...to grab a lead...or possibly to keep up with GB. If we can jump out to a significant lead then we can burn the clock with runs, screansand short to intermediate passing. However, Perry!!!>>>We have to maintain an all out effort to keep pressure on Rodgers...very simple...give Rodgers time and we lose...no soft coverage on WR's...make them be physical to run their route/disrupt timing...I hate to sound so obvious, but more than one coach isn't getting it!

I've read this board and have heard sports radio guys and callers all ask for this and it has yet to happen. Don't see anything changing this week. In fact another problem I have with the offense is how they still try to run the clock to 0 when they can't score in the 1st half and have no running game. They let the defense dig in while other offenses, like the Saints and Packers play a high pace offense and get the defense tired. We will see the Giant defenders with their hands on their hips by the 3rd series.

It really boggles the mind at times. Its obvious Eli and the O run the no huddle or hurry up pretty good when needed. I just dont get why they dont do it more often. Mix it in here and there. I am a fan of letting the coaches coach and giving them the benefit of the doubt that they know what they are doing. </P>


But its seems like a no brainer to me to let Eli run the hurry up....</P>

the last thing you want to do is score quick and give Rodgers the ball back

our best defense sunday will be our offense having long sustained drives that come away with TDs

Right, but isn't the best way to do that by running the ball?

Not sure they are capable of doing that.

IF we can do that, and thats a huge IF....that would be the most logical and methodical way of beating the pack

id say go TDs first, then long drives second. obviously it is ideal against the pack to eat clock and score TDs, but i just dont think we can do that with our running game. i think sometimes we pass the ball well on drives then get close to the red zone and try to eat clock by running it, and end up with FGs bc of losses and penalties.

score anyway possible. dont worry about the clock. worry about the score. if in some way the giants get up by multiple scores this game, then yes, try to sustain long drives to kill clock, but dont just think running it is the answer. otherwise, just put up points.

last season we had a big lead vs. the eagles because of solid passing, and tried to run out the clock. that led to the eagles getting the ball even more and eventually winning. stick with what works and keep your foot on the gas. dont give rodgers and their offense any breathing room.

just my take, fwiw.

I understand your logic, but I disagree.

The best approach is for Eli & Co. to get into a rhythym and score points. I don't care if it take 2 minutes or 5 minutes, whatever it takes to score.

I think Eli and the rest of the team play better in an up-tempo offense, anyway.

I want the offense to take are long or as quick as required, but just score.

Like you said, long drives with TD's would be awesome, but it's the TDs and not the time, that concern me.

Chances are the Giants will need that clock in the 2nd half anyway.

I think we saw a glimpse of enough of a running game Monday night to have that hope, especially with Bradshaw on tap to return. The running game doesn't have top be the best ever, just good enough to make the passing game hummmmmmmmm

I want to see Bradshaw make a difference, but he was not doing great before he was injured and this is the 1st time he practiced in about a month.

The bottom line is they need to score. Sure the defense needs to play better, but they are going to give up points to that high power offense. If the Giants only score 3 points in the 1st half again I think they are in big trouble.

1000% correct YA.

We need to win the time of poseession by a lot, scoreon our possessions and not turn the ball over . . . running a no huddle would be suicide

I assure everyone if we score on every drive, we will win. I dont care if it takes 10 seconds or 10 minutes.

If we score on most of our drives we will likely win. Again regardless whether or not they take 10 seconds or 10 minutes.

Well atleast we agree on something. We definitely have to start off quick (offensively) if we have any chance of success in this game.

imo, Eli must play the game of his life. We may not be able to run, but we still need to kill clock.

So we're going to be facing a lot of 3rd and 7s because our oline can't block for crap. Eli needs to carry the team and make those conversions.

If we get all pass happy and go 3 and out, taking 1 minute off the clock, we're in for a long night.

If we're going to lose, let's lose in style and Blitz a ton.

how about a no huddle with runs and short passes???</P>


Just because its no huddle doesnt mean it has to be hurry up and big down field plays with quick scoring....</P>
