Saints on a roll against Giants

Drew Brees is carving up a banged-up Giants defense on Monday night.

New Orleans leads 21-3 at halftime, helped by Brees’ ridiculous 265 yards and three scores.  New Orleans rolled up 354 yards in the first half in a surgical display.

The Giants pass rush isn’t getting home, and the offense isn’t completing drives. The Giants have moved the ball well,  but an Eli Manning interception and a bunch of drops by Giants receivers have stalled things.

New York is in big danger of dropping its third straight game, and really kickstarting that “second half collapse” talk.

UPDATE: Osi Umenyiora has an ankle injury and will not return.

  1. Just like I say every week… the frontrunning Giants always get an easy early schedule, get all the lucky bounces, get everyone talking about how great they are, then they always lay down and crap the bed. Hopefully this will be the last 2nd half collapse for Coughlin so I don’t have to keep looking at his ratfaced “Woe is me” expressions. Goodnight Giants, hope you enjoyed your lucky wins against Zona, Miami, Buffalo, and New England. Your season is over with losses tonight, GB, and Dallas coming.

  2. What a joke the NFL is becoming. That Abdul-Quddus hit was textbook for knocking the ball lose, and they throw a flag. They are penalizing violent hits now, there can be no doubt.

  3. Hey what do you know, the Giants get a BS call on the personal foul on a perfectly clean hit, then Brandon Jacobs excessively celebrates and taunts right in front of the ref and no flag.

    Yeah, the Giants aren’t league favorites….

  4. I really can’t stand Brandon Jacobs. If the ref has to grab your arm and tell you that you’ve celebrated enough, not only should that tell you that you’re a loser, but it should draw a flag.

    And I hate the excessive celebration rule.

  5. Hey jerk-off…when was the last time the ” ‘Skins ” were relevant?? Shut up. Seriously. Shut….up. if anyone should chatter about a team, it most certainly shouldn’t be a Deadskins fan. Have fun with Rex Grossman and John Beck…maybe Ryan Tannehill next year lol.

  6. Skins, get a grip dude, even with all the GIants injuries, your team is 10 times worse.
    they always have a 2nd half collapse, true. But, their best cb has been out all yr, their starting rb is out, their 3 starting lb’s are out, 2 of their 3 back ups are out. their kick returner is out, 2 of their o lineman. Other than that, they are healthy. half their team is their practice squad each week.
    worry about who snyder is going to sign this offseason.

  7. Guess who hopes they pull Brees out of the game early? Me. It’ll give me a win in my fantasy football!!! *crosses fingers* LOL

  8. Same Old Giants.

    Second half collapses beyond a recurring theme at this point.

    Dear Giants Fan,

    This has nothing to do with a “typical” second half collapse. Its just that you played below-average teams the first half of the season, and are just not that good. I know the truth probably hurts, but someone had to say it.

  9. Being from Dallas and living in Louisiana while being a Giants fan is very tough on me. I can’t stand when Coughlin stands on te sideline with that smug, bewildered look on his face everytime something goes wrong. The players feed off the coach. I think this will be his last year along with Jacobs’ stupid ass.

    “Doesn’t change the fact that the Giants will still suffer the inevitable late season swoon. It’s week 3. Talk to me in week 12.”

    Called this one months ago. And I’m loving every minute of it.

  11. So when Graham scored on a TD after taking 5 steps and loses the ball on the ground after crossing the plane and falling out of bounds in similar fashion to the Cinci Gresham TD that was reversed against Balt, what is the difference? 4 steps? Gresham took oneFORWARD step after gaining control and crossed the plane. I think the Saints TD was a correct call, but I also think that the Cinci TD was more simimlar to this play because of the forward step taken than the Calvin Johnson catch.

    Is this a surprise? Drew Brees is a God

    Is that the guy Tebow is always talking about?

  13. Note to Goodell: NFC East is washed up. Quit forcing the country to watch this divel on primetime! 7-4 is not a playoff record!

    “Crap the Bed” coming from a Skins fan?
    “Ratfaced” coach coming from a Skins fan?
    “Lucky wins” coming from a Skins fan?

    I thought I had heard everything…I guess I was wrong.

  15. As a Giants fan, no one should be surprised by this outcome. The Giants personnel and scheme simply do not match up well with the Saints. Especially in a dome. The pash rush does not carry the same impact because Brees is taking 3-5 step drops and getting rid of the ball. The rush not only has a minimal time to get to Brees, but then you throw in the talent of the offensive line and a depleted secondary. We have no running game to keep the Saints offense off the field. Nor do we have consistent pass catchers who can sustain drives. On top of that, the Saints are just a different team at home. Anyone who thought this was going to be a close game or that the Giants may win… well they were living in a fantasy world.

  16. Looks like its coming down to a Packers-Saints NFC Championship….unless somebody pulls a Seahawk upset – Niners, anyone? That’s one team NOBODY will want to play.

    Here we go again with you crying. How is getting an easy schedule, early in the season, an advantage? Getting an easy schedule LATE in the season is the advantage, when a team is banged up and needs rest. Do you watch football?

    Obviously you wouldn’t know what Im talking about, since the Skins have been irrelevant for forever.

    Don’t dissapear from this site on 12/19 after the Giants play the Skins.

  18. This might look similar to a post by EAST96THST. I feel sorry for some of the Giant players but not enough bad things can happen to the Giant fan base

  19. never gonna win with all rookies and injuries galore. This is deja vu. We’ve seen this too many times. I like TC but with the exception of 2007, he has either missed the playoffs or been one and done. It is time for a change.
