SPOTLIGHT:

Daily Blitz: Eli, Giants didn’t get the “dagger”

Posted by Dan Salomone on December 5, 2012 – 9:00 am

eliOutgaining your opponent in yards, first downs, time of possession and takeaways is usually a winning formula in a tight divisional game. But as Monday night proved, that’s not always the case.

Field position was the main culprit in the Giants’ 17-16 loss to the Redskins. In part, nine penalties led to the defending champs starting at or inside their own 10-yard line on four of eight drives.

“We didn’t quite get the dagger — hey, that big shot where you get the touchdown, you get that 50-yard touchdown,” Eli Manning told Mike Francesa on his weekly spot on WFAN. “We hit some 30- and 40-yard gains, but the same problem because of field position, a lot of them we were backed up. I hit Victor [Cruz] down the sideline in the third quarter for about 50 yards, but we were on our 12-yard line, so you’ve still got a lot of room to go to get points and you’ve got to settle for field goals.”

Despite suffering their third division loss of the season, the Giants still maintain a one-game lead in the NFC East entering the final quarter of the year. The home stretch begins with the Saints coming into MetLife Stadium this Sunday afternoon.

“Obviously it’s not always the situation you want to put yourself in,” Manning said. “You know, that’s football. A lot of teams are in a very similar circumstance. You’re not always going to be able to clinch your division the first week in December like some teams. For a lot of teams it’s a tight race, and it’s all going to come down to how do you play these next four games. We have a one-game lead right now, which is where you want to be in a lot of cases, and it’s going to come down to, hey, can we go win these four games? And it starts this week with the Saints.”

    Any chance Coughlin and Gilbride will ever realize they’ve got potentially one of the truly great receivers sitting on their bench? Ramses Barden has the best hands I’ve ever seen on a receiver. They use him in such stupid situations it drives me crazy. I believe he’ll become a Hall Of Fame player on his next team.

    Enough looking back, let us look forward together. What we have been lacking is players making plays. Big players make big plays in big games. As Coach said, every game is a must win, therefore Hakeem, Victor, D-Line, Line Backers, et al, Make a play!

    When is Coughlin going to realize that Gilbrite is a lot of the offense’s problem. He is predictable in his play calling and doesn’t have any imagination. You never see the Giants fool a defense, you see our players make great plays. The Giants have a pretty good offense that can’t score a touchdown in the red zone. Gilbrite and Coughlin are the ones to blame…

    I would like to see our d-line start getting presure on qb, its been a very quite year for them, Cruz hakeem, even bradshaw need to step it up fast, they all need to gel together now at the same time.

    Am I the only conspiracy theorists who feels that the redskins game was rigged by the refs to insure that the T-shirt sales of RG3 continue to climb? -$ By the refs managing a loss for the GMen both The Dallas and Washington markets still have NFL relevance.$ Normally I feel that the players play and calls are what they are but it seemed like all of the drives were stopped by unreviewable tissue paper contact calls – Sure nothing was called that was blatently reviewable in hindsight, but it SURE seems like for a team that has not been getting those penalties all year that in this game the timing and the specific penalities called made me feel like the league has the integrity of pro restling…..

    I agree that the refs were doing their level best to ensure that the Foreskins won the game! They missed several holding and clipping calls but what’s new! But maybe losing to those mutts will result in the GMEN winning the Super Bowl once again. It seems that everytime those bums beat us we end up winning the big dance! Plus it’s unlike the Giants to just win out the division so early. We always make things harder than need be by losing to inferior teams. I think we’ll be ok. GO GMEN!

    oh yeah, Gilbride sucks! too transparent! doesn’t utilize his full arsenal. barden needs to play especially in the redzone! he’d be a nightmare for the other teams because he’s way taller than all those lil DBs. He could be better than Plaxico shootyourselfintheleg Burress

    Turn two or maybe even just one of the field goals into touchdowns and we wouldn’t be crying the refs… Gilbrite and Coughlin is to blame, Gilbrite for his play calling and Coughlin for doing nothing about it!

    Fans, please start to understand. The Giants lost to Washington for three reasons
    1- Officiating- a total disgrace!!!!!
    2- The O coach- You don’t take the ball out of the hands of a Quarterback who is on target for the most part, and give it to two running backs, who are going nowhere. Especially where the other team knows exactly what your going to do. No screens, no slants, no new twists. I can call the game, just tell me where the ball is!
    3- The D coach- One Blitz, no adjustments, are you kidding Assign a spy, and send them in their lanes. Who the hell is RGlll? Better than Tarkington, Young, Cunningham, or a slew of other running Qb’s

    HEAD COACH, GET REAL WITH YOURSELF, AND IF WE HAVE TO LOSE, LET’S DO IT WITH GUN’S BLAZING, NOT TRYING TO GET A WINNING FIELD GOAL.

    MONDAY NIGHTS GAME A JOKE, SHOULD HAVE BLOWN THEM OUT OF THEIR OWN STADIUM.

    The burden the honest fan bears is to ignore what he wants his team to be and observe what his team is. Unfortunately, the current team is a passs too far and a step too late from several victories. Is this, if true, correctible? We will find out,as the coach is far more consistent than the players amd because of that, if it is merely shortfalls rather than shortcomings will become apparent. Time has show that the coaches can coach and now we await the time for the players to prove that they can play the Superbowl winners’ game.

    why is everyone talking about the defense. They held RGIII to 17 points. Meanwhile the offense is kicking FIVE field goals (missing one). Field goals aren’t going to beat the Saints !!!
