boohyah Posted November 19, 2007 Share Posted November 19, 2007 TOO LATE! LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME WRITING A SUMMARY. I'M SO GREAT!! :worshippy: :worshippy: :worshippy: In all seriousness, what a strange game. It's like we picked the Lions up by the tail and dangled them for 3 1/2 quarters, let them down and then realized "these are Lions we just released". Just not very bright ones. I was looking forward to the Lions - Packers game on thanksgiving, because the Dallas game is going to be a dud and the other game is not being broadcast locally. However it looks like the Packers will be too strong for the Lions. That said, this is the time of year where we tend to bottom out. I have to say that that was a nice rebound game by Eli yesterday, to me he looked poised and as Kramer said "poise counts". What 's really annoying about the broadcast yesterday was the sudden Eli lovefest towards the end of the game. They jump all over him last week cause he's not quite Romo, this week the Giants will win a superbowl with him. Pick a side Fox. Anyway he looked good. Jacobs limping off again was not a good sight, because he was having a strong game. Loved his running downfield after the catch, it's a real strong point for him because at that point he's taking on safeties and corners and he lights them up. Frankly I thought the Lions D played him pretty smart as they were hitting shoulder tackles but not grazing him like some of secondary tends to do. Droughans did some nice plough work when he came in, but we need Ward back soon, and I'd like to see us get Bradshaw some touches if they can fit him in. Offensive line did a nice job giving Eli time yesterday, but I have to say Eli did a nice job stepping into the pocket, much better than other games he's played where he has tending the stay back. Sinorice Moss is a BEAST!!!!. Seriously, we've been beating him up, but he did good yesterday and I don't even get on him for the fumble because the lions were going after that aggressively all day, it happened Jacobs too. If he could be relied on to run some streak patterns going forward that would be nice, because the long ball has been taken out of our playcalling with Plaxico struggling to get downfield. By the way, people who get down on Plax, please note the catch he made as he was falling down on the turf yesterday, that was a hell of a catch. Amazing how Hedgecock gets released by the Rams and becomes a starter for us, he's improving. Kevin Boss showed some nice soft hands yesterday, but he was lucky he didn't get stripped, because he didn't have a good grip on the ball. Toomer and Shockey did fine, Shockey is just tough boy!. Strahan will now go to the pro bowl, Justin Tuck continues to impress, when you consider he's getting all his sacks as an undersized interior lineman. Osi's big contribution yesterday was to knock Kiwi out for the season. Poor Kiwi has had a very confusing second season. The Giants IMO have got to move Osi around a little, he's getting doubled and I wouldn't mind seeing him move around the line a little, have him in the 3-4 but line him up as a linebacker and blitz him. Do something, he's clearly a focus. It's going to be interesting to see how Torbor does now.by the way, I don't see him as a starter, but does Chase Blackburn play at all?. Seriously, I see Pierce out there all game and he looks tired sometimes, which I can understand. He needs a blow. It's going to be interesting at season's end to see what the Giants do with Gibril, because I think he's being pretty solid this year. Butler played better yesterday, but Sam madison is getting burned. I shudder at the thought that he could be the guy lined up on Moss, can't Aaron Ross get some reps as the "man" marker. Kevin Dockery, not Ross has buried Corey Webster, it's kinda sad to see. I thought Special teams had their best game this season. Great on kickoff coverage, McQuarters running the ball back well, Bradshaw even better. And Tynes, is there a better kicker in the league. I'm glad I never got off his bandwagon!. Great job all around and an important one. Coaching is maddening, Coughlin has that look on his face yesterday, but it was hard not to, because those dumb penalties kept coming up. But you have to wonder, when the Giants are 2nd and 1, why with 2 of the bigger rb's in the league, are we throwing the ball all the time. I realise it's the sexy thing to do, get those extra yards knowing that you have a 3rd and 1 in the bag, but shit, we've shown that that's not been too successful for us, and sure as shit yesterday, we're 2nd and 1, in the Red zone, pass incomplete, it's 3rd and 1, we get a 5 yard penalty and now it's 3rd and 6. There's a monster difference between 3rd and 1 and 3rd and 6 in the red zone. Pound the ball Kevin.........PLEASE??? I'm glad we won, we controlled the game, but we got lucky in the end as we kept them around. The Vikings coming to town gives us a chance to make a statement and hopefully we won't take it lightly, we can't afford to. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
