I know these giants all too well. Until we are elimated from playoff contention, I will be on board. This team plays their best football with their back against the wall, unfortunately.
I think the majority are just venting because we lost to 2 inferior teams. We were 9-7 going into the playoffs last year and had some head scratching losses....if you're jumping ship now, you were never really on board.
The only thing I expect out of this group of Giants is a playoff appearance. This group is talented enough where I don't think that that is an unreasonable expectation.

I have learned from him what being a Giants fan was like pre-1985. He and my grandmother taught me what being a Red Sox fan was like pre-2003. I understand the history and I respect it. I realize I am lucky to see my teams win.
I think what should be noted is the dbag 'bandwagon' fans. Regardless of age, these are the worst sports fans off all. Worse than a loyal Eagles fan. Worse (for me) than a loyal Yankees fan. Bandwagon fans are a disgrace to fandom. But such is life...
By the way I am a Giants/Red Sox fan because my father grew up in Manchester, NH in the 50's. There were no Patriots, it was Giants and Red Sox territory. Another ****ty fact: my grandmother was a life long die-hard sox fan and passed away in the middle of the 2004 ALCS between the Sox and Yanks. I gotta pay homage and be a sox fan
Conclusion: Its not the young fans, its the Bandwagon, I mean ***wagon Fans.... and they can eat ****

Starting tommorrow, I know the next time we meet the Cowgirls and Eagles, they know that we will be out to get them,AND WE WILL.
GO GIANTS !
Yeah I've just come to accept it. They are what they are. Nothing they do is surprising because they've done it all before.

Our HC choices other than Bill and Tom have been abysmal, and Parcells only became innovative when he gained some measure of success
Its kind of amazing we have had all the success we have had playing everything so close to the vest
If Eli had not blossomed when he did we might still be looking for Lombardi #3
I have been a die-hard fan since the early 80's, I have seen some pretty bad years, but I have also been fortunate to see 5 Super Bowls, 4 of those wins. This team, when healthy, is still as good as any of those SB teams, if not better. The injury bug seems to hit the Giants hard every year, but... if they can win the games they should win until they start getting healthy, there is no team in the league they don't have the ability to beat later in the season.
I am not a "rah rah" type of fan, I have no problem criticizing when I am unhappy with their play, but jumping off the bandwagon is never an option.
I do not think Giants fans have been that bad at all. There are some people who are being absurd for sure, but you cannot mistake the people who want and know we can do better with the people who whine about every little thing.
What is so frustrating about this team is you just have no idea which version is going to show up. Will it be the superbowl champs that went through 1 of the toughest playoffs runs in SB history? Or, will it be the team the Eagles got the edge on despite committing no blockers to the defensive end?
In truth, the only thing we can usually expect from this team is that we will play to the level of our competition. That can be very frustrating to watch.
