    The no call on the obvious horse-collar tackle of Murray had me ticked off. Early in the game there was a late hit on Murray that should have been called, but wasn't. Had it been no-called consistently, I'd have been fine, but we got flagged for essentially the same play on the next NY drive.

    Go Cards!!!

    This is a "you" thing because I have enjoyed every game Greg Olsen has done in the booth.

    Yes I didnt say it's a we thing
    Its a subjective thing
    I don't like the tone of his voice, saying the word unfortunately when the giants couldn't get the first down

    That just sounded like an offensive player that has had too many good plays called back. I guess it's just about how you interpret it, but I didn't see that as biased, but just disappointed that a great play that he just saw was being called back because of a penalty. I suspect he would have made a similar comment if it were the Cardinals that it happened to.

    I liked him too. He said we a few times talking about Carolina but as an active player I can't fault him.

    I liked how he really understood blocking schemes. A couple of runs he did a great job pointing out why the hole was so big

    You can't fix awareness. that's my take.

    Yes..... Agreed. Their line was a middle of the pack group coming in to this game and we annihilated them. that east coast bias has to hurt a bit when it's shoved down their throats.

    Watching the video right now and he seems to be making very fair comments. He stated that Murray was simply a game manager against the Giants and I don't think anyone could argue other wise.

    They were also both very complimentary of Kliff for being willing to call such a run heavy game plan despite being known as a pass first coach.

    Budda was rightfully called out in that video for not making a play on the Ellison TD. He seemed gun shy to me.

    I had no idea he doubled up like this. I thought it was a unique experience having a current player analyzing a game as he was able to share current data seeing as though they played the Cardinals earlier this year.

    I thought Olsen was great. I detected no bias at all.

    There was another big play I think a 4th down conversion where he got into I can't decide mode. He was trying to cut in front to break it up and then at the last minute decided he was going to just hit the Wr instead. So he didn't touch the pass and the hit on the WR was nothing and the guy caught the ball and held on easily.

    He just doesn't have the ball hawking instincts you need. He correctly figured out where Jones was throwing the ball and had a good break on it, just didn't close fast enough or decisively enough to actually break it up.

    It took until 4th year to know Dak is better than Wentz.

    I would say let's wait until end of 2021 at least to know where both players are headed. So far I like Murray way better than Jones.

    Yeah when he slid, a Giant jumped on him.

    And the horse collar by Peppers was pretty obvious as well.

    I think it was on the Giants passing TD to Ellisom that CJ was being held obviously too.

    Dak has had a much better team.

    He is the single most overrated QB in the NFL.

    Agree.

    Danny dimes is going to be a good player. Everyone calling out the Giants for taking Danny Dimes over Dwayne Trashcans are crazy.
