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.

I blame the huddlers that were too f*cking cocky about this game. All week I kept reading posts that IMO, were way too cocky for the situation. Keep your mouth shut and let the actions speak for themselves. PLease Please, the game agianst the Saints, It would be nice if you don't smack talk with reagard to victory. Talk sh*t about the saints all you want, but DO NOT gaurantee victories as I saw quite a bit this past week


Im sorry- I forgot its us who straps up and plays the game. How dare us fans have confidence in our team.

I will be sure to be a cowering little bitch this week- just for you!

What kind of ankle injury are we talking about?

While I don't think we lost because of the huddlers, I do agree with your sentiments that they were getting overconfident.

Hell, we haven't even won our division, and i'm seeing "GIANTS WON'T BEAT US IN NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME"

WTF is this crap?


They need to be worried about the Saints now.

I haven't been a Trg fan since Del Rio left. He still has not learned you cannot let a top rate QB have all day in the pocket to pick apart the DBs. Our front 4 did not consistently apply pressure to Eli, especially in passing situations. We should have brought more pressure (people) and forced him to make a decision vs. waiting for him to find a seam in our zone. The excuse used to be that our CBs were not good enough in man-man coverage. We just gave Gamble a fat contract and Lucas is not cheap either. Marshall is more than adequate as the 3rd CB. Harris and Godfrey can lay-the-wood. Why not play more man and force the WRs to beat us vs. letting Eli pick us apart.

Bring back Jack!

Really everyone knew our D was gonna give up some points last night but the thing that killed us the most was Fox being conservative in the first half when we jumped ahead and not letting Jake win the game for us in the 4th QT. Our Offense had to do exactly what it has been doing for the last two weeks. Out scoring teams by margins of 30+ but fox didnt let us do that. I really dont know if we will win any tight games for that reason. Yea it works when you dont have talent but sometimes you have to let the guys keep there mo.

I blame no one. I saw the Panthers play their best game of the season... in the first half.

Then the team started passing when running would do, failing to stop Eli from moving up the field, and executing poorly across the board. It was a deserved loss. It was going to be an ugly outcome regardless by the 2:00 mark, and now Carolina has a golden opportunity to pick apart the tapes and improve, improve, improve.

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?........



Escpecially when the Giants ran that play like 10 times last week against the cowboys and alread several times against the Panthers last night.

What also gets me is that the last two weeks the Eagles and Cowboys played man coverage and brought extra pass rushers on every play. It always seems like Trgovac doesnt like to look at or do what others teams have done to opponents that has worked. The Giants offense sucked the last weeks cause of that strategy, yet it appeared to me the Panthers Defense decides to approach the game differently.

Oh well. There is more that irked me about the game last night, but if the Panthers can win next weekend it makes last nights lose not that bad.
