Giants vs. Eagles preview

This preview talks about how desparate the Eagles are to win and how the Giants aren’t expected to improve much on last season’s record. A few things ring true: The Giants offensive line needs to give Kurt Warner time. A pressured Warner is no better than a pressured Collins. If Warner has time, the Giants need to take advantage of the inexperienced Eagle secondary.

For some unknown reason Luke Petigout is touted as the only returning offensive lineman from last year, so obviously this wasn’t written by a Giants fan as we all have high hopes for Diehl. Lucier may not start, but he’s also returning. They also have the “key matchup” as Toomer vs. Pinkston. I can’t explain that either.

Newsday doesn’t give the Giants much of a chance. This article claims that the Eagles corners are good enough and that while Emmons will be missed the addition of Kearse is more important. I’d also like to note that the Eagles are so worried about losing Westbrook (their last good running back after injuries to Buckhalter and Staley) that he won’t be returning punts.

Here’s another article that treats things a little more fairly in my view but still concludes that the Eagles will win because there are fewer new pieces to fit into place. With so many new Giants learning Coughlin’s new system, I can’t help but worry about how well all the new Giants can work together. If they do come together as a team, they have the talent to match up against and beat the Eagles.
