How is it possible an 11-3 record could look so bad?
In the matter of only two weeks, The New York Giants have lost their number one receiver, their identity, and any momentum they had built up entering the month of December.
Last night the Dallas Cowboys manhandled Manning, dominated the line of scrimmage, and shut down every skill player the Giants had. With no run game in sight for big blue, no dominant wide receiver, and a surprising offensive line collapse, Eli Manning must be filing harassment charges against the Cowboys sacked him a season high eight times.
In the two losses this month, the Giants have scored one offensive touchdown and a total of 429 yards. Adding to the deteriorating offense is the sudden injury plague the Giants have been hit with. Offensive lineman Kareem McKenzie and Rich Seubert have joined Brandon Jacobs on the injury list after leaving last nights game against the Cowboys.
With Plaxico Burress done for the season, the Giants now need to work on re-inventing themselves on offense, because the blueprint on stopping the defending super bowl champions is out.
The run game needs to re-establish itself as a dominate force, and the time has come for Steve Smith and Dominick Hixon to step up and fill the void left by Plaxico Burress.
Things can turn quickly for the G-Men if they can pull out a victory at home against the Carolina Panthers next week. Not only do the Panthers have a similar record, but the winner will determine who has home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. If the Giants want the road to the super bowl to pass through the Meadowlands, then they need to figure out how to win close games, because it only gets tougher from here, and they just don’t have the firepower to blow the competition away anymore.
Next weeks game will determine if the Giants are super bowl contenders, or just this years pretenders.
