The offensive game calling during the 2nd & 3rd quarters was too conservative to say the least. It seemed that on 7 consecutive offensive drives the hand off to Bradshaw on 1st down for no game played right into the Cowboys hands. Not until the Giants got behind did they throw on 1st down & that was on the drive they scored the go ahead FG.

Was that by design or what? Did anyone question TC about that in the post game interviews? Man when you get a turnover go for the juggular. Not face 2nd & 3rd & long against all out blitz. Geez get a pair of them. That's not what this offense has been doing so far this season & it almost cost them a game they should have won by at least 20 points.

Now I feel better.

i agree.
the only thing i could think of is maybe since we had a good lead, KG didnt want to tip his hand to the dallas d if they made a comeback and we needed a play to get into range for a fg...i dunno tho i hated the playcalling most of the game...just the routes werent even at the right depths, didnt seem like our chosen method of attack was working; intermediate over the middle pass game.

the deep ball to randle showed us something we shoulda used all game imo that is dallas secondaries weakness, big plays. we went for far too few

Exactly they were 1 - 1 with the deep ball & never went back to it. CRAZY in my opinion.

Bradshaw was clearly not 100%....they should have leaned more on Brown, who was averaging 7 yards per carry.

I think there would have been more attempts on the deep ball if Eli had the time to chuck it far. So many times he threw it away before that play coudl develop...

Ruben Randle needs to run straight ahead. Thank you.

I agree with the conservative play calling, as if the game was already in the bag. That is the reason why so many Giants fans get uncomfortable when we take a big lead. It happens all too often.

They got way too conservative, totally agree.
Traditional wisdom has it that you have a greater chance of making a mistake in the passing game. You also stop the clock with incomplete passes. With this team and Eli at the helm, the passing game makes total sense at all times. We need to run a little to keep the D honest but it was our O that let dallas back in this game.

I was furious when they had a chance to put them away and instead played for a field goal. I honestly thought the game was over when the Cowboys got the ball back down 5 with 2 minutes to go. This team really needs to get that killer mentality, I don't care if the other coach calls out Coughlin, you need to put teams away and this team NEVER does.

A lot of dropped passes that means a lot of clock stoppages, guys had a bad game, need to pick it up against the Steelers.

Only 29 pass attempts with a majority of them on 3rd down. That's way too conservative for this team. I really thought the D won this game they came up big when they absolutely had too in 4th quarter.

What about the local media that covers the NYG's did they ask any questions to TC or OC or QB or anyone?

The Giants left behind their attack offense for a conservative prevent offense. Weren't some on this board calling for a prevent offense in last week's game? Hmmmm..... Giants should stick to attacking and forget the run out the clock stuff.

The Giants offense is built to Establish the pass then run. Brashaw allways gets the big runs after Eli has found his rythm and has loosend up the oppositions D. Not to mention they stay on the fieild longer and tire them out. Which keeps our defense rested. It's usually the other way around but not with the Giants......
