The Giants did nothing right against the defending NFC Champions which, by the way, were missing 10 starters. The Giants couldn’t run the ball (again), they couldn’t pass the ball (again) and they couldn’t get off the field on third down (again).
The promise the team showed in its first two games went out the window in the disgraceful outing, against a backup quarterback no less. The effort against the Rams was much better, but at 0-4, it's tough to find a silver lining due to how little talent this roster fields.
Defensive lineman Leonard Williams estimated the team is “right there.” Williams went on to say in the post-game Zoom conference that they just need to stop beating themselves, fix a few things, and things will be fine.
Hogwash. This roster is not just a “few things” away from winning football games, it’s a ton of things away, starting with the Patrick Graham defense.
Fans who were brave enough to sit and watch the game against the 49ers will, and should be, insulted by Williams’ comments.
The roster just isn’t good enough and that falls on general manager Dave Gettleman. The coaching? That is still to be determined, but it’s not looking good so far after the drubbing San Francisco’s junior varsity team gave them.
