......COUGHLIN EMBARRASSED BY GIANTS PERFORMANCE
Is it just me, or did we have a similar headline on this very Web site Friday morning?
Except instead of Coughlin and Giants, it said Reid and Eagles. The G-Men AKA PETUNIAS lost to the Bears, 17-3, last night and Tom Coughlin wasn't pleased with the way his team performed. "Quite frankly, we got embarrassed," he said, per Mike Garafolo of The Newark Star-Ledger. "I don't like that word: 'flat,'" he added. "(The players are) professional athletes. I question their focus. ... There isn't one phase that I thought played well. I didn't think we were very physical at all. We came in with some solid physical objectives and things we didn't do from the first week we had to improve upon. We really didn't accomplish any of those."
The Giants had several players sidelined also, plus they just played Monday night and had only two practices in between games. The one newsworthy item from the game is that defensive tackle Jay Alford, a Penn State product, suffered what is initially being termed an MCL sprain. Per Garafolo, Alford will undergo an MRI and other tests today.
