Texas head coach Mack Brown is retiring after 16 seasons, with his final game to be the Dec. 30 Alamo Bowl against Oregon.
Neil Keefe has become an expert when it comes to Giants collapses. There are certain signs of a collapse he’s grown familiar with during the Tom Coughlin era and especially over the last two years. Those signs came out on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium.
After a great week of practice, safety Antrel Rolle says the Giants were prepared to take on the Eagles. But the distinction he made next came as a surprise.
What a football game it wasn’t! How (not) fun!
The Giants are on the descent, an annual ritual among faithful watchers of Big Blue. And it’s their own fault.
Coach Tom Coughlin made no excuses for how his Giants, specifically, the offense, failed to bring the proper intensity needed to beat the desperate Philadelphia Eagles. The horror show was all on tape, anyway.
Tom Coughlin didn’t mince words. “This is as big a disappointment as we have had around here in a long time,” he said after the Giants’ poor showing Sunday night.
Last year, the Eagles destroyed the Giants’ season with a 28-point onslaught in the final seven minutes. This time, Andy Reid’s team used a slow and excruciating method to hurt Big Blue once again.
Eli Manning and the Giants fumbled on their final drive in the fourth quarter to lose to their division rivals 17-10.
“We’ll just see how the week goes,” Andy Reid said of Vick on Thursday. Well, the Eagles have reportedly made up their mind.
This may be the most challenging portion of the Giants’ schedule, and not just because they need to grind out wins against some of their most difficult opponents.
Who will it be under center for the Eagles against the Giants? Michael Vick? Vince Young? Mike Kafka?
McElroy, starting for Mark Sanchez, left after injuring his right thumb in the second quarter. QB Vince Young also left the game with a hamstring injury.
In a surprising move, the Tennessee Titans have parted ways with Jeff Fisher, who was the NFL’s longest-tenured coach. With Fisher out, will Tennessee look toward Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell?
An injured Vince Young tossed his shoulder pads and No. 10 jersey into the stands following Tennessee’s 19-16 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
