Dallas came out with a good defensive scheme and shut down Cruz. Last year when that happened Nicks was able to dominate, as he did in the playoffs. Eli has to find Nicks more often.

Eli barely gets any blame. Even last week people were still making excuses. He has had a very rough season save two or so games.

Okay. And how about all those other drops?

Even if Eli threw the ball perfectly to Hixon, that would have not guaranteed us a 1st down because, again, he was behind the marker, not ahead.

In this game, Eli made some throws that could have been easily caught: receivers made contact with both hands, had a hold of it but let it go, or let a nice throw go past them.

In that Washington game, quite a few noticeable throws Eli made that were overthrown, two of them resulting in picks, with one of them right after Washington fumbled the ball.

Eli got kudos last week because he got us the go-ahead score. I don't think anyone has said that Eli was perfect and didn't make mistakes in that game; quite the opposite.

Did I say that the WRs played well? I must have missed where I wrote that.

I will reaffirm my previous sentiments (of the past 3 years) that Bradshaw is not a #1 back any more.

Then I don't know how you can blame Eli. I'd do a complete 180 if Eli was chucking the ball like a moron but that wasn't the case today.

I'm more angry over the fact that we kept giving the ball to Bradshaw on 1st down plays, that we kept giving the ball to Bradshaw over Brown and Wilson.

The coaches are being stubborn.

Bradshaw doesn't matchup well against certain teams. Yet he continues to get the bulk of the carries.
Case in point. In the Eagle game, it was obvious Bradshaw style didn't jive with the Eagles front. That was a game were Brown who's a down field runner, should have gotten most of the carries.

I also don't understand why Wilson still isn't getting carries. He hasn't put the ball on the ground since week 1.
If he was so bad at blitz pick up, then why was he CLEARLY the number 2 back to start the season?

BECAUSE THEY BOTH DESERVE BLAME!

My God! Why is it this difficult?

I agree with the Bradshaw comment though.

To say Eli has had a rough season is nuts, Jon. Come on.

He's had maybe two games that have made me question him directly, and we won one of those games because he came through anyway.

Rough season? No way.

the good things to take from that game is that weathford and tynes and the special teams as a whole were very good. they actually have been pretty good so far this year. plus they did a real good job at stopping felix jones and the run game. the dline did get some good pressure for most of the game.

Nicks still isn't right. I don't care what anyone says. He's still not healthy.

I agree, but I don't think he looked too bad this game. I wish Eli tried to hit him more.

Hopefully next game he's closer to 100%.

The key is that the youth is showing (Wootton , Melton , Conte , Wright)

In recent years the D has had to depend on Urlacher/Peppers/Briggs , etc.

Hi,

I am currently in England and obviously my NFL game pass doesn't work over here so I have to ask if anyone know where I can find a stream that works on Android phones (HTC one x).

Thanks.

Defense continues to bleed yards on the ground and to the short pass.

The Giants are a brutal home team. It's mind-boggling.
