Jason Witten we never did stop him

Elite Mobster #32 : 5/3/2018 7:35 pm
Jason Witten's announcements and the send off he had was genuine. I believe even Jerry Jones had crocodile tears of appreciation of his services. Witten was a pain in the ass I never felt satisfied the way we stopped him. We never did! He always made us regret when we missed a coverage against him.

Seeing Witten's sendoff amoungst coaches and players were lined up to wish him well.

I thought of Eli.
Eli must get the admiration back, to being an Elite player.
Right now I have the memories of the Super Bowl, but he has to get back to being a ligitimate force.

Right now its the loyalty you show to a Godfather with respect due, because he is a family member who gave us Super Bowl victories.
Football is about the last play. Guys of Eli's era are starting to retire, Eli has to do it this year !
Fantastic thread

Giants Never Handled Witten  
TheVette : 5/3/2018 9:12 pm : link
...couldn't handle him almost as bad as they struggled with Robert Delfino on the Rams (yea, who?) back in the 80's.

Madden was great on those games - always kept asking why during a Giants/Rams game - "why can't the Giants stop the screen pass to Robert Delfino?" It's nit like he was Marcus Allen, Walter Payton, or Roger Craig?

Ive strangely come to enjoy this guys posts. Ligitimate Force!
Jason Witten was a good player and probable HOFer  
the mike : 5/3/2018 9:59 pm : link
But Jason Witten was never on a team that even won a divisional playoff game! Eli is 4-0 in NFC Championship and Super Bowl games. Who cares if Witten caught some passes that beat us in some regular season games?

If Eli does nothing more this year than sneeze when he takes the field in September, he will have done more to earn the respect of this fan base than anything ever done by every active Dallas Cowboy combined!

Haha, I was thinking the same thing
There haven't been many tight ends  
joeinpa : 5/4/2018 6:38 am : link
The Giants have been able to stop lately
Witten was awesome...  
EricJ : 5/4/2018 6:53 am : link
and one of those competitors that you absolutely have to respect. I wish the Giants had drafted him.
Great player  
Beer Man : 5/4/2018 7:26 am : link
Glad the Giants don't have to deal with him anymore
Hopefully  
Beer Man : 5/4/2018 7:29 am : link
Engram becomes just as big in the Giants attack and does to the Cowgirls what Witten did to the Giants over the years
I like Mobbies threads  
idiotsavant : 5/4/2018 7:36 am : link
He just needs to get a more humble or mature handle and things will settle down.

The LBs have been so bad in coverage  
totowa_gman : 5/4/2018 8:42 am : link
in the past decade. Forget about Witten we couldn't stop anything over the middle.
Crocodile tears??  
Jimmy Googs : 5/4/2018 8:44 am : link
um...good post.
Prediction  
JohnG in Albany : 5/4/2018 8:50 am : link
Witten will catch 12 passes against the Giants this year.
Most effective TE historically vs Giants EASILY...  
x meadowlander : 5/4/2018 9:08 am : link
...thankfully, Giants won most of the important games he played against us.

Eli's autograph, a permanent stain in the Dallas Stadium visitors locker room. :D
So sad,  
oldog : 5/4/2018 9:31 am : link
but so true.
In the decade plus  
RobCrossRiver56 : 5/4/2018 9:54 am : link
That Witten torched us, you would think somewhere along the line Reese would draft a player or bring one in(LB)ha, ha, ha, that could stay with him.

It's our own fault
he pushed off half the time  
BluesCruise : 5/4/2018 12:29 pm : link
the other half he was covered by Pierce, the worst MLB pass defender in NFL history

just kidding

He was good, very good....he and Romo could complete a 1st down on us anytime they chose to

glad to hear he retired

Parcells: Jason Witten what 'football is supposed to be'

UH,

exactly which TE's did the Giants stop?

Who was the Giant LBer who could cover anyone?
The Tight End  
lax counsel : 5/4/2018 1:22 pm : link
Evolution over the past decade or so in the league has really been something to behold. Tight ends used to just be more atheletic o linemen that could catch the occasional pass. Since really the Tony Gonzalez days, the position have evolved more toward a bigger wide receiver. This has created match up problems for most NFL teams, including the Giants- although some were better at defending them than others. This is really the resins teams started incorporating safeties more into line backer style roles, because traditional line backers had so much difficulty covering that position.

Witten was obviously a match up night mare for most teams. Really outside of Shockey (and Bennett for a year), the Reese Giants seemed to use the tight end position as much more traditional blocking guys than some of them more innovative NFL teams. It would have been nice to see Eli in his prime paired with Engram, but at the very least, the Giants now seem to realize the value of this position in today's NFL.
If it was 3rd and 5  
Dnew15 : 5/4/2018 2:35 pm : link
I would be screaming at the TV for the Giants to put every LB and S on the field on Witten. They might have..but he converted, what felt like, everytime.
Good player - I guess the other teams have them too.
Was hoping Dallas would get Dallas Goedert  
idiotsavant : 5/4/2018 2:38 pm : link
But the iggles pounced on him.

Giants  
bc4life : 5/5/2018 6:07 am : link
had company, very few teams stopped him
Whenever Dallas had a 3 & 5...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 5/5/2018 8:32 am : link
Witten would get 6 yards or something. It was unreal. The man seemingly made every catch in big situations against us. I, for one, am happy to see him retire.

It seems that most fans don't realize that Witten's per-game averages against the Giants are virtually identical to his overall career per-game averages against the entire league. He didn't save his best work for the Giants; he was incredibly consistent in general.
Witten's  
crick n NC : 5/5/2018 10:15 am : link
Career td numbers against the Giants are way ahead of any other team, which is quite relevant.
