5 Keys to Beating the Raiders

Here they are… 5 Keys to beating the woeful Raiders.

1. Blitz, Blitz, and Blitz some more

Let’s face it: JaMarcus Russell is not a good QB. I thought he might break out this year, but I was proven very, very wrong. If the Giants get pressure on him, he’ll have a very difficult time.

2. Run the ball

With Eli Manning’s status in flux, it’s not a bad idea to focus on the run game. The Giants are showing flashes of their usual running game. This could be the game where they break out. Set the tone with Jacobs, finish with Bradshaw.

3. Mario Manningham

Nmandi Asmaough (and no, I don’t think that’s spelled right. Can you blame me?) is one of the best cornerbacks in the league. I’m going to assume he shuts down Steve Smith. This is where Manningham has to step up. If he can limit the mental mistakes, and run good routes, he could have a big game.

4. Offensive Line

This is really only if Carr plays. Carr needs time to throw, and to be successful. If the Giants O-Line can stop Richard Seymour and Greg Ellis, Carr could have a nice game.

5. Don’t Look Ahead

The Giants play the Saints after the Raiders. Would you blame them for looking ahead? Probably not. But that’s when teams get in trouble. The Giants have to focus on the Raiders. If they do that, it should be an easy win.

    good analisis i still think steve smith will get his catches, not 10 but he should still finish with a good game if they dont start rolling coverage to him then that could leave other things open.

    6. If Kevin Boss plays USE HIM
