Think there's a shot to beat Dallas?

Route 9 : 12/7/2017 8:20 pm
This one is gonna be a weird one Sunday. A 1pm game vs the Cowboys? I'm hoping the Giants win this one to send Dallas 6-7 and dash their playoff hopes for good. At least beat the Cowboys, right? I have Dallas barely winning this one, 23-20 or something else close like that.

Hell, Eli's first win came in a scrap fest in 2004 with two bad teams playing against the Cowboys. Will this game finish with a Giants win and send a stadium filled with thousands of NJ Cowboy fans home from MetLife with an L?
I have a strange feeling that I think

we win.
if we win it's going to be something like 10-9

Really think so. Their pass rush has been very good lately.
Regardless of the bump in energy with Eli taking the field,  
Diver_Down : 12/7/2017 8:31 pm : link
it is still the same practice squad receivers. The OL is worse than ever with a fork in Pugh's back and Wheeler having a headache, we'll be treated to a lineup of Hart, Halapio, Jones, Jerry, Flowers. On defense, we still can't generate pressure. Every linebacker from high school is on IR while Dez will look like he found the fountain of youth against whatever scrub that we can find lying in the gutter on the street. We'll keep it competitive for awhile, but at some point, we no longer have the talent to match-up.

At this point in the season, it is fine to root for a win, but at most we can hope is to be competitive in the games without being embarrassed.
Eli vs Dallas  
jbeintherockies : 12/7/2017 8:31 pm : link
What is Eli's record against Dallas? I think he has won more than he has lost. I also think the owner and coaching staff are really working on winning this one. Might be a good game.
Now that I think about it,  
Diver_Down : 12/7/2017 8:37 pm : link
we better hope the OL stays healthy. I don't think there are any reserves left. Bisno is on the practice squad. Have we signed anyone with a pulse that can fill in?
There wil be a sugar rush in the beginning but  
UESBLUE : 12/7/2017 8:39 pm : link
we just dont have the personnel
I'm going into this game thinking no chance Giants win.  
Blue21 : 12/7/2017 8:57 pm : link
Hope I'm wrong but if we lose it's a step close to a better pick.
When you've got Eli Manning....  
Britt in VA : 12/7/2017 9:09 pm : link
there's always a shot.
Home game and cold

If the Giants win the turnover battle they win.

Yes! Yes! There's the spirit! Let's beat these weenies.
I think Eli should  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 12/7/2017 9:20 pm : link
Just CA his own plays. Run the 2 min offense and roll. Sully sucks as a play caller too.
There's always a shot, but realistically no

You stop their run game you have a good chance  
BillT : 12/7/2017 9:25 pm : link
They ran all over the Skins so that won't be easy. The Giants O will still have to do something positive but our D either stops the run or the Cowboys will score 30+.
Any given sunday....but odds are we lose  
Banks : 12/7/2017 9:27 pm : link
They learned not to abandon the run with Morris. If the team that faced the skins shows up, we are losing big. I'd take the reverse teaser in this game

and with his lifetime win loss record as a starter inching closer to 500 that shot is more like a coin toss!
No.....  
OBJRoyal : 12/7/2017 9:40 pm : link
Don't see it happening. "Bump in energy"?? WTF is that??
Have you actually looked at who the Giants  
blueblood : 12/7/2017 10:00 pm : link
have on the field.. Nothing at the LB spot.. Nothing on the outside at receiver.. a piss poor OL... The Giants are still the same crappy team they have been all year.
Sign their fucking execution  
TommytheElephant : 12/7/2017 10:04 pm : link
And send them to the fucking chair!

GO BLUE
Getting flashbacks to Coughlin's last game (vs Philly).  
jogo1 : 12/7/2017 10:09 pm : link
Think it'll be a decent showing, but ultimately they fall to a better (less decimated) team.
We'll win  
CT Charlie : 12/7/2017 11:46 pm : link
if the defense scores 16.
I don't think so  
ZogZerg : 12/8/2017 6:16 am : link
I don't recognize many of the names on defense and Shepard is dinged again.
Please,  
Doomster : 12/8/2017 8:49 am : link
do not bet the house on this one....

BBI already has a lot of homeless fans this season.....
I've been advocating losses to get the best draft position but  
Jeever : 12/8/2017 10:13 am : link
I'd love to kick the Cowboys a$$es on Sunday and then continue with our draft positioning.
Emotion and hustle may carry them early....  
Racer : 12/8/2017 10:29 am : link
...but who on this roster is going to whip the ass of the guy in front of them over the course of 4 quarters?
Dallas  
Giantslifer : 12/8/2017 2:48 pm : link
The SS jerry Jones is sinking almost as fast as SS Mara. It would be perfect "revenge" if Giants were to launch the final missile in JJ. I'm sure Mara would get a kick out of shutting down JJ for another year.
Both teams stink... Eli throws TD with .03 left in game to nameless WR.
dallas fans scream for Romo, Dak and Zeke go on off season tears, both suspended .Somehow coach boy survives!
The Giant defense  
OldPolack : 12/8/2017 2:59 pm : link
will be on the field all day and they will finally give up.
Realistically I don't see the Giants being competitive.
highly unlikely

BlackburnBalledOut : 12/8/2017 6:31 pm : link
dallas is reeling without their run game, dak is really exposed....theyre dreadful in the 2nd half

i think eli should be calling the offense, let him run his show, and i pray with numbnuts gone he starte throwing the ball downfield
Nope  
Thegratefulhead : 12/8/2017 6:34 pm : link
One team fighting for it's playoff life. The other 2-10 and decimated by injuries. Recipe for disaster, Eli might get killed.
Of course there is  
Joey in VA : 12/8/2017 6:59 pm : link
A huge cloud over the team just got washed away. Dallas offense is a mess, we have the pieces on defense to take one to the house and shut the run down completely. We however can't score and unless Mike Sullivan dusts off the 2011 playbook and he specifically said he wasn't going to today, we won't score more than 10 points if that. Anything can happen this week, literally anything. I'm really wanting a victory, I know it fs up the draft but dammit I hate losing and I'd like to see a decent week at 1925.
That's just it  
djm : 12/8/2017 7:06 pm : link
Before looking at the Giants problems take a look at dallas. They have their own issue to deal with. I'd give dallas the edge but not by that much. If the Giants come out with a lot of energy along the dline, and I'd bet they do, dallas will have their hands full.

The Cowboys offense has gone the way of ours without their best player.

7-3 NYFG.
