it is more of a schematic/misunderstanding of the scheme problem. Nobody is setting the edge on defense. All of these runs keep bouncing outside or off of the edge where our guy who is supposed to be setting the edge is flying up-field. Physically I don't really thing we are getting beat up front.
...I see no fire in this team, and I haven't seen it since 2007. By that, I mean a consistent "burn" within to win. They usually come out flat and have to play from behind. We may as well not have any 3rd quarters in our games because they wait until the 4th quarter to "get serious".
I for one can't wait for a total regime change to bring in new blood. That's a hell of a thing to say after only 5 games, but I've felt this way for a few years now and I see NO improvement whatsoever since 2007, despite the draft, new free agents, etc...same old non-burn bunch.
One thing I do agree with him is the inconsistency that surrounds this team and the fact they have a lot of veteran leadership on the team. Having said that, they are not an old team by any means. What I found interesting about his comments, he feels this team should be better then what it shows and in his words, "can't understand the New York Giants". Teams have ups and downs but this team's up and down swings are crazy.
Is just bad. We are getting lit-up by these inept offenses. We have very few three and outs. Even when we have a team pinned deep they get to mid-field and flip field position. No injury excuses we would be just as bad with TT and Goff in there. This looks like the Rust - Read and React defense. Gentlemen its time for us to rebuild, which means the entire staff has to go. It also means we have to get players in here that want to play football, the right way. Eric the homepage was so right with the word "Finese" to describe this team.
As for our offense, why the hell would we run a spread formation so much when it was not working. When we went 2 TEs we were able to run and pass more effectively. This side of the ball is almost as bad as the defense. Let's face it this a 6 - 10 year with TC and staff being asked to leave.
Harrison is just doing what most football "experts" do now.
Got manhandled two straight weeks, and yes i know i would be. They are playing horribly along both lines. Another pull a win out of his ass by Eli would not have changed a thing other then this, people would believe it would get corrected, now they are wondering if it will, and rightfully so. Plus alkl the playoff talk is now becoming a joke, because anyone who knows this game knows you do not win with a bad defense and bad OLine. No matter how good a running back and recievers and QB you have. Bad OLine plus bad defense equals bad team. Unless you have Peyton Manning.
especially when there have been large changes to their lineups (injury). Winning ugly builds character and team "spirit." If Cruz doesn't slip and the next play is a TD, all we are bitching about is the poor line play and crappy running.
What leadership does Rodney want; Ra-ra leadership hasn't been part of the Giants since LT? Tuck is quiet and BJac while wild, is the 2nd string RB. Eli is steady. Rolle gets lambasted here when he speaks up.....
