as a 40 year Giant fan, I cannot remember EVER having this much of a talent pool going into the season

Everyone says the Eagles have the most talent in the NFC East

Its not even close............we are farrrrrrrrrrr more talented than the Eagles

Their wee little QB cannot make it through a series without sustaining injury

They should just ditch Vick and hand Foles the keys.

I agree the Giants have a wave of talent but wouldn't it be even nicer if they could stay healthy...

The depth would look a lot better if guys like T2, Prince, Hosley, Austin, Canty, Boley, Beatty were actually participating.

I don't know how those 2 words can be in the same sentence!! I have numerous Cowboy fan friends and no Eagles fan freinds. Every Eagle fan I know is a bitter, angry ****** nozzle.

I didn't think it was possible Eagles fans to have friends....doesn't their fan base hate each other as well?

This, when healthy, we can compete with or be the best in the league, but we need to be healthy when playoffs roll around. That being said, we have a great team, cant wait for the season to start.

We started off weak last year......but I do expect a win tomorrow.
The key is our pass rush.....if they somehow figure it out we will have a tough game on our hands

I've lowered my estimation of this team 50% based upon that debacle last week

all teams have talent...
its heart, desire,preparation, and proper execution on the players and coaching staff that makes success.....

I've been a fan for 30+ years and I am not sure if I agree...There's lots of talent at DL QB and WR. Not seeing the talent at CB, LB, OL and RB and LB are average to slightly above average.

Not sure if is see the balance that the 80's teams had..Only real weakness of those teams was maybe WR...

I've lowered my estimation of this team 50% based upon that debacle last weekThe Talent is still there. However we dont have the Talent in one of the most IMPORTANT Positions on the field. Eagles have us on this one and it could make the difference overall. Our OLINE is just Terrible. There were times when Eli took the snap and the Defender was in his back pocket or right in his face has he recieved the ball out of the shotgun. cant do much but throw it away or take a sack in that situation. thats where DJ Ware came in handy giving eli and extra few seconds. it was the intangibles that DJ was good at. Doesnt matter how much talent we have on offense. AB, Wilson, Scott, Bennett, Pascoe, Robinson, Nicks, Cruz, Hixon, Barden, JJ, RR, Hynoski all are USELESS unless this Line can RUN block and PASS protect.

Also to blame were the Refs how didnt call anything after 5yards and let their secondary and LBs maul our guys all day. However that goes both ways, if they were not calling anything why not slow up Dez and Olgetree..

also in the defense of our Defense LOL... Our guys on the DLine were not only getting held, they were getting tackled. But again, if they are not going to call it then you should be doing the same thing. If our OLINE guys paid attention during the game they would have seen that with all the NO CALLS on JPP, Tuck OSi and the rest that they could go out there and try the same tactics. Do it until they start flagging you for it. Common Sense

I'm a fan of 50+ years and with todays hard cap and Free Agency, it gets harder and harder to stay on top for any length of time. Only the teams with a very skilled organization manage to stay at or near the top. You win the SB and key players go to the highest bidder or the cap gets you.

We HAD the talent........the talent only wanted to play a few high profile games and folded like a cheap suit when the year started to draw to a close

you have to blame that on Tommy Coughlin.......he should have managed the talent better

I'm not so sure we have the most talent in the division. At least not CLEARLY.

We have the best QB maybe. I think so but an argument can be made for any of the QBs in our division. We have the best wide receivers, maybe. I think so but the Eagles have a solid core in Jackson and Maclin also as well as the Cowboys. The defensive lines are also comparable, especially since we've lost Osi. O-line of ours is still a work in progress. And we clearly don't have the best linebackers, while if healthy, the secondary is still a debate too.

I'm not seeing a clear separation here at all.

There is no jinx and there's not going to be one with Reese at the helm. And that bro is priceless !

I think that the '80s Giants teams were more talented. This era may have the more talented O, but the '80s D was much more talented and DOMINANT. And so was the o-line of the '80s.

Today's D looks shot and in serious need of a makeover. Same with the o-line.

The Giants are swarming with talent, I couldnt agree more. Reese has done a phenominal job up to this point. This is a good football team. With a few tweaks and hopefully some changes in schemes, I think this defense can dramatically improve from last year.
