Jets Beat Giants 17-3 In Battle of New York

The Battle of New York came and went, and it was the Jets who came up on top, beating the Giants 17-3.  After taking a 3-0 lead, the Giants let up two touchdowns and a field goal.

Eli Manning threw for 200 yards, but also 2 interceptions in his last tune up before the regular season.  Brandon Jacobs ran for 51 yards on ten carries, and Hakeem Nicks caught 5 passes for 71 yards.

Justin Tuck left the game with a neck burner. Jerrel Jernigan had a rough night at punt returner. Mathias Kiwanuka left with a groin injury.

Limited analysis because of lack of viewing, but from what we can tell, a lackluster performance from the Giants.

    This does not look like a well coached team. Too many mistakes and questionable play calling. As usual, same Giants. It will take a few games and hopefully No more injuries for this team to jell. I just don’t think this is our year.

    We need a new Offensive coordinator at least, borinunimaginativeve plays and scheme. I don’t like Fewell’s defense and Tom is the oldest NFL HC so you add it up.

    Big Daddy relax lol Defense looked very good except for the pass rush but it just looks like the pass rush is in preseason mode,they aren’t going hard.The offense needs to get away from throwing and get back to running the ball because I think our Oline is back! we can be a dominant run team again but Gilbride needs to stop throwing as much which will also minimize Eli’s mistakes with less attempts.Special teams looks horrendous nuff said.I do agree we need a new head coach at the end of the year.We just need a change and I feel like we’re losing out on the prime of a very talented team.Jeff Fisher and Perry Fewell are on my short list but I would love to see Fewell as head coach and Pepper Johnson as our D-coordinator. Could you imagine how hype the defensive practices would be? lol

    Fewell’s 1st team defense looks good. If everyone can stay healthy, the D will carry the team.

    However… the offense looks like absolute crap. Nicks finally showed up last night, but nothing was a killing blow. Manningham isn’t a number 2 wide receiver… he doesn’t make plays. You need to make plays to be considered at that level, and Mario Manningham hasn’t proven himself to me for anything.

    No Hixon reps w/ the 1st team offense. What are they waiting for??

    Eli needs to step the f*ck up. You wanna be an elite quarterback? Don’t make dumb decisions! Throw the ball away, take a sack… don’t throw a pick by forcing the ball into double coverage! You need to know this by now!

    There is a lot of work to do. Hopefully the running game can move the offense. There is potential there.

    This is preseason…. Just bring on the regular season already!

    Relax! Let’s hold off from derailing the train until the regular season starts! Let’s not forget how great the Lions look every year in the preseason. Remember the year they went 4-0 in the PS and then went 0-16 in the RS? I think the Giants looked pretty crappy in the PS the year they won the SB too.

    Preseason is preseason, let’s wait until week 1 before we lose ourselves!

    The Giants did it again — made you wonder which team was going to show up. Defense played well. Running game was pretty good. Eli once again demonstrated that he is NOT a Top 5 QB because he still makes some of the same bad decisions and bad throws that he made as a rookie. Eli is still just an average QB and he can’t carry this team.

    Can Gilbride go away already?
