    So just about half the season they didn't score 20 points? In the second Dallas game they would not have scored 20 without all the TO's.

      Points per drive is the ultimate evaluator. It basically states how often a team can score on you when they have the ball. So that covers your turnover stats and scoring defense. The Giants were 19th in that department since they only had 170 drives against that defense (lowest in the league). They were also ranked 20th in TDs allowed per drive. It basically menas that they let teams control the game and the clock by not being able to force them off the field.Face facts the Bucaneers, Bengals Ravens and Falcons destroyed them. Even in close games anytime they were counted on to make a big stop they folded like a cheap tent. The offense who everybody wants to "run the ball more" was ranked 2nd in points per drive and 5th in yards per drive but was only given 169 drives all year long because this awful defense couldn't get anyone off the field. How about leave well enough alone ?The cold hard truth is that this defense was pathetic and the fact that Fewell still has a job is a joke.The Giants spent more on defensive cap sapce than anyone but the Jets. Sheridan's defense was better all around and they quit on him. The clowns that compare Fewell to Spagnuolo are delusional.As far as I am concerned this defense is a bottom feeder that should have been scrapped and rebuilt this year
      The Falcons and Ravens destroyed both the offense and defense. Lets not forget they where shut out in one game and had 2 scores in the other game, 1 was meaningless. The offense also spotted the Falcons with great position off of two interceptions thrown by Eli. Likewise, the Tampa game and the Bengals games where not the best games for Eli. He started out both games rough and threw interceptions.

        As I said, with exception of a couple of games the main issue was scoring, not sustaining. This doesn't disprove my point.

          But as of this year in regular season terms, we don't play either. Falcons possibly in playoffs, but Ravens repeating? Doubt it. We cool man. We cool. Easier schedule, weaponized offense, a revamped defense, a kick *** special teams, and an ELIte QB in his prime. Now to just work on RT...
          and should we meet the Falcons in playoffs, it will be on our turf. Just bELIeve.

            DW-top 5 rb next yr
            He had a reputation for fumbling and then he fumbled once and TC yanked him. The rest of the year he saw very limited playing time. Last year we had 2 better options than Wilson. AB and Ware both knew the system and know how to block in pass protection.
            Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

              So, let me see... If the defense allowed one score in the 4Q, and we lost by 1 point, that would mean they surrendered the go ahead score, no? And then let the Skins hold the ball for 2/3 of the quarter on top of that?

              The offense wasn't given a chance to do anything in the 4Q.

                Wrong. After that score the offense went 3 and out. Then the defense forced a punt and the offense had 1 first down and then punted again. They had their chance and they blew it.

                      The offense had plenty of chances all game. The defense sucked too. Especially late when they couldn't get off the field.
                      Why is this an argument? neither side of the ball did their jobs.We NEEDED that game desperately and blew it. Everyone is to blame except Morehead.
                      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

Last year we had a chance to win it all and we had a good veteran RB that played well in all phases of the game. Wilson had fumbling issues and blocking concerns, none of which would help us defend our title. If you are fighting like we were fighting for a playoff spot it's a judgment call to play or not play a dynamic rookie that has a fumbling problem and trouble picking up the blocking scheme. If had played him it would have been high risk high reward, and that's not TC's style.
                            Bradshaw never really got over his fumbling problems he did it til his last game

                              The holes have been filled but the question here is how are the guys filling in are going to respond.
