Giants apologize to fans for awful home loss
From The Star-Ledger:
Listen up, Giants nation. Your team has a message for you.
“The one thing I want to say to our fans, and to a man also, is we’d like to apologize for yesterday,” coach Tom Coughlin said Monday, one day after the blowout loss to the Panthers that knocked the Giants from postseason contention. “For whatever reason, a team that had an awful lot to play for, that had opportunities there, that was playing Giants Stadium for the last regular season game of the Giants, didn’t play up to our capabilities. It’s a very frustrating thing.”
Coughlin wasn’t alone in his remorse.
“I apologize. I wish I had an answer," quarterback Eli Manning said. "I wish we would have come out and played better football. I don’t have the answer to why it happened and why it’s happened throughout the season where we’ve been up and down in our play. We have to find a way to be more consistent. The good teams in this league, they are consistent week in and week out. You might not win every game, but you’re going to be in the fight every game.”
Coughlin went searching for answers by meeting with his leadership council on Monday to discuss why this team has been so inconsistent this season.
“There were a couple of references perhaps to confidence and playing from behind and that kind of thing,” Coughlin said. “But really nothing that you could say that was of great benefit that I could use, for example, in a planning way going forward.”
Sounds like it’s time for a new leadership council.
