that year after years gets a blue chip OL in the first couple rounds, but I also like that the WR position is getting the attention it has needed.  Adding Golladay alone wouldn't have been enough, now jones has the physical guy that will come down with the ball in Golladay, the speed guys in Slayton and Ross, the chain mover in Sheppard, and now that x factor that can be put in a lot of places on the field and be explosive with the ball. 

    Lots of needs on a team that has been bad for a long time, so it may be oline, edge, cb.  I was honestly hoping for one of the top CBs to fall to 11, thinking we would be going with one of the Bama WRs.  To get a pretty exciting player and a first next year isa pretty good haul.

    This is the most overrated QB class ever. I'm not 100% sold on Lawrence even. Mac Jones may end up the best of the bunch.

    I'm no analyst, but I have had the same kind of doubts about Lawrence.  I don't see what makes him the best prospect ever.  I mean I am rooting for him to be great, just because, but with Luck I saw it, with Lawrence, I can't seperate his skills from any of the other great college QBs that made or it didn't in the pros. 


  11. Cool, after the vaccine I had a dream I was a time/dimension traveler because I accidentally found a way to create a portal with Instagram, in my real life I was a shrimp boat captain, in the different dimension I was hitchhiking and the guy that gave me a ride new all about the dimension traveling.  I ran into myself while trying to feed the lobster creatures from Stephen King's Gunslinger series, and on my final "Leap", I became a bunny, and then I was stuck because bunnies obviously don't have Instagram accounts.
