Let this thread be a lighthearted place where anyone can come to express regrets for the incorrect (some might say boneheaded [:)])things they have said about the Giants, their players and coaches. Let me start here:</P>


I had been very, very hard on our special teams led by coach Quinn last year and in the off season. His and their performance this yearleave mefeeling a remorseful. My premise had been that most special teams are comprised of backup CB's and LB's and there isn't much differential there from team to team. Therefore, ST coaching was the differential and it was there that we were failing.</P>


Fast forward, we get a new reliable directional punter, our kickoff returns look at least dangerous, our punt returns are for the most part uneventful (that is a good thing) our our coverage on punts and kick-offs bears no resemblance to the mess we had to watch last year and Tynes takes his performance up a half notch (with an assist from the NFL in moving the spot of the kickoff).</P>


To our special teams led by coach Quinn, my sincerest apologies. Congratulations on a great turnaround performance! [B]</P>


Anyone else moved to bare their soul here on Quinn or other coaches/players?</P>

Not a regret but I was a Osi basher of how he handled his contract deal and I also think he was milking his injury until the Giants were at least had great hopes of the playoffs. I still think that he milked it. </P>


BUT....I cannot deny and never have denied his impact as a player when he is healthy. They guy is one of the biggest game changers in the league. 10 forced fumble last year and what he is doing since he came back in after the Jets game.....he is on fire and the Giants need him to make the run to the SB.</P>


Other than that....I am not a KG, PF, TC basher so all good by me....</P>

Oh my okay I give up. OSI

Wanted to dump trade or bench him.

Thought he was a virus and was infecting the team.

I was wrong he really was hurt.

I feel better thanks for the thread.

All right, I need another trip to the confessional.</P>


Topic: Kevin Gilbride</P>


OK, I never killed the guy but I had my doubts and couldn't care less if he stayed or went. Then I watch him in action through the playoffs including the Super Bowl and I realize.........this guy matched wits with Bill Belichickfour timesand won 3 of them including 2 SB's. I guess what I meant to say all along is that this guy can stay as long as we can keep him. lol There, I got it off my chest.</P>

Man up!

Giants down by 12 points vs. Cowboys at Dallas less then 4-5 minutes to go in the 4th quarter facing possible playoff elimination.

I admit it!

Eli drives them for TD, Austin Miles doesn't get a critical 3rd down pass, Eli drives them again for another TD for lead, JPP blocked game-tying FG For The Win!

Austin Miles doesn't get a critical 3rd down pass
If Miles was a few millimeters ahead and catches that ball, our season ends right there. The TC, PF, Reese and players' bashing threads would have been by the piles.

Instead we are now talking about Eli being elite and some on here who think he's the best in the league, better than Brady, Rodgers, Peyton, and Brees. We got people saying future HOFer.....it's funny how there's such a thin line between love and hate.

so true. I could include the Welker dropped pass in the Superbowl that would have put the Giants in very bad shape, but i don't want to create 13 page threads on What If's.

It's just part of the woven fabric of the Giants' destiny this season. Starting with Smith left, Burress declined, (which people somehow still blamed Reese for being cheap, which was false anyway), Hixon injured, Welcome Victor Cruz!.

Had Cruz ended up with another football team like the Eagles and put up his season numbers, Reese would be getting bashed.

Guilty conscience, jomo?
You must be Catholic.
mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
You know me... I rarely criticize anyone. So, I haven't said anything I feel guilty about. But, the nuns always taught me that just thinking a sin is a sin.
So, I must admit... I didn't think we could win it all without a better run blocking OLine. They were just barely good enough, and they can thank Bradshaw for giving 110% on every carry.
And, thank you Chase Blackburn for bringing vet savvy and maturity to a LB corp that I thought wasn't good enough.
And, thank you to all the DB's, a group I thought was poor, for deciding they needed to get together 3X a week after practice to get better, and for having the courage to go to Fewell and request more Man coverage.
It was Karma.
Every break we got. Every dropped pass our foe's had. Every INT they had in their radar that they dropped. Every little thing that went right.
I've spent 50 years watching the breaks go against us way more times than they have gone for us. This year was Karma. Everything we needed to go right, went right when we needed it most.
A magic year, for sure.
Now, I'm ready to meet The Man.

Agree 100%....Oh man, if Cruz had gone on another team or if Steve Smith was actually productive in Philly, people would've chased Reese out of town. Many people were already killing him when we let Smith, Boss, Seubert, O'Hara, and Cofield walk and they were crapping their pants because of all the moves Philly was making. Now those same people are talking trash to Philly fans and boasting about how good our front office is.

well eli's play wasn't a reason why we were losing, at all...he was pretty much the reason we were winning. those that were hating on him were usually just spoiled unaware people who believe a qb should be 24-30 for 300+yards and 3 tds no picks week in week out

mainegiantsfan
02-21-2012, 10:56 PM
Should be more Eli appologies. Include mine. He started playing like many said he was playing like all along. His accuracy is now a thing to marvel. I heard his QB coach gave him more confidence by working on his footwork to get out of trouble for one thing. I wonder what really turned his performance around.

Way too hard on yourself, YA... We both agreed Osi needed to stop whining... just shut up and play... you weren't wrong on that.
We also agreed Eli often didn't stride forward pushing off his right leg... instead of passing off his "back" foot, as everyone erroneously calls it. When he steps into his throws he is way more accurate, and the pass has way more zip... and you were right on in that criticism... But, he mostly gets away with it... and I'll try not to have a heart attack every time he does it and floats one up as he's falling backwards... because that's who he is, and I don't think he's going to stop doing it 100%, ever. He just has so much confidence in his ability to be accurate doing it. But, at his own QB school for youngsters I'm sure he wouldn't encourage it.

actually, thats one of the most common myths about eli. the "backfoot" throw. every qb in the nfl, at least successful ones, HAS to be able to throw off the back foot.

now dont get me wrong, the ones where he's actually falling backwards and has no shot to put anything on the ball...those suck. but he may have done that 5 times tops last season.

eli was able to put the ball in amazingly tight windows throwing off his back foot. its what allowed him to wait until the last second before throwing a ton of times. of course his technique will be better when he can step up into the throw, but that seemed to happen much less than eli having to make a tough throw off his backfoot

If it wasn't the ST's coaching, it was the DC's inability to scheme his lineman properly. If kildrive would only get creative we might stay on the field longer and score some points. if Eli would only use the no huddle more. If the HC would wake up and stop being so damn conservative, we'd win more games... And On And On And On. I had plenty of ways for the G-Men to march to victory this year. Good thing the FO and the staff had a better way than I did! Go Giants!

1.) Count me in as a former Osi-hater. Well..."hater" is a strong term....but I was NOT happy about how he handled the contract situation in the off-season. I still find the way he handled the situation to be asenine...but where I stand corrected is in the "he's gonna be an awful teammate, and will not try his very best this season" kind of way. I thought for sure that he was going to sleep through this season...and boy was I wrong. He made an IMMEDIATE impact when he came back from his injury, and played a big role this season. Again, I stand by my initial opinion that he was straight up WRONG in the off-season, but I changed my mind about my second opinion as soon as he got back. Even before they wound up making the playoffs and winning the Super Bowl, my opinion of Osi was drastically different after his return than it was in the off season.

2.) Another area I was wrong - I never though that Eli could be "the guy" over the course of a season. I had this argument with my friend OVER AND OVER again, even as late as this past September. I always loved Eli, don't get me wrong...and I didn't necessarily want another QB here. I just figured that if he didn't have a fully stacked O-Line and running game, he would not be very successful this season. Turns out, the Giants had neither a stacked O-Line or even a half-decent running game, and Eli carried the damn team through the regular season. I never thought it could happen, but boy am I glad I was wrong! If it wasn't for Eli doing what he did this year, the Giants would have had a long, miserable season.

3.) I figured Antrel Rolle would never buy into Coughlin's football philosophies. He just seemed too arrogant and too set in his ways. Again...glad I was wrong. He has a big mouth...but I'm convinced that when he called out his teammates for not putting their best foot forward, a switch went off, and guys really bought into it. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't know...they started playing much better after those comments, so who knows? By the way, when that initially happened, I said "wow...he said that? Really? He called out his teammates to the media? This team won't win a game for the rest of the season." Again...glad I was wrong.

Sorry, I know this is a long post...I guess I'm just wrong A LOT...heh heh.

My sincere apologies to Perry Fewell. I wanted him out when I saw QB's have all day to throw against our defense. Granted, I'd still like to see him blitz more, but seeing our front 4 on this run get sacks, forced fumbles, and of course JPP's specialty open field tackles of the RB from behind, all WITHOUT blitzing, I can trust him a little more. I just hope that, even if Osi is not a Giant next year, that we get someone beefy like that so we can nascar some ****.

Oh, and I was a big eli critic in 2010 (my nickname for him was the "interception machine") I won't apologize for my criticism last year on him, but I will give him credit for working with the WR to the level he has and stepping up his game and correcting his mistakes (like the "back foot"). That's what separates truly elite qb's from the rest.

I was getting ready to agree with you, but I changed my mind at the end...

I agree that the team has several issues they need to address going into next season. Winning it all doesn't excuse them from doing whatever they can to improve the team, and I'm sure the front office is well aware of that. However...

...regardless of their regular season record, winning the Super Bowl is the ultimate goal. I agree that winning makes most people forget the negatives...but come on. To say a season ending in a championship is in any way disgraceful is absurd. Especially considering how tough their schedule was, and just how close they were to picking up a couple of W's in those tough games.

In summary, yes, the Giants have to address some things...and yes, I will not stop continuing to expect the best out of the players and coaches. I will continue criticizing and scrutinizing things that don't make sense to me. With that said, winning it all DOES excuse the misaps and miscues...so, coming from a pessimistic sports fan, just relax and enjoy it. No need to criticize the 2011-2012 Giants for the time being.

Never was a Eli,Osi,,Coughlin,Cruz doubter.....

I was feeling Webster was overrated & felt sick to my stomach going into the season with Ballard.....I take that back

But one thing I'll stick with, I'm still not a Gilbride fan.....Eli & the offense bailed him out plenty of times......it wasn't his play calling that got us here, infact there quite a few games that couldve been ugly due to his play calling if it weren't for ELi & co....

Let this thread be a lighthearted place where anyone can come to express regrets for the incorrect (some might say boneheaded [:)])*things they have said about the Giants, their players and coaches. Let me start here:</P>


I had been very, very hard on our special teams led by coach Quinn last year and in the off season. His and their performance this year*leave me*feeling a remorseful. My premise had been that most special teams are comprised of backup CB's and LB's and there isn't much differential there from team to team. Therefore, ST coaching was the differential and it was there that we were failing.</P>


Fast forward, we get a new reliable directional punter, our kickoff returns look at least dangerous, our punt returns are for the most part uneventful (that is a good thing) our our coverage on punts and kick-offs bears no resemblance to the mess we had to watch last year and Tynes takes his performance up a half notch (with an assist from the NFL in moving the spot of the kickoff).</P>


To our special teams led by coach Quinn, my sincerest apologies. Congratulations on a great turnaround performance! [B]</P>

I admit it!

Tom Coughlin I always thought was a good coach. Can't blame him for matt dodge, burress shooting himself, massive amounts of turnovers, etc..

But it was well-known he was under the gun to put the team into the playoffs this season for his job security. He has definitely answered that call. Congrats to him.

I was ready to let Osi walk and was tired of his whining

^ foolish

while searching for reasons for early struggles I picked apart Elis mechanics like it was my job

apologies for both

Way too hard on yourself, YA... We both agreed Osi needed to stop whining... just shut up and play... you weren't wrong on that.
We also agreed Eli often didn't stride forward pushing off his right leg... instead of passing off his "back" foot, as everyone erroneously calls it. When he steps into his throws he is way more accurate, and the pass has way more zip... and you were right on in that criticism... But, he mostly gets away with it... and I'll try not to have a heart attack every time he does it and floats one up as he's falling backwards... because that's who he is, and I don't think he's going to stop doing it 100%, ever. He just has so much confidence in his ability to be accurate doing it. But, at his own QB school for youngsters I'm sure he wouldn't encourage it.

truth zim

some guys can get away with it

but most cannot

Mine was a bit different. It was while we were in our losing streak in the middle of the season and people were ripping on Coughlin a lot and I may a remark about Giants fans being spoiled and that TC will be our head coach until he retires. I know it doesn't seem like a confession but we went on to get completely dismantled by the Saints and at that point I was even cursing Coughlin, wasn't demanding his firing but was thinking about it as well as I really hadn't been enjoying Fewell's defensive schemes but once we healed up it all came together.

1- I wanted everyone cut after the losing streak
Except - Eli, Cruz, nicks, JPP, Bradshaw, and herzlich
2- I guaranteed the entire coaching staff will be replaced
3- I didn't think the Giants had a chance of beating the Jets and Cowboys after the deadskins game-- never said it out loud.

Winter of 2004, when Giants announced Coughlin as the new HC. I was pissed at both the hire and that they did not hire Romeo Crennel. Boy, was I wrong--on both counts-- and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

And I have to admit I had just one brief moment of weakness when, after last year's Saints debacle, I had doubts about Fewell's effectiveness. But only for a moment. I was immediately delivered from evil, and glad of it.

Other than that, I've been a proud and staunch Giants homer, who's defended countless times against many silly Gilbride and Coughlin and Fewell and Eli bashing threads on this hallowed message board.

The thing is, it's not whether you were right or wrong. We still don't know what his future holds. What pisses me off is how brow-beating and snotty all the Barden haters have been toward other posters. There has been a tidal wave of Barden haters not posting because they want to critique Ramses but because they want to mock other posters.

Posters like Redeye were at least able to question what Ramses brings to this team without being a tool in the process.

I have no regrets on players -- I feel that I've been right on all of them whether they've been good, bad, or unproven. I feel that I'm hard on the team as a whole, but its because they don't play to the level that they're capable of.

If anything, the Giants owe JJC7301 an apology for never ever ever never being able to wrap up a division that's begging to be wrapped up. But I also say thank you to the Giants for two recent SB.

Jomo, as far as their ST last year, I thought that the Giants ST were much more improved than they had been in years. They're even better this year, but they weren't bad at all last year. I think that Weatherford has been the MVP of ST. And it was ST that was the deciding factor in the NFC championship game last year in SF.

i think ive admitted this before... but anyways here's my confession.

the year before last (the year we won the SB) during that first cowboys game, after dez scored on that blown coverage, walk in touchdown and it looked like our season was over... i looked over to my brother and said "at least we'll finally fire all our ****ty coaches". i had essentially given up on the season...

i think most of us know what happened next... we came back and won the game, and ended up winning the superbowl that year.

i still question our coaches a lot but it is what it is. can't complain too much with 2 superbowls in a 5 year span.

i have a tendency to blame the coaches for everything that goes wrong and give the credit to the players for everything that goes right.

Not a true confession but I have been leaning toward Painter as our backup QB because I believed that Painter's experience and ability to play error free ball was worth more to us over a few games than whatever Nassib had (which wasn't very much in my eyes)

I have seen enough. Nassib has locked down the #2 imo, probably not close at this point.

I confess to be very confident that two of the TE's in the current group would step up and play well. I wasn't all bent about the TE situation. Now I see that which ever ones we keep, barring a miracle, will be marginally effective.
My confidence that Eli will make this offense "his" is still there. So no confession yet.

I confess to be very confident that two of the TE's in the current group would step up and play well. I wasn't all bent about the TE situation. Now I see that which ever ones we keep, barring a miracle, will be marginally effective.
My confidence that Eli will make this offense "his" is still there. So no confession yet.
I confess to being a wiseass to several on this board. I am not sorry for that because they bring in on themselves on a daily basis.

And now I confess the exact opposite of that.
