On the talent level:
"There is a chance — and I’m getting around to this line of thinking, particularly defensively — that the Giants just don’t have enough players to play well," Parcells said. "I’m really at the point where, with the guys who have gotten hurt — Prince [Amukamara] got hurt there at the corner I think he was probably their best defensive back — they just look like they don’t have enough players to go around. They don’t get much pressure on the quarterback. They don’t stop the run. I just don’t think they’ve got enough right now to compete at a high level."
On the effort level:
"I saw one guy, I won't say his name, because I don't think I should be doing that, near the end of the game, Marshawn Lynch is going over the goal line and this guy had a chance at him [on Lynch's fourth TD] and this guy doesn't take it," Parcells said. "That would bother me a great deal."
Parcells isn't the first guy to say either of those things. Just look at the podcast list from the Kay Show. ESPN's Dan Graziano and ex-Giant Shaun O'Hara have both said the same thing. Perhaps, though, the opinion carries more weight when it comes froma guy with the credibility of Parcells.
