Upset Osi lashes out

You had to know this would happen sooner or later. Osi Umenyiora, ineffective much of the season and largely scapegoated for the team's defensive struggles, finally reached the breaking point after Sunday afternoon's defeat.

"I couldn’t really explain what I’m feeling right now, disappointment is an understatement, in everything, the way everything has played out this year has been absolute nonsense, very disappointed, disheartened, discouraged, whatever you want to call it,' Umenyiora said. "What did I play, five snaps today? I don’t know, I don’t know what happened. I thought I was the problem. It’s an unbelievable situation, man. Last game at Giants Stadium, probably as a Giant, just the way everything has unfolded has been unbelievable. I never would have dreamt this in a million years."

It is pretty obvious there have to be changes on the porous Giants defense for 2010. And Osi might just be right, one of those could well be sending him packing. I know many Giants fans still love him, but he's not what he used to be. Or, what he thinks he is.

Tom Coughlin called the defeat "Very disappointing, obviously. Very, very poor performance by our team."

"I wasn’t prepared for it, let’s put it that way. I had thought we had a good week of practice for it being Christmas week. I thought we had an outstanding Friday practice on Christmas day. I thought that we had talked all week about consistency and about playing at a high level, one game carrying you into the next game and continuing to play well. I’m at a loss for words."

Eli Manning called the loss "shocking and disappointing." Several other players called it "embarrassing."
