Play calling and lackluster offense were the most egregious faults by the Giants, like it was in their previous losses. The Saints outperformed the Giants offensively, racking up 389 yards compared to the Saints 299. Many members of the Giants social media community were quick to express their lack of patience with Sunday’s performance.
Here is what Twitter had to say about the game:
Terrible showing by the Giants offense. Took a step backward.— Patricia Traina (@Patricia_Traina) September 30, 2018
Eli drops back to pass...— Complex Sports (@ComplexSports) September 30, 2018

DG gave Eli an elite RB prospect in Saquon to go along with a Top 5 WR in OBJ, and he still can't move the ball downfield w/regularity & score points.
Too many checkdowns, short yardage plays. OL notwithstanding, Eli misses chances when given time. #Giants
This latest Giants loss looked much like many over the past 5 years. The offense just wasn’t good enough. They had 193 yards of total offense midway through the fourth quarter. They failed to reach 20 points for the third time in four games during their 33-18 loss to the Saints.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) September 30, 2018
You know who the Giants miss on offense? Evan Engram. No vertical threat at tight end.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) September 30, 2018
This defense did everything asked of it. Don't blame them. #Giants— Pat Leonard (@PLeonardNYDN) September 30, 2018
While this game was more of the same, there is still plenty of time for the Big Blue to turn their season around. In their next four games they face off against the Panthers, Eagles, Falcons, and Redskins. For now Giants fans will have to deal with same bad taste in their mouth.
