Though we got the first down with that Barkley run - it was all on barkley. He could have easily been stopped. Manning had ALL DAY against the worst secondary in the league and to me that is an absolutely unacceptable pass
Do you honestly expect anything different?
Eli doesn't look downfield. There's so much tape on him from the past 1.5 seasons demonstrating it.
Sad thing is, that'll go down as a completed 10 yard pass even though that was all Barkley.

Pressure in his face every time. The 2nd down play had time for another short pass, but not if he wanted downfield. That's what I see, every time they want to go downfield, the pressure doesn't allow it. The D can only hold out for so long. This O-Line, making another bad D look like a juggernaut. Drive dead as soon as Beckham gets the false start. We can't afford any negative plays at all if 3 or 4 yards per play is going to do the trick.
