boohyah Posted December 17, 2007 Share Posted December 17, 2007 Madden said it. "it's windy". No he said "this team is not playing like a playoff team" Because right now this offense has no direction at all. We are not a team that can afford the luxury of 2nd and 1, go long/deep. We just don't have it. Run the ball, run it dammit, Jacobs couldn't catch worth a shit tonight, but he's killing them on the ground. The offense the last few weeks has come to a standstill, against the Eagles, it could be said that we won the game because the Eagles didn't. This offense has to take every opportunity it gets. That includes Eli running for fucking yardage!!!!. Holy shit, twice tonight he had at least 10 yards in front of him to get get the first down and he sets up and throws deep. He's done this shit for years. One of the things lost tonight is that the offensive line did a decent job out there and he got time to throw, and yes, his receivers failed him at times. Toomer was particularly bad and didn't run great routes either. Plaxico is clearly limited. Jacobs was horrible. Only 2 good things came out of tonight's game was that Sinorice Moss was way better than his brother and that Kevin Boss showed some nice poise out there. The defense got slack just after the break, but every time they needed to, they gave the offense a chance by getting the Skins out of there. Fred Robbins continues his revival and Justin Tuck is the man. You have to be encouraged by the 3 rookies in the secondary. Michael Johnson is playing well overall, Dahl has missed some tackles, but he hasn't looked out of place. Ross made a great play on Cooley. Dockery was unlucky on the missed int, but overall this kid has been strong all year. In case you missed it "Punters and kickers hate the wind as much as QB's". Feagles did fine, Tynes missed his field goal and then went crying to Uncle Tom about the wind. Special teams continues to be solid overall and Bradshaw continues to make something out of nothing on those returns. (we got good value out of the 7th round this year when you think of it). It seems clear to me that Coughlin coaches better on the road, not because of the obvious, but he seems all distracted and flustered at home. I wish the Giants would hire that big Wrestler from years ago, Giant Gonzales or whatever, he was like almost 8 feet tall, and give him a Giant windbreaker and tell him that it's his job to way his arms in the air and implore the crowd so as to save Coughlin from doing it. Seriously, if you think I'm joking, why would a coach who is supposed to be worried about what's going on on the field, be worried about the crowd noise. Gilbride running the ball when we're behind as an offensive mix, isn't so bad. It's not running it earlier that should bother people. The look on Shockey's face kinda sums up the Giants right now as a team. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
