    I know, I know stop watching espn...

    ...it's unreal how much they talk about the ****ing browns and their stupid QB battle. No one ****ing cares. I knew they'd talk about them constantly, but not literally every day. I don't even read stuff about the Bucs team every day, I certainly don't need to hear about one ****** teams dbag QB daily.

    I'm done now. You can go back to the colts.

    At least the Manziel stuff has taken away a lot of attention from RG3. And now you rarely hear Tebow.

    I do not know why people continue to suffer through ESPN. Only time I watch ESPN is when a live sport is on. I could not tell you the last time I watched a show like PTI or NFL Live. Their shows are just crap and they have their people play roles and they cover only the drama stuff like Manziel and not the actual sport anymore.

    The best thing ESPN did was allow Simmons to do the 30for30 and Grantland. The rest of ESPN is just terrible.

    I've always thought that ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown is pretty good. I always have it on from 10-12 before switching over to whatever channel is showing the Colts games. The guys on there do a good job of talking about the stuff that actually matters and are much more serious than the other ESPN talking heads.

    I hate sportscenter too, but there isn't really any thing comparable and nothing is on in the morning.

    GB just had a great opening drive that led to a TD. Rodgers went 6/6 with quick throws, no huddle plus the awesomeness of Eddie Lacy. St Louis' DL didn't find time to come close to Rodgers or stuff Lacy's runs.

    No huddle is the way to go, Pep.

    Why would you hear about Tebow? He's not even in the league anymore

    I hope Pep lets Luck just go no huddle, we are such a much better team when we do

    I think he's got it and I expect him to act accordingly. When you have the personnel to do so, then why not? It's a shame not to.

    Offense might still be terrible at running the ball, but who cares when you've got a loaded receiving corp and Luck?

    Pep continues to run obvious running plays that puts the line and RBs into bad situations
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    It is going to be a long season if the refs keep calling the illegal contact/holding penalty like they are. It would not be so bad if it did not wipe out the result of the play. Nothing like losing a big play because of illegal contact.

    Nicks looks really good but does bad things... Ran backward at least twice, at one point had the ball in one hand with his arm extended and then the taunting penalty.

    One of these games, Richardson will average more than 3 yards/carry.

    Our running game just sucks. It's not just TRich. Every RB we throw back there gets stuffed. They still have not fixed our line or our playcalling. Buncha delayed draws... cramming our RBs into a stuffed box.... it's like this offense has no clue how to execute a run. We force our backs to spin gold from straw.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Luck looked good especially considering no T.Y. or Reggie. Running game sucked. Waaaayyy too many penalties, made the game take 3hrs and 40min. I can't believe how awful Eli looked, he played a little better the last time he was here a couple February's ago. I loved how Pat said after the game it was inexcusable for him to miss that kick. It only would have tied the NFL record and we're not a mile high like Denver.

    I'm glad this team went injury free for this game(at least appeared that way)

    I don't know if our first unit is really that good or the Giants aren't.

    I'm wondering the same thing. If Eli has another bad year, do they really want to give him a long term deal after the 2015 season? Heck, he's due 17 mil next year and if he throws 20+ picks and his comp % continues to drop, I think you have to move on. Those 2 SB's are great, but NY isn't really the place to be handing lifetime achievement awards out.

    I could be exaggerating, and it's very possible Eli could have a bounce back year, but what if he doesn't?

    Why would he get a long term deal after the 2015 season? He'll be 35 by then anyways most QB's drop off at that point health wise.

    His brother is an outlier in that regard.

    I think the Giants have bigger issues beyond Eli's inconsistent play but its a preseason game I'd be more concerned if he did this during the regular season I wouldn't be surprised if he wins another SB by the time he retires anyways.

    T-Rich has looked great in the preseason thus far!

    The o-line and Dwayne Allen in particular have been horrible thus far. I have broken down all of Trents runs and his teammates are failing him. His decisive running and pass protection have been exceptional. The only time he dances has been when someone comes free on him in the backfield. (Which happens too frequently)

    He is literally making chicken salad out of chicken ****
