Well, it's not that the EO explanation is better. I am just unaware of it, except the idea of extreme sins and corruption of those people.
We don't know. When Moses sent the 12 spies in they found Nephilim. Why they weren't destroyed by the flood we don't know.

So maybe the Israelite's were killing Nephilim when killing the Canaanites. That's the way the story is told, by the victors.
