Show Recap: NYG vs. NO

by Talk Football

 - Thu, Oct 22 2009

In this episode, the Giants are no longer undefeated, seven different Saints found the end zone, and LB Antonio Pierce admits he didn’t see this game coming.

 

Under the veil of a soft schedule, the New York Giants (5-1) were able to climb to the top of the NFC East due to a well-balanced offense and a dominating defense. However, playing on the road for the fourth time in their last five games, the Giants’ honeymoon came to an end. Why? The new darlings of the league, the New Orleans Saints (5-0), that’s why.

 

Saints QB Drew Brees (23/30, 4 TDs) and his high-octane offense racked up forty-eight points and accumulated 493 total yards (369 courtesy of Brees) on a Giants defense that looked unprepared and out of position most of the contest. Saints wide-out Marques Colston led the charge with eight catches for 166 yards and a touchdown. The Saints defense left their mark as well by forcing Giants QB Eli Manning to fumble inside his own territory right before the half. New Orleans would go on to recover the fumble and punch in an easy score that would all but put the game out of reach heading into the locker room.

 

In lieu of Manning’s ill-advised interception in the third quarter, Talking Giants Football’s Anthony C. Wayne assures Giants fans that as long as Manning is their starting quarterback they’ll have to live with his lapses in judgment. With the uncertainty of tackle Kareem McKenzie’s next start (strained groin) and the growing age of the offensive line, co-host, Tommy L. Biggs, warns that Manning’s perennial flaws, lack of mobility in the pocket and trepidation under pressure, will most likely be exposed without  strong pass protection up front.      

 

Kick returner Dominik Hixon, one of the Giants few bright spots, put New York’s offense in good field position throughout the game. Hixon amassed 230 yards on seven returns. Rookie wide receiver Hakeem Nicks continued to impress his critics with five receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown.

 

Wayne and Biggs call for more intensity and pressure from New York’s defense against Arizona QB Kurt Warner this Sunday and look to see if the Giants offense can get back to what they do best, running the football.

 

Be sure and check out the next installment of Talking Giants Football next Tuesday at 10 pm and keep those phone calls coming.
