BBI Giants-Eagles Game Preview Now Available

Eric from BBI : Admin : 10/10/2018 1:56 pm
FYI...
Preview: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants, October 11, 2018 - ( New Window )
Eagles only have 3 active safeties  
dep026 : 10/10/2018 2:12 pm : link
with Graham out. They are starting a rookie and the backup is an UNDA rookie.

They only have 4 LBs as well. With an UDFA backing up as well.

God their defense could be riped for the picking. But their DL will probably dominate our OL!
Tomorrow night is a night

I wish our OL is up to the task of running Saquon right up their butts.

Supposed to be raining, I would love to see 25+ carries 150+ yards and a couple scores.

I don't know if it's a Pennsylvania thing but I had a bunch of Eagles fans tell me this offseason they were hoping NYG went QB instead of Barkley near the top of the draft.

Dep, I hate to simplify things too much... but we keep losing to them because we can't block them. That's where the game will be won or loss.
Your comment about Eli, Eric, is exactly how I felt...  
Thatís Gold, Jerry : 10/10/2018 2:21 pm : link
I screamed Eli you stupid SOB when he threw that second pick then I think one of the analysts said it might have been Shepard's fault. Then Eli brings us back...how many times in 15 years have we had those emotions!

The thing about running the ball is it has to be a mentality, you have to be committed to it and I see the Giants moving too easily away from it. Imagine if those guys up front could just do a stalemate. If Barkley could just get half a second he would go wild. I see the next big move being either Greco or Omameh. Either they improve drastically or I think they will be out of there.

And, again, you mention special teams which I totally agree with and have since 2007 when that SOB Quinn joined this team. I swear we will not be better until that punk is gone. Like Flowers, his presence alone is stinking up the whole team...clean house, fire his ass.
I work and live in Southeastern PA and a big Penn St fan myself  
GiantBlue : 10/10/2018 2:25 pm : link
My co-worker Eagle fans pretty much all have voiced to me at one point or another since the draft that they are sorry we drafted their favorite Penn St. player. One jerky came up to me today and said that he roots for Barkley and is glad we are still 1-4 with him doing well.

Please, Football God that have abandoned us it seems.....Please come back to the Giants. All is forgiven. We need you! We have suffered some unbelievable losses, especially to these Eagles. Please smile your love on our sideline!

Ngata is out. Barnett is banged up. Graham hasnt been as good.

This is a VERY winnable game.
I didn't realize  
NoPeanutz : 10/10/2018 2:42 pm : link
that in the 60+FG game from last year, in which Shepard's TD was thrown out, it sure sounds like the ref is our good friend Jerome Boger.
#87 TD overturned - ( New Window )
Brawl  
Thegratefulhead : 10/10/2018 2:51 pm : link
They should make this a brawl. Come out with 2 TEs, one them an extra OL and block your man until you are certain you hear the whistle, make them blow it again. The Eagle D is going to come out with their ears pinned back, tire them out by leaning on them, lay on them after the run, make them work to get up. Get NASTY, keep running Barkley, 20+ running attempts for him plus 6-7 targets in the passing game.
Great review...  
M.S. : 10/10/2018 3:11 pm : link

...dead on!

If the Giants come out flat on Thursday, lay an egg, I don 't think the Head Coach has a long term career with the Giants.

This is by far his biggest challenge in a do or die situation.

Show us what you got Pat Shumur.

This is a very winnable game except for the fact that the Giants can't beat the Eagles. Other than that, everything else is looking up.
I thought Engram was a go this game  
Jints in Carolina : 10/10/2018 3:18 pm : link
No?
I actually think the Giants win this game

This game will be won or lost in the trenches.  
kdog77 : 10/10/2018 3:20 pm : link
Watched the Eagles-Vikings highlights and I think the Vikes stole one from Philly. Vikes D rushed 4 and dropped 7 all game, but could not stop Wentz from hitting his receivers. The Eagles front 7 also constantly blitzed and blew past Vikes terrible OL to pressure Cousins, who made some great throws to Thielen and Diggs in coverage. Eagles appear really fast to the ball and pursued sideline to sideline. I did not see them give up many big plays either to Vikes skill players.

I don't think we can reasonably expect Eli to take advantage of the Eagles inexperienced secondary if Eagles DL/LB are bringing blitzes and pressure on every play. Pounding the run game will only work if Giants OL can pick up run blitzes or bring in extra blockers to help the TE seal the edge b/c we have not done that in 5 games when other D stack 8 in the box.

The Giants DL simply needs to get more pressure otherwise Wentz will have all day to find open receivers. I was expecting more exotic blitz packages from the new regime, but feels like they play more zone due to lack of confidence in the DBs.

Yeah I just noticed that.
I think the Eagles will be up for this game  
joe48 : 10/10/2018 3:48 pm : link
I expect big time pressure stunts etc and this OL has shown to be inconsistent in pass blocking and unable to open holes for Barkley. Why does that change?. Special teams has been poor. Wentz has been rounding into form after a slow start. Eagles by 2 touchdowns in a game that is not close.
Good stuff  
ChicagoMarty : 10/10/2018 3:49 pm : link
Let me add we need to cut down on stupid penalties. They absolutely killed us Sunday maybe even more than the turnovers.

This is and has been the case for the most part  
micky : 10/10/2018 7:19 pm : link
of these thurs night games. Home team usually wins (short week, home team dont have to travel - this case not much factor for eagles as they're down the pike, etc)

However, eagles front 4 and this ol..has always been the issue. This looks like an ugly very low scoring game..9-6 eagles

Spot on review ..  
Bluesbreaker : 10/10/2018 9:08 pm : link
Time to get the monkey off our back , I hate these thursday
night games . Home field has been good for these games no reason we can't win and as always its Philly's D-line that has been tough on us .
Eli last year lit them up but Foles one upped him with 4 TD tosses . I think were gonna stifle there run game and force a few mistakes .
How about just winning a home game........  
Simms11 : 10/10/2018 9:21 pm : link
Itís time that homefield become an advantage! Crowd needs to help. Going into Philly is also a nightmare and this team plays like it there. It would be nice to win some home games, especially against the much hated Eagles!
Eagles game  
stretch234 : 10/11/2018 7:00 am : link
Went back to last 5 games with Eagles - really interesting on offense

61 Drives

15 TD's
9 FG's
1 MFG
7 Punts inside Eagles 45 (4 inside the 40)
5 Downs inside Eagles 37
2 Int's inside Eagles territory
1 fumble inside Eagles 10

40 of 61 drives

Moving the ball has really not been an issue - the usual suspects of way too many FG's, leaving way too much on the field and the defense unable to stop the Eagles from scoring TD's

What does it all mean, probably nothing - they seem do enough to lose
Barkely catching passes  
skifaster : 10/11/2018 7:54 am : link
This seems like a great game to throw a lot of quick passes to Barkley. Eagles are going to wnat to pressure Manning and their LBs and secondary are pretty thin right now.

The giants lose the battle of the trenches every week. On Offense they can't run the ball nor pass protect, on D they have the weakest pass rush in the league. So that does not bode well...
Eric nailed it in the preview.  
mittenedman : 10/11/2018 9:07 am : link
16 of 20. And many of these games either ruined the Giants season or propelled the Eagles to any success they had.

The question is simple? Are the Giants still - as Carl Banks succinctly put it - a "Get Right Team"?

The Eagles are flailing. Are the Giants the perfect opponent for them to get back on track? Or do we crush them with our boot heel, sending them down while we trend upwards? These rivalry games have a way of crushing or propelling, depending on which side you're on.

It's about time we used this game as a springboard, instead of them.
Great review as usual  
Rover : 10/11/2018 9:14 am : link
One typo, last sentence of 'Giants on Special Teams' I think you were saying 'they' and not 'the.'
Giants need to play with physicality tonight.....  
Simms11 : 10/11/2018 9:38 am : link
They can't let their fronts get pushed around or it will be a very long evening and we'll be talking about the 2019 draft next week! Let's change the scenario against this Eagles team and beat them at their game. We've won only 4 games against this team in almost 10 freaking years!!!! That's just a ridiculous embarrassing statistic. There's always something odd that happens in this game and it normally ends up in the Eagles favor. Anyway, Go Giants!
As an aside  
jpennyva : 10/11/2018 10:26 am : link
We know the NFL is not going to get rid of Thursday night games but why in hell do they refuse to schedule them after teams' bye weeks?! It would make the most sense and cut down on possible injury. Surely the NFL has algorithms that could work such a schedule out. I realize that common sense is NOT the NFL's strong suit but still. The shorter week after a Monday night game I can live with but I really hate the Thursday night games aside from the fact it's a game I'm guaranteed to see since I live outside the Giants' market. Nothing the NFL does should baffle me but this does.
I expect an ugly Thursday game  
UberAlias : 10/11/2018 11:02 am : link
with at least one major player lost for season due to injury and controversial call by refs influencing the outcome. Book it.
Eagles  
Dragon : 10/11/2018 11:25 am : link
Only have three active safeties do the Giants have more than seven real NFL players? Look at this roster itís amazing the lack of talent on this team this game wonít be won in the trenches it will be won by the team with the much better talent period, donít kid yourselves itís not the Giants.

Just spoke to someone who claims to know one a lawyer who works for the Eagles..she says with the rain and likely slippery conditions, Foles is starting, not Wentz.

mittenedman : 10/11/2018 1:12 pm : link
I've never seen that scenario play out before (sitting a QB due to inclement weather). That really goes to show you they are probably putting him back on the field too soon if they are thinking that way.

If Wentz does play, I'd attack if I'm the Giants. Screw pocket contain. Make him move and put a few smacks on him.
If ever there was a week

Where you wanted a Thursday night game it was after that loss. Hopefully they come out angry and stay that way until the game is in the bag.
