didn't see him thrown at? are you watching? that was him on at least one third down conversion and on the TD.

No I was back and forth I only saw the completion against webster and rolle.. Missed that touchdown pass, but I saw the replay just now, so yeah, I see what your saying.

It was around 2-3 times. Definitely not more.

Yeah, he really needs to fix himself up right there.

I'm not giving up on him yet. Plenty of pre-season to go. Took Web quite a while until he had things nailed down.

Prince always looks lost to me Hate to agree, but yeah. The strip happened because of a really crappy attempt at the tackle.

No way....go back and look....he was going after th ball the whole time. The runnner was holding away from his body so he went after it. Good play bu Prince, but he has a bad habit of watching the QB and losing track of his guy.

wrong.....going for the ball all the way....
but he was getting smoked playing CB

He did get smoked on a couple pass plays though. I'll give ya that. I think he'll do fine this season, or at least I hope. We need someone other than webster that can make plays consistently.

i think that has to do with him and the timing he has with the DL expecting them to get to the qb...i wasnt overly concerned about that

Anyone watching on NFL Preseason Live may well have missed up to 10 minutes of play

Eh, I've seen him get it done last year when it counts. It's been a while since they played a game. I think he will be fine.

He had a rough game overall. The strip was a heads up play, but getting beat the same way twice (losing track of his man and the ball) is a little concerning b/c he didn't recognize that problem quickly enough. But that's what pre-season is for, and hopefully he keeps improving.

Coverage was terrible during this game in general, and especially the 2nd stringers which is concerning b/c one of those guys is likely going to be the nickle CB which is like a starter.

Prince played outstanding last post season so one pre season game where he's clearly still learning and getting up to speed is not going to sway me...

By no means should this game make anyone lose faith in Prince, the idea to make these mistakes now so that they're fixed for this game.

Constant static it looked like they filmed the game with their butt. the camera man couldnt find the ball a bunch of times. 1 Completion from Carr they didnt follow or switch to the guy who caught the ball. Terrible job

He was the steal of that draft, he has to be good!

He allowed 2 catches for 32 yards and forced a fumble, sheesh

Neither catch he allowed was particularly bad coverage either, he just got caught inside on both.

Michael Coe on the other hand got beat constantly all over the field.

I never get too excited or pissed in preseason play. The Giants will be a very good and competetive team for sure.
Not worried....

Cameramen on strike too?

yeah carr completed one to bennett and they just zoomed in on carr the whole play.

another thing that bothered me was how they didnt show any replays of the completions eli had. i wanted to see the barden and bennett receptions a few more times thru replay. terrible telecast. paul dottino, bless his soul, is HORRIBLE at commentating

It took Webster 2 seasons before he "got it." Prince will come around, he is too talented not to. Have some patience, because Prince will be a starting CB for us for a long time

What do we do in the meantime? Watch him get burned and like it?

I like that he kept his head in the game and forced that fumble, but his "coverage" was horrendous. Holsey is already better than Prince.

Extreme? On one play, his man2man opponent was open by 10 yards. I was cringing. This was our #1 pick?

"He just needs more reps" was his only defense.

I think that is quite the exaggeration. Prince played well in the playoffs last year. Hosley played one preseason game and he's better now? Calm down

But to answer your question, yes we do sit around and let Prince get burned and make mistakes. That is what the preseason is for.

Well if you are going to use Webster as a comparison, he sat on the bench until he "got it".

Thankyou!! JJC7301,

Either we are inundated with band wagon fans that want to ride the coat tails of champions, or the really vocal fans know nothing of what they see on TV where football is concerned. The worst fans are the ones who regurgitate the bull idiot talking heads get paid to say. You made my day JJC7301. You are spot on with Webbie, he took at least 3 seasons and still struggled at times after getting valuable mentorship from Sam Madison and RW McQuarters.

Some of you are the most impatient fans i've ever seen. It's the 1st preseason game of the year and some are ready to walk off the cliff. Look at the all the best CBs that have played in this league, they average 3yrs before they "got it". Concerned, NO, worried, NO but if you are i'll glady nudge you off the cliff. Sheesh!

Speaking of over reacting........haven't seen one post where anyone is ready to jump yet. (I admit it's somewhat surprising for this board)..........Prince didn't play well and we are simply discussing it. It isn't anything more than that.

He did get beat a bunch, but I wouldn't get to bogged down by it. The first preseason game.
