Giants Can’t Stop Eagles

Giants Rumors & News

The expected smashmouth, defensive, low scoring NFC East battle never materialized in the Giants-Eagles game, as it looked more like an old AFL contest. It was George Blanda vs. John Hadl. Well, the Giants defense made it seem that way, because they can’t stop anybody. If the 82-year-old Blanda stepped on the field against them today, he’d pass for 400 yards. Sure, both starting safeties are injured and they have a corner playing safety, but last night’s performance was downright ridiculous.

Week 7 Observations


1. Chris Duhon is worth starting again: Duhon is playing much better and is averaging 12.2 points, 6,7 assists, 3 rebounds and 2.5 threes this month. He is coming off a game where he hit 6 three-pointers and has played in at least 34 minutes in four straight games.

2. Carl Landry is a beast: Landry has scored at least 20 points in four of his last five games. On the season he is averaging 16.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1 block and is shooting 57% from the field and 88% from the foul line.

3. Is it time to trade Kobe Bryant?: Kobe was able to play through a partially dislocated finger on Saturday but he shot just 7-24 from the field with a season low 16 points. However, he did attempt a season high 9 threes and should be able to play through this injury and contribute all across the board.

4. Danny Granger is out again: Granger missed 15 games last season and is out 4-6 weeks this season with Plantar Fascia (right heel). With his …
