Five 4th quarter collapses in the final two minutes

This is the fifth time this season the Giants have blown a fourth quarter lead in the final two minutes.

 

The Giants have 6 red zone turnovers. 4 are Eli Manning interceptions.

 

Eli Manning has been absolutely outclassed by guys with the last name Cousins and Fitzpatrick, essentially two journeymen. And once again, he can't be bothered to take a sack and instead kills the clock throwing the ball at a receivers feet...not that it would have mattered in this particular case. Had he waited about a half second, Vereen made a move to get down the field and was wide open. Oh, and when you're running clock, don't snap the ball with fucking 5-6 seconds left. Any other time he waits until the clock is about to hit zero.

 

And we paid this guy 82 million dollars. The only time the man can throw a touchdown pass is when Odell Beckham scores from 70 yards out.

The Redskins are the worst team in the NFC East, hands down. Their roster is weakest and they have arguably the worst quarterback and head coach combo. Yet they are going to win the NFC East by default because no other team can get out of their own way.

 

And I have to say, I agree with Jim. Ryan Nassib could be producing the same results that Eli Manning has for far less money. Getting the ball to Odell Beckham and having him make miraculous plays does not make you worth 82 million dollars.

When you make a list of problem areas on this team, Eli is last.

 

You pay a guy 82 million dollars to go out and win games. Barely 50% completion percentage and poor performance in the red zone and at the end of games is not winning games.

 

When you have to make a list of things he needs in order to be successful, he most certainly is part of a problem area.

Eli just passed Dan Fouts in passing. I think there are other weaknesses on this roster.

 

Biggest problems:

 

Our GM has missed far more often than hit.

Our coach doesn't realize this mediocre roster can't handle him acting like John Fucking Vegas when the game is on the line.

 

A little more Marty Schottenheimer, and less Buddy Ryan with the fucking gameplan, thanks.

Yet, you rely on your 82 million dollar quarterback to make smart decisions in the 4th quarter. Eli proves time and time again that he is not 2011 Eli. It really is OK to admit this and be critical of him. It really doesn't matter that Beckham makes his numbers look pretty. He cannot lead this team to victory consistently. He can't lead a red zone scoring drive, how could he?
