WEEK 71 – Off A Cliff

Seahawks 36, Giants 25

Totally unacceptable. A football team is like a car. If one part of it isn’t working, the entire car has a problem. This week, the tires were popped, the oil was low, even the windshield wipers weren’t working. The Giants’ offensive line is already shaky enough at full strength, but the loss of David Baas and then Chris Snee turned it into a sieve which was exacerbated by the fact that Brandon Jacobs was also out. But Seattle is a really, really bad football team. That doesn’t play well on the road. And has a shitty quarterback. And a backup QB that looks like Jared Leto.

There’s no way in hell the Giants should have lost unless they completely gave it away. That’s exactly what they did. I love Cruz and he made an amazing play on his touchdown but there’s no way you can fumble deep in your own territory. The Seahawks were mentally on the plane home already. That play gave them new life along with the safety (barely) of D.J. Ware. Missing Tuck again, the quarterbacks were given waaaaaaaaaaay too much time to operate. Also, how many times are the opponents going to go no huddle before we stop it?

It’s frustrating that Eli can move the ball so effortlessly at times when he really needs to but not when it’s the second quarter. I don’t know if it’s him, the entire team, or the playcalling, but they need to play like every drive is a game-winning drive. It’s OK to play one bad game, but I’m afraid it’s becoming a trend and that’s a problem. It’s a problem when you barely beat shitty teams and it’s a major problem when you lose to them.
