Have we seen the last of Chris Snee with the New York Giants? A second torn labrum in his hip in two years (this one to the opposite hip he had surgery on in the offseason) could well end his season, and might end his Giants career. Reports indicate Snee could face another hip surgery.

Snee is a four-time Pro Bowler who was drafted in the second round by the Giants in 2004.

Giants.com sat down with coach Tom Coughlin to look over three plays from Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Former Giants Shaun O'Hara offered his take on game-changing plays. Since it seems like everybody is getting into the act, Conor Orr of the Star-Ledger also looked over the tape and offered his thoughts.

The Cincinnati Bengals signed former Giants linebacker Michael Boley on Tuesday. The Tennessee Titans worked out former Giants backup quarterback David Carr, but did not sign him.

The Philadelphia Eagles defense is allowing a league-worst 446.8 yards per game. The Eagles won't change course, however.

''The results did not show in that game obviously, so I'm asking to you trust me even though there are not the results. But the guys know through the daily work that the techniques, it will turn. It will turn. It hasn't turned yet,'' he said. ''It's not where we want it to be, but we'll continue to put our heads down and work, and I really believe it will turn.''

While most teams take Tuesdays off, the Eagles were back on the practice field preparing for a rival. Eli Manning and Co. will be desperate to snap their losing streak. So, it'll be another difficult matchup for Philadelphia's defense.

Despite the struggles, Davis insists the team has the personnel to run a 3-4 defense. The Eagles used a 4-3 front for 14 years under Andy Reid and had success until the past couple seasons.

''We've got the talent,'' Davis said. ''We just have to get them playing together within the scheme. I don't care what you run. A wide nine or a 3-4 two gap. Every player playing his technique, they're all attached to each other. The defensive linemen's technique are attached to the linebacker's technique or attached to the safeties. When you have inconsistency in any one spot, the defense breaks down."

Newsday's Bob Glauber strongly disagrees with anyone who wants Coughlin gone as Giants' coach, even if he can't fix the mess the Giants are in this season.

Eli Manning isn't going anywhere, either. The Giants' quarterback isn't blameless for the team's current plight.
