I am not going to be overly critical of Fox's decisions last night, but...

IMHO, on our last offensive series in regulation, Fox got back to that old, ultra conservative coaching from last year. Yes, it's Monday morning quarterbacking, but it seems to me like we should have called a couple of pass plays on that final series as opposed to letting Kasay attempt a lonf field goal in icy, cold and windy conditions. The Giants and everyone Panthers' fan just knew that Fox was going to call all runs. It would have been nice to call a play for Jarrett or one of our two talented tight ends (and Jake also could have checked for Smitty or Moose on the same type of play).

The Giants were certainly surprised when Jake found Jarrett (who made a decent catch considering the ball was just a tad behind him). You could see the surprise on the defensive back's face. We probably should have done more of that throughout the game, but definitely on that last drive.

But other than that last series, I really can't complain on the offensive side of the ball. Give it to Williams, and sprinkle in a little Smitty. It has been pretty successful.

Yeah there are alot of areas that can be second guessed the next day. I'm still not happy about how we finished the first half. We could've really put the Giants back against the wall if we could have just scored a FG there.

well if Smitty would not have gotten the holding call Kasay would have had a 43 yarder instead and this entire thread would be moot...

anyways...

I really wish we hadnt run the ball 3 times in a row. I would have been happy with just a quick 10 yard pass try...but good ol foxy loves being conservative.

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
