Also did it to spite the O-Line troubles of blocking for more then 3 seconds. Get the ball out as fast as possible. Except for that first INT he threw in Marshall's direction. That was Bad Eli Manning showing his face for his weekly appearance.
"Daniel Jones looks like the actor they'd cast to play Eli Manning in a movie about Peyton Manning's life."
This is the problem though. Yes Eli put up big numbers. It was snap and out. Real quick reads to not give the Defense a chance to pressure or sack Eli. BUT The Eagles were depleted back there. Teams coming up like Tampa Denver Seattle all have good secondaries and will play cover2 or bump and run man to man not allowing that fast release passes to get off. The line will have to do better in coming weeks or we will see exactly what we saw weeks 1 and 2. Lots of 3rd and longs lot of sacks and over and under thrown passes
It's going to be a long season. Very doubtful they fix it and get hot
And the Defense read way to much on how good they will be. They are an good defense with some luck and help. JPP is a no show like always Snacks got burried yesterday and now Vernon is banged up. Apple has regressed DRC looks older and Thompson is a liability back there. Where is Adams???
We are praising our immobile QB for picking apart 2nd and third teamers. His pass to marshall was more typical of how he has played the last few years.
I have always praised eli for when he carries the team but there is no carry anymore. He makes more mistakes as he presses to try to make up for a putrid offense
Just not a built team for him to win on offense.
There was nothing wrong with his pass to Marshall. He threw up a jump ball to a big, experienced receiver one on one with a rookie CB and Marshall made effort to go for the ball. That INT is on Marshall. Was it a well throw ball? Not really, but at the very least, given his size, should make an effort to try and go up for it. He stayed on the ground flat footed while the rookie CB fro Philly lept up and picked it off.
I also think Eli thought he had a free play as there was a flag thrown at the snap.
The DB clearly had inside position. The ball is clearly thrown inside. Marshall does have to play a bit of DB on that play but with the guy going up for the ball while Marshall was still trying to run underneath the ball it would have been difficult. Sorry but that is just a bad decision and bad throw. The best you could have hoped for is that Marshall tackles the DB and gets pass interference but there is no excusing the pass by Eli. If the pass had gone up the field a bit further, Marshall would have sailed by the DB.

frateb: man, for a second i thought detroit was going to pull this one out... i think that would have given us a chance to get as low as 2nd again?

UncleJoe10: I thought Buck Allen ran hard and would keep him aboard as a nice power running back up to Saquan.

bronxpinstripes: Danny Dimes solved the fumbling problem against the Packers by throwing 3 INTs instead.

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
