Game Grades: Giants at Panthers

The most disappointing home game in over a year. The good news? Things can't go much worse... I hope.

On with the grades.

Offense:

All that really needs to be said here is that the Giants defensive line dominated the Panthers offensive line the entire game. All of the other problems stem from that fact. Cam Newton was pressured the entire evening, causing his footwork to suffer. When his footwork suffers, his accuracy follows suit. Newton completed a little over 50% of his passes. That won't get it done against many teams in the NFL.

In short, terrible offensive line play equals a terrible performance by the offense, every time.

Offensive Grade: F

Defense:

Wide gaping holes in the middle of the field allowed Eli Manning to pick apart the Panthers seemingly at will. They did this early, they did this often. What is most troubling here is the lack of adjustments made to remedy the situation. Every team on the Panthers schedule now has a game tape on how to dismantle the Panthers defense. They better figure something out quickly.

Defensive Grade: F

Special Teams:

Joe Adams needs to learn to keep his eyes on the ball, not the guys running towards him. As promising as he may be once he is running, it does no good if he doesn't have the ball while doing so.

Special Teams Grade: F

Coaching:

For the second time this season the Panthers were unprepared, undisciplined, and unable to make adjustments. In other words, the coaching staff failed the team and the fans.

Coaching Grade: F

I'd bump the Offense to a D, they did have some good drives (even if 1 or 2 ended in interceptions due in most part to the O-line's ineptness) and we ran the ball more or less effectively before we had to go into catch-up mode. Breaking it down further, I'd give the O-line an F-, RBs a C+, Cam a C-, WR's a C for a total combined score of D. The D, Adams, and Coaching should all get F fuging minuses though.

On a side note, I'm growing real fuging weary of Adams taking every return to the crowded side, I don't think I've seen him angle toward the wide side of the field once. His inability to make an impact on ST I'd placing 90% of the blame on ST coaching. A lot of his problems seem to be poor coaching. His fumble seemed like just something that happens. Ball carriers get stripped occasionally. The second one was all on him though. His concentration was rattled.

That is what he is coached to do.

Yea, which is my point. I'm no football expert, but I don't understand it. If you have more room to work, isn't logical to assume better things will happen? Every time it seems he just runs to the crowd, hesitates behind a blocker, then gets tackled. My problem is with his coaching, not him.

I am thinking for the coaching staff an F is too generous.

Its hard when some of the same problems with the Fox era keep showing up in the Rivera era.

I agree F's all around.

I give them a D, that was the reigning Super Bowl champs. IMO the players didn't lose this on their own. The game plan wasn't there and the coaching staff gets the F. The players executed the game plan in place and it didn't work, especially on defense. Eli had all day to throw and if you're only going to rush 4, you'd better cover everyone. Neither happened and he torched the secondary.

I was really surprised that we didn't learn our lesson with the Bucs. I really hope they did this game and will add more pro set next week.
