Sanchez and Manning after last night's game having a few laughs together

The New York Giants and the New York Jets played last night in the New Meadowlands Stadium now renamed the MetLife Stadium in their annual preseason game. However, it did not turn out well for both offenses on either side as their play was sloppy with Eli Manning of the Giants throwing two interceptions and Mark Sanchez being inconsistent. The reason why the Jets won the game was because of their defense and special teams, which they pride themselves on so much, but the key factor is Mark Sanchez’s poise throughout the game. He knew he wasn’t playing well neither was his offense, but staying poised and making plays is all that mattered because sooner or later the big play was going to come; indeed it did when he found Santonio Holmes for the touchdown that put the Jets up for good.Eli knows the Giants have many things to work on if they want to be a title contender, but he’s mostly worried about his receivers running good routes because they have cost him a huge number of interceptions since the 2009 season.The ground game for the Giants was average, but the Jets have reason to worry because their running game is sub-par than what we’re use to seeing ,but both teams have time before their openers to brush up on plays, but for now, the Jets are the kings of New York, until Christmas Eve.

Giants first preseason game a debacle

14 Aug

The New York Giants visited the Carolina Panthers today to take on a team that placed last in the NFC with the highly touted rookie quarterback, Cam Newton. All eyes were on the heisman trophy winner, Cam Newton who had a sub par performance in his debut for the Carolina Panthers. He went 8 for 19 and threw for 134 yards in the game, but showed signs of promise throughout his first two drives to the red zone, which produce a pair of field-goals. On the other hand, Eli Manning of the New York Giants seemed a bit shaky and failed to produce any points in the five series he played during the game. The panthers look like they’re headed in the right direction, while the giants are still trying to figure out their identity, but is it too early to predict that the giants seem headed for disaster once again and this time, Tom Coughlin could be on his way out? Luckily, for giants’ fans it’s only preseason and they still have time to figure out a winning formula that will work.
