    Brad has a lot of faith in Troy. I think that is a plus. The play before Troy dropped the TD pass in the 2nd quarter, I saw Brad yelling to the sideline to get Troy on the field.
    I agree. I think that Brad realizes that Troy is the future of this team. He realizes that a #7 draft pick is never going to progress if he doesn't get playing time and throws. Troy looked really good last game and I seriously think we made a great choice in the draft.

    Re: What should we do to stop the giants big receivers?

    The best way for us to play this hot offense is to make sure we get pressure on the QB with our front four and time our blitzes well (something we always have a tough time doing). If we blitz too much Tiki may burn us with inside draws, but if we time it right and stay unpredictable you may be able to slow these guys down.
    I think that A-Dub and Smoot need to play in your face to start and then mix up the coverages as much as possible. It takes a smart pressure-filled defense to slow this offense down ... both of which we have had trouble being this season ... especially on the road.

    Re: What should we do to stop the giants big receivers?

    Howdy. As a Giants fan I'd say your best chance of stopping the Giants' passing game is to put pressure on Eli, but I think the real question is "how do we win the game?" because the Giants are a pretty talented offensive team and making them one dimensional won't work the same way it might work with...say The Jets. If you take the Jet's Curtis Martin out, you have a sad bunch or receivers to work against - no one that scares you. If you take the Giants' receivers out (hard to do for 60 minutes) then you still have to deal with Tiki Barber and a beast of a running back in Brandon Jacobs on 3rd and short and goal line situations.

    So playing opportunistic defense - creating turnovers and keeping the Giants' offense off the field is what the Vikings will have to do in my opinion, and then look for Robinson and Burleson down the field since the Giants are fielding a rookie and a 2nd year man most of the time in their secondary.

    Also...for whatever reasons, your new/old QB has had some really fine games against the Giants when he played for the Redskins and Tampa.

    Anyway, it should be a fun game Sunday. The Giants are getting much respect and the Vikings should be much better than they are.

    Thank you very much. I usually don't "troll" so I probably won't be back too much, but I'll enjoy myself while here

    Re: What should we do to stop the giants big receivers?

    Maybe we just throw the jinx back to the G-Men? Thinking back the last few years (when) we had the better team, the Giants put it to us. Your talent level as you described was our talent level then and the Gmen'rs took no notice of this and just played good hard football.

    Maybe we (Vikings) need to play the good hard football this time and not worry about who has what so called talent?

    Hey I said pretty much the same thing in the other thread. I guess that means it's a pretty good scouting report on how to beat the Giants. Maybe we should keep this stuff to ourselves
    :grin:
