With Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in the rearview and Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles on deck, we're turning the page around here…moving on from last week's feel-good victory and looking at what should be a tough game on the road for the Giants.

Despite how bad Philly looked last week getting spanked by the Arizona Cardinals, they always show up to play Big Blue so hopefully the Giants don't get caught in a trap. Tomorrow morning we'll have our Insider post with the guys from Eagles101.com giving us a scouting report, but for now let's hear what the Giants players themselves have to say about the Eagles.

First up: Eli Manning, who sees a defense that tries to do the same old thing but in a new way.

"Probably not bringing as much pressure as they have in the past with previous defensive coordinators. But they're still very talented, and I think they have great confidence in their front four that they can get a sack without blitzing. They have very good corners and are very aggressive with their safeties. Their philosophy might have changed a little bit, but it's still all about getting to the quarterback, getting pressure on the quarterback."

Next up: Hakeem Nicks, who summed it up by saying "they know us, we know them."

"They still the same Eagles. Still got that tough mentality. Still play a lot of the same coverages."

Now, Eli's favorite target: Victor Cruz, who said it was up to him and Nicks to get off the press coverage the Eagles are sure to throw at them, and that he didn't expect the Eagles to match up Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rogers-Cromartie on a particular receiver.

"They don't discriminate. They're [just] going to put everybody out there. I don't think they're going to match us; whatever side me and Hakeem go to they're just going to play it straight up."

Cruz also said he expected much more press coverage than the Giants saw from Carolina last week. Number 80 said it was up to he and Nicks to beat the corners at the line with their athleticism.

And because we don't discriminate here at Giants101, here's defensive quarterback Michael Boley talking about Michael Vick and his early season struggles:

"Nothing's really different about him, it's just teams have been able to get some pressure on him. Anytime you get a guy moving out of the pocket, out of his comfort zone you can cause some frustration."

Boley's right that the offensive line has left Vick exposed the past few weeks and Giants fans can only hope they do it again this week. Asked if he and his defensive teammates were licking their chops, Boley played it cool.

"To an extent, but at the same time we know who they are, we know they're a good team, we know they're gonna be gunning for us."

Man, it feels like there's twelve days between Sunday's during football season…
