Just in time for the unraveling of the dynasty (hopefully) :P

Season starts this week, can't wait! I'm quietly confident about the Giants (though I'm always a little too optimistic) - such good weapons on offense, especially if Daniel Jones improves (read: stops fumbling) at QB in his second season. The defense is another story but if we can regularly put 30+ points on the board (a very rare occurrence in the last few years) we have a good chance in a still-weak NFC East. Cowboys should romp it, mind - but they never do.

I'll try not to bang on about fantasy, but my draft was last night and I'm quite happy with it :)

I’ve kept an eye on it while making dinner (a very basic Thanksgiving dinner :D), but I’ve had to give the TV up, on the understanding that I’ll get it back for the big NFC East trashclash coming up next!

Shame Ravens @ Steelers was postponed, was gonna record it and watch tomorrow.

Kind of a boring week this week for some reason. Maybe it's a hang over from Burrow getting hurt and the nonsense of a Saints Vs Broncos game

We are somehow 6-6 and almost back to full health with ONLY 7 guys injured

Meh, I enjoyed the early window, Giants win helped :D but yeah, later window was a little dry beyond marvelling at Tyreek Hill.

Saints. Whodat since Bobby Herbert, a lot of UK fans took to Chi, Niners, Miami, and Denver back in the 80's - it was tough for a loooooooong time.

Giants won the Super Bowl the year I started following them :lol: but I’m paying for it now.

You’re gonna need a Fuller replacement, done for PEDs :shock:

I initially moaned about Ravens @ Steelers being postponed on Thanksgiving, but it’s worked out excellently cos I can watch it tonight as it starts at 20:40! I’ve got Benny Snell and my opponent has Gus Edwards (both top RBs due to covid), so I’ll be interested throughout... luckily I also have a decent lead.

How did you fair?

I won 1 league by 0.48 due to Tucker only scoring 2pts and the Raven DEF scoring 8 for me :D

Jeez, your opponent must be spitting feathers! I won easily enough, early Edwards TD and McFarland sharing with Snell had me sweating, but it soon became apparent that nobody was getting a great score, which was fine with my lead :)

The Steelers won't care but that was an awful performance against an essentially 3rd string team

I'm New York born and raised so Giants are my team. The NFC East is so bad it's hilarious I think the division winner might have 10 losses. I'm in first place in both of my fantasy leagues so that is a plus

Just have to enjoy the mediocrity :lol:

Playoff picture looks pretty funny right now, with the 4-7 Giants currently getting a home game against the 7-4 Rams. NFC East is still anyone's, but Giants' schedule is tough from here unfortunately.

I jumped on Tebow train and I've been Broncos fan ever since. Although I stopped following NFL because they mix politics and sport too much.

I've heard that from a few people and I think they don't mix nearly as much as they could. Look at any documentary on High School or even College football, it's mostly politics with football on the side. I'd say there has been more grandstanding this year than before but genuine politics I don't see it.
