Brandon Marshall

When we picked him up in the off-season, he was supposed to be a difference maker in the red zone. At 6'5", and against inexperienced, much shorter corners, the jump ball didn't go to him once. What does it take, like 1.5 seconds for Eli to get the toss into the corner of the end zone???? WTF, Ben!!!!!!

We were in the red zone for what, 3 plays? One was a run, one was a jailbreak where Eli got sacked instantly and the other was a 3rd and goal from the 12 where they dropped back 7 DBs.
We have to get to the red zone first.

in the immortal words of AR...RELAX! It was just one game. Hopefully Monday night we see much better production out of the offense to include the benefits of big target in the red zone.
The line can't block!

Eli would have had engram on a double move for a sure fire TD but the right side of the line collapsed. He had Marshall on the fade but didn't even have time to read the safety. Fans needs to actually look what's going on rather than a players height. The line was shit. That game was not on Eli.

the Giants lived in the redzone on Sunday and refused to throw to Marshall.

the one play where he is standing wide open on the 45 is eye opening, i dont know why eli did not pull the trigger...

at least this proves he can still get open...

this also proves why having beckham back helps so much
I look to Eli to correct this aspect against the Lions

Eli will get in the film room and see his mistakes.
He thought he was

going to be the missing link + now hes probably realizing how fucked we are
The fact that Marshall  
Doomster : 9/13/2017 10:27 am : link
was that wide open, wasn't because he put on a great move, or used his great speed to get separation, it was a busted play by the Dallas defense....he was wide open...Eli was on the run.....threw across his body.....and led him on the throw instead of throwing it right at him....Marshall stood there flat footed....

The other third down pass to Marshall had no chance because he badly threw it behind him....

And the the third pass play I remember was a long overthrown pass where Marshall was covered.....

Marshall's only catch was in garbage time....

Did it look like there was any chemistry between Eli and Marshall? Did it look like Marshall tried to elevate his game, with OBj not out there? Or did it look like a receiver that wanted to be a on a team with a #1 receiver, so that he didn't have to be #1? Or did he look like the player, his former team mates talked about?

One game does not answer those questions.....maybe he just needs more reps with Eli....

I was surprise on the second and goal play, that even though Marshall was covered, with the CB facing Eli, he did not fade it to Marshall when he had the chance, and instead looked elsewhere and it was too late because the DL got to him.....What does that tell you? We have seen him throw to SS and OBj on fade routes when covered, yet he didn't pull the trigger with Marshall, why?
A lot of people blaming Marshall,

but he can't throw the ball to himself. Eli didn't even look his way all game. He was too busy being scared of the rush and where it was coming from. Eli looks for 1 guy and then panics. Just a piss poor effort by Eli and the OL.

Doom - my number one question from that game.

That was a big possession...we used practically half the third quarter and only got three points. That was a good trade off for Dallas.

Why Eli didn't throw it, I have no idea. The fact they haven't "worked together" long enough.....doesn't make any sense. It's one on one coverage with a size receiver, you throw it.

Something wasn't right.
wasn't just on BM

Eli missed opportunities and BM needs to get into a rhythm with him.
