The Giants came out and played harder, faster and with more intensity than the Patriots for the first three quarters of the game. If the Giants offense would not have started taunting the Pats Defense near the end of the third quarter, the game might have turned out differently. I was close to the field and could hear a lot of jawing by the Giants players. Even the Giants on the sidelines were taunting. Other observations: 1.) Now that the records are out of the way, can Brady please go back to hitting the open receiver and taking what the defense gives. We are so much better as an offense when the guy that fights to get open gets the ball. 2.) Watson was beyond rusty as a receiver and blocker. He looked bad!!!!! 3.) We desperately need a pass rush. When Vrabel was in coverage, as he was most of the night, we struggled to get pressure without blitzing. 4.) Thomas is not the answer at OLB as a run defender or pass rusher. He needs to go back inside next season. 5.) IF we can't get excited and match our opponents speed and intensity from snap#1, our playoff run will be short. Maybe they were tight because of the perfection streak, maybe the Giants played over their heads with their hair on fire, whatever it was, we just couldn't match them and they took it to us a bit. Now is the time to correct that.
