    GIANTS' MARK HERZLICH: WE'RE STILL BITTER OVER 9 - 7 SEASON

    GIANTS' MARK HERZLICH: WE'RE STILL BITTER OVER 9 - 7 SEASON

    "Once the ticker tape and confetti from the Super
    Bowl XLVI
    parade and following stadium celebration have settled, some
    feelings become real again. This reigns true for New York
    Giants
    linebacker Mark Herzlich.


    Herzlich maintains clarity on what happened to him and the team during the
    2011 regular season, but says the Giants are steadfast in remembering a horrible
    four-game losing streak that preempted most media outlets, other teams and even
    some Giants fans to write epitaphs on Big Blue prematurely.





    “I think that as amazing as last year was there is still a bitter taste in
    our mouth from that four game stretch where we lost. Everyone really remembers
    that feeling all too well and playing just for survival just to get into the
    playoffs and just to do that type of thing, that’s not where we want to be at
    half way through the season. We want to put ourselves in position earlier to get
    that playoff spot and then to repeat what we did last year at the end of the
    season.” Herzlich said in an interview with WEEI in Boston.




    #58 is coming into 2012 training camp with more than determination. Mark
    will travel up to Albany with the mindset that the starting position of Mike
    linebacker is his for the taking.





    “It’s mine for the taking,” Herzlich said in April. “I wish the best for
    everybody else, but it’s still a competition. I want the team to do well, and if
    it’s not the spot that the coaches want me in, then that’s one thing. But the
    way I look at it is, there is a place that I can play and I don’t want anyone to
    take that away from me.”




    From the top—head coach Tom
    Coughlin
    —the feelings trickle down unchanged: The need to improve is always
    there. The Giants finished with a 9-7 record. Mark
    Herzlich
    finished his rookie season with 12 tackles recorded in 11 games
    played. Both statements clearly share similarities and parallels in the fact
    that there’s definite progress to be had according the clipboard agenda for the
    virulent G-Men. They’re a resilient bunch that has used the adversity mantra to
    death. This time, the playbook seems to have a new play call in it that comes
    from unsettled and unresolved feelings about how the players and coaches (as
    well as the front office) look back on how 2011 really went down.




    Don’t be surprised if the World Champions come out with massive chips on
    their shoulders as if they missed the playoffs—and play harder now. They may
    seem as if they’ve something to prove to themselves more than any other along
    the way."

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle

    I love this. With all the talk of how the Giants needed the Eagles and Dallas to underperform, this team underperformed as well. I look for a truly dominant and consistent defense.

    I like how hurtzlick thinks

    The optimist expects it to change;
    The realist adjusts the sails."
