The first 2 weeks of this 2009 NFL season the New York Giants have displayed a surprisingly lethal passing game which dominated their division rival opponents. Eli Manning has shown tremendous poise, and receivers Steve Smith and Mario Manningham have been virtually unstoppable. But the Giants league-leading (2008) running game has been unusually quiet. Even so, the Giants offense took what they were given and led the team to victory.
My prescription for the ailing Giants in week 3 is to bring back the running game. Pound the ball with Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. Keep the Giant defense off the field during 90-plus degree heat. Keep pounding with running plays until we wear down the Buccaneers front line.
I'm sure we will see plenty of passing too. Let's face it, TB is probably going to "put 8 men in the box" most of the time until they are burned. I'd like to see the Giants stick with the run once a decent lead is established. Time for the Juggernaut! Especially versus old teammate, Derrick Ward...
