    Eli Manning and the Giants starting offense

    For te 3rd time this preseason, Eli Manning failed to complete better than 50% of his passes. And for the 2nd time in 3 weeks his first team offense failed to score a TD.

    I guess the media will go crazy about this, like they do about the Jets offensive struggles? Nah

    And tonight in four series it was the Giants starting O versus the Pats 2nd string D and they didn't move the ball or score a point.

    That's because this years defensive back-ups for the Pats are all going to be All-Pros.

    I take nothing from the preseason at all, let alone game 4. They should do away with this game and give a bye going into the RS.

    This Pats-Giants game is the prime example of how worthless the 4th preseason game is.

    It's really just 4 15-minute windows for guys to get injured.

    Believe it or not, once you win a few Super Bowls, you don't need to prove you are an NFL quality QB.

    IMO he can take a dump in the middle of the field and not get any heat from it 2 SB MVPs, he can do anything.

    What do you mean "good pass". The Jets didn't pass on him, they wanted him. He chose the Patriots. He's had a week's worth of practices...I guess the Pats made a good call "passing" on Tebow

    Point is its preseason, and the Giants shouldn't be getting criticized for offense not scoring and neither should the Jets.

    Can't wait til the Jets score a TD on the opening drive vs. Buffalo. Sanchez produced 32 TDs last year and suddenly the media wants everyone to panic and think he might never score again.

    Dump you.

    The point wasn't that Eli sucks, but that preseason is a joke and all this media hysteria is dumb. The fact that half of you schmoes on this board are buying into it and writing off the season already is hilarious.
