The New York Giants are 3-6. Again. Despite an overhaul of the offensive coaching staff and philosophy and a massive overhaul of the personnel, the Giants appear to be running on the NFL version of a hamster wheel. They keep going and going (I didn't say running and running for a reason), yet they are stuck in the same place.
The question that has been hovering around the Giants this week is whether or not this 3-6 version of the Giants is better than last year's 3-6 version of the Giants.
Tom Coughlin believes it is:
This is our football team; we can play better than we played. It is frustrating because words don't always cover everything, and I do want our players to understand that I think they are very close. I think that in order to accomplish what we say, now we are talking about four quarters. That was never an issue. We put together some wins at the end of last year, which gave a little respectability to where we were and we've got to do the same thing here.
Eli Manning believes it is:
"I feel like we are a better team. I feel like we are doing some good things. We are just not, for whatever reason, we are not able to put four quarters together," Manning said. "We are close. We are a few plays away. We still hurt ourselves sometimes. We can be dynamic. We can make some big plays and can take short passes and run our offense efficiently. We just have to do it for four quarters. We can't let one bad series or one bad play dictate the rest of the game."
I said enough today about what I think. What do you think. Vote in the poll and let us know if this team is better than last year's team.
