The Bad Home Loses in the Coughlin Era

SoZKillA : 12/19/2011 6:47 pm
-Bears(Craig Krenzel at QB)

-Vikings (Lost on Punt,Kick and INT returns)

-Saints(Didn't even show up)

-Vikings (Torched)
-Redskins(throwing 50+ passes in a Nor'easter)

-Eagles x2 (Two stinkers)


-Titans(450+ yards and 10 fucking points)
-Eagles(Choke job)

-Seahwaks(Tag Team Champs Tavaris Jackson and Whitehurst)

Why are we such a bad home team under Coughlin ?

Feel free to add any other games you want.

Well put i am tired of these bad home losses
notice the years  
mattnyg05 : 12/19/2011 6:54 pm : link
with the least amount...
Those two in 07  
SoZKillA : 12/19/2011 7:00 pm : link
we're horrible was at them both, we weren't prepared at all.

In 08, we had a chance to bury Philly and didn't show up on offense.

Playoffs was another disaster as the offense didn't show up.
Looking at that list

there is no way he survives this season if the Giants don't make the playoffs.
the sad part  
MattHofstra : 12/19/2011 7:14 pm : link
is that I was at every single one of those games...I'm so sick and tired of being dejected leaving these home games..I always threaten to get rid of my seats, but I'll never do it
Let's see a list for all teams  
Big Blue '56 : 12/19/2011 7:17 pm : link
specifically our division and conference
Redskins in 2007

Was mind boggling
Pretty inexcusable.  
Dave in Hoboken : 12/19/2011 7:22 pm : link
The Giants have almost the same exact season every year.
Phil in Joisey : 12/19/2011 7:23 pm : link
Why? Will that make any of us feel better? (grin)
The misery loves company theory at work?
Can you

Also find out how many teams put up 40 on the Giants when Sheridan was the DC ? Maybe 6 or 7 ? Coughlin should have been fired that year.
Here it is

in very simple terms

Since 2007 we lead the NFL in road wins including playoffs, tied with New England

Since 2007 we are in the bottom half in the league in home wins, with one more than the Jaguars and two more than the Bengals and Bucs

The last 3 years have definitely had similarities...  
arcarsenal : 12/19/2011 7:26 pm : link
But 2004-2008 were all pretty different in their own regard.

6-10, 11-5, 8-8, 10-6, 12-4.
And 2 fewer than SF  
MarshallOnMontana : 12/19/2011 7:26 pm : link
who until this year has pretty much sucked
Jamesnygiants55 : 12/19/2011 7:51 pm : link
I agree
Never been worse than 5-3 at the mid way point  
NYG in NC : 12/19/2011 7:58 pm : link
since TC has been here with 2004 and 2009 being the only years we weren't 6-2 or better.
There's just

a lot of randomness in the Giants performances. More than most teams. In past years it was easy to figure out the reason - it was the QB. Eli was capable of all-world performance and absolutely dreadful games. He had more variance than most QBs and the play of the QB drives team success.

That's not the case this year, as Eli has been consistently good for the entire year. Even in his worst games, he's actually played fairly decently. Like yesterday, his worst statistical day of the year, I thought he still threw the ball fine.

This year is systemic team inconsistency. Whatever you want to call it - focus, intensity - it varies from game to game. If we played against Washington and Seattle like we played against New England and Green Bay, then we'd be going to the playoffs. We just didn't. How do you explain massive swings in team-wide performance? I don't know.
Why does this keep happening?

An injury to the starting QB, or a rash of season-ending injuries to starters at one position (Like 2 of 3 LBs or 3 of 5 offensive linemen) may be good reasons for a late season collapse. BUT What's the Giants excuse?

The Giants have lost some important players since the start of each of the past 4 seasons, but injuries are expected and all teams have to deal with their share. Like everyone else, the Giants need to make adjustments throughout the season. So other than those injuries, the only obvious reason for the late season collapse is the coaching staff's inability to get the players to play hard and stay focused. With 4 games to go, it should have been easy to get the players to focus on the task at hand - win 3 of the last 4 and get to the playoffs. If they can't still do that, the coaching staff needs to go.

but why in the world is the Atlanta 2004 game on that list? It was Manning's first (or second?) ever start and we were playing the 2nd best team in the conference. We actually almost beat them.
that is one atrocious resume  
Eggs55 : 12/19/2011 10:40 pm : link
good enough for HomerJones though
Even harder to measure...  
tyleraimee : 12/19/2011 10:50 pm : link
are all of the games we should have won easily against much weaker opponents. Meanwhile, we generally lay an egg in the game and barely win in the end. Chalk it up to not playing a full 60 minutes, not taking teams seriously, etc Whatever the reason, I am sick of it.
Was it 2005 or '06  
bsh2z : 12/20/2011 7:24 am : link
when we blew the Titans game? When Kiwi let Young go. That was at home too. Wasn't it?
BIG FRED : 12/20/2011 8:54 am : link
No that was on the road .The next week we lost a heartbreaker to dallas and then 2 weeks later followed that up with a bad loss to philly ,followed by a no show vs the Saints all at home ..2006 was just as frustrating as this season and has been and very similer
Team has shown it can win.  
oldog : 12/20/2011 9:31 am : link
That is beyond dispute, yet we produce stinker after stinker. So conclusion, talent to win is there, but it isn't producing. Solution, management change to make productive. Please, goodbye all field coaches, TC on down. And new management should relieve us of naysayers and malingerers, even just suspected ones.
bad home losses

While I do agree we've had way, way too many abysmal losses at home over the last 7 years; I think just to be fair, I think you do have to compare somewhat the quality wins we've had at home in Coughlin's tenure. e.g., wins vs. Denver (great comeback win), Redskins, Cowboys, and KC in '05, the win vs. Carolina on sunday night in OT in '08 near the end of the season, as well as the cowboys and ravens (30-10) in '08, Eagles in '07, cowboys in '09, and Chi last year
