Of course the offense only scored points on the hurry up. It's what I said all week would work. And when asked why they change from hurry up on that drive Jim Tressel (the Giant's DC) said ... I don't know ... we didn't have an answer for it.
They should have stayed in the hurry up instead of running BJGE. Complete another short pass, get four yards, move the chains, eat the clock. They got cute and tried to kill it .... which only works when your runner is good enough to get you first downs without losing yards.
Stop being so down on Danny. Danny Woodhead put six points on the board, and was responsible for a 19 yard gain in that game. Which is way more than anything BJGE did.
BJGE hasn't gained 19 yards on a single play all season long.
Neither of them are special running backs, at least Woodhead offers a threat as a reciever because he can do something with the ball in the open field.
And no, subbing means nothing the Giants subbed in and out all game long. It didn't hurt Jacobs and it didn't hurt Bradshaw. IT doesn't hurt pittsburgh when they sub, the Saints when they sub. I doesn't hurt any other team when they sub. Players have a job to do. They should do it.
The Giants subbed, and they still ran it effectively. Their runners are just better runners.
I don't think NE shouldn't run the ball. I don't think Woodhead is the answer. Please don't put words in my mouth.
BJGE is not the answer.
Lord I only hope Ridley will stop fumbling it or Vereen will realize his talent.
But I'm realistic, BJGE is not a winning back. If he were, NE wouldn't have had to go into hurry up, and take him off the field, to move the chains.
