    I think he overthrew Slayton so he's at least partially responsible for that one.

    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. 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

  3. 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

    I don't know what it is about the Giants and QB's, but I'm convinced if we got Mahomes, or Jackson, or Rodgers, or anyone like that, they would never have the success here they have where they are now. Even with Eli, God rest his football soul, they never developed him into the "next Peyton Manning". Don't get me wrong I love him, he won us 2 SB's, was as clutch as they come and was a fucking ironman, but I wonder how he would have done somewhere else (in either Pitt or San Diego). It just seems like they never get with the times, and then wonder "what the fuck happened". 

    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

  5. 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.

    If everything was the same but we squeaked out a win id be happy.  

    I'm not interested in false hope.  I'd rather change course and not be the laughing stock of the league or division.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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
