The Natural : 8/16/2013 7:22 pm : link

I think I will get tired of this real fast.
Brady

oh my Lord, this man is on fire
Maybe the Eagles D  
Gumbo : 8/16/2013 8:26 pm : link
Isn't as bad as they looked last week. This is the second week in a row Brady has knifed thought a D on their opening drive.
It was all running plays against the Eagles though

i hope Gilbride is watching NE  
gtt350 : 8/16/2013 8:29 pm : link
we are dinosaurs compared to this tempo
the new eagles cb they signed from the ravens  
Neverend : 8/16/2013 8:30 pm : link
said that the pats were having fun with their defense in practice, toying with them. its not like the pats have dynamic weapons all over on offense. but its fair to give their secondary a break given how good brady is and all
Pats look pretty good. It's preseason but AFC East is more of the same  
Mason : 8/16/2013 8:36 pm : link
Pats and everyone else.
You know Brady is good but  
wgenesis123 : 8/16/2013 8:41 pm : link
the Giants find ways to beat his butt. The Ravens too. The AFC East teams play him every year twice. They should be more competitive against the Patriots.
Nobody runs offense like New England except..  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/16/2013 8:47 pm : link
Chip Kelly. They have a lot of Chip Kelly concepts in there. The two coaches are friends. Belichick studied his ideas a few seasons ago and made it part of what the Pats do.
Very true they ran on the Eagles.  
Gumbo : 8/16/2013 8:48 pm : link
I didn't see Philly and Carolina this week how did they look on D? Hopefully I'll catch a replay this weekend.

As a big college football fan I'll be very innterested to see how Chip does didn't illy. I've always wondered how schemes like the triple option would fare when both teams are equal athletically.

That said I hope it's a spectacular failure.
The vikings new unis  
Adam XLII : 8/16/2013 8:49 pm : link
looks great
Buffalo looks good.  
arcarsenal : 8/16/2013 8:58 pm : link
That team is FAST. I think they're finally on the right track again.

I didn't even know the Vikings changed their unis until I turned this game on.
Vikes new unis  
endwerc : 8/16/2013 9:06 pm : link
look good except for the matte helmets.
Of course kenny alpert  
95cobraguy : 8/16/2013 9:28 pm : link
Had to mention ogletrees huge game vs the giants last year on opening night
Did he miss one last week too?  
wgenesis123 : 8/16/2013 9:37 pm : link
Gostowski
man flynn looks bad  
Neverend : 8/16/2013 9:43 pm : link
you saw some of it against dallas, just slow progression reading... slow eyes, slow react, slow recognition. looks awful, but its preseason with no game planning I guess
Pats look amazing.. why...  
prdave73 : 8/16/2013 9:58 pm : link
Is it their young talent? Is Tom Brady? imo I don't really think so.. Is it their Coaching staff? IS it their Offensive coordinator?? Why is it that the entire offense can lose all their talented players and still perform better then most teams?? It's amazing.. Their offensive schemes are just to good?? We are here with al the talent in the world and struggle in the Redzone??
The two biggest reasons for their  
Gumbo : 8/16/2013 10:17 pm : link
Success haven't changed. Wdhile they have missed on some personel moves they don't dwell on it. That probably come with the credibility of 3 Superbowls. In short Bill and Tom keep them winning.IMO.
David Douglas with a heck of a catch, maybe  
Mason : 8/16/2013 10:28 pm : link
BBI implosion 3..2..1
No catch... Giants with the reprieve  
Mason : 8/16/2013 10:31 pm : link
:)
Mason bbi implosion back on track  
NewYorkGiants : 8/16/2013 10:39 pm : link
David Douglas Touchdown
Agree..  
prdave73 : 8/16/2013 10:44 pm : link
I also personally think it's their offensive line as well as their entire coaching staff(Bill). They really focus on keeping the offensive line top notch, they never cease to keep it top priority. They make sure they have great offensive coordinator to keep that offense flowing smoothly, and leave the defense to Bill.. I always say, Defense wins Championships, but your offensive line gets you there..
Tebow with the INT  
95cobraguy : 8/16/2013 10:47 pm : link
Jeez that was brutal.
Good thing we stuck with Barden and JJ...  
Ace718 : 8/16/2013 10:52 pm : link

I would like to see JJ get some real reps on Sunday  
Mason : 8/16/2013 11:06 pm : link
Drafting Randle and Cruz taking the slot receiver spot. How could JJ show anything other than trying to beat out Nicks, Cruz and Randle? Giants just gave Cruz big money and want to probably give Nicks big money. If you are JJ, do you really believe there is honest competition at the WR spot at this point?
The KR/PR jobs are wide open for JJ

In your wildest dreams, do you think JJ is even close to Randle, who is 3rd on the totem pole? Or even Murphy?

As someone said, his best shot is ST's....
