Five Takeaways from New York Giants’ Win
The Giants offense was lauded this off season as being an imposing juggernaut; “scary good” according to the New York Post. A unit capable of putting up points at will and over powering teams with a prolific passing game. Through two games, there hasn’t been a play longer than 45 yards from scrimmage. They kept out of the end zone, against a Saints team depleted by injuries in the defensive backfield. The last drive, notwithstanding, where someone in the chain of command on the sideline decided against scoring a touchdown; the Giants never really seemed primed to impose their will on the offensive side of the ball.
They had first and goal from the one-yard line, with two rushes for no gain and then ran a fade route to an isolated Larry Donnell; an easier read than a “Dr. Suess book”. The offense was careless with the ball, again showed close to nothing in the run game, and appeared to put a great effort towards not messing up; as opposed to attacking a defense that Derek Carr and the Raiders shredded last week.
