Maybe the Vikings are just good? see Eagles game

Paulie Walnuts : 10/13/2019 4:54 pm
1, 2. Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas: The Eagles’ young cornerback duo was utterly dominated by the Vikings’ elite Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs combination.

No excuse for our dismal compete level, poor gameplan and execution.

vikes are very good.

take away davlin cook, mattison, rudolph, thielen...lets see how they do....


people still cannot wrap their head around us being DECIMATED by injuries. no other team in football is that badly injured. giants will be fine on offense. need to add an OT early in draft, and then a ton of Defense help in FA and rest of draft
I'm starting to think the Cowboys suck too

They are playing awful.
Makes me feel good about Baker

Vikings broadcasters on Sirius were ripping Eagles corners saying they were helpless in trying to cover DIGGS.

WTF doe that have to do with the Vikings being good?
'have to do with the Vikings being good?'...  
Torrag : 10/13/2019 5:47 pm : link
The OP is an inferred excuse for us getting dominated. You have reading comprehension issues?

No I know exactly what he was saying, but you have issues with which I disagree. Just because you didn't like the game plan doesn't mean the rest of us have to agree with you. You ASSUME you are the only opinion that matters.
'the only opinion that matters.'  
Torrag : 10/13/2019 5:58 pm : link
UUmm what opinion am I supposed to argue for? Someone elses? Get a grip you're not making any sense.
Either way it means we can’t hang

With good teams when they are on their game.

All you are saying if the Giants coaching staff was better they would have won, pretty much ignoring that the Vikings have better talent across the board. You want to dismiss that the Eagles with much better personnel got beat pretty decisively by the Vikings. Can you name one aspect of the Giants that is better than the Vikings, with the exception of Rosas and probably Jones?

This Giants aren’t deep enough to lose their top two WRs and arguably the best RB in the league. Shocking
If Cousins  
Mark from Jersey : 10/13/2019 6:26 pm : link
can pull his head out of his gaping anus and that O-Line can be average they are a very very dangerous team.
cousins threw 4 TDs today  
japanhead : 10/13/2019 6:33 pm : link
against a winning team that one the superbowl just the other year. hopefully daniel jones turns in as good a performance v the eagles this year. so far it looks to me like jones has regressed a bit.
won not one  
japanhead : 10/13/2019 6:34 pm : link
ugh.
Where the hell has EDP445 been?  
Fishmanjim57 : 10/13/2019 7:30 pm : link
I usually check out his page when the Eagles lose a game, but he hasn't been making any videos during this season.

Torrag : 10/13/2019 7:34 pm : link
Let's take a look at what I actually posted..."No excuse for our dismal compete level, poor gameplan and execution."

Nowhere do I say we 'should have won the game". I correctly questioned our preparedness, battle level and strategy. There is a difference between performing at a respectable level and actually competing and repeatedly getting blown out. Which is a far too familiar theme in our games.

I believe there are workshops for that reading comprehension skill you might want to look into.
Howie Roseman is working on closing that

talent gap between the Eagles and Giants.
I warned the Vikes were plenty good  
JonC : 10/14/2019 2:07 pm : link
and being underrated by the forum when we played them.

They're a veteran team with a defense that is talented and capable of cohesive, high level performances. Their skill players on offense are plenty good and capable of getting really hot for a few games.

We gave them (and Cousins) their confidence back, like I figured we would. Giants are still too young and shorthanded, even when healthy.

Our team depth is a problem. People look at our starters and there are some good ones, but everyone needs a breather. Our depth is bad, everywhere.
Yep, depth is still a problem  
JonC : 10/14/2019 2:13 pm : link
What's been on the market is a problem too, that's how you wind up relying on guys like Mayo, Stupar, Davis, and taking a flier on Bethea, trading for Ogletree. It takes a few seasons to really set part of the foundation, as you're going to miss on draft picks and UFA is often not optimal.
'Giants are still too young and shorthanded, even when healthy.'  
Torrag : 10/14/2019 2:13 pm : link
Agreed. It's exacerbated on defense by the staffs stubborn reluctance to 'go young' with more physically talented players sitting in lieu of struggling 'vets like haley and bethea.
Torrag  
JonC : 10/14/2019 2:19 pm : link
Agreed. I don't know what they're not seeing in practice from Ballantine, Love, Beal, et al. But, this team isn't going anywhere this season. Figure out what you've got in house, because not every draft pick will succeed or earn a second contract.

Exactly. 100%.
