Yes, Eli screwed up. Yes, Eli deserves a pass. I’m not going to defend him, because your opinion on Eli is what it is. He is who he is. He’s a leader, a champion, and occasionally the guy who throws a boneheaded interception to cost the Giants the game. Sunday was one of those occasions, and my rationalization of him didn’t make the ending suck any less. Continue reading

Giant Opportunities: A Giants/Redskins Preview


– Jim Bearor

Kirk Cousins and an 0-2 Washington team will head into the Meadowlands on Sunday, and their hopes of defending their NFC East title already is kinda sorta in the balance. It’s a long season, but a loss here would put them three games behind the Giants with an 0-2 divisional record. Big Blue has an opportunity to start 3-0 for the first time since 2009, or they’ll fall back to the pack and restore disorder to the NFC East. This is one of those games that only gains importance in the months after it’s played. But even just looking at it in the scope of the 2-3 Week old season, this is a big deal. Continue reading

Welcome to week 3 of my Friday picks column, I had my first winning record last week and nailed my best bet and hope to keep up the momentum this week, because as you know… my picks have such an impact on the games.  The story of the year so far have been the rookie QB’s Wentz and Prescott have both been quite solid. Meanwhile the #1 overall pick Jared Goff can’t even sniff the field due to the Rams being worried that he can even say the play call.  Which makes me think, if the quarterback is so important in this league, why not make your system as QB-friendly as possible?  Obviously, easy for me to say in my chair, but if you use last night’s game as an example (one that I lost) the greatest coach of our generation made things easy on his QB and was rewarded with a safe effective performance that turned into a 27 point win.  That Belichick guy might know something… just don’t ask him about fashion or videotaping, or ball inflating, or…. anyways… lets get to the picks.
