5 reasons Week 6 will provide a clean slate for Gmen
3. Underutilized offensive players will begin anew as league leaders
As the last three weeks indicate, the wide receivers could not be as effective as the statistics would indicate. The Giants gained 219 yards while allowing nearly twice that number which is a troubling ratio.
With a week to engage in solemn contemplation of the planning of the team’s future for this season, there is room for optimism that Manning can sort out the problems of not being on the same page with his wide receivers.
In a game where Manning passed for 199 yards and was 18 for 35 in attempts with a season low quarter back rating, a bounce back which includes touchdowns to each of his wide recievers together with a victory would bring smiles to everyone’s faces from the current expressions of glum brooding stares.
4. Fallibility is a sign that a time has potential it can realize in the final days of the season
Ask a well-read NFL expert from a previous generation and you’ll find that teams that have started out with losing records in the first part of the season have achieved success. This has to do with the resiliency of a team and practically speaking the physical well being of players recovering from injuries early on the in the season.
There is a hope that the Giants can reinsert their star running backs into the lineup in the next few weeks with November stated as the latest against Cleveland.
Better to make mistakes early on in the season and correct them, than to do as typical with the Giants, achieve five or six wins and lose games at the end of the season out of a failure to have learned from mistakes on offense and defense.
