Hey fellas, I know our record isn't wheat we want it to be, and I know with the bye now we have nothing to really focus on. So let's try to focus on some of the positive developments of this team in this thread. We'll worry again on gameday! Laughing


Positives so far:

The 2014 NFL draft class: Holy crap this could be the best class in a long time for the Giants. ODB is electric, runs great routes, works hard, and is all of 21 years old. Richburg has the mindset to be a 10 year starter, Andre Williams has a lot of promise (I still believe in Andre 3000) and Devon Kennard looked really good in preseason. I know he's fully healthy now and hopefully he can get on the field.

However you slice it it's a good class. Gonna be fun to watch.

Eli Manning: Eli has risen from the ashes! Laughing in all seriousness he looks like a different QB. Way more comfortable, getting the ball out quick, throwing accurately. It's good to see. I'll be honest I thought Eli was done, but he's been as good as you could ask for.

Larry Donnell: I know he had the two fumbles but he's still far exceeded anyone's expectations. You can make a guy a decent blocker but you can't coach a guy to have better hands. Donnell has some great mitts.

Jonathan Hankins: Big Hank is a flat out monster. And another really young player that's stepped up. He's a load against the run and he's a better pass rusher than I thought he'd be.


Go ahead and add yours! Or just talk about the guys I mentioned!

And even the guy I thought we'd take , Louis Nix III, whom was available at that spot, he's on IR. Bromley is a big mystery to me.. I just don't get it with him.

My positive:

- Damontre Moore showing flashes.

Big Bad John Hankins looks reall good. Linval who?

Another positive is that the Cowboys aren't as good as people are making them out to be Razz

I was dead sure this was another 8-8 Cowboys season and we were going to see a nice late season collapse. But man that O-line looks legit and as long as they don't catch the injury bug it's going to be hard for them to stink enough not to make the postseason. What happens from there should be entertaining though Cool

Even if Dallas lucked out and somehow got to the Super Bowl, I don't think it even matters. Denver is head and shoulders so much better than any other team this year. They should crush the NFC representative, whoever that ends up being. I wouldn't mind seeing Dallas get humiliated in the Super Bowl.

Highly doubt they'd crush the Seahawks...but they are definitely the best right now, no doubt.

Cowboys are a good, balanced team, but they are not one of the NFL's best. Probably top 10 though. Running the ball was the best thing this team could ever do; I don't know why they took so long to learn.

JPP has looked much better compared to the past year and a half. But the overall pass rush has been very inconsistent. We no longer can get pressure just by rushing 4.

Hankins is a badddd man.

Prince has balled despite Dez terrorising him a couple of times. DRC has looked like a great addition. Disappointed on Stevie Brown.

Kennard Im saddened he has missed most of the year.

Offensively. O-line as a unit is better. Pugh has sucked big time this year. Has really regressed. Walton should not be a starter. Hoping Coughlin decides to move Richburg to C and insert Schwartz back in.

Jennings has been great.

Eli has looked markedly better. While Eli is completing passes, theyre not always placed well. He also needs to do a much better job of throwing deep. Hes missed on some.

OBJ, I dont think I need to say much about him. He's shown what he can do despite no training camp or preseason. I remember pre-draft I was clamouring for him if we were to go receiver.

Randle is making strides but obviously losing Cruz and Jernigan is devastating.

I am actually hoping we try to go after Hakeem Nicks as a 3rd or 4th WRs.

He hasnt had the touches I think he was expecting in Indy and maybe cheap. This year the guy pretty much didnt put too much wear and tear on his body, so given his relationship with Eli, I think he may be a good signing for depth.

After the way he quit on this team I don't see the coaches/FO wanting him to be a part of the organization no matter the circumstances.

None of our losses were bad enough to make me drink to the point of being blacking out. That's a positive.

I know what you're thinking - the eagles game should have done that. But that was so bad it never even became a real game. I managed to just laugh at how poor we were playing.
