A Guide: Stats To Address the Most Common Championship RB Questions

This is my first post, but I've been looking at A LOT of stats and I've seen this question or something similar close to a million times within the last few days. I myself am stuck in this exact conundrum, so I figured I would help out the Reddit community while gaining some knowledge as well. Here is a comprehensive list of season stats per team, weather conditions, and miscellaneous game info. I hope this helps most of you make a decision and brings home the chip!
WEATHER:
Minnesota Vikings vs. GB Packers: DOME
Oakland Raiders @ LA Chargers: Carson, CA 1:05PT, Partly Cloudy with 50% chance of showers, 90% chance of showers (up to half inch) after 5PM. SE Winds 10-15mph.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ NY Jets: E Rutherford, NJ 10:00PT, Sunny, 46 degrees, 10% chance of precipitation. WSW Winds 5-10mph.
BETTING LINES:
GB vs. MIN 46 (Vikings -5.5)
OAK vs. LAC 45.5 (Chargers -7)
PIT vs. NYJ 37 (Steelers -3)
DEFENSE:

GB Packers 26th 1693 14 108.8 4.6
LA Chargers 22nd 1544 11 103.4 4.1
OAK Raiders 20th 1481 13 118.8 4.1

OAK Raiders 4.3 60% 17% 19th 19th
PIT Steelers 4.56 52% 24% 24th 24th
CONCLUSION:
Obviously, this is an opinion based on statistics and definitive assumptions that all players will be given the start (mainly referring to Boone).
Before I make my pick I will make some quick opinion notes:
All that being said, my pick to win you your championship is...
Mike Boone (MIN): If we make our decisions based on points, defense, offensive lines, and usage, it can be assumed that Boone would have the most opportunity for points. Not only does Green Bay allow the most rushing yds to the position, but the Vikings have the perfect set up for the starting RB to have the highest opportunity for big plays/RZ conversion. Very rarely does the MIN O Line allow for RBs to lose yds, making Boone a viable option for positive gains. We don't really have a good sample size since he's the 3rd stringer; however, Zimmer likes his RBs to be identical clones even down to the hairstyle. Cook is 5'10/209 lbs, Mattison 5'11/220lbs, and Boone 5'10/205lbs. This is relevant because we can assume the usage would be similar, if not the same, as Cook. I need to clarify that I do not believe Boone is as talented or better than the other two Minnesota backs, but he is going into this game with a positive game script. Although Boone did not receive for yardage during week 15, we cannot dismiss the opportunity for rush attempt volume, goal line carries, and points allowed by defense to the RB position. If PPR is a deal breaker for you, Conner no doubt has the best hands, but we lose out on the upside of a competent OLine, playoff seeding game, and high implied point total. It should be noted that Green Bay is currently sitting 14th against the pass and 6th against the QB. In other words, Cousins will be looking to get the ball out quickly; making it safe to assume we'll see plenty of rush attempts. In the end, I truly believe Boone is the safest play this week - again, assuming all goes according to plan. Keep an eye on the reports for the rest of the week in regard to the unrevealed Mattison injury.
In the event you do not have Boone, or Mattison surprisingly makes an appearance, my ranked list is as follows (note: this list does not reflect ALL RB2/3 players - only those inquired in the comments):
  1. CMC
  2. Saquon Barkley
  3. Derrick Henry
  4. Ezekiel Elliott
  5. Chris Carson
  6. Joe Mixon
  7. Nick Chubb
  8. Mark Ingram II
  9. Mike Boone
  10. Leonard Fournette
  11. Alvin Kamara
  12. Aaron Jones
  13. Miles Sanders
  14. MGIII
  15. Todd Gurley II
  16. Kenyan Drake
  17. Austin Ekeler
  18. Marlon Mack
  19. Washington
  20. Conner
  21. Singletary
  22. Mostert
  23. Philip Lindsay
  24. Lev Bell
  25. Devonta Freeman
I hope this helps some of you out when making a decision for this weekend. I wish you all the best of luck during your week 16 championship matchups! Let's win this thing!
Note: All data comes from AccuWeather, Football Outsiders, Fantasy Footballers, Pro Football Reference, CBS sports, and the NFL.
EDIT: Thank you all for the positive feedback and faith in my research. Due to high demand, I added a number other players that were frequently asked about on this thread to the final rankings just above. Pass along edit nicely to those I have not responded to. Unfortunately, I'm on the west coast so the games will start soon. In order to get this info out to you quickly, I just added the requested players to the list at the bottom! I did the same research on the added players (e.g., weather, DST opp rank, Offensive Line rank, etc.). Good luck out there! It is the way.
Edit #2: It has come to my attention that Oakland is to be without Brown and Incognito on the O Line. Two massive parts of the Raiders offense, for that reason I moved Washington down significantly.

[Game Preview] Week 8 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-4) at Buffalo Bills (5-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at Buffalo Bills (5-1)
The Eagles road trip struggles got worse as they were thoroughly embarrassed by their division rival on primetime last Sunday. The look to salvage a win on their three game road trip as they take on the 5-1 Bills on Sunday. Finding a win against the tough Bills defense led by former Eagles DC Sean McDermott will be no easy task. McDermott learned from one of the best in late Jim Johnson and his attacking defense will look to shutdown Carson Wentz. It will be up to Doug Pederson and the Mike Groh to put together a game plan to keep the Bills on their toes and slowdown the Bills attacking offense. On the defensive ball Jim Schwartz’s defense has been shredded the last two weeks. Schwartz remains stubborn as he continues to leave his corners out to dry opting instead to lend more help to stop the run despite being the 29th ranked pass defense in the league. The Eagles got a boost last week in Jalen Mills returning at his corner spot for the first time in over a year. Mills had an interception and played tight coverage for most of the day, but he alone wasn’t enough to stop the high powered Cowboys offense. Allen isn’t the QB that Dak or Cousins are, but he still has a cannon and a dangerous deep threat in John Brown who has torched the Eagles in the past when he was on the Cardinals. Schwartz will need to put his guys in the right position or this game could be filled with some big plays to Brown and allow the Bills to do what they prefer which is pound the rock and eat up clock. This game should determine if the Eagles are buys or sellers next week at the trade deadline. The Birds are going to need to man up and come out of here with a win if they want to make it to the post season for the 3rd consecutive season. Go Birds!

Eagles 23 - Bills 20
Sam Bradford and a tenacious defense ruined LeSean McCoy's homecoming. McCoy had 74 rushing yards and 35 receiving in his first game back in Philadelphia after Chip Kelly traded the All-Pro for the oft injured Kiko Alonso. But the effort wasn’t enough to overcome Sam Bradford and the Eagles Bradford threw for 247 yards, including a 53-yard TD to Nelson Agholor. The Bills had chances at the end of the game, but Caleb Sturgis kicked a 30-yard field goal with 3:26 left, Ed Reynolds intercepted Tyrod Taylor's pass in the final minutes and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Buffalo Bills 23-20 on Sunday.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagle stunk it up for the 2nd consecutive week. They came out flat from the get go and basically looked to give the game to the Cowboys turning the ball over with back to back fumbles on their first two series. The team never looked like they had their heart in the game and just wanted the game to be over by halftime outside of a few players. Malcom Jenkins was one of them as he was ran over on back to back plays by Zeke Elliott for a touchdown that was overturned and then one that wasn’t. The Cowboys ran all over the highly touted Eagles run defense to the tune of 189 yards. Playing the clock game and wearing out the defense after they were firmly ahead and lead most of the day. The Eagles coaching staff did not have their team prepared for this game and it showed from the opening quarter as the Eagles fell 37-10 to their rival.
Bills
Video Against the winless Dolphins, the Bills trailed at halftime 14–9 following a strong second quarter from Miami QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was Buffalo's starter from 2009 to 2012. The Dolphins looked to extend their lead in the third quarter, but CB Tre'Davious White intercepted Fitzpatrick at the Buffalo 2-yard line. The Bills then regained the lead with two Josh Allen touchdown passes to receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley, respectively, with the latter occurring after White forced the Dolphins to fumble near their 30-yard line. Though the Dolphins scored again later in the fourth quarter, the Bills iced the game after safety Micah Hyde returned Miami's ensuing onside kick for a touchdown.] With the win, the Bills improved to 5–1 for the first time since 2008.

Philadelphia has registered a 7-6 (.538) all-time record vs. Buffalo in a series that dates back to 1973. The Eagles are 3-4 (.429) in games played at New Era Field.
Since 2003, Philadelphia has won 3 of its previous 4 games vs. Buffalo. The Eagles defeated the Bills, 23-20, at home in their last meeting on 12/13/15.
Philadelphia owns the No. 6-ranked rushing defense (89.6) in the NFL. The Eagles also rank 1st in that category since 2016 (including playoffs), allowing 92.8 rushing yards per game.
Philadelphia has produced the 5th-best third-down offense (48.4%) in the NFL, behind Dallas (51.9%), Oakland (50.0%), L.A. Chargers (48.9%) and Houston (48.9%). The Eagles’ 48.4% third-down conversion rate is the team’s 3rd-best mark through 7 games since at least 1991, trailing only the 1994 (51.0%) and 2017 (50.6%) campaigns.
Carson Wentz ranks 2nd among NFL QBs in passing TDs per game (2.16) since 2017, behind Patrick Mahomes (2.71). Wentz is also tied with Matt Ryan for the 5th-best passer rating (100.0) in the NFL in that span, trailing only Mahomes (112.1), Drew Brees (108.8), Russell Wilson (104.4) and Deshaun Watson (130.3) (min. 500 attempts).
Miles Sanders is the first NFL RB to post 450+ scrimmage yards (450) and 250+ return yards (259) in their first 7 career games since Adrian Peterson in 2007 (927-324). Sanders leads all NFL rookies with 709 all-purpose yards.
Jordan Howard ranks 3rd among NFC RBs (9th in NFL) in rushing average (4.51), behind Dalvin Cook (5.45) and Christian McCaffrey (4.87) (min. 75 attempts). Howard also ranks 4th in the NFL (leads NFC) in rushing first down % (26.1%), trailing only Mark Ingram (28.3%), Carlos Hyde (27.0%) and Marlon Mack (26.1%) (min. 75 attempts)
Since 2003, Philadelphia has produced a 40-24-1 record vs. AFC opponents, marking the 4th-highest interconference winning percentage (.623) in the NFL in that span (also the best mark among NFC teams).
Buffalo and Philadelphia don’t share a deep history. However, it should be noted that Philadelphia was the only current NFC East team that did not beat the Bills in their four-year Super Bowl stretch.

Stats to Know
QBs under pressure
Among the 31 NFL quarterbacks with at least 50 pressured dropbacks this season, Eagles’ Carson Wentz ranks first in PFF passing grade (81.3), fourth in yards per attempt (8.3) and fifth in NFL passer rating (85.7). He has completed 40-of-82 attempts for 579 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions across his 100 pressured dropbacks on the year. On the other side only Mitchell Trubisky has a lower grade than Bills second-year quarterback Josh Allen on throws of 10-plus air yards among the 26 signal-callers with 50 or more throws of such depths through Week 7. Allen has completed just 32-of-63 attempts on such throws for 663 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Including plays nullified by penalty, Allen has logged just four big-time throws and five turnover-worthy plays when throwing 10 or more yards down the field.
Matchups to Watch
The Bills passing attack vs the Eagles secondary
Josh Allen is nowhere near the level of Kirk Cousins and Dak Prescott who have shredded the Eagles secondary in back to back weeks, but Allen does have a strong arm and two receivers who have given the Eagles trouble in the past. John Brown has faced the Eagles 3 times while with the Cardinals and scored a touchdown in each of those meetings. Allen loves to go deep to the speedy Brown who has turned himself into a number one wideout the last two seasons. Look for the Bills to exploit the Eagles slow corners with go routes and double moves on the opening series, two things they struggle to defend. Schwartz has been stubborn, refusing to give his corners help over the top and I don’t expect that to change Sunday despite the threat of the deep ball from Allen. Schwartz will most likely stack the box and force Allen to beat him, which hasn’t worked out for Schwartz outside of the Jets game against the now unemployed Luke Falk. In the slot the Eagles will also see a familiar face as they line up against Cole Beasley. The scrappy Beasley has given Eagles corners fits over the years with the Cowboys. Beasley creates matchup problems and is great at finding the open part of the field on 3rd downs. Sidney Jones will most likely be asked to defend Beasley has he returns from a hamstring injury. Jones has failed to live up to his hype a projected first round before the injury, but the Eagles need him to step up Sunday to shutdown Beasley in the slot.
Eagles WRs vs the Bills Secondary
The Eagles WRs have not been good this season outside of Desean Jackson who has been missing following his 158 yard 2 TD game against the Redskins to open the season. The rest of the WRs have been one of the worst units in the league having the fewest yards per target when you take out Jackson and his 17.11 average. They have not only failed to get separation and get open for Carson Wentz, but they also lead the league in dropped passes. Someone is going to need to step up Sunday as they take on the Bills who are allowing 201.3 passing yards per game (4th best in the NFL), 5.9 yards per pass attempt (3rd best in the NFL), and they have allowed just one pass of 40+ yards (tied for best in the NFL). The Bills secondary is led by CB Tre'Davious White who leads the Bills with 3 INTs this season. The one advantage the Eagles WRs do have is size as the Bills corners are all 6’0ft or shorter and under 200lbs, so the Eagles WRs should have the advantage on any 50/50 balls. That said it is unlikely anyone from this unit impresses against the strength of the Bills defense.
Eagles Pass Rush vs the Bills Offensive Line
The Eagles pass rush looks like a shell of itself, if you take out the Jets game they only have 7 sacks in the other 6 games. However, the Eagles have some matchups they should be able to exploit this game. Brandon Graham who leads the Eagles with four sacks this season will be matched up against rookie Cody Ford. The rookie has struggled in pass protection this season giving up 4 sacks on the year so far. Jon Felicano has the second lowest grade on the Bills OL according to PFF sitting at 59.3. The scrappy guard will be lining up against Fletcher Cox who has struggled to get going this season as he returns from injury. Feliciano has allowed 1 sack and 8 pressures so far this year. If Graham and Cox can win their matchups and play in the Bills backfield it could be big in forcing turnovers. Allen has 7 INTs and 5 fumbles in his second season, DL needs to be disruptive and get Allen seeing ghosts to force him into mistakes. If the Eagles defense can force some turnovers and put their offense in good field position it will go a long way on getting some points on the board against a strong Bills defense.
Eagles Running backs and Tight Ends vs the Bills Safeties and Linebackers
As mentioned above the Eagles WR is abysmal without Desean Jackson in the lineup, so someone will need to step for Carson Wentz. Goedert and Ertz are probably the most talented TE dou in the league, but Pederson and Groh have struggled to use them as effectively as the Patriots utilize Gronk and Hernandez when they were paired together. The two big TEs should have a size advantage, however the Bills have allowed the second fewest receptions, second fewest yards and no TDs to Tight Ends this season. One possible outlet may be the speedy Miles Sanders who has flashed as a receiver this season. James White was the leading WR for the Patriots in the Bills one loss this season. If Pederson and Groh can get their head out of their asses and better highlight Sanders in the passing game it could mean a big day for the rookie and lead to points on the scoreboard.

[Game Preview] Week 17 - Philadelphia Eagles(8-7) at New York Giants (4-11)

Philadelphia Eagles (8-7) at New York Giants(4-11)
While I think Godfather 3 is a terrible movie, I think a line from Al Pacino’s Michael Corleone sums up my feelings best with his line in the movie, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”. And much like that scene it may give me a heart attack in the end, but right now the Eagles control their own destiny. The only thing standing in their way is their division rival the 4-11 New York Giants. While the Eagles have won their last six meetings against their division rival, many of those games have come down to the final minutes and seconds, I think we can expect the same this week as the Eagles will be without Zach Ertz this week and Carson Wentz will once again be throwing to backups. He will get some help in the backfield with Jordan Howard returning to the lineup for the first time in a couple weeks giving the Eagles a true powerback to compliment Miles Sanders. Don’t be surprised to see the Eagles rely on the run this week to get the win against their division rival on the road. Go Birds!

Stats to Know
Deep Passing
On the season, these two teams have been rather unimpressive in the deep passing game, although there should be a distinction made between Manning and Jones at the helm for the Giants. In his 4 games this season, Eli has actually been near tops in the league of deep passing % (8th, at 13.6%), 5th in Adjusted Completion % (50%)—which accounts for drops—but 18th in Passer Rating at 89.6, which is to say that the fault has largely been on the receivers. Meanwhile, Jones falls at 26th in Deep Passing % (10.2%) 26th in Adjusted Completion % (35.7%), and 23rd in Passer Rating on Deep Balls (77.1). For the Eagles, Wentz comes in at 20th in Deep Passing % (12.0%), 12th in Adjusted Completion % (44.1%), and 26th in Passer Rating on Deep Balls (71.9), where the disparity between AC% and Passer Rating would indicate receiver fault, as well.
Matchups to Watch
Daniel Jones vs the Eagles Pass Rush
Last time these two teams faced off it was Eli Manning at the helm due to Jone’s ankle injury, but Jones returned last week to lead the Giants to a victory over the Redskins. The final game of his rookie season will be his first introduction to Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham whom have been a thorn in the side of Eli Manning since each have entered the league. Manning has responded by getting the ball out quickly and frequently checking the ball out to safety valves. It will be interesting to see what Jones does in his first game against the Eagles. Jones holds the ball a full .2 of a second longer than Manning on average and the 11th longest in the league tied with Josh Allen who the Eagles terrorized and sacked 4 times in their meeting earlier this season. If the Eagles pass rush starts getting to Jones early it could be a long day for the rookie especially if he starts turning the ball over.
The Giants secondary vs the Eagles Passing attack
The Eagles will again be out their top 3 wide receivers again as Jeffrey and Jackson are on the IR and Nelson Agholor has been ruled out again. This week Wentz will also be without his top target Zach Ertz who has been ruled out with a chest injury. Wentz was able to carry the team last week against another division rival in the Cowboys throwing for 319 yards and a TD passing to backup TE Dallas Goedert who was Wentz’s top target with 91 yards. Look for Wentz to lean on Goedert again along with Greg Ward who has been become a favorite and reliable target for Wentz since being brought up from the Practice Squad. The Giants have the 26th ranked passing defense and Wentz was able to pick them apart 3 weeks ago when he threw for 325 yards and 2 TDs in a similar situation with backups. He should be able to have a similar performance this week especially if he can get some help with the return of power back Jordan Howard, to help keep the Giants pass rush honest.
Jim Schwartz vs himself
Last week the Eagles defense was superb in shutting down Dak Prescott and the Cowboys. Schwartz went away from many of his tendencies. Rather than leaving his corners in cover-1 the entire game he mixed up coverages and utilized some stunts on the DL along with some well timed blitzes to keep Prescott uncomfortable. If Schwartz can employ a similar game plan against Jones it should lead to a win for the Eagles. However, time and time again after putting up a good game plan one week Schwartz slips back into his affinity for Cover-1 and hoping his DL can line up and beat their guys. If Schwartz falls back to this like he did in many of the losses this season Jones may end up with season highs in yards just like Fitzpatrick did this season for Miami where he picked apart Schwartz’s Cover-1 scheme. Let’s hope that is not the case and he and put the Eagles defensive players in the best position to make plays and win the game.

[Game Preview] Week 14 - Philadelphia Eagles(5-7) vs. New York Giants (2-10)

Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) vs New York Giants(2-10)
It is hard to stay positive about this team after laying an egg last week to one of the worst teams in the league in the Miami Dolphins. Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to own Jim Schwartz no matter what team he is on and how bad they might that year Schwartz refused to make adjustments with some reason leaving guys in run support against the league’s worst rushing offense and thought it was better to stay in cover-1 as opposed to give his corners help over the top. With that putrid performance the Eagles dropped to 5-7, yet somehow miraculous still control their own destiny to make the playoffs if they win their remaining 4 games, all against division rivals (NYG(2-10), @WAS(3-9), DAL(6-7), @NYG(2-10). A task that looks completely doable, though no guarantee especially after last weeks disaster. The first of those games will occur Monday night when the Giants make the trip down I-95 for a sorry excuse of Prime Time football with two teams both in the red. The Eagles will probably see an old face one last time as Eli Manning will be getting the start for the first time week 2 for the injured Daniel Jones. The Eagles have taken it to the Giants in the last 5 years going 9-1 in that span and will look to continue that dominance if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Giants are in the middle of a rebuild and should be a team the Eagles can get it going against as they have deficiencies on both sides of the football. If the Eagles can get the offense going and limit Barkley they should be able to come away with a win and take their first ever lead in the eeries history with the Giants. Go Birds!

Eagles 25 - Giants 23
The Eagles injury riddled defense was able to do just enough for Carson Wentz and the injury riddled offense to find a groove and get the running game going. The Giants jumped out to a 12 points lead early thanks to a Saquan Barkley TD pass and a pair of field goals from Rosas, but the Eagles answered with a field goal of their own to make it 12-3. The Giants responded with a 51 yard Saquan Barkley TD run to give the Giants a 16 point lead. The Eagles traded blows answering with a Zach Ertz TD pass from Carson Wentz and an interception to close out the half. The Eagles got a their running game going in the second half and took the lead in the 4th quarter on a Josh Adams TD run to take a 3 point lead. The Giants were able to move the ball and even it at 22 with just under 6 minutes to play. The Eagles were able to move the ball down the field chewing up clock for Jake Elliott to kick a game winning field goal with 22 second left in the game. With limited time and deep in their own territory the Giants weren't able to get anything going to give the Eagles the win and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Stats to Know
The Blind Side
Let us compare LTs Nate Solder to Jason Peters/Andre Dillard this season, shall we? Of Offensive Linemen, Solder is currently tied for 3rd-most Sacks Allowed (9), tied for 6th in Hits Allowed (7), and has allowed the 4thd-most Hurries (29). That amounts to the greatest number of total Pressures allowed, thus far (45). In all of 2019, Solder only allowed 33 Pressures. Jason Peters has allowed 1 sack, 3 hits, and 11 hurries, while Dillard has allowed 4 sacks, 4, hits, and 13 hurries = combined 5 sacks, 7 hits, 24 hurries
Matchups to Watch
Giants Pass Defense vs Eagles Passing Offense
Another week, another stoppable force meeting a movable object, but this time on Monday Night Football. The Eagles Offense was able to perform well, even with mistakes, against a bad Dolphins offense last week. While they could have scored more points, when your defense let’s up 37 against a trash offense, there are bigger causes for concern. Like Miami, the Giants defense is straight booty cheeks. The only difference is the Giants don’t have the tanking excuse to hang their hat on. This is a defense that is 28th in opposing passer rating, 27th in pass plays of 20+ yards, 31st in pass plays of 40+ yards, and 30th in pass defense by DVOA – barely better than Miami. One area where the Giants can hang their hat on is their 11th ranked rush defense by DVOA… really making a difference, eh? The Eagles passing offense has another cupcake matchup this week they must take advantage of despite the calls to run more. It doesn’t mean to pass every play, it means they must find a way to get a bad receiver group open regularly. Alshon Jeffery is fresh off his best game of the year. While he does look like he is slowing down pretty quickly, he is still the Eagles best Wide Receiver. Nelson Agholor finally didn’t hurt the team and JJAW got his first career touchdown reception. Carson Wentz had a good but not flawless game against Miami that he hopefully builds off of. Wentz was 3rd in aggressiveness percentage indicating the receivers still aren’t getting enough separation and the scheme not helping them get open more regularly. This is concerning given the dearth of talent on the Miami roster. The Giants also have a dearth of talent in their secondary, led by rookie DeAndre Baker, who has been one of the worst DBs in the NFL this season. The Giants found someone to give Jalen Mills a run for his money. Janoris Jenkins is still the Giants best option at CB and the only one capable of playing man coverage despite being in the downside of his career, but even he isn’t playing well anymore. Their safety spots are a black hole. They still have Alec Ogletree and he is still terrible in coverage. This is a juicy matchup for a bad Eagles offense they need to take advantage of. Given what they scored last week, and the meat left on the bone, that shouldn’t and can’t be an issue for the Eagles on Monday.
Giants Passing Offense vs Eagles “Passing Defense”
As I’ve said the last few weeks, the Eagles recent surge on defense was more of a mirage than an actual turn around in performance. Ryan Fitzpatrick went God mode turning Devante Parker into Jerry Rice for 60 minutes as the Eagles defense was dry-humped up and down the field in spectacular fashion. This secondary cannot cover or make plays on the ball. They struggle to tackle. They can’t communicate. They are a mess. Week 13 does serve as an outlier to a degree; meaning, Fitzpatrick was nearly flawless, Parker made every single big catch he could, etc. Everything broke the Dolphins way in week 13, but they attacked the Eagles in the way every opposing offense should to find success… through the air! Fortunately, the Giants also have garbage tier QB play on the menu Sunday with Derps McGee – Eli Manning – retuning to the starting lineup in place of a banged up Danny Turnovers. Even though the Eagles defense does have a habit allowing mediocre players to turn into Hall of Famers, this is still a favorable matchup for them. Eli is in the waning days of his interesting career having been close to washed for some time. He’s not an aggressive passer and his arm strength is fading by the minute. While that plays into the Eagles favor since he’ll struggle to his big plays through the air if he attempts them at all, he’s still capable of hitting some quick timing plays underneath. The Giants may have Engram, Tate, and Shepard for this contest to go with stud rookie Darius Slayton and second year monster Saquon Barkley. Eli hasn’t played in some time so he should be rusty and out of sync with a receiver group that hasn’t played a full game together yet this year. The Eagles must be careful in their secondary, ensuring they play smart and tackle well. All of these players are able to win deep and after the catch. Given Eli’s current abilities, the former is likely out of the question. We’ve seen Eli quick strike this defense to death and could again. The defense cannot allow that to happen, especially against a poorly coached and scheme opposing offense.
Giants Offensive Line vs. Eagles Defensive Front
The Giants offensive line is still a below average unit on the whole but has made some steady improvements the last two years under Dave Gettleman. It’s probably the one area this guy can hang his hat on. Second year pro Will Hernandez is a bully at Left Guard and a good player that will continue to improve as he grows in this league. New right guard Kevin Zeitler has been dinged up on the season and is still the quality pass blocker he has been throughout his career. Journeyman center Joe Halapio is decent in the middle. This trio gives them a quality interior – it’s the tackles that let them down. Nate Solder has struggled mightily this season at Left Tackle after scoring big in Free Agency. Mike Remmers is still a below average offensive lineman playing right tackle. The Eagles interior rushers should find success on Sunday even though the Giants interior OL isn’t as poor as it once was, it’s the Defensive Ends that should feast in their matchups. And they need to since we all know the Eagles secondary just can’t cover anyone worth a damn. Derek Barnett, Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, and Vinny Curry all have plus matchups against inferior tackles. We’ve seen Eli play scared under pressure and can easily be forced into errant throws. Additionally, the defensive front needs to play smart and gap sounds in order to control Saquon Barkely on the ground. Barkley is a tremendous talent that is clearly slowed by an ankle injury he suffered earlier this season. Philadelphia cannot be reckless in their defense as Barkley is still capable of making them pay. This will help the Giants offense be in less favorable down and distance situations that can force them into making mistakes. It always starts up front with the Eagles and will remain that way as long as the secondary is a liability.

THIS...THIS is a SCOUTING REPORT. SORT OF.

PRE-RAMBLE: If you don't know who I am, just skip this, honestly, you won't like it so, why bother upsetting yourself on a game day that will likely end in us being victorious. We won't have a ton of wins this year so don't bother getting confused and bummed out by my stupid shit. Just skip this.
For the rest of you!! (read: for about 9 of you)
Don’t call this a comeback!!!
The reports are in; you miss me, well 4 of you miss me and that’s enough for this week at least. And to be honest, it’s probably the last of it.
Seriously, don’t this a comeback because I’m ghosting y’all after this one.
Why did I go away? Well, I’m still here I’m not just hated, a pariah even, because I have had the audacity to say that we may not be a very good football team. I only say that because our record is 4 wins 137 losses since our last Super Bowl, I think...I’m not sure though, I counted very quickly and completely in my head without checking the internet at all. I feel like I remember winning 4 games though, right? Maybe.
We seem to live in a world where you’re either called a Nazi or a Snowflake and there is no in between and that has spread to this, and every other sub. You either love the Giants and bow down to every move they make or you’re “not a real fan.” I love this team and I absolutely hate the owner and GM. Both things are possible, don’t @ me. Tase me bro, but don't @ me.
Father Tip: (I’m a dad now so I’m very wise) If you agree with anyone 100% of the time you lack intelligence or you aren’t paying attention.
To prove how much you must drink the Kool Aid there is a current post about how evil the Bad-Man-Baby-Fondler Jerry Reese was and how Poor-Old-Mr-Nice-Man Dave Gettleman is doing his, awh-shucks, best. Here’s the truth, they can both stink. One can be slightly better than the other, or they can both be decent for what they were asked to do when they were asked to do it. It’s pretty likely that they’re both okay and neither is great. Jerry Reese was the head of pro-player scouting and did a great job of bringing in talent off the streets, whereas DG was a head scout and his drafts prove that out.
We look back at Reese drafts with the benefit (really through the shit-colored glasses) of time and we look at Gettleman drafts through the lens of “if player X improves in year Y he’ll be great!” Remember how BJ Hill was going to be an All Pro player because he had a good game against the Bears last year and now he’s lost his starting job to a player who wasn’t good enough for the god damn Jets? Yeah, well remember Reuben Randle had 71 receptions for just under 1,000 yards? We are waiting to see what BJ Hill becomes and meanwhile we remember Randle as, well, not great player. In fact, most of us pretend Randle was pure trash.
I’m not saying Gettleman is a fat, worthless, arrogant, piece of shit just like I’m not saying the Reese was some smooth talking, handsome, young black man. I’m saying they’re both GMs in their respective days who, likely, should have remained scouts. Head scouts at that, but scouts because they both have strengths and weaknesses and being GMs isn't their strengths.
I always admired on Reese looked cool while making bad decisions. Thought that was fun, I wish Dave Gettleman didn’t look like an assistant, overnight manager at Duane Reade who doesn’t quite understand how pants fit.
Anyway, this is why I’m not around. I’m not around, insofar as doing these write ups, because of the decline from spirited conversation toward dogmatic hero worship. Also, John Mara is a dickless turtle who should get fucked in his ear until his brain starts making better decisions about his billion dollar product.
Also, this post is in response to a “what happened to him” post. Many of you have come to this sub after I stopped posting these so, for you, just know that I’m just some old fuck waving his cane at the internet. If anything these posts started as well crafted scouting reports with lots of dumb jokes and they slowly turned into drunken jokes with very few “facts” thrown in just to keep me honest (I was never honest, I’m not a reporter and nobody is fact checking me. I'm just an asshole who drinks too much.)
Anyway this is for jimhenderson novelliant hollenb1 stevo2115 elkgravey starvinart /uTheMisterIt and thatsyurblood even though he’s just here for the nintendo of it all – and especially for glaci0us who can’t get my fucking user name right.
GIANTS VS JETS RIVALRY
The Giants lead the all time series 8-5. What? Seriously? 13 whole fucking games? Why do people call this a rivalry? We’re in different divisions. We’ve never played a meaningful game against each other. We share the worst stadium in the league. Seriously, I’ve been to prisons, for work, all up and down the Hudson river and the ugliest prison I saw was MetLife Stadium.
The Snoopy Bowl??? Shut. The. Fuck. Up. First of all, Snoopy didn’t ever play football, if he weren't a cartoon he'd be a god damn dog. Charlie Brown at least tried to be a kicker but that stupid asshole Violet Gray, was a worse holder than Tony Romo in the playoffs and kept ruining it for Charlie. Seriously, that little girl charged for Psychiatry? You need a license for that shit and also, you’re mean to everyone and you’re a terrible person; what makes you think you could be a therapist?! Fuck her, fuck Snoopy, fuck corporate sponsored stadiums that still ask for tax dollars to be built, and fuck that giant cement turd in the middle of a swamp that has fancy blue or green lights depending on the Sunday. Fuck sharing. Especially fuck sharing with a redneck cousin, which is essentially what the Jets are.
Hey Jets, why don’t you move to Staten Island like the trash that you are.
(Note: I have only been to Staten Island once and found it lovely. This joke was cheap and doesn’t really mean much of anything so don’t get all offended like a whiny turd.)
If anything this is a sibling rivalry, at best. That is, if your younger sibling had just barely enough geneses to be considered a human – but definitely not the right amount. Having to share a stadium with these fucking turds is like when your mom bought you a new video game and half an hour into playing it she’s all like; “Okay, TheMisterIt let’s let your brother try it too.” And it’s like; “hey bitch, did you buy it for me or for thatsyurblood? Because you go away for 8-10 hours a day to work and for those hours I don’t have a mother, so maybe you could tell that job to give you enough money to buy 2 god damn video games. Hey, why don’t you take off your pants and send them to Aunt Carol...I think she should have a turn! You’ve had them on long enough.”
Or you know, maybe you have a better relationship with your mother, what do I know?
Point is, we don’t really hate the Jets for being the Jets, if anything we should hate that our parents are too god damn cheap to move us to our own apartments. Stick the Giants in Brooklyn, or Queens, or Meadowlands on the Hudson, leave us in Northern Jersey – I don’t care, just give us our own home and put a fucking roof on it so you can make money in the winter, you stupid, too proud to be “old school” morons.
“Why would we want to sell out our stadium in February for a Billy Joel concert followed by a week of sold Taylor Swift concert, when instead we can keep a roof off of it and make it look like a computer generated stadium in Madden ‘95?” says Mara, who I remind you, is dickless.
Let’s never forget that John Shitfuck Mara is the cowardly turtle grandson of a great man who gambled and cheated his way into being a very rich man. He was a god damn gangster! Meanwhile Little Johnny is all mushy mouthed and says things like; “mmmmmmmmI don’t know….I mean…..if the fans are sad about Eli not playing maybe I should hire a GM 100% based on the idea that he still thinks Eli is cute enough to get us wins.”
That’s not the apple falling far from the tree, it’s the apple falling off the tree and crying despite the fact that it is, in fact, an apple and not a human.
And shut up...I love Eli. I would encourage my wife blow him for 17 days straight if it meant he was able to stand in the pocket over the past 4 years and deliver the football like he knows he should have. But that just wasn’t going to happen because he was “seeing ghosts.” Or no wait, he was seeing actual players who were actually destroying him because he actually had an actually terrible offensive line. Just like Danny Dimes does currently.
The difference is Eli know AARP and Danny never lived in a world where he had to yell at one of his 93 siblings to get off the phone because he wanted to look up “key words: Bewbs.” The translation to that is Eli would die if he were hit and Danny is too young to know that he's slowly dying by playing football.
Rivalry? Nope. I don’t buy it. I don’t like them because growing up they were on TV after the Giants and it put me to sleep because I grew up in the era when the Jents sucked...which is every era save for about 6 seasons sprinkled in since they became a franchise.
A NOTE TO MR. BARKLEY, RB DAD
I used to have a father. He didn’t care about me much. We’d talk once in a while. But if I were good at anything in this world, which I am not, and found success in it, which I never will - he would come on board and support me and I have absolutely no questions about that.
Meanwhile, Saquon’s father is going to wear a fucking Jets jersey? How god damn pathetic is that?
This legit, all bullshit aside, makes me very sad for both of them. I don’t know their relationship and maybe it’s not my place to be sad for them but god damn it sounds fucking awful to have your own father at your game openly only half routing for you.
Of course Saquon is a home run hitter. Of course he’s also trying to turn a 2 yard gain into a TD, he grew up watching the Jets so from age 5 through 19 he only say 4 touchdowns scored by his favorite team. And his dad is a bigger fan of that than he is of his fully grown, other-worldly sperm.
I have a daughter and whatever she wants to do, I’ll support her. If she’s like; “Dad, I want to do porn because blowing penises is the greatest thing in the world so I’ve signed with Vivid Entertainment.” I will run out, that same day and get my Brazzers Tattoo removed. Or at least covered up.
I get that our fandom runs deep but if your a bigger fan of a jersey (that has different people wearing it every single year) than you are of the person your wife spent 2 years carrying and feeding from her body...a child who you worked your ass off to protect and love, if that jersey means more to you than that kid...I don't know man. I'm just sad as fuck for you.
(I looked up his name this morning and now I forgot it and I don’t want to spend another second thinking about him so that's why I didn't name him. I cannot stress this enough, this story breaks my heart for Saquon and Saquon is my dude so I’m now forever mad at his father on his behalf. We don’t know how much our parents have fucked us up until after they’re gone for a while and we do a lot of work on it - likely in therapy. This is definitely damaging to Saquon no matter what he says or even if he doesn’t realize it yet. His father is actively putting a sport above his family. That’s the least manly thing I’ve ever heard. It’s also the least motherly thing I’ve ever heard but in this case we aren’t talking about chicks brah. We’ll talk about chicks later )
WHEN THE JETS HAVE THE BALL
Imagine the scene, 3 years ago, Ben RoethlisDouble!uarterPounderWithCheeseAndSexualAssault, Antonio BrownSoundAlsoWithSexualAssault, and Le’vitation Bell were all on the same team and that team still couldn’t win it all. Imagine how difficult it would be for future Inbredskin’s coach Mike Epps to hold all that together without incident or really any meaningful victories with that talented and insane crew.
(Note the Inbredskins are so fucking stupid I bet Danny Snybro would actually hire Mike Epps just because he looks like that Pittsburg bro.)
Now imagine you were the best part of that trio and you spend an entire year not playing so you could be rewarded handsomely the following year. Only to be rewarded by being sent off to the ugly step-brother of NY, in a team who hired a coach seemingly just to make Pat Shurmur look like a genius by comparison. You almost have to feel bad for Bell but then again, he’s pretty fucking rich so he's clearly winning over us mere non-sports playing assfarts.
The Jests offense is as bad as they come, literally they're worst in the league in YPG, 2nd to last in PPG at 12 fucking points per game...what?! That's so bad it sounds fake and yet, somehow, as if by magic and cancer Washington is even worse.
They have decent skill players though. Sam Darnold was set back in his progression a bit this season by a few things; firstly he had his open mouth kiss and it made his tummy hurt so he had to take some time off, secondly Adam Gase sucked Peyton Manning’s dick into a 2nd head coaching job, and thirdly he might be fat? I don’t know. He’s got the round stupid face of a much fatter human. Is that why he sucks now? Will someone please tell me if he’s fat or if his face is just an inflatable safety device. Tell me!!!
By the way I rather like the new NY Jeff’s uniforms, they’re pretty cool. It’s the best part about their team. It’s almost like they’re not a bottom 5 organization in every single possible way – but they are. “Hey we may suck forever but check out this new shade of green!!” Fuck me, I fell for it. I like it.
Jesus. That was exhausting. Almost as exhausting as it would be to pretend that I’ve watched the Jeffs play a single game this season. I used to watch the team we were going to face every weekend before we faced them. But that was when I did this scouting reports before. I didn’t know I was going to write this up until there was a post BEGGGING (read: not a single person suggested) that I do another one. Also, last week they played the Dolphins. I picked the Dolphins in a survivor pool. That’s how little I think of the Jets. And yet, I’m scared we find a way to lose this game.
Anyway, Dam Sarnold is fine, I feel bad because Adam Gase may look like 3rd act of Philadelphia Tom Hanks but he coaches like first act of Forrest Gump Tom Hanks and that’s holding Samwise Darngy back...is he fat!? Is Sam Darnold fucking chubby or not!?
What to say about Adam Gase that has already been said by your asshole the morning after drinking 47 Bud Lights, eating a slice of pizza and then deciding that you should chase that down with an entire pizza but you’re going to cover it with hot sauce and then that hot sauce giving you a second wind so you drink 13 IPAs and think greasy ass chicken wings will really mend this bridge so you won’t fee sick the next day, and you smoke a joint a fall asleep. Then you wake up and think; “this is very much not my bed and this is very much not my home, I’ve got to get out of here.” You sit up and your head feels like a camera just pulled in tight on your face while playing a sad trombone into “Mad World” the Gary Jules version. You can barely stand, let alone sneak around. But when you get to your feet you realize, whomever’s home this is, you’re going to have to pay a visit to the toilet before you...no! You can’t!!! So you dash out of the house, half dressed, half retarded, and half dead – look at the sun because suddenly you think you’ll have a directional sense of where your home is, knowing that has never been the case before.
You stumble a block or two and you run into your cuntiest Aunt. Aunt Carol and you say; “Oh wow, nice pants!” And she says they were your mothers but she sent them randomly one day then she says she’s so glad you could make it to the brunch.
You think; “Brunch?” not realizing you said it aloud and she says; “Yeah, for Stacy’s wedding, it’s at the diner here.” You think about how that’s definitely a breakfast and not a brunch but you look up to see the diner and theres your god damn grandmother and she looks at you like a child at a puppy on Christmas so you have to go now. So you choke a turd back up into your asshole by about 4 feet and you put on a smile. “Hi Nana,” you say because despite being nearly 80 she says “grandma” makes her “feel old.” You go in, sit down and immediately order a coffee. You take three sips and it triggers something deep inside you and you stand to go to the bathroom but your stomach only allows you half stand, half crouch, you yell something about back pain as you shuffle to the bathroom, which is more spacious than you anticipated. You run for the first stall you see, it’s gross, there’s a swastika carved in the seat and slightly more piss on the seat than there is fresh water remaining on the Earth so you rip your pants down and hover, you’re barely aimed correctly as you start to fire and quickly learn why there’s often shit up the back of the bowl.
You ruin it. The toilet will never again be the same. You feel lighter. You’ve feel like you’ve shed the memories of 6 exes. And you hear a slightly southern voice on the other side of the stall saying; “hell yeah dude, that sounds amazing, get after it!” You wipe..you wipe again...fuck it, you wipe until you bleed and when you exit he’s still standing there, slowly clapping. It’s Peyton Manning. He’s the only person who appreciates Adam Gase and now you finally know why.
That toilet. That’s Adam Gase. (Imagine that were a port-a-potty instead of a diner, and you have Ben McAdoo.)
We’re similar offenses:
Oof, shall we talk about our defense here? Betcher was hired because he blitzed all the time in Arizona. Now he never blitzes. In part because why would he even bother? We can rush 11 and QBs still stand in there and have time to let the play develop. Our defensive roster is so gross that I actively spend a majority of my week drowning myself to try to induce some sort of water-logged-brain-CTE situation.
We haven’t drafted a good linebacker since I started ejaculating...I’m 40. We had a decent safety who left to get overpaid, fair. Fine. But we replaced him with CC Brown from the Browns and went and signed CC Brown from the Cardinals. I hope that Peppers ends up being a spicy player who is nothing to sneeze at but right now, he’s just a guy who is likely to be ground up in the passing game. I hope that Bethea goes away. And he will but not after really hurting us this year.
Janory Jenky has officially lost the right to be called Jckrbbit because he stinks and refuses to try for more than 10-15 plays a game. Baker’s problem in the draft was that people thought he lacked effort and relied on his natural talents to get by...it sure would be nice to at least see those natural talents that they were talking about.
Actually, I came on the board recently to defend him a bit, he’s done much, much better over the past few weeks. He still hasn’t been very good but he’s been better and that’s all I really want; to see the young players improve. So stop saying “this year is about getting better” and then also arguing that Baker is a piece of shit. Sure, he’s not great but he’s literally doing the one thing we all want. Imagine that, the president of the Dave Gettleman is a Fat Shit Fan Club defending a Dave Fat Shit Gettleman draft pick!!! It’s almost as if there is nuance in the world...who would have thunk it?
I have been told by many people that we have linebackers on our roster but I have seen no evidence of this.
I refuse to believe it/acknowledge them. Some players have LB numbers but really are playing DE in sub and those guys are Lorenzo “if he improves in year 2 we’ll be fine at edge rusher” Carter who has not really imporved at all in year two but has 2.5 sacks and 8 QB hits. Oshane “I know he went to small school but he’s going to be the steal of the draft” Ximines who has not really been much of a steal but played almost exactly to the level at which he was drafted, has 2 sacks and 4 QB. And Markus “Hey, alright!” Golden who leads the way with 5.5 sacks, 13 QB hits and gives more effort than just about anyone on the team.
(note: I think DG stinks at evaluating pro-level players and is a very, very excellent college scout. I think that he’s fantastic at drafting talent but it isn’t always the talent the team needs because he’s not great at roster construction. I’m very vocal about all of this as you’ve seen. And yet, I think signing Golden was a great move and he was absolutely right and I was absolutely wrong. Guess what; it’s okay to be wrong! Humility, especially when it’s involving something we have zero effect on, should be/can be easy.)
(Note on that note: part of why I didn’t want to do these is because I knew I’d use them to lecture at some point...sorry about that. Could delete it but I won’t because, let’s be honest, I really never edited these all that much and I’ve also preached a bunch in other spots too. Whatever. You can stop reading at any point.)
DL: one of the funniest things I read was about how Leonard Williams was telling his Giants’ teammates all about the Jats. I can only imagine that there is “Hard Knocks” style room where the entire team is sitting, knock on wood if you know what I mean, and Williams raises his hand in the air.
Head Coach Patrick J. (don’t know his middle initial) Shurmburn is like; “yes, Lenny?” Knock on wood if you like calling him Lenny.
Lenny; “Yo, coach, I think I know a thing or two about the BasicallyDolphins, if you know what I mean,” and an 80’s style laugh track plays out of nowhere, knock on wood if you feel me.
He comes to the front of the room and he looks very seriously at each player, which takes a long time because there are about 90 people in the room with the practice players, coaching staff, training staff, and a woman named Margo who just hangs around whenever they let her. Lenny is a bit shy but he clears his throat, looks down and collects himself before looking back up and saying; “they are pretty bad at football...um..that’s pretty much it.”
Knock on wood if you think the Raider’s season of Hard Knocks was the worst one ever.
Our DL is pretty decent. There isn’t a single player on it that really scares you but there are good players across the board. BJ Hill had a good game against the Bears last year, Dexter Lawrence is the Odell Beckham of DTs, Dalvin Tomlinson was drafted by Jerry Reese so you probably hate him, and RJ McIntosh tricks you every time you see him because you’re like; “90? Is that...oh no, wait though, who the fuck is it?”
Honestly, Lawrence was a frustrating draft pick and I was totally wrong, it looks like he’s going to be a complete stud.
WHEN THE GIANTS HAVE THE BALL
The line was together for every game this season, proving once again that consistency is the most important element to having a great offensive line...not counting “having good players.” Remmers will likely miss this game because his back has been broken since we last drafted a good LB and Halapio is out with Halitosis. That means we get to see...oh it probably won’t matter, if I’m being honest. Remmers has been bad and Halapio has been pronounced differently by every announcer this year and that’s about all we can say positive about him. I guess Gates and Pulley will get the start. Pulley is just as good as Talapia and Gates is, I mean who the fuck knows really?
Also out; Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram who are the only two pass catchers on the Giants to create any separation at all this season. Even still, it was about 9 yards.
And as I mentioned earlier, Saquon isn’t 100% and that’s clear by looking at him, watching him, touching him, and smelling him; and legally that’s all I’m allowed to do to him until I eventually take my fight all the way to the Supreme Court. Just let me taste the man! How will that hurt anyone?!
I think, lowkey, we really miss Corey Coleman. He would be our best KR, though Latimer did well in that role last week, and he would be a good outside receiver. No offense to Slayton, Latimer, and Fowler but they aren’t very good at football. They’re good at football, clearly, they’re in the NFL, actually they’re great at football, until you compare them to other NFL players and that’s when it all starts to fall apart for them. Maybe Slayton turns himself into a player, but I think we’re seeing what he is; he has the ability to make dynamic and great catches and follows that up with not being able to track the ball at all – which oddly has happened to him like at least 5 times since pre-season. I’ve never seen that before. He’s a fantastic athlete though and a bubble screen or a tap pass/reverse would be great to see. But Patricia is bad a play calling and utilizing the talent he has.
I hope I’m wrong about Slayton but I think he’ll be a rookie contract value guy who maybe sticks around for another season after that – which isn’t bad for a late draft pick like him. He’s certainly not going to win us any games this year by just taking over. And we really need that this week. We need some WR to really, really show up. So that really puts a lot on Tate.
Golden Tate he’s still a good player. He’s not super dynamic but he can catch and can run after the catch. He doesn’t get much seperation and we play him on the outside too much but I bet he gets 6 receptions because in 4/6 games this year he’s had 6 receptions so it seems like a decent guess.
CJ Mosley is the starting MLB and he’s out of this game. But he’s only played in 2 games this year so it won’t likely matter one way or the other. A sign of bad linebacker play is when safeties lead the team in tackles which Bethea and Peppers do for us. A very confusing stat is when your corners lead the team in tackles, which is the case for the Jetserbockers. How? Why? It’s not like teams have had to pass against them. So why do their corners lead their team in tackles? It has to be an awful sign.
They do have Jamal Adams who is a very good player that we are all thankful doesn’t have a star on the side of his helmet. That’s a good thing. We don’t need the Cowboys to be better at football. They’re already above average and we haven’t seen that since Tony Romo held that field goal just slightly off and the ball fell, and everything went to shit and fuck the Cowboys.
Gregg Williams is the DC in well, in our building but on off days. He’s clearly and obviously a scumbag, a bad person, and has horrible hair for a man his age. He’s also aggressive and not smart. He is known for having middle of the road defenses no matter what his roster is. He also runs a lot of 0 blitzes, which is just man to man and you send everyone else. It’s called a 0 blitz because that’s how much imagination it took to design it; zero. Fuck Gregg Williams. Did you know the extra G in Gregg stands for Fuck Gregg Williams? He’s still serving his life-time ban from coaching in the NFL, I think. I don’t really know.
Let’s talk Danny real quick. I like the kid. Okay...hows that? Enough? No? Okay fine.
Danny Dimes is great, or at least he will be great, or at least he might be great someday, or at least he’ll have great games from time to time. I don’t know. You don’t know. Nobody really knows. He has a problem turning the ball over. He fumbles and throws picks all too often. The interceptions don’t really bother me so much honestly. I’ve grown accustomed to them. It’s really the fumbles. Maybe he should put a glove on like Eli did to show; “I’m not really doing much to fix this but now the papers will leave me alone.”
It’s hard for me to say this, I think Danny may end up being better than Eli someday, I think he’ll reach higher highs. Oh, it doesn’t matter for tomorrow though.
He should be able to move the ball against the Getts.
Saquon is needed, so is Gallman. Honestly, Saquon is hurt and we don’t need a guy to run for 50 yards we need a guy who can run for 5 yards a pop so maybe, just maybe, until our #2 – all world running back is healthy we should use him sparingly. Especially since Gallman is better than people think. He’s a good player. Let him get the run. Meanwhile, Saquon is 35% of our future, Dimes is 40%, and 25% is full of players who aren’t on our roster and our guards. Engram and Shepard may be a part of this but I think Shep is starting to look at the short end of a short career and Engram is like Percy Harvin so much that I half expect him to beat the shit out of Golden Tate out of nowhere.
Also, Evan Engram smokes more weed than anyone reading this right now. There’s no way that dude doesn’t get high as fuck all the time. I love it! I love weed. We should all get high all the time. The world is a dystopian nightmare and weed helps you forget that for about 7 seconds and that’s pretty great. So does beer. I also love beer. But that shit is making me fat.
Wait, wasn’t I supposed to talk about Saquon? Meh, whatever, he’s fucking amazing, we all know that. He’s better when he tries to run for 8 yards as opposed to 80 but whatever, watching him run for 80 yards once in a while is so much god damn fun. I love watching him run. Watching him run is like watching Eli throw the sideline pass to Manningham in the last game we won. It’s like watching Sunday Night Football and knowing, deep in your heart, that Rodney Harrison still thinks about David Tyree catching that pass in the 2nd to last game we ever won.
Honestly I think of Saquon as I did Odell. They’re so god damn amazing that I don’t think we deserve them. Hear me out! We haven’t had a skilled position Hall of Famer (non-QB) since Frank Gifford. Yeah. That’s right. And we’ve got 2 in the Hall of Fame. Listen, I’m not saying that OBJ and Saquon are hall of famers, but they have the talent to be those and the only players we’ve had that even had that talent (again – non-QB because QB is about wins and that’s fucking stupid however you slice it) are Tiki and Shockey. And you guys hate them both. So I don’t know what to even tell you about that.
Anyway, growing up in the 80’s and 90’s I felt more nervous when our team was on offense because that’s when bad things happened. Defense, we always had good players and we made plays. So still, even now, when we have highly dynamic offensive skill players it feels wrong to me. Anyway, it feels so conflicting to have great offensive players. We deserve Reuben Randle and Sterling Shepard, decent players with obvious flaws. I don’t know, we’re the Giants, we’re the only blue collar thing left in NY. And when we have fancy ass players like Saquon it feels like new Manhattan.
I’m not really focusing on the game because this will be my last write up. So I’m just spilling it all out. Why not right? This shit is taking forever! Fuck it, let’s end it.
I really ran out of steam on the offense part because I've had a shit day. So let's just rapid fire some of this in hopes that it will make up for it all.
Those sucked...I've lost it!
