    COUGHLIN: TIME FOR 12TH MAN TO GET LOUD

    "Whether it was the Polo Grounds, where Charlie Conerly was the quarterback,
    or Yankee Stadium, where Y.A. Tittle called signals, or Giants Stadium during
    the Phil Simms era, the Giants have
    largely enjoyed a tangible home-field advantage that was intimidating for
    opponents and inspiring to the home team.


    So far that hasn’t been the case at MetLife Stadium, where the seats are
    state of the art but the on-field product at times has been second rate. The
    Giants are 8-6 since the building opened and a mediocre 3-3 this season,
    including ugly losses to the Seahawks and Eagles. On paper that nullifies
    whatever psychological edge the Giants might have playing their final three
    games of the regular season in their home building.







    UPDATES FROM
    OUR GIANTS BLOG




    The Redskins are in town Sunday, followed by a Christmas Eve showdown against
    the Jets when the Giants technically will be the visitors. The regular season
    concludes with the Cowboys coming east on New Year’s Day. The Giants, leaders in
    the NFC East, may need to win all three to ensure a spot in the postseason.




    That’s why Tom Coughlin all but
    made a public plea for Giants fans to step up their game during this final
    stretch.




    “Our fans getting into this game, this time of the year, the excitement of
    this time of the year, being in position, having all these games be very
    meaningful, very critical, I think it’s very important that we’re home and I
    think it’s very important that the 12th man really, really be excited about this
    time of the year,” the coach said.




    It wasn’t exactly the “This is our house” speech in the movie “Rudy,” but
    clearly the Giants head coach hopes the home crowd will give his team a lift
    over the next three weeks.




    “Hopefully, it’s going to be a huge advantage for us,” he said.




    It hasn’t been thus far. The Giants, 5-3 at home last year, have lost their
    last two homes games against the Eagles and the Packers, though the Giants view
    those losses differently. They failed to match the intensity of the Eagles and
    were whipped physically in losing 17-10 in November. But they went toe-to-toe
    against the unbeaten Packers, who kicked a game-winning field goal with no time
    left to pull out a 38-35 win.




    “After the Green Bay game, I think our fans are really proud of us,” said
    receiver Victor Cruz. “They’re going to be behind us 100 percent. It’s going to
    be loud and a great environment.”




    That would be ideal. This year’s elite teams have all been dominant at home
    this year. The Ravens are 7-0, while the Packers and Saints are 6-0. The Jets,
    Steelers and 49ers are 6-1, while the Texans and Patriots are 5-1. The Jets’
    success at MetLife should be especially embarrassing to the Giants, especially
    with all the preseason talk about taking over the town.





    Giants safety Deon Grant admitted
    playing at home doesn’t mean much.




    “We don’t look at it as an edge,” he said. “We’ve lost games in our building.
    We just need to focus on the game and take care of business.”




    It also doesn’t help the Giants that the three teams they’ll face to finish
    the regular season are all familiar with MetLife. The Redskins are division
    rivals who played here last January, losing to the Giants 17-14. The Cowboys
    have played twice at MetLife, beating the Giants 33-20 in November 2010, and
    losing to the Jets, 27-24, in the opening week of this season.




    Maybe playing at home simply boils down to this:




    “It’s just nice that we don’t have to get on the plane,” said defensive end
    Dave Tollefson. “It doesn’t affect how you play. If we don’t play at a high
    level, we’re going to get beat.”

    I'll be there screaming in Section 123
    "Team sports are a different animal. They tap into deep seeded tribal instincts. Our team vs your team used to be our tribe vs your tribe. Winner takes all – land, plunder, women. You inherently care when you are aligned with a tribe/team. The players are interchangeable but team always stays the same." - JOESONDO from UG forum

        the structure of new stadiums with all the club seats and the prices that only 45+ year olds can afford has eliminated home field advantage in a lot of new stadiums. it sucks for football fans but the franchises make a lot of money...

          its funny how every year Cough has to beg the fans to make noise.

          Our ticket holders are garbage.
          My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of the Super Bowl 46: Dad, are the Giants gonna win?

          Burier: Yes.

          My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of Super Bowl 46: Do you promise?

          Burier: Yes. I promise.

              I agree. I wasn't at the game but I definitely noticed the rev'd up crowd noise against GB from my couch at home. There was a lot of energy.

                      I was at the last E'gals game.

                      The crowd was not the problem. The offense and defensive play was.

                      I know the crowd can influence the game, especially on defense, bigtime. But THAT game was not the crowd's fault....

                      I dont blame Coughlin for askin, but the Gints need to show some b&%$s.

                      We will cheer when we see effort to cheer for.

If Coughlin wants the fans to be loud, he needs to do something about that embarrassment of defense his DC puts on the field. Fans will be loud until Grossman starts looking like Montana and then it will be quiet.
