Redskins - Giants: Q2

The Redskins are not doing any of the things needed to win this one.

They are not controlling the ball.
They are not avoiding turnovers.
They are not pressuring Eli Manning.
They are not taking Tiki Barber out of the game. That one's a killer.

The O-line is not protecting, perhaps because the Giant secondary is covering well. Can't see that on TV, but it is clear that Mark Brunell has no one to throw to. That means the line must block longer.

You have to hope Gibbs comes up with one of his half-time adjustments to fix this. That's a hope and a stretch, because I didn't see anything on the offense or defense that suggests the Skins pull this out.
