"It's about as pathetic as you can get". The words of coach Tom Coughlin who rips the NY Giants during his post game press conference after a 17-10 loss against the Philadelphia Eagles week 11.
He looked angry, frustrated and confused while answering questions from the media. He called out his players and questioned their discipline and effort for such an important NFC East game. When asked about the pass rush in classic Tom Coughlin form he replied
I didn't see much of that either
You have to feel for the fiery coach as he tries to keep calm during the press conference, here is the video.
Tom Coughlin Post Game Press Conference Week 11
It only gets harder from here, this was a must have game which was very winnable. New York will now face some of the best teams in the NFL including the Saints next week, the Green Bay Packers, Jets, Cowboys and Redskins.

Tom Coughlin ripped his offense -- in particular his offensive line -- when he spoke after Sunday night's loss, noting that they were "completely outplayed" and calling the 29 rushing yards they produced "about as pathetic as it can get."

After two straight losses and games against the Saints and Packers up next, we suppose this was inevitable. “[Coughlin] knows as…
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...
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...
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...
