Besides the Eli picks...we had a shot to get back in the game.

Not getting the first down on the 4th down attempts destroyed the team yesterday.

Having said that, having Matt Ryan go 23-28 is another is issue.

EXACT 180 of last year's playoff game.......seeing how much affect those 4th down non-conversion had on the crowd, the defense and Atlanta's O last year I figured TC would take the points and not give them that kind of momentum........you should never get emotional in business or coaching.......

Agree.

THE GIANTS ARE NOT A POWER RUNNING FOOTBALL TEAM ANYMORE. They have not been for the last couple of years. Stop coaching them that way.

As ineffective as the running game has been for some reason we continue to try and play power ball. The o line hasn't been blocking well at all. What ever happend to play action or a quick dump off to one of the backs.

If Coughlin and Killdrive are such "geniuses", why do they keep repeating the stale play calling?

Our soft defense probably makes them look like a power running team when they line up against each other in practice.
