Film Review: Giants Offense

Greg Cosell is back with his film review of the Super Bowl. Here’s his take on the Giants offense:

“Giants 1st half play breakdown: 19 called passes, 15 called runs (not including Manning kneel down)”

To be expected. Giants are always going to be balanced. I think this game, they wanted to throw the ball a bit more, and they did.

“RT McKenzie had some rough moments in pass protection, Gave up the edge a number of times.”

I’m pretty sure he won’t be back. I think he’s decent, but he is obviously slipping. Move Diehl to right tackle, keep Beatty at left tackle?

“Manningham 38 yds on 1st play of winning TD drive was as good a throw as you’ll ever see, Also great route by Manningham to give Manning room to drop the ball into the bucket”

Yup. Not much to add to that.

“Nicks 18 yds on 3rd + 6 in the 2nd quarter came with Nicks and Cruz on the same side; Patriots dime sub-package, They doubled Cruz in the slot with Arrington and Chung, Nicks one-on-one versus Molden”

The benefit of having two great wideouts. One is going to have single coverage; in this case, it was Nicks.

“What always stands out about Manning is his willingness to pull the trigger, to make stick throws into small windows”

You cannot say that Eli isn’t elite. He is.

    The offensive line is an issue now. I have faith in Beatty but I hope he’s not one of those hard luck always injured guys. Big McK is done, he cannot get off on the snap fast enough anymore. He does not handle speed at all, plus he is no longer getting anywhere near the second level and this has all hurt Snee’s play. What makes Snee great is negated by McK’s deficiencies.

    I think Diehl’s going to redo that contract so he can stay with the team. He might move to RT or wherever he’s needed, he can play across the line except center and Booth can play every position so those guys have to be on the roster. They are too valuable to lose because of their versatility.

    Both Baas and Boothe handled Wilfork by doing what I said, they saw the same thing on film. When you get under his pads and lift he’s like a turtle on his back. I’m sure Belichick is going to tell him to get under 400 pounds. He sould be at 350 and no more.

    I think if he stays healthy Baas is going to have a probowl year, he has gotten better since being here. His technique has improved, we have great offensive line and tight end coaches.
