    knowing all this Gilbride should adjust the offense to run more 3 step drop quick hits because that's something our offense even with its deficiencies could pull off right now, I don't think Eli would have a problem running that either, it's not his forte but he's more then capable of accomplishing it.
    It is JR fault in that respect. He didn't give the O line near enough attention in the off season.
    Having said that we did revise our scheme with some short patterns. One turned into a Bears TD.
    Eli sucks at those quick pass plays. Look at his career,....90% at least of his picks are shorter patterns. he lacks touch on the shorter stuff and also tends to be high on them,....leading to tipped balls.

    We have what we have...A QB with specific abilities and a OC who has molded his scheme to fit those abilities. Unfortunately...our QB is not that adaptable. He does what he does well and he does what he does poorly.
    Get well soon 80.

    After buying Tuck and JPP jerseys 2 years in a row, I would never buy an active player jersey...probably wouldn't spend money on jerseys period anymore.

    I have a Bavaro jersey. But I still wear my ex-Giant jerseys. Even my Shockey jersey I still wear

    I only buy knockoffs....they look legit though. But idk...maybe i should just keep what i have and call it quits. I have a tuck jersey also....I actually have never worn it lol
    I think im going to stick with my Eli, Strahan, and Nicks(till next year)....i also have Osi, Jacobs, and KP, from past years.

    I only buy knockoffs too, for like $40. I guess they are fine, but spending money on them sucks to me.

    I'd prefer a few giants shirts that say giants on them.

    well that's fine, I mean I don't agree, I think Eli can modify his game to a different scheme but if you don't think that I can't blame you he hasn't shown much ability with the short passing game in the pass.

    my only point is we don't have another option...we simply can't run the 7 step drop scheme with what we have, we have to do something.

    I've decided that wearing a jersey with someone else's name on it is lame.
    I would only consider a Giants #11 with "Morehead" on the back.
