Both teams should have a vanilla playbook  
KeoweeFan : 8/11/2017 1:44 pm : link
for the first game, so I'm anxious to see how Gallman performs when both teams are just running the basics.
I assume it will be a lot more complex during the regular season.

At QB and RB

Who do you think is going to get the most snaps?
when the drafted Webb....  
BillKo : 8/11/2017 2:42 pm : link
..I immediately thought watching exhibition games would again be interesting.

Hoping he gets to play at least a quarter, and not all hand offs.
Looking forward to Engram getting some burn  
mfsd : 8/11/2017 2:43 pm : link
But obviously offenses usually don't open it up much during first preseason game, so hard to see a lot of the younger WRs and CBs behind our big 3

Will be trying to ISO-cam on some trench guys like Tomlinson and the other guys competing to play next to Snacks
I can't see how webb plays a lot given how little work he's had  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/11/2017 2:45 pm : link
I think we're set for a long look at Geno and Josh Johnson.
Eli Manning

annexOPR : 8/11/2017 3:06 pm : link
Hopefully they resolve this QB "battle" sooner rather than later ... I'd love if Webb could get as much "NFL action" as possible this summer - maybe that doesn't happen til last game

... or maybe Webb lights it up and takes the #2 gig (I know - unlikely)
I don't care about the passing game in preseason  
George : 8/11/2017 3:06 pm : link
I'm watching how we block and tackle in the trenches tonight.

Gallman ... and not sure how they play out the QBs. I really want to see Webb get at least 1Q

Coach already said he and Odell won't play.

If memory serves, they didn't play in preseason game 1 last year either.
The Million Dollar Question: Is Webb the Heir Apparent?  
BigBlueWhale : 8/11/2017 3:22 pm : link
The way the NFL is these days, some rookies play well right away. Why not Webb?

That said, as pointed out above, McAdoo could easily go baby steps. This week could be huddling in a real game, calling plays, cadence & footwork handing off. I have a sneaking suspicion they are highly impressed so far and think he legitimately deserves to play.
I watch for halftime...

Figures
Finally  
Bluesbreaker : 8/11/2017 4:41 pm : link
Looking forward to seeing Darian Thompson finally being
healthy again .
Guys like Pinkins Gallman Engram . Also the kick returners
Rojas see what kind of leg strength he has .
Goodson I think he is gonna have a very good season .
Obviously Webb and as always no injuries .
In first game I always wonder if back-up QB's will impact the game.  
wgenesis123 : 8/11/2017 5:05 pm : link
I always watch to see if our depth is as good as we think. In recent years I have prayed that o-line keeps back-up QB's upright long enough to see what they can do.

I am already 2 out of 3 with my predictions...
Looks like there may be some intermittant rain showers

Improvement of the OT's, and looking forward to seeing Engram's  
RGhost : 8/11/2017 5:20 pm : link
speed and cuts matching up against NFL LB and DB's.

Webb, too I guess. But, I expect he will be out there late with the 2nd / 3rd stringers.

Dammm, it's nice having a young, hungry team that is flat out loaded...

None of these guys should be playing. Got to play it smart. They gain NOTHING from playing in this game. Risk way too big compared to reward. McAdoo has to play it smart,I hope!

Eli Manning, JPP, DRC officially ruled out. Not OBJ. See how much he plays. Josh Johnson starts at QB. He'll play behind starting O-line.
Will be watching Goodson, Bromley, Tomlinson  
TMS : 8/11/2017 6:05 pm : link
Engram and Flowers myself. Steelers are a talented, well coached, hard nosed team. Without Rothlisberger they are limited on offense but will bring it everywhere else for a few quarters.
i am hoping everyone comes out healthy,  
32_Razor : 8/11/2017 6:17 pm : link
curious to see if Powe will have a good game
Goodson Is The Key  
wonderback : 8/11/2017 6:22 pm : link
If he brings an 'A' game this defense moves to scary good.
Hope We Get The Giants Announcers  
Jim in Tampa : 8/11/2017 6:22 pm : link
It's tough to watch preseason games with the other team's announcers. Half the time they don't even tell you which Giants player was in on the play and they're also too busy doing stupid sideline interviews with their players.

(I want to see our stupid sideline interivews;>)

agreed..although I think NFL Network usually defaults to the home team if I'm not mistaken.
Let's goooooo!!!!

So excited for Gmen football!!

Pumped to see Engram, Goodson, and Pinkins especially

Steve...it will be the "local" announcers (either NY or Pitt) and NOT NFL Network announcers.
Dumb, meaningless question..

Great. Sit Marshall also. I think he's got enough experience to miss the first preseason game. Can't afford to lose anyone that can't be replaced.
Yikes.
