Warning: This Offense is About to Make You Dizzy

Guys, Mark Sanchez is serial about getting this thing turned around.

How serial?  According to USA Today, super serial …. maybe … dare I say … super-duper serial.

And when this thing gets turned around, don’t forget that Mark Sanchez told you to take your Dramamine ahead of time.

“All those things, once they hit and they go right, this thing turns so quick it’ll make your head spin … I just know guys, talking to them on the plane last night, they know how close we are as well, and we all believe that. So that’s the most important thing.”

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Yes, Mark, that’s the important thing. Believing that you are close to becoming relevant, instead of actually already BEING relevant more than halfway through the season!!!

Mark, I’m already dizzy from watching this offense.  I’m dizzy because I have to huff paint fumes** make it through watching any of your games from the start to it’s inexorable and totally predictable end.

**That was a joke. Don’t be reduced to actually huffing paint fumes, of that I am super-serial.

Here's my assessment of our OL vis a vis Eli.  


"Protect Eli and he rewards you with Championships.


You don't protect Eli,  and he tosses the ball to the opponents"


It's really that simple.

repeat after me, the wins and completions are all the result of eli's talent and the loses and interceptions are the fault of everyone else, that should hold you until later then you can drink the kool aid along with the other fanatics.

Mr.F---

You are RIDICULOUS, PLEEEEEEEEEAZE !!!!!!

ELI is NOT the PROBLEM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he is the GREATEST QB the GIANTS - HAVE - EVER - HAD !!!!!!!

and STILL HAVE !!!!!

so SHUT UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the TRUTH---------

FOCUSing on REESE's POOR Decision-Making and LOUSY DRAFTing !!!!

REESE's INABILITY to Build and Maintain: ROSTER DEPTH  !!!

REESE's Countless BAD Free Agent Deals....

His POOR SAL-CAP Management....

REESE's PLAN was--

1. PASS-RUSH at ALL Cost,

2. We can't spend $ on LB's....

3. We can Find a New TE, EVERY Year....

4. WR CRUZ is NOT a #1 WR....

5. I can Re-Build the O-LINE in the,

4th - 5th - 6th & 7th Round's of the Draft...

6. by DRAFTing the MOST ATHLETIC Player,

i, Jerry Reese, can Build the Perfect FOOTBALL Player....

7. KillDrive is the PROBLEM !!!

8. the OFFENSE is BROKEN, QUICK Spend $$$$$$ on the DEFENSE...

LB Beason $6.5 Million

LB McClain $2.5 Million

CB DRC $7.25 Million

CB Thurman $3 Million

CB Prince's 2015 Option, is worth $6 Million......

....... than ADD the CONFUSION of,

27, One Year Contracts in the 2013 Season....

...... ReSulting in 24 New Players in for 2014.....

...... and the NYG's new OC, is a TE & QB Coach,

has NEVER been a OC !!!!

DEAD $$$$$$  =  $10.2 Million .......

C- BAAS $3.25 M

OG- SNEE $2.5 M

RB- David Wilson $1.8 M

CB- Corey Webster $1.25 M

TE- Brandon Myers $1.1 M

DT Marvin Austin $300,000

Wow, Your opinion of the Giants OL is a lot higher then mine. But we start to find out on Monday A win would be huge, I just don't think it will happen

So ti's time to lay it all at Eli's feet?  How about going back two years and re-reading all the "Elite Eli" posts.  So when Eli is running for his life 3 plays in on Monday, it is his poor decision making that is the cause.  How about putting a clock on the time he has to throw the ball.  It may be he doesn't have the time, or it may be that he isn't comfortable with the playbook, or maybe his receives and TEs stink and can't get open.  What's the difference, when in the end, the Giants all of a sudden look like they are reliving the Pesarcik era.

In the games I watched, Eli didn't have 3 seconds to throw the ball and was ducking a pass rush on each passing down. The line run blocked fine. If Eli gets time to throw he'll be fine too

JD Walton, the "veteran" you mention, was the worst graded center in all of football in his last full season, 3 years ago!  Will Beatty last year gave up 13 sacks, the most in the NFL, and that was BEFORE he broke his leg. And if they have to start Charles Brown, he was the fifth worst LT in football last year before he lost his starting job. 


What "skill players" are you referring to?  The Giants have 1 reliable WR and zero TEs, which makes it pretty hard to run a brand new West Coast offense.  It's going to take time, but please don't go blaming Eli for not being able to hit his crappy receivers in 5 preseason games into a brand new scheme.  This is the sort of frenzied criticism the idiots who sit around me in the stadium participate in...

@rico .....  Bingo!  That's why Eli is not elite. Then again, most QB's are not elite.

@hashburry I agree with most of what you are saying, my point is that things won't be as bad as most people think.

SNYGiants

@Jeff Comerford Agree, but that was not every down. The offense is predicated on having the ball come out fast. There were too many times for my liking that he had sufficient time to make a clean throw and did not.

I'll admit the talent could be better, but Eli is the one that needs to raise the level of play, because he can.  He needs to cut down on his mistakes. Too many times under pressure, he tries to force something that is not there. He still has not learned to throw the ball away and live to play another day. 


Agin, in preseason, and in practice, the line has looked better than pundits want to admit. My point - it's not good but it't not as bad as people think

@SNYGiants @Skookaloop ....  I don't know.... I seem to think Seattle and SF don't have a problem with roster depth or roster management. And you could probably say the same regarding a few other teams as well (Pats come to mind). I'm not a Patriots fan at all, but I see a lot of their games, and they are the one team in the NFL who seem to do the most with less. You can take away all of Brady's best receivers, and the guy can still single-handedly win a football game for them.

Like it or not, having an offensive line that is sieve like impacts confidence. I think it has impacted his mechanics - as he is throwing off of his back foot and he is waiting for his protection to break down.

If they could be more consistent, Eli's stats will improve. Part of that will involve reps with the same unit to develop chemistry

@SNYGiants wow "defending the offensive" line….


The OL has looked more like maitre ds this pre-season escorting opposing defenders to Eli.  Eli spent last season and this off season getting pile-driven into the turf.  When he knows he's got no protection he throws to ball to the opponent.  To me the offense is still broken and it all starts up front

@SNYGiants @Jeff Comerford I worry Eli's approach is fundamentally incompatible with a West Coast offense. The rhythms are all wrong. Snap, 1-2-3 steps, throw. No one immediately open? Dump it to the back. He's not open ? Roll out and locate a target on the run. Above all, DON'T hold the ball. DON'T stand tall in the pocket. Don't do anything Eli Manning has done well for 10 years in the NFL. Do the kind of stuff Alex Smith does well instead. 

I'm just not seeing how that's going to work.
