  • Giants' Links: Why Has Big Blue's Passing Game Been Grounded?

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

    Excerpt: ?The Giants' passing game started with so much promise in Dallas on opening night. Eli Manning threw for 450 yards. Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle each had 100-yard receiving games.

    Cruz had three touchdowns. Tight end Brandon Myers had a team-high seven receptions.

    Turns out that was the high-water mark and as Week 14 approaches, the Giants' passing game, which is ranked 18th in the NFL (233.1 ypg), remains a work in progress. That doesnít bode well heading into Sunday's game against a high-tech Chargers offense,

    The trouble started along the offensive line, where injuries robbed the unit of continuity and chemistry. There have been sixth different starting configurations. Manning has been sacked a career-high 31 times and thrown 18 interceptions with four games remaining.

    Left tackle Will Beatty has allowed a team-high 10 sacks.

    Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has had a nightmare season. He has no touchdowns and has been party to some bizarre moments. Sometimes, the opportunities haven't been there for him to make plays. Other times, Nicks hasnít taken advantage of them.

    Tight end Brandon Myers, who has shown signs of life in the past two games, has largely been a disappointment.

    As the Giants begin to turn their attention to next season, what do you think is the biggest problem that needs fixing for the passing game to get back on course?" Read more...

    Offensive line was horrible / little better now but still not where it needs to be.
    Nicks again another season where he was not healthy and couldn't make the plays he needed to.
    Randle and Jernigan are not on the same page with Eli.
    Cruz getting triple covered with Nicks no longer a threat and Jernigan couldn't beat my wife at the line of scrimmage.

    Wow! I had no idea that Eli has already been sacked 31 times... and Beatty has allowed 10 of them. I hate when players dissappear after a contract. It is probably the worst o-line Eli has had as a Giant. It's like we're in the Dave Brown era again.

    This offseason we need to really focus on getting the talent level up on o-line and fixing the pass rush.

    3) Nicks and TE position are not dependable

    ...in that order
    ...........^ This ^, in no particular order.

    Didn't matter who was calling plays or what plays were called.

    We could have really destroyed them through the air off of play action. We didn't utilize the play action enough to catch them off guard. With a strong running performance and our red zone woes, it would of been the perfect game for that.

    I didn't see much of the deep bombs that we're accustomed of seeing, which I'm not complaining, but again..play action could of killed them.
    I agree

    I'm starting to feel that as long as TC is here we will also see Gilbride along with Eli holding each other hands and joined at the hip...

    No they aren't, it's really sad.

    I don't think they will be this bad again, at least not in the Eli/TC era. If they are that's a damn shame.

    We didn't really throw a lot of deep passes however, that was actually really shocking because their pass defense is very suspect. I would of hoped we would catch them off play action and we didn't.

    You're right though, I forgot it was somewhat balanced, but it sure didn't look like it.

    You know I'm right!!! Anyway, we barely passed in the Dallas game at all..which hurt us.
    No deep, intermediate, or short passes were heavily utilized..not even in PA scenarios where we could have killed them.
    30 attempts.....thats not "barely".....

    you know I'm right...ha

    No doubt, better coaching would help this team. We obviously need some better talent, but coaching can get you over the hump and focus on your strengths. We certainly don't do that.

    Beatty is the biggest problem, he has to go. So does Reese for giving him that contract. Anyone watched this week's NFC playbook on NFL channel? They really exposed Beatty and the clips they used from the Skins' game were pretty embarrassing and pathetic.
