Excerpt: "Eli Manning wanted consistency from his offense, and today at the Georgia Dome, he got it.

For the second straight week, he threw a brutal interception in the first quarter — this time, on the very first play.

It didn’t get much better, and unlike a week ago against the Saints, the Giants did not recover. Manning had started 134 regular-season games as a quarterback without the Giants getting shut out.

Well, there’s a first for everything.

“You want to go out there and play well, knowing how important that game was,” Manning said after this 34-0 loss to the Falcons. “You want to have your best performance and score points and when you don’t do that, when you know you had chances and you didn’t capitalize and they made plays, it’s tough.”

Tough is an understatement. Manning completed just 13 of 25 passes for 161 yards with two interceptions.

That added up to a passer rating of 38.9, his lowest of the season.

The performance seemed more troubling because the Giants thought they had broken out of a midseason slump.

Manning had four touchdown passes in a 52-27 victory against the Saints last week, but it was clear from the start that it would be a struggle against a stout Atlanta defense." Read more...

It might help some if the Giants had a few short dump off pass plays in their repertoire. Every time Eli drops back they are looking for an intermediate or long pass or what we now have to cal the most dangerous pass Eli throws, the slant. Didn't see any screens to backs, swing passes, passes to the flat. It's like they tore those pages right out of the playbook. When you have trouble running the ball, there are other ways to get the backs involved.

Other teams burn the crap out of our defense with these type of short passes to the backs. Why can't we return the favor?

I saw a pass in the flat to wilson, that was incomplete because wilson didn't turn around.

Wilson got flattened trying to pick up the blitz and rushed Eli's throw (at least that's what I saw)

We can't even throw dumpoffs because of this guy.

True enough.... I wasn't trying to blame Wilson for that, it was just a completely blown up play due to aforementioned guy that I know who it is...smh

The game was over when Tynes missed the chip shot field goal that would have made it 7-3. Atlanta had all the momentum and we were driving to at the very least win back some of it... the offense stalls (as usual) and Tynes missed it miserably. From that point, the rout was on and this SOFT team folded.

I think Eli forgot how to throw the screen anyways.

I think Eli forgot how to throw the screen anyways. I think its more medium stuff we need like hit guys for 12 yards and in stride. We do good things deep and i see a ton of 5 yard passes short of the first down marker on 3rd down.

Not to excuse Eli, but Atlanta seemed extremely prepared.

I know this option offense is supposed to be unstoppable "when clicking" but it seems teams if disciplined can force the option and place these receivers in postitions that favor the coverage.

The first pass could have been better sure, but it was a good play by Samuels... the 2nd pick was right on Nicks in stride but it was a great gamble and play by the defender.

The first pick deflated the team i think, and pretty mentally weak from our "pros".

That play had a huge gain written all over it.

I can't stand this guy.

It was a bunch of things early

Eli throws a pick, they have a good job drive Tynes misses a chip shot. They go down the field score its 14-0. Still fight in the team Nicks runs a pretty post route turns the corner around gets behind the safety and Eli misses him. If he hits him its an 80 yard Touchdown. Instead its 2nd down . 1 play later Eli is sacked, Drive over. Still in the game Defense plays well ,then Eli throws another pick Defense mans up holds to a FG. Giants go for it on 4th down Eli can easily run and get the first down instead forces the ball to Cruz its incomplete . Team quits at this point

If Nicks isnt injured he catches up to that ball .... but even if he did grab it yesterday I doubt its a td, he's caught easily and we **** the bed in the red zone again.

The Asante Samuel interception goes more to him then Eli making a poor throw. Everyone knows that Asante jumps routes, so the best way to counter that is to do a pump fake. Maybe Eli thinks he doesn't have enough time in the pocket to do that. If you watch the play over Asante had that play read from the snap of the ball.
