We could have run more slants or WR screens (which BTW I am not a huge fan of to begin with), but unfortunately the best player we have to run them with decided to have a few Mary Jane blunts in his car and got himself deactivated.

And no, Arians will not be fired at season's end. Get over it.

True dat about "blunt boy", it would have been nice to have him out there to run some of those slants to aleve some of the pressure....Gotta agree with the masses here also, the D WAS lights out today, they played incredible out there, although NO SACKS on Manning was disappointing, especially after how we have been getting to the QB all year long.

Even without Holmes, we were in the game and should have won this thing. That's what's so dang disapointing. We had em, especially on that drive late in the 3rd. But NO, we had to go and get an efffing 15 yard penalty for roughness after the play, then a 10 yard holding and a 5 yard illegal formation on Ward on a freaking 1st down play. So pissssed about that mental breakdown in that series.

Even without our 1st string running back, 2nd string running back, 2 on the depth charts receiver, 2nd on the depth chart Right Guard, new Left Guard, New center, 3rd string Corner, 4th string corner...

we had the SB Champs on the ropes and couldn't get the knock out punch.

Freaking heck gosh darn it all to hades anyway.

Freaky......I was just thinking the same thing.

Seriously....... the Geeeeeeee-men were not all that impressive and we should have won that game. We had them........ and beat ourselves up badly in the end.

If it wasn't for our defense, this game could have gotten worse.

I want to know why when our defense rushes, we still play soft coverage, giving up the quick slants and such. If you noticed yesterday, the Giants defense when they blitzed, they played tight coverage, taking away the quick passes.

No doubt! Arians is crap calling.

Two things:

1. The holding penalty on what would have been the 2nd TD pass to Washington. Willie Colon, you cost us this game.

2. We played like complete 100% crap, and still almost beat the SB Champs. Take away one interception, one penalty, one sack, we could have won this thing. That bodes well for us going forward if we can get our ducks in a row.

3rd and 4th down conversions were terrible.

Penalties for sure, especially false starts. Ben dosen't help them out any with his long snap counts. Seven games into the season and we are still taking entirely too many pre-snap penalties.

Gotta also agree with the drive in the 3rd being a turning point.

All valid points Dino, except for the giants 4th down play imo. I believe Carter was supposed to give deep help on that one. He was obviously late getting there.
