I bashed Dak last week, have to eat crow and give him props now - dude was flat out spectacular y-day. It's in large part what's so damn frustrating about Dak, one week he's dog shiit, the next he's All Pro like. 

Far as K. Moore, f'k him, I'm not acknowledging shiit for that idiot.. He's had Pollard all this time and he's JUST NOW giving this kid his due touches, just now getting him involved in the passing game, just now realizing he's the most explosive/best rb on the team.. Pollard himself said the 68-yard td wheel route to him was a brand-new play just created his past week.. What, how is that even possible??? 

And in case nobody noticed, Dak finally had his # called in a couple run plays. It was only a couple, but damn were they huge, all chain moving difference makers. I'm sure K. Moore will put that on the shelf and not call them again for 3 or 4 weeks. :rolleyes:

I noticed one of Dak's key runs on 3rd down for a 1st.  I agree with everything you wrote.  Good post Cruzer.

Agreed.......yes, Dak was possibly the best I've ever seen him. The team was complete

Omg, you are so right. 

Lost in all the K. Moore, Dak, run defense, wr talk..........is kicker. When you think back to training camp and all the disgust and panic with both kickers - Dallas was actively searching for somebody else to come in and compete for the job. I don't think anyone saw this coming out of Maher - he's not only been accurate, the kid has a leg! I think the stat is, nobody in history has more fgs of 60 yards or more than he. :huh:

Gonna be a bloodbath on Thursday.  We have run out of players. Not that it was looking great even with, but the Boys are going to have some fun now. Parsons might get 5.

Anger is also amazing.......dang, most likely the best kicking duo we've ever had

Jerry & Co. are doing a great job :)

It's a good thing there are subtitles, or I wouldn't have a clue as to what they were saying...

In addition to all the other injuries, the Giants will be without three of their starting OL and TE. This will be over quickly. I will not enjoy this. On a side note, the Giants have not scored an offensive touchdown in their 3 thanksgiving games in the super bowl era. They have played 15 in their history and haven’t scored an offensive touchdown since 1938.

You guys still scare me, almost as much as the Cowboys on Thanksgiving lol

Recently I've been impressed with Daniel Jones, he doesn't get nearly the respect he deserves.

and yet I was called crazy for suggesting Dallas should have let him kick a 53 yarder in Green Bay and tried to stop the TD. I know there is more in play than simply making the kick but part of the push back I got was "53 yards!, it wasn't indoors! etc"

eh. Im not an "anti-Giants" Jets fan but I think "Danny Dimes" gets as much respect as he deserves. He has NOT been good until this year and good is relative. He is 9th in QBR, 22nd in passing yards, 17th in completion % and 19th in passer rating. He is making plays with his legs and more importantly has finally cut down his turnovers.

I think Dak is better than he gets credit for and when he is healthy I wonder how much of his "bad weeks" is really just Moore/Mikey

Danny has been better because the Giants MO all season has been to ride Barkley and take what is there with short routes. They do that because their WR corp has been lacking since day one of the season and they have no choice.  Jones can throw the deep ball, he has in the past. But he has no one to throw it to. Have him start doing that now and his turnovers will return.   My fear is that we still haven’t found out what he can do with a line and wr’s. And I’m not convinced he can get it done at this point. I get a young Ryan Tannehill vibe on DJ. I guess you can win with that. And King Henry.

I also forgot to mention Schultz having some key blocks throughout the game. If you haven't seen them, you should check them out.

I don’t believe anyone called you crazy, but a few definitely disagreed with going for the fg.

 

I in fact still stand by that.. It was freezing in GB, the breeze was into, and Crosby had failed miserably in his own effort in that direction earlier. Plus, kicking that fg does not win you the game. DAL hasn’t stopped Rogers the entire 4th quarter - all of the sudden they were gonna do it then off a fg? Kicking in a 74* controlled dome is nothing like kicking in what they had in GB…. you’re a golfer, that same 165 yard July 7-iron still fly 165 in January and 35*? 
 

I still go for it on 4th and 4 there.

1. this is the response i expected, and its still a good debate for sure

2. Mason Crosby has no range. Can't compare his leg at this stage in his career to Maher's.

3. I did state there was more to it than simply kicking the FG, as it wasn't for the win... but the recent realization of some people in this thread that Maher has a strong leg is what I already knew and why I felt a 53 yarder was worth it in that game.

Don’t know how closely you follow Dallas, but Rogers owns us. Every time he’s needs a late comeback, he’s done it. You don’t give him the ball and chance to beat you - you go and beat him.

Throw in a stout Defense, and yeah, you can rack up an impressive era of regular season wins. Get a few division titles if you play in a sh!t division.

Super bowl? Not so much.

Zeke's on the books for almost $17m next year. No way in hell can Dallas pay the 2nd best back on the team that kind of jack. 

I think Dallas goes to Zeke and gives him the option - redo his deal and take less, or take the $11m hit and cut bait.

Keep in mind also, Pollard is a UFA after this season................... you wanna pay him or Zeke?
