The votes to our most recent poll are in, and a whopping 54 percent of you said the Giants' biggest problem right now is offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride's gameplan.
Of the 210 who voted before today's 5 p.m. deadline, 114 blamed it all on Gilbride, who has come under much fire from you folks over the past few years. Granted, some of it is deserved, like when he turns predictable once the offense gets close to the goal line. But, c'mon, people. Eli checks out of a run to throw a bomb out of bounds to Mario Manningham on third-and-2? That's not Gilbride's fault. Unless, of course, you're suggesting Tom Coughlin remove the ability to change a play from Manning's list of adjustments.
The secondary -- and no, we're not just talking about C.C. Brown here -- was the second most popular culprit. The DBs drew 39 votes, or 18 percent. The pass rush's ineffectiveness drew 31 votes, or 14 percent, and Manning's current spate of inaccuracy drew 23 votes, or 10 percent.
Brandon Jacobs, whose rushing problems seemed cured in a 13-carry, 76-yard, one-touchdown outing against the Cardinals, came out nearly unscathed. Only three people, a mere 1 percent of the vote, came out for him. Even Ralph Nader had a couple of more votes in his run against Obama. But Jacobs shouldn't feel bad. This poll was like one big golf game -- the fewer strokes, the better.
We'll do more polls down the road. Thanks to Wayno2424 for suggesting the poll in the first place. I don't know about you folks, but I feel just a little more American for it.
