    New Refs, New Game

    With all the hub bub about the Giants poor O line, bad secondary play and no halftime adjustments by the coaching staff, what was the one item that everyone watched this past week end and no one has mentioned yet? Its the type of game the refs are allowing the players to play! They're letting these guys play ball and I'm loving it!! No you might be the kind who says that Cruz was interfered with in the end zone last week and maybe he was however, the refs are calling the games the same for everyone and I hope that TC and Co. have taken notice of this and they tell the guys to play accordingly next Sunday. Dallas out muscled us, they manhandeled us. Hey, fool me, once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. This week these guys better come out punching, kicking and clawing on both sides of the ball. If we don't every other team in the league will be. Go Giants!!

    If anyone knew they were just going to flat out stop calling penalties across the board, we would have built our team from a bunch of convicts and philly fans (oh wait same thing). Aside from the D-line we are built more for finesse.

    I think the replacements refs will be here to stay unless some major screwups happen. They already locked up refereeing Week 2 games. The original refs might as well stick to their primary jobs or hobbies or whatever they do with the way things are going.

    With exception of the SF GB game, where the ref crew was pretty strict, I'd lean towards agreeing with you. I think these refs are just as good as the "real refs" to be honest. There is no lack of intelligence per se, It's just a simple learning curve, and given enough time, these refs will be just as timely and efficient with the calls as the "real" referees.

    The refs' suck butt. Once again with a strict T.C. and his "i dont get called for bs penalty" attitude, we have already suffered with mugging on our recievers and our D rushers. Our team plays straight forward and is now suffering from the lack of BS calls. I am throwing my hands up and saying the NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS will never get a FAIR shake in this game. All the rules and gestures are down the drain as far as I see it.

    Whomever refs these games better have a secondary ride home if they dont call a fair game!!!

    I can't believe anyone thought that Replacement Refs would be better, or "not-worse". I cautioned against this. These refs suck, they're stupid, they're slow, and they're impressionable. Ridiculous.

    I mean if the giants didn't get the picture with all the holding and take downs that Dallas OLine did to us and all the bumping after 5 yards and holding onto WRs then they are in trouble. By the 3rd quarter it was evident that they were not calling anything but Illeagle Procedure and delay of game penalities. So we should have followed suit and done the same thing to them
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a 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!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    I am so happy you said that because I agree.

    These refs have no egos and it's letting these guys be more raw, I love it

    And yes they are not anywhere near the old refs knowledge wise, but let be real there's going to be a learning curve. Most of us called for all those old refs to get the hook, I want to see how these guys do once they get some experience under their belt. Unfortunately, there's only one way to get NFL ref experience
