I'm like an expectant father, is it going to be a boy or a girl? We were treated two 1/4 of superb football just a few days ago. Was it illusionary? Or the start of a trend that's going to carry us into the playoffs? How very fortunate that a win tonight, in spite of everything that's going on, can have us tied for the lead. Consider that Washington and Dallas look to be in Decline from ordinary and we would have beaten Philadelphia, we could suddenly be in very good shape. I am going to be watching saquon with extreme interest. I think the off track is going to take away his incredible moves, I think he'll adjust and we'll see a different type Runner out there tonight, anyway, I think they're in is going to lie the story of the game.

Winnable game for the Gmen. Not liking that both Engram and Ellison are out at TE. That's a problem. The weather should be an equalizer.
I do like that OV returns today. We absolutely can use him.
Really not sure what to expect in this one. My fear is the Giants won't be able to block up the Eagles D Line. While the O Line was commendable last week, the Panthers didn't dial up a ton of blitzes....so we might have gotten off a little easily. I don't think Schwartz will let the Giants O Line off the hook. No Ellison doesn't help. But.....this is why we play the games! Giants win.......they are in much better shape than a week ago.
I really like Ellison, he's going to be missed. I don't see how we handle their front seven. But they are without their starting running back and Schrolles ,(sp?) is hurt too. Special teams and turnovers are going to matter tonight. We are like the heavyweight with a big punch. We can get beat up but sooner or later Trust that OBj or saquon are going to hit a homerun.
freide: As buts go I would put flowers in the Ron Dayne's class.

uther99: The Oline is just too bad to compete. If you max protect, how many WRs go out, 2? That's 2 WRs against 7 defenders, good luck.

homerj45: Thanks everyone for well wishes, results were no definite signs of cancer at this point and just need to monitor things , whew, a 80 minute MRI was definitely my fear factor moment at 6 f t5 240 lbs that was a snug fit.

GordonG: Homer, I hope you get good news this week. Like Troy, I also beat cancer. I was fortunate that it was caught very early. So early that it could have easily been diagnosed as benign.
