ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo
Giants are 1st team in NFL history to lose first 2 games of season despite leading by 10 or more points in 4th quarter of each game (ELIAS).
After NE Patriots scored 17 straight points on our "lights out" defense, Eli Manning led NY Giants offense downfield and methodically ate the clock to give our "lights out" defense a much needed rest. After their rest, they were able to step up their play and then Eli Manning led our offense on another methodical drive that ate the clock.
Look at the play again, it is a triangle of receivers in the end zone and Hakeem gets position and jumps for the ball. The play executed perfectly and carried out exactly how it was supposed to be carried out.
Our offense has had a lot of gaffes and this season no matter how we look at it, the main reason we didn't make the playoffs is because Eli Manning made some bad decisions in key situation, season changing situations. The throw late in the game against Philadelphia that took us out of Tynes range was huge in the how the division played out. Granted, our defense was horrible and we had some miserable play on offense but if Eli Manning had performed the way he did in 2011 or just in the 4th quarter the way he did in 2011, then we make the playoffs.
Now, lets hear from you, how Aaron Rodgers is a more successful post season QB than Eli Manning.
