I agree. Nothing came easy for Eli tonight.

The right side of the OL is a disaster. They got abused all night long and there are no stars on that defense. If they don't figure it out this offense is gonna be in trouble all year long -- especially w all of the top end pass rushers on their schedule.

On a positive note, I thought Flowers played well.
Seriously this offense does not fit Eli's Game period.  
Bluesbreaker : 9/11/2017 12:16 am : link
Give him a semblance of a pocket and a legitimate RB that
is respected . With these receivers he would have hung
35 on these guys . Rarely does he have a chance to step up because the middle is constantly pushed back and makes it easy pickens for DE's .
He is a drop back QB that can throw the deep ball and can read any defense sure they all get suckered once in a while but this dink and dunk crap doesn't suit him he is not and never has been a great touch passer . Everytime we do get a completion Eli has to bird dog it and the receivers are getting pummeled . Our bread and butter is a three yard telegraphed dump off when you need 8 yards or more how many times are the passes short of the sticks .For Marshal not to get one throw the entire first half is mind boggling .

I think he looked good. Would have liked to see LC make a big play, but I think the Defense is fine. Offense has to get going big time...Offensive staff not very encouraging. Perhaps Mac should give up play calling, but will he?

I disagree with this. Eli has shown throughout his career that even with a middling Oline he can win a super bowl. He's shown with a bad Oline he gets jittery and loses his rhythm. This isn't only true for Eli, plenty of QBs can't succeed with a bad Oline or with consistent pressure with no blitz. (This is how we beat Brady in 2 super bowls) Our Oline was porous tonight. Eli did have a few goods moves in pressure, but he was under pressure the whole day. People including myself have been writing for years that we need to fix the Oline particularly because of the QB Eli is. It is easy as a fan to be frustrated with this. The Oline was the only thing holding us back last season and we did literally nothing to fix it.
Eli is probably the best play action QB in the league...

Eli has produced with OLs as bad as this one has been the last calendar year before, not just middling. It's almost shortchanging him to not give him that credit.

The OL sucks, no excuses whatsoever for them or for the team which has been failing on rebuilding it since before the last SB, but he's also just not the same QB he used to be right now. His internal clock seems completely (and unfortunately likely irreparably, IMO) broken and he doesn't have quite the same tools he did physically either (though that's much less the problem, to my eye). As he's played lately, he's -- along with the dreadful OL and McAdoo being in over his head with having to be OC and HC -- part of the problem. Good QBs don't need to have things perfect around them to not be this flat out awful, they cover for some flaws at least and not put all of them on blast like he's doing -- we should all know that, because he's been that good QB before, that was that way.

joe48 : 9/11/2017 4:35 am : link
I have been following the commentary on the blog all year and am surprised that so many of the "experts" were so high on this team when our main issues still exist. Lack of talent on the OL, RB and an aging immobile QB who does not want to take a hit. Throw in the fact that McAdoo did not have his team ready for the biggest game of the season and had his usual lack luster game plan and that is why I packed it in at halftime which I can't remember doing ever. By the way OBJ's new contract could reach $20M per year.

SeanLandeta : 9/11/2017 6:14 am : link
The OL stinks, we know it - everyone knows it. The NFL is about talent and strategy. When the talent is lacking, the strategy needs to make up for it and our offense lacks both. I'm putting this on Coach Mac though - in the first half (before my seeing red fully took over) I saw one play that was different from what we ran last year. One new play in the first half isn't going to cut it.

Also, there are creative ways to get people open on short routes that have a chance at picking up more YAC, but we run none of them. A slew of other teams implement better short passing games than our generic dump offs (look no further than Dallas, which had some nice creative plays). If this is the offense after an entire offseason of planning and video on Dallas then we're in for a long year. Having OBJ helps, but we'll not be cracking the 20 point mark unless the defense chips in with 7 of their own.

Its the way we lost that has so many worried. The team did not address its most glaring need following last year, and at least for the first game, it cost them the game. The only good from the OL last night was that for one game, Flowers showed improvement. Its a long season, we will see if he builds on it or goes back to his bad technique ways; but the right side of the line was ugly.

This is so true. NYG not as bad as they played. It's one game. There is talent on this team. However, we will be better off with Jones and Fluker on the right side of the OL over Jerry and Hart.

I agree with some of this. Not a knock on Eli but we have the wrong QB for this OL... or vice versa. We cannot have an immobile QB with an OL this poor. What you saw last night is what you will get. My preference is to replace a few parts on the OL because it is a lot easier to fix that than find a quality QB.

AcidTest : 9/11/2017 8:55 am : link
was simply an atrocious performance by the offense. Two first downs in the entire first half IIRC, and nothing even resembling a scoring opportunity. And that was against a suspect Dallas defense. What will happen against Denver and Seattle?

This game was over in the first quarter. It appears that preseason may well have accurately predicted how the offense will play during the regular season. That would mean a repeat of last season, where the offense moved in micrometers, and we needed 10 plays to go 50 yards.

The OL is again the weak unit. Dallas got pressure with just four or five, and dropped six or seven into coverage. That allowed them as Dungy said to “squeeze” towards the LOS, and cut off most throwing lanes and windows. Eli had plenty of time to throw on a number of plays, but everyone was double covered. Shepard was knocked around like a pinball. Eli thus had a lot of short completions for very few yards. The play to Engram up the sideline looked like a blown coverage.

Hart and Jerry were awful. Richburg was again moved back into Eli. Our OL are heavy footed and slow. They lumber. Hart was repeatedly beaten around the edge, forcing Eli to step up into the pocket. Eli’s immobility simply exacerbates this problem.

Perkins was somewhat indecisive, but there was nowhere to run. Darkwa’s 10 yard run was our longest of the night.

Eli missed open receivers, especially Marshall in the flat for what would have been an easy first down. He also looked indecisive and unsure, probably because he understandably didn’t trust his protection, especially around the edge.

McAdoo made no in game adjustments, and I wonder if he will just off one game, no matter how badly the OL played. But I would bench Jerry for Jones. I’d also have no hesitation about removing Hart if he continues to struggle. I’d try Wheeler. He lacks Hart’s mass, but appears to have quicker feet.

Something has to be done.

Secondly, Is OBJ sitting out because he wants a sizeable extension with guaranteed money now? Was his injury that serious? Look at Cruz, and Bridgewater. If he suffers a major injury now, he will never see the big contract. Just throwing out ideas here....I don't like thinking like this but I don't like discounting any possibility.

OBj wants a contract.....could this be leverage?

So do you think OBj is going to rush back BEFORE he is ready? I seriously doubt it! And every week this offense performs like this, it gives him more leverage....and personally, I don't want him being forced to play before he is ready, because then the rest of the season can look like last night.

If this guy can't play, why in the world is that ankle not immobilized and given time to heal? Or will this be like a Cruz situation? Next week comes....and then next week.....and then next week...

YEARS. Despite it being common knowledge games are won in the trenches we have yet to treat this as a critical situation. Contrarian assholes can defend this but the fact of the matter is this hasn't been a problem for one or two or three years it's been this way for SIX OR SEVEN. Think of what we've done to address this problem in that amount of time, free agents, picks, coaches, and tell me it's been handled appropriately especially given the ol's importance to our success. You can whiff on picks and signings but six years is enough time to show some improvement. We are arguably worse.

On continuity with substandard starters along the OL is an awful strategy. Unfortunately that's the route this FO decided to go. They're essentially allowing the OL to torpedo yet another season with an otherwise solid roster. They all had better get used to the daily inquisitions from the media regarding that unit. McAdoo already got upset about the barrage last night and it's only week 1. Chances are, as we get to more accomplished front 7's, it'll get worse.

mavric : 9/11/2017 10:48 am : link
and off their game - seemingly unprepared. They showed some moxie in the second half, but it was too little too late.

No reason to panic though. Hopefully it shoved a truth into the face of McAdoo that trying to run a predictable conservative offense over and over and over is a recipe for losing and that it's time to get creative and take advantage of the team's offensive tools. In the second half, he brought in some variations and took chances and it paid off - not enough to win, but at least move the ball down the field and convert 3rd downs. I never understood why Marshall was almost completely ignored for the entire game. He's a weapon and needs to be used for something other than a decoy.

The list is getting longer

The Giants have the talent to succeed if they had decent coaching on the offensive side of the ball. Zone blocking in the run game would help out the offense immediately. With a defense this good, how in the hell did no one in the Giants not see just how bad the run blocking was in practice and adjust the blocking schemes?

Run blocking always helps in pass blocking by keeping the defense honest. There were so many times had we run a draw play, it could have changed the game. Gone are the days when Gilbride would call a draw with the slowest player on the field on 3rd and 20.... Now we get a 5 yard completion.

Easy to figure out our offense and I'm far from being a D coordinator. Run for 2 yards. Throw for 3-5 yards. Incomplete or sack or 3 yard completion = punt.
