  • Am I the only one that thought the defense did ok considering who they played?

    The Green Bay Packers are the highest scoring offense in the NFL. They have a QB who is playing a season better than maybe even Brady did in 2007.

    They didn't give up 7 on the interception, and the refs blew the call on that 1 Green Bay TD. Now they where in field goal range so I'll put 3 on the defense, but 4 on the refs.

    So that's 27 points I put on the defense. Against that team with all the people they have out I think the defense played well.

    The last drive was tough, but a minute left for a QB that is changing the game against a tired defense with rookies and guys just signed was not the best place for them to be in.

    I'm not putting all the blame on the offense, but when you play a team like Green Bay you can have 0 mistakes and you have to take advantage of when the defense did force a punt which they did do tonight.

    I hope next week if the defense forces punts the offense turns them into TD's.

    I thought they played well but that last drive was inexcusable... and I saw a tweet that Rodgers said if the packers didnt get a lot of yards on their first play on the last drive, they would have ran it out for overtime........... wow.............

      Yeesh, I dunno. The packers receivers dropped a lot of easy catches, it could have been much worse. I don't remember if they ended up scoring on those drives anyway though. At least we played great run defense and the pass rush was certainly an improvement over last week.

          Yeah, but I mean a rookie LB took a shot and almost made a great play. Not like Williams knew what Rogers was thinking. Then Rogers hit Nelson and he beat a guy that they just got on the team.

            That last drive was unacceptable...they did play good...better than expected....but that last drive was brutal....almost like they weren't even on the field.

              We were very fortunate today with all the dropped passes by GB. too many GB receivers were wide open (again). They still scored 38 points, but easily could have been much more.




              Allowing the Packers to go straight down the field in the final minute afterour Offense had just scored a big last minute TD with a 2 point conversion was inexcusable.




              If our defense can step up, we can win this thing.

                  In the game day thread, with the Giants up 17-14 midway through the 2nd - Green Bay was driving and you had said if we lose this game ,it's on the offense.

                  So youre taking 11 points of the board for the D - that's generous to say the least.

                    Don't forget the blown call on the TD or the extremely ticky tack penalty on Williams while you are at it. I believe both where on 3rd downs.

                      Yeah, that is right. When you have your defense force the #1 offense to punt 3 times and get a TO in the 1st half its on the offense for not putting up enough points against one of the worse defenses in the league. The game was not lost on that last drive alone.

                      Do you dispute those 11 points? How could you? You know that was a bad call and 7 where off the pick.

                            Now what if the offense gave them a bigger lead to work with when they did force Green Bay to punt? Just saying that the game might be played different with a bigger lead. We will never know.

                              All of those nice thoughts do not matter anymore to this team. They have character issues on this team and they will not be taken care of by playing "ok". If your team can't stop any team in front of you with a W on the line, that team sux. Its all about attitude, a very poor one.
