    Agree with you.

    I also think Keim is pretty lucky that we hit a soft spot in our schedule. it's keeping the wolves at bay for the moment.

    But after the Giants our games are:

    New Orleans
    San Francisco (home game)
    Tampa Bay
    San Francisco
    Los Angeles (home game)

    Holy crap.

    0-5 in that stretch is a real possibility. How do you think the mood will be on Hardy drive if that happens? :)

    To be fair the team will likely get better as they play more and more games. Getting a soft spot like this early in the schedule could be huge for the overall results for the year.

    I got him on the waiver wire lol. McCafferey's got a bye week so I need to improvise. Currently have DeVonta Freeman taking his place, but Miami's defense is so piss poor that I'm wondering if I should start Gore instead.

    I hope we can go 2-3...somehow pull out a win home against SF or LA, and against Tampa.

    But yeah, 0-5 is a possibility.

    0-6 is a possibility. Jones has energized the Giants and given them hope they haven’t had in several years just like Kyler has for us. This could be the first meeting of some incredible post season clashes between Murray and Jones.

    Flores wants a win, PERIOD. He wasn't getting that with Rosen.

    I'm hoping for 5-0. :) Cardinals shake up the world.

    But I would happily take 2-3.

    I find it astonishing that people can be fans of team like the Cardinals and still utterly fail to curb their enthusiasm.

    If there were ever a team in which prudence should dictate trepidation before each and every game this would be that team and yet string two wins in a row and enthusiasm explodes upon us.

    Another organization on the way down

    Devlin Hodges and Ben Rot comong back. Ben is poison to heir apparent QBs. Ben Don't groom.

    Omar Kelly is a moron. Worse than any beat writer in America.

    Jones has done ok and yeah people were sick of Eli Manning that was obvious. But Jones is 2-2 as a starter beating Tampa Bay and Washington and getting pounded by Minnesota and the Pats. So beat the bad teams, destroyed by the good teams, about what you'd expect from a rookie. Manning was 0-2 losing to Dallas and Buffalo and Buffalo so far is MUCH better than people expected. Manning had a higher completion %, lower INT rate, lower sack rate and a higher passer rating but a lower QBR because he can't run. Eli Manning is the past, Daniel Jones is the future but it's too early to be sure as MMQB said is Jones actually any good, or just better than Eli Manning(or the corpse of Eli as people say these days)? I think he has a chance to be pretty good and he played lots in college and getting Barkley back should really help him out.

    He does have talent and he'll probably do well against us although I'm hoping PP makes a difference. My fear is our run defense is not good and with Barkley back we'll be so concerned about him we'll give up big plays in the pass game.

    Jones is 2-2, but should be 1-3. TB missed like a 30 yd FG at the end to blow that one. I'm far more concerned about Barkley. If he's even close to 80%, then we have no answer for him. That will force us to cheat up against the run, & their TE will run free all day. Let's only hope that our offense can put up 35 points. I have a feeling we'll need all of that & maybe more. Peterson's return will motivate the D, but Barkley is just a monster.

    I don't know. After awhile, the excuses will run out on JR. Good to great QBs still show SOMETHING when they play with bad teams.
