We are gonna be super attractive to free agents now tho. We were pretty attractive last year. With Carr taking another step forward this is a prime destination.
I think so too. He had us playing good defense for a stretch. Never had the benefit of a competent offense like we did this season.
Al had his hands tied
lmao Rodgers is really looking like Cook out there...how the hell is this only a 6 point game.
Collins is a fuggin stud. I want one of those
Maybe the some of those Packers laying all over the field should have gone the Florida last week too...
Spagnolo. Plus, you know that fool is never geting an HC job again, but I hear players think the scheme is complicated to learn.
All that and GB leads because the Giant offense sucks.
Saw that coming
Giants are going to be down an insurmountable 14-6 after dominating the first half....the flipside of having a horrible offense from our having a bad defense.
Told you....Giants fucked.
Wow. No excuse for that
I expect Ben McAdoo not to overreact at all. That means 50 Eli passes should be coming right up in the second half.
You should pull this article up on ESPN regarding Seattle's starting left tackle George Fant
He only played sparingly in college then taken as a FA by Seattle's. He never played LT before!
Seattle's line is the lowest paid in the league. This might come back to haunt them in the playoffs
Nothing works. He gropes, lunges and flails. He feels either a step too fast or a step too slow. George Fant, rookie starting left tackle for the Seattle Seahawks, is new to professional football and new, in many ways, to the very game of football.
He has two jobs: opening holes for running backs and making sure Russell Wilson, the centerpiece of Seattle's championship dreams now and in the near future, emerges unscathed from the penultimate game of the 2016 regular season. It's late December. Seattle. The playoffs loom, and Fant isn't performing well. Chandler Jones, Arizona's anvil of an outside linebacker, speeds around him or motors through, despite Fant's stature (6-foot-5) and heft (296 pounds), fast feet and arms that are as long as fire hoses.
At halftime, he sits at a cubicle in the Seahawks' locker room, head down. Pete Carroll appears, squats in front of him and levels his gaze into Fant's eyes.
"George, just be you. Just get back to being you."
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll's advice to Fant after a rough first half
Fant is incredibly important to Carroll. No player better represents the gamble the Seahawks have taken at the very heart of their team, sinking resources elsewhere while hoping to mold inexpensive, raw talent into an offensive line that can dictate tempo and allow Wilson to work his magic.
"George," Carroll says, "just be you. Just get back to being you."
But getting back to being you is hard when you're still trying to figure out who you are.
Fant is only 24. He's out there in front of God and everybody, learning how to play football, and he's doing it as a starter for a team that, despite its inconsistencies, harbors Super Bowl aspirations. When Seattle signed him as a free agent, he was a basketball star who hadn't played many meaningful snaps for a football team since the eighth grade.
Shit.Don't post that here and give Reggie any ideas.
Giants offense is so Muskrat like
