There have been numerous animated conversations on the New York Giants sidelines throughout final Sunday’s 49-17 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas, however one which had the group buzzing this week.
The one between defensive coordinator Wink Martindale and head coach Brian Daboll. The one whose tv cameras filmed a bit the place the optics have been regarding.
‘I don’t even know. We speak lots throughout the sport. Most likely going into the half, some issues we needed to work on, issues we need to do, however I am having conversations with all these guys,” Daboll advised reporters about it after the sport. “No distinction. Regular issues throughout a match.”
Martindale’s protection has not carried out properly the previous two video games, permitting 30 factors to the Raiders in Las Vegas and 49 factors in Dallas final Sunday. Extra importantly, they appeared extraordinarily disorganized and uncompetitive within the course of, surrendering 600 yards to the Cowboys final week.
Martindale was requested Thursday concerning the dialog with Daboll, which FOX Sports activities discipline reporter Tom Rinaldi reported began earlier than halftime and continued when the 2 males returned to the sector for the third quarter.
“Dabs mentioned one thing about that after the sport and he and I speak on a regular basis, however in these two conditions I talked to him about what occurred as a result of one factor about our protection, we do not surrender a lot. large passing performs and I credit score the secondary to that, and Rome (defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson) and we gave up some large performs within the passing sport, which you all noticed,” Martindale mentioned.
“So I advised him what occurred on the protection. That was it simply earlier than halftime. And when he got here again out, he had simply completed speaking to the trainers at that time and we have been speaking about who at the moment wasn’t going to come back again for the third quarter and that grew to become no matter it grew to become, however there was nothing to it the hand .”
Nonetheless, that is not the way it appeared, and now hypothesis that Martindale might be on his approach out is coming because the Giants’ protection continues to say no.
