The Giants played as badly as they did in Atlanta a week ago, to the point where I wondered why they bothered to make the trip. A forfeit would have been more dignified and honest.
It's hard to fathom how Eli Manning became one of the worst quarterbacks in the league over the last 11 weeks and an absolute killer in fantasy (h/t Scott Pianowski). And the defense is even worse, simply unable to rush the passer, cover receivers or tackle.
One of the craziest stats in all of football is that the Giants have been 6-2 or better in the first half of every season since Tom Coughlin took over except 2004 when they started 5-2 and finished 6-10 and 2009 when they started 5-0 and finished 8-8. In other words, in nine seasons, the Giants have started off 6-2 six times, 7-1 once, 5-2 and 5-0. That all sounds great until you consider how reliable their terrible finishes are, mitigated greatly of course by two improbably Super Bowl runs.

Despite being advised by Justin Tuck to stop celebrating with backflips, David Wilson went with his usual antics against the Ravens.
Are the Giants are trying to miss the playoffs?
Here are my Power Rankings and a quick note about each team.
1) San Francisco - Don't panic, Seattle doesn't lose at home.
2) Texans - They are solid on both sides of the ball.
3) Patriots - Suspect defense keep them from the top spot.
4) Denver - On the rise, are they a Super Bowl sleeper?
5) Falcons - They need...
Another week, another blowout loss for the suddenly sinking G-Men, who've went from first to finished in the span of two games.
The postseason is now a pipe-dream for New York, and a furious Jason Pierre-Paul believes his team doesn't belong in the tournament.
“Do we deserve it by the way we played? Do we?” Pierre-Paul said, via the Daily News. “I don’t think so...
What a difference a year has made for the New York Giants. Much like this time last year, the Giants entered the final week of the season looking to secure a postseason berth, which they did with a win over the Cowboys at home. This year, the Giants have a similar chance to get into the postseason, albeit as a wild card, if they win their season finale against the Eagles and...
The New York Giants won't go down without a fight despite throwing away control of their playoff destiny with lopsided losses the past two weeks.
Coach Tom Coughlin was perplexed Monday when asked about the embarrassing losses to Atlanta and Baltimore that have left the defending Super Bowl champions needing a ton of help to get back to the postseason.
New York (8-7) has to...

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck could be playing his final game with the team this weekend. Justin Tuck
Tuck could be released by the team this off-season. He has a meager three sacks this season after having just five sacks last season.
He is due to make $4.5 million next year in the final...
With the Giants on the brink of seeing their playoff hopes completely vanish -– New York is still mathematically alive but will need a lot of help to get in -- defensive end Osi Umenyiora said he's reflected a bit over his career with the NFL team that drafted him, and has come to accept that there is a "very real possibility" that this is his final season as a Giant...
After this years disappointing performance the New York Giants are going to need to make some wholesale changes, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Many complain about the secondary but one of the main problems is that their defensive line has gotten old and bad, very fast and that’s the strength of the defense. Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com suggests that the team could...
The New York Giants could still be a playoff team even after a 33-14 setback to the Baltimore Ravens.
It's a complex (and unlikely) scenario, but one thing was settled at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The only resemblance this Giants team has to last season's championship squad or the one in 2007 that also won a Super Bowl is the "NY" on the side of their helmets...
Eli Manning might want to change his nickname from "Easy" to "Woozy" after the consecutive beatdowns the New York Giants quarterback has gone through over the past two weeks.
Last Sunday's 34-0 blowout by the Atlanta Falcons was compounded by yesterday's ugly 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens which left the Giants signal caller looking for more than...
The New York Football Giants look like they once again forgot that nothing is handed to you, especially in the NFL! This time it looks to be too late, needing a win against Philly, a Cowboy loss to Wash, Green Bay to beat Minnesota, and the Bears to fall to a Lions team that cannot get out of it’s own way, just to make the playoffs. It was just last season where they were...
The finals have come and gone in most leagues. Hopefully many of you are celebrating championships. Inevitably, most aren’t. After looking at what happened in Week 16, we’ve put together the Fantasy Football Lumps of Coal Team.
This team could very well have been a legitimate starting team in the championships…and completely fell on its face. Without further delay, let’s...
After an embarrassing loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, the New York Giants will need a ton of help next week in order to make the playoffs. The G-Men have to beat the Philadelphia Eagles at home and have the Dallas Cowboys lose or tie, the Minnesota Vikings lose and the Chicago Bears lose. Stranger things have happened, but the chances are looking slim. As for that 33-14 loss...
The New York Giants entered Week 15 atop the NFC East, seemingly in position to go on one of their patented late-season runs. Instead, they lost by a combined score of 67-14 to the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens.
The Giants still could make the playoffs with a win Sunday and a whole lot of help, but their season is all but over after an embarrassing performance against the...
