    When was the last time????

    The New York Giants Put up 50 points against a team??????? New England continues to do it, and the Saints are almost following suit. Why can we not put these types of games together to keep my blood pressure from spiking?!!!!!! Someone has to have an answer.

    We lose to scrubs over half the time and the other half....we are borderline squeaking out a win!

    Exactly! Giants don't run up the score. The best example I can think of was when we played the 9ers this season. We held them to 3 and when it was pretty clear that the game was practically over, what did we do? We handed the ball off to Bradshaw to run up the middle. Now don't get me wrong, that is the best thing to do so that we are guaranteed to run the clock down instead of taking the riskier approach of going to the air and potentially getting an incomplete pass to stop the clock (or worse).

    However, that's what differentiates us from teams like NE. They can clearly have a big enough lead within the 2 minute drill and take a knee to run out the clock and will still go for TD's. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth when they do that, all for the sake of stat padding. Do I want us to win with bigger margins than one possession scores? Of course. Is it necessary to win by 4 scores when it was clear a long time ago the game was over? No.
    when have the pats ever gone for tds during a 2 min drill when the game was clearly over? You guys are exaggerating a little too much when it comes to the saints and the pats. We lost to the eagles up by 3 touchdowns with the ball, with 8 minutes left to go in the game. That being said, if there is 8 minutes left to go in a game and we're not up by at least 4 touchdowns, you best believe i want to see us going for touchdowns.

    If a game is clearly over with 2 minutes left to go which in my opinion would be a 3 score lead, i am pretty sure teams are just going to run the ball until the other team is out of timeouts. You play to win the game.
    If the other team is calling timeouts to stop the clock then you have a right to make them pay.

    Pats once again proved my point, up 35-0, they kept attacking on O, never letting their foot off the pedal, never giving the Jets an inclination that maybe, just maybe, they can pull this game out cuz NE is starting to get conservative & just run the ball. No, NE kept throwing & scoring 7s, not just freaking 3s & all the Jets could do the rest of the way is try their very best to keep NE from putting a 50+ burger on them.

    I hate NE with a passion, but I admire & respect their philosophy, they will step on your neck & never let off till they are up by 20+ with 2:00 left to play!

    This is like their 4th or 5th blowout win of the yr! Their 3 losses have been by a combined 4 pts! I'm having that bad feeling that they will be the AFC rep again in the SB & if we wanna perform the hat trick on them in a SB rematch, the Giants better start getting that killer instinct NE has cuz they will be out to not just beat us in the SB, but totally slaughter us!

    Lots of people here saying the team's recent downturn is due to intangibles, for example, lack of killer instinct. Like this is a team with dominating talent and it's just the mental that's off. Sorry guys. Just not true. It's more like the fans need a scapegoat, someone to be angry at. I guess that's just human nature.
    I think he's talking more about putting teams away when we already have a lead late in the game. We very frequently let inferior teams hang around late in games.

    Well, responding to someone that doesnt agree with you by asking "Do you even watch other games or see the scores?" is a bit condescending, if not insulting.


    And I was hoping for your expanation on how in the 80s the Giants had a killer instict and blew out opponents. is i"

    If that's not good enough, you will never be satisfied.
    So I suppose the Giants should have ended the season after that win? They have played lethargic most of the season. Again, we DO NOT FINISH games very well and I want them to keep their foot on the gas until the clock reads 0:00 in the 4th qtr.

    You are right, that one game did not keep me satisfied. I am a terrible fan for thinking they should not continue to play the best they can for the ENTIRE season.

    When was the last time we scored 21 points on defense and special teams?

When you are well ahead, the conservative approach wins more games on average.

    Tell that to the Patriots! They have won every game in the last decade in which they put up 40+ pts on an opponent! So, no, teams don't come back on you when you continue to score, & be up by 3+ scores, it takes the other team out of their game plan & more predictable to defend cuz you know they have to abandon the run game & pass on almost every down. in 2010, Giants were "well ahead" of the Eagles with 8 mins left, how'd that turn out? 02' playoffs vs SF, "well ahead' late in the 3rd qt, how'd that turn out?

    No, when you have your foot on the opponents throat, you don't take it off! Giants just don't seem to understand that concept.

    I'd rather see the Defense post a shutout. I miss the days of a dominating mean Giants Defense.

    It's nice of Brees to make a $1 mm donation to Sandy victims. I do think the Saints try to humiliate when they run up the score. I am having second thought on Brees, but Payton has a huge chip. I think the Giants are guided by the Gentleman Mara concept and that will always rule.

    You never say that and here is why. It makes no sense. How about this. Why we lose a lot of games and hardly get a big lead? Oh sorry, that is not our style.

    Thanks. I've been looking for people with this point of view. When the Saints were beating the Gmen 42 - 24 or something like that, did they really need to get to 49? Was it that important to score another td in the closing seconds? Is the win against the niners any less of a beatdown because it was "only" 26-3?

    I'm hoping the Gmen put a hurtin on the Saints when they visit MetLife, but I'd love it if it's a similar score as the niners and I'd love Coughlinto be asked the question at the post game press conference and reply, "we don't run up the score on our opponents. It's disrespectful". Drew Brees has this nice guy rep, don't know why. Sean Payton, also. They seem petty to me.
    I'd say Brees actually is a nice guy from what i've seen. Payton, not so much...
