The Giants are 5-1, but I'm starting to see too much predictability from the offense. Eli is reverting back to concentrating too much on one receiver and that's a dead giveaway for the defensive backs and defensive line. They're watching his eyes and reading his moves and knocking down too many throws at the line or in the secondary. What the heck has happened to the tight end? That position needs to be more active to release one of the wide receivers.
The defense has played well against some mediocre teams but the defensive line doesn't get their hands up enough to knock down passes and all too often the blitzes are being shown to the offense too soon. Alot of good teams will see this and take advantage of it.
Carney has done really well on the place kicks but the kickoffs are way too short. Hopefully, Tynes can remedy that and Tyree will be back soon on special teams to clamp down on the long returns. Still though the Giants seem to play better against good teams because they play with a little fear and more intensity. they need to expound on that with the upcoming schedule. Go Big Blue!! Let's get back to the Super Bowl!
