Craig imagined for a minute what it might be like if Giants head coach Tom Coughlin took his tremendous leadership abilities to a Boy Scout Troop.
Can you say tough love?
If the Giants’ season gets any worse — and with Minnesota and Adrian Peterson coming up Monday night there’s a fine chance it will — one can bet a few changes will be happening shortly after what is affectionately known as “baggie day.”
Tom Coughlin doesn’t have many options at halfback for the winless New York Giants. The choice now is rookie Michael Cox, and that’s it. Yes, Michael Cox.
The Giants’ 0-6 start is the worst for the organization since it lost a franchise-worst nine in a row in 1976, a season that saw coach Bill Arnsparger fired after seven games.
Eli? Coach Coughlin? GM Jerry Reese? You decide!
The Giants were moving the ball, driving for the potential winning score when Eli Manning got picked off one final time. And the losing streak continues.
Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Marshall, and Jennings had two of the Chicago Bears’ three interceptions against Eli Manning in a 27-21 victory over the winless New York Giants on Thursday night.
If somebody is going to take the blame for New York’s miserable start, it’s Tom Coughlin. The 67-year-old coach pointed the finger at himself for the Giants’ worst start since the 1987 strike season.
Ignoring the ignorant cackling from Twitter trolls, and other anonymous hacks sniping from the comfort of their cubicles or hiding behind handles in grandma’s basement, it’s obvious the Giants aren’t anemic under center or the headset.
“(It’s) embarrassing, ridiculous, infuriating, frustrating — whatever you want to say,” Francesa said. “It’s as bad as it could possibly be. It’s not even worth saying the season’s over. Everybody knows the season’s over.
Justin Tuck refuses to blame the New York Giants’ woe-and-five start on quarterback Eli Manning and the team’s struggling offense.
Even if the Giants QB straightens himself out by Thursday’s game in Chicago — another likely loss for 0-6 — it will be far too little, way too late. Like the cops at a crime scene say, “Go home, folks, nothing to see here.”
Manning couldn’t fathom how his team could be keeping company with Jacksonville at the bottom of the standings.
Giants were leading 21-19 in third quarter, but then gave up 17 straight points to drop to 0-5 on the season.
Veteran guard Chris Snee has been placed on injured reserve by the New York Giants and is out for the rest of the season because of an injured hip.
