This is our emergency pod about Eli's benching.
In an unprecedented Instant Reaction Episode, Zach and Willys break down a devastating loss for the Giants at the hands of the other, other New York team that now owns Corporate Insurance Stadium. In a first half that determined the game, the Bills looked like a team that could win the title... and we all know that they can't.
The Bluethers discuss the unfortunate state of Big Blue's defense and what they might do to improve it. They also chat about—SURPRISE—when Daniel Jones might see the regular-season field, and take a look ahead to the Week 3 matchup in Tampa.
With a bonafide football game complete, the Bluethers talk about... actual football. The Giants are 0-1 and look far from competitive with Dallas, so thank goodness Buffalo is coming back to Corporate Insurance Stadium this week. If the Bills can barely beat the Jets, they're just the team the Giants need.
Of course, the true highlight of the pod is an update on Odell's $300,000 watch, which has now been worn like a sweatband during a professional football game.
With actual football games fast approaching, the Bluethers jump on the mics to break down the most important parts of the preseason, the Giants' roster, and the coming 16 (real) games for Big Blue.
This is our official season preview. Welcome back to Giants Football, Ones.
The Bluethers try a panoply of disruptive innovation technologies to bring you this near-hour of football-adjacent blather. With the preseason well underway and the regular season still a relative abstraction, Zach and Willys break down the hottest headwear stories in the NFL, chat about the sudden promise of Daniel Jones, and read an email from one of the most loyal Ones.
In what may well be the final episode before the proper start of Season 3, you're treated to a sneak peek of the future of Bluething. Enjoy, and happy mid-preseason!
