They're not planning for 2026. Under Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen, these new-look Giants earned an inspiring win over the Green Bay Packers in London. This is what happens when you clean house.
Incisive journalism, Tyler. Thank you.
However, there's ample proof to suggest GB's Aaron Rodgers poor 2nd half performance was the prime reason GB lost. Yes, the Giants defense was part of the reason for Rodgers' problems, but two successive tipped balls are his fault more than NY making great plays.
If, and it’s a HUGE If, the Giants make the playoffs, they should give you a playoff share for mapping out EXACTLY what they needed to do in your series on them.
"Dan Campbell said his Lions “hit rock bottom” after a 26-0 loss to New England. He is correct. How they respond this week in Dallas could define their season."
Dallas is playing the Eagles this weekend. Lions aren't until 10/23.
Great piece, Tyler. Easy to overreact to one good win - and I think 4-1 at this stage flatters the Giants - but Daboll just appears to have *it* as a head coach. The way he carries himself, his dealing with the media, his demeanour on the sidelines. All just seems so effortlessly commanding.
When I see the Packers play like they did....it makes me love McGinn even more. His comments on the Packer defense last year said this was a group that just does not get the job done in critical moments. And they certainly did not get it done on Sunday. But the "credentialed media" the Packers currently has was saying to everyone "this has the chance to be a Top 5 defense". Just again tells me that real journalism over there has died. Too many lap dogs calling themselves "reporters" each one now when challenged on those statements saying "the other reporter said that too"....meaning...I'm not accountable. On offense, not only did the Packers hand their "all-world" quarterback $50 million per year (which he said he never asked for...but we know that's a lie), they handed him total control over the offense. Rodgers has always had a tendency to fold when pressure is on him and he did again yesterday. Resorting like he always does in those situations to HERO ball. His defense was gassed at the end of the 3rd quarter, but he still was throwing 3 consecutive long passes trying to be the HERO. All were incomplete and gave the Giants the ball back again to gas the defense even more. Then at the end of the game, the HERO emerged again and on both 3rd and 1.5 yards to go and 4th down elected to pass the ball both times on plays that obviously had a run / pass option to them. Rodgers talks a good game about his two running backs (who averaged 5.1 yards a rush yesterday), but the HERO in him just won't let anybody else get the glory. What a small insecure human being he is. Just one more point. Rodgers won't retire this year if Brady retires because he needs his induction ceremony to be centered around him and not Brady. I'm a Packer fan first...not a Rodgers fan and I'm ready for someone else to lead this team, even if it means we lose for awhile.
