Giants miss the playoffs again

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Sun Jan 02, 2011 8:25 pm

The Giants did what they had to against the redskins but once again missed the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
The defense stepped up but the offense looked flat.
What say you? Evil or Very Mad

The offense was the big problem imho

Hagan was ok, but frankly I expect more from Bradshaw, Jacobs, Boss and Manningham

The defense stepped up for the most part.

I think Kenny Phillips became exposed though. He's just not that great at blitzing or being in the right position it seems. Maybe he was mostly draft hype.

Terrel Thomas has done a fine job most of the year. He plays almost like a safety but from the corner instead.

Rolle is a stud. Good going Reese

Osi finally came out of his shell today. He made the big plays when they counted the most. Unfortunately he only seems to play a good game every now and again and then too many so-so games in between.

Eli did fine for what he had to work with.

Losing Richie Seubert early sucked but Kevin Boothe filled in quite well. Boothe played center better than Ohara would have this week or last.

Nice job of Andrews toughing it out for the team. Announcers mentioned that he had injections right before the game. I can relate to what that must of felt like. Not easy.

Running game left a lot to be desired. Not sure if it was a product of no blocking or individual effort. Need to re-watch it.

It was a tough way to end the season that shouldn't have come down this far.
All in all, I hope it makes the Giants a better team next year.
The team struggled the last three games but I don't believe they quit on themselves or coaches.
Simply put, they underachieved. They have talent but are not as good as they were portrayed by media and fans at some times throughout the year.

better luck next year fellas!

I think this team is very close, it just needs to address a few issues and positions.

I still have a bad taste in my mouth about the Eagles game, there is no way we should have lost.

We need to improve our 4th quarter play, it has been ordinary.

Giants miss playoffs ( a shame for young punter)

Post  face on Sun Jan 02, 2011 10:44 pm

It is sad that the Giants did not make the play offs. This would have been a great venue for the young Matt Dodge to really shine and exhibit his talents. We can only hope and pray that another team doesnot scoop him up next season. Matt Dodge has displayed himself as the centerpiece for the Giants.
