Sometimes in the NFL, your team doesn’t win. And then there are other times when your team will look great in the first half and then run into a superstar that just takes over the game. BEAST MODE, sorry, it’s not your day.
For the New York Football Giants, that’s exactly what happened. In the second half, the Seattle Seahawks overcame their mental lapses from earlier in the game. They started pounding the rock with Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman got over being beat by Odell Beckham Jr. a few times. Here’s one reminder of the GIANT good times:
Shortly after that play there was still some hope, it was only 17-14 at the half and the Giants were winning. Hope was fleeting as in the third quarter the Seahawks activated BEAST MODE while the Giants continued to use their patented LEAST MODE tackling skills to stop Lynch and Russell Wilson as Seattle racked up 350 rushing yards.
12th Man Rising
That’s not an error, the freakin’ Seattle Seahawks ran all over the Giants wounded defense and kept Eli Manning on the sideline as they won the time of possession battle by about seven minutes. It was a terrible performance by the Giants D, they got shut out 24-0 in final two quarters.
Brutal, ugly, disgusting… someone should get fired style football.
That said, what are you going to do? It’s BEAST MODE, when the guy is on, no one can tackle him. With “no one” specifically being the New York Giants defense, we don’t have the exact statistics but there was something like 985,523 missed tackles in this football game.
For Giants Nation, it will be tough because their team is now 3-6, they’ve been humiliated on prime time TV twice this year and just got shown what it takes to be a champion by the defenders of the Lombardi Trophy, the Seattle Seahawks.
Lesson number one: tackle.
A lesson the Giants failed big time against one of the best in the league, BEAST MODE.
