JMFP Posted December 16, 2009 Share Posted December 16, 2009 If you wanted evidence that these Giants are not your father's Giants, it was right there just before the half on the play where Osi Umenyiora sacked Donovan McNabb and Michael Boley dropped what everyone assumed would have been an interception but should not have assumed it was not a fumble. Because it was ruled a fumble. And yet, the ball sat there at the Eagle 35-yard line, and sat there, and Giant players ignored it. The ball was finally picked up by one of the zebras and moved back 10 yards, to the spot of the fumble, with an explanation of "inadvertent whistle." "Yeah as a defense, that's what we do. I mean, we do it every day at practice," Boley said. "Even if the QB throws an incomplete pass, we go scoop it up like it's a fumble. And, it's one of those things that we didn't do. It's no excuse for it, we just didn't do it." McNabb promptly hit DeSean Jackson for 44 yards and soon it was 30-17. "I was unaware of it, come to find out it was a fumble, and you could see the refs looking for us to pick it up," Terrell Thomas said. "It was just unfortunate that 11 guys had no awareness to pick up the ball. There's no blame on the coaches, it's all 11." http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giants/big_blue_brain_freeze_CedzwsFiEvHvA8Q8MZmPOO Not to make excuses for Sheridan, but is he just coaching a pack of dipshits? If so, then maybe Spags' "run like a maniac toward the QB" system is really the only way these guys can play defense. Another example is Johnson locking into Alex Smith with DeSean Jackson is streaking past the secondary. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
