Thanks guys, you really know how to perform in the spotlight. Just like every other national broadcast of our team this year, when the lights are on, you guys scuttle for the shadows like cockroaches. It makes me embarassed to be a fan to watch you get abused like that. I know that there must be a few on the sidelines who felt like complete fakes for earning a game check based on their performance tonight. Congrats to the Giants for going out and executing their game plan so effectively.
A couple of small notes and I will return to licking my wounds of fandom like many of you.....
It's obvious that the D knew when Eli was going to audible, but I'm guessing their execution of the two deep zone needs some work since Eli had no difficulty in finding guys wide open. Consider that something to put on your "to do" list Mr. Blache. If they had burned ya three times with the lack of execution of that defense, why not go ahead and rush the guy? after all, he's picking apart your zone as is.
Not gonna cry about the officiating much, but how many times are the Gints linemen going to be able to tee off on our QB after he released the ball? I counted at least three outright tackles that took place a step and a half after the ball was out. No flags. The intentional grounding call was laughable since the G'Man linebacker knocked the RB off his feet as Jason was releasing the ball. Then there was the Jacobs/Hall debacle. I love that Albert came to the defense of his teammates, in no way can I understand how Haynesworth is the only guy who gets a flag. I'm not saying that Albert shouldn't have been flagged, but for crying out loud, what were the refs watching? But that's just quibbling, the refs did NOT lose this game for us.
saw nice efforts tonight by Davis and Fletcher and even Ganther, Jason did the best he could for the most part, but that pick six was certainly painful.
I'm guessing that after tonights performance, Mr. Allen has seen that he should have a free hand to makeover the team as he sees fit. If those guys couldn't play any harder for their jobs than they did tonight, then I have no issues with whomever gets asked to turn his playbook into the turk. Do what needs doing Mr. Allen.
