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.
Can you imagine Harry Carson, Lawrence Taylor, Leonard Marshall or Carl Banks being part of a New York Giants’ defense that gave up 350 yards rushing? Strangely enough, the porous Giants’ defense has largely avoided scrutiny this season, but maybe after the Seattle Seahawks plowed to a 38-17 victory at CenturyLink Field that will change.
It’s not about passion or heart or even injuries. The head coach believes the buck stops with him. Bottom line.

The great effort that was needed to beat the Indianapolis Colts (6-3) never emerged. The Giants (3-5) are reeling again and the prospects for rebounding are not promising.
The Giants dropped the ball — literally — on a chance to jump back into the middle of the pack in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.
The New York Giants (3-5) must play perfect football in order to compete with the better NFL teams. Big Blue was anything but perfect, and the result was a third straight loss. The G-men went down with barely a whimper to the Indianpolis Colts 40-24 on Monday Night Football.
For the past week, Tom Coughlin begged his team to make plays. But the Giants, who dropped their third straight game, didn’t get much from anybody until the game was out of reach.
Luck threw for four touchdowns and the Colts’ defense kept Eli Manning and the Giants off balance Monday night in Indianapolis’ 40-24 romp.
With the playoffs in doubt again, GM Jerry Reese wants to see more — and Moore — from the Giants when they return from the bye on Monday night.
Coming off a bye, the Giants’ line has watched the video of the Steelers’ performance against what had been one of the NFL’s top defenses.
