Next Day Thoughts: Giants Redskins

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Giants were absolutely dominant. Now, they just have to keep it up. Here are some Next Day Thoughts, Giants Redskins style.

-You have to give credit to the defense: There was pressure all night. Defense was swarming, really attacking the ball. We saw that earlier in the year. Tuck and Osi had big games. Obviously, they have to keep that up. But very encouraging to see.

-I’m worried about Hakeem Nicks and his injury, but he is something special. He makes 1 yard gains look good. He has such burst, such great hands. I think that if he stayed at UNC another year, he’s a top 10 pick. What a player.

-Eli for MVP. It won’t happen, but he deserves consideration. 26 TDs, 11 INTs, 3,584 yards. Those are big time numbers. Without Eli, this team is not where they are.

-Best game as a Giant for Ahmad Bradshaw. I don’t know how he does it on two bum feet, but he has that burst back. Maybe he’s getting healthy. He’s key. The Giants game started to tail off when he got hurt. He was dominant in the early parts of the year.

-Love to see the fight (literally) in Jacobs. I don’t like seeing brawls, but I think it’s good he fought back. He also played pretty well.

-Terrell Thomas is going to be a stud.

-So is Johnathan Goff

-Quick note on the Redskins: They can’t be that bad, can they? Campbell has no business being out there. He has talent, but there is just no help. And what the hell was that play at the end of the half!?! One of the worst play calls I’ve ever seen. If the Skins hire Shanahan as expected, I wonder how much of an impact he will have. There’s not that much talent of the offensive side. Does Shanahan bring in a new QB? Portis is breaking down. Outside of Cooley, no big wide receiver threats. Shanahan might be a great coach, but you need some talent.

-Good to see Derek Hagan get involved. I was a big fan of his coming out of Arizona State a few years ago.

-Let’s not get too excited. Yes, it was a great game. But it was one game. And it was against the Redskins. Let’s see it sustained. Let’s see it next week. I’m cautiously optimistic. Need to see it again.

-I had a great time covering the game last night. Whether it was on Twitter, or LiveFyre, we had awesome participation. We also had a Biz Markie for Monday Night Theme song petition going on, so that was awesome. Great to be able to converse with such dedicated fans.
