    Special Teams On Notice, Give Eli The Short Field

    We know Eli can move the Offense " Coast To Coast " Heck, Victor Cruz can do it on one play. With a short field, He'll be Deadly.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Giants' special teams a few years ago was horrific. The last couple of years it has been pretty decent. After the Philly thing, it seem as though the focus was to get better on special teams and I see the improvement. I believe this year it will continue to improve. I am expecting big things from the special teams unit this year.

    And the bad snaps, and how his leg was just able to out kick the coverage.

    Yes. Even with the spotty tackling , the special teams unit has improved significantly (In My Opinion).

    The big plays against the unit seems to be getting smaller. (Credit Weatherford)

    They have created turnovers. Matter of fact, a special teams turnover by the forty-niners propelled them into the Superbowl.

    In summary, the special teams play seems to be on an upswing.

    I agree, I loved our ST last year, mainly because of Weatherford, that guy played a huge role in our SB win.

    I will say however, that our return game hasn't been the same since Hixon used to return them.
