How The Giants Can Learn From The Jets

Special To Jets Gab By Martin Alvin – GiantsGab.com

En-route to a horrible 0-6 start, the Giants didn’t run the ball well with dancing, darting, impatient, David Wilson and Eli was taking way too many seven step drops and throwing way too many bombs that morphed into interceptions –- all of which made the ‘O’ look even worse with their mixing and matching bunch of substitutes. Meanwhile, the ‘D’ was getting torched and the special teams sucked. So, it would seem logical to credit their modest, recent, two game winning streak to running the ball better with north/south Brandon Jacobs and Peyton Hillis, throwing fewer bombs and some modest improvement on a simplified ‘D’ –- even though, unfortunately, the special teams still suck. But is that enough to make a belated run at the post season? I think so and here’s why: the – Uchhh! – Jets.

Nothing – I repeat, nothing – pains me more than watching the Jets win a football game. I’m telling you, honest-to-God, it’s like getting a sharp stick poked in my eye. Especially when they beat good teams like the Saints, or the Patriots a few weeks ago. That’s even worse than watching them beat lousy teams like the Buccaneers. At a certain point, I just have to turn off the TV. I watch their losses, though, to the very end and relish every second — especially during that 49-9 drubbing by the Bengals. But their victories now exceed their losses and hey, credit where credit is due –- even when giving that credit pains me even more.
