It was an unusual morning in New York this morning, as the Giants are just hours removed from the most lopsided loss in the Tom Coughlin era and now sit at 0-3 on the season.
In regards to the 38-0 loss at the hands of the Carolina Panthers, who were 0-2 entering Sunday's contest, Banks called it "the most disturbing thing" he has ever experienced, adding the Giants went down "without a fight."

Banks says he's seen bad giants teams, but never one that took "punches in the face" over and over like they did yesterday.— Conor Orr (@ConorTOrr) September 23, 2013
The Giants' offensive line allowed seven sacks and let Eli Manning get hit 10 times. In contrast, the Giants defense sacked Panthers quarterback Cam Newton just once.
The schedule doesn't get any easier for New York, as they'll travel to Arrowhead to face the NFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs, unbeaten Chicago Bears in Soldier Field, as well as the Minnesota Vikings and and two bouts with the Eagles.
And Banks isn't confident the Giants have the mental toughness to straighten out their season against these teams.
