Well that sucked. The Giants outplayed the Titans, except for the fact that all those damn penalties, turnovers and mistakes cost them. It was brutal, and I think it’s the biggest indication yet that Tom Coughlin has lost this team. Let’s delve into Thoughts and Musings
-The hallmark of Tom Coughlin’s teams have been discipline. Arriving on time is arriving late. Not a lot of penalties or turnovers. But this year, this team, there’s a lot of penalties. Lots of turnovers. Lots of stupidity ( see McKenzie, Kareem).
-Coughlin is on the hot seat. But, will he be fired, and if he is going to be fired, when? That all depends on how the next three weeks pan out. If they go 3-0, he keeps his job. 2-1, seat is a little bit cooler, but it’s warm. 1-2, it’s on fire. And 0-3, he’s out.
-Who replaces him? Probably Perry Fewell. But, who knows, maybe they gut the whole staff and bring someone from the outside. I don’t know.
-Speaking of Fewell, the defense did look better. It did. More swarming to the ball, more aggressiveness. Obviously the end result wasn’t good, but they were improved.
-Really, Kareem McKenzie? Really? Are you that stupid? I mean, really?
-The delay of game on the field goal in the 4th quarter said a lot about this team. That should never happen.
-And, on the last play, when they were on the 5 yard line or so, with about 5 seconds to go, couldn’t get a play off. At that point, it’s pride you’re playing for. You want that touchdown. The Giants clearly didn’t.
-I’m not a fan of Darius Reynaud. He just doesn’t do much. He’s too tentative. Doesn’t hit the holes with authority.
