Still never bet against Eli

You can sense Tom is worried in his tone and demeanor.  After going 0-6 to start last season and having a horrible pre-season, the team opens on the road in Detroit which is never an easy place to play.   Our OL against their DL spells trouble.  If JPP doesn't step up, Megatron will shred our D.  Reggie Bush could even run wild.  The potential exists for a blow out on national TV and Tommie Boy knows it.  Then come home to face a Cardinals team that is no pushover and then a Houston team with a killer DL.  Then on the road in DC.  There is an air of panic surrounding this team I have not seen in years.  They are much more likely to be 0-4 or 1-3 than 4-0 or 3-1.  I think you'd be thrilled with 2-2.  Tom sees the writing on the wall too.  Let's hope Detroit plays undisciplined and the turnover battle goes in our favor.  Maybe we can generate a little mo.  Very very worried Giants will be as exciting as the Mets and Yankees this year.

Great Entry ... Great Quote very informative !!?? I mean really, the starting QB is focused 3 days before the opening Mon Night game of the season Awesome... What starting let alone backup QB isn't focused the first week leading up to the start of the regular season !? Idk bout anyone else but I am much more assured nd relaxed knowing Eli is really focused ...yea the questions at OL TE DL and wherever else have all been answered , riveting stuff

Coughlin seems to be spending a lot of time managing spin on questions about the team. 


Rare to see Tom on the defensive

@Floyd Toucanet .... I agree with he first part, but that ain't going to happen. And Eli getting benched is a pipe dream too. It's going to take an injury to get him off the field.
