previews Week 6 -
It's all Dan Reeves -
Next week - Atlanta:
What are they saying about the
here to find out.
Well, we tracked
down Gamegirl for our report.
"Can't we talk
about the Jets this week?
They won 20-9 over the Dolphins."
Come on Giants, we can't
lose Gamegirl to those Jets fan pages.
"How about those
Yankees?", she said, hoping to avoid the unavoidable.
"OK, the game was a disaster! Happy? I said it!
I can't fault the Giants defense, but I think the offense
has to do something out there too if they want to win a game.
The Bucs weren't all that impressive on offense, but they
turned it on when they had to in the forth quarter to salt
the game away. Their running back Dunn was very impressive
to watch, and meanwhile, our former first round draft pick,
RB Wheatley, wasn't even suited up for the game.
It's like we don't know what we're doing with the offense
from week to week."
She spit it out fast and seemed happy to get it off her chest.
"That's all I'm going to say about the game, except that
the "War of the Barbers" as Mikefan was calling
it, was won by Tiki's brother Ronde.
He got one of the three interceptions against the Giants,
and even shoved his brother Tiki out of bounds on one play.
Also, I liked hearing Jerry Glanville's commentary on the
He can make you laugh even when it hurts to watch, and it
hurts a lot these days."
even give us a chance at questions, so we just let him go
"The only thing worse than the Giant's offense these
days is the stock market, except that the Giant's have bottomed
already. Total rushing was 64 yards.
Passing was 71 yards on a paltry 2.4 yards per play!
There were 3 interceptions that led to 17 of the total 20
Third down efficiency was 2-12."
"Maybe we should go back to the good old days when the
same guys played both sides of the ball. Tampa Bay time of
possession was almost 39 minutes, and the Giants defense was
out there most of the game anyway.
Imagine Jessie Armstead as a running back!
In fact, let's make over the whole team. We'll get rid of
the quarterbacks - and no passing downfield (which is the
way we play now anyway).
"We'll work with a whole team of running backs who occasionally
toss the ball over the middle pileup just to keep the other
team from stuffing the run every play. We can't do any worse."
Mikefan got serious again
for his game review.
You can't praise the Tampa Bay offense in this game either.
If you take away the Giants mistakes (3 interceptions) what
do you get? A 3-3 tie.
Tampa did manage an effective time wasting 3 point offensive
effort against our worn out defensive unit to totally seal
the win in the final quarter. But that was it"
OK Mikefan. Don't just complain. What's the fix?
"I don't know!
Get Jason Sehorn and Corey Miller back.
Get Sam Garnes and Jessie Armstead and Richard Harris healthy.
Wait a minute! These are all defensive guys!
Come to think of it, the offensive unit is all healthy!
What indeed is the problem?"
Maybe we need Dan Reeves back?
His Atlanta team scored 51 points on Sunday!"
Now we know Mikefan was really at the end of his string!
