Coaches Corner: Giants Offense M.I.A. in loss to the Dolphins

Coaches Corner: Giants Offense M.I.A. in loss to Miamipull off an upset against the Miami Dolphins as the Giants faltered 20-9. The Giants are now 4-8 and must continue on and try to stay competitive in their final 5 games while evaluating their roster for 2022. Here are my Top 4 reasons why the Giants lost.

  • Giants Offense were on snooze control: The Giants offense has struggled all season with a healthy Daniel Jones, but without him today they were just pathetic managing only three field goals.
  • Giants defense runs out of gas: The Giants defense has been playing well over the last several weeks, but against the Dolphins they couldn’t sustain that momentum as they failed to make key stops in key moments of the game.
  • Time of Possession:  The Giants once again allowed an opponent to control the line of scrimmage and to have them play keep away with the ball. The Dolphins offense was on the field for nearly 31 minutes to the Giants 29 minutes.
  • Red Zone: The Giants only managed to get into the red zone one time in this game and as they have done all season needed to settle for a field goal. The Dolphins red zone conversion was perfect (2/2); which embodied the main reason why the Dolphins won and the Giants lost.  

The Giants must carry on and try to stay competitive in their final 5 games while evaluating their roster for 2022. Lots of question marks for this team that starts at the top with GM Dave Gettleman; who will more than likely step down at the end of the season.  

Head Coach Joe Judge and the rest of the coaching staff along with the players on this roster are also auditioning for 2022. Next up for the Giants are the LA Chargers, led by quarterback Justin Herbert who dismantled the Cincinnati Bengals 41-22 to go 7-5.  Keep an eye out for my pre-game prediction and see who I think will win this game.
