SCOTT PIANOWSKI: We have the Giants at the WFT football team is minus 3. Total set in the low side, 40.5. I know there's a quarterback change in Washington, OK, but Ryan Fitzpatrick-- look, he wasn't Dan Marino. It wasn't Joe Theismann. I mean, he was a good journeyman player. Maybe Taylor Heinicke, he can be some semblance of that. I still like the skill talent on the WFT. I still think this is an excellent defense. And other than a few Sterling Shepard, highlights I don't know what the Giants did well in week one. I think the FTE-- I think they lost a reasonable game against a good Chargers team. I don't think they cover themselves in shame or anything. I think Washington gets back in the spot, wins convincingly. It's going to be one of my five darts of the week. Give me the WFT minus 3.

FRANK SCHWAB: Absolutely. I mean, I hate to start the, you know, our show here with kind of something that's going to sound very hot cake-y. But I it's a legitimate question. Are we positive that Daniel Jones is better than Tyler Heinicke? Really? Like, I don't know. Like, as I sit here today, which quarterback would you rather have? I thought Heinicke looked pretty good last week. He, you know, coming in cold, which is always tough. You don't take the snaps with the starters during the week. I thought he played just fine. He played a good, solid game. We all saw what he did in the playoffs last year.

And meanwhile, you know, Giants were one of the underdogs I was on as kind of a contrarian play. And I'm watching the Giants, you know, on the big screen where I'm at because the Broncos are on. And I'm just saying Daniel Jones doesn't have it. I was trying to be patient with him. You know, you talk about he had a lot of negative aggression type of deals last year that I thought were going to bounce back this year. Giving him some time, and then I'm just watching it. It just-- he doesn't have it. There's just no juice there. I thought this Giants offense was bad. Saquon's obviously just not where he needs to be yet. And I think this Washington defense is going to be the best unit on the field by far.

And again, this line has probably come down a little bit to the field goal because of the quarterbacks. But are we positive Daniel Jones is the best quarterback in this game? I don't think he is. At least you could make an argument that by the end of the year, we're going be saying, yeah, Heinicke is just as good as Jones if not better. So yeah, Washington was an easy one for me. I've already got a bet down on this. And this is, yeah, like you said. You know, you do your dart throws. I do top five. We're doing. And Washington's going to be on all of that because I don't know why this game is a field goal. I have no faith in the Giants right now.
