So the Jets are 3-2, albeit taking advantage of an early cupcake schedule. Still impressive, considering.
The Eagles are the class of the NFC right now when you factor in every phase of the game. And you know Jeffery is going to let loose soon because teams can't keep ignoring everybody else. Ertz and Wentz have an electric connection.
While the Eagles are playing best in all phases, I think we can bet on Aaron Rodgers leading the Pack past anybody until proven wrong.
lolCowboysDefense. Classic performance yesterday from that crew.
So the Texans can score. They might be incredibly dangerous come playoff time.
Who are the Jags? If Bortles can slightly improve his play, they'll be division winners.
No, Big Ben isn't done. He still has it. The Steelers just aren't that good. This team is a Sam Bradford start away from being 2-3, and if the Ravens were even remotely healthy, they could even be 1-4. They're overrated. For the past 5 years under Tomlin, they've been overrated.
The Raiders are in trouble. With or without Carr.

The Giants need to start preparing for the post-Eli era. I know their OLine is a train wreck, but if your starting QB is 37, and you have a top three pick in the draft, it's time to invest in your future. Especially if the QB class is as good as next years looks.
In fact, the entire Eli/Rivers/Ben/Palmer wave of QBs looks like it might be coming to an end. Although like you, I'm not quite ready to give up on Roethlisberger just yet. He's good for one clunker every year. I don't think the Steelers are lacking talent, though. I'm fairly confident that they'll still coast to an AFC North title this season.

Giants need to rebuild. Badly.
A lot of us (though not me) thought they'd win 12 games because we added weapons, ignoring the fact that the organization ignored it's atrocious OL. Eli has done a ton for us, coming up in big spots - used to always hear about his 4th quarter comeback drives. Haven't heard about those in years now, and he's getting old.
Time to focus on the future - get a QB in the top 5, or even a Tackle, probably even higher than that the way things are going. Maybe even try to move up in the draft and get an Tackle or a LB late in the 1st. A lot of teams seems to find solid talent rounds 5-7, Giants almost never do. So just package some picks, or a pick and a decent player, and move up.
Gonna be a lot of changes to our team too. McAdoo, Jerry Reese for starters.
PS. McAdoo only got that gig because the was the OC for one year, and they didn't want a new coach bringing in a new offensive scheme that quickly. In the end it was a terrible decision.
PPS. Would love to get Sam, but I would be fine waiting for a QB in the 2nd round. You can probably get a solid future QB there. If a great Tackle is available in the top 5, they gotta go that route. Look at what Dallas can do with a strong OL.

I dont know if itd be feasible, but itd be smart to get an OC that is an OL guru (like Bill Callahan)

It's crazy how all of the class of '04 QB's started showing their age at the exact same time.
