Turnovers

I'm sure there has been a fan post about the turnovers this year but I'm not sure if this fact was mentioned.  If it was then I have no problem if this post is deleted so it's not taking up space over here.


Fact from my NYG 2011 Calendar for today: The Giants lost the ball on only 10 interceptions and 3 fumbles in 2008.  Their 13 giveaways equaled the fewest in the NFL that season (and in any 16-game season in NFL history).

 

13 turnovers!  10 ints!  3 fumbles!   Lowest in NFL history!   Our New York Giants?  I don't believe it...



How do the Giants go from setting the record for the fewest turnovers in NFL history just 2 years ago to having the most turnovers in the league this year?  Was this year a fluke? Or maybe 2008 was a fluke and we should get used to a sloppy undisciplined turnover prone team.

When I read this fact this morning I thought it was very interesting and I decided to share it because I'm not sure most people realize how disciplined/efficient/careful with the ball the Giants were just 2 years ago.  It makes you wonder why we had so many turnovers this year.  Less experienced receivers?  Bradshaw instead of D. Ward?  Eli pressing while we were down?  We have the same offensive coaching staff as 2008 minus Palmer.  Maybe he really is the answer to Eli's success.  I'm not saying Eli didn't have success this year but I think this re iterates the importance of a quality QB coach. Bradshaw alone doubled the 2008 team fumbles lost total by himself this year.  I don't have an answer to any of this, maybe someone else does.
