Giants dinged up but did what they had to

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Tue Dec 14, 2010 11:06 am

Just when you think the Giants are getting healthy, they suffer some more set-backs.
Tuck(bruised ribs), S. Smith(hamstring), Manningham(hip), Sintim(ACL). Snee, Nicks, and Canty also got dinged during the game but should be fine going forward.

Missed the first quarter due to nfl televised airing issues but found the game on the web to watch.
It proves to be that missing the first quarter was probably a good thing.

Game balls should go to the defense and running game which really stepped up once again.

Eli Manning struggled bad in the beginning but I'm not getting too down on him right now.
There's not many qb's that will go out and give you a big performance with the year Eli's injury proned receivers have had. Just imagine if Nicks and Smith could stay healthy all season long.

Pierre-Paul is continuing to show his athleticism and dominance every week.

Tuck deserves a lot of credit for coming back onto the field and playing hard after he got banged up in the ribs. That showed Giants leadership and old-school performance right there.

BJ and AB are a force back there right now. There tough to bring down and Jacobs is showing some nice runs by not getting tripped upon first contact.

Giants O-line is playing light out.
Richie Seubert and Kevin Boothe deserve some praise for their performances this year. New position/new starter that can anchor the line and have only given up 1 sack in 6 games.

How about coaching? The Giants staff plugging in the holes and coaching up the players to be ready on gameday.

I'll throw Matt Dodge in there also. He had a really good game. Nice punts down near the endzone. He's starting to find his consistency, and in a good way this time.

I don't see the injuries as much of an issue.

Sintim's is the only serious one and he is a backup. Injuries are part of the game and the Giants have been good at having the next guy ready to step up. We are in much better injury shape than many teams and unlike many teams we are getting healthier down the stretch.

Only just found out about that. It does hurt, but not that much more than Kiwanuka.

Gilbride will just have to adjust things a little, which he can do.

The running game will play a bigger role, but really the key will be Eli's play stepping up.

With Nicks, Manningham, Hagan, Boss, Beckum, maybe Thomas and the RBs there are enough weapons.

We are still in pretty good shape.

This week's game could be critical though
