Even if you’re not a Big Blue devotee, Sunday had to summon some sense of sadness.
Speaking to the “TBD in the AM” show on CBS Sports Radio on Monday, the Hall of Fame coach said Coughlin’s résumé speaks for itself and he should be given the benefit of the doubt.
How many different ways can a team fritter away chances to win a game? The Giants (3-7) may have an answer to that question by season’s end.
As a fourth-down pass fell to the turf, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. let his helmet fly. The rookie is learning quickly and painfully about losing in the NFL.
New York’s playoff hopes effectively ended Sunday in a rain of turnovers. Now, it’s just a matter of what the final record will look like.
The two-time Super Bowl champion has had a lot of success as a Giant but let’s look at his five worst performances, one of them which came today against the 49ers.
On a day when the New York Giants (3-7) straightened out their defensive woes, the “broken” offense re-emerged, and the result was another loss for Big Blue. Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers (6-4) did just enough to escape the Meadowlands with a 16-10 victory.
San Francisco rookie linebacker Chris Borland intercepted a fourth-down pass by Eli Manning at the 49ers 2 with 4:43 to play capping a goal-line stand in a 16-10 victory Sunday that sent the error-plagued New York Giants to their fifth straight loss.
“He’s talented, he’s smart, he puts himself in the right spot,” Coughlin said. “He is physical. He’s a good young linebacker.”
A sports memorabilia dealer who sued the New York Giants and quarterback Eli Manning for allegedly doctoring equipment to make it appear to be game-worn has scored a legal victory.
And at 3-6 the Giants are woefully lost in the lower half of the NFL, which assures those in the five boroughs and beyond a most flawed and frigid winter. Sadly, this is not an anomaly.
Tom Coughlin isn’t giving up on the Giants. No way. With their playoff hopes dimmed by four straight lopsided losses, the head coach said Big Blue just needs one win to get things going.
The Giants have looked over-matched over the last month, but Eli Manning says that’s just an excuse.
The Giants failed to take advantage of some early chances to grab a generous lead and the Seahawks made them pay with 24 consecutive points over the final 20 minutes. And then, of course, there was the run defense.
Both teams are suffering through hard times right now, but at least the Giants are playing the game with effort and a desire to win. The Bears play as if pride doesn’t exist.
