NY Giants get lucky again with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers injured
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that although the quarterback is being analysed week to week to see when he will return, the fractured clavicle will definitely keep him off the field for a few weeks at least. In his absence. Seneca Wallace will be taking over as the quarterback and this could not have come at a worse time for the Packers and a Better time for the Giants.
Wallace has not won a single game starting from 2010. The Giants were 0-6 two weeks before their bye week and then became 2-6, winning both games before getting a week’s worth of rest. But the victory is debatable. The game against Minnesota Vikings wasn’t one that was much of a challenge. The Vikings were playing Josh Freeman for the first time and same went for the Philadelphia Eagles. Their inapt QB Michael Vick was replaced by a worse Matt Barkley. Sufficient to say, luck was on the Giants side and they had it easy.
Coach McCarthy said that Wallace was feeling better and his recocvery was going better than expected,making an early return possible. With him on their side again, he said that the team would once again play offense old school like it used to.
But luck isn’t the only factor that enabled the Giants to break their humiliating 6 game losing streak. They have drastically improved on their defence which has stemmed the bleeding by some. Linebacker Jon Beason has been doing well, with better rushing skills and improved gameplay.
