    Game preview: Bears @ GIANTS

    LINK

    Excerpt: "Third pre-season game is the closest you’re going to get to regular-season speed. The starters will play into the third quarter before taking a seat. Winning the game is a minor objective. Fine-tuning your schemes is a priority but not as high as getting off the field unscathed. By this point most, of the grading has been done. It’s all about getting up to game speed now." Read more...

    We just need to go through the motions try and get a few sacks, a few Tds and call it a night
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Going through the motions while somebody else is going 100 percent in order to win a job will get you killed. Guys are still battling for jobs and there are still jobs up for grab. While most of the evaluating is done - be sure there are still some key spots somewhat up for grabs.

    Gotta chip on peppers on passing downs - not to many tackles can handle that one on one.

    Lets also say the gmen line has to give wilson some help if he is to perform. Kid is gonna be filthy once he gets the playbook and blitz pickups down. Truth is i think the giants are more interested in seeing how he protects eli then his running ability (while i know this will be questioned i think there is already a buzz about the ability and the fact that they know he will be elecrtic when given the ball but will he be a liability without it)
