Giants Pre Game dumpster fire thread

Woof...

0-5 vs 1-4.. Anyone actually going to sit through the whole thing? Luckily for me I won't be home until about Halftime.

Kyle Allen will start per Ron.

I'm going Giants 26 - No named bums 20

Re: Giants Pre Game dumpster fire thread

I thought that I read yesterday that Smith was named the starter

JP Finlay also just tweeted that Allen is the starter. Smith is the backup.

The Smith story was nice but he's just not good enough anymore. I know it wont happen but I wish there was some way they could figure out how to make DH the backup. The only way they will be able to get anything for him is if they boost his trade value and sitting him out the rest of the year doesn't do that.

Re: Giants Pre Game dumpster fire thread

Iíll watch if Kyle starts, Iím not watching anytime Alex Smith takes the field. Itís theatrical bullshit and has nothing to do with winning football games if he plays. Itís more Dan Snyder drama, folks need to call it out. Alex needs to be cut this offseason immediately

Why do you even need to say this? Allen has been declared the starter.

Now I'm no expert but usually in such situations that means the backup only sees the field if the starter gets injured.

Smith showed he shouldnít be on the field or on the team.

2 years, 17 surgeries, almost had his leg amputated, comes back for the first time and plays the second half in shitty conditions with a terrible supporting cast and an offensive line that is truly offensive. But yeah I agree, cut him no slack.

Really? Lol. Allen looked pretty similar until he got hurt and they both looked better than Haskins. We have three backup quarterbacks but Smith would probably be quite capable after more game reps.

Why? He earned the right to be on the field and was better than Haskins. Im sure he would continue to improve. He is no more danger to break anything than anyone else right now.

Hell yeah I'm gonna sit through the whole thing. We're not even guaranteed 16 games this year with all the 'rona bs going around, you best believe I'm gonna watch every game (at least until they get out of hand). Last week was a pure dumpster fire and I still watched all of it.

Also yeah this could definitely be another L because the Giants definitely improved on offense against the Cowboys.

Exactly. I know we suck but we only get maybe 16 of these things. Hell yeah Im going to watch it. And rewind it and slow mo plays .. its going to take me 6 hours to watch this bitch.

(but we are so deprived of redskins induced dopamine. watching the caps or terps basketball, it is so much funner and more meaningful watching your home town team kicking ass. the DMV was so much happier during the Nats champ run, people wearing their gear, mailman talking with strangers about the game etc ... Skins have let down our whole region for way too long)

Chase Young - going up against fellow top pick LT Andrew Thomas. I think Chase will feast and get 2 sacks.

Fuller - nice to see him some more

Martin - can he anchor better, can he not get pushed back? the clock is ticking on this young man. How will he respond.

Cowboys D isn't as good as Washington's. There is no way the Giants can stop your front four and with no Barkley they must pass. The Giants Defense is playing better and should match up well with your Offense but I am looking at the Washington Defense to score here.

Re: Giants Pre Game dumpster fire thread

Chase Young a couple weeks removed from his groin injury, and getting Holcomb back should help the D. Getting Scherff back should help the O line. No reason they can't get the W today...we'll see...
