Halftime Report: 14-14

The Giants started off the game with QB Eli Manning hitting WR Hakeem Nicks for a long, deep 68-yard catch. The result of the drive was QB Eli Manning scrambling for a two-yard touchdown run. The Redskins countered with a Tim Hightower run, which, for those who asked, should have had a holding call on that play. Manning was able to hit WR Mario Manningham for two long passes, and WR Hakeem Nicks on two quick passes. Brandon Jacobs had a three solid runs along with a great block which led to a RB Ahmad Bradshaw touchdow. The Giants secondary has been shaky, though. CB Aaron Ross got burned on deep pass to Jabar Gaffney. He then lost sight of the ball and WR Anthony Armstrong snatched the ball for a 6-yard scoring pass.

Hot Players:

Brandon Jacobs/Ahmad Bradshaw – The tandem has done a solid job. They’ve accounted for 61 yards on 12 carries.

Hakeem Nicks – Is it time for Nicks to blossom into the star he can be? I think so. Nicks has 4 catches for 97 yards. Manning to Nicks has been lethal thus far when they connect.

Michael Boley – Boley has three tackles, but has kept containtment on two plays forcing errant Grossman throws. He’s been solid.

Cold Players:

Punt Coverage Unit – They made a nice play on the first Steve Weatherford punt, but lost coverage and containment again which led to a long 24-yard return.

Aaron Ross – Got turuned around and let up a deep ball, then lost track and let up a touchdown.

    we are screwed bug time should get a good draft pick next year though

  2. CMH says:

    Gonna be a long year. This team looks flawed in so many ways.

    Don Bosco could have beat the Redskins today. Embarrassing.Bye bye Tom Coughlin; I hope Plaxico shoots you in your grave.

    • Jason C. says:

      Why don’t you go support big mouth Rex and pansy ass Plax (Coughlin didn’t give me positive support wahhhhh) if this is how you feel?
      They seem to have supporters in some high places as well (ZERO penalties, while Revis and Cro all but tore the jersey’s off of the Cowgirls receivers), so it shouldn’t be that hard.

  4. PC says:

    I think Reese has to go to. He did nothing to help this team and was so badly prepared after the lockout. I don’t wanna hear about injuries either the job of a good GM is to have alternatives ready to step up. I say cut Aaron Ross asap!

    • justin says:

      i know we need to cut aaron ross after the game

    • Jason C. says:

      Well since Reese is supposed to have alternatives in place, and you don’t seem to like Ross who has been thrusted into the position, how does cutting him help the situation? Now his backup will take over the role and fair even worse. I know we’re all frustrated, but at least offer some sort of reasoning if you’re going to make such an outlandish comment.

  5. justin says:

    get rid of the whole team and staff and start fresh

  6. CMH says:

    Reese has been a great GM but I’m amazed at how passive he was this off season. I can’t even think of a rationale for letting so many good guys go without adequate replacements.

    Eli needs to grow up. You can’t let Rex Grossman outplay you. You just can’t.

  7. PC says:

    eli wont grow up he’s 30. he is what he is? maybe we can just go 0-16 and draft Andrew Luck. Fuck Eli he got lucky winning that superbowl he is an average qb at best.

    • Jason C. says:

      Go talk to the fans of all 28 teams that haven’t won the Super Bowl since Eli has before you talk. Sure he had a bad game, nobody will argue that, but if you really want the Giants to fail that badly, please stop supporting them fully, there’s plenty of bandwagon teams that are in need of some more “real fans”.

  8. Chris says:

    Run stoppage good. Running game decent at first. Linebackers didn’t embarrass, and JPP finally turned it on in the second half. Eli and secondary looked average. Seemed like two years ago – seemingly good players make key mistake at the wrong time: Booth and McKenzie, Rolle, Ross, etc. Lots of good practice and a win at home is badly needed. Possible they could be 0-3. If so, Coughlin’s in danger (and I don’t care).
