The lack of focus or the desire to play to the final whistle has plagued this team all year. Perry Fewell will need a great explanation why Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora and Chris Canty were dropping in pass coverage in the 4th quarter. Tuck has no business covering one of the NFC's best tight ends. Tuck, Canty and Osi are down hill players. They should not be asked to drop...they are not stand up linebackers regardless of how Fewell has them standing before the snap.
Can anyone say...PREVENT!
Carl Banks said it the best, "If it ain't broke...why break it!"
That's what the Giants did. They broke it! Everything they did so well in the 1st half...they did less in the third quarter and almost not at all in the 4th quarter.
The Giants did alot right today...but what they did wrong... beat them. Poor tackling(Terrell Thomas & Kenny Phillips) and the inability to FINISH TEAMS OFF! I almost feel like the Giants start to feel bad when they are winning so they go in to "Stupid mode"...missed tackles, interceptions thrown into double coverage, fumbles, and how about kicking the ball "directly" down the middle of the field to one of the most dangerous returners in the game with seconds left on the clock.
I am sure Matt Dodge is a very nice guy. He should be cut on Monday for his kick at the end of the game Sunday night. That kick was inexcusable! Are you kidding me...just kick the ball out of bounds and you live to play another set of downs. The Giants just can't finish teams off...week in and week out.
