  • NFL network - Jeffries, WR Oilers under Gilbride

    Said that offensive players did not like Gilbride. He said that having 4 ligit WRs was a big part of what made them successful.

    He also said they had SERIOUS RED ZONE issues. We were not good in the red zone...interesting.

    Hopefully more of our organization watches this 'Football Life' special and they seriously antagonize Gilbride and his policies from early on in his career. This should be more of an eye-opener for the masses that don't think Gilbride is the reason for some of our abysmal showings.

      It's reasonable to assume he'll be fired when the season ends.

            I hope he is just asked to retire and he complies...I know there is a lot of hate for him around these boards but he did leave us with two incredible memories...

              I wonder how good Gilbride will be at bagging groceries next off season.....

                I don't think so. Cruz is the only good receiver Giants have and the O-line is not that good. There is no way the offense is going to shine.

                  I think the front office is reading the mood of the fans.....people are tired watching guys underachieve on offense.

                  They desperately need a Gruden-type of guy to instill some fire on offense.

                    Didn't the Oilers have a top 5 offense every year under Gilbride? I'm not saying he deserves to come back next season but he was very successful over there. I remember Gilbride's "run-n-shoot" was all the rage back then.

                    With that said that was about 20 years ago, I'd like to see some changes for next season...

                      The Giants offense have been top 10 I believe before this season and the last season, and yet..

                        I'm not defending Gilbride but those Oiler teams were very successful and it was large part due to their offensive passing attack.
                        Also, many coaches are not liked, but most importantly are they respected?

                          That attack is fine in a dome in Houston.

                          I don't like watching that crap in the Meadowlands in December.

                            The one thing I got from the football life take on the punch is that Killdrive was good and ready to punch back if he wasn't restrained by a player. And it seems like he takes great joy in destroying Buddy's progeny too... he lost to Buddy (who took the HC job of the Cardinals) in 1994 while Killdrive stayed on the sinking Oilers ship, but after that, Killdrive as OC or HC has gone 7-3 against the brothers Ryan at DC or HC...

                            -As OC of PIT, Split with BAL (Rex DC) twice in 1999 and 2000 (2-2)
                            -As OC of NYG, beat BAL in 2008 (Rex DC), beat NYJ in 2011 (Rex HC), and went 3-1 against Dallas in Rob's tenure as DC (total of 5-1)

                            Side note, he DID go 1-3 vs the Patriots in 2002-03 while Rob was the linebackers coach and he was Buffalo's HC, in addition to losing in Baltimore (Rex) and winning vs Oakland (Rob) while he was QB coach for the giants. But safe to say it was not his offense vs the Ryan defense in either scenario.

                            I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.
