Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re a Giants fan on this day like myself, sorry to hear that. After watching all four quarters of embarrassing football, here’s what can be analyzed. We are not what we thought we were. And we let a lot get off the hook! Point blank Giants fans, we do not have much to look forward to moving forward. This team lacks a lot of things, starting with coaching all the way to the quarterback. The best thing is, it’s about time someone addressed the issues!
Here we go: The number one thing on my list of misfit toys tonight is the offense. Let’s go people. And I know last week Eli Manning passed for a career day and what not, plus we got the win in overtime. Guess what? Last week means nothing. Now we get back to the old ways of calling seven or eight audibles at the line, running the play clock down and not moving the ball. That’s reality. It’s been done time and time again this year and to be quite honest, it’s painful to watch. I mean come on, the second play from scrimmage of the game you burn a timeout because you can’t call a play? Really? You stink. Until you prove you can move an offense with four talented receivers and a punishing back down the field, don’t talk.
Secondly, Kevin Gilbride, please learn what Eli’s tendencies are! I know what they are and I watch you try on TV every single week. You stink! Eli is a quarterback that manages games and if in the no huddle offense performs. Otherwise, stop trying to read the defense via fax that you get to the sideline. You obviously can’t produce even if you have an intermission to figure it out. You’re worthless. Gilbride, you would look so much better if you ran Brandon Jacobs North and South, rather than East to West. Proven fact. That’s how you win with a 6’5” running back. Get a clue!
Finally, on the offensive side. I hate to break it to you Giant fans, but this offensive line may be aging. They suck. Holes are not there and their protection against the blitz is horrible. It’s about time someone starts developing younger talent that can handle the pass rush of a 5’10” defensive lineman like Elvis Dumerville. If you can’t, sorry you don’t belong on the field. As for the run blocking, I would laugh in your face if I were an opposing coach. I would invite you to run as long as my starting defense is on the field. One reason is because you are too predictable. Second, you cannot open holes. To me, that’s a true equation for disaster. Get it together!
Now, on to the defense. I’m not even going to begin to rip you, because you held the opposition to nine points. Three field goals. But guess what, that’s not good enough now days because your offense cannot score. Your offense that takes the field is remotely pitiful. Sorry to you guys because you busted your hump tonight. Even though you have the worst Red Zone rate in the NFL, you held to three field goals. All I can ask of you. Also, thank you Mr. Umenyiora for screaming at your offense on the sideline because it’s what this team needs. If they don’t understand of take offense, they shouldn’t be in the NFL. Like an old friend of the Giants once said, quoted on NFL Network at 11 o’clock on Thanks Giving Day, “I don’t care about the egos of these players. They don’t like it, there’s the door. I want guys who want to be Giants.” Name that coach. Oh here’s a hint,”The Big Tuna.” That’s why he won ball games.
In all reality, Tom Coughlin is losing control of his team as we see it. There’s no more fining guys for being late to a meeting or punishment of conduct detrimental to the team. Last we heard, Osi Umenyiora walked out on practice because he didn’t like what was happening. Too bad so sad. Suck it up, you’re professionals on a team with a whirlwind of talent. You play like a bunch of incoherent kids in a toy store wanting an Easy Bake Oven. Step it up or give it up. It’s your choice. Because from here out it’s win or go home. Trust me, I’ve seen the scenarios.
