First, Alex didn't really look bad until the 2nd half when he threw those painful two INTs. Still, that was enough to hurt us badly, and he wasn't gonna force one more pass. Second, Boone came in at LT for Staley and blocked well. The defense just got rather undisciplined at times in the 2nd half. All of the rest, I agree with.
I think Alex pressed but Giants also did a good job. Again, I don't think he throws all 3 ints and things go much differently if a few plays went different. The field goals, the L.Davis false start, the play calling and constant switching of the qbs. Honestly, I really wonder how the game would have turned out if we didn't outsmart ourselves and played it like we normally do. Not saying we won because the Giants are a great team and they seem to bring their A game against us unlike when they play some of the bad teams. I think it would have been within 7 points.
Yeah, me too.. I think our D would have played with better energy and results, had we avoided an INT or two... and that could have happened had we not been so stupid as to have abandoned Gore and Hunter in the 3rd quarter. Can only shake my head over the coaching decisions there... but it's past time to move on and forget about that game.
