Glauber's recent Newsday article inspired me to put down some of the thoughts that went through my mind as I suffered through another loss. I've attended three regular season games and each of them have been losses though I left the first one, Pittsburgh at Giants back in 2004, feeling good.

I'm still in the process of defrosting from the miserable Sunday night at the Meadowlands. Let's add Gilbride's name to the list of people that should be let go from the Giants organization. Coughlin promoted him from QB coach to offensive coordinator this season. Are you kidding me? Why would you promote a guy who's done such a poor job of coaching your 'star' quarterback, someone the Giants paid dearly for? Coughlin is senile.

In all fairness to Eli just this once, considering the conditions, many of the passes from Eli found their mark, but the receivers just couldn't hold on. He did have many missed opportunities where he just didn't see the field well (as always). Again, why Gilbride? Why bother calling all those passes? His first stint as an offensive coordinator last year was against the Redskins, and in that game they put 261 yards on the ground! Seems like he was getting too cute this time around.

On the few times he called on the running game, Gilbride kept going left. I don't think he was watching the same game we were. Just looked through the play by play above and tallied up the runs by Jacobs. 15 attempts to the left netting 47 yards, 2 attempts up the middle netting 8 yards and 8 attempts to the right netting 75 yards. Hello, McFly? 9.375 average to the right, 4 up the middle and 3.13 to the left. I don't care what defensive looks the Redskins were giving the Giants, what field position they had, and obviously the game plan should have been burned halfway through the first quarter; they should have kept going right.

In three instances he ran two back to back running plays to the left side. What did that net Giants? 1 yard, 8 yards, 3 yards. They ran back to back running plays to the right once and that netted them 19 yards. That healthily beats all three back to back runs to the left side! On the left, most runs were 5 yards and under, there were two occasions where Jacobs ran for 9 yards on the left. On the right, most of the runs went for 8 yards or more. Three of them went for 17 yards, 18 yards and 13 yards. COME ON this isn't fucking NASCAR, you can go right. Someone should have stepped in and taken away the play calling duties from Gilbride.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as Manning, Coughlin and Gilbride are around, we'll never get close to a Super Bowl. Kick them to the curb. I wish Eli threw some snowballs that night, maybe security could have ejected him from the game like they did with many of the fans around us.
