Prophet’s Pulpit-Week 3 Preview & Prediction-Giants vs Texans.

giants vs texans

Written by:  Tony “The Prophet”  Yantosca

The main thing that I got right last week was that the game was going to be low scoring and go under. It was a very disappointing Giants appearance and now indicative of what the rest of the season is going to look like. The Giants had played well against Jacksonville and had some chances to win that game. Last week we saw the regression to the Jerry Reese drafting and the McAdoo play calling. The Giants couldn’t run the ball. They ran for 35 yards. The offensive line collapsed as bad as it did at any time last year. The right side was already horrific. There was a big blow when Halapio hurt his ankle during the game and now is out for the year. Gettleman stupidly traded away Brett Jones to Minnesota to save some cap money, $3.9M vs. $555,000 for Halapio. I have been screaming for years that the Gmen never have any OL depth. Even though it is early they are essentially done for the year. Continue reading

With all the optimism coming into this season, new GM, new head coach, new coaching staff, new exciting players obtained in free agency and the draft….. same pitiful results.  Shurmur picks up where McAdoo left off.  Another putrid performance against the Cowboys, the Giants are reeling at 0-2.

DAL 20 NYG 13-Cowboys Clobber Giants

The Dallas Dak Attack Defeats the Giants 20 – 13

by Alexander George

Manning was sacked SIX times and hit EIGHT times.

In the third play of the game, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw a 64 yard touchdown bomb to receiver Tavon Austin for a quick score which set the tone of the game in a 20 – 13 victory over the New York Giants. With the loss, the Giants fall to 0-2. Teams that are 0 – 2, such as the Giants, have a slim 11 percent chance of making the playoffs. Big Blue has to defy the odds, to make that playoff push this season. Continue reading

Prophet’s Pulpit- Week 2 NYG vs DAL- Preview & Prediction.

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca

The Giants acquitted themselves well vs the Jaguars with everything considered. They had to work out the preseason rust as the starters play very little in these meaningless games. They were never really out of this game. OBJ is back to normal form with 11 catches for 111 yards. However the Jaguars D with Ramsey kept him out of the end zone. Barkley came as advertised with 106 yards and a sparkling 68 yard run for a touchdown. He had 5.9 yards/carry, which is excellent. I think what we saw from Barkley will be typical. He will have shorter runs and then a long scamper that will help the average. We saw that at Penn State also. The Jags D with maybe the best linebacker corps in the league kept Engram along with the safeties to 2 catches for 18 yards. We had the obligatory Eli pick. This one hurt as Myles Jack, one of the best LB’s in the league, took the pick to the house. It was actually the difference in the game. Continue reading

Prophet’s Pulpit-Giants vs Jags Preview & Prediction

Prophet is back!!!

The 2018 Giants story starts on December 4, 2017. This is one of the greatest days in Giants history. John Mara finally fired Jerry “Reach” Reese after a decade of ineptitude. He left the team totally devoid of talent and he got Coughlin fired. Jerry did not believe in offensive line depth, linebackers, stud running backs or tight ends. When he finally felt the heat he started spending money on defensive free agents like a drunken sailor. The team is still dealing with these effects like a $15M cap hit of dead money for JPP. He spent $84M on Olivier Vernon, who averaged 7.5 sacks/year for his career. He has not eclipsed that with the Gmen yet.  There were no Pro Bowl selections. They only got Antrel Rolle on the Pro Bowl roster after the 2 Super Bowl teams pull out of the game and the myriad of players opt out with injuries or veterans ready to go home after another grueling campaign.
