we went three and out 3 times in the 3 Qtr and could not make 4th and 1 (again) by trying to jam the ball up the middle - the Cowboys got wise to our short pass offense and we should have gone deep sooner which Eli eventually did in the 4th</P>


we were lucky but very alert to recover our two fumbles </P>


we got too lax and let the cowpies score on a 94 yard drive - Tynes missed a 38 yarder that wewill need next week against a team better than the Cowpies- </P>

What worries me is the fact that the Giants still haven't found a way to play a full 60 minutes.</P>


Last nights game was as close as we've seen this year year so, while it still worries me, I'm a little more confident in the team moving foward.</P>

This is what I don't like about Gilbride's play calling...everyone knows that we have not had too much of a running game this year and the Oline is not exactly opening up holes with their blocking....why not do a fake hand off and throw a short pass for the first down once in a while?....He's just too predictable for my likeing

The only thing that really worries me is the run game, which is still non existent. I liked the combo of Boothe at C and Petrus at G but even then, the snapping by Boothe made me nervous. Manning had to do some juggling here and there and we got lucky there weren't any real fumbles. I wish they would use more play action on 3rd and 4th and 1's and just get more creative there because the straight ahead bullrush isn't working.

we havent played a full 60? You do realize the other guys get paid too right Are we better then the boys - yes - but we won 31-14 and the cowboys were bound to show some fight and they did in the third. The main problem was running in short yardage but you do realize the giants did in fact throw on 3rd and short several times INCLUDING Cruz's td. That said on 3rd and 1 you gotte ba able to get a yard on the ground too - thats not on gilbride. I think they'd rather have boothe and petrus to but there is no way in hell coughlin will trust boothe with snaps if he doesnt have too. Baas did a nice job on Ratliff but Petrus seems like a road grader in the run game but still a little confused on pass protection.

Opps, my bad.</P>


But that leads me to another thought...did the Cowboys not get paid for the first half?</P>

You make a very good point...i guess it's better to live with Baas then to risk a turnover with Boothe's shaky snaps....also we should be able to run for 1 yrd on 3rd and 1...maybe Bradshaw would be the better choice for short yardage gains?

Yes- Bradshaw off right tackle or pitchout

Reviewing the tape, Bradshaw is no better on 4th than Jacobs. We're just not a good 4th down team. We also run the same play, which is a dive right into the B gap.

I said do a play action, quick pass, or pitch to keep the D on their heels. I guarantee every team KNOWS what the Giants are doing on 4th and short. They've run the same play all year.

I'll take petrus and boothe over boothe and baas any day of the week. At least we have a run game with petrus in there. Why the heck did thewy take baas?</P>

Wow . . . replace a few names, and this could be a post from the Falcons board.

Wow, the last thing you want to do around here after a victory is mention where you think the team can improve... in a thread that's talking about it no-less.

I was so happy that they where up 21-0 at the half, but I really wanted them to score again to start the second half. The defense did give up a couple of scores but they also had an interception and a 4th down stand that have the offense the ball.

The offense has been good this year but they need to be a lot better at taking advantage of what the defense gives them. Between the second Eagles game and the second Washington game the defense had 5 interceptions and the offense did nothing with them.
