what i thought was most alarming was the times the giants actually did score, they did it crazy fast:
3 plays 80 yards 1:05
8 plays 80 yards 3:11
7 plays 90 yards 3:23
9 plays 80 yards 1:39
the first was the broken coverage to cruz, and the last was garbage time while playing prevent defense, but was there anything yall noticed on the middle two drives as to why the giants scored so easily?
also, gotta do a better job of turning points into turnovers. yall forced 3 on their first 3 drives and only had 6 points.
good win guys
That's not hate, that's a good question.
It's the blind hate that gets me. I know people will hate on Dallas, I personally hate on the other really popular sports teams, Duke, Lakers , Alabama etc. But I won't hate blindly. These dude's try to turn everything into a negative and never give credit. Then try to call out anyone who's positive as 'delusional' or 'biased' when that's exactly what they're doing. Everyone else can be happy about their first win but Dallas fans shouldn't because they only won by 5 after alot of turnovers?
How many times you hear "Man the Giants suck. They only won by 4 because of Dezs pinky after Romo threw 4 picks and they had a 23-0 lead
?" last year after their w in Dallas? That mess is only said about Dallas.
Saints fans can be happy when they only won because Matt Ryans RB dropped a touchdown? Seahawks fans can be happy winning by 5 after the Panthers only scored one TD? Pats fans can be happy when they only won on a last second field goal against the Bills? Jets fans can be happy when they only won because of a dumb penalty?
Teams always win "only because" of various reasons. What matters is the final scoreboard. If the scrip was flipped ans,and Dallas had 6 turnovers and lost the same way there would've been endless Romo memes and forecasts of doom and gloom for Dallas. I mean honestly, think about how NT/Twitter /Espn would be right now if that was the Cowboys with the turnovers. Promise you won't hear about this game from the Giants perspective after their next game. People still bring up Romo's game In Chicago.
Dudes act like when we win we can't get excited or we predicting Superbowl victories. Find me one Dallas fan on here that said Superbowl after that W. Seahawks, Lions, Vikings fans saying we've been mediocre for the last decade plus when they wish they could've had some of the success we've had in our history? How you going to call my team mediocre because of 15 years when your team has been mediocre for 60+? It's ridiculous
That's hate. Your question was just a question. Wish others took the approach you just did. Repped.
I'm not worried about the O. The D won't force 6 turnovers every game and the O won't play that bad. Waters comes next week. That's a huge boost to an Oline that actually played good for the most part, excluding the guy Waters will be playing. Plus Dez won't b held to 20 yards zero TDs every game. A better push in the Oline and Dez cooking = forcing more Turnovers into Touchdowns and more points scored overall.
I'm not a Defensive coordinator so I'm not going to act like I know what was wrong with the D. But from what I've heard the Tampa 2 is all about bending but not breaking. Teams will walk up the field fast when there's no pass rush. But with one of the greatest pass rushers of all time in d Ware and with another good pass rusher in Spencer coming back I'm not going to stress over that too much. One Td drive by them was essentially garbage time and another saw an absolutely horrible angle taken by a Vet safety like you said. Obviously we don't know how those drives would've turned put if it wasn't for those happenings but I'm fine with two quick scoring drives by the opposition if the scheme allowing that also can consistently force turnovers.
I do now the D stopped them twice in the end zone including a goal line stand that started at the one. They also came up with a clutch stop and then a T.O-Touchdown to win the game. This D is only going to get better as the team gets healthy and guys get more accustomed to playing in the system.
I mean, I think everyone would agree that Romo wasn't himself because of that hit, Dez was schemed out of the game and that the O played bad. With all that being the case we still had the second highest scoring game of the week.
I like that.Edited by Blackboyfly - 9/8/13 at 10:58pm
