Giants coach Tom Coughlin was upset with his running game and offensive line play according to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. After the game he ripped into the team’s rushing attack.
“We had 29 yards rushing, which is about as pathetic as you can get,” the frustrated coach said. “Our offensive line was completely outplayed by the front eight of Philadelphia.”
The Giants’ longest gain of the evening was a nine-yard run by Jacobs early in the game. In contrast, LeSean McCoy’s final carry of the day was a 60-yard gallop in the game’s final minute.
Coughlin said his line had been “physically manhandled.” That made it easy for the Eagles to key on Eli Manning, knowing the Giants were going to pass on nearly every play.
