“We know that he has been in the building and worked in the conditioning area,” Coughlin said. “I would expect he’s a player who has been in on all the meetings and conditioned himself very, very well.”
With his Giants sitting at 3-6 and preparing to host the 49ers this Sunday at MetLife Stadium, Tom Coughlin is looking for his Big Blue Crew to ‘stand tall.’
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.
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.
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.
It’s impossible to predict which Giants will show up Sunday in Seattle. But we know one thing for sure – coach Tom Coughlin is bringing a wounded roster to the West Coast.
It’s not about passion or heart or even injuries. The head coach believes the buck stops with him. Bottom line.
Heading into the second half of what has been a disappointing season, the New York Giants need a lot more than consistency on offense and fewer big plays allowed on defense.
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.
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.
Reese wants the offense and defense to be more aggressive in the final nine games, and feels the NFC East will tighten up before the season ends. The Giants will be in that race, he said.
The Giants are on the brink of falling off the side of the mountain, but they have a fighting chance because they have Coughlin and Manning.
Unless the Giants can find at least two wins in the next four games against Indianapolis, Seattle, San Francisco and Dallas, their collective gooses will be fricasseed for a third straight season.
The Giants need to split their next four games or they will split on the season. That’s not up for debate. Not even the Giants can rebound from the depths this year.
