    That sucks.

    Think Jerry should have drafted a NT in the draft instead of Stanback????

    I am like a forecasting machine.

    ** Also said Brandon Jacobs would not last 500 carries in the NFL without knee problems. A little sooner than I predicted but ....**

      Run D was horrid.

      Bigger problem was the crazed ass approach to penetration.

      Just too many holes when everyone thinks they are going to "make plays."

            • If Del Rio can suite up for the games, I don't know why the league should not allow Wade to wear something like this:



              Seriously, watching some images of Wade with his father during yesterday game, I thought it would be amazing to see Wade wearing a cowboy hat on the sideline.

                • Looking at the game book of NFL.com, we had 6 QB hurries and the Giants had only 2. These stats doesn't count the sack Spencer had during the two point-conversion.
                  Our CB's played soft zones and Manning had a great game, making quick decisions and releasing the ball in very few seconds. I think with Newman back (and a more confident Reeves) will see these QB hurries becoming sacks. The D-line needs to improve, but it usually takes a few weeks for a line to get the right chemistry.

                  And that's an intersting reading about the pass rush:

                  1. Dallas had no pass rush.

                  Not true. The Cowboys put a lot of pressure on Eli Manning and forced him into several bad throws.

                  Here’s where we have to give the Giants credit for their game plan. They threw a lot of three-step drop passes that beat all rushes, unless somebody came clean. They were very effective splitting Jeremy Shockey up wide and hitting him on short drops. Roy Williams gave him so much room the passes were impossible to stop.

                  In the few instances when Dallas did get New York in third-and-long the Giants kept seven in to block Dallas’ five and six man blitzes. New York was able to beat six man zone coverage because Plaxico Burress was in a zone. He and Eli Manning beat Anthony Henry deep and short. Henry had solid coverage on several plays but Manning and Burress got him with superior route running and throws. One on early second half play Manning stepped into pressure and threw a low skinny post that Burress slid to catch for 25 yards. No corner could have stopped it.

                  Where Dallas failed was in providing more aggressive coverage in third and longs. On New York’s opening drive of the third quarter Dallas pushed Manning into a third and twelve after a Jay Ratliff sack. Dallas brought five blitzers and New York nullified them with a seven man cup. Manning threw right to Burress, who beat unbelievably soft Jacques Reeves coverage for 20. I say unbelievable because Reeves had help over the top from Pat Watkins and still played several yards off. Reeves broke up two throws to Burress in the next three plays and might have kept the Giants from their field goal if he had played the initial 3rd-and-12 the same way.

                  2. Demarcus Ware was invisible. Not the Ware I saw. He knocked a pass out of Manning’s hands as he was throwing and had Manning’s jersey in his hand on three other plays. There’s a symbiosis between rushers and coverge. One feeds off the other and Ware won’t close deals until the secondary tightens things up.

                  Last but not least, it was good to see our offensive line allowing only one sack and two hurries in the first game. I think they'll get better and they can have a great season as a unit.

                  • Watching the tape I've noted two things not very related with how our team played...

                    First, who's wearing the C's for us?
                    Second, when Witten scored his TD, he gave the ball to Marc Colombo... I wonder why...

                    • I don't think the Cowboys are wearing Captain patches this year.

                      I know for a fact that Romo didn't wear one, and I'm pretty sure he was a captain.

                      Perhaps they didn't wear them because Springs and Walls were the honorary captains.

                        yeah I think there is a chance they didn't wear them just because of Springs and Walls, but I am not sure they will wear them at all.

                        I believe the captains are Romo, Witten, James, and Keith Davis though.

                        • On a differnt note, I still think we'd be better of with my draft.

                          26- Chris Houston, CB, Arkansas
                          67- Jason Hill, WR, Washington St
                          103- Paul Soliai, NT, Utah
                          122- Doug Free, OT, Northern Illinois
                          178- Mason Crosby, K, Colorado
                          200- Jacob Ford, DE/OLB, Central Arkansas
                          212- Chris Leak, QB, Florida
                          234- Brandon Siler, ILB, Florida
                          237- Kenny Scott, CB, Georgia Tech

                            I absolutely disagree. A number of us, myself included, criticized the Spencer pick when it was made. Having watched Wade's scheme, however, I am totally convinced that Bobby Carpenter could not be that dynamic pass-rushing threat opposite Ware that the Philips 34 requires. Anthony Spencer provides that presence, and will provide that presence even more as he adjusts to the position.

                            I can't argue with your choices of Soliai or Free.

                            Hill though, I do take issue with. I do not think that he could have stepped in immediately and taken over for Terry Glenn or even Patrick Crayton in case of an injury. Personally, I believe that Sam Hurd is destined to be at least a solid #3 receiver and potentially more because of his awareness, attitude, and willingness to learn the nuances of the position. He may not be the most gifted player, but certainly is a hard-worker and should be a solid contributor for a number of years.

                            If you had suggested Eric Wright in the 2nd, however, I would have been fine with that selection.

                            The final pick of yours I don't like is Chris Leak. Personally, I'd rather still have Matt Moore, or would have selected Troy Smith...

                            The other picks I can't say much about since I don't really remember that much about those guys and haven't yet seen them play.

                            • I'm not sure if this has been updated yet, but Terry Glenn elected to have the arthroscopic knee surgery and will be able to play again this season.

                              • I was also someone who didn't want Spencer in the first round. But, based on your draft there, only Hill, Houston, Crosby and Free make the team for certain. Maybe Kenny Scott, but at most 5 picks make the team. I our draft better than that.
