Giants vs. Bears: Sights and Sounds (Check out Barkley)

mittenedman : 12/5/2018 8:26 am
As always - a couple of things jump out about Saquon Barkley.

1) The intangibles: Barkley going to Ogletree after his pick 6 and immediately challenging him to get another one. (It sounds genuine....that's the key.) This guy chooses to inspire everyone around him.

2) The f#cking tangibles: Look at his big overtime run at the 4:24 mark - it's a great view from the defense's perspective. Barkley takes the pitch, stutter steps and is just gone in the blink of an eye. Imagine trying to defend that? The burst, top speed, balance and sheer "want to" is off the charts. He's an alien. A 230# piece of granite can't move like that. It's absurd. I kept going back and rewinding it thinking it's sped up for effect, but it's not.

Game on the line, he runs around the #1 D in the NFL like they're standing still.

for Christmas earlier this week. Made sure to get them a little big so they can grow into them, because I expect them to be wearing them for a couple years hopefully :)

Tuesday night was Chanukah Barkley jersey night in my household for my 10 year old son and 14 yo daughter. My son says "you know this one will last because Barkley isn't going anywhere!"
I am proud to wear my Barkley jersey

highlights but they should have included the 4th-and-goal TD to Beckham.
Thanks for sharing this...

Barkley defies physics with his size, speed and burst - every play is highlight reel worthy. His two runs at the most critical moments of this game - the end of the first half and in OT, made a bunch of NFL pro bowl defenders look like high school freshmen...

You know how you change team culture? Draft a Saquon Barkley and simply let him lead with talent and character by example. Despite another disastrous season in the wilderness, hope is back again in East Rutherford. And he wears #26...
Did you guys

see Odell's TD celebration after the TD catch? Me neither...flipped the ball to the ref and celebrated with his teammates. Is there a part of Barkley that is starting to influence Odell? Personally I love most of his TD celebrations most of them have a meaning that many do not get and maybe there was some meaning behind just flipping it to the ref but I just found it interesting.

Good catch. I'm an old fart, but I love the fact that Barkley doesn't have a dance.
Why did they skip the Eli TD pass?

Also, Papa got way too excited on that last Bears TD.
and way to dispassionate over Rosas' OT FG!

Used to read that on what seemed like every thread on a daily basis, sarcastically of course.

Haven't heard it in a couple of weeks. Wonder why?

does really seem to genuinely care about being the HC of the Giants and care about this group...that's nice to see
Pretty weak effort this week by whoever

Spot on. And the only true way to change team culture -- talent, character and leadership not from cliche lectures or rah rah speeches, but by example. Beckham performing in the realm of Barkley is a thing of genius...

I'm just writing that in the hopes Greg sees it and replies.

I like Greg as a poster, and busting his chops can come easy.

Love you Greg!
You like Greg...???

Well I guess stranger things have happened on this board...
Greg is a smart
