If five games into the season they are -5 Eli will be looking over his shoulder; Nassib is looking real good .....he seems to take McAdoo's system correctly. Eli does not....sorry to say but Eli's days may be numbered.

Wow, Eli has had basically awful stats every preseason game, hope he is saving his best play for the season.

5-0 in the preseason should make you feel somewhat confident going into the season....... However, I am Hoping they win more regular season games then they did this preseason. (Certainly not a given especially based on how the oline holds up)

Time to cut Hosley and Robinson. Quarles looks like a keeper, but some tough decisions on the dline. Sad to see manningham go out with a whimper. Hoping hynoski is ok, but we are covered here with Connors if he's not.

How does going 5-0 in preseason give you confidence. I care nothing about score, you want to see PRODUCTION.

I'm not counting us out but def a little worried from what I have seen
