Football is a fraternity, and NFL players rarely criticize each other publicly, especially when it comes to matters of discipline. That changed Monday.
The New York Giants were doomed for failure in 2013 by starting the season with an 0-6 record. In 2014, there are plenty of new faces in the fold, but Big Blue once again laid an egg on opening day, losing to Detroit 35-14 in a Monday Night Football dud.
