What to Do?

The November swoon has begun for the Giants, and Sunday their loss to the Bengals was about as awful as any loss the team has suffered in recent memory.

From the fact Eli Manning hasn’t thrown for a score since the 3rd quarter of week 7, to a defense that for the second straight week seemed flat and not able to pressure the QB, the Giants right now are fading, and only the fact the rest of the NFC East isn’t that good may be the only thing to save them.

For now with the bye – what do the Giants do? What’s the biggest thing that has to change for this team to get back on track?

The last two weeks have been awful – is there more to come, or do you think they can get it turned around when they take the field against the Packers on Sunday night in two weeks?

    Remove Diehl and Webster. Run more Brown and Wilson. Blitz more. Above all, Gilbride and Fewell have to call good games – they haven’t in the last three.

    Trade for Tebow

    What could the reason be for not giving Wilson more reps? If its pass pro ability, why in the world is Diehl starting? He cant block anybody. If its his fumbling, why in the world is Bradshaw playing? He is not fully healthy and is fumbling. Cruz is still shook up from that hit in the PIT game. He dropped the sure TD because he heard the footsteps coming from his left. Hixon’s sprained ankle makes way for Barden, will be interesting to see if he gets more work in two weeks. Rest will heal some of these players. Eli cannot keep looking like the Eli we knew from earlier in his career. His decision making was his problem then, and that problem seems to be creeping back.

      I completely agree! I think Tom Coughlin is far to loyal to his regulars. Deihl over Locklear, Bradshaw over Wilson AND Brown. I mean Cruz was below Hixon on the depth chart last year. He only got his shot because of Hixon’s injury. Let’s hope Barden and Locklear can cement their places for the rest of the year soon.

    I think the rest of the league has figured out the Giants third down offence. Every time it looked like the Bengals were in the Giants playbook. This is a really good time to do some self-scouting. The Giants must have some glaring tendencies.

    Our November woes never cease to disappoint me.

    David Diehl should stick to something hes good at like drinking and driving…he is god awful. and your right, COughlin is too loyal to his players. Wilson is twice as explosive as bradshaw when he touches the ball and Brown is a better north and south runner. Overall im not worried though they will be in the thick of it come playoff time.

    My guess is get rid of the offensive cord. the db’s run around like they don’t know what to do, they cannot cover anybody, they need to put a lot of pressure on the qb, sunday the bengals qb looked like dan marino in his best years.
