    We lost because of poor execution....period.

    The gameplan was ball control to keep Griffen off the field, as we had NO answer for him on defense. The staff knew it long before the game started.

    This is a very smart decision based on that fact. Dropped balls, stupid penalties and errant passes cost us this game. Those are all execution issues. Execute the gameplan, Giants win easily. The Giants didn't.

    That being said.....Gilbride doesn't get off the hook for this loss either. Question for you, Kev: If I know that on 2nd and 10 that we will run a handoff to AB up the middle EVERY TIME.....don't you think the Redskins knew too? Yeah.....that will be the reason why it didn't work EVERY TIME!!

    In hindsight....the way the Giants beat Griffen is to air it out and outscore them.

    The offensive players cost them the game. Only the offense and special teams where called for penalties. The defense and coaches where not. They had no answer for RG3? He did not have a great night. He had 163 yards passing and 72 yards rushing. That is good enough to win when you hold him to those numbers. Remember 46 of those rushing yards came on a single play where the very next play the defense caused a fumble so it didn't hurt them. Oh, that turnover was turned into another field goal and the only points of the second half for the Giants. The Giants lost because they had the ball in scoring position 5 times and scored 1 TD, kicked 4 field goals, and missed 1 of them.

    Our red zone offense is beyond pathetic, we can not score touchdowns to save our lives

    The defensive stats are misleading since we DID win TOP. The defenses ONLY way of stopping them was getting turnovers....otherwise they sliced us up. Let's not be crazy and say the defense was in any way shape or form GREAT in this game.

    The Redskins were lucky to win that game. They had a miracle fumble and we missed a field goal.

    The defense only had one turnover and there was a fluke TD scored in this game. They where probably the hottest offense in the league and where held to 17 points, a fluke TD as part of that 17, and RG3 did not put up super human stats as the media would like us all to believe. You are right, they won the TOP. Thats what makes it so sad the only scored 16 points.

    You argue as if I'm Saying the defense lost this game for us....I'm not. But it was TOP that kept the Griffen from padding the stats. TOP is what kept us in the game. Nothing else sure did.

    The defense wasn't perfect, but in the first half, when the offense was controlling the clock, the defense was also stopping Washington. The problem is the Giants offense did not execute in scoring position. They went in the half with a 3 point lead and had the ball almost the entire first half. That is how you lose a game. The second half should have started with them having at least a two score lead and getting the kickoff.

    The defense gave up 7.1 yards a play and 6.7 yards a rush and allowed Washington to hold the ball for 17+ minutes in the second half and for over 10 minutes in the 4Q alone. Hardly a great day at the office for them.

    Where the Giants D failed was in allowing Griffin to convert First Downs time after time dude...... what they held him to only distorts the picture, giving the Defensive play a false look of success!
    Holding teams on third down has been the Defense's bugaboo all season.
    Eli was 20/33 for 280 with a TD and zero INT's.....where are all these errant passes people are talking about?
    Cruz had a 100 yds receiving.....Bradshaw 100 yds rushing....the numbers of the game, and our eyes tell the story of what was to blame for this loss.........Gilbrides playcalling, penalties, and the D allowing the Redskins to convert first downs.
    Look at the game again and count how many times Gilbride called for the delayed draw up the middle for no gain when Eli was having a good throwing day. Don't tell me it wasn't the playcalling that takes a lions share of the blame here, because it most definitely does!
