Bradshaw could sit sunday.
Stats-wise, it looks like the Falcons are average on defense. They allow a lot of yardage, but don't allow many points. Hmmm, how will that translate against a team like the Giants who can move the ball but can't score touchdowns?
The key for the Giants offensively is to stop John Abraham. He had a monster start vs. the Giants in their playoff game last year. He was all over Eli. The Giants adjusted and were able to block him starting somewhere in the second quarter. It also helps that Diehl is not at LT anymore.
On defense it is all about pressure and coverage. The pressure has been hit or miss the last couple of weeks. It was non-existent vs. the Skins and Saints, but was all over Rodgers and the Packers. The coverage was also very good against the Packers, but dismal against the Skins and the Saints. How many times did BobbyGIII find an open Garcon for a first down? How many times did Brees throw a pass of more than 20 yards in their game against the Giants? I think it was 5 or more. I thought they were playing prevent on several occassions. The trio of Roddy, Julio and Tony are pretty damn good and will cause problem...especially if Prince doesn't play.
Wilson's gonna need help and I hope its not Lumpkin who's been out there. He's a fine Ware-ish 3rd down guy, but for carries I'd like to see Torain get some time.Patricia Traina@Patricia_Traina
At this point, I would be absolutely stunned if Bradshaw plays Sunday., let alone makes the trip.
Although I guess if Bradshaw doesn't play they'll have to dress both of them. I need Wilson to carry both my FF teams right now.
Roddy White is a game-time decision.
Prince is hopeful to play, but it doesn't sound like he will.
I have Julio Jones on my FF team.
So many mixed emotions....
^^ I have Julio also.. Along with Eli and the Black Unicorn..
**** your FF teams
I know a lot of people go sack crazy..but I don't care if they don't sack him.
I just think they need to get pressure on him, distrup his timing. Like they did with brees. Collapse his pocket, don't give him constant clean pockets to throw in. I think that's more important.
What I thought was funny, before tonight's game Foles had been sacked as many times in 5 games as Eli had all year.
