Thoughts and Musings

Hey, it sure is nice to be tweeting after a win!

-That wasn’t a pretty game. But it’s a win. Giants didn’t look cohesive on offense. Manning has not looked good. The running game looked good, but they didn’t really use it. Manningham and Hixon injuries are worrisome, obviously. It explains some of the lack of passing, but the lack of 3rd down conversions isn’t good.

-I don’t get Aaron Ross. He has all the talent. He’s just awful. Benched for a bit. He’s getting burned. There’s no real solution, not at least until Prince Amukamara comes back, and he’s not a given. It’s really concerning.

-Loved what the front 7 did, especially the linebackers. I thought Jones and Boley were terrific. Boley had the fumble recovery, and made plays in the backfield. Jones really snuffed out the run. Good stuff.

-I thought the line was great as well. Tuck played well. I thought Canty and Bernard were terrific.

-It’s really the secondary that’s awful. A good passing attack is going to eat it alive.

-I like when a punter comes in and we don’t have to worry.

-I loved the opening play, play action, bootleg, find a wide open Manningham. More of that, please.

-Congrats to Victor Cruz on his first NFL Catch.

-I loved when the Giants came out in a sort of diamond formation, with Pascoe and Hynoski opposite each other. Worked great for the run.

-Like I’ve been saying, more innovation on offense.

-Antrel Rolle has been very quiet.

-Liked what Jaicquan Williams did. Good little player

-I think Kiwanuka needs to play on the line, for depth, and unless Williams can play full time, or Herzlich, not sure that it’s going to happen.

-I think Sam Bradford is going to be a star and soon. Needs weapons.

-Flag football interlude: We got crushed. Demolished. Last I checked, it was 35-0. It might have ended 45-0. We started the game off taking a safety. All downhill from there. All the guys were former D3 football and basketball players. I was center. I had no chance of blocking these guys. But it was fun.

-I really think Eli needs to step up his game. He’s been terribly inconsistent so far. No explosiveness.

-Sure, he’s not getting great protection, and he has guys missing. But when he has guys open, he overthrows them. It’s an issue. He shows moments of being Eli ,and then moments of being awful.

-Stick to the run! It works. Don’t abandon it.

-Jacobs has looked great. If it’s working, stick with it.

-I think the Giants need to stay in man coverage as much as possible. They don’t have the chops to play zone.

-Chris Snee is a heckuva pull blocker.

-Next week is a big test, Vick or no Vick. I’m curious to see how the secondary does. Could be rough.
