    Are the white jerseys the key to Giant success ?

    Does anyone else think the white jerseys might help Eli locate receivers in the passing game? Thus we play better on the road?

    It didn't seem to help them last week.

    It's all in the mind. If they focus, they can and will make the plays they're supposed to make (whether its a 5 yard curl or a deep post). If they don't focus, you end up dropping surefire touchdowns.

    I really think they play better on the road for some reason. It seems our wideoutsand Eli play better away.less drops & more yards away from home

    As someone who watched Eli play throughout his college career (since I went to his same school), I can tell you that he has always played well on the road. Basically, he plays the same whether home or away. In other words, I don't think he actually plays better on the road than at home, but he basically plays the same...which is highly unusual, in my opinion. I don't think the crowd gets to him at all. Also, he has always been good in the last two minutes of halves and in the fourth quarter. He mainly struggles a little to get started in the beginning of games, and he also seems to play very conservative when ahead...which at times can be a slight negative. Other than that, he was a magical quarterback during all the years I watched him.

    Perhaps hostile environments make Eli perform better, thus his road game success over the years. The real mystery is why home games are more of a liability than an advantage.
