Will Sanchez play as well against the Pats? And can his performance be blamed on Coach Rex Ryan’s mouth?
The great AD will be running against a struggling group of Lions; will records be broken?
Will Trent Edwards listen to TO’s public cry to be involved more?
Why can’t Donovan McNabb play with a broken rib? Plenty of other QB’s have played with the same injury….Big Ben.
Will the Giants go into Dallas and win?
There are three components if the Giants are to defeat the Cowboys tomorrow.
1. The earth better light on fire tomorrow about the playing of RB’s Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. The obvious weakness is the WR spot for the Giants. Talented teams like the Cowboys will take advantage, knowing some of the rookies are playing in their second pro-game ever.
The Dallas defense will know that running the ball is most likely what Eli Manning will relay on. That leaves responsibility on Jacobs and Bradshaw to bring their A-game.
DeMarcus Ware will be looking for blood as he has been a sack machine in the past against the Giants with Eli as the bull’s-eye.
2. O-line is top in the NFL so make the blocks to give the earth on fire room to roar.
Eli also needs some good blocking in the pocket to give him some time to hit a receiver.
3. Kevin Boss will be the guy who I would think Eli would throw some short passes too.
Boss is a talented Tight End but unlike Shockey he does not fumble. Eli can use Boss to muddle-up the Cowboys defense and the rate of productive completions is more dependable.
And obviously the Defense for the Giants have to play lights-out. Any NFL team has to have a demolishing defense to produce wins.
The reason the D-Men were not on the list is because I think that is the strength that is consistent for the New York G-man. It is their play that keeps us even contending to be a force to reckon with. It is the game playing lead by Manning that everyone will see on full display tomorrow.
Then opinions and questions will start to get answered.
