Did we really play that well or are the Giants just that bad?

A typical Ron Rivera to get us of his ass for a week or two. 2 weeks lose by same bullshit we will be calling for head again. And not the good kind.

I'm leaning about 60% on we played well anchored by a dominant defensive front facing a bad offensive line and an offense more tailored for Cam's talents against an average Giants-D.  It felt good but we're 1-2.  Still need to keep pounding (the Giants are struggling mightily in the trenches)

Well, lets see...the Giants came into the game # 1 in the NFL in passing offense, averaging 390 yards a game.

 

Today they got 90.

 

Nuff said???

i don't care how sloppily they played. most of the players on that team have superbowl rings and we spanked that ass anyway.

 

statement game by the panthers.

sorry. couldn't help it.

 

tbh, tho, jury is still out. until proven otherwise, this game is an anomaly...an abberation. i'm just not a believer that what we saw today is what we can expect later.

 

the giants are really bad right now, tho. that team is a mess. it was like watching us from the outside.

We played great and learned some things but the Giants are really, really bad. Not getting my hopes up yet, Arizona is a must-win

I have my own podcast that I've been doing for the last year and a half. I've said for the last couple weeks that the Giants just aren't that good.

Now after saying that, in my watching of how the panthers and giants played and lost I said that the Giants matchup was in their favor. Meaning, the giants appeared that they could slow our rush in order to carve up the secondary.

Our LBs would have to cover the pass too much to help stop the run or rush the passer.

On offense the panthers line could not protect against the Giants front 4 with cam dropping back and passing.

The only caveat that I offered as the only way the cats could win this thing was to get constant pressure by the front 4 and to take the blinders off of our best player, Cam.

My Caveat was the deciding factor. We flipped the tables on the giants. We nullified their strengths and capitalized on their weaknesses. This is what good teams do.

The giants are not Super Bowl contenders but they are far from being garbage. The panthers executed in a way that I did not think, and that they had not shown they could do.

Long answer short, the Panthers completely dismantled a competent and worthy opponent. Rejoice this is the statement victory we have been yearning for.

Btw what the hell happened to the Giants? How did they get so terrible so fast? The only key player they really lost was Osi. Eli is still QB, same coaching staff, this is pretty much the same team that won a SB a couple years back. What happened exactly? Its like they come out of nowhere and all of a sudden they are the Jaguars 2.0 for no apparent reason.
