  1. Are you implying that I'm some sort of eternal pessimist? Im optimistic sometimes... For example, I believe that out of the upcoming new batch of reaches and injury prone "steals" that the Giants will be getting from the draft, that perhaps 1 or 2 may have a positive impact...
  2. I think you're all being a little too hard on him. After all... It's not all that often that a sports fan calls into a local sports show and claims that their team is getting hosed... Oh wait.... Nevermind.
  3. So a Giants fan just did what eagles fans have been doing for years and you're shocked?
  4. I couldn't agree more. I always felt that the bye nowhere near as relevant as so many make it out to be. When a team is on a roll, a bye can bring it to a stop. When a team is struggling and banged up, a bye can help. That's about it.
  5. I think I recall eagles fans on here crying about facing 3 after their bye or something. It is what it is.
  6. So if he comes back to life he would be a free man? That's quite a loophole there. Perhaps he was just trying to exploit it.
  7. Or the even more heinous thought that there are people who desperately desire objects that have Eli's forehead and ear sweat on them...
  8. That's exactly what I was thinking. ...And not a single tear was shed.
  9. Real simple.. If Eli plays like ish in 2017, then he's guilty AF and should be publicly shamed on top of having the book thrown at him. If Eli plays well, then it was probably just a misunderstanding.
  10. I think we should all wait and see how well he plays in the 2017 season before we jump to conclusions
  11. Bradford only got that pass while wearing green. Other than that, he's been heavily criticized. Just go look through this thread. No one cares where Foles was selected at this point. Like no one cares where RG3 and Cousins were drafted. RTK may have some personal vendetta against Foles but many others can't stop viewing Foles through Rose colored glasses. They can't come to grips with the fact that 2013 was an aberration. I as a Giants fan have nothing against Foles. He's a good guy overall. I still don't get why saying Foles is a low end starter/high end backup is so wrong. If he was better than that he wouldn't have to accept 2 consecutive backup positions.
  12. No one is saying he was. He had a vastly overrated reputation. He's tied for all-time losses with Dan Reeves. Still...... If we're going to dismiss Foles' shortcomings with him due to his issues with QBs, there would be more of a history of QBs doing well without him but struggling with him. Instead, we have McNair winning an MVP under him, Vince Young winning ROY under him and Kerry Collins going to his only Pro Bowl under him. Where are all the good QBs that struggled only under Fisher? 18 different QBs have started for Fisher. Yet none have flourished when playing without him. All I'm saying is that dismissing Foles' struggles with the Rams by simply blaming Fisher is weak and disingenuous
  13. My point still stands. Where are all the QBs that flourished before and/or after Fisher? That's why it's at the very least, a little disingenuous to simply blame Fisher for Foles' struggles in STL.
  14. What is it with everyone just handwaving away Foles' mediocre play due to Fischer? And why is it only with Foles? Keenum doesn't get that pass Bradford didn't get that pass, nor did Vince Young and Steve McNair. Kerry Collins in the twilight of his career had a 13 win season under Fischer. I get that Fischer has never been great with QBs, but please, list for me all the great QBs who flourished after leaving Fischer or were amazing until they played for Fischer. The Fischer scapegoat is valid to a degree but it's way overplayed
  15. Would the Texans have been better with Foles? I'd say most likely. Perhaps 1-2 more wins. Much better? Nah. Glennon is just the next line of QBs that did well as a backup and now is getting a chance/payday because of it. Matt Flynn, Foles, Osweiler, etc are recent examples of that. Foles is an excellent backup. I'd gladly take him as a backup on the Giants. As of right now, if the season started today, the giants would be a play away from Geno Smith... I'd say right now, he's he second best backup in the league to Jimmy Garappolo and it's a long way to number 3.
