5. Keep The Petal To The Metal:

I don’t care if it’s on offense, defense or special teams the Giants can never allow themselves to be satisfied. Satisfaction gets you beat in the NFL. Look at last season. How many times did the Giants get off to a fast start and then suddenly sputter and lose the game. The best way to dominate is to aggressively and actively trying to make something good happen on each play. The best way to dominate is for the play calling to stay consistent rather than getting conservative.

In basketball teams often start milking the shot clock when they have a lead. The problem they run into sometimes is losing the flow and rhythm that got them the lead in the first place. The same thing happens in football. When the offensive coordinator stops taking shots, and becomes overly conservative the offense becomes easy to stop. Instead of thinking about the bad things that can happen, think about the good that can happen. If the Giants build a lead they should add to it for the entire ball game.

The Giants best way to dominate is simply be aggressive in every phase of the game and on every snap of the football. The Giants have to demand a bit more from themselves this season. They cannot get up for the Cowboys game and relax against the Falcons for example. The Giants must go for it, always. The Giants need to play complete games, no more building a lead and watching it slip away.
