Thoughts and Musings

Well that’s not how you want to start a season. Pretty, pretty¬†disappointing.

-Big ups to JW for covering the game for me, as I had a prior commitment. I was unable to watch live, but through the miracle of DVR, I was able to watch it.

-So, the Giants looked bad. Really bad. Granted, the defense didn’t look as bad as I thought it would. But, just a sloppy performance.

-This is starting to become a trend, the sloppy play, the lack of focus. I can’t tell you for sure why it is. Is it because Coughlin lost the players? Maybe. But, I still think that players play for themselves, first off. They have too much to lose, if they don’t. Is the overall character of the team just poor? Maybe. But you have so many good guys on the team, hardworking, prideful guys. Doesn’t make sense.

-I don’t know what the causes are, but I do know this: it has to be fixed. And fixed soon.

-The offensive line just didn’t look good. Too much confusion and chaos in the backfield for my liking.

-I love that JPP had two sacks. Like we’ve been saying, he’s a star.

-But, boy, that secondary is bad. Aaron Ross might be the worst starting cornerback in the league. He’s a bust. The two corners picked ahead of him in 2007? Darrelle Revis and Leon Hall. Both would have been good.

-If I were the Giants, I would strongly consider moving Antrel Rolle full time to corner, and putting Deon Grant as the starter at safety. Rolle is a much better option at corner.

-But, I can’t see that happening. The Giants don’t usually make the right personnel moves at the right times.

-I hate to call for someone’s job, but something has to be done about special teams. Tom Quinn isn’t getting it done. A change has to be made. A blocked field goal, poor coverage, it’s just enough.

-Rex Grossman should not have played that well. I’m sorry.

-Dropped passes are really starting to annoy me.

-We need an infusion of depth, and fast.

-Flag football interlude: I joined a flag football league, which had our first game this weekend. I’m the center. Yes, weighing in at 5-10 and 175 pounds, I’m the center. The team we played this weekend had two guys who were 6-4. Both were rushing the passer. I landed on the ground many, many times. But the game was fun. 7-on-7, lots of action, overtime, even though we lost. Great exercise too.

-I really think Eli needs to take more vocal control. The team is just in sputters, and he’s the leader, whether he likes it or not. I know that’s not who he is, but they need a kick in the ass, and it has to be Eli.

-At least the run game should be good. As should Nicks and Manningham.

-We shouldn’t panic yet, but we should be very concerned. The effort, or lack there of, is troublesome. The mistakes are worrisome. But it’s one game. There’s plenty of time. But, a solution soon would be great.
