The Skins defense had a couple of good passes defended but otherwise hardly put any pressure on Eli who missed Giants offense missed a couple of big passes that would have been game breakers. We beat ourselves, not the RGIII or the skins. I wouldn't get disheartened though.
    Giants should have gone with a healthy dose of run blitzes. Granted, that opens things up in the passing lanes, and he'd hit plays.....but damn, the Skins just ripped off running plays in 8 yard clips.....I'd rather take my chances with the ball in the air then defending 2nd and 2 pretty much all game.

    i woulda hit rg3 on every option until i beat him into submission and forced them to stop calling it. by doing that, itd also show other d's how to stop it and it could really hurt washingtons offense

    The defense isn't going to stop the Skins from scorng 17 points. Our offense should have been putting up 30 points. What the hell is going on here? I said if we lose something is wrong.

    yup.....good point...
    and i'm not complaining about them only giving up 17 points....that was great.....
    but you are right in that a more aggressive defensive approach would have served us even better.

    by time the second half came, the points scored by the offense should have forced the skins to rely more on the passing game. that is the recipe for success against them
