“It wasn’t good,” Kubiak said of the Texans defense. “We’ll have to take a hard look at what we’re doing, how we’re doing it and who we’re doing it with. We’ve got a long way to go.”
Let’s hope that the Giants are taking an equally hard look at their defense. I know the Seahawks are better than the Redskins, but giving up 35 points in the first half is inexcusable.
Of course the NFL is a strange place. The Giants end up scoring 27 unaswered points in the 4th. They almost made a game out of it.
“Sometimes you’re going to bend. And the important thing is not to break,” Jets coach Eric Mangini said of his defense. “Obviously, we want to improve on the bending part.” The Giants need to bend and break less in the first half. It looked (same as last week actually) like no one wanted to play football until after the half.
Clearly the Giants can play. Clearly we do have some talent. That’s not enough unless we can solve the riddle of the past two weeks and put together 4 quarters of good football. At least Tom Coughlin is angry now during his press conference. He has to make some changes.
