Giants coach Tom Coughlin knows his players are failing, but he says it’s not because they aren’t trying.
The 0-3 Giants got dominated by the Panthers on Sunday, raising questions about whether they quit on the field. But Coughlin said the Giants are still working hard.
“It’s a different story when you’re getting your butt kicked. I think the effort was there. Of course, there’s no result to show for it,” Coughlin said. “The defense gave good effort, special teams gave good effort. The offense was giving the effort. We’re just getting manhandled.”
It’s a good thing that the Giants are still trying. If they had already quit on the season in September, that would be a serious problem. Still, if Sunday’s game is what the Giants look like when they’re trying hard, I shudder to think how bad they might look if they start to pack it in.
