    I will totally agree. I diddnt see Tony fearing for his life, the WR's not knowing where to line up/ what routes to run and stupid presnap penalties. We are ready to really surprise the NFL come the season opener.

    All teams are vanilla in the preseason except the bottom feeders. It just makes more sense to be when you have the element of surprise of a new offense.

    The Giants playbook is already well-known .

    The differences will be subtle, but Dunbar, Hanna, and the zone-blocking scheme add a different tinge.

    You say, "magic elixir"; S. Jones calls it "secret sauce."

    Hope we don't forget my favorite play of 2012. The iggles put two defender on Beasley and one guy of Dez. Maybe the iggles will keep using that defense.

    I'm ready to see what they do.

    If they up the tempo of the offense it may help us not start out as slow.

    Same reason we kept running from deep in the endzone on kickoffs. We didnt need practice kneeling. And we probably didnt need nearly as much practice running routes. Both those guys desperately need to practice blocking.

    Us fans have not seen anything yet. From last season to this season we have seen changes throughout the team, the coaching staff, and some damn good play from the defense in this preseason. I know it's no big deal, but not letting any team in the endzone even in preseason has to leave an impression on us.

    I bet this team has plays that they practice that nobody outside of the organization has seen so far.

    It's going to be very interesting once the real bullets start flying.

    That is a pretty bold statement given the history of the TE position.

    I think you have to consider the team knows what they have in these kids as pass catchers so they wanted to watch them pass block as well as the team perhaps not trusting the OL with it in such a state of flux. Im not saying OP wasn't also correct, but I think it was a lot less "playing possum" and a lot more of seeing what we have and protecting our franchise QB.

    The TE position has been targeted 19 times during the preseason, with 11 completions.

    Dallas has played 4 games, so that averages out to slightly over 1 per quarter.

    I think your right about them hiding the passing portion of the TE game.
