  • What is your least favorite Giant play?

    For me, it has to be the delayed draw. I assume the defense can spot it as easily as I can.

    My son's first words were, "delayed draw coming up."

    Maybe it's just me....I know they've sometimes had some success with the play....I remember Andre Ware scored on a 2 pt conversion on it once.

    But nothing infuriates me more than watching that play go for 2 yards.

    It's the draw play that drives me nuts but a close second is the bomb on 3rd and short.

      I think it has more to do with the people executing this play. Tiki Barber, Dave Meggett, and Tony Galbreath made a living on that play for the Giants. Bradshaw is either not quick enough or doesn't have the vision to see where the hole will be. Either that, or the linebackers are hanging around the middle because we never throw passes to the flat.

        It's definitely the draw and the fade route is creeping up there.
        Mood: WOOF!

          I like the delayed draw a lot more than I actually like the quick draw. I believe we scored and gained yards on a lot of those delayed draws.

          My least favorite part has to be the outside RB screens. They never seem to work. The short pass RB screens in the middle (when Eli flicks the ball) are actually the good ones.

            I don't mind the power draw so much. Patriots run it a ton as well with Mankins pulling as we do with Snee. I do believe it got a key first down in the SB IIRC. Fade to Nicks is up there right now, as always is the bomb and 3rd and inches.

              Deep throws on third and short...

                  I'm sorry, but the shotgun draw doesn't annoy me as much as the deep passes on 3rd and short. At least a shotgun draw has a chance of converting as long as it's not 3rd and forever. Eli's deep passes are a low completion % and often get picked...

                    The shotgun draw works a ton for this offense, it's why the play has been a staple for a while now.

                    Just using the play a couple of times a game, even when it doesn't get big yard, slows the LBers from dropping into coverage and we usually PA from it once a game for a big play.

                    And half the time we run out of the shotgun it's not even a true "draw" play, it's just a running play out of the formation.

                      It does?

                          The shotgun draw pissed me off with DJ Ware, doesn't really bother me with Bradshaw, Brown or any other RB this year.

                          The corner fade route in the endzone was pissing me off, but Hixon was able to pull one in last week.

                            When I, a fan who just sees the team play for 3 hours a week aka not studying film, can correctly call when the shotgun draw is coming that's a problem. Predictable and overly used. Agreed on bombs when its 3rd and short, but the thread wasn't titled "plays/routes you'd like the team to utilize". That answer would be "the slant".

                              pulling up short

                              Nothing agrivates me MORE than on a 3rd and 8,,having the receiver pull up his route about 3 yards shy of the marker and make the catch, only to be short of the first down !!!! For goodness sake,,,RUN BEYOND THE FIRST DOWN MARKER !
