    another historically bad defense.

    This game looks identical to a lot of last year which has me worried. Its only preseason, but once again the defense held out alright but the offense struggled to score early.. The defense wears out and the game will eventually turn into a shoot out late. Our offense needs to help this defense out more and score earlier so they can run out the clock later.

    The D has been fine.

    they were fine most of last year as well, until they wore out late in a lot of games where they had to wait for the offense to start playing into the 4th quarter.

    If they'd finally get rid of Andre Williams, or if Eli Manning was worth anything, we wouldn't be losing.

    your assessment is way off. The defense looked very good for the most part. Andre Williams, Larry donell and the Oline are the real issues today. The D looks nothing like last year. Linebackers are making plays, some of which were way downfield (Robinson and casillas on pass plays), Collins looks much improved in his second season, and the defensive line didn't allow much of anything in the run game. Drc nearly got a sack and Vernon got a sack, and also got off a block or two against the run for some tackles.

    Paul Perkins will challenge AW he will run, block and catch better just needs the reps to show what he can do

    Yeah Eli was not good, but this is similar to a lot of games last year the offense plays like garbage which leads to the defense looking worse than they played
