We all saw the New York Giants embarrassing loss to the Detroit Lions in the Monday Night Football showdown last night in Detroit. We all saw the miscommunications between Eli Manning and his young (and old) receivers. We all saw the offensive line struggle both in run blocking and pass protection. We all saw the Giants defense have its own miscues leading to big play for Detroit.
The game was literally every Giants’ fan’s worst nightmare and confirmed all of our fears coming into this season. This offense clearly is still a work in progress, clearly this offensive line isn’t playing very well, and clearly the Giants pass rush is still inconsistent which led to too many miscues by the defense and too many big plays for Detroit — and ultimately the Giants defense getting worn out by the fourth quarter.
It’s a bad day to be a Giants fan and many are on edge, if they weren’t already, and many analysts have already counted this team out of playoff contention. So amid all the doom and gloom that is any news related to the Giants today, I will attempt to sort through this mess and try to find some solutions for this Giants squad that seemingly has no identity whatsoever.
