Next week's game will be a technical masterpiece with amazing coaching and end up in a tie.

Just because.

I mean, throwing a pick from your own 20 on the 2nd play of the game against an elite team who never loses at home is a recipe for disaster. Then he compounds it by doing it again.
He did do that. But the defense sure didn't put up a fight after the Giants missed their field goal, or when they took the field to start the 3rd.

Can Weatherford play other positions besides punter? He's so good and so consistent I can't help but wonder what else he can do

I just don't understand this ****ing team. At one point in the 2nd quarter 4 out of 5 plays were shotgun draws. The beginning of the game Wilson is working running the ball to the outside. Then they take him out, for no reason, to give Lumpkin reps. And it works, Lumpkin starts torching the Falcons up the middle. Then they take him out for no reason, go back to Wilson, but instead decide to try and bust him up the middle every play.

I knew the secondary would be atrocious today, so no ****ing surprise there. Hosely is a joke right now. I can't believe I actually miss Amukamara.

The most infuriating team in the NFL. Every week it's a new ****ing story. At least now their backs are against the wall, again, so maybe they'll finally start showing up and consistently. I wouldn't put my money on that though.

Please. Eli threw two horrendous picks leading to 10 points. I guess you dont think momentum means anything.

I would say that is the better option. Glad you aren't pushing yourself into law school. And in another year, the legal market will be better than it is right now. You should study for the June exam and take it anyway just to see what you get.

It doesn't when the defense has been awful all season anyway. This game wouldn't be close even if Eli was playing well.

Some games the offense bails them out. Sometimes they don't. The one constant is how bad the defense is.

Osi's done. Tuck is done. C-Web is done. Rolle is awful in coverage. Our defense is not good.

Eli's been awful this game, no doubt...but the D has been awful all season.

Like I said, not absolving him, he deserves blame. I'm more upset with the O-Line, with the D-Line, with the Dbacks, and with the play calling though.

I mean, if I'm not employed by around the time I should start studying (I'm saying Feb) it wouldn't hurt not to.

I am as well but the O-line has an excuse because they're banged up, as well as the secondary.

Today was a game where the oiffense, led by Eli, and the pass rush had to show up...neither did.

My beef with Eli is that he never gave the defense a chance to make an impact. They took the field 1st and 10 from what, their own 15?

Tom Quinn jumping up and screaming ******** just then was the highlight of the game.

Yeah, but they didn't stop them from putting up another 7, the same thing happened when they started the 3rd quarter.
