Can you really blame the defense?

SHO'NUFF : 11/12/2017 7:41 pm
They had nearly 16 games, a whole season, to fix the offense. For 16 or so games, only the defense held the team together. It was a matter of time before their hearts got cut out. Especially, after McAdoo suspending guys from defense.
Still have to play the games.

Still have to make a stop.
the defense is way worse than the offense  
Vanzetti : 11/12/2017 7:43 pm : link
it's not even close

and the offense is without its best player

The offense is not good. In fact, it is bad. But the defense is the most horrid unit the Giants have ever had. An absolute abomination.
In the past

Giants teams would have taken pride in just playing good defense. Regardless of what the offense did.
they gave up almost 500 yards in total offense to a team  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 11/12/2017 7:44 pm : link
that averages a little over 200 and you think they are blameless? If they hold this team to their average, NY probably wins the game. Not that it f'ing matters at this point.
yes  
yankees78 : 11/12/2017 7:44 pm : link
I blame them
The offense is bad, and the injuries make it worse  
Bockman : 11/12/2017 7:45 pm : link
But the defense is just not even trying. How can JJ, Collins, JPP, Vernon, etc. be completely giving up?
Yes

I can blame the defense for not playing hard  
mfsd : 11/12/2017 7:46 pm : link
spent time focusing on JPP today, looked like he wasn’t even trying
The offense has been a joke  
averagejoe : 11/12/2017 7:46 pm : link
for two seasons. The defense got plenty of credit last season. This season the defense started badly and now they have given no effort at all the last two games. Yes you can blame the defense.
I blame anyone for collecting a paycheck,  
smshmth8690 : 11/12/2017 7:47 pm : link
and not trying to do their job.
Yes, and they suck  
PatersonPlank : 11/12/2017 7:49 pm : link
I never thought I'd see a team give up 200 yards rushing, and 31 points, the the 49ers.
Think of it like a marriage

If you're working two jobs and doing all the chores, and your wife sits on her ass all day watching TV and won't even give it up to you... one day, you're gonna say fuck it...
Yes

Never ever expected this piss poor performance.

Even after the O's injuries, I expected this supposed top D to basically win games by shutting down opposing O's, getting turnovers ad putting the O in decent enough shape to score and manage the game. Ala the 2000 Ravens.

I didn't expect them to be as dominant and great as that Raven D but I did expect them to carry this team like that Raven D with their team.
the 49ers scored 10 points  
bluepepper : 11/12/2017 8:03 pm : link
in each of their last 3 games. If our D does that, we win. Philly, Tampa and SD games all winnable if the defense plays well.
I Took a lot of crap  
turkey : 11/12/2017 8:05 pm : link
At a sports bar today?My only response was that my garbage smells better than the Giants
Gave up 81 points in last two games....Ummmm yes  
Blue21 : 11/12/2017 8:05 pm : link
I can blame the defense.
Whoops make that 82 points...

Good post

I agree. The offense hung the defense out to dry early this year then the suspensions and here we are. It all stinks.
I want to add  
mrvax : 11/12/2017 8:12 pm : link
that saw Snacks playing very hard all game.
He's a keeper.
Yes, this D went from being damn good last season  
montanagiant : 11/12/2017 8:12 pm : link
To horrid this season
Agree as well

Anyone who thought that this O-line was ok and the RB's were ok going forward I don't know what to tell you but it was blatantly obvious last year and they didn't solve the issue
and it shows.

So big deal the offense didn't improve. That's no excuse for the defense to absolutely suck. Only a bunch of pussies would use poor play on offense as an excuse for their own shitty performance. Are you saying the defense is full of pussies?
Yes, Yes, and Yes  
ChathamMark : 11/12/2017 8:20 pm : link
again. Last week, 51 points. This week make the freaking 49ers look like an offensive juggernaut. Lack of effort from many players.
Spags

Spags can't coach
LOL...are you kidding me?  
BillKo : 11/12/2017 8:29 pm : link
I have seen PLENTY of teams with bad offenses and good defenses where the defense continues to fight.

What's last season got to do with this season?

You keep playing hard.

The defense was PATHETIC today, from the start.

They were even given a lead and promptly sucked........
In the 4th quarter  
mrvax : 11/12/2017 8:30 pm : link
I switched over to Cows at Falcons. Yes, the 49er offense looked like the Falcons today.

mitch300 : 11/12/2017 8:37 pm : link
This a serious question? The niners scored 31 points ALL on the defense. No special team points, no pick 6.

bigger babies? the giant's defense or the BBI posters?
The defense has the talent...  
BamaBlue : 11/12/2017 8:42 pm : link
they showed that last year. What the defense lacks is leadership and tenacity. As soon as the going gets tough, these guys quit. It's an embarrassment to great Giants teams to watch Jenkins, JPP and Apple on the field. These guys have made a business decision to give-up... the lack of leadership in the locker room and on the field allows this to happen. The Giants have to clean house. Part of that housecleaning is getting rid of these clowns who gave-up on their teammates.

lol....well written!!!!
last season was last season  
TJ : 11/12/2017 9:14 pm : link
Any player thinking about last season needs to get another job. This season the O is bad and injured but the D is just collecting a check. There are some big money D players who should be ashamed of how they've played.
No, last season is not last season  
SHO'NUFF : 11/12/2017 9:20 pm : link
when the offense keeps hanging you out to dry. It fucking snowballs into the shit show you saw today.
