I’m reading some rave reviews on Dexter Lawrence...
Well, he’s starting...so that’s good.

This D might be ok.

Need a fast start, for everyone’s sake...

Considering there is only 1 cut date...good for him!!!

Isn’t there a naming of the 53 man roster and the rest will be practice squad?

No.

1 cut on 8/31, unless you really suck and can’t make it to 8/31 (cough, Dungey, cough) and then they name the 10 Practice Squad guys on 9/1.

I mean I am not going to watch this game beyond just flipping thru but your color commentator said the Giants are going to keep this Manila because you play the Jets in the week 10.
That is such amazing spin. Just shut up if you are going to say that. The Jets kept it Manila and drove the length of the field.

Daniel Jones went 5-5 for 67 yards and a TD...

My buddy who bet the NYG money line was thankful.
I can’t imagine betting preseason football but to be fair Jones looked solid.
Jones is going to surpass Eli after week 6 is my guess. Give him that mini bye week and start him week 7.

I will not allow anyone to have their cake and eat it too.

The party line is ‘Eli sucks and Jones is worse’.

Now toe it.

The issue wasn’t taking Jones.
The issue was taking Jones at 6 overall.
You guys could have taken an elite DL like Ed Oliver at 6 and then with the 17th pick traded back up for Jones.

Eli is a bottom 5 starting QB right now so I don’t know what to tell you.

4000+ yard. QBs with decent TD #s and low INTs, are not bottom 5.

It’s very simple.

You don’t realize how much the quality of QB play has risen because QBs can’t be hit anymore.
Eli is one of the bottom 5 starting QBs right now.
Washington starting QB
Murray- Arizona
Miami starting QB

Are the only starting QBs I would take Eli over.
Allen-Buffalo and Dalton-Cincinnati I debated but I would take the young kid Allen and Dalton over Eli right now.

Your GM took a QB 6th overall he knows your QB play was sub par.
When you are drafting 2nd and 6th overall in back to back years the QB is going to take blame when they aren’t young. Defend the guy all you want but you guys drafted his replacement last year.

Of course the Giants drafted his replacement, he’s in his 15th year.

The Giants ‘went’ 9-7 last year, with a horrible OL.

The QB play was not the reason.

That said, he still will likely not be a Giant next year.

This year, Pro Bowl.

Chargers and Steelers QBs are entering their 15th year and their teams didn’t spend first round picks on their replacements.

If Eli was still a top half QB like Rivers and Rothlisberger your GM doesn’t take a QB 6th overall.

The Steelers moved up to 10th overall and they didn’t take a QB.

They should have.

All the reasons why the media hates Eli, those guys check the same boxes, except rivers was worse, he threw for more yards to his RBs than Eli did.

And apparently, that’s a QB no-no and big sin.

Daniel Jones nees to talk to Tiki about protecting the football.
Eh. He’s 16-19 passing. 2 TDs, 0 INTs.

If there’s going to be a problem at this point, I’d rather it be a couple fumbles than INTs/inaccurate passes/bad decisions.

I think the fumbling for a QB is much more correctable than being inaccurate or making bad decisions.

I’m very high on Jones at this point.

I think DannyBoy has done enough to prove Shurmer right, he’s ready...


To be a #2 so the GIANTS don’t have to keep 3 QBs.

If they keep 3, well...

I’m so excited to see Eli play with an OLine that gives him a chance.

The OL is better, Barkley is elite, the WR core is deeper, the defense is young but hungry and will improve as the season goes on, teams will stop making 98 yard field goals to beat us, team depth is a little better, the schedule isn’t too bad - Dallas is in disarray and Washington sucks - I smell playoffs!!
