The way I see it with the coaches decisions in the Giants game -- they thought the passing game is to level where they could lean on it early and often if the run game falters. And the attitude after the Bills game is that we are good enough to beat the Giants in myriad of different ways, running the ball, passing plays, playaction, misdirection plays, WildKaep plays. They basically took the similar game plan against the Bills to go into the Giants. I thought the same going into the game. But it blew up in their face big time.
In this sense we became predictable because the Giants is a more disciplined defense and seems more prepared on what was going to come their way. Especially in the passing game. All 3 of the Smith's INT, the defender peeled off on the first, the defender jumped on the slant on the second one on 3rd&6, and the third there were 4 defenders around Crabtree. This tells me we are predictable to the Giants. They need a change-up on the playaction pass plays and add more personnel and design changes to the other passing plays.
But it's really the offensive execution too. The first INT could resulted in a big play had Smith and the guys executed better.
