Giants Have Four Extra Days To Study Bucs

September 6th, 2012

In one of the cruel twists to the 2012 NFL schedule, the New York Giants opened last night and now have four extra days to prepare to play the Bucs in New Jersey on Sept. 16.

Joe doesn’t think this benefits the Bucs one bit, expecially with the Giants now 0-1.

Watching the Giants lose last night, Joe couldn’t help but be grateful that the Bucs leapfrogged New York in the first round of the draft to snag Doug Martin, leaving the Giants with weepy, slippery fingers David Wilson.

    I’ll second you on that Joe, We really made out by moving up and taking Doug and leave the Giants with sloppy seconds of Davis Wilson!

  2. OAR Says:

    It’s a fumble! FUMBLAYA! FUMBLERUSKI! Davie “Fumblina” Wilson fumbles the ball!

  3. Back up kicker Says:

    Wilson was crying like a bitch after the fumble. Can’t wait to see the Muscle Hampster get rollin.

  4. Canadabuc Says:

    We have one good thing going for us in this situation. No teams know what our defensive/offensive schemes are this year. So the extra 4 days are mute at this point in the season

  5. Sneedy16 Says:

    Man Wilson sucked!! He still have the fumbling problem he had in college. He was even worst on kick return taking out of the end zone and only making it to the 15 twice? He looked like the 4.4 he was a lie.

  6. Vic Says:

    Wilson that sissy. Can’t wait for Barron to drill him.

    @ CanadaBuc, Actually the extra 4 days are relevant as:

    A) It allows players a few extra days to rest up
    B) Coaches will get opportunity to watch the game live, take notes as needed, then review coaches tape on Monday/Tuesday
    C) Coaches/Players will get a couple days to work on “bread and butter” plays
    D) I’m sure coaches and players will be reviewing the first half of preseason games 2 and 3, looking for player tendencies that can tip the type of play that’s coming
    E) I’m sure they’ll be looking at some Rutgers/UNC film to try to get a hint of the defense that will ultimately be playing against, especially if there are any similarities.

    Even though we can’t change the schedule, if I was given the choice, I’d rather the Giants not have the extra 4 days, regardless how much is known or not known about the types of schemes we’ll be running.

    Their DL is gonna make our OL cry, and Jfro is gonna get a free colonoscopy. this will be fugly.

  9. OAR Says:

    Nah…Fugly is farting in church or all but one Kardashian!

  10. Big Rob Says:

    robert – The Dallas o-line is much worse than ours and they did alright…

  11. Miguel Grande Says:

    Canadabuc is right, the Giants will be twiddling their thumbs until Sunday afternoon. Any studying of Rutgers tape might hurt their preparation.

    The Buc starters will be more rested since they haven’t competed since the Pat’s game.

    The Bucs have a head start as they have been dissecting live game film since last night. The Cowboys may have exposed some glaring weaknesses.

    Claiborne looks like he is the real deal and will help transform the Cowboys into a top rate team.

    Miguel believes if you can run successfully against Giants, the Bucs can win. On the other side if Jason Pierre-Paul lines up in the gap between Hardman and Trueblood, forget about it.

    McCoy was drafted 12 spots in front of JPP. That guy is the real deal and a home town guy as well. Thanks, Rockstar!

  12. JonBuc Says:

    Giving the SB champs what amounts to a bye week to prepare for the Bucs without having to travel is very generous. This keeps my early 2013 expectations lower than Mo Claiborne’s Wonderlic score. Kidding of course….he looked pretty decent last night but I truly believe he was a better fit for the Cowboy’s scheme and Barron is more of what the Bucs’ needed at this time.

  13. Miguel Grande Says:

    The Buc starters will be more rested since they haven’t competed since the Pat’s game.

    Scratch that, Miguel hasn’t quite woken up yet.

  14. robert Says:

    @bigrob the giants were killing romo until they abandoned the run and romo picked them apart in the passing game. Jfro is no romo

  15. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Miguel obviously doesn’t follow the Bucs or he would know that Harman was released two days ago. The “B” gap will be manned by Trueblood/Dotson and Larsen/Wallace. Get with the program.

  16. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    ^Hardman not Harman

  17. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    ^^Or possibly Meredith too, although I sincerely hope not

  18. Jbrooks8604 Says:

    As robert said our o line is going to have a real problem handling that pass rush but I called the boys beating the giants last night for the same reason that gives me hope for the bucs. The giants d is a one trick pony, the secondary and linebacking core ride the d lines coattails. If we can somehow figure out a way to manage the pass rush we have a shot.

  19. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I think what we seen last night was the giants just getting warmed up. They generally dont start out the season strong but dam sure finish strong. The cowboys didnt really look good the Giants beat themselves with sloppy play as opposed to the cowboys just playing better. I’m glad we are facing them in week 2 instead of week 16. But this game as well as the season will be determined by how well we play in the trenches. That is our weakness on both sides of the ball.

  20. OAR Says:

    Uh…I could care less about the Giants THIS week! Hope our team aren’t like some of these fans and looking ahead. We can start worrying about the Giants on Sept 10th.

  21. OAR Says:

    Please don’t get up on our account!

    “Scratch that, Miguel hasn’t quite woken up yet.”
    says it all about your posts.

    really nice to have 20/20 hindsight, huh. noone thought jpp was going to do what he has done, not even the giants. you are some act miguel payasito. i think that act is illegal though once you cross the border.

  23. stevek Says:

    After seeing Wilson’s performance last night, I am even more stoked abou the trade up for Martin.

    Too many times have the Bucs drafted a player, and one pick prior the STUD at said position was taken. It feels great to be on the right end of the equation this time.

  24. stevek Says:


    I was so pissed that the Bucs didn’t even scout JPP as USF. What a crock of sh!t.

    For real, a 6’6” athletic freak who can do a backflips in all of his football gear.

    I hope McCoy steps up this season. It is painful to think we were 1 pick too late on Suh, and 12 too early for JPP.

    I am confident with out new Coach and Butch Davis, the right draft picks will be (and have been) made.

  25. princespanky Says:

    The Giants are very beatable. Their offense sputtered and their secondary is substantially injured at this point. The 4 days of studying are unimportant but the 4 days of having their injured corner backs worked on with their trainers could make a difference.

    I enjoy the comments about Claiborne. He looked alright in coverage but when Bradshaw came at him on the TD he could barely get a hand on him let alone tackle. Laughable. The Cowboys are going to have to give Claiborne help every play just so he can get somebody to the ground with a gang tackle. Maybe between Jenkins and Claiborne they can combine to make one player that is a below average tackler.

  26. Big Marlon B Says:

    Butch Davis was a hell of a coach, but not so much as a talent evaluator….i don’t know why everyone thinks he will have such an integral role in finding the right pieces for this team. Remember, this is the guy who picked the legendary William Green over his very own Clinton Portis. How did that work out?

    I know there are draft misses every year, and I’m not trying to be negative a la Thomas and Miguel….I’m just saying lets temper the enthusiasm in regards to Butch’s scouting/talent evaluation abilities.

    I think the right move was made to jump and get Martin…Wilson may be flashier, but Martin will be more consistent and reliable. I think Wilson will have a good career. I just feel terrible that he fumbled early and was caught crying on national TV in his debut. He needs to control his emotions better and learn to not ride the emotional roller coaster.

  27. Miguel Grande Says:


    Laughable, reminded me of Deon Sanders. Their other corner Carr whiffed on a tackle as well. Hehe.

    @Big Marlon

    When Miguel don’t join in with the Amen Chorus it’s being negative. Does Grande have to check his IQ at the door when entering this site?


    I know this concept may be incomprehensible to you but we are not all in the same time zone as you. I just ask that the Rockstar might skip playing golf on Saturday and actually attend a live football game in CITS Stadium where he might have tripped across a future NFL Hall of Famer.

    He then could have done some fancy footwork, which he loves to do, dropped back 10 spots, maybe picked an extra 2nd rounder as well as a genuine disruptor. Not a Gaines Adams disruptor but a Warren Sapp type.
