  1. Maybe. I am a believer that if ball hits both of receivers hands...he is paid to catch it...not let it slip away. Could the pass have been better? Sure...but it was good enough. I'd go 98%/2% fault in favor of Slayton on that play
  2. What were his FA additions his first year? Need to complete the picture.
  3. For as much shit as I gave Jones last week, he played well last night I thought. Game came down to 3 plays...holding on Jones TD run, dropped TD pass by Slayton, and of course, the encroachment that allowed for a 2nd shot at the game winner. Can't pin those on Jones. He had a good completion percentage, kept drives alive with his legs, and didn't have any turnovers. That's all we need from him. He deserves a lot of credit for this game. That said, he need to play consistently at this level before he justifies his draft position
  4. I liked the pick when we made it...though I was still fighting for offensive line help I think at the time. Still think he could be a generational talent, but we still haven't given him the line he needs it seems. Football is ultimate team sport. If one piece sucks, it can blow up others, despite how good those others can be. Article is awfully interesting. Giants will pay Barkley so long as he doesn't get injured again. He's a nice guy, high draft pick, and says the right thing most days. Production comes second to Giants brass I think
  5. Agreed...though as well as Eli played, I'm not sure we are winning those SBs without the defenses we had. Not knocking Eli, just giving those defenses the credit they deserve
  6. I don't expect undefeated, but I do expect to be competitive and we have been far from it for literally years. Browns were shit for how long? How those fans stayed loyal and hopeful, I have no idea. I love the Giants, and will forever be a fan...but my interest in watching has waned hardcore.
  7. I want a pattern of wins...not one offs that lead to the doldrums of 8-9 or 9-8 but no further
  8. I'm not interested in false hope. I'd rather change course and not be the laughing stock of the league or division.
  9. Again, I think those who are critical are so because the patterns are not changing...not so much the loss itself. We will see what happens tomorrow.
  10. I don't even need a winning record to trust Jones...just stop turning the fucking ball over and be accurate with his throws. This should not be an issue at this point in his career.
  11. Treating their women like shit and their fans to shit like it's going outta style
  12. We already seem to have our backup QB...problem is he's starting
  13. And what sucks is, the Giants are loyal almost to a fault...maybe they don't want to admit mistakes...so they'll stick with DJ for 2 more years.
  14. I was never a fan of the Daniel Jones pick, but I give credit/criticism where due. I have seen enough. He will never be more than slightly above average, at best. He will never justify his draft selection. Not to say he will never win us a game because he does have some ability, but won't consistently do enough to be that franchise QB he should be.
  15. So no pass rush, a shitty secondary, and a subpar offensive line. Oh, and we gave up a what, 70 yard rushing TD? Lets not forget another Jones fumble, in the red zone when game was still winnable. Fan-fucking-tastic.
  16. Next Gen stat of the game: The Giants offensive line allowed pressures on 11 of 34 dropbacks when the Broncos rush used four or fewer pass rushers. NFL Research: Broncos QB ´╗┐Teddy Bridgewater´╗┐ became the fifth quarterback in club history to throw 35-plus passes in a game with a completion percentage of 75-plus. The others: Jay Cutler, Brian Griese, Peyton Manning (five times) and John Elway (five times).
  17. Yeah, I don't mind trying to plug a square hole on a sinking ship with a round peg when at sea...but the time to fix was in port where square pegs were available
  18. Started 19 of 42 games past 3 years. Has given up 19 penalties, holding and false start over that time. First round pick that's been dealing with injuries. Not sexy, but it's a step toward admitting DJ is gonna get killed this year if something isn't done
  19. Preseason wins and losses don't mean anything to me. Individual performance tho has some level of indication of things to come. Jones throwing a pick in the few snaps he actually played. Offensive line playing poorly when starting against the Patriots. What's gonna happen when the Washington D Line is our opponent? Not a death sentence, not gonna lose every game...but when there doesn't seem to be much correction to the issues we and the experts can clearly see...it doesn't invoke much confidence.
  20. Generally tho, 1st rounders should contribute early and often. If not, I believe the pick is a bit of a miss in terms of scouting and whatnot. I think that is regardless of how much info is out there now as opposed to the past
  21. I think in this day and age, if your 1st rounders don't see the field early and significantly, like lots of snaps within first couple weeks...their first round grade becomes highly questionable...as does your scouting dept
  22. I will reserve judgment until regular season games...but Toney's absence is annoying at this point, not worrisome. Wasn't expecting anything from 3rd round or lower anyhow. Free agents are vets. Don't care what they do in preseason...but time is getting short. They best get ready
  23. Doesnt matter..Jones would've been flattened. And the line sucks enough that you cant truly evaluate defense. Like, I don't take a lot out of our ability to abuse a bottom 5 o-line
  24. Cause that'll help the offensive line...lol. I live all the talk about Barkley coming back. If the line doesn't improve, it's going to turn Barkley, and Jones for that matter, into wasted picks. DG may not be on hot seat yet, but that could change quickly if the line sucks again
