- The Giants defense has been very solid tonight.? I haven?t spent as much time on them in these updates because, frankly, the story of the night for me has been the offense?s struggles.? Besides a couple of too-easy passes to Santonio Holmes (including the touchdown), and a couple of special teams blunders (including a long kickoff return by Antonio Cromartie after he fumbled it), the main culprit has been the offense tonight.
- Dustin Keller is very good.? He?s the kind of safety net Eli Manning needs to have; the kind that the Giants front office did not provide him with this season?no Boss, no Burress, no Smith.? Someone being paid the way Eli is should make his receivers better, not require a certain type of receiver, but that is unfortunately not the case.
- The Giants may have to run the ball 100% of the time.? The combination of Brandon Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw and DJ Ware all looked great.? Jacobs looked like his old self, Bradshaw looked healthy, and Ware looks like he always does in the pre-season.? Looks like the depth chart still has Ware above Brown and Scott (in that order), as Ware was the only one to receive first team carries.
