The media put a lot of pressure on Saquan ahead of last week  
KeoweeFan : 9/17/2020 1:28 pm : link
and and I think he took it to heart. He looked very tense on the sidelines and tried to do too much. Early drops, vaulting players like Superman etc.

If Colombo can make some corrections to technique and strategy, Engram has a better blocking game and Barkley relaxes he and the Giants should do much better.
I think we win this week

and I have no idea why I feel this way.
Which Trubisky shows up?  
GMen72 : 9/17/2020 1:37 pm : link
If Trubisky plays like his normal self, Giants will have a good chance. If Trubisky plays like he did in the 4th quarter last week, Bears win. If the Giants' OLine doesn't improve on a short week, Bears win. These teams have pretty equal talent...tough call.
I expect a win this week  
KDavies : 9/17/2020 1:37 pm : link
Jones needs to cut down on mistakes. Bears don't have the D that Pitt does, and they don't have near the offense the Steelers do.

27-13 Giants
Giants win it  
Joey in VA : 9/17/2020 1:44 pm : link
We went toe to toe with a much more talented offense and defense, Trubisky is hot and cold and Akiem Hicks is good but he's no Hayward. Mack is an issue but again, if Robert Quinn is out that's only one edge guy to really worry about so we can slide protection to Mack's side.

I fully expect us to win this one, and for Barkley and ENgram to really bounce back this week.

Giants 27
Bears 20

bad Mitch gives the Giants room to win, hot Mitch gives the Bears room to win and a boost to the Bears D.

Giants win and the usual cast of BBI whiny bitches will show up after the fact and tell us all how absolutely pathetic the Bears are and that this game meant nothing. Giving less than zero credit to the Giants. Book it.

Bears gave up the 3rd most receptions to TEs in the NFL last year.
Judge will look to get him involved early for confidence after last week.
BBI thinks he is worthless right now.

Most team will crowd the box and double dog dare us to go to Engram. Can't block, can't run a route, and can't catch. He is the guy they want us to target.
Winnable game  
averagejoe : 9/17/2020 3:08 pm : link
But Chicago is seeing it the same way. Close but we lose again 19-17. Not sure this offense is ready to score yet.
I believe the Giants will improve  
DieHard : 9/17/2020 3:12 pm : link
But I think it's still too early. Bears 23-13.
Judge's culture the difference in this Winnable game  
US1 Giants : 9/17/2020 3:21 pm : link
23-21 Giants. Could be a long wait for another winnable game.
Bears 38 Giants 10  
MartyNJ1969 : 9/17/2020 3:41 pm : link
Short rest and travel combined with Trubiski spreading out our defense. Bears OL is good.
This is a young Giants team...impressed with Judge!  
GiantBlue : 9/17/2020 3:44 pm : link
I say they put Monday night behind them, go out there and play an inspired game. Jones to Slayton 2X again....Barkley scores twice and even Kaden Smith gets in on the scoring:

Giants 38 Bears 24!

Lets Go Giants!
Bears 27

Giants win!  
bluepepper : 9/17/2020 4:08 pm : link

I like that the Bears came back and won last week. They'd be more in desperation mode if they lost but now they think they stole one and are a touch complacent playing the lowly Giants.
I said Bears 23/NYG 17 on Monday  
The_Boss : 9/17/2020 4:44 pm : link
No reason to change it up now.

Jones pedestrian game:
220 yards
1 int
1 fumble lost (Khalil Mack)

Barkley held to 60-75 yards

Winnable game  
arniefez : 9/17/2020 4:54 pm : link
We'll see if the OL is any better. I think the same level from the OL and we'll see the same result as last week.
Giants, 33-20  
j_rud : 9/17/2020 5:31 pm : link
I rarely if ever predict double digit wins but Ive been saying it all week and Im not backing off it now.

Bears have a solid front 7, but not what Pittsburg was packing. I expect them to try and copy the Steelers, run blitz and sell out to stop Barkley. I think the OL will be better prepared and I think Jones lights them up.

I think this team is finally on the right track  
joeinpa : 9/17/2020 5:43 pm : link
I think they continue to get better as the season progresses

I think at some lt in the season they put together a streak of good games, winning more than they lose, beating some quality teams in the process, teams that they haven’t been beating as of late.

Don’t know when that happens, but feel strongly it will
I don't make predicitions,  
Dave in Hoboken : 9/17/2020 5:45 pm : link
because I feel like when I pick the Giants, I jinx them. All I'm gonna say is the OL really better pick it the fuck up. PIT has a very good defense, but there is never a reason for a RB of the quality of a Barkley to rush for 6 yards in a game when he's healthy (which he is). Inexcusable.
Bears could barely beat the Lions, in fact they were lucky  
PatersonPlank : 9/17/2020 5:48 pm : link
that Stafford blew it.

Giants 34 - Bears 17

Trubisky blows up leading to Foles replacing him in the 3rd

Giants OL plays much better and Barkley goes off for 180 yds rushing
BleedBlue : 9/17/2020 6:13 pm : link
trubisky is ass...

bears front isnt as good as steelers...

we win this week

Barkley upset at criticism, has 125 rushing yards and three touchdowns, and, after game, announces he wants to be traded to team that appreciates his value-- the Browns
We SHOULD win this week  
Jalapeno : 9/17/2020 8:07 pm : link
In traditional Giants terms that will mean we lose by 10 points at least.

First win will come next week.

Front 7 is notch below but still very good. Mack and Robert Quinn are a little banged up and their starting NT opted out.

Secondary may actually be better with Fuller and Eddie Jackson. Theyre starting a rookie, Jaylon Johnson, opposite Fuller but he played well last week.
By my count so far  
M.S. : 9/18/2020 8:50 am : link

Out of 28 predictions, 20 BBIers have the Giants winning; 8 have the Giants losing.

Average (rounded) score across 28 predictions:

Giants 24
Bears 20
Don't see a win here  
GManinDC : 9/18/2020 9:13 am : link
I think Jones has a average game. SB may get about 80 yards. Offense is gonna struggle.

I think, as usual, QB's are gonna have time to throw and this is gonna be reminiscent of the last game played against them.

Trubisky is gonna look good with no pressure and against a very young scondary..
Giants win in a fist fight  
ShockNRoll : 9/18/2020 10:03 am : link
Trubisky won't take over the game in the second half like Ben did. I'm going to say Giants win this one 24-17. If they lose this week, my predictions on these threads will get a little less optimistic lol.
arcarsenal : 9/18/2020 10:17 am : link
We're gonna win this game.

Would like to pick them...  
Carson53 : 9/18/2020 12:13 pm : link
but alas, my brain will take over here, 24-17, Da Bears.
The "Vegas" in me has the Bears 24-20  
SGMen : 9/18/2020 1:44 pm : link
The "fan" in me has the Giants 24-23 as we kick a last second FG from 47 yards out to win it on the road on a short week.

The Bears offense is NOT that good really. The Bears defense is good but a notch below Pittsburgh. I do believe the Giants will iron out some OL woes and some scheme woes on defense just enough to keep the game close.

The key is turnovers: we win that battle and we can win this game.

But I don't see this game as a blowout or double digit win for either team unless its a turnover fest somehow.
Giants are starting 0-5 on the season

This is another game that they’ll play well but lose.

this one feels like a win so 27-16  
Eric on Li : 9/18/2020 3:05 pm : link
Trubisky was about to get replaced, their run D didn't hold up well without Goldman, Quinn and Mack are both nicked up already. Trevathan was lost in coverage all day. Even with the 4th Q comeback Detroit had them beat if Swift catches the ball. Robinson is pissed about his contract.

I think Saquon and Engram have very big games and the defense looks more like they did early vs. Pitt than they did late. Jones is pressured less and plays similarly. I'm sure he'll make a mistake or two but there will be a lot more margin for error.
31 - 24

trueblueinpw : 9/19/2020 9:45 am : link
I’m not looking forward to seeing our offensive line against the Mack led Bears pass rush but then again, the Giants offensive is stacked with top draft choices (three top ten overall picks!) and tons of highly touted FAs. A lot of us excuse the Giants crappy offense because the line sucks, and based on past play the o line does indeed suck. But blaming only the O line ignores the supposed talent at all the other positions (and the supposed talent on the line itself). At some point the alleged star players need to start to make plays on game day.

Look at someone like Russell Wilson, and the unspectacular O line he’s played behind. Look at how DeKaylin Metcalf and Cris Carson are able to somehow overcome the less than amazing offensive line of the Seahawks. Eli couldn’t run and make plays with his legs but that’s not supposed to be a problem for Jones. Playing QB is the NFL requires reading defenses and protecting the football while making big plays in big spots. This is something Jones needs to do. Now.

And the list goes on from the “franchise QB”, the first round draft picks, and “future ball of fame” running back they all need to start to make the plays that win games. Now. At some point this offense needs to carry the team to a win and I say that point is against a pretty mediocre Bears team. Now.

There’s no clear advantage to any offense that starts Mitch Trubinsky at QB1. And just like the Giants offense has talent, at least according to draft position and FA position, there is talent on this Giants defense. Too as well, it’s not like the Giants are playing the Greatest Show on Turf this weekend. The Giants FA line backers, our FA CB1, first round pick Peppers and the surprising Love and especially the amazing defensive line Getty has built around keystone player and “gotta’ have him now at any cost or several other teams in the league will sign him” Lenard Williams should be more than enough to stop little ol’ Mitch Trubinsky. Get it done defense. Now. The defense doesn’t need to be spectacular to do their part in bringing home a win.

And the Giants have a good Special Teams unit. In fact the Teams really should be among the best of the best in the NFL considering we hired a special teams coach to be our head coach.

As far as coaching overall, I don’t see any clear advantage to the Naggy staff over the Judge crew of coaches. Obviously Judge is only in his second game ever as a head coach but hey, he was hired over everyone else the Giants interviewed so this must be the right guy. Prove it. Coach Judge, show why you’re the guy to lead this team. Starting now.

The season has begun and it always goes by in a flash. All the Zoom meeting and no preseason game excuses about the covid off-season are behind us now. Any advantage or disadvantage from having been experienced together is fast being equalized by the pure talent and results nature of pro football. It’s time for the Getty Judge Jones Giants to start to win. Let’s go Big Blue!
26-14 Gmen.

For once, the Giants win the turnover battle by 2 takeaways.
