Is a disgrace. He does not deserve to wear New York giant blue. Will take a long time for me to have any positive thoughts about him as a member of this team. He’s a punk crybaby and a quitter

It's not clear to me how you truly feel about him. ;)

Yeah, I need to work on communicating my feelings. I used to coach high School football and if I had a player with that effort he'd be on the bench
if this coaching staff has any backbone left

they bench him. personally, I'd call him out in meetings and to the press.
The play and behavior of the secondary

and the defense in general begs the question: WTF happened since last season?

The guys who are stabbing McAdoo in the back are worse. The guys who are defending McAdoo are worse. The guys who are quiet are worse.

The D started the year ok but over the course of the season they have fallen off a cliff. Spags clearly isn't reaching them. McAdoo isn't. The players who are trying to rally the team aren't.

So: What the fuck is going on? Something has gone wayyyy wrong in that locker room. I suspect that the real story is much worse than anything that we fans have heard about.
Your angst for yesterday's game

Should be directed primarily at Jenkins with a secondary contempt for Collins. Thompson is a bum. You can't expect a man to give you what he doesn't have . So go ahead and blast Apple.
This week's non event: the Beathard roll right pass-run option. There is a receiver in the back of the end zone . Apple plays the receiver there. If he rolls up early, the ball is lobbed over his head. JPP fucked up the play. So, of course, blame Eli.

I see Carl Banks is training Giant fandom in the art of the piñata .

Not sure it was JPP either. They both were in coverage. So someone is supposed to be in contain but it isn't clear from the play who it was. Seemed like a good call against a bad defensive play design. Not sure why you want a defensive end in coverage along the goalline?

So Apple standing in the Endzone not moving while a QB is running from the 7 yard line is on Jenkins/Collins? I have plenty of gripes with Jenkins and COllins but Apple is a damn quitter and has done so more then once this year. Twice in 7 days.
