  1. It’s ONE former Giants player and he was never there when McAdoo was!! Weak effort. Brandon Jacobs is a never-was. TONS of talent but soft.

  2. “For the most part, [Cutler] has been doing his job… But until we clean a lot of things up, it’s going to be hard to even evaluate where he’s at.”

    Gase going out of his way to big-up his QB!

    He’s a “never-was” with 2 SB rings and a couple of 1000yd seasons. And he’s not the only Giant to make side-comment: Odell Beckham Junior (heard of him?) also chose to publicly repeat a comment that McAdoo’s play-calling was “predictable” and Comartie clearly has a problem with McAdoo. And benched cornerback Eli Apple has also spoken out about McAdoo’s culture.

  4. “Colts fans need to be patient, since QB Andrew Luck is.”

    Having watched Jacoby Brissett, I question if there should not be open competition for the QB spot? It seems Luck was good for at least two ints per game. Not so now. Plus, all of the AFCS teams are better. It’s no longer a cake walk for the Colts. Finally, the question may be, will Luck ever come back and how good he will be if he does?

    If Cassel plays they have no shot.

    I think Brissett looks pretty good too. But c’mon. Luck is very good. He’s just been all they have since he’s been there. The team around him has been awful. When has he ever had a competent running game, offensive line, defense, tight ends, or coaching staff around him? Grigson was almost Millen levels of bad. I think Ballard has made some nice moves, but retaining Pagano is a head scratcher. Luck has tried to do it all since he’s been there, sometimes leading to mistakes. I mean, Grigson burnt 3 first round picks in a row on Bjoern Werner, Trent Richardson, & Phillip Dorsett.
