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

(for the sake of discussion, 'both' isn't allowed as a response; pick one)


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.

i'll add this eli was only sacked 4 times in the first two weeks. he was sacked 4 times the first quarter against us. so maybe their offensive line isnt completely terrible. or maybe they are i don't know. we were like hungry wolves out there today, it was so much fun to watch.

And the Giants have got blown out in all 3 of their games. It hasn't been close. 

 

36-31 isn't close?

 

41-23 in week two.  It was against Peyton Manning and our MOV was more than double.

It showed me that Rivera wants to keep his job. We should have won this game and we did.
