    "Whatever words you want to use to describe it, there's no production"......Tom Coughlin. The Giants need to do some rethinking or we'll be getting a repeat of last season.

    Tom Coughlin is the best. The Jags should have never gotten rid of him. Don't worry Giants fans. Camp Coughlin is not over. He will coach em up. If you will remember, the Jacksonville offense took a hit when Gilbride left also. Something about Coughlin and Gilbride where their minds just melded as you can see from the two superbowl wins.

    The only thing worst then picking games for fun is getting them all for nothing. :)

    Ps games are too short. More penalties ref.

    I find it hard to tell anything at all from pre-season. They play the starters so sparingly, and even then aren't going all-out and really running what they would in a regular season game. It is usually night vs day once the regular season starts.

    Aside from a rookie standout every now and then, the regular season usually bears no resemblance to the preseason.

    Agreed. Remember how the Lions went 4-0 preseason and 0-16 regular season?

    Sent from the jaws of my Hammerhead!

    Correcto!
    If my team goes 0-4 in preseason, I recall how it's not a precursor to the regular season. If they go 4-0, I think, "Damn, they're good!" (then they lose the first three games of the real season.) :)

    Every once in a while, the good teams happen to do well in the preseason just because their opponents aren't trying hard either... so it works to balance the performance and the better team wins. But I remember lot of years when some of the best teams barely won a game in preseason in part because they knew what they had and didn't want to tip their hand for the regular season.

    Now, if you see a particularly inept performance, that could be a bad sign... You can't tell the actual performance as such, but if your QB is making poor decisions in the preseason when the pressure is low, you can bet those bad decisions will come frequently in the real games.

    Giants were preaching an up tempo offense I haven't seen anything close to that. I will wait and see what happens on the next preseason game. When the starters will play into the 3rd quarter.

    I'd like to, and I have a son who'd like to.

    Me, I'm with the Niners even though I live a bit closer to the Raider Nation.

    As long as one of the second 8's starts today, I hope better for them!

    When is the "NFC EAST" championship game? Is there even one? I'm not aware of such a game on the schedule. :)

    Sounds like a home game for 49ers

    Great opening day. Eagles did a nice turn around in the second half and the 49ers trounced the Cowboys! Looking forward to tomorrow's Giants vs Lions game.
