The score and stats are not indicative of what truly occured on Sunday; I think we all could agree that the Giants dominated the Redskins. The first touchdown the Redskins scored was on a trick play that really should've been defended better (note that the next time the Redskins kicked a field goal, our defenders did not rush on the edge to protect against such gadgetry). The second touchdown was probably considered an afterthought after a dominating performance and was more an act of desperation by the Redskins than good play and playcalling.
Let's think, though, about what the Giants really did in Week 1. First, they have already placed themselves into first position in the East. Though the same could be said about the Eagles' and the Cowboys' dominating wins, the Giants did it in the division. And we can't forget that this team they played was considered a dark horse in the Beast. Some outsiders couldn't pin this team in the division, not knowing where they may end up at the end of the year.
Like Ed said, Corey Webster was unbelievable yesterday. Santana Moss isn't a first tier #1 WR in this league, but he is close. He plays hard and finds ways to get open. Campbell couldn't find him yesterday...at all. Corey Webster is already a star in this league, it's just not common knowledge yet. Before mid-season, Webster will have punched his ticket to the Pro Bowl.
I am really looking forward to what the Giants will do this year. Barring injuries, the Giants could show that last year was a fluke. It's exciting to see after just one week, what could happen this year.
Do you agree that this game was dominated by the Giants?
