So what changed ?

56GiantsUK : 9/18/2023 5:22 am
From watching the worst most embarrassing 6 quarters I can remember seeing, Half time something changed ?

Did Daboll tell Kafka his job was on the line ? Did he tell him to just F'ing change his playcalling...
Did Daboll tell wink to change things, just f'ing do something different !

Did Daboll, take over the play calling as some have alluded to ?

Did fortune stopping toying with the Giants and decided to give them a break in the second half ?

Things that took place in that half time period we might ever learn about, but something definitely changed in that period that brought about changes on the field.

A long road still ahead, but it might have saved a few television from having a foot put through it last night...

I don't have any data to back this up

but Jones looked more decisive throwing the ball in the second half. I don't know if the play calls and route combos were simplified but he seemed to make decisions faster and get the ball out faster. Whatever it was, they should keep doing it.
It looked like they just opened up the offense

and started chucking the ball downfield.

As far as the defense on the last three drives, it seems that the Cardinals went conservative and the Giants committed to the run blitz. In this regard, their coaches let the Cardinals players down.
Everything changed

The offensive line gave Jones time to throw. Jones looked more decisive and determined. Barkley broke a tackle for a change. The defense made a freakin' stop! Even though they didn't get any sacks, they got pressure on Dobbs. They finally started tackling Connor.

Why it changed? Don't know, but they had better come out with the same fire on Thursday.
I left a bar full of south Jersey Eagle fan turds at halftime

And drove north a bit and hit a bar full of Giants fans for the second half.

They had Hayatt

open deep in the second quarter and in the 3rd he got us going. We need more Hayatt on the field to open up the passing game kid is a stud. Also the trenches finally woke up.
They opened up the offense a little bit

it looked like and Jones got into a groove.

With the Hyatt play, once a team hits a deep ball like that, the defense starts to creep back a little bit especially when Hyatt was on the field and that opened the middle of the field for Waller and the rest of the receivers
My theory

That deep shot to Hyatt put the D on notice. The Ss had to back up a bit. Getting beat deep is the easiest way to give up a lead. That did exactly what it was supposed to do and opened more space for Waller and the in between routes. Then with SB they have to honor the play fake so we executed the O as designed.

And the score also relieved some pressure and gave us some juice. We expected so much better in every aspect.

Part of it was probably the Cardinals

Who have blown leads in two straight weeks.
Must stop the run this week.....  
Simms11 : 9/18/2023 8:57 am : link
At all costs. Make Purdy beat you through the air. We have been terrible so far stopping the run. If this team wants any chance at all, that's what they must do.

On the other side, they need yo establish the run and short passing game. Keep the game close. Take your shots when they present themselves.
