  • Eli Manning Again Threw An Early Interception - This Time, Giants Couldn't Recover

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...ew_an_ear.html

    Excerpt: "Eli Manning wanted consistency from his offense, and today at the Georgia Dome, he got it.

    For the second straight week, he threw a brutal interception in the first quarter — this time, on the very first play.

    It didn’t get much better, and unlike a week ago against the Saints, the Giants did not recover. Manning had started 134 regular-season games as a quarterback without the Giants getting shut out.

    Well, there’s a first for everything.

    “You want to go out there and play well, knowing how important that game was,” Manning said after this 34-0 loss to the Falcons. “You want to have your best performance and score points and when you don’t do that, when you know you had chances and you didn’t capitalize and they made plays, it’s tough.”

    Tough is an understatement. Manning completed just 13 of 25 passes for 161 yards with two interceptions.

    That added up to a passer rating of 38.9, his lowest of the season.

    The performance seemed more troubling because the Giants thought they had broken out of a midseason slump.

    Manning had four touchdown passes in a 52-27 victory against the Saints last week, but it was clear from the start that it would be a struggle against a stout Atlanta defense." Read more...

    It might help some if the Giants had a few short dump off pass plays in their repertoire. Every time Eli drops back they are looking for an intermediate or long pass or what we now have to cal the most dangerous pass Eli throws, the slant. Didn't see any screens to backs, swing passes, passes to the flat. It's like they tore those pages right out of the playbook. When you have trouble running the ball, there are other ways to get the backs involved.

    Other teams burn the crap out of our defense with these type of short passes to the backs. Why can't we return the favor?

      I saw a pass in the flat to wilson, that was incomplete because wilson didn't turn around.

        Wilson got flattened trying to pick up the blitz and rushed Eli's throw (at least that's what I saw)

          I think it was because he felt pressure coming from the right side almost immediately. Guess whose man that was?


          We can't even throw dumpoffs because of this guy.

            True enough.... I wasn't trying to blame Wilson for that, it was just a completely blown up play due to aforementioned guy that I know who it is...smh

                  The game was over when Tynes missed the chip shot field goal that would have made it 7-3. Atlanta had all the momentum and we were driving to at the very least win back some of it... the offense stalls (as usual) and Tynes missed it miserably. From that point, the rout was on and this SOFT team folded.

                      I think Eli forgot how to throw the screen anyways.

                        I think its more medium stuff we need like hit guys for 12 yards and in stride. We do good things deep and i see a ton of 5 yard passes short of the first down marker on 3rd down.

                          Not to excuse Eli, but Atlanta seemed extremely prepared.

                          I know this option offense is supposed to be unstoppable "when clicking" but it seems teams if disciplined can force the option and place these receivers in postitions that favor the coverage.

                          The first pass could have been better sure, but it was a good play by Samuels... the 2nd pick was right on Nicks in stride but it was a great gamble and play by the defender.

                          The first pick deflated the team i think, and pretty mentally weak from our "pros".

                            Lol at first I thought Wilson was a bit late but then when I saw the replay it was perfectly designed for him to go one on one vs the LB. That play had a huge gain written all over it.

                            I can't stand this guy.
