Post your Giants/Non Giants overreactions in here. No judging. Clear your head.

The Giants are going 4-12 this year.

Lamar Jackson is doing things the NFL has never seen.

Browns are still the Browns.

Cowboys and Eagles play in the NFC Title Game, Giants 3-13.

Saquon Barkley wastes two prime seasons on a dog of a team.
Giants did hold Dallass to 89 yards rushing

Ryan Connelly and Oshane Ximines did each have a TFL.

So as bad as it was it wasn't all bad.
The Dolphins might end up being  
figgy2989 : 9/9/2019 9:57 am : link
the worst team in NFL History.

Larry Fitzgerald and Desean Jackson found the fountain of youth and made a lot of Fantasy teams happy when they got them in the late rounds (although I would bet not a lot of them actually started them).

I think Redskins looked good (even though they were beaten by a more talented squad at the end). They have been drafting well and looked well prepared. Not saying theyíre going to the playoffs and even wit their underwhelming re ievers I wouldnt be surprised if they have a better season than us.
The NYG are still the worst team in the East

Giants
Dolphins
Browns
Steelers
Packers and Bears offenses
Jets blow 16-0 late 3rd quarter lead
Lions blow 18 point lead with less than 10 minutes left
Jacksonville defense
Atlanta offense

I'm sure I missed some.

Point is it's early in the year, none of these teams know who they are yet. Except the Patriots. Belichek is a freak.

Trade Barkley for a haul of picks and draft TrevLaw.

Carson53 : 9/9/2019 10:27 am : link
with the decision making here, is lets bring in
'Betcher's guys', well lets see Martin, Golden, and now
Bethea....The problem is these guys can't play anymore,
what difference does it make if they are
'Betcher's guys'. In Martin's case, they gave him a pretty good deal too!
The other two, well, you get what you pay for.
Maybe the wrong thread?

...only without a good defense.

This is what it feels like to suck year after year - what it was like when I first became a Giant fan back in the Carter years.

17 points (and 10 when it still mattered)

Connelly made a couple plays right? I was looking for snap counts - he looked good. I have to rewatch the game but X man having a tfl is encouraging. Time to get the young guys more time out there.

I started in 1980. This is brutal. Thank god I was in med school during the lost 90's and didn't follow

Connelly needs to play more either for 'Tree or for Davis.
What do you want the Giants to do?  
loafin : 9/9/2019 10:47 am : link
We are in year 2 of a rebuild.
The Giants felt that Daniel Jones should be the choice at 6.
They drafted defense most of the rest of the way.
They have acquired good fixes to the offensive line.
They are up against the cap ceiling due to Manning and clearing out players that aren't good for the "room"
The players you wanted kept (Collins, Snacks, Apple, OBJ, Goodson) didn't WIN any games either!

2020 is the key year. Cap restraints will be gone, a fresh new draft (most likely top 10)

If you didn't think that before this season began you had rose colored glasses on.
Good idea for a thread and  
PhilSimms15 : 9/9/2019 10:53 am : link
a decent prediction at 4-12.

I think one reason many people on BBI were flipping out yesterday (and still some today) is that there were many who had crowned DG as executive of the year; thought that we were ready to compete for a playoff with a better OL; and in general did not recognize the deep weakness on the Giants roster.

Frankly, I am not a big fan of Gettleman but to be fair, he took over a horrendous roster and cap situation. To think he would turn it around after on bad season was just crazy.

It is possible that the Giants are making progress AND that they still are not a good football team.

One more good draft and spending some FA money wisely in the next offseason, and they could be a team in the playoff hunt. No lock, but in the hunt.

Not this year though.
Fire Shurmur  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 9/9/2019 11:01 am : link
Or cut Tanney already ffs. Clearly neither are contributing much to this offense.
Some of the people who bitch the most on BBI  
montanagiant : 9/9/2019 11:04 am : link
Are the same ones who have repeatedly claimed this team stinks and will win only 4-5 games all offseason.

What they saw yesterday was a 4-5 win team playing a SB contending team, so why are they bitching today?
We cut preseason hero Russell  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 9/9/2019 11:05 am : link
For Core ffs?
Matt Ryan and the Falcons  
Karl Hungus : 9/9/2019 11:09 am : link
Are still completely useless.
Only team we can beat is Miami  
Rudy5757 : 9/9/2019 11:24 am : link
OBJ's losing record continues to follow him

We may never get a sack in 2019

Lawrence is not a pass rusher or a DE

Baker is terrible, actually didn't look like the effort was there on some plays

Connelly is a future HOFer...lol

Saquon must have been tired on the 60 yard run, need to rest until the 4th.

Core is a special teams ace...lol

NFL is filled with slop. Playing once a week, and the fantasy/betting edge, keeps the league completely interesting.

Look at the schedule every week and the dog games it has. For example, this Thursday Night.

Still say Giants win 7 or 8..................
Goodsen won his game  
RollBlue : 9/9/2019 11:35 am : link
Apple didn't play yet, but will probably win tonight. The team has a lot of dead money because Gettleman traded all of the good defensive players. Maybe the right thing long term, but need to replace those guys with guys that can actually play - so far that remains to be seen.
Shurmur  
thrunthrublue : 9/9/2019 12:00 pm : link
Is, and will always be a losing head coach. He is d.gís worst decision, among many, many others. Worst scouts in professional football, no pass rushers, no cover capable d backs. And once again, dead last finish in the nfc east, as of today, tied for last place and securely defending their low ground.
Giants still suck  
BigBluesman : 9/9/2019 1:01 pm : link
can't justify spending money watching them at bars or instead of the Yankees. Shurmur will be fired before BBI can consistently spell his name.

PaulN : 9/9/2019 1:56 pm : link
Let's see all the idiots overreact and show our tremendous intellegence on BBI. How can I make me feel good instead of thinking how bad and lost this team and organization is. Barkley 11 fucking carries on a day keeping the defense off the the field was the only hope. There is no overreaction, Pat Shurmur is clueless and was a horrible hire, maybe Gettleman too if he does nothing.

Draft Barkley with the second pick and hire a coach clueless to how to use him.
I donít have to tell you things are bad.  
x meadowlander : 9/9/2019 2:25 pm : link
Everybody knows things are bad. Itís a depression. Everybodyís out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickelís worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and thereís nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and thereís no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today the Giants opened IN DALLAS and got their asses handed to them AGAIN as if thatís the way itís supposed to be.

We know things are bad Ė worse than bad. Theyíre crazy. Itís like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we donít go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is: ĎPlease, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I wonít say anything. Just leave us alone.í

Well, Iím not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get MAD! I donít want you to protest. I donít want you to riot Ė I donít want you to write to your congressman, because I wouldnít know what to tell you to write. I donít know what to do about the play calling and bad defense and depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first youíve got to get mad. (shouting) Youíve got to say: ĎIím a human being, god-dammit! My life has value!í

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell: ĎIím as mad as hell, and Iím not gonna take this anymore!í
I want you to get up right now. Sit up. Go to your windows. Open them and stick your head out and yell Ė ĎIím as mad as hell and Iím not gonna take this anymore!í Things have got to change. But first, youíve gotta get mad!ÖYouíve got to say, ĎIím as mad as hell, and Iím not gonna take this anymore!í Then weíll figure out what to do about the play calls and bad defense and depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first, get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: ĎIím as mad as hell, and Iím not gonna take this anymore!í
Iím feeling patient despite the horrific game yesterday.  
yatqb : 9/9/2019 2:26 pm : link
We all know that thereís a huge difference in talent level and experience for these two teams. I didnít expect to win nor did I expect rookie DBs to play like vets.

Dallas also did a great job of isolating our Safety on their Way s. We canít win a matchup of Bethea vs Cooper, for example.

We need a pass rush and even more talent on the OL and at LB, and it will likely take 2 more years to get that. Weíre no different than a ton of other teams who are rebuilding. It takes time.
