I said it several months ago. You focus on 1 aspect of your team the whole team suffers. I thought our D was overrated last year. They got teams struggling on offense not the results of a good Defense. JPP is overrated and over paid Still lack of linebacker play from Kennard and Casillas. No free safety and Apple is average that made a few plays last year I had a feeling that dumping millions into Defense and neglecting our offense would bite us
One thing accorsie did as GM in every draft every year is address the trenches every draft in rounds 1-4. Either an OT G or DT or DE was drafted every year high to keep our fronts young strong and talented He understood the value of the quarterback and his line to protect him and to block for his next best friend a running game. With those 2 items in place it makes 3rd downs achievable and gives your defense time to rest and hydrate
Reese neglected his line for over a half of decade When Suebert Snee O'Hara diel all decided to retire in a few seasons he had no bodies ready to go. Still decided to draft RB Wilson WR Randle WR Shepherd WR/TE Engram WR Beckham high year after year. Yes Pugh was drafted Round 1. Who was thinking Pugh at 22? I never heard of him. Flowers? Really? We could of went Round 2 and found a better tackle or he may of been there.
Reese is a kid not understanding how to spend his money with his new paycheck. Kids buy cars, video games stereos and go out drinking on weekends and now week nights when they should be setting up an IRA and saving for a house. Reese is the sane way blowing his draft picks on WR RB and Hybrid TE other then building his teams foundation on his offensive and defensive lines. Spending your free agency money on RB WR linebackers and safeties is cheaper then OT DE DT guard these days. They could of got a guy like Sanu or Kerly a lot cheaper then Marshall. And got the sane results on the field. If he would of got Snakes Vernon Jenkins last year and let JPP walk used that money on a LT and quality guard instead this team probably would of been 3-0 at this point What has JPP done since the browns game last year? Really other then the forced fumble against cowboys week 1. Nothing. Oh. Hurt like always. Okwara and Wynn would of given us the sane results this year at 700,000 versus 12 million. Reese doesn't no how to properly draft or spend his money properly PERIOD.
I think it is a combination of the offense being bad and having so many 3 & outs combined with our defense's poor ability to get off of the field on 3rd down this season.
This what I think as well. Defense is gassed and there are many drives where Snacks has to take a breather and is not on the field.
Plus, you have Calvin Munson as your starting MLBer.
I heard Carl Banks and some other folks on the NY Giants radio network talking about how teams strategically run more on the edges with the Giants to stay away from Snacks. I also agree with the folks citing the TOP. The Giants have been playing from behind so often and they have run into teams that have (for a change) shifted to running clock and running the ball and making the Giants offense score on the opponents D.
I also think Munson spelling Goodson isn't helping.

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
