Mcclure Vs Graziano - Espn

FALCONS VS. GIANTS


Atlanta Falcons: The Giants are far from being a dominant team, but the fact that they host this game and are coming off a bad Week 1 loss against the Cowboys is bad news for the Falcons. There is some uncertainty about Julio Jones' status coming off a hamstring injury, which could affect the flow of the offense. Not to mention the Falcons have not had success on the road against the Giants, losing three in a row there, including a playoff loss. Although Eli Manning lacks his full stable of playmakers, the running game tandem of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams, who combined for 120 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Falcons last season, might be too much, even for an improved Falcons defense to overcome. Giants 24, Falcons 21. -- Vaughn McClure



New York Giants: I expect the Giants' offense to function better this week than it did Week 1 in Dallas, especially if it can get the ball before the 11th minute of the game this time around. And I understand the Falcons are a lousy road team that's lost seven straight road games outside the NFC South (including one last year against the Giants). But I just don't have any faith in the Giants' ability to stop Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons' offense. The Giants pressured Tony Romo on just six of his 45 dropbacks last week (third-lowest percentage in the league), while Ryan was pressured by the Eagles on just three of his 37 dropbacks (lowest percentage in the league).Falcons 28, Giants 24. -- Dan Graziano

Guys there oline will be prepped for what out dline does. and will couinter

I agree, the difference this year is I don't think it will matter as much. The whole staff will be much better prepped and I think they will unleash some new tools to mix things up.

No one has learned anything. This is not a Mike Smith team. The past literally means nothing.

This is exactly what I was going to say. That team last year was sad to watch. A lot of the same players, but it's not the same product. Keep thinking that if you want. Doubt they break 100 yards on the ground. No receiving threats outside of OBJ. I think this defense is chomping at the bit to see this offense. I don't see them putting up many points on us. I just don't see who will do it if we play like we did the first half for a full game.

Agree. That first half vs the Eagle offense our D just dominated them, smothered everything they tried to do and battered their QB. If our D repeats that performance over the full 60 mins. in New York, no way in hel the Giants offense is going to be able to hang with our offense.

All I know is if we start smacking Manning around in the backfield, GMen gonna get blowed out.
