It has taken me a full week to digest the Giants’ Thanksgiving stink bomb laid in Denver. I am now ready to write about how Big Blew.
When the offense scores 6 points, you’re not going to win the game. When the team has 3 turnovers, you’re not going to win the game (unless the other team is even less competent at home, which is less likely than Pittsburgh accepting a concussion as an acceptable injury).
Yes, the Giants ruined Thanksgiving evening by playing an ugly, terrible game while causing injuries in the process. Running backs Ahmad Bradshaw (more successful this season than Brandon Jacobs), and Danny Ware (formerly Derrick Ward) are not two heads of a three-headed monster, or two parts of a classic group, but are two more kind-of injured Giants.
Losing Antonio Pierce to injury is clearly not working out for the New York football Giants. Eli Manning’s foot is back in question, as is the season. Eli and the offense are out of sync. They have their moments, but those moments are few and far between… none of which seem to show up in the Red Zone.
A pathetic loss in an already inconsistent season doesn’t feel good. Even if the ship is righted by sweeping the NFC East in the next three games, the G-men are not a playoff caliber team.
Maybe I lied, I’m not ready to write about this.
