It's time someone got this thread started with the preseason beginning tomorrow. The G-Men face a lot of question marks this year with some important off-season losses including Smith, Boss, and Cofield. The fact that Smith went to the Eagles and Cofield to the Redskins makes those losses a little harder to swallow. Then there's the whole Osi situation. Not to mention 1st round draft pick Prince Amukamara broke his foot in practice last week. But, there still are some things that are looking up for the Giants, one of which is Amukamara who should be back by the bye week. IMO, they had a very good draft class, with players like Marvin Austin (who I think is going to be a beast at DT) and WR/return-man Jerrell Jernigan joining the squad. Also, I have a strange hunch (strange because I am usually extremely pessimistic with the Giants), that Eli is going to have a big bounce back year from last year.

And with Philthy being the "Heat of football" and that other team that plays in Giants/Maadowlands Stadium guarenteeing a Superbowl, this should make for a fun season (or an extremely frustrating one).

GO G-MEN!

Go Giants! I'm not die hard as a lot of you other guys on here when it comes to football so I'm not stressing out too much over what has been going on entering this year. I'm just going to enjoy this team battling every week and hope for the best!

I never want to underrate the preparation of a Tom Coughlin coached team. But I think too many pieces are missing from the puzzle on the O-side of the equation: the OL, TE, WR all need help. I think Manning will still be a turnover machine while trying to get used to his new receivers.

My analysis of last night's game:

Jason Pierre-Paul is a beast. The rest of the team: not so much. Especially the special teams. Still, no one knows how to tackle, and no one knows how to block on returns. Not to mention Lawrence Tynes almost died last night. The only glimmer of hope: There's a chance Matt Dodge won't be punting for this team come week 1. The offense was very lackluster, and the defensive secondary got just straight-up beaten too many times for my liking.

Let's hope they sort out some of the issues for the next game.

Amazing catch by Hixon. The slow motion replay on HD and his concentration were unreal.

First regular season game last night. What a good atmosphere. Was pretty disappointed with Eli though, he sucked.

EVERY PLAYER ON THIS TEAM IS INJURED. Seriously, Thomas, Amukamara, Witherspoon, Austin, Sintim, Goff, Beckum, Umenyiora, Tuck, Nicks (although the last two played), and now Hixon and Manningham. It's getting ridiculous. I want to be mad at them for playing terrible, but you almost can't blame them for what they've had to go through.

After seeing how we could barely handle Rex Grossman, I thought we were gonna get abused by Vick.. What a great game though for us, all around

Eli played out of his mind, i dont know anyone who expected he'd play that well

Someone needs to tell Cruz you can't "give yourself up" before the ball gets there! Giants should have stolen that game.
