The one person that cost us this game?

I've been complaining about Trgo's D for years. This stuff is nothing new. When the O gt back into the play not to lose mode.....it was over.

I agree. The team was more conservative than Sarah Palin last night on both offense and defense. It reminded me to the worst times under John Fox and friends.

Steve Smith's Wrestlemania moment took the team out of game-winning field goal range. He was pissed because the D broke up his play right before then and trash talked him afterward.

Mike Trgovac...

How hard is it to stop a HB draw (by a backup HB even) out of the shotgun formation that you KNOW is coming?

How hard is it to man up on a Tight End?

How hard is it to get your corners on the actual line of scrimmage and out of a soft zone against SUB-PAR Wide Receivers?

We are in real trouble if Fox doesn't do something about the defensive schemes/playcalling....

This will be my only post about last night's game... There are no excuses for how our defense played and were coached last night...

I'll give the Giants credit for the win, and for being professional and hospitable, but we are clearly the better team, and as much as I hate to say it, we were outcoached in all phases.. especially defense..

When you are missing Kemo and they have a dominant run game you can't put your DBs in a position to overrun plays. They were in permanant "lets stop the run" mode and it burnt us a few times but I would rather put Eli in a position where he has to make big plays rather than let them methodically drive down the field with the run.

Honestly, we let them do whatever they wanted.. We couldn't stop them from imposing their will, especially in the second half...

Yeah, I called the HB draw before they ran it. Watching the Giants is sometimes very much like looking in the mriror.

I was thinking the exact same things...

If I were anyone on our front 7, I would be extremely pissed at what we allowed Derrick Ward to do to us...

IMHO what cost us the game was not going for it on 4th and 3 at midfield during overtime. We had just stopped the Giants; they punted to us (I was surprised the D stopped them). We have the ball at midfield on 4th and 3. Convert, and we likely get another shot at a field goal at least. I looked at my buddy and said, "We need to go for it here...send a statement...we WANT this win. Our defense is done. If the Giants get the ball back, it's over!"

"Have a little faith," he said.

I didn't.

You know how yesterday New England pounded the Cardinals and didn't stop, classless maybe, unsportsmanlike I don't think so.

You play to win, not play to not lose, you go for the jugular and then decapitate the SOB.

I wish our defense had one ounce of the heart you see in guys like Ray Lewis or Mike Vrabel or Brian Dawkins.

I miss Mike Minter....

As soon as we went 3 and out in our only possession in overtime, I knew that it was over. We just couldn't stop them when we had to.

I blame the loss on Kemo, no way he should have gone down with an ankle injury at this point in the season. Thanks to his fat, useless, run stuffing, block consuming ass we had OG's getting to the second level of the defense and taking would be tacklers out of the play.

What a piece of poo....

Get real people, it's a team game, it was a team loss, but this is still one of the best TEAMS in the NFC and in the league.
