    @Metzger Meister

    I'm sorry but I'm rooting for the Raiders to go 0-16 because I don't like Gruden.

    HOLY SHIT that field goal was close.

    Wonder if Kahlil Mack could have helped them in this tough low scoring game.

    16 of them were in the Vikings/Packers game.

    Nope, the Browns kicker missed 4 all by himself

    Rumors of improvement to the Giants' offensive line have been greatly exaggerated

    Being a Giants fan is hard sometimes. Seems like it's impossible to know what to expect from them game to game. I never know whether to dread a game or feel good about it and I usually pick the wrong feeling.

    Last time a KC qb threw 6 tds in a game was Len Dawson in 1964.

    I'm going to watch Dr. K's Exotic Animal Hospital for awhile.

    Oh, look... A squirrel has a scrotul hematoma and his penis is stuck in the out position.

    Now they are lasering his balls.

    This is preferable to the Giants game at this point.

    I almost feel bad because yikes that offensive line is dire.

    Like, I thought our line sucked last year against Atlanta, but this? This is maybe the worst I can ever remember seeing.

    If it makes you feel better, the cowboys are still going to suck ass and go 8-8 this year because we can only score on 64 yard pass plays where the safety trips.

    Our offense is FG and/or bust

    I mean, since the 64 yard TD, The Giants defense has been solid. Especially considering the offense is doing nothing.

    Giants have some life

    Giants probably win 6 games this year.

    They have some amazing pieces but that O-Line...

    I think they are close to being a very good team...not going to happen this year though.

    They're easily a 10-11 win team with an offensive line that is at or above league average. Their defense is good enough it seems to keep games manageable.

    The Giants really fucked themselves by drafting Barkley.

    I still don't agree with this. There will be more quarterbacks out there next year and Eli still has a few good years left in him.

    it's a huge risk just because of the low positional value of running back and how generally short their careers are. but obviously it could work out if they manage to pick up a quarterback still in upcoming drafts. but like if darnold ends up really good and the giants whiff on a qb in the next year or two? probably set that franchise back half a decade.

    Can’t ever guarantee your organization will be in the position to draft that high with a quarterback class this good. When you have the chance, you gotta take it, especially when Eli’s been washed for two years now. I could squint my eyes and see the justification for taking a running back that high for a super bowl push in a stacked team’s closing window, but this current giants team is several pieces away from that and they’re just spinning their wheels.

    This QB class was so good that you didn't even need that high a draft pick to get a good prospect. Lamar Jackson was taken at #32!

    2017 had three big QB prospects: Trubisky (3), Mahomes (10), Watson (12).
    2016: Goff (1), Wentz (2), Lynch (26)
    2015: Winston (1), Mariota (2)
    2014: Bortles (3), Manziel (22), Bridgewater (32)
    2013: No 1st round QB picks.
    2012: Luck (1), Griffin III (2), Tannehill (8), Weeden (22)
    2011: Newton (1), Locker (8), Gabbert (10), Ponder (12)
    2010: Bradford (1), Tebow (25)

    It's hard to find a franchise QB beyond the midpoint of the first round. The Giants would just have to get another early pick to grab a franchise QB somehow, either via trade or losing. So the question is kinda, is Saqoun so good and, say, Darnold so bad that it's going to be better to grab Saquon now and a QB at #2 in 2019 or Darnold and then someone else at #2 in 2019? Or is the plan to either go without a franchise QB or to find a QB somehow later in the draft?

    Cuz I think this is a lot different than teams passing on Mahomes or Watson earlier; the Giants passed on FIVE first-round QBs. This wasn't just missing a prospect; this was actively saying we don't need a QB.

    I haven't watched a single minute of football this year and I've been a happier and healthier person. The Raiders will win like 4 games, enough so that they get mediocre draft placement and then they'll draft some really fast dude who can't catch or some big giant dude that can't block/tackle and the dreary trudge will continue.

    Right, because the Jags' D hasn't been a monster all game and Bortles and company haven't been playing some damn good football on offense.
