Wow, just when I thought the team might be coming together the D is now falling apart....... it's a rebuilding year for sure.
we have no D, they can't stop, they can't get a 3 and out, they can't create turnovers, they generate zero pressure...
and with a weak, lethargic Offense that rarely scores, these 2 parts of a whole have shamed themselves and to another extent, us the fans...
it's time for b-ball, and that may be just as harsh, as the Nets, Bulls, Pacers and Heat are markedly better than my Knicks. Well, the Bulls and Pacers are kind of a in the same soup as the Knicks BUT where they grind and play gritty Defense, the Knicks try to out-shoot people.
dark years for the old school MYC sports teams.
Nice to see a 100+ yard run game
nice to see the D actually force a few, but clearly not enough, 3 and outs
I shall refer to "him" as 10 until he evens out his TD: INT ratio
brutal ending, defense is Bill Sheridan or Tim Lewis soft; Jacobs went off but to me this isn't to be expected every week especially depending on his health.
the Pick 6 was killer and now is the difference, the Winning Drive pick finished me off and put me into b-ball mode.
(and ironically the Knicks have an Offense but Defensively are lacking...)
The other Manning is reminiscent of pre-MVP SB wins. Honestly, if the running back fumbles and gets benched, how many INTs (and bad ones) do you allow before you see what Nassib has got? And now its the time for the mid-season slump?
I'm not excited by Nassib, at all.
Actually I wonder how far behind the curve Demontre is? Being the defense is/ was predicated upon the edge rushers getting to the QB and the unsavory fact that Tuck is old and slow bookended by a less than 100% JPP and above average Kiwi...I just want to see some aggressive energy and speed off the edge.
I am not willing to see the CB or S Blitz gamble fail and a receiver get hit on the Hot Route and torch us.
If we are to see "disciplined" gap-control defensive schemes we NEED speed, a ton of it.
back to 10, Gilbride and Double-R: commo is down, I say again, commo is down
but yes 10, is set in his ways and this must mean forcing the ball, overthrowing it and be just enough off-target to cause most of us diehards emotional fits
I honestly believe this team is an easy fix. They will be between 20 to 30 million under the cap next year and if they get a top 5 pick not only is it a top 5 in the first round they will have early picks in the rest of the rounds. I trust Reece will do very well with the money they can spend they can address a lot of the issues on the oline hopefully. I agree with zim too, we need linebackers. Enough is enough
