The Eagles brought their weekly horror show to New York, but for one of the few times this season they turned the tables and left the GIants left angry and lacking for answers. Head coach Tom Coughlin was as pointed in his criticism of the team as SBNation New York has ever heard.â†µ
"We have no first downs to show, we have no yardage to show, we have no rushing yardage with 29 yards, which is about as pathetic as it can get."â†µ
Coughlin also seemed upset that his team didn't take the Eagles seriously enough.â†µ
"As I just said to each one of the players, first start off with yourself and look at yourself in the mirror. Ask yourself. Because my question for them was ‘why?' What does it take to understand what the Eagles were going to be like coming here? You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that the team is 3-6 with their backs to the wall, they are going to play their butts off. To get to where we wanted to go, we had to play better and harder and we didn't."â†µ
Some people referred to this as a "trap" game for the Giants, which I thought was just crazy. A prime time game against your biggest rival a trap game? If the Giants can't get up for this game, what can they get up for?
