2010 Giants What the Film Shows


NY Time Fifth Down Blog had a piece on the Giants with the same title

Here’s a snipit of what they wrote:

on the offense

Eli Manning’s 2010 season was a perfect example of why the N.F.L.. should reclassify some interceptions as a receiver’s error, just as Major League Baseball reclassifies some hits as fielders’ errors. Almost half of Manning’s league-leading 25 picks were the fault of receivers like Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham and Steve Smith (listed in descending order of general culpability). Nicks and Manningham were a tad inconsistent in route execution, which put a dent on their otherwise impressive seasons.

On the defense

The N.F.C. is lucky that 11 Giant defenders never seemed to play well at the same time. The talent of this unit was almost startling. The front four generally got most of the attention, and understandably so.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Spoiler alert the myth Section revovles around an OL they don’t think needs a position switch (Cough Diehl cough). Is that what the film shows? I think I might have been watching a different film.

    The OL went through a ton this year, but clearly the best lineups were the games they didn’t give up a sack. O’Hara was out, and he should never have played. Richie had a tremendous year all around, should have been more recognized in the main stream. McKenzie and Snee had the right side on lockdown all year. Beatty and Boothe did admirable jobs as standins, in fact the line was at its best with one or even both these guys playing. Who knows what Andrews will bring next year. So do they need to draft another OL — yes. Particularly looking for a LT and a center.

    Diehl CERTAINLY needs to move inside to guard at the very least.
