    I am no Gilbride hater....I actually like the guy

    but a check down route or two would be a wise thing to implement when observing an O line performing the way this line has in recent games
    Is it just me, or have the Giants been running the offense with just 1 back about 70% of the time?
    Hynoski's healthy correct?

    There is nothing wrong with this offensive scheme....Its won us 2 superbowls and has been one of the most electrifying offenses in the NFL for several seasons whether is was running the ball or throwing in the air. The problem with our offense is execution. We have receivers that drop easy passes or lose contraction of where the out of bounds is in the endzone. We have a running back that constantly fumbles and a rookie runningback that is no help in the passing game. We have all these one-dimensional players surrounding Eli Manning. We have no 3rd receiver or tight end, the interior of our offensive line is a mess and Bradshaw bad feet is starting to slow him down.

    What went wrong:

    No replacement for Manningham and Ballard this season.

    Offensive line hasn't been addressed, and we have some free agent busts in Baas and Boothe.

    Running back was finally addressed after the departure of Jacobs, but we did not find a pro-ready rookie...we sat back in draft day sealing our fate.

    Its one man who made these mistakes...and you know who it is. Its not the coaching staff, its the players failing to execute.

    We won the Superbowl in spite of our glaring weaknesses because we had some players really step up at an elite level...Eli, Cruz, JPP.

    We went backwards this year, replacement for jacobs, manningham, and ballard turned out to be busts so far.

A few poor games because of this miserable offense and now even Giants fans are doubting him? Talk about wishy-washy fans.... it was only a couple of weeks ago everyone was praising his name.


    Kevin Gilbride(while he's a good OC for the most part) calls some of the most predictable, asinine play calling I have ever seen. He runs it on 1st down, 2nd down and then we're forced to throw it on 3rd down.... Geeee well isn't that just tailed made for success? It's no wonder we have one of the WORST red zone offenses in the NFL. (We are the 27th red zone scoring offense)

    Add on that Tom Coughlin holds his loyalty to a washed up once upon a time great O-linemen who now couldn't block a statue if it fell on him. We also have one of the most anemic run games in the league because we hold our loyalty to a guy with 17 foot procedures on each foot and thus has speed comparable to that everyone claimed Jacobs had...or didn't have.



    We have a top 5 receiver that cannot stay or get healthy for the life of him and thus has SERIOUSLY hindered this offense. We have a QB who isn't predominant on targeting his brand name receivers.

    We have a STUD top 10 receiver that can't a catch a pass even if it's a bread basket one over the shoulder for a TD. As great as Cruz is and he is GREAT he struggles sometimes with concentration and or focus.



    If Eli had an offense like GB, or NE, N.O. or the "Peyton offense" (where he can do what he wants when he wants) Eli would have 20 TD's already or damn close to it and less TD's I guaran-damn-tee you that.


    When was the last time you saw us run the no huddle to get a rhythm going? Hell when was the last time you saw us run the no huddle when we were down this season? About as rare as a two dollar bill.




    Few games where he plays poorly(Rodgers, Brady, Peyton, Brees are all exempt from their bad games I guess?) and he's not longer elite. Lol, OK. . .


    Our offense is not made for a QB to have sexy stats. We run, run, run even when the run is getting 0-3 yards all game. We have an EXTREMELY predictable offense. Our offense is predicated on the receivers beating their man. It's not easy to throw on 3rd down all the time when the offense knows you're going to throw. We very RARELY throw it in the red zone.(We have one of the worst red zone offenses in the league because we run it on 1st and 2nd down and then we're forced to throw on 3rd) There's no play action because there's zero threat of a run. The pass protection has been atrocious at times and most recently during this "poor" stretch. Victor Cruz has gone m.i.a. unless he's dropping a breadbasket TD catch. Nicks isn't healthy and hasn't been all season, thus he's been invisible. Martellus Bennett Has a Torn Knee Capsule Bruised ACL & PCL(suffered in week 5 vs Browns).

    Eli has made some poor decisions the past few weeks and it's mainly because of atrocious O-line play and a struggling receiving corps to boot. The O-line ever since Diehl has returned has been abysmal...Snee, Baas all of them pretty much. Diehl allowed 3 sacks alone Sunday.

    Eli trying to make a play makes a bad decision and pays for it.
    i am a big eli guy, but his throws have been off lately. a lot of this slump is on him. no, he hasnt gotten much help like cruz dropping TDs, bennett doing his best manningham impression to not keep his feet in for TDs. that being said, he is forcing things when he is pressured, and it looks like he's letting the poor protection ftustration get to him and lead him into dumb mistakes.

    that being said i agree with your points on the red zone offense. so predictable, and they always get into a tough 3rd down and then a tynes kick.

    i know nicks is banged up but why he doesnt see a ton of throws in the red zone idk, or even bennett for that matter because he can win balls on size alone. it drives me crazy how KG can call some nice plays to get down the field with the pass, and then he tries some garbage "power runs' inside the 20 to score. and they are always the same formations and results.

    agree with this too.

    kills me how little we utilize a checkdown. other QBs LIVE off of checkdowns when their first options arent there and it helps their offense immensely. (brees, ryan).

    i wish we could see wilson more for this reason, because i think he can be dangerous in space, but he had terrible drops early in the season and i think the coaches still havent gained confidence in him in that regard,

    he deserves the chance. the steelers game the other night, more than a few times ben would check to rb who was just sitting in open space and I kept thinking with Wilsons acceleration it would be at the very least a 5 yard play.... AT LEAST

    yep. i love the way brees and the saints use sproles. not the best runnning team, so they design simple short passes for sproles and send him as a checkdown so if brees has nothing downfield, he can get some easy yardage on early downs. i think it has been even more ffective than their run game.
