NY Giants vs. Carolina Panthers: Full Roster Report Card Grades for New York
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants (0-3) had no answers for the Carolina Panthers (1-2), who steamrolled the Giants 38-0.

Collectively, the Giants had many of the same problems as they've had going back to the preseason, some of which included:

  • More turnovers, including quarterback Eli Manning's eighth interception of the young season and a lost fumble by receiver Louis Murphy Jr.
  • A lackluster pass rush that resulted in just one sack and one hit against Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
  • The continued struggles of the running game, which gained 30 of its 60 total rushing yards during fourth-quarter garbage time.
  • A 25 percent conversion rate (3-of-12) on third down.

In addition to the above, the Giants offensive line gave up an alarming seven sacks, six of them in the first half, while receivers Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz were held to just three receptions for 25 yards—all of the catches and yards by Cruz. 

It doesn't get any uglier than this week, and while there were a very few number of bright spots, the whole team right on down to the coaching staff deserves a big fat "F" for once again failing to transfer their "good week" of practice that they claim to have had to the playing field. 

Let's look at each of the primary players' contributions to this week's debacle.
