So let's get the exaggerations out of the way, shall we?

It's preseason...which means 'tis the season for overreaction.

Who will be our next James Jones? You know, a guy who plays well in preseason who we cut and people will bitch about it all season.

Who will be our Curtis Deloatch? A guy who will suck in preseason but still make the roster.

What play this preseason will be the Ron Dayne emerging from a pile to run it in for a TD? I think that was against the Chiefs in the first preseason game.

And might we have the next Victor Cruz on our roster...

But yes, 'tis the time for overreaction. So get it out of your systems, people.

If Saquon only rushes for 3 YPC tonight, you bet some people on here will bitch that we didn't take a QB.

If Eli throws a wobbly INT, START WEBB! ELI'S GRIP IS TOO WEAK!

If John Jerry sees time with the starters, people may go on suicide watch.

What other ones are there?
Flowers is young so it is okay he sucks. He'll get better.

That's not an overreaction. That's the truth.

looking competent on offense and unscathed injury-wise, I'll panic and think I've entered the upside down world.
It took awhile,

but I finally am able to resist opening most overreaction threads. They’re stupid and illogical, imv
the offense

is so vanilla, easy to defend. Different coach, same playbook.

Can the Giants not run a f-ing screen play?

the OL is going to get Eli killed.

Eli is a bottom 5 QB in the league, inaccurate and makes boneheaded plays.

the defense can't get any pressure on the QB.

Giants haven't had a good LB since Armstead.

If we lose to the Browns tonight, we're going 0-16

Barkley gets stuffed for negative runs  
Jimmy Googs : 8/9/2018 4:28 pm : link
on first and second down.

Eli follows it up by throwing a pick-6 after Flowers whiffs on his block.

BBI loses their mind on in-game thread...
We looked like shit last preseason  
Mike from SI : 8/9/2018 4:28 pm : link
and that carried over to the regular season. So, yeah, I'd like us not to look like shit and I will be disappointed otherwise.
A guy who's under the radar but interests me is Jawill Davis

from Bethune Cookman. He runs good routes, ran a sub 4.4 40 and is fairly strong.
Worst First Play vs Best First Play on offense.

Flowers whiffs. Manning is hit. The ball is fumbled for a defensive scoop and score.

Handoff to Barley who runs through the RIGHT side for a 75 yard TD.
I'm looking forward to the

"This offense is completely fucking lost" posts sometime during the early 2nd quarter of the second preseason game.
We can't even get...

a 7th round pick for Eli.

Rosas couldn't kick a bad habit.

Flowers got a hold of Quinn's pictures!

Ralph Vacchianno says the Giants will probably play 16 regular season games this year. In a flash followup... 8 games will be at MetLife.
Eli is getting our WR's hurt by throwing high all the time  
PatersonPlank : 8/9/2018 5:14 pm : link
The management should be fired for not investing in the OL

Barkley is a bust, we should have drafted Darnold

Eli hasn't been good since 2011, and even then he was lucky
Baker Mayfield runs and throws all over Giants D and
