It's hard to put into words what happened to the NY Giants on Sunday against the New York Jets. With less than 30 seconds left on the clock, the Giants had a 10-7 lead and it looked like the game was all but over. However, the Jets pulled off a miracle of a win to stun Big Blue fans.
How? Why? Who wants us all to suffer like this? The defense played tremendously, but their effort was wasted because the Giants offense, in the hands of Tommy DeVito, couldn't do anything with the passing game.
Between the Giants not trusting DeVito to take any chances, coupled with the Graham Gano missed field goal with the game on the line, people are not happy with Coach Dabes for 'playing scared' in this one.
Brian Daboll being too conservative haunted the Giants vs. the Jets on Sunday
If the Giants can't trust DeVito to throw the ball eight yards down the field, then why is he the third-string quarterback? Saquon Barkley rushed for 128 yards on 36 carries, but you can't expect him to do everything for this offense. Giants fans are not happy with Daboll for not taking more risks in the loss:
After the final whistle, Graham Gano called himself out for his two missed field goals, telling the media to put the loss on him. His miss late in the fourth quarter is what gave the Jets hope, but still, plenty of people assumed the Giants defense would have been able to make a final stop.
That wasn't the case, with Zach Wilson making some big-time throws to set up the Greg Zuerlein kick to force overtime. In that OT, the Giants got the ball first, but they didn't do anything on offense, went 3-and-out and an Adoree' Jackson penalty on third down for the Jets proved to be the final self-inflicted wound.
Daboll is disappointed right now and so are thousands of Giants fans. This loss was downright embarrassing, with the second-year head coach definitely wanting some of his decisions back.
