Moving on here is what I saw from our defense because most of the film is on them because of what happened.
Well as I discussed in my other thread about our defense true to form we indeed did not change our game plan. Here is us using the over one on the Giants.
Here is them using it again with Eli in the Gun
On that play Godfrey was playing run and gave up the TD.
Alright so now we know what we were running lets discuss how the Giants countered it.
When manning saw Godfrey in the box he did two things. One was run a screen and the other was a quick pass to his WR on slant routes.
Now we countered this by playing a simple nickel man.
Well how did Eli counter this you ask? He attacked outside the tackle box and isolated the CB.
Here you can see that the LBs are out of the play and the only person stopping the back is our S. No a good thing...
Now we countered that with changing our Dline. Johnson line out wide to stop the attack but we stayed in the nickel. So what did the Eli do? Yup ran it to the inside.
Now time to focus on our Dline
To put it nicely the Giants Oline won the battle. To put it blunt, they woop our asses.
He we actually did blitz Manning with a LB cross fire. Guess what? No go...
Well thats all I have on the defense for now(not like it was not enough) but moving on to the offense.
The number one problem that night was Gary Williams. You are not going to have success when guys go free like this.
I could post some shots of JPP holding and sniffing out the zone or the Giants knowing we are running when we get into the single back set but really its not worth the time. Just know that there Dline sniffed out the zone on every play. It did not work and we did not adjust. The sad part is that Williams was not yanked. Cause he was the number one problem and the Giants exploited it.
Alright that all I have for now. I would say enjoy but there is not much joy in it(it was hard to watch again).
