Default The Breakdown

My breakdown.

1-10 on 3rd downs. That is officially complete garbage.

3rd Quarter. 8:52 mark. 14-9 game. Move the ball to the Giants 43. Penalty Falst Start. Ball on the Giants 48. Get the first down, Penalty, Personal Foul. ball on the Steelers 47. 53 yard TD pass, Penalty, Holding, No TD, ball moved to the Steelers 37. Eventually punt. Had a chance to put them out of the game and blew it.

4th quarter up 14-9. 4th and 6 Giants have the ball on the Steelers 34 yard line. 30 yard pass play to Toomer. Gay blows the coverage. No pressure on Manning. Leads to a field goal instead of us having the ball.

4th quarter. up 14-12, ball on our 30. 3 and out, including another sack. Long snap over the head. Safety. Pathetic offensive drive.

0-4 on 4th down. Just Sad.

Ben 4 INTs, including the last prayer ball. That equals a loss almost every time.

Gave up 5 sacks. Horrible, Ben held onto the ball too long on at least 2 of them.

Defense, 0 Sacks. Not good.

Defense, 0 turnovers. Not good enough.

Washington, 1 catch. Yes for a TD but it was still, only 1 catch.

Ward, only 3 catches. That won't win it for us.

8 penalties for 59 yards. Unacceptable.

Them's the facts.

The only bright spot was the D. They did a good job containing B. Jacobs and the Giants running game. I thought they could have gotten a little more pressure on Eli, because we all saw what happened to him the few times he had someone in his face.

We get more pressure on Eli, and I think you're looking at a sack or two, or even a turnover.

On our side, Ben took a pounding today as usual. He seemed a little off his game, and it showed.

I thought the O-line played decent, but had sporadic bursts of incompentency, which killed us, especially in the 4th quarter.

It's a loss, it hurts. However, we're 5-2 and still atop the division. Washington has looked quite beatable lately.

This right here was when the game started to go south. They score even a FG on that drive, and they are in complete control of the game. For that reason, this loss is going to leave a bit of a sour taste in my mouth, because it's one I feel they should have won. But that's where it ends - you won't see the absolute silliness out of me that you will see from the "sky is falling" crowd.

I agree, it was the turning point in the game. We had a chance to put more points on the board, eat clock, take charge of the game completely and we had a massive let down.

I don't say the sky is falling. We lost this game. 5-2. If we were 0-7 I'd be ducking for cover, but this is a game we should have and could have won. Sour taste for sure.

That about sums it up. Almost every one of those plays were made because of the "starters in waiting" as well.

I agree with everything that was said, but this is the 2nd lost to basically the same style of defense. Please tell me why we cant figure out this blitz!!!! no screens, no draws no slants, or wr screens. -4yrds in the 4th qrt!!! Now thats completely unacceptable! Arians will be fired at seasons end!

Defense can't get the blame for any part of this loss. They gave us a chance to win and put them away and the Offense couldn't do it.
