Winless in three games and blown out, 38-0, by the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, the New York Giants aren't regarded as quitters by their coach.
“It wasn't pretty, I will say that,” Coughlin told reporters. “But I don't believe that they quit.”
Don't point fingers at each other.
“The one thing that I did stress with our team following the game is what we really needed to do at this point in time is make sure that we stick together,” Coughlin said. “That we stay together, that we are one, that we don't finger point, we don't blame anybody.”
The Giants' defense have allowed 115 points, most in the NFL.
A player's only meeting was held.
“Those things can be good,” quarterback Eli Manning said. “You can talk and we can meet all we want. We got to play better. Got to do a lot of things better than what we are doing right now. That is what it is going to come down to: our performance.”
How will the Giants handle this situation?
“Ours has always been, 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead,'” Coughlin said. “Basically the way we've tried to do it is to be more focused ourselves, more driven and try to transfer those objectives directly to our players and we will continue to do that.”
