  • WHY CAN'T WE SCORE A TD ON THE 10 YD. LINE

    It's very fustrating, to get in the red zone and most of the time we have to settle for a field goal ! WHY ?

    Will this change on Sunday ?

    Because you have to cross the goal line?

      They want to make sure Tynes is earning his salary.

          We don't really have the capability to throw up fades in 1 on 1 coverage like other teams do in those situations. If I had one complaint about Nicks, it would be that he doesn't make those plays consistently. And you really can't look at Cruz here, he's just not big enough. Barden...well that's another story.

          Unless a player is able to break quick towards the sideline (ala Cruz TD last week) our options are pretty limited. Usually consisting of slants or quick underneath throws with high reliance on slot guys and TE's.

          Definitely an area we could improve on.

            We have three big guys so lets see what they can do. Usualy when you are in tight situations, you got to have a system. One system is putting the ball where your man can get it. For that to happen, your man needs to be at the right spot. This can be taught by the position coaches and disgussed with the OC.

              Bennett appears to be emerging as a strong redzone threat.

                Definitely agree. I'm excited to see how we look to him in the future in these situations.

                  I notice us throwing for the endzone a lot when we get in the red zone. And that equals in a bunch of 2nd and 3rd and longs, where we wing up kicking the 3. Thats what I noticed sometimes anyway. Id rather us pound the ball more in the red zone.
                  WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                    The play calling gets pretty ridiculous in the red zone.

                      Sounds like the solution to me. Ways of getting to the solution is what you're looking for.

                        It does. That's the frustrating part. The offense would much rather score from 60 yards out.

                        The Giants need to apply the "Finish" mantra to their trips to the redzone.

                          3rd and 2 on the 50 yards line, go for a deep pass.

                            Yeah, I noticed that too. We strive on big plays, but we can't always depend on them. We need to find a way to consistently score in the red zone, especially against this defense.
