Giants held the Falcons to just 13 yards rushing.
Jason Sehorn and Jessie Armstead
Giants break a 2 game losing streak.
Giants at 4-2, are tied for first in the NFC East
don't seem too happy with this win.
don't I? No I am really. I'm always happy when the
Giants win. Now, we're 4-2, and keeping up with
the other teams in the division and all. I just
wish our offense was scoring more points. I was
hoping they would have a breakout day against the
Falcons. I mean, the Falcons defense isn't rated
very high at all. The more I watched the game, I
got the feeling that we have only one person who
can really do it on offense. Tiki Barber did all
the running this game, and caught most of the passes.
What happened to Ike Hilliard, Toomer and Jurevicius?
Most every game Tiki does the running, catches the
passes and even chips in with punt returns. What
kind of balanced offense do we have if only one
guy is doing all this and, what will we do if something
happens to him?"
point. Joe Montgomery is the backup.
Who? Isn't he someone who used to play for us last
year? I'm just kidding of course, but they don't
even let that guy step onto the playing field. If
something happens to Tiki during a game, we're in
big trouble, and if we lose him for any length of
time, we lose all our offense. You know, even with
Tiki in there getting his shots, doing everything
he can, racking up yards, the Giants still don't
score many points. Some of those other guys have
to do something too. I think Kerry Collins is OK.
I know he had 2 interceptions, but they were ones
that bounced off our receivers. Toomer dropped some
passes, and so did Hilliard. Come on guys. Get it
you surprised to see Danny Kanell come in to replace
I kinda lost track of him. I didn't remember he
was with the Falcons. I expected to see Kent Graham
play for Pittsburgh against the Jets in the early
game. Who would have believed that the 1-3 Steelers
would beat the 4-0 Jets. That only leaves Minnesota
and the Rams as undefeated teams, and the Vikings
play Tampa Bay on Monday night. Anyway, I noticed
that Danny Kanell was wearing the number thirteen.
It wasn't very lucky for him."
do you think the Giants will do against Dallas next
when you play other division teams, everything goes
out the window. Look at the trouble Washington had
against the Eagles. You just never know. At least
we have Tiki Barber, and Dallas knows what he can
do against them."
the Giants come up with another win.
a good way to put it. They come up with another
win against a weaker team. The offense scored all
of 13 points and the Giants won the game. Even with
the defense shutting down the run and putting enormous
pressure on their quarterbacks, the Falcons were
never out of this game. That's what 13 points will
do for you, and the Giants were lucky to have that.
If you remember, the Falcons Travis Hall pulled
a penalty for using a teammate to get leverage in
an attempt to block Jaret Holmes 32-yard field goal.
The field goal was good, but Fassel took the three
points off the board for a chance to go for the
seven, which Ron Dayne got on his 2 yard run a few
plays later. If there was no penalty, the Giants
would have been nursing along 9 points for the game,
or worse yet if something went wrong, it would have
been 6-6 at the end of the 4th quarter.
When you think about the Giants on offense, remember
now, that the Falcons were coming off a 41-20 loss
to the Rams, followed by a 38-10 loss to the Eagles.
Now they lost by only 13-6 to the Giants, using
their backup quarterback for more than half the
game. I'm sorry, but the Giants should have done
better against the Falcons."
good? Jason Sehorn is. He had himself a real nice
game, and he's been there all year on defense, the
same way Gamegirl mentioned that Barber has been
on offense. Armstead is always in the game. Pete
Monty, known for being good against the run, came
away with a sack. Shaun Williams came on strong
again this game with eight tackles. Greg Comella
had 4 catches for 43 yards. Strahan got a sack at
the right time on Kanell, when they were driving
for the touchdown that would tie it. I don't know
if he did well enough against what might be considered
easy opposition in that game to satisfy the press
that's been on him lately."
will the Giants do next week?
week they catch Dallas coming off a bye week. The
Cowboys will have had plenty of time to prepare
for the Giants, but then again, the Giants haven't
shown anyone very much. Emmitt Smith rushed for
only 202 yards in his first four games, but picked
up 132 yards on 24 carries in their last game against
the Panthers. Aikman had two interceptions, but
directed the game winning drive in overtime. If
we come away with a win at the Meadowlands next
Sunday going into our bye week, I'll be very happy."
