What in the world just happened? Giants fans and spectators everywhere are still in shock and awe over the 63-yard field goal that stripped the Giants of their second win. People from all over took to Twitter to express their grievances about a number of things, particularly officiating.
The Panthers Twitter account was quick to troll the Giants
A lot of people still can’t wrap their heads around the loss
I still can't grasp this Giants loss— Shaun Morash (@MrazCBS) October 7, 2018
Being a Giants fan can really suck— Johnny Pinstripes (@JohnFerraro_) October 7, 2018
Blaming the officiating
Many people were quick to blame officiating for the loss, including Landon Collins and Janoris Jenkins, and Snacks Harrison.
Asked Landon Collins what the mood is in the locker room: “The mood is we need better refs. That’s the mood. Point-blank, simple. It’s bogus calls being called out there.”— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 7, 2018
Giants defensive players livid about the officiating.— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) October 7, 2018
“We need better refs,” Janoris Jenkins said over and over.
I can take a loss...to have a win stolen is a different type of feeling. The NFL has some explaining to do...— Damon Harrison Sr. (@snacks) October 7, 2018
Can’t believe they didn’t measure for a 1st down in #Giants game.— Ryan Field (@RyanFieldABC) October 7, 2018
Looked like he came up short and then Cam spiked the ball on 4th and 1. Terrible sequence. Should’ve stopped the clock for measurement.
How is this a First Down?? HOW IS THIS A FREAKING FIRST DOWN. GIANTS NATION. WE HAVE BEEN ROBBED BY THE HORRENDOUS @NFL REFS OF OUR 2ND RIGHTFUL WIN OF THE SEASON.— Pissed MARA (@EmperorMara) October 7, 2018
This makes me sick to my stomach how could the NFL allow something like this? HOW ON THIS EARTH????????? pic.twitter.com/qGJxUQME3G
Others, not so much
Whine about the refs all you want. Good teams win close games. Have the #NYG been hosed by the NFL the last two weeks? Yes. BUT they're a genuinely bad team.— RegularSZN Ethan (@EthanGSN) October 7, 2018
Poor officiating isn't an excuse for losing, but the Giants and Pat Shurmur now have a legitimate beef with the league.— TheGiantsWire (@TheGiantsWire) October 7, 2018
It’s probably best to just move on to next week
Brutal Loss For @giants Need to play SMARTER & BETTER for ALL 4 Quarters to EARN a WIN! Can’t feel sorry for themselves they have the Defending World Champs in 4 days #BuryTheDead #CleanUrRifle #PHIvsNYG #TNF— Shaun O'Hara (@ShaunOHara60) October 7, 2018
Time will tell of course, but if I'm the Giants, I somehow find a way to bottle this anger that they seem to be feeling and I take it out on the Eagles Thursday.— Patricia Traina (@Patricia_Traina) October 7, 2018
Proud to be a Giant. Them boys played hard.— Brandon Jacobs (@gatorboyrb) October 7, 2018
