Despite all the “ifs” and uncertainty facing the Giants, head coach Tom Coughlin believes 2015 will be a success, even if it does take a long, arduous offseason to accomplish it.
In 2014, the New York Giants (6-10) committed over $116 million in free agent contracts in order to avoid a repeat of the 2013 season. Unfortunately, injuries derailed Big Blue’s season before it ever started, and the team continues to be a work-in-progress.
The Giants’ enigmatic season ended at 6-10, with an excellent illustration of what they need moving forward.
Tom Coughlin would not address his employment status after Sunday’s season finale: “I’m going to go about my business, just as I always do, until I’m told otherwise.”
The New York Giants (4-9) hoped to get a mini-win streak started after last week’s demolition of the Tennessee Titans in Nashville last week. This week, the dysfunctional Washington Redskins (3-10) came to town, fresh off a shutout loss to the St. Louis Rams and a full blown quarterback contriversy to boot.
Think back to Week 4. It was a long time ago and one of the highlights of the Giants’ season.
“Yeah, if I can stay here, I would love to be a Giant for life,” the defensive end told reporters on Wednesday. “I don’t know what the future has.”
As the New York Giants head toward another season without a sniff of the NFL playoffs, major changes appear to be on the way. What is in store for Big Blue’s defensive unit next year?
The New York Giants (4-9) were finally able to shake the dry spell that saw the team drop its last seven contests. After last week’s disappointment against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Big Blue kept the pedal to the metal in the 36-7 win over the hapless Tennessee Titans (2-12).
The Giants had gone so long between wins they had started dreaming of what it might feel like. After beating the woeful Titans, they don’t need to dream anymore.
Rock bottom? Maybe so, although the way things have gone for the Giants this season…
You know your season has gone to the dogs when you can’t find an answer to a bunch of young Jacksonville cats.
Antrel Rolle didn’t try and avoid what was an obvious description after the Giants watched Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks run wild on Sunday.
His comments followed safety Antrel Rolle’s plea to teammates earlier this week on WFAN radio. While Rolle spoke of “passion,” JPP questioned his team’s pulse.
The New York Giants have a philosophy of not negotiating contracts during the season. Why this unwritten rule remains in place is anyone’s guess. But after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers extended defensive lineman Gerald McCoy this week, the Giants ought to get to work on a Jason Pierre-Paul extension, before it’s too late.
