The New York Football Giants (3-4) looked to restart their season against the first-Place Dallas Cowboys (6-1) after a disappointing loss last week to the Philadelphia Eagles. But New York did not particularly fare well on either side of the football in another losing effort, 31-21 at AT&T Stadium.
The front seven — specifically LBs Jameel McClain, Jon Beason and Jacquian Williams — must hold their ground and fill those rushing lanes in order to contain DeMarco Murray.
When asked if he was unimpressed by the intellect of the Giants, the Philly center said on WIP radio, “That is correct. They are a good football team, though. But, yes.”
Narrated by actor Bradley Cooper, the video called out Giants fans, calling them the “Big Apple’s big talkers.”
The fourth quarter contained the worst infractions: a punt return allowed for a TD, four dropped passes and two lost fumbles.
The 2014 season is beginning like a repeat of the 2013 campaign for the New York Football Giants. Even with Arizona starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined with a bad shoulder, the G-men could not take advantage of backup Drew Stanton seeing his first action since 2010 and handed the Cardinals a 25-14 victory at the Meadowlands.
The New York Giants head into their home opener relatively healthy, with the exception of punter Steve Weatherford, who suffered torn ligaments in his ankle against Detroit on Monday. For the Arizona Cardinals, starting running back Andre Ellington has not practiced much this week, and quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable with a sore right shoulder.
Even when the Giants finally scored their first touchdown, they needed four plays to reach the end zone from a yard out. And that was one of the highlights.
The New York Giants were doomed for failure in 2013 by starting the season with an 0-6 record. In 2014, there are plenty of new faces in the fold, but Big Blue once again laid an egg on opening day, losing to Detroit 35-14 in a Monday Night Football dud.
Forget last year’s disappointment. Forget the struggling offense. Forget the predictions that the Eagles will win the NFC East. Throw it all out the window. That’s what Jason Pierre-Paul is doing.
After missing the playoffs the past two seasons, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants aren’t one of the morning-line favorites to get back to the postseason.
It might be time to stop worrying about New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.
Big Blue coach Tom Coughlin knows what to do with last season’s 7-9 record. Let it burn, baby!
