Found November 21, 2011 on Shutdown Corner:
Two weeks ago, everybody was praising the New York Giants and their ability to get things done with major injuries to their secondary, a group of young linebackers, a revived front four, and the improved efforts of Eli Manning. Then came two straight close losses — one to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10 and another to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night — and now, things are less than happy in Big Blue. At 6-4, the G-Men are still very much in the fight for the NFC East, but don't tell head coach Tom Coughlin that.

The Eagles Do It to the Giants Again

Whenever Tom Coughlin does end his run as coach of the New York Giants, there's a decent chance that he'll write a book. When he does write that book, one of the most interesting chapters is going to be the one that discusses why his Giants teams have such an alarming propensity to play flat, uninspired football in games that they absolutely have to win. One of the games...

OFFENSE (F) Coach Tom Coughlin called the rushing attack “pathetic,” and he was being kind. Line was brutal, offering no protection for Eli Manning (18 of 35, 264 yards), who was off the mark and under duress. Victor Cruz (6-128, 1 TD) was the lone bright spot. Brandon Jacobs (12-21...
