Giants Sloppy, Lose To Titans 29-10

Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. That’s the only way to describe the Giants’ 29-10 loss to the Titans. Interceptions, penalties and just dumb plays made a winnable game turn into an ugly loss.

The Titans started off the scoring in the first after a Rob Bironas 48 yard field goal. After a quiet rest of the first, the Titans opened up the scoring in the 2nd off a 1 yard run by Chris Johnson.

The Giants added a score on a 50 yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes. A long drive at the end of the half led to a 10 yard run TD run by Ahmad Bradshaw to tie things up at 10.

The 2nd half started with a bang for the Titans, after a personal foul penalty on Ahmad Bradshaw led to a safety. A few minutes later, Kenny Britt caught a 13 yard pass from Vince Young to make the score 19-10.

In the fourth, the Titans added a 23 yard field goal to make it 22-10. To put the icing on the cake, Chris Johnson added an eight yard run late in the game.

The offense moved the ball well. But penalties ( like the one that led to the safety) just killed this team. You’re bound to have some penalties, but just way too many. It ended up costing them the game. The Giants looked good. But everytime they got a drive going, an offsides or something pushed them back. That was the day for the Giants. In particular, Kareem McKenzie had two personal foul penalties, one towards the end of the game that cost a potential touchdown drive. The lack of discipline was inexcusable.

Defense was also good, but once again, penalties killed them. Pass interferences, whatever the case may be, you can’t give teams second chances. They played much better than last week. Chris Johnson wasn’t his usual self. Passing game wasn’t able to do much. But giving teams second chances is going to come back to hurt you.

The Giants played well. They did. But they mistakes and penalties just killed them. Missed field goals. Turnovers. It was too much. And it cost them the game. Enough is enough. Enough with the mistakes. Enough with the penalties. It’s becoming pathetic. It’s making a good team look awful. And it may cost Tom Coughlin his job.

    not so sure i would say the played well. they racked up plenty of yards in the air and moved the ball quite easily. but when you keep shooting yourself in the proverbial foot due to penalties, turnovers, etc, i cannot call that playing well.

    without begruding their win and sounding bitter, tennessee were no great shakes – they let us move the ball and waited for us to self-destruct. simple.

    They SUCK!

    I don’t see how you can say that a team that showed so little discipline, intelligence and passion “played well”.

    Sloppy sounds about right. This team can’t seem to get over the hump. Coughlin made big
    mistake by letting kicker try from over 50Yds.
    Also no real presure when Young was throwing
    those completions,and the TD. Diehl and Mckenzie sure looked slow and stupid, not a good combo. Rolle needs to just play, cut the
    motivational BS.

    How can it be justly said “they played well”. By what measure? the very best that can be said is they at times did some things well. But a loss is generally a sum-total of all things done, with the balance being that they were done poorly. Please don’t say they played well. That is an insult. And even more, the truth is that since week 6 against the saints 2009, they haven’t played well enough to beat a really good team even once. (the cowboys were not yet that during the first week or 2 of december).

    It is surely time for change because the players’ responses to the media — delivered with that sickening monotone delivery — show that here in week 3 of 2010 they are already resigned to the 2009 type mediocrity, so the season may very soon end up in the trash-heap if nothing’s done.
