Matt Mosley’s NFC East Chat Transcript:

Matt Mosley of ESPN chatted NFC East today.  You can read the entire transcript here.  As always below you will find the Giants related questions.

Hey Matt,First you must be applauded for picking the Giants to win the division and not buying into what seems to be an overly media hyped Dallas team. However the giants failed last week against the colts. Since the Redskins played almost even with the Texans, and the Texans beat the colts. Does that mean the Redskins should match up pretty well against the Giants this season?

It’s too early to make sweeping judgments on any of these teams. But I think pretty much any team in the league was going to get waxed by Peyton and the Colts the other night. The Giants’ season wasn’t hinging on that one game. But the Colts were in a different situation. They were the team with more to lose. I can almost give the Giants a pass in that game.

Are the Giants coaches at fault for the debacle in Indy? Seems to me that they made no adjustments and had the wrong personnel.

I think everyone’s at fault. The Giants didn’t have any answers for Dallas Clark. And it didn’t help that David Diehl was completely outmanned by Dwight Freeney. The Giants don’t enter a game thinking Diehl will need a ton of help, but he could’ve used some. But again, I think the Colts were going to blow out most teams on this night. The Giants will be fine. Get these out of the way early. The NFC East looks pretty week right now, so it’s not like New York has to worry about another team running off and hiding.

Hey Matt, what are the Giants going to do about the offensive line? Do you think we will see Andrews soong?

I didn’t think it would happen this early, but yes, it could happen. Andrews is apparently working like crazy to get ready. There are people within the Eagles organization who still think Andrews will be a Pro Bowler again. Would they want their names attached to those thoughts? Absolutely not.

After two weeks, how many wins do you give each team in the Beast at year end?

Cowboys – 9Giants – 10Redskins – 7Eagles – 8

Could the Giants get anything for Jacobs, and do you see any team interested?

If he’ll agree to move to LB, there might be a market for him.

Bigger Disappointment — Ramses Barden or Travis Beckum?

Barden right now.

If i (tom coughlin) go 8-8 again this season and miss the playoffs, am I still the head coach for nyg?

It just sort of depends on now it happens. If there are a ton of injuries and stuff out of his control, he’ll still be the coach. But if the defense fails with this new DC, then he could be in danger. But honestly, I think the Giants win 10 games.

Better sophomore wide receiver – Nicks or Maclin?

I like both players, but give me Maclin right now. Nicks has backed up a bit in recent weeks. Not sure what that’s about.

Hey Matt, from watching the Giants game yesterday, I expected us to have trouble with Peyton’s offense, but would you agree that we are having “concerns” now with our o-line?

I’d use a stronger word than “concerns.” Diehl had no chance against Freeney and the Giants were getting knocked off the ball in the running game. That would be my bigger concern. This line showed signs of age last season, but nothing’s really been done about it. I don’t know that Beatty’s the answer either. Might be time to give Shawn Andrews a spin.
