WHAT CAN I SAY? I'VE BEEN A GIANTS FAN FOR 55 YEARS AND THE GAME YESTERDAY WAS THE WORST ONE I EVER SAW THEM PLAY IN ALL THOSE 55 YEARS.
HOPEFULLY, WE CAN ONLY GO UP FROM HERE!
AFTER LAST WEEKS POOR SHOWING AGAINST THE COWBOYS THE GIANTS REALLY NEED TO STEP UP AGAINST DENVER.
THIS MAY POSSIBLY THE LAST TIME ELI AND PEYTON PLAY AGAINST EACH OTHER AND SO FAR ELI HAS YET TO WIN OVER BIG BROTHER.
I' M ALSO LOOKING FORWARD TO THE RETURN OF BRANDON JACOBS. I THINK HE HAS BEEN HUMBLED, YET HAS A FIRE BURNING IN HIS BELLY TO SHOW HE STILL HAS IT. I HAVE A FEELING HE'S GOING TO BE BEAST ON THE FIELD AND A NIGHTMARE TO THE DENVER DEFENSE TODAY.
DON'T FORGET TO FOLLOW MY COMMENTS ON THE ACTION DURING THE GAME ON MY FACEBOOK OR TWITTER. GO GIANTS!!!
It's the final pre-season gamr tonight and coach Tom Coughlin said he expects his projected starters to play between 12-15 snaps, while Bill Belichick may not play his at all. So what's to get excited bout? Hey, it's a football game and it'sthe Giants against the Pats, that's what!

One thing the Giants need to do in those 12 - 15 plays is show Coughlin and us fans they can score a touchdown. With the exception of two plays, the 57-yard Manning-to-Cruz connection in the preseason opener and David Wilson’s 84-yard TD run last week the Giants have barely moved the ball. And last week they only were able to garner 3 points out of 4 Jets turnovers.
The clock is ticking and that season opener with Dallas is getting closer. So some way, some how the Giants need to take those 12-15 more plays and get one, possibly two drives up and down the field tonight and find a way to end one of those drives with a score.
A DISAPPOINTING NIGHT AS FAR AS I WAS CONCERNED. I KNOW IT WAS ONLY PRE-SEASON AND I KNOW THERE WERE 11 GUYS OUT WITH INJURIES, BUT IT WAS FOR BRAGGING RIGHTS AND NOW WE DON'T HAVE THEM. AND I KNOW TOM COUGHLIN FEELS THE SAME WAY, OTHERWISE HE WOULDN'T HAVE MADE THE DECISION THAT TOOK THE GAME INTO OVERTIME.
AND BESIDES LOSING THE GAME I'M ALSO DISAPPOINTED THAT WE LOST STEVIE BROWN WITH A SPRAINED KNEE INJURY. WITH ANTREL ROLLE ALREADY ON THE SIDELINES WITH A SPARINED ANKLE THE GIANTS HAVE TO BE CONCERNED.
AND ALSO DISAPPOINTING WAS THE GIANTS INABILITY TO GET THE BALL INTO THE END ZONE FROM THE RED ZONE. THE 4 TURNOVERS BY THE JETS ONLY RESULTED IN 3 POINTS FOR THE GIANTS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE WAS THE PLAY OF THE DEFENSE FORCING THOSE TURNOVERS AND THE RUNNING OF DAVID WILSON. I ALSO LIKED WHAT I SAW IN THE RUNNING FROM RYAN TORAIN.
