Josh Brown’s 45-yard overtime field goal lifted the Giants to a 23-20 win over Detroit. The Lions are now eliminated from postseason contention.
Jim Schwartz started the season on the hot seat and it might be scalding after another collapse. Losing four of five has likely hurt his job security.
The Lions have taken more undisciplined penalties than any other team in football throughout Schwartz’s tenure. Whether it’s a motion or offside penalty before the snap or an unnecessary roughness or a late hit call after the play, Schwartz’s team never seems to learn.
Tom Coughlin is being wrapped in the cliche that all coaches must leave eventually because his messages, mantras, and mindset have an expiration date. It’s patently false. And, frankly, Coughlin is the one who taught us this.
For the first time – at least publicly – a rift could be developing between the struggling, mistake-prone offense and a defense that has been asked time and time again to keep the team in games.
The offense never got into gear, failing to cross the 50 until nearly seven minutes remained in the game.
“If ppl on this team wanna take shots at me an say I have no passion they are mistaken. I give everything I have each an every week,” Brandon Myers tweeted.
Tom Coughlin has had enough with the Giants’ offense. “Pathetic” was the word Coughlin used after the Giants (5-9) were limited to 181 total yards on Sunday and were shut out by the Seahawks.
Giants safety Antrel Rolle interrupted Tom Coughlin’s locker room speech to passionately defend his coach.
The Seattle Seahawks picked off five Eli Manning passes and manhandled the New York Giants 23-0 Sunday.
In the past week, Geno Smith took an important step. He readjusted his game, at the urging of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, and stopped trying to be perfect. He got back to running with the football. He played more freely.
The Giants will be without defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul for a third straight game.
“I didn’t even notice it was down,” Giants quarterback Eli Manning said Wednesday. “I didn’t really notice when it was up, either.”
The so-called countdown clock to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium is apparently in the trash along with the Giants’ season.
Tom Coughlin felt the Giants were regaining some respectability. That is until they got off to a terrible start and went on to a 37-14 loss to the Chargers on Sunday and were eliminated from the playoff picture.
