The score was 24-17. Time of posession was about the same. Number of first downs was the same. The Giants gained more yards. Each team lost a fumble.
Yet the game wasn’t that close, probably because of the Giants 3 interceptions. Our franchise QB only managed a 47.5 passer rating. Now I’m not saying it’s all on Eli, but come on dude. If you’re a franchise QB taking up a huge chunk of your team’s salary cap you gotta play well every game.
I still appreciate the Super Bowl win, but today’s performance reminded me more of the egg Eli laid against Philly last year in our early exit from the playoffs.
We play Philly next week and it would be nice if Eli contributes something…
But like I said it’s not all on Eli. You’ve got Jacobs averaging almost 6 yards per carry and you only give him the ball 13 times? WTF? And on 3rd and short you go for the bomb? This is becoming pretty predictable actually. Doesn’t it seem like we always throw a hail-mary like pass on 3rd and short?
Manningham hurt with the drops, true. Receivers didn’t get open like they should have, sure. Lots of things went wrong besides Manning but Manning is the one who makes the big bucks, not Manningham. I don’t expect equal contributions from both those guys.
