Giants-Eagles Game in review

Post  Pizan on Mon Nov 22, 2010 11:06 pm

Positives:

I was pleased with our D. I thought we did a good job vs Vick. Boley blew containment on the TD run and we had a blown coverage assignment another time but overall we played well. Although I thought we could have been a lot more physical against the receivers.

Negatives:

Our Oline got no push vs the run.

Bradshaw continues his costly fumbles.

We pay Eli 100 million to take a nose dive and fumble the game away. . .

Dang man, this game was a heartbreaker.

The score should have been much worse but yes all things considered, the defense did do ok against Vick and his receivers,

Special teams was terrible.
Blackmon did not look right after that first big hit he took. The dumb-ass should have never tried to field the ball anyways. I realize he was just trying to make something positive happen but rarely does it ever work out in your favor.

I agree about the o-line sort of, but Gilbride should have at least called a running play to the left side at some point. Every run play was so predictable it wasn't even funny.

Oh yeah, and your spot on about the Manning slide. That was the ugliest slide that I've ever seen. Mad

what really upsets me is why can't our special teams guys consistently make blocks?

I thought our Oline was ok considering all the shuffling, it could easily have been much worse.

This is a game we should have won, we give up too many turnovers.

I don't know but the special teams hasn't really done well since the elimination of the wedge block.
Is it individual effort, coaching, or both?

IMO, its the players. Some of the schemes they are trying to execute seem to be well thought out. For example the blocked kick before half. Its just getting the players interested in playing specials. Thats the hardest part. Especially considering we suck at LB. And thats where most of the time your best meat/speed ratio for special teams comes from.

Probably right Vin.
It saddens me sometimes to watch interviews of the old school Giants players talking about what it takes to win.

I watched Jessie Armstead talking to Bob Papa about how to make a team win this past sunday and just wish more players would take more interest in Giants pride.
