As we all know, we are not the very best team in the red zone. Or, as coach Coughlin would like to call, it the green zone. The Giants' play calling inside the 20 has been horrendous.
When you have a 6'6" tight end who pretty much catches everything that comes his way even when being molly wopped, you have to have some sort of confidence there. What is the average height of a defensive back in this league? Six feet? Six-foot-one?
We have two receivers who are 6' 6" who can out-leap any six-foot corner or safety, yet we run the ball, run again, then maybe throw a little screen in there, but it ends up in a field goal attempt most of the time. It is annoying, because us fans, and I'm sure the opposing team expect it every time.
With a kicker like Tynes how can you even be confident he's going to make that chip shot? You don't know. He is so inconsistent that I cringe every time he comes onto the field—even for an extra point.
Why not try some new things in the red zone instead of being so predictable? Try a fade route, or a reverse! Something ! Anything to break out of the norm and stir up some excitement for the Big Blue faithful.
Hey listen, I know that I am far from a professional, but if I had a 6' 6" receiver on the bench with hands as sticky as fly paper—A.K.A. Ramses Barden—I would run a fade route to him in the corner of the end zone every time! I really don't no what to think anymore.
I bleed blue, and it is painful to watch them in such a tough time.
I truly believe that Coughlin will make some adjustments and right this ship sooner than later. At this point, we are one game behind Green Bay and Philly for the final wild card spot, and two games behind Dallas for the division title.
With our next two games being Dallas and Philly, both in the Meadowlands, now is the time to make a stride. Destiny is in our hands. What do you say Giant faithful? Lets back our team, and hope for a strong run to the playoffs!
