Yah yah. 23-20 was the final. But once again the NY STINKING PUKING PUNTING GIANTS get 14 points in garbage time to look competitive when they are not. The Giants are 1-6. They are not worth our time. They are a franchise that is so backward right now that all of the comparisons to the 1970’s are appropriate.
Eli needs to be benched.
Offensive Line. Carpet bomb it and draft OL every single pick.
QB? Lauletta suit up.
I will not waste all my time recapping the myriad mistakes made all game long. Get on Twitter and read the tweets. There was a minimum of 14 points left on the field (which we delineated). I will take the time to discuss one glaring example of incompetence- the end of the first half’s amateur clock management. That little slice cost the team 3 of those 14 points. SCENE: The Giants have just gotten a 38 yd pass play to the ATL 13. They have all 3 timeouts. There is ~1:35 on the clock. What do you do? If you are Bill Belichick you huddle up and take all 35 secs off the clock. With 3 timeouts, your job is to bleed the clock so that ATL never sees the ball before the half is over. But Shurmur and Eli are amateurs and they are rushing to get up to the line. Hurrying. Hurrying. Whew! They snap the ball at 1:27 left in the half. What a relief! I was worried the Giants wouldn’t see another snap! Oh. My. God. This team is so utterly dysfunctional that they have two timeouts in their pocket after wasting one AND GIVE ATL THE BALL BACK WITH 0:50 LEFT.
You amateurs. Incompetents. Fools. You may as well have Joe Pisarcik hand the ball off to Csonka and give them 3 points (Lol Brady, Brees, Mahomes or Goff would make it 7 points).
Fire Shurmur. Now. I don’t care. He’s a loser. Your team scores 6 points vs the 29th ranked NFL Defense. And you can’t figure out even remotely what to do with a minute and half left in the half? I give up.
The Giants have made too many bad decisions at every level in the organization. Solder. Omameh. Stewart. Shurmur. Eli. And that’s just this year. The architecture with OBJ heading the franchise is upside down. He’s a star in the wrong place at the wrong time. As we see with guys like Dez Bryant, Josh Gordon and Amari Cooper, WRs are always available. But OLs have to be built. It will take years to undo Reese’s damage, and Gettleman rushes to fix it all as fast as the Giants rush to get their next play off at 1:27 left in the half. A metaphor for organizational impatience. This is the 1970’s. It’s that bad.
