We have bandwagoners?
Eli Manning is their franchise QB. Shaun hill is a stop gap never-was.

The game was essentially all but over at halftime. Five touchdowns in five posessions will pretty much put a game away, and that's what Drew Brees had engineered after the first two quarters.

Do you think Giants fans are clamoring for Eli Manning to be benched today? Replaced with a backup? Do you think Giants fans are starting threads calling for a complete overhaul of the defense? Benching linemen for innefective play? Do you think some Giants fans are now proclaiming "this team will not make the playoffs!"

Of course they aren't. Because, while it's a loss and a bad loss at that, it's just ONE LOSS. That's all it is. It doesn't mean the New York Giants are a House of Cards. It doesn't mean that Eli needs to be replaced. It doesn't call for wholesale changes on defense or some "new strategy."

Heck, they don't even need to trade for Crabtree!

The Saints-Giants game just goes to show that very good NFL teams can have bad games, one-week letdowns, whatever you want to call it. Before yesterday's game, a lot of people were picking the Giants as a possible Super Bowl team.

One bad loss doesn't equal the end of the season. It doesn't mean wholesale changes are needed. It means that good teams lose games. Good teams sometimes get their keesters handed to them. It just happens. This is the NFL kids.

And the 49ers are still a pretty good team. That's what it means.

I agree with the team analogy but...

Eli Manning can throw out routes. Eli Manning throws well thrown spirals vs ducks. Eli Manning has won a super bowl. Aren't you comparing apples to oranges in terms of the QB issues??

Most posters complaining about Hill have been complaining about his lack of throwing skills since last season. It didn't miraculously start last week.

QB issues aren't what beat us against atlanta...it was Atlanta Exposing our D.
i stopped reading after the first sentence as your opening statement is ridiculous...

the saints did not blow the giants out in anyway, you obviously didnt watch the game, as other than a quick two score lead early in the game, it was totally back and forth in scoring, and then the saints finally opened it up late in the game and scored in garbage time...

not to mention if you score near 30 points, the other team needs to be scoring near 60 or higher for that to really be considered a blow out..

48-27 is better than 45-10.

no, we don't

We have super positive fans and super negative fans though

and then there are the few that realize things such as, the Giants are a s**t ton better than the 49er and have a very good QB, so to compare these 2 situations is pointless.

and ya, shouldn't panic after 1 bad loss it happens, but with how bad this team has been it's very different from the Giants or another team losing bad, they can say "we are still a good team we will bounce back" 49ers have 0 right to say that yet because we haven't done anything to say we are a good team.


PS

49ers 38
Texans 17

Hmm....Well, actually, I was watching the game. It was 34-17 at halftime. If that isn't "game over," I don't know what is. The Saints tacked on another TD in the 3rd quarter to make it 41-17. The Saints only scored two touchdowns in the 2nd half, so I guess I don't understand the statement "saints finally opened it up late." The Saints scored five TD's in the first half and two TD's in the second half. Which half do you think was more productive?

This will be a question on your SAT's.

The Giants actually scored more points in the 4th quarter, where the two teams traded touchdowns, plus the Giants tacked on a field goal. Perhaps this is the point of the game you were referring too? The "garbage time" you were referring too? Where the Giants actually scored more than the Saints? I still don't understand the statement of "saints finally opened it up late," when the Giants actually scored more points than the Saints did in the 4th quarter.

Perhaps we just saw this game from a different perspective.
