They thought they can surprise the NYG with the passing game, they thought their WR crop has improved dramatically, they thought AS was a great/HOF QB, they thought overusing CK would result in success, and they thought they could win a game against the defending SB champs NYG without establishing a running game therefore going with an unbalanced offensive attack by primarily passing and mixing in a gimmicky wildcat QB in CK instead of traditional running plays.
Well they thought wrong, it would be a big mistake to try that again against a good team with a good defense for the rest of the season. If someone continues with that nonsense, you can bet someone will be on the chopping block by season's end. As they said, "You are either getting better or getting worse." since they're putting that on the players, I believe that should apply to the coaching staff too.
