Giants TE Later Apologizes, Says 'Emotions Got The Best Of Me'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Giants’ season has been disappointing since Week 1.

But in Week 15, it’s officially gotten ugly.

The G-Men, who were eliminated from playoff contention after losing to the Chargers in Week 14, were embarrassed by the visiting Seahawks, 23-0, on Sunday. Quarterback Eli Manning was dreadful, throwing five interceptions and no touchdowns.

Following the game, coach Tom Coughlin called his team’s offense “pathetic.” And according to WFAN’s Paul Dottino, safety Antrel Rolle interrupted his coach’s postgame speech and said that the blame is on the players.

To make matters worse, tight end Brandon Myers vented his frustration on Twitter on Sunday evening.

It’s unclear as to what the 28-year-old was referring to in his tweets, but it would appear that there is some unsteadiness in New York’s locker room.

About an hour after the controversial tweets, Myers posted an apology.

The former Raider caught three passes for 37 yards against Seattle on Sunday. In his first year as a Giant, Myers has played in all 14 games, catching 41 passes for 460 yards and four touchdowns.

Big Blue will have its first losing season since 2004, and has now missed the playoffs four out of the last five seasons.

The Giants will play the Lions at Ford Field this coming Sunday before wrapping up their disappointing campaign against the Redskins at MetLife Stadium on December 29.
