Reminds me of the several years ago.
I don't want to get all excited about losing the first game of the year, but after a terrible offseason ansd preseason, they needed to win this game. That was not the real Rex. The real Rex will be sitting the bench by game 6.
I know the Giants had a lot of injuries but the Giants got outplayed and badly might I add. The past few years the Giants would run all over our defense a huge difference from the past few years and made huge key plays the Kerrigan INT, the stop on 4th down, block FG.
The Giants also took a couple stupid penalties the hit on Fred Davis that would have been 4th down and forced the Redskins to punt instead the Redskins would end up scoring a TD to go up 28-14
As good as Rex Grossman played spreading the ball around even with the all the pass rushes the Giants were still putting up the defense deserves a huge credit for the victory.
The Giants get a beat up Rams team next week they better win that because they have the Eagles the week after. 0-3 is possible
