There were comments made during the game by Luis Riddick that were very revealing
He was critical of the coaching on both offense and defense. Riddick criticized the Giants for being predictable and with a lack of creativity
On defense the Giants did not disguise their intentions and Brady knew where to go with the ball pre snap. To paraphrase Riddick, you cannot beat Brady unless you make him uncomfortable and disguise the defense.
By playing the same defense continually the Giants made it easy for Tampa
In the first half the Giants almost exclusively played a (2) high soft zone.
They allowed the underneath short passing without contesting passes in the flats
The tackling was awful and recognition by the defense was lacking.
They never attempted to change up and never attempted apply pressure.
Brady picked apart the defense with ease. It was too easy.
In the second half they went single high but never tried to disguise the coverages.
Riddick stated that Brady is too smart, and he read the coverage pre snap and changed his focus. Brady went to the weakness of the single high by attacking the middle of the field.
What the Giants never did was attempt to use creative rush packages. They rarely tried to blitz and rushed 3 or 4 without any pressure.
The Giants eschewed man coverage
One other note about the pass rush. The Giants have no speed on the DL. There were times where the line did have pressure, but Brady and his 5 flat 40 outran the pressure.
The linebackers cannot tackle, apply pressure or cover. In the run game rather than filling holes and attacking they wait until the play comes to them 4 yards downfield.
On offense Riddick was very critical of the play calling. He commented on some specific plays.
He could not understand the fourth down play call.
It started with personnel, the Giants had their best players on the bench and went to a heavy package.
The personnel package told Tampa what to expect. They knew the play.
It is the same play that the Giants have used many times before in similar situations. The same situation occurs in the Redzone. Garrett reduces his options by calling the same plays. His personnel predict the play call.
Garrett is either conservative or he uses gadget plays there is no middle ground. He does not play to the players strengths. He does not attempt to set plays up or attack downfield.
It was not all bad coaching, Riddick also pointed out bad performance by many players including the putrid play of interior line. He also pointed out how Golladay missed an easy block on a flat pass to Toney.
