The Giants sure know how to put an exclamation point on a win.
With Eli Manning resting comfortably on the sideline, Sage Rosenfels came in for a 19-play, 13 minute fourth quarter drive that only included runs. That mercifully capped a 41-7 victory for the Giants in Charlie Whitehurst’s first NFL start at quarterback for Seattle. Whitehurst completed 12-of-23 passes for 113 yards, one score, and two interceptions.
It’s been an embarrassing two weeks for the Seahawks, who have lost by a combined score of 74-10 against the Raiders and Giants.
Seattle is 4-4 and tied for the NFC West lead, but they are far from a quality team. Quality teams don’t get blown out like this, no matter how many injuries they have. Quality teams don’t lose by 17 in Denver or 20-3 in St. Louis.
The Seahawks haven’t scored in double figures in any of their losses. It sounds weird, but I think Pete Carroll has actually done a nice coaching job winning four games with this group.
The Rams, Cardinals, and even the 49ers have to realize the division is for the taking.
