I don't know what it is. A lot of the posters on here just seem very subdued for whatever reason. I know that was a tough loss to the eagles last Sunday and they've beaten us 8/9 and were 0-2 in NFCE.


But come on, we are only 4 games into the season.....

We just need to get to 7-7 and we will have the league right where we want em!!! Lol

Come on guys!! Lighten up!!

I think people are just in shock from the really bad coaching decisions made at the end of that Eagles game, and the total abandonment of the Andre Brown running game. It just wasn't a game we should have lost, and the coaches found a way to do it. The defense playing as flat as they did was also disheartening; but they always seem to find a way to play bad against the Eagles, particularily in the second half of the game.

A good solid game against Cleveland will help bring things back to life. It's also been a little weird for me having games on Wednesday night, Thursday night, and Sunday night, and only one 1:00 game on Sunday. Just doesn't feel like the season's really started.

the way I see it boys,,and girls, is that there isn't much to say. we have all seen this movie before. all we can do is man up and root for our beloved Gmen.

Does the coaching staff think its a coincedence that we are 2-0 with Brown in Backfield and 0-2 with Bradshaw?

I think the coaching staff is thinking too much and maybe just do what feels right for once, roll the dice and let's see how it shakes out.

Its not just you, I have noticed it as well. It may have partially to do with the fact we are playing the Browns. Possibly the most boring team in football.

For the most part everyone is burned out from last weekend. The speed should definitely pick up just before the game today. As said many times, winning cures everything and if the Giants win the pace should pick up for at least the next week.

The Eagles loss was a huge let down after a dominating performace at Carolina. We are now 0-2 in our division and everyone knows we have the toughest schedule this year. You have to find a way to win close games! The Eagles could easily be 1-3 this year with all the turnovers but they managed to win. I sense that we have an 8-8 team this year based on how we are playing now( .500 ball) and the rest of our grueling schedule . The NFC East will not have 3 teams going to the playoffs and the Cowboys and Eagles are not going to lay down like they did last year. As crazy as this sounds the Browns game is a must win for us.

If things go bad this weekend I don't think we've even reached the peak.

Since Eli_HOF started it:

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

9-7 will not win the division this year.That Eagle team is solid and will win 11 games. The AFC is getting run over by the NFC which means inflated NFC records. Giants need to finish minimum 8-4 and I think more like 9-3. I dont see how thats possible with the injuries and the Dline not showing up

care to wager on the philly 11 games statement?
I have the eagles winning 9x.
10 wins would be a push. 11 wins-u win obviously, 9-I win...they've been outscored by like 26 pts thru 4 weeks. those 1 and 2 pt wins are gonna dry up. philly has an absolutely BRUTAL next 5 games, I could see them going winless these next 5 games

Its more fun to talk about the positives. It gets old being down and negitive. Poor play and constant injuries just isn't fun to talk about. I'm hoping we can step up and dominate this game. The team and the fans really need the shot in the arm.

With no sarcasm intended whatsoever, a lot(not ALL) of you guys set yourselves up for letdowns like last weekend. You have the bar set WAY too high, and you expect them to dominate, win every game, and repeat. It's just not realistic, especially when you consider that we have 2nd and even 3rd string guys now starting in some areas. I believe they'll pick it back up and get on a roll, but expecting too much is a recipe for disaster.

Anyone who has followed this team for more than 5 minutes knows that there is no such thing as an easy win. The beatdown of the Panthers was a rare exception that happens once every 4-5 years. This team simply does not blow other teams out, and they dont always win games they should win. Thats all the proof you should need to not get your hopes up too high. Not being negative, just realistic.

Last week was a big disappointment, yes, but it's over. Let it go and move on

Like right now, on TAGF there is one thread new

Let's face it, most of the posters aren't posting as well since the new boards came online. Many of the best posts appeared to be jabs at whether there would ever be a new board, which masked the inability of those posters to produce a quality statement.

And how obvious is it that the moderators are not as enthusiastic as in the past? They're not getting to the board as quickly. I think they may be overrated--may need to get back in the weight room to rebuild the fingers.

We need to bring in some new posters from another team's fan base, perhaps some Bengal fans to tell us: "You guys are great, but we're great too."

And have you noticed how the new boards just don't seem to give the ability to type letters as easily on the keyboard? Maybe if we could get back to the quoting of a quote of a quote threads that take up the whole page, we'd get back to the glory days of the longer thread that appeared to have more substance?

I'm not sure what's wrong here, but it seems like it can be traced further back when Flozell Adams tripped up a poster's train of thought a few years ago. It just doesn't seem like the boards have been the same since.

Seriously, though, what's the deal with four pages of threads and done. Half the worthwhile ones will never stay around long enough to gain traction and interest.
