Carl Banks on New York Giants: They 'took 'punches in the face'

Former Giants linebacker criticizes the winless Giants in a radio rant Monday morning

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

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.

The players and coaches are obviously not happy with how 2013 has kicked off, and neither is former New York Giants great Carl Banks, who went off on a rant Monday morning on WFAN.

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."

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.

At 0-3, the Giants stand side by side with the winless Washington Redskins in the basement of the NFC East, looking up at the Philadelphia Eagles and the first-place Dallas Cowboys.

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.
