Giants now 1 game out

NewBlue : 10/13/2019 7:28 pm
Philly and Dallas lose so we are 1 game out with Arizona coming in.
The expectation is we will get better as the season goes on, our young players get better, our injured guys come back, and Daniel Jones gains experience, meaningful games around Thanksgiving?
Meaningful games in

For the taking indeed!
Itíd be fucking wild to be in the playoff hunt on Thanksgiving weekend

But stranger things have happened!
Fun to see so many Giants fans

But whatever. I'll take it.
Historically some really bad teams have made the playoffs.  
Torrag : 10/13/2019 7:43 pm : link
We're still in the hunt for the division. There isn't currently a scenario I see that if we stunningly made the post season where we could advance but hey I'll take it.
One Game At A Time

Letís focus on the Cards. Nothing is a gimme. Letís hope we get a win.

The Lions after that...
Just beat the cards in jersey  
djm : 10/13/2019 7:45 pm : link
letís get to 3-4 and go from there. I really want to see this defense next Sunday. Itís time to turn the fucking corner and distance ourselves from the shiftiest stretch of nyg defense in our glorious defensive history and start a new era of defensive greatness. Iím not asking for greatness right away but enough already with this shit show weíve endured. Itís time.
'defense...Itís time to turn the fucking corner'...

Amen. The problem is this staff isn't playing the right people to get there. Haley and Bethea are playing awful ball and it's killing us. It's hard to see the path to significant improvement when we keep running them out there.
No excuses..

All these teams have problems. No reason the expectation shouldnít be the division.
As long as philly and cowboys lose every game  
micky : 10/13/2019 7:55 pm : link
Aside from playing each other, the giants can still lose and be right there
If they win at home against the Cardinals  
joeinpa : 10/13/2019 8:01 pm : link
Something a team to take seriously should do, they will be entering week 8, guaranteed to be only 1 out if first in the loss column

If they donít win, would be very disappointing and put a different feel to he season.

Exactly. I donít want to hear the Giants donít have this or that. Bullshit. Dallas is flawed. Philly is flawed. The Skins are terrible. The division is there for whomever wants it.
Theyíve been 1 game out  
GiantsRage2007 : 10/13/2019 8:16 pm : link
For a couple weeks

Eventually you have to actually win some games to make up ground.

Here's hoping they use the bye week to get some guys like Ballentine and Love some work with the 1's.

I have a feeling they're gonna stick with Haley though unless one of the guys shows a real good understanding of the D and doesn't look like a rookie.
Bad News is

We are also 1 game out of LAST place :)

I really just don't understand the Bethea and Haley thing. There is simply no way Love and Ballentine could be worse, unless there's an injury we don't know about. Play the guys. They need to play at some point anyway. I would love to know how Bettcher thinks Bethea or Haley should be on the field over anyone. Seriously.
They must have

Absolutely. Philly and Dallas have better rosters but they are not in the ascendancy.

Go win some fucking games.
After the bye week, I think a guy like Love could supplant Bethea @FS

I see us playing youth as the season moves on. The future is bright though we do have some MAJOR missing pieces before we can become an "elite" team:
-Edge Rusher of merit, someone that scares you
-LT that can handle top defenders with limited help
-RT upgrade
-FS upgrade

Also, you have to hope the young guys develop and can start. I see major cap space next year but we will sign our own and spend on UFA's that fit without over-spending for any "one guy" that another team doesn't really want OR perhaps need.
You just lost to Minnesota

And New England... two teams playing lights out. Those are DJs only losses. Letís see what happens this weekend but we are not out of it obviously.

Made me smile -- hard to do these days with the whole situation about the Giants.

Well I will start by saying we can lose to anyone.

That said, Eagles lose at Dallas and Buffalo
Cowboys beat Eagles and bye.
Giants beat AZ and Jets

We play Dallas at home for first place in NFC East. When we win:
Giants 5-4
Dallas 4-4
Eagles 4-5 (if they split with Bills and Bears)
Redskins irrelevant.
