Panthers send Giants to 0-3 start with a trouncing


The Giants were the team calling it a must-win earlier in the week.

But the Panthers were the team that played that way.

Carolina destroyed the Giants 38-0, sending Tom Coughlin’s team to its worst loss since he’s been coaching, and buying Panthers coach Ron Rivera a moment’s peace.

This one eclipsed the 44-7 loss to Minnesota to close the 2009 season, and drops the Giants to 0-3 with obvious issues on both sides of the ball. They had started at least 5-2 in each of Coughlin’s seasons (he took over in 2004).

The Panthers did it with ease, keeping them from ever attacking an inexperienced secondary. The Panthers tied a franchise record with seven sacks, and held the Giants to 150 yards.

They also played the kind of offense they needed to. They allowed Cam Newton to throw deep, and create his own space with his legs. It resulted in a balanced attack, with DeAngelo Williams rushing for 120 yards and Newton throwing for 223 yards and three touchdowns.

  1. There is so much more to say: The Giants looked like an 80 year old john with placebo viagara twerking with Miley Cyrus. Not that real viagara would help that chick is gross.

  2. Being so consumed by the Steelers’ total meltdown, I’ve been a little slow to realize the same thing is happening to the Giants. We know what’s come undone in Pittsburgh. What’s happened in New York?

  3. The Bills and the Yets have each won a game so this makes the Jints the worst team in or around New York.

    Behind the Yets must be embarrassing, esp after a shutout with six sacks.

  4. Absolutely disgusting performance by the Giants. Great way to make Coughlin feel better about his brother

  5. The O-Line and D-Line are both atrocious….You are not going to win crap when you are pathetic in the trenches. Eli doesn’t even have time to get a step forward!

    I guess I can be happy that Logicalvoicesays is probably crying in his parents basement also??

  6. it don’t get any easier for the cheating giants. Eli you are next. sincerely, chiefs kingdom courtesy of hali and Houston

  7. Coughlin should retire, Gilbride should have been fired 3 years ago, and I don’t know how they let the O-line and LBs get that bad without doing much of anything to improve. Yeah, they’ve drafted some nice talent, but completely ignored need in a lot of areas, couple that with bad play calling and questionable coaching at best, it just got way out of hand. Today showed that.

  8. Embarrassing for Giants fans. Losing is one thing, not showing up is unacceptable. Hope Coughlin went into the locker room and didn’t say a word after that sham. Let the players know how much they embarrassed themselves, the organization, the fans, etc…

    Time to overhaul those coordinators too. Fewell = gone, Gilbride = gone.

  9. Now Romo and Vick get killed by national media for picks and bad games, but Eli continues to get a pass. Even the commentators were making excuses for Eli. C’mon PFt, get on Eli,,,

  10. The Giants issues start and end with the offensive line. Jerry Reese has messed this up big time with his approach to the line (low draft picks and vets) and all our issues emanate from there. Will Beatty stinks (Deihl replaced him in ’11 when we went on to win it all) – a 3rd round pick from Connecticut with injury issues and zero toughness should not be protecting the franchise. Booth is a quality backup, but not a starter. Baas is damaged goods. Snee is on the downside – a great player but getting old. Pugh is not ready for prime time. Deihl is out. Cordle is a paperweight. The results speak for themselves — multitudes of sacks and penalties, no room to run, no time to pass, holdings to negate TDs, it’s pathetic. One or more linemen are screwing up on EVERY play. So Eli can’t run the offense, the runners can’t gain yards, every drive becomes 3rd and a mile. And over time, the defense – which has actually played pretty well – finds itself back on its heels, defending crappy field position, losing energy and then looking terrible. Might be the worst OLine performance of all time today. That’s our problem and it may take years to fix. You can’t ignore the OLine and expect to be competitive – doesn’t matter what bright, shiny objects you put at the skill positions. At least we have 2 rings and a lot of recent joy and I still love this team and appreciate all of that… At least the division is weak overall and the Skins are 0-3, too, and those morons who talk so much junk on this site can’t do anything but shut the hell up. 0-3 stinks any way you slice it.

  11. Giant fan since the days of Homer Jones. Thank you for your exemplary service Coughlin…now f’in retire. I am beyond embarrassed about this joke that Reese and red face trot out. The game has passed by this team and the sad sack management/coaching staff. Christ, they suck…I want Coughlin gone…now.

  12. Giants are a joke across the board, hahaha, disgrace to the city, lamenting the importance of good LB corps. Perry should be signing up for food stamps anytime now. I love the Giants but you look soft, like Bounty soft.

  13. As a Giants fan you had to see this coming. The last two seasons we have declined. Even the super bowl win year was pulled out of our ass but I will take it.

    No cap room and vets aging and not getting it done along with some bad draft picks not performing. Everyone gives Reese a pass but seriously besides JPP (which was forced because we would have gone for Mcclain if the raiders didnt take him) who has panned out?

    You cant win every year but we should be able to compete and it seems to be we suck or we are all in.

    A bit different circumstances Deb.

    Giants just got old.

    Steelers just got clean.

  15. I said it after I saw the Panthers in week one..Their front 7 is as tough as any in the NFL and probably even better than the 49ers which gets so much praise. If Cam Newton gets hot, watch out.

  16. The stink from Metlife stadium is NOT the NY Jets, who are now 2-1 of all things…its from the awful NY Giants who rolled over and played dead in the SECOND QUARTER today against a dreadful team.

    No heart, no guts, and Eli is no leader. He is NOT an elite QB that all NY Giant fans want you to think. With those receivers my God he should have sick numbers, instead you can all get sick over 0-3, then if you want to get more sick look at the schedule, week 4 at KC.

    Funniest part is that fatty Mike Francessa and coach were doing tv spot on super bowl saying oh how wonderful it would be if NYG make super bowl to be played in NJ this year BWWAHAHA!

  17. @realitycheckbaby …

    For future reference, when I ask a question … I’m asking actual football fans. Trolls need not reply.

  18. Whoever is buying the groceries should probly get fired– whether it’s Coughlin or the GM. Coughlin an only coach the team he has!

  19. Now maybe everyone else will open their eyes. Eli Manning isn’t (nor has he ever been) capable of carrying a football team. He won super bowls by scoring 17 points on bad defenses (mostly by throwing jump balls). Can everyone now stop pretending like he is anything but average?

  20. There’s no pretending two Lombardi’s and two Super Bowl mvp’s for Eli, and the teams they beat to get there. Anyone who thinks otherwise are idiots. What we’re seeing now (unfortunately) is an organization that’s getting stale and needs a shake-up. Age and inexperience is a factor and some coaches that are set in their ways. Coughlin needs to retire, not get fired. The rest of the coaches need the walking papers. No guarantees, but the current regime is putting this great franchise in a hole that it can’t dig out of.

    No, we are NOT dreadful. We just haven’t been able to close out close games when we hold a late lead. You want dreadful? Look in Jacksonvlle, Tampa, and Pittsburgh, as well as in the mirror. Don’t look in Carolina.
