    Fans Can't Save Giants' Floundering Season

    http://nypost.com/2013/10/02/coughli...around-giants/

    Excerpt: "It gets deafening inside CenturyLinc Field when the Seahawks play, and it was loud Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium when the Chiefs silenced the Giants. And now, with his team Giants on death row, Tom Coughlin is making a plea for help.

    “I’m hoping that our fans are as boisterous and supportive as they’ve ever been — maybe even more,” Coughlin said Wednesday. “I just hope everyone rallies around our team right now. The players need it, we all need it. We all need to feel that great support and the 12th man. Playing at home in your division there’s certainly every reason in the world to be excited about that. …

    “I’m hoping that they help us, the fans help us win.”

    Here’s the problem, and it goes beyond the chicken-or-the-egg obvious that it is on the Giants to give their fans something to cheer about Sunday against the hated Eagles:

    Giants fans did not expect their team to come home 0-4.

    Giants fans, like ownership, hold this team to a higher standard.

    Giants fans dreamed of their team making history by becoming the first team to play in a Super Bowl in its home stadium, just as the players did.

    Giants fans weren’t expecting an overmatched, injury-ravaged offensive line that can’t keep Eli Manning upright or clear the path for a running game.

    Giants fans weren’t expecting Manning to throw 11 interceptions.

    Giants fans weren’t expecting Jason Pierre-Paul to have only one more sack than Michael Strahan or Kelly Ripa.

    Giants fans weren’t expecting David Wilson to fumble his golden opportunity.

    Giants fans weren’t expecting Hakeem Nicks to virtually disappear.

    In other words, Coughlin can expect Giants fans to be “All in.”

    But guess what: It’s up to his Giants to keep them “All in.”

    It’s up to the Giants to help the Giants win, no matter where the game is played." Read more...

    Nah, no one really starts by complaining about their wallet really.......mostly fans complain about lack of production on the field. It is that simple and we don't owe the team anything. They owe us production on the field. They produce, we make noise, easy.

    My allowance comes from my savings account, which pays for my life of leisure working out and sitting at the pool all day. Now get back to your job taking orders from the man.

    The team needs to start this thing off. This is not on the fans who have already paid too much money to sit in those seats. The players have taken money from those fans and have done.........shall I say............ABSOLUTELY nothing thus far this season. It is all on the team to do something that is worthy of cheers and noise. Stop this nonsense that any of this is on the fans!

    Not that I believe that you have the lifestyle you claim to live, but your life is obviously very fulfilling either way. Must be nice to spend hours a day on a message board telling people how much better you are than them because you "sit by the pool all day" and drink ****tails with the little umbrella in them while your butler, Jeeves, gives you foot massages.

    You're so cool dude. Seriously. Stay golden, Ponyboy.

    This guy is funny, I wonder if he is still at the age where his mom gives him allowance money.

    You're a genius in your own mind, and like 99 % of the posters on this board were before the season started, dead wrong.

    Dude, I wouldn't go around bashing Giants fans.

    I'll never forget your post back in 2007, when you opined that you wanted us to lose in the NFC Championship game so we didn't go down being remembered as the loser in the Super Bowl to the Patriots.
    The truth is bashing? Our fans have a tendency to get very quiet at times! We are in no way a factor as the fans in places like KC and Seattle. The product on the field shouldn't have anything to do with it. KC fans are loud all the time...even when they were garbage!! IMO If you want to watch the game you can stay home but if you go you should participate!
