I like BJ Goodson as a leader and a decent LB... the bit 'however' is that he's a lot like Michael Barrow. All potential, but just can't stay healthy enough to be a contributor. The Giants have some real holes to fill... one big hole is to get a quality NFL caliber linebacker (preferably an MLB).
One real positive about Geno Smith is his ability to stretch plays. He can run a lot farther then Eli before he has to throw the ball away... that's will help to eat the clock and make the next 5 games go more quickly.
We all know the offense stinks and stunk... the biggest surprise is how bad the defense has played this year. Last year was light years away from this year. This defense is as bad as the 2015 team.
It's not as bad as the 2015 defense. That's not fair. That defense was BAD.
This year, they def have not put out the same effort. Eli Apple got abused early in the season. D Thompson was out of position regularly. But the offensive lack of production has been a problem in the MacAdoo HC era. There have been more injuries to manage compared to last year. Esp in the LB corps (shocker).
I'd take my chances with most of this defense back for next season. What's gone on with the rest of the team has been comical. I have no idea what direction the future HC leadership takes.
Defense holds twice....could we be fighting back? Oh god, I have no freedom of will. !! The brain is gone controlled by years of rooting, countries have self determination, Giants fans have habits and hopes.
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.
