Default 9-4

We have to go 8-5 just to be .500 now....is this team capable of going 8-5 based on what we saw in the first 3 games? I think the offense turned the corner this week but the defense is awful. I think we aren't tough inside, have no pass rusher outside of Mario, and is going to give up a record amount of points this season. 9-4 seems ridiculous at this point, but I've seen stranger things happen.

9-4 does seem completely beyond all reason at this point, but eight of those games are at home. Hmmm.

Yep, at least we aren't the Colts... 0-2 at home. Also, if we beat the shoes on the Sunday, they will be in 4th! That would be awesome.

I'm actually very optimistic about what I've seen so far. I think the team has played decent overall and is nowhere near the disaster-in-waiting the majority of members believe them to be. I see a team that's played inarguably the toughest schedule under the toughest circumstances of any NFL team, without a single home game, and a team that competed well in the last two.

Color my eggs sunny-side up.

No. And I was kidding.

Does it bother anyone else that Gilbride and Eddy both have Superbowl rings?

Not me...they are good coaches that were demonized since they led units that failed at one time or another. It's like being an entrepreneur, most coaches have failed more than they have succeeded.

Notice Gilbride won that ring, NOT running the run-and-shoot offense? They were good coaches as Vinny said, but the one word: Oilers.

So does it bother you guys that Palmer has a ring? And if the Giants keep playing the way they are so will Carr.
