The New York Giants are feeling dwarfish after discovering minutes later that, thanks to the Bears, they won’t be qualified for the dance that they’ve successfully dominated in the last half of this decade.
Since 2007, Eli Manning and Head Coach Tom Coughlin have celebrated two Super Bowls victories.

In reasoning with his team’s last couple falling-outs, he confessed that there were no answers – and immediately reassured his support for his team, saying that he was proud of the men and the way they played today.

There is an obvious reason why the New York Giants went from a Super Bowl champion to a frustrated team that missed the playoffs.
It's consistency. Tom Coughlin's team lacked it in 2012 despite finishing with the same 9-7 record as a year ago when a late rush took them to their second title in five seasons.
This year there was no late rush. Just two bad games against Atlanta...
In reality, this all could have happened last year for the New York Giants.
If not for a Victor Cruz 99-yard touchdown catch against the New York Jets, or if not for a spirited blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, the New York Giants never would have won their second Super Bowl in four years.
