Their QB has a very nice deep ball and isn't afraid to let it go. The Giants showed how important attempting the deep pass can be vs a defense that is solid against the more probable plays. The deep ball is more of a chance play but is always a higher percentage for the offense more than it is for the defense if the coverage is man.
We better get ready.
with those WRs and not getting touched by a pass rush, I can see why Eli isn't afraid to let routes develop and then pitch it up...
I'm not talking about Alex Smith. I'm talking about the weakness of our D. Just to note, Eli did it with Mario in past years also. He did it with other WR's who are no longer good enough to be in the NFL.
But let's get away from all that. Should have posted this comment in this thread.
Am I the only one who isn't bothered by this loss? So what, Alex had a bad game. Our coaches came in with what looked like the exact same game plan as last year's regular season game vs the Giants. What does that tell me? They are more worried about beating SEA than they are beating the Giants. I truly believe some of last week was to prepare for SEA along with keeping Gore from being too sore and keeping him fresh for SEA.Our division is tough. If we had a 3 game lead, then I think the importance of the SEA and NYG games would be flipped. But we MUST have division wins first priority.
