Bucs A Must-Win For Giants?

September 12th, 2012

Gotham is getting nervous. The Super Bowl champs lost their season opener and now face the undefeated Bucs at the New Jersey Swamplands this week. It seems some believe this game is a must-win for the Giants — in the second week of the season! — in this episode of SNY’S “Loud Mouths.”

    The pressure is all on NY for sure, which is great. No one expects us to win that game, and I believe our fast defense will give Eli fits. My main concern is our O-line holding up against the Giants’ pressure. If we can semi-contain the rush, I foresee a close game at least.

    If anyone knows how to design plays and create advantages to neutralize the Giants defense it’s Sullivan. He was in practice against this defense every single day for a long time and knows better than anyone what it takes to have success against them. Having him on staff is a big advantage that should pay dividends in this game.

    Agreed. I think we will see much more passing, sweeps and screens to try to neutrailze there D-line and get into the 2nd level which is there weakness. If anybody knows the Giants it’s sully. As far as this being a “must win” for the Giants, thats just silly talk in week 2.

    Field goals will not get it done this time. Time for the offense to produce.

    The pressure is all on the Giants this week, the Bucs should look to attack the Giants second level of linebackers as the giants have had continuous issues in linebackers for years and have not made any moves (exception of Keith Rivers) to improve this core. As BucFan20 said Field goals will not get it done against the Giants this week so the conservative play calling will not play in effect. When we are on D we should look to see our front four get pressure on the as the Giants line struggles with going up against strong front four pressure. While Cruz looks like a re-incarnation of Michael Clayton (who was also a former Giant last year fyi), I think that he will be much more focused this week. We should also avoid that conservative zone defense that we were playing in the Carolina game (which I’m sure we won’t do), as Eli will eat us alive by picking apart our secondary.

    Side Note- Joe, as a Bucs fan from Jersey I take a little offense to the swamp lands comment. Not all of Jersey is trash that it is portrayed as on television, especially where I am from.
