    David Carr is coming off a benching against a 2-5 Titans team.
    Injuries are plaguing our Offensive Line
    Salaam isn't good even when healthy
    A healthy Wiegart isn't much better
    Strahan and the rest of their DL are monsters
    The Giant secondary and LB corps are also good
    Every team has trouble with the noise in Giant Stadium
    Run game has only come to life in the past two weeks

    This spells disaster for Carr, and even if he doesn't play a terrible game, this board is going to ridicule him. Lets please remember that there will be a lot of factors that go into this game, and everyone remember carr's good season. I hope Kubiak coaches the team well this week and gets them ready to play.







    PS: Did anyone notice that it actually did spell disaster? That was tough :)

    Hey, this is something new! Excuses for Missy David's screw-ups BEFORE he actually does them! Great idea, guy.

    ...same thought crossed my mind...kinda like the 'chicken or the egg question'...what will happen first?--excuses will end or excuses will continue?

    Yeah, you'll have people complaining that you didn't crap a golden egg if you crapped a silver one. Whining will never change among fickle fans.
    I don't expect us to win this game. (I can always hope, though!) New York is one of the best balanced teams in the NFL today. I am looking for improvements in pass protection (badly needed) and a better ground game. and maybe our CBs trying to intercept a few balls.

    Not sure where you got that from, but I just checked, and it's supposed to be bright and sunny. Game time temp 45 degrees give or take a couple degrees.

    Actually there is a 38 1/2% chance of a meteor shower so that will probably hinder his throwing ability. :rolleyes:

    Actually I think Carr might surprise yall this weekend. He is facing a tough Giants D after a benching and many of yall expect him to fold like a house of cards. Thus you have set your expectations super low. I think he might come out firing and surprise you. We may not win, but who knows, maybe this benching will be helpful.

    :thumbup That was great!!!! If you guys can establish the running game, it should open up the play action for David and you could be in it until the end. If you can't, I feel sorry for David...

    hm.........

    First, the Giants offense isn't that great. They've got TikiBarber & Plaxico... but that's about it. If we allow them to an early lead, it'll be a long day trying to stop Tiki. So this game is on our defense more than any game we've played yet.

    Stop Tiki.

    Defensively, they haven't been lighting up the league in sacks, or against the run. We should be able to keep Strahan & co. off David. & We'll probably get another 100 yard rushing game. If we get the lead, look for a lot of running. If we fall behind, even by 3 points, forget about running the ball.

    IMHO, we should stay committed to the run through the first three Qtrs, if we aren't down by more than 14 points.... Kubiak hasn't shown that fortitude. If we are down by 14 or more going into the 4th...... yeah, it's time to air it out. but before then, we need to keep our offense on the field, and theirs off. Even if that means 3 yards and a cloud of dust.

    Again, not because they are that good offensively, but because they are a big play streaky offense..... if you ever let them get started, they are hard to stop, so we have to keep the ball out of their hands, so they have less opportunity to get started.

    lol........ I didn't say we were going to win.

    I'm saying their little 4 game win streak was against Washington(2-5), Atlanta(5-2, but they played poorly against the Giants), Dallas(4-3, also played poorly, remember Bledsoe??), & TampaBay(2-5)...

    Osi Umenyiora won't be playing, Strahan has one sack against Washington, and 2 against Bledsoe.... none were very impressive.

    They give up 96 rushing yards a game, just like Jacksonville.

    Offensively, Tiki has been solid, Plax has been making one big play after another, and Eli isn't the model of consistency, and he's been sacked 15 times this year. So it's not like their OL is all that.

    We're not supposed to win this game. Nobody gives us even a fighting chance. We are not even underdogs in this one, because underdogs are usually given a chance at 'any given Sunday'.

    That being said, what do we have to lose by going all out? Maybe this team rallies and finds something deep within itself. Maybe they circle the wagons and play like a team instead of a group of individual players.

    It is highly unlikely that we win this game...but the Giants are still human, capable of failure and overlooking us, so you never know. I'd like to think our team has a heart, somewhere deep below the suffering that constant losing brings...and maybe, just maybe, Kubiak can inspire these guys to rise above themselves and do what everyone says is impossible.

    It sure would make Monday a lot nicer around here. :howdy:

    B.S. That's just what they expect us to do...
    what they won't expect in about a million years is for us to go 4 wide and no huddle right off the bat.
    What they hell... we do pretty good on our scripted plays, and if we're successful, the running game should open up nicely.

    I'll leave it up to y'all to decide if I'm joking or not...

    Eli is either going to have a career day, or he'll stink like a dead cat in a septic tank. There's no middle ground with the young Manning.
