Who Is This Team?

The Giants have five major problems. Their first problem is that while the offense has unbelievable bursts of productivity, the offense also has unfathomable stretches where nothing can go right. If I am beginning to sound like a broken record with the “Giants are inconsistent” chorus, it is because it is the most frustrating problem the Giants have had this season. Are they juggernauts or not?

A week after the Giants slugged out a win with Eli Manning throwing for less than 200 yards, they put up 49 points via Manning’s six touchdown passes. The week before the Cowboys game the Giants couldn’t block anyone and Manning stumbled in the 27-7 loss to the Eagles. The Giants offense is a mystery. It has been everything from terrible to spectacular this season.

The Giants offense is talented but it is inconsistent. The Giants have shown what they can do now they have to do it on a consistent basis. Otherwise it will be hard to see the Giants as a playoff team. The Giants will continue their up and down path until they figure everything out.
