The New York Giants opened their 2013 season with a 36-31 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys after failing to take care of the ball. “We turned the ball over five times and muffed a punt,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “Six times we gave the ball away tonight. Six times – that’s my fault. I’m totally, totally disappointed and embarrassed by that kind of football. That’s sloppy, sloppy football. “We have control over ourselves. We have to recognize situations that are going to lead to those kinds of things and then you can’t turn the ball over. You can’t win turning the football over. That’s the bottom line. There are a lot of other things that we can fix…we’re going to fix that, too.” The six turnovers tied the Giants’ single-game record in Coughlin’s 10 seasons as head coach. The Giants had a chance to win the game when they took possession of the ball at their own 17 with 2:41 remaining. Eli Manning hit Rueben Randle for a 26-yard gain.  But on first down from the 48, Manning threw to running back Da’Rel Scott on a screen pass, but the ball bounced off Scott’s arm and right into cornerback Brandon Carr, who returned the ball 49 yards for the touchdown that sealed the win for the Cowboys. “It was just a bad break,” said Manning, who threw four touchdown passes in addition to his three interceptions. “We had a screen called and I thought he would just sit there, I would try to pop it to him, he would make a little move. “Unfortunately, it’s off his arm, I guess, intercepted. It was just a bad break on that one. You’ve got some young running backs and some young guys, and we just have to get on the same page. You know there are going to be mistakes and different things to fix every week. You just hope that the mistakes aren’t costly ones and end up being turnovers. You just can’t afford those.” In addition to three interceptions, running back David Wilson had two fumbles and cornerback Trumaine McBride had another. “They (the running backs) are not going to play unless they hang onto the ball. It’s demoralizing to the whole team. He’s a talented young man. We’ll get him right even if he has to run around the field with two hands on the ball.” The Giants will have to quickly fix their mistakes because Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos visit MetLife Stadium  next week.

David Wilson Receives Support But Tough Love From Giants Teammates, Coach

The Giants say they have not given up on running back David Wilson, but that might be less out of the goodness of their hearts than simple necessity. It’s not like they have anywhere else to really turn.

Here’s the awful body language we’ve come to expect from Eli Manning (GIF)

In case you missed it, Eli Manning had a rough opener last night in Dallas. Peyton’s younger brother threw two interceptions in the Giants’ first three possessions, setting an ugly tone for the rest of the game, in which New York finished with SIX total turnovers. Despite all that, the Giants somehow found themselves within one score late in the game, largely due to Manning...

Bad decisions costly in Week 1

Maybe the first week of the season is a time to get the kinks out. That theory can't sit too well with Greg Schiano, Tom Coughlin, Mike McCarthy and Doug Marrone, coaches whose teams all lost in great part because of undisciplined play. Penalties ranging from silly to absurd (see Levonte David, LB, Tampa Bay). Turnovers. Poor routes by receivers. Missed blocks, most egregiously...

Report: Giants Re-Sign Running Back Brandon Jacobs, Adding Veteran Behind David Wilson

Meast and Least for Week 1

A lot of members of the media are relentlessly eager to laud Peyton for just about anything, so we’re usually a bit resistant to join in, but it’s hard to deny him after he tied an NFL record by throwing seven touchdown passes in a game, not to mention in the season opener against the defending Super...
