long story short, giants need to step **** the **** up next week.
Let's relive in.
0-2. Then 6-2. Then 6-3. Then 7-3. Then 7-4. Then 9-4. Then 9-5. Then 10-5. Then 10-6.
0-1. Then 3-1. Then 3-2. Then 6-2. Then 6-3. Then 6-6. Then 7-6. Then 7-7. Then 9-7. Then Superbowl.
Again inconsistent. We have won because we are inconsistent. Because we find a way to get hot at the end. Because we carry the momentum. And in both instances we go from 6-2 to 6-3.
I made a promise that I will not say anything negative about Gilbride for a year.
With that being said.....I LOVE GILBRIDE....I LOVE MY OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR..AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!:mad:AAA AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH! He's a 2 x SB champion OC hes the best.......AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Okay think about it this way.
Let's say during our collapses Eli's TD/INT ratio was -5. Let's also say that he's on pace to be -5 again. That doesn't mean we should overlook his deficiencies just because we were able to get away with it before.
I'm sure coach Coughlin isn't saying anything the lines of "Hey guys we won 2 out of 5 times playing like this it's okay" to his team.
Also, last year we had to win our final 3 games I believe it was. It took a lot of luck for us to even make the playoffs both years.
now that i'm feeling better, i can look forward to next week. :nod:
But in the end of the day they usually pull it off. Would I rather a more consistent team? Yes. But am I losing faith over the team because of this loss? No. Because I'm used to it.
They will do this. I feel like they do so well because they are inconsistent. That they can put up a goose egg and then just come out the next game and play phenomenal. Because they don't let it bother them
^i don't hold it, i just let it go and worry about next week. if i were a psychiatrist, i would tell you to do the same, but i'm not. :laugh2:
Oh, wait... That's you. :rolleyes:
Like I said, Eli said the Skins used some complicated coverages to take away their pass attack....seems like its continued to carry from there to Dallas and now against Pit. I'm a little worried that there's some kind of scheme that's been cracked. Or Gilbride is just getting vanilla again.
My biggest concern ended up being the big problem today; soft defensive coverage against fast WRs.
But let's stay calm here. We've lost 3 games by a score and despite the offense today, overall have looked good and can hang EVEN ON OUR WORST DAY against any team.
As for the offense and the run d...its falling apart and this team needs the bye more than anything. Hope they pull out a win on cincy before that.
Oh and I really hate when people try to put a whole game on one play rather than the full context of the game......but.....that Hosley offsides call was absolutely BRUTAL. So so so so so bad. Turned a tied game at best into them ahead by 4. Not that our offense was doing anything anyway.
