CBS Sports: Bills' defense will 'end the career of Eli Manning' in Week 2

Recommended Posts

sad eli has gone out like this with poor coaching and management.  his defenses have been trash for the last decade along with the o line. he deserved better but that's what happens.

Actually Peyton won two too. 

 

Technically, Peyton won one and then 3/4 Peyton won the other... the second one happened after his arm fell off. Not sure if that means he gets 133% of the credit he’s due, or if 25% just gets tacked on to Von Miller...

I don't understand the love for Dallas's defense around here.

They are very solid everywhere on the defensive line and have arguably the best LB corp in the game in Smith/Vander Esch/Lee. They were a top 10 unit last year hands down. Weak in the secondary and I imagine that's where Daboll will look to exploit them. This game will very much come down to playcalling and Allen having a good day. Singletary and Gore are not going to be able to run against those LBs imo...we might see Yeldon getting snaps, and if Brown can get open there will be opportunities

Not that a fans opinion matters, but I don't like all hype around the bills going into this week. I mean unless it's like 34-3 at halftime, I don't know that this game is gonna be THAT easy for the bills. They're making the giants out to be Miami

Correct.  The Giants will be picking 3rd in the draft, not 1st.

Although probably some merit to this, barring injury Eli more than likely hangs around a few more games. I doubt he wants to sit until the Giants are technically out of it. He may have little choice after this week’s beatdown.

So it's utterly inconceivable that Eli's a shell of his former self. Got it. :lol:

Just like how Brady, Rothlisberger, Rodgers, Rivers, Newton, Ryan, Flacco and Brees are shells of their former selves. 

 

Cmon, give me a break

Newton, Eli, flacco and rothlisberger are CLEARLY not what they once were, man. The other guys you have something of a case for.

Schein has always seemed to like the Bills. However, his interest and optimism seems more amped up than ever before. He obviously senses something because he is getting bolder!

I stand corrected about Peyton Manning, for my money the best QB ever.

 

Thanks for pointing that out.

 

As for Eli's arm, he did OK last week without much help from WRs.  He is still dangerous. 

 

Right Eli is still pretty good. Can still get's lots of yards throwing but don't turn it into TDS and a really bad D past few years.

I don’t have any hate towards Eli, 2007 SB was one of my greatest sports moments. We had just picked up my brother from boot camp. He was home for a few weeks, him and I got to watch Eli sink the Pats in the heart of NE. 

 

Tomorrow very well might be the end of him but he shouldn’t even being starting anyways. Two weeks in a row, Eli and Dalton, hard to hate either of them. 

 

Plenty of hate brewing for week 4.

 

This.

 

I owe a debt of gratitude to Eli and the Giants - for 2 reasons in different seasons.

Man that would be amazing if we made Eli play so bad we started the Jones era for next week.

"...we're moving on to Cincinnati..." After a w this week.  Surprisingly, I am more concerned about the home opener.  That is the type of game the past bills tended to lose.  Tbh, I am already sold on this season. A loss tomorrow or week 3 doesn't impact my buy in but for the first time in a long time I expect the bills to outperform both week 2 and 3 opponents.

I'm worried about tomorrow game. Cowboys kicked there butt. But a new OC for Cowboys helped lots without much film. There D might be that bad. But it's a should win game.

Manning seems like such a meek guy, but he's a fierce competitor and still pretty good.  He won two SBs, one more than his brother.  Something like this is just motivation for him.

His brother won 2 as well.

Perhaps, but I thought the real bulletin board stuff had to come from the opponent's players or coaches?

Look at it this way:

 

Some games are a test for the offense.  Some games are a test for the defense. 

 

And some games are a test for the coaches: can they prepare and inspire the team after a hard-fought come from behind victory, to play hard and focus and not believe the hype?

Flacco, Newton and Rothlisberg are all shells now. Cam won’t finish the year.

btw...if Manning is looking for bulletin board material he won't get it from Allen:

Allen was asked about Manning before their showdown on Sunday and the second-year Bills QB said he respects Manning’s “Hall of Fame career.”  “(He is) One of the greatest ever to suit up. I met him at the Manning Passing Academy a few years ago. He is just a great guy off the field too,” Allen said. “He is somebody young quarterbacks can look up to and just as far as how you model yourself as an NFL quarterback. He is super respected around the league and that is for a reason. He has played at a high level for such a long time, so it will be kind of fun to match up against him.”

It's not even that much hype about the Bills.  I've seen predictions that they lose too.  And they're only a 1 1/2 point favorite.   I think tomorrow we see the Bills win comfortably like they should have last week.  They're the better team if they aren't sloppy with the rock.

Just as an FYI I predicted this a month ago. Tomorrow will be Eli's last start for the Giants (so long as Jones stays healthy the whole year). 

He should have seek'd a trade to Jacksonville in the off season.  The JAX are built for success.
