Giants shock many by beating Eagles

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

A lot of Giants fans, myself included, didn’t have high expectations for this game. The Giants have a lot fo big injuries and needed a lot fo help to win last Monday. And the Eagles are supposed to be good.

This Sunday, the Giants were just plain better. They averaged 4 yards per rush and Eli had time to throw. The offensive line did its job. The offense did not turn the ball over.

The defense (thanks Aaron Ross) earned the Giants some turnovers. Despite being on the field for 36 minutes, they held it together.

By the way, as Michael the dog killer Vick whines and cries about the ‘late’ hit from Canty that took him out, why don’t we make some noise about the helmet to helmet hit on Ballard as he was going out of bounds? The Eagles have been a dirty team for a long time – now I have to listen to them whine while they continue to rack up illegal plays that go unpenalized against the Giants?

Giants look weak in loss to Redskins

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

In an emotional game on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on NYC, the Giants looked like the weaker team and came away with the loss they deserved.

The supposed strengths of the team, the offensive and defensive lines, were unable to get the job done. The offensive line struggled in pass protection and the running game. The defensive line couldn’t put enough pressure on Rex Grossman. Man it’s embarrassing to lose to that guy and we really did lose to that guy because the Giants defense was good enough against the run. They obviously missed Juston Tuck and Osi Umenyiora. Although JPP should clearly be the starter – a bright spot for the Giants today performing well against double teams and making plays.

But we can blame the offense more than the defense because they had fewer injuries and played worse. Sucking on third down is bad – that’s when you need your high paid QB to earn his salary. And being unable to convert a 4th and 1 is a sign of weakness.

Finally, how long can our special teams suck before we get a new special teams coach?
