Nuts, I completely forgot to post this as I tried to blot out as much of the game as I could but it needs to get done so we can move on...
It was a blow out. I still haven't cut the video, I guess that'll keep until Saturday (written Tuesday, still waiting).
It's been written about elsewhere but the game plan was crazy. Or, the game plan was fine but the script went into the garbage before the first quarter was complete. Either way, the first half was a blow out and nothing much worked in second half either (except the Bone late in the game but I chalked that up to garbage time).
Both lines were whipped and the early rushing success by the Giants contributed to the out of control nature of the first half.
Tackling raised its ugly head once again.
James Jones wasn't targeted a single time.
Oddly enough, the running stats look almost respectable. I thought I was seeing things.
One thing did make me laugh late in the game. McMillian got called for Unnecessary Roughness on Martellus Bennett. There is a 7 to 8 inch difference in height there. How could McMillian avoid hitting Bennett's jaw with his helmet without launching himself? It was just that kind of night.
With the win the Giants helped their cause in the NFCE while the Packers are now in the wild card bracket. Should this team make the playoffs, the Giants are going to be there waiting.
