" Giants Woeful Again, Jacksonville wins 26-10 "
I don't know what's gotten into Elijah the past month. He has played the worst football of any starting quarterback in the league, to the tune of four fumbles, five picks, a 50% completion rate, and a 2-2 overall record for the G-Men. Now, the competition hasn't been easy - three of those defenses he's come up against have been Chicago, Jacksonville and Tampa Bay. But beyond scheduling difficulties, he looks flat-out frustrated, and last night the running game couldn't bail him out.

The Giants offense has a lot of ugly sides, and lately they've all been showing: Eli's inaccuracy, Plaxico's apathy, Shockey's indignation.. somebody stop the bleeding. I'd say a trip next week to Tennessee would do the trick, but after the Titans trounced Philadelphia on Sunday, even that might not be a given.

I don't think Eli's bad play started the last few weeks.

In my humble opine - every game it seemed I watched Eli either throw the ball too high, or behind the intended receivers.

Heck - even JP Lossman is playing better than Eli.

Hated Plaxico's effort for 95% of the game.

Yeah, I've kind of insinuated that his accuracy has always come into question, but earlier in the year (particularly against Philadelphia) he has found ways to rally this team around him. But his "innacuracy" has become full-blown sloppiness, and his "cool-headedness" is turned into malaise.

It's troubling, but I think you can still reasonably file it under growing pains (for now, anyway.)

I think the G-Men might be in trouble - Dallas with Romo as their QB is looking unstopable at this point.
