Giants Left Speechless After Epic Collapse To Eagles

For an Eagles fan, reading the comments of Giants players and coaches was a mix of sad and funny. On one hand, these are our rivals, they talk a lot of trash, and we don’t like them. On the other hand, if you put yourself in their shoes for a second, it’s hard to even fathom how you’d react to being a part of that.

After a game is usually when players start to spout their robotic cliches about “working harder” and having to “put it behind us,” but the Giants really couldn’t even do that today. In fact, Osi Umenyiora wasn’t even sure the team could get over it.

“We’ll find out if we can recover. It’s hard to envision the way to recover from this,” defensive end Osi Umenyiora said. “There’s no blueprint for what we do to get over this.”

“I’ve never been around anything like this in my life,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “It’s about as empty as you get to feel in this business.”

“I’m in disbelief right now; I’m in shock,” said TE Kevin Boss. “The mistakes that we made were costly and I’m in disbelief right now.”

“No words, no explanation,” said DT Barry Cofield. “This is about as bad a loss as you can suffer.”

“The locker room is devastated and it should be,” said DE Justin Tuck. “We let one slip out of our hands. We had an opportunity to basically seal up the NFC East today, had it and lost it.”

I imagine Giants fans are feeling the same way right now, except they probably add “anger” to the “shock” and “disbelief.”
