It’s hard to believe that the Giants are still alive for a playoff berth at 3-6. Seven games remain. Does anyone really believe that they can run the table?
Not if they continue to “play defense” like they did last week in Seattle.
The 49ers saved their season with their desperation OT win last week in New Orleans. Playing well coming off such an emotional win will not be easy.
The quote from defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul pretty much sums up the New York Giants’ 2014 season.
Let us set the stage for you. It is the postgame locker room where the Giants, now 3-6 following their fourth consecutive loss, this one a 38-17 affair to the Seattle Seahawks that the Giants actually led 17-14 at the half.
Pierre-Paul, who earlier in the week had questioned whether his teammates had the heart to be successful in this game, was asked if defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, whose run defense had been gashed for 149 rushing yards in the game’s first 30 minutes, made any adjustments.
“I don’t know. I was in the bathroom.”
Just like the Giants’ 2014 season.
