There really is no logical way to explain how a team can show up and play stellar one week and in the cellar the next. The players , vets and rooks are ( or should be/ could be) some the most talented on the field today, and the coaching staff has managed to squander it away on terrible preparations, horrific plays calling on both sides of the ball, and absolutley no adjustment made to correct from week to week the inconsistent performances of players, by either instruction or disciplinary actions like benching, with the exception of David Wilson, who ironically has been one of the few brightest spots we have seen all year from these guys.
From TC to KG & PF, they have not righted the listing ship and are responsible for the demise of the season. I say this because according to each of them, in interviews they all admit what is / was needed to win week after week, and claimed that "practice was good" most of the time. This IMO was either a mask of the truth, or they were blind to it. Practice is NOT a real game, and running your team to only have a good practice, but not have it carry over to a game a few days later, implies that they ( coaches ) failed, and failed miserably.
Gilbride's years of incredibly, unimaginative play book cost us many games, and Fewells overstated " complicated " defense schemes proved competley useless all year, as the Giants defense dropped to one of the leagues lowest ranked. And despite a few games of incredible dominations of teams like GB, SF, Saints and Panthers...this team came out flat and physically unprepared to match up against teams thay should have beaten.
Again, this falls onto coaching, and the coaches here must be held accountable, starting right at the top with the HC. I don't care what we do next week with the Eagles, because even if we win, it will just be rolled into the "inconsistency" that has become the accepted "NORM" for this team this year.
And that should be unacceptable for the FO, and Owners. No coach this year should be let back in to risk a repeat next season. A SB ring saved Coughlin's job twice! In between those two his teams were disappointing and many view the two rings as just being HOT & LUCKY at the right time.
It is truly hard to argue this anymore. The Giants under Coughlin and his staff have had more UP & DOWN seasons then UP seaons. His record aside, TC has lost his ability to reach the players, and his coaches have all but been exposed as mediocre hacks.
Time to tear down this 'bridge" as its structure and foundation are unstable and will not support the weight of another miserable season.
