Ken Palmer asked head coach Jim Fassel if he expected to run special teams practice faster or with more contact in order to see more rapid improvement.
Fassel responded that he would continue to run special teams practice as is, with minimal contact, walking through asssignments. He believes the poor tackling is coachable. But consistency from the punters and kickers has got to improve in order for the Giants to be successful this season.
PK Owen Pochman missed a 37-yard field goal that would have given the Giants a lead in the fourth quarter. The Jody Littleton snap hit the field before holder Jason Garrett grabbed it and tried to recover.
Fassel did give Pochman him "a pass" because of a bad snap, but he was still unhappy with the overall play.
Pochman had no touchbacks on four kickoffs and was penalized for one kickoff that went out of bounds.
. Punter Rodney Williams didn't do much better in his Saturday outing. Williams punted five times for an average of 36.8 yards, with none getting inside the 20-yard line.
Fassel told NorthJersey.com "I'm not happy with the consistency. I said it before and I'll say it again: When I equate a guy with inconsistency, I equate that to 8-8 seasons. I don't like that."
