You guys should highlight the NY Giants WR's...just watching the first Q now and after the INT that put the Giants back to their own 32 yard line (basically, a punt), they just destroyed our D for an easy TD. Nicks is running on one leg and has 5 yards on Culliver (bad throw by Eli). Then Hixon just abuses our CB's off the LOS for a bomb, makes an AMAZING sideline catch (great throw where only his guy can catch it) and then Cruz catches a 99 mph fast ball in the back of the EZ that is super high (poorly thrown ball). I haven't even gotten into the acrobatic catches yet. The bottom line though is that Eli has confidence in these guys, b/c, well, why not...the effing catch everything. And they do..and Eli is often time inaccurate but they do attack the ball and put themselves in great position to catch the ball esp. off the LOS and adjustments when the ball is in the air. It really is impressive to watch.
On the flip side Crabtree drops another pass right in his hands on 3rd down (tipped). It was behind him but not 1/2 as hard as some of the catches the Giants were making routinely; Walker (LOL); simple drop by Celek right in his hands (joke); one pass behind to Crabtree (bad pass by Alex on ad lib play).
I don't have time but it would be cool to get an objective read of how "accurate" Eli is vs. how well the Giant WR's are making him look more accurate than he really is vs our passing game. If I remember correctly too, Eli, in the past two games should have had what, 6 INT's including 2 pick-6's? The first Q he was long on Hicks (see Alex/Manningham play), horrendous pass on 3rd down into the ground and then comes alive on the TD drive right after the pick.
Just a thought...
