Mike Garafolo writes that Terry Cousin is more or less ready to play safety. Gibril Wilson is not expected to play. Neil Best describes the problems Tim Lewis faces and praises the work he did against Atlanta. The only good injury news is covered well by Dan Martin who describes the effect Barret Green’s return ot the defense will have.
In another piece, Best gives some credit to Will Allen and Will Peterson. Will Allen talks about being ready for T.O., but Allen has been beaten for too mnay touchdowns this season if you ask me.
Unlike Best, T.O. doesn’t think much of the Giants. He expects to win. The Eagles offensive line has suffered some injuries, but Paul Flannery still expects the line to play well thanks to smart personnel decisions. Nick Fierro gives us a nice history lesson of the Eagles offensive line, which despite the injuries seems to be in better shape than the Giants line right now. Unfortunately I don’t think the giants makeshift defensive line will be able to dominate the Eagles somewhat depleted offensive line.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to see Will Allen get beaten a few more times. So while I expect the Giants defense to play better than in the opener, I do expect the Eagles to get some points on the board.
