Giants

Starting to think two things

1. McAdoo is not HC material and quite frankly not OC worthy either

2. Giants need players on both sides of the ball. Maybe shop OBJ for some proven OL, DL and DB talent...

I was worried OBJ might go TO. Was hoping he keep it together but the dog peeing thing was, well troubling...  i guess given his past emotional outbursts and over celebrating TDs in losing efforts the peeing thing is tipping my boat in Regards for OBJ.

Re: Giants

I concur

We got rid of Coughlin and getting the same results. Guess it wasn't him.

OBJ ---- Herm Edwards had the best line regarding his antics. " I wonder what his parents think of his actions".  

Manning looks more nervous that a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs every single time he drops back. I can't say that I blame him but in today's game you have to be mobile. He's far from that.

I like both OBJ and TO (and Randy Moss and Ocho Cinco). I like flashy, pompous receivers. I think they're entertaining.

The Giants looked fine yesterday (after their slow start) and got beat by a great sideline catch and a 61 yard field goal from a rookie kicker. A little wind and that game could've had a completely different outcome.

So much parity in the NFL these days, every game is tough. The Steelers lost to the browns, the Patriots almost got beat by the Texans at home. It's a tough league! If you want to blame the coach for the Giants struggles, fine. But I think the teams they played so far (Cowboys, Lions, Eagles) are all solid teams. In fact, looking at their schedule, I don't see many easy games. If they played the Jets, Dolphins, & Bills twice, like the Patriots do, they'd have 6 easy wins. But they play in a tough division and have a tough out of Division schedule.

I say give McAdoo till next season, go through one more draft cycle with him, then, if he starts out 0-3 again, talk about his job at this time next year.

totally concur with the weak schedule every year for the Pats.  They are dead last in NFL for yardage allowed and points allowed but won two out of three.

Giants have a very tough schedule. Not impressed with JPP.  I was hoping we didnt sign him to big money.

Huh?  Which is it??  Is every game tough, or are there easy wins out there???

In case you hadn’t noticed, the Bills beat the Broncos yesterday, and most people seem to think Denver is pretty good.

Not sure what the G Mens problems are, but maybe the Jets won’t be the worst NY football team this year, which doesn’t say much for the Giants!

Both! Every game is tough. Every team can have good days and bad days.

But some teams are objectively weaker. The j
Jets have Josh McCown at QB and no name receivers (besides late addition Kearse).

I think Denver is good, and I can't believe the Bills won. Denver D really dropped the ball.

Sorry, time for another Huh?

The Denver D dropped the ball??  They held the Bills to less than 300 yards of total offense, had 4 sacks, and TOP was equal.  That’s not a bad defensive game.  The Broncos offense shit the bed in this one, while the Bills figured out ways of doing enough to score points, and to force turnovers on the Broncos last four possessions, which can’t be blamed on the Denver D.

Is the Bills win over the Broncos more a sign of the parity of which you speak, or the “any given Sunday” effect of which you also speak?

Given that the Bills are one of the objectively weaker teams (the antithesis of parity) that the Patriots get to feast on twice a year I guess this was an “any given Sunday” result.....
