    Then what the heck is the pre-season for? Especially when they're implementing a new system, yet hardly any of the "starters" played enough in pre-season.

    We are who we are. A team fighting Buffalo for first pick in the 2019 draft.

    I’m not saying Wilks is a bad HC or going to be one, but I’m not a fan either.

    He seems way too conservative, thus the hire of MCCoy, and you can’t be that way in today’s NFL.

    It was a bad hire.

    You can say it brother, because it’s true.

    He hired a pathetic OC which will lead to a awful debut season.

    It might be his only season too if Keim is fired & the new GM wants a new HC.

    We should’ve went after a young-minded OC like DeFilippo as the HC. It can still happen.

    I was on the Shurnur bandwagon but would’ve been okay with DeFillipo.

    Today’s game is offense. That’s also why I thought Vrabel was an awful choice. At least Wilks coached a top notch defense. Vrabel led Houston to the bottom, or near the bottom, in many categories.

    I'm with you Jetstream. I give every team through the 4th regular season game to show their true identity good or bad.

    With that said, this is a rebuilding year and based off what we saw on opening day I'm not expecting to see many wins this season. What I do want to see is improvement as the season progresses.

    Shurmur's Giants didn't look that great yesterday.

    I'm only giving them until game 3. After what I saw Sunday it's NOT very likely we beat the Rams. If we play bad against the Bears I won't be holding my breath for success. The only thing that might allow me to get my hopes up after that would be major personnel changes (ie: Rosen, WRs, FA signings on D, etc). We were able to find some players on D with enough tread left for one more season before, and while I think our holes are too big that such stopgaps would work this year, there is a chance.

    They were playing the best defense in the league and a strong SB contender.

    Their mistake was taking Barkley and deciding to ride out another year with the decrepit Eli Manning.

    Wow . Some of us saw the handwriting on the wall very early on. We stunk. As sure as I was that it was going to be a long and terrible year I feel completely different about the 2019 season.

    And? I suppose you have never been wrong about a sports team before?
