Eagles 27 NYG 24 – McAdoo: A Village Idiot or Smartest Guy in the Room?

Written by:  Glenn Warciski & Peter Scott Furman

Undaunted by the pressure, Eagles rookie placekicker Jake Elliot made a franchise record 61-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Eagles a 27-24 comeback win against the New York Football Giants. With this win, the Eagles improve to 2-1 overall (more importantly, 2-0 in the NFC East). On the other hand, this crushing loss drops the Giants record to 0-3 overall (0-2 in the NFC East & 0-3 in the NFC Conference). Needless to say, Elliot’s leg drove the penultimate nail into the Giants 2017 playoff coffin.

Prophet’s Pulpit-NYG vs Eagles Preview & Prediction

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca

Last Monday night, the Giants faced the perfect storm of their incompetent offensive line, nonexistent run game and the boneheaded, predictable play calling of McAdoo. For the past five years, I have been saying that the Giants offensive line has no depth. Every year, they lose at least three linemen for four to six weeks plus, and Jerry “Reach” has done nothing to address the problem.

NFL Ratings-Fewer Eyeballs Watching

Written by: Motown Blue

NFL ratings are down. Why, and what it will mean.

The NFL television ratings were just recently announced, and they are reportedly down 15% this season. Much like last season, when ratings declines were announced, excuses were made. Last year, it was the election coverage, and this year it was hurricane coverage. Of course, they will deflect and provide excuses. It is in their best interest to abate the alarm of advertisers that are a significant part of their economic pie.

Pathetic Giants

Written by: Peter Scott Furman and Glenn Warciski

On a night in which the Giants were celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Super Bowl 42 Champions, the 2017 Giants stunk up Met Life Stadium. In a forgettable performance, the putrid Giants lost to the Lions 24 – 10 on Monday Night Football. To some fans,  this is shocking because there was hype in the offseason about the Giants being Super Bowl contenders, but with the last two weeks of inept play, the Giants find themselves at 0-2 with their playoff season on the line this week in Philadelphia. So what the heck is going on?

Lions 24, NYG 10

Written by: Motown Blue

The Giants’ very first possession looked like a comic disaster was going to play out when Eli was sacked and his fumble was returned for a TD. Although they averted the disaster as it was overturned, it became the theme for the night and their slow-moving trainwreck called the offensive line. There is a lot of highly critical press on Ereck Flowers and rightfully so, but it runs deeper than him. You almost felt sorry for the kid as his head coach stubbornly kept him on an island with zero help. The kid is a mental case at this point, and you have to wonder if he will ever amount to a serviceable OL at any position.

Prophet’s Pulpit-NYG vs. Lions

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca

Well, like the Prophet Cassandra who prophesized doom in ancient times, the Prophet said that the Giants were in trouble with no run game and an incompetent offensive line. You saw it displayed in spades last Sunday night in Dallas. Dallas ran 47 plays in the first half, and the game was virtually over by half time. The defense got worn down. The Giants lost the time of possession battle 25:46 to 34:14 for Dallas. That was the Dallas formula the year DeMarco Murray ran for 1800 yards and the Dallas D was only on the field 25 minutes a game. The Giants ran for a pitiful 35 yards. This is nothing new during Jerry Reese’s reign. The Giants have been at the bottom of the rushing metrics since 2011.

Whispers from 1997-Reese and McAdoo Put On Notice

Written by: Motown Blue

It won’t be long until the D unit starts an open revolt on the sidelines and in the locker room. Remember back when Fassel took over as the genius OC to a dysfunctional O that had the D unit literally fighting with their own O unit? Is McAdoo another O genius in a long line of O geniuses who failed to transition to HC? Remember Don Coryell along with Fassel mentioned above. How frustrating can it be for a talented D to hold on to a ledge for four quarters to keep a team with an exceptional OL to 19 points with zero help from their O? They were gassed at the end of the first half.

Dallas Stomps on NYG 19-3

The New York Football Giants were dreadful! Their arch rival the Dallas Cowboys controlled this game from the beginning and buried the Giants 19-3.  The last time a Giants team played so poorly on Opening Day was 1995.  On a night when the Giants retired Phil Simms number 11, a piss-poor Giants squad was demolished by the would-be Super Bowl Champion Cowboys 35-0. The 1995 Giants never recovered from that humiliating defeat, subsequently losing their first THREE games and finishing up the season with a thud at 5-11. In order to keep this Super Bowl dream alive, the Giants must get things fixed on offense immediately.  Otherwise,  the 2017 Giants may mirror the 1995 team.

Prophet’s Pulpit – Jerry Reese, Giants vs. Dallas, & Prediction

Written by: Tony Yantosca “Tony the Prophet”

To talk about the Giants in 2017, let’s go back to April and the draft. Every year I’m like an eight year old on Christmas Eve who’s up at 3am. I can’t wait to see what Santa left. Every year I forget that the Giants have the Grinch, Jerry “Reach” Reese, who should have been fired five years ago.  Every year, Jerry is going to tear the heart out of your chest while it is still beating like the Mayans. Then, to make sure you are dead, he tosses it in a blast furnace!

Giants vs. Cowboys & More

Written by: Motown Blue

A premise that we value here on this blog as it correlates to the NY Giants’ record last year is roster health. We have discussed in the past about the impact of the strength and conditioning program and its impact on adjusted games lost (AGL). We have visited this so many times that we’re bordering on beating a dead horse, but we want to put our prior argument into perspective.
