The Giants are as unwatchable of a team in the NFL as any this season. Things did not get any better Sunday, as they took another loss, this time to the Miami Dolphins -- 20-9. A major contributor to the Giants' defeat was the offenses' failure to execute.
The G-men fall to 4-8 on the season, sitting at last place in the NFC East. A two-time Super Bowl champion and former Giants legend Carl Banks made an appearance on Bleav In Giants Podcast where he completely unloaded on Big Blue.
"My wish and I’m not telling the fans, I’m telling the player, coaches, figure it the f–k out," Banks said. "When there are plays to be made, make the f–king play. Be intentional about your assignment. Value every possession like you won’t get another one because you don’t when you don’t execute. Just know the assignment.”
Banks, who is currently a radio broadcaster for WFAN, did not hold back any criticism of their latest loss and called it 'his lowest moment as a former Giant, as a fan, as a broadcaster.” He was particularly critical of the performance of Saquon Barkley, who finished with just 74 yards.
“It’s now at the point where it’s gonna be labeled inconsistent from you,” Banks said. “… He’s gotta be able to make those plays.”
The former Giants great then criticized Joe Judge for not publically acknowledging that the team needs to get better, but also admires him for trying to not completely lose hope.
“Operationally, he’s got a lot to fix. “These delay of game calls, the planning of how to operate in certain situations, it just seems that they miss it every week. The Giants’ “entire operation is broken."
Well if I had the keys to the Porsche, I would blow the whole thing up, which includes firing David Gettleman, trading Barkley and giving Daniel Jones a year or two to prove what he's got.
New York is on its way to missing the playoffs for the ninth time in a row in the last ten seasons. The last time they were in the playoffs was that infamous Wild Card game they lost in Green Bay and caused a huge controversy after Odell Beckham Jr. took a picture on a yacht with his then-teammate Sterling Sherpard and Trey Songz. Many talking heads pointed to this vacation before a playoff game as the reason for some of the team's lack of focus, including OBJ's poor performance that day.
“They like the idea of knowing what a big game is, what an assignment is, but the work that’s required — it’s not there,” said Banks, who was a key part of two Giants Super Bowl teams.
