Wud up guys? Happy Thanksgiving!
What is the Coldest New York Giants NFL Game that you have been to?
Green Bay, NFC Championship game. That wasn't just the coldest game I've ever been to. That is the coldest weather I have ever experienced. The day before was nasty.
Can't wait to see you guys in basketball.
Have to ask why they keep playing/starting David Diehl at Tackle? They run the ball so much better and protect Eli better as well when he's not in there.
Tyler, the coaches explain that it is not Diehl's fault that the offense has struggled and that more than one person is not playing well. They don't seem to be thinking change at that position right now.
Ever since the giants eagles game I have been worried that the loss would come back to bite us. We had the ball at the 25 yard line with 25 seconds left on 2nd down. All we had to do was run the ball and spike it and would of had a 40 yard field goal to win the game. Instead we had. 54 yd. fg. Coughlin really cost us. How do u feel about this
I think there are plenty of losses that could come back to haunt them, such as not showing up in Cincinnati. I have said this all along and am sticking by it. I predicted 10 wins back in April. I think they will need all 10 to get in and win the East. Somehow, they have to find a way to win four of the next six. That is no easy task.
How come we never see two running backs in the Giants backfield anymore? It's so obvious Bradshaw will get the ball on a lot of plays. Wouldn't a fullback or other lead blocker help if they plan to run?
They do run with Hynoski blocking for Bradshaw more than you think.
Although the Giants have not shown any indications of putting Locklear back at RT over Diehl, who in your opinion deserves the spot? I think both the run game and pass protection were at their best with Locklear, looking a lot more aggressive and physical.
Contrary to what fans think, I don't think Diehl is the reason why the Giants are struggling and the sole reason why they have lost two straight. There are a lot more factors that play into it. But with that said, he and everybody else has to pick up their play and play better. The line has to give Manning more time and block better on running plays.
Notorious OHM. Happy Thanksgiving. Any word on Locklear or Diehl? Is Locklear being inserted back in the starting line up?
Thanks Andy. Happy Thanksgiving to you! Early indications are Diehl stays at right tackle. But things can always change as week progresses.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Ohm! Every time I see Adrian Tracy on the field, he seems to make an impact, can we expect him to see more snaps after the bye? Also, since Markus Kuhn is injured, will Marvin Austin step up and live up to his preseason hype?
I think it is a possibility that they use Tracy some. It was effective against San Francisco. Depends on personnel packages and matchups. With no Kuhn, there's an opportunity for Austin for sure. And Linval has some swelling in his knee as well. So Austin could see more snaps.
Worried about the game Sunday night, can the defense step up and get some stops/pressure on Rodgers?
ASN, there's reason to be worried. Rodgers is sick. BUT, he can be sacked. And this is a game that the Giants pass rushers have to be effective. Offense has to take advantage of every opportunity in the red zone as well.
when was the last time the giants ran a screen play?
You mean one to a running back? I think they run a screen play to a wide receiver and a lot of times it isn't that effective. I think they ran one vs Cincinnati to Randle or Nicks. Can't remember the exact play. Personally, I'd like to see a screen or dump off to David Wilson.
Any Hip-Hop songs that encompasses Thanksgiving?
Hmm... probably not as many because the Christmas hip hop songs are right around the corner! LOL
How is Hakeem feeling? You think he'll regain his burst after the bye?Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving! Hakeem says he is feeling as good as he has felt all season long. He's not 100 percent but he feels his burst is coming back.
Have they announced who's taking Kuhn's spot on the roster? Has to be a DT with the injuries on that line dont you think?
DD, not yet. Coughlin said a move could be made shortly.
Hey Peter, a colleague of mine says Jay Pharoah did a good Thanksgiving rap parody on SNL that you can look up. LOL
Kenny Phillips look good to go against the Pack?
Chris, I think we have to see how much he practices this week and how he comes out of it. But my early guess is yes.
cold weather a coming - will we now see Martellus become a more frequent target as the short passes down the middle are less affected by weather - or is it still nicks on the outside and Cruz in the middle 10-20 yd area and hixson and barden on the 15-20 yd outs
PJ, I'd really like to see more of the Unicorn. I think they desperately need a third threat to emerge to take pressure off Cruz and Nicks.
Do you buy the "tired-arm" theory?
I think Eli is just in a bit of a slump and struggling. But I will say that some of his throws haven't looked great. But I think he will come out of it.
Giants getting a lot of negative blame for Pitt and Cinci. But isn't Coughlin right that theyw ere dealing with external issues unlike any ever dealt with by the team before. And it did take a toll. Will they play better now, so far after the storm and with the bye helping too?
I am sure that the storm did play a factor but I also think they got outplayed by Pittsburgh in the fourth, perhaps they faded there after emotional and trying week. And in Cincinnati, they just didn't show up.
Giants just moved Selvish Capers up to 53-man roster. Stephen Goodin added to practice squad.
bigger #s on sunday "double check" or eli? Happy thanksgiving dark or white meat? mashed or sweet potatoes
Double check. Definitely a dark meat. Dark meat rules. And definitely sweet potato mashed! Ah yeah!
Hixon and Bradshaw missed practice. Do you see either one suiting up Sunday night?
I think Bradshaw will play like normal. Hixon... maybe not. Gotta see if he can practice later in the week.
Will a 9-7 Giants team win the NFC East? Wasn't 9-7 your preseason prediction?
10-6 was my prediction. Nine may get the job done tho. Cowboys got to lose.
i was wondering with the rookies like Rubean Randle and David Wilson, instead of having them read defenses, wy dont we just give them a specific task to do when they come on the fiel!.?
I understand where you are coming from Birame... but you also don't want to drastically alter your offense and have it affect the rest of the offense either. For example, if Wilson can't block or make the right read in pass protection as the coaches say, then Eli could potentially get hurt when Wilson is out there. And if all Wilson does is get the ball when he is on the field, defense will know.
Why don't the Giants use Ramses Barden more? He seems to be more refined than Randle, and more of a big target may help Eli. I think the trio of Nicks and Barden, and Cruz in the slot is the best alignment., thoughts?
Good question Peter. I think they like Randle's big play ability. But I think Barden can help on third downs.
Not that he has made any impact this year but how long is Rivers supposed to be sidelined?
He was on the field practicing today from what we could see.
Alright thanks for the questions guys. Have a great Thanksgiving everybody! Save some pumpkin pie for me!
