    So you're saying that about one out of every 4 was directed at Nicks.
    Let me see...

    27/4 = ~7

    Yes, precisely.

    Are you trying to defend Nicks from some phantom attack against him?
    No...I'm talking about how reckless Eli is with the football.

    I mean TC benches Wilson for 1 fumble and he has nothing but glowing things to say about our turnover machine of a QB.

    I see ur point but comparing an unproven second year running back to a two time Super Bowl MVP qb is a stretch. Not to mention how different it would be benching a qb to a running back. Totally different ball park IMO

    I know but 83 picks in 4 years is of great concern.

    Can't argue with that point lol... But the other options are not adequate. I'm confident in Eli's ability to rebound

    Mh from what I've read this OC runs a lot more stricter routes as opposed to the option routes we ran with KG, hopefully that will cut down some of the ints

    He'll be better this season. But i still see the picks continuing. Just not at the alarming rate we saw last year.
    I look for something like 23 to 25 TD's with 15 to 18 picks.

    He still panics in the pocket amid a pass rush. The key to Eli is protection. Give him time and he can deliver the football.
    I am concerned about all the short routes that the new system might feature. Not Eli's strength. He's much more of a downfield passer.

    A reconstruction of the oline and a solid running back situation can help that too, the Eli I want to see is the one from 2008, as opposed to the 2011 one

    I'm concerned about the O line. Schwartz was a great pickup but we still have an aging, beat up vet at RG, an often injured new center, and Beatty/Brown at LT.

    Lots of concerns.
