  • Lombardi Packers and New Giants

    Lombardi had one great play that was powerful and dared other teams to stop it. Packers pulled their left guard ran power sweep right time and again opposing teams couldn't stop it. The new Giants regime in the old Lombardi style with Saquan and Solder and Hernandez will run the same and run power sweep left..Sorry Eli bashers, but Eli has at least 4 more years as the o-line improves and the run game takes over. He's gonna be well rested from here on. In fact, feel more apprehensive about the d-line than the new o-line. The big question is, will Beckham go along with shared glory with Barkely?

    football is quite different now than it was when lombardi was coaching. Eli was already in extreme decline i doubt he has 4 more years left. I welcome a return to the more of a ground and pound type of offense. to give the defense some rest finally.

        The Giants did this all of last year.

        The problem was that every team accepted the challenge and had absolutely no problem stopping it. Repeatedly.

        Couple that with a last ranked defense that sucks so hard they can't manage to ever get themselves off the field, you get a 3-13 team.

          Did not have the new crop of linemen last year. Last year was poor coaching inadequate talent. Hernandez is left guard, right guard pulls on left sweep. Everyone has to stop comparing last year to this year n beyond. Different O different D different caliber of coaches. There will be more time to pass as Ds will be kept off balance by stronger run game, can't layback anymore. Also suspect first few games especially on D to be a little crazy but then I believe there will be pass rush by the LBs n nose tackle up the middle, Everyone should be wishing n hoping Eli improves with protection n run game. Oh, football doesn't change, run the ball, stop the run, rush the passer. Football is a coaches game. The Giants now have coaches.
