McCaffrey did nothing tonight, including getting stuffed with the game on the line at the end. Giants defensive coaches should have watched both teams defenses tonight and tried to learn something, mainly how to get your defensive ends to tackle the QB for 10 yard losses over and over. Where was DG on Shaq Barrett? 4 sacks in 2 games, probably more than any Giants player will have in a full season.
I’m sure they will watch film. Not to watch Mccaffery but to watch Tampa. We play them I think next weekend. I no over the next game or 2. Barkley best ran straight ahead. Play action. Wheel routes etc. Engram will have a monster year if these receivers can’t stay on the field
In the 'modern game', Running is an extension of the passing game. The threat to run keeps defenders closer to the LOS and creates opportunities. Teams that lack a credible run, or try to pass their way out of a scoring delta become one dimensional (predictable). This is one reason that I can't understand the empty backfield when you have a pocket passer...
I agree the Giants can do more with Barkley (or Gallman), but I really hope there is a lot more play action. The first TD on the Giants opening drive was possible with play action. The Giants had Eli roll-out on play action a few times on Sunday; Why? Eli is very slow and when he rolls-out he is cutting the field (throwing opportunities) in half. The cluster of a roll-out on the 4th down with the Dallas game on the line should be enough to say, keep Eli between the tackles...

UncleJoe10: I thought Buck Allen ran hard and would keep him aboard as a nice power running back up to Saquan.

bronxpinstripes: Danny Dimes solved the fumbling problem against the Packers by throwing 3 INTs instead.

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
