It was a win against the Rams

Ok, admit it if you were a Giants fan you were impressed by yesterday's win. They let the Rams hang in there for a little bit and then shut the casket on the game with some pivotal plays. So far it is looking like the loss of Osi Umeyoira hasn't hindered the Giants pass rush at all. Justin Tuck looks like not only a star but a super star. He now has 3 sacks in the first 2 games and in yesterday's game he had a 41 yard interception return for a touchdown.

The defensive backfield looked great at times and even the Rams touchdown was on a pass in which Kenny Phillips tipped leading to Tory Holt making a circus catch in the end zone. Kevin Dockery and Cory Webster had some nice pass break ups.

The Giants are showing that they can and will run over anybody in sight. All three of the backs got involved, Brandon Jacobs leading the way with 15 carries for 93 yards. Bradshaw finally got some carries and averaged 10.4 yards a touch including a 31 yard break away on 3rd and 2 in the fourth quarter. He also caught a pass for 18 yards and a touchdown. The Giants on the day averaged 7.5 cards per carry.

Eli played much better yesterday throwing for 3 touchdowns. As usual it was a win for the Giants while wearing there away whites for the 12 straight time when being deemed the away team.

This all being said, it was the Rams, they are just an absolutely pitiful team. They did sack Manning twice but besides that they have obvious flaws on the Offensive line, and Steven Jackson seems worlds away from his 2006 campaign. While that game was exciting and a pretty impressive win, there is no reason to evaluate this team based on that game. Next week the Giants take on the Bengals so I also am not going to be to strong to evaluate them based on that game.
