The Giants offensive line were overwhelmed
For the first time in a while the New York Giants’ offense looked like they didn’t have an answer for an opposing defense during this past Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
“They were doing like a 4-4 heavy package, where they brought four linebackers and four d-linemen in. We weren’t expecting that,” Gates said, via Giants Wire. “We had some game time adjustments. We just have to do better. We have to execute better in getting everything going.”
The Giants’ offensive line had a hard time with the stunts that Arizona’s defense was throwing at them.
“They ran a lot of T/E’s and stunt games and twist games inside,” he said. “We just didn’t do a good enough job up front as a line passing those off and giving Daniel the ample amount of time to throw the ball. That’s just on the offensive line. It doesn’t matter if Daniel is healthy or not healthy. That’s up to him to answer those questions, and Coach Judge, but we have to do our job better.”
The Giants have a young offensive line that has been great over the past few weeks. Hopefully for them this is only a minor setback and they can rebound against a very good Cleveland Browns team this coming Sunday night. One problem is that they will have to face off against some good pass rushers in Myles Garrett, Olivier Vernon and company.
