    Two things I haven't seen in a while. A QB not afraid to throw a 50-50 ball now and then and a WR that goes up and gets the ball. Not saying those things will happen in the regular season, although I already know Case will throw his share of 50-50 balls.

    Please tell me that they are just trying to show Eli "respect." The Giants organization continues to spiral into one of the worst run operations in the whole league. Trust me, I know what the signs look like.

    Preseason rant time.....

    First, let me say that it's virtually impossible to judge any of the Redskins QBs right now with the play of the oline and WRs. The left side of the o-line when Case was in was getting blown up every drop back. He still made some good throws and decisions. I think he also had a WR drop a ball. With Dwayne, the second and third team o-lines were getting destroyed just like they did in Cleveland and there were a handful of drops. I couldn't get a good sample since it was difficult for either of them to make a throw. Case did not have an opportunity to drop back and launch it deep. Dwayne had about 3 opportunities with more playing time.

    On Dwayne, last night and this morning, I see people already calling for him to have the starting job based on ONE PLAY. Yes, it was a nice play. He switched the protection, stepped up in the pocket in the face of pressure and dropped a deep dime for a TD. But we need to take the preseason at face value for what it is and nothing more than that. Just because he had one nice play does not mean he's ready for the starting job.

    This reminds me of how people lost their mind over the Daniel Jones drive last week. Ryan Finley went 8/8 on with and versus 2nd stringers like Jones did for a TD drive on us. It doesn't mean he is going to be a good QB. Also, Eli playing bad in the preseason shouldn't have opened anyone's eyes. At this point, we know what Eli is. He's not going to magically light it up losing OBJ and getting Golden Tate after Week 4. That's what makes what Mara said recently so comical.

    I am also seeing Kyler Murray is going to be a bust talk. Really? I am not even a fan of Kyler, but you still can't judge him off last night. RGIII didn't have a great preseason his rookie year. Once the regular season started, you saw what the Shanahans were scheming for him and we all know how that went. I am not saying Kyler will blow up like RGIII, but I am sure that's plenty we will not see till the regular season that Kliff Kingsbury will scheme up.

    Giants fans who aren’t total Eli fanboys are going to lose their mind.

    I don't mind Baker showing some swag, especially if he ends up backing it up. I do think he should have kept quiet about Daniel Jones. You aren't playing him this year and he really has nothing to do with you. Just say you have no opinion and keep it moving.
