  • The "Green Zone"

    Don't get me wrong, I loved beating down the panthers on Thursday. However, somethings been irksome since the victory.

    In 7 trips to the red zone, the Giants only came away with 3 touchdowns and 4 FGs, and while I rather have the points then say, turning the ball over, when we get into the meat and potatoes of or schedule (SFO, GRB, BAL, NOR, ECT.), those point will be invaluable. I really hope we can have a stronger red zone appearence.
    They said Brady and the Patriots couldn't be beat, Eli did it twice, how's that for Elite?

    This is what I been saying in previous posts. Alot of people are making fun of the Panthers defensive coordinator but he played a bend but dont break defense because we are a BIG PLAY OFFENSE. We are a team that stalls in the redzone. The Panthers did not expect Andre Brown to have the day that he had especially scoring TDs. We was one of the worst rushing teams and I think they figured they could hold us to field goals which they did several times.

      So you're upset that we were perfect in the red zone? And you know one of those possessions was with backups in and a huge lead?? We're fine.

        I never said that, what I said was when get to play tougher opponents, we might need TDs instead of FGs and my philosophy is that a FG, while it does get us points, is a dead drive.

            Football has been very, very good to us.
            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

            # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

            1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
            2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
            3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
            4-New York Giants!!!

                  It wasn't like we were blanked, I think it's a work in progress and the points in the Green zone will come. Things are moving forward and the G'men are getting better each week.

                    I'm just happy that we stopped turning the football over. We protected the ball and we crushed them. TO's are worse than a stuttering redzone offense.

                      I thought I was seeing brilliant performance art depicting the representation of the Jets season.

                      P.S. - Yeah I noticed the lack of red zone production as well ... hopefully we'll get that fixed up now that we've discovered a running game.
                      I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                        3 out of 7 is 42%, which is lower than it should be. However, I think the Giants have been improving in many facets of their game. The team looked better in week 2 than in week 1. The team looked better in week 3 than in week 2. However, there are areas that still need improvement, and green zone production is one of them.
                        Do not feed the trolls.

                          It's not just the last game. Even the game before against Tampa they struggled in the red zone.

                            It drives me crazy when they line up in tight formations at the goal line after 1st down (not too mention that the Giants have struggled in the area over the past couple of years). Times have changed and it is too hard to move defensive lines when they know you are running short yardage. I don't understand why they don't spread it out. It really puts the defense at a disadvantage for the run. That's why that trap draw works as their go to 2 point conversion play.

                              The main reason why they do not change the play calling is because Killdrive is a "genius" when it comes to designing goal line plays: Find what it does not work and try it repeatedly because one of these days it will work.
