Moving forward

Do we get our guys back next week?

I cannot wait to see the offense at full strength. I actually think we will score some.points and allow our defense to breathe some. I'm not even mad about tonight. Missing all those guys, knew no shot to win.

I for one was happy to see Carter look better, golden continued to play well.
Baker had a decent game. DL looks pretty good. Mayo looks like solid depth. I still think slayton will be a solid WR with some more experience.

We have still NEVER seen the offense at full strength so I am hoping we can in a week or so. Next month or so could be fun to watch as we have some winnable games and are hopefully getting healthier as days go by
It's time to put Ballentine and/or Love on the field.

The holes in the defensive backfield are enormous, and every QB knows to just focus on whomever Haley is covering.

Hopefully the healthy scratch for Tae Davis is just to give him 10 additional days to recover from his concussion as he might have the athletic ability to help the middle of the field.

Re-sign Marcus Golden right now. The guy should be a defensive Captain.

Stupar should be cut tomorrow. Not good on D...and now a liability on Special Teams.

They may need to activate Chris Slayton with Pierre having the concussion.

Jones is going to learn a lot from today's game. He was holding the ball too long on his first 2 picks, and seemed to get that concept in the 2nd half as he was throwing the ball away in a more timely fashion.

....Shurmur should have gone for it on 4th and 2. The Giants still don't win the game, but it probably gives Jones another series or two to work on his game.

Finally, it looks like D. Slayton may really be a player. He just needs to get a little stronger (i.e. offseason weight training) to she can combat the defensive backs a little better.
Shurmur didnít go for it because

He knows no RB could get that 2 yards, and he knew Pats would come hard with everyone to both contain Danny from running and forcing him to make a very quick pass to a receiver who probably would not have any separation in that amount of time. I mean come you think Latimer, Ellison, and Tate could get open in less than 2 seconds?

But I agree, if you are playing to win you have to take risks.

Can leave Gillette with their heads held high. They took on the undefeated Super Bowl champs with a third string running back backup tight end and backup receiver and kept it close to the fourth quarter. You donít have to think too hard about how Barkley would have changed the game. He should come back when heís healed up
Agreed, there were alot of positives

alot of negatives, but alot of positives as well.

I wish they would roll out Jones more. I am sure the personel limited some options. Did we even hear of the mystery 2nd receiver. Ellison is ssllooww :(
I would be very surprised if both Barkley and Engram

aren't back against Arizona. I have a bad feeling that Shepard will be out for the rest of the season.
why no rollout calls, that option alone freezes the LB's

With Hilliman in the backfield play action boot might have gotten DJ killed.
