What are eyou rooting for this Sunday?

Commanders are 2nd to last in TD% allowed and adjusted yards per pass attempt allowed. Jones who has not played great has always done well against Washington. His offensive yards per touch this year was low (4.74 yrds - 46th out of 61 in 2023). However looking at his career against Washington it was 6.44 yrds which would come in at 19th of 61 this year) Tommy Devito’s offensive yards per touch was equivalent to Jones’ 2023 numbers going into this Dallas game. However with the Dallas game it dropped to 3.87 yrds or 53 out of 61. I expect Devito, like Jones, to play better against Washington. I think they could pull out a win. I always root for the win but will not be too disappointed on a loss when thinking of the draft. Anyways always is special to beat a division opponent and that would be an embarrassmenet to Washington losing to a double digit point spread underdog division rival. What say are you up for a win?
oops a 9.5 point spread underdog - close enough

To look like MVPs and Bryce Young to look like a number 1 pick.

The Giants don’t lay down like dogs but expecting Daboll’s crew don’t have the balls to even try.

……this team not worth it……not an entertaining product before the inhmjury disasters
a win...  
Bill E : 11/15/2023 11:26 pm : link
..I could never watch a game and root for the Giants to lose.
That means I would be rooting for the commanders, or the cowboys, or the eagles to beat the jints.
Never gonna happen.

This is better than rooting against the Giants. I like the approach.
Always rooting for a win

But it’s just hard to see how we can win with DeVito. And that’s not knocking him. He’s a rookie PS QB. Probably as good as any rookie PS QB. But you have to be realistic.

I have long been in that camp. But at this point, I just want a competitive game that we lose at the last second. Jets and Bills, not Cardinals. What a crappy place to be.

I never want them to lose

But in situations like this I just don't fret, worry or suffer angst if they lose.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if we win. I don't believe in "tanking" and the draft and draft position will take care of itself later.

People point to our win over Washington and losing out on Chase Young like some big miss.. Thomas has been the better overall player so I say we came out fine there. The draft has multiple QB's coming and quite frankly we don't need the #1 pick to grab an improvement!!
I rooting for good

Weather so I can play golf and not have to watch a disinterested Giants team display another putrid, unmotivated performance.
I accept that they are going to lose.  
Tom in NY : 11/16/2023 11:57 am : link
So what I watch for is:
- young player development (the Dbackfield specifically)
- Robinson & Bellinger on offense
- Devito...can he start to show signs as being solid back-up (we have not really seen it yet)

Lastly...can the core players avoid injury. I'd like to think they can come into '24 relatively healthy.

I'll be rooting for good plays from the Giants. All the while, I'll be perfectly OK with everything negative that happens to them aside from injuries.

I can't divorce myself from the idea that losses are a good thing in the short term. Sometimes it has to get worse for it to get better.

And yes, I'll be rooting twice as hard for wins from Carolina, Chicago, Arizona, and any other bottom-dwellers.

...Ill be prepping for our end of season banquet.

Hopefully, celebrating a 3rd State Championship (in a row)!
If Washington figures out how to block Dex this time around  
ThomasG : 11/16/2023 3:36 pm : link
then we should be able to hold serve on our draft position.

Same here but with fewer decades.

I’d not watch if I was rooting against us.
