New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin — who led his team to a Super Bowl victory last February — is absolutely distraught over missing the playoffs. “I can't even describe how it hurts. I don’t know what to do,” Coughlin told WFAN’s Mike Francesa. “I’m walking around here like a crazy man. I am. I don’t know what to do with myself. We shouldn’t be doing this right now. The pain of it is almost indescribable.”

  • Coughlin is right to be pissed. The team played like they were going to turn up their performance level when ever they chose to. Beating the packers and 49ers and saints then dismal, embarrising performance against atlanta and the ravens when they could have won the division. They dont get it I guess. Antrel Role was telling them early on to play togrther on defense. But the offense had its share of ineppitude also. A few key injuries affected the offense, but they should have adjusted the game plans when Amad Bradshaw could't run hard, and WR Nicks could not get open. Other teams do! But I think they had an attitude of 'we will be ok' instead of 'we will do what it takes to win'. Same for the 'D'.
  • I would be pissed also if I was Tom....this team has way too much talent to be on the outside of the playoffs. Osi says he may have played his last season as a Giant, I sure as hell hope so. Thanks for the memories Osi but you were a dog this season, as well as the rest of the D Line. They will go into next season with an explosive back in Wilson but he is still a work in progress. Bottom line is the defense has to step it up big time...No Excuses.
