What a shame.

Adding to the fact that the whole team let their guard down after the Saints game hurts even more.

This team had so much promise...

Actually the Eagles and Washington games where more important and they lost by a total of 3 points.

I had a bad feeling about those 2 losses too. Shame we came up short by a few points. Never should have lost tha Wash game. Tynes cost us 3 pts that game.

Not really...if they had promise they wouldn't have been shutout in Atlanta and embarrassed in Baltimore.

The difference between winning NFCE and not was those 3 points we lost to Washington and Dallas. I mean If our coaches just decided to kick the FG vs Philly they'd have 9 wins right now and we'd still have destiny in our own hands

Tynes miss allowed the Steelers to go down field and score a TD. I'm not going to pin the Eagles loss on him because Coughlin should have ran one more play. In the Washington game, had Tynes made it, we would have been up by more points in a game where the offense and defense were getting the calls against them.

The Steelers game was a loss but the other two where more important as they where divisional games. An interception in the red zone was more to blame for the loss against the Eagles. In the Washington game they attempted 4 filled goals and missed one. If hey scored more TD's in the red zone they would have won that game.

No it wasn't.

Had they not been greedy and not attempted to get a few more yards, Tynes would have been closer to kick the FG. Instead, we get penalized, Coughlin gets scared to allow to the offense to conjure up one more play, and he allows his kicker to miss a FG..twice.

Pretty hard to do when refs are calling players for holding and turning 3rd and short into 3rd and long.

The refs where not out to get the Giants. They failed like they did all season in the red zone.

You're joking, right? The offense was in a position to win and they only needed a FG, and you're seriously going to point the blame on the offense for not getting a TD? Well, ****, I'm just curious if you also blame QBs like Rodgers and Brady for leading their respective teams down the field and allowing their kicker to win the game for them?

I'm sorry, but when your team keeps getting flagged, hard to point the blame on the offense and defense.

What are you talking about? He threw an interception in the red zone. Another failure in the red zone instead of a TD. If you keep getting flayed stop committing penalties.

The penalties were in the Redskins game; the Eagles game, he still lead them down field. They still had a chance to win it.
