    Giants' Defense No Match for RGIII and Redskins

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

    Excerpt: "The Giants insisted the second time around would be different. That after surrendering 248 rushing yards to Robert Griffin III and company in their Week 7 meeting, they were prepared to slow down the Redskins’ unique read-option offense.

    For the first half Monday night, the defense played the part. Aided by the offense’s ability to dominate the time of possession – a 20:32 to 9:28 advantage — the Giants held the Redskins to 57 rushing yards, 156 overall, and 10 points at the half.

    But in the second half, though the Giants held the Redskins to just seven points, the unit couldn’t get off the field for minutes at a time, especially when it mattered most down the stretch as the Redskins pounded 150 yards after halftime. The Redskins extended crucial drives, including the final possession that swallowed the final 3:51 to keep the Giants offense off the field, on the way to a 17-16 comeback win at FedEx Field.

    Lol. Yeah it was the defenses fault. The only stat that matters are points and holding that hot offense down to 17 points should have been good enough to win. They held RG3 to 163 yards passing. He had one really good run that didn't hurt them because a play it two later they forced a fumble. Washington also scored a TD on a fluke play. The Giants defense did not have a single penalty called against them last night. This game was lost by the offense.

    It was a team loss.

    THere was no phase that comported themselves proudly last night. If you believe the defense did then you must not think very much of the defense.

    But playcalling, coaching, special teams and the overall offense were just as guilty if not moreso in some cases.

    A better title would have been the "offense was no match for the officals". Too many drive killing penalties that resulted in FG attempts & punts. One drive they managed to score a TD in 2nd quarter they had to overcome 4 freeking penalties to boot. You can't expect to win when you keep beating yourself. End of story.

    Was the defense perfect? No. Where they the main reason for the loss? No. The offense didn't do their job last night. The defense held a high scoring offense to 17 points and did not have a single penalty called on them. The offense didn't show up last night again.

    WHat jakegibbs said. You can't shoot yourself in the foot like that. I love Tynes, but he has scored too many points this season already.
