First win after a Cam INT

There are certain people here who think it is there place to blast anyone who comes close to saying something critical of their favorite player. Heck, the closest the Giants came to scoring was off a turnover--but the defense stuffed that. I think our defense won that game in the first quarter. The demoralized the Giants.. The rest was fluff. They deserve credit for taking the Giants out early. There is nothing wrong about thinking that, in fact, if you know football, you would have to agree. It was lopsided and obvious.

Or you could argue that it was the first drive of the second half that finally broke them.

17 points looks a lot more achievable that 24

But both sides did a great job.

4 of our TD drives were 60 yards or longer.

It was a team effort. Doesn't have to be one or the other

There is a difference between typing up things and standing by them, and returning to them when you are disproven. Versus simply pretending like said comments never happened and tucking tail and running off.

Honestly?  Ending the half the way we did, coming out and completely destroying their defense was pretty big.

 

That's not taking away from OUR defense.  They were fuging awesome.

I'll stop you right there... It doesn't matter how many points the offense "had to score to win the game.  What matters is how many points the offense did score.

 

How many points did the defense need to give up so our offense could win?

 

Neither your question nor mine are related at all to what happened in reality, because if we start playing what ifs we have no idea how the game would have gone.

 

You can claim we'd have won with 2 3 or 10 but you have no fuging clue.  Know why?  If all those scoring drives stall in one way or another, you give the Giants more time, and more hope.  Who knows what happens in that case.  Just because the defense pitched a shutout in a blowout doesn't mean it would have pitched a shutout in a close game.  We have no way of knowing.

The closest the Giants came to scoring was on a turnover.  And it does not matter how many points the offense scored if the Giants were shutout, as long as the number was one.

 

Anyone who watched this game would agree that the defense deflated the Giants early--the game was technically over in the first quarter.   Hell, the only time they nearly scored was after an interception.  We win the game if the offense played like it did vs. Buffalo and Seattle.  I can;t tell if your problem is due to a lack of math skills or football acumen. Either way, I prefer to argue with intelligent people who do not attack other's opinions as if their's is the only one.  That is a sign of a troll or a fool. Or both.

I never retracted comments--you just didn't understand what I repeatedly said--that I was concerned about Gettlemen's perspective.  The intelligent posters here understood that. Why do you thnk you were the only one getting upset and accusing me of having opinions?  It was because you did not understand the posts and you still don't.  I am sorry public schools failed you.

Grasping for straws brah, grasping for straws.  The offense played excellent, so did the defense.  It was a team effort.

 

And yes, I watched the game.

Who is attacking you?

I think if we won 7-0 or 14-0 nobody would give you poo.But we scored on 6 of our first 8 possessions including 5 TDs.

So to say the defense won the game is being silly.

Since you have superior football acumen to the rest of us answer this, what effects an offense's play calling more? Being down 7 points or 30 points?

Also if the game was only 7-0 then suddenly game pressure influences the game.

Just deal with it being a team win

Sure you could.  I was just making a positive statement about the defense--I have never seen an NFL performance so dominant.  I think they fed the offense and maybe they gave Shula the balls he needed to turn Cam loose.  However, the defense let the Giants know in the first quarter that they were not going anywhere. 

 

The others are trolling me--they think I am not entitled to an opinion because my posts hurt their feelings.

One of the things you rambled on and on about was a quote from Gettleman about winning. When I provided you with the actual context from said quote, you never mentioned it again or even acknowledged it. How strange.

If you want people to respect your "opinions", start by standing by them.

Ah yes, instead of actually trying to man up and backup all that drivel you spewed, you resort to insults.

So not only are you a coward, you are a hypocrite. Dually noted.

 

When you accuse me of not manning up, are you typing it on the internet?  And you call me a hypocrite and a coward?  Bahahaahaa.  That is the saddest thing I have ever read, but funny.  Cyber Rambo.
