  • If I'm nitpicking I CANNOT STAND the conservative play calling in the 2nd half

    Running the ball just to run the clock out was making me nuts... 1 yard gain, 2 yard loss, 1 yard gain, 3 yard loss, 2 yard gain.... kills momentum & drives letting Dallas back into the game.


    KG drives me nuts....

    That isn't playcalling. That's execution.




    Had those been 4-7 yard runs each time you'd be talking about how brilliant KG was for running the ball and keeping the ball out of Romo's hands.

      What Drez said.

      I just can't fathom why we can't convert short downs.

      Everyone knew the run to BJ was coming, why not run play action there? And the draws, don't get me started. Start running PA out of the shotgun.

        Yea I would have to agree. We did come out a sluggish in the second half. Once we found our rhythm everything seemed to go a lot smoother. For me I felt we should have been agressive from the start of the second half, could have stomped them out alot sooner. But other than that im satisfied in how the giants played.

          Nope I wanted to stick with what was working & Eli was picking them apart.


          I'm not saying stop running but stop being so damn predictable.

            well remember vs. the Jets we threw it with a lead and everybody went crazy when the ball was dropped into the hands of the Jets for an INT



            how bout the players block it, catch it, run it and throw it better in those situations ... all about execution

              That is one of things I can get on KG about. He should really call more PA in those spots where everyone knows we're going to run, and we should PA out of shotgun a little more, just so the defense can't sell out on the draw every time.




              All in all, though, those are pretty minor things.




              I think the KG hate here was just gotten to the point where if every play doesn't gain 20 yards then KG is an incompetent moron.




              I suppose the only major complaint I have with KG is in the redzone. I don't know if it's play design or playcalling (or some combination of both), but that's the only area where I think he needs serious improvement.

                  And the funny thing about people getting on KG about that is that it was an audible by Eli. KG called a run. Eli saw 8 or 9 in the box and aubibled to a quick slant which Nicks let bounce off his hands for a pick. Good call on the audible on Eli's part. Good throw. Nicks just has to catch that ball for a 7 or 8 yard gain.

                      Not quite. The giants always run in those situations, the other team knows that. It makes it that much harder when the D is playing against the run.

                        When the players havent executed proper running blocking in 15 and a half games, it comes back to playcalling. The line(with a few random exceptions) gets 0 push when run blocking. They also look lost alot of the plays where I see half the o-line holding up their arms dumbfounded after half of them dont know who to block and the run if stuffed.

                          I agree. Gilbride isn't half as bad as people make him out to be.

                          Predictability isn't always bad, they just have to execute if the playcalling is going to be predictable. But I'd like some more creativity in spots where 99% of the world knows what we're doing.

                          And yes, redzone playcalling is awful.

                            Don't most teams run in those situations? Up by 14-21...




                            It has nothing to do with the playcalling. It has to do with the execution.




                            As I said before, if we were popping those off at 5 yards a crack then we'd be talking about how brilliant KG is.




                            And I know for a fact that if we passed on those plays with the same success (meaning not much) everyone would be *****ing about how KG was too pass happy and he should have run the ball more to kill clock.

                              We just can't run the ball with our issues up front. However, I liked the play calls. Run the ball and eat up clock and rely on your players to make plays. The worst thing that could happen is to go 3 and out and take up all of 30 seconds - giving the Cowboys more chances to come back.
