Are you rooting for a win or loss on Sunday?

It's a tough one. Hate seeing the team embarrassed like this. But I'm rooting for a loss.

A loss  
yankees78 : 11/9/2017 7:39 pm : link
Shit needs to change.
A loss to the winless 49ers might just be rock bottom(lol) to make sure things will change with regard to the coaches and GM.
My version of tough love. Sorry.
Looking for a loss  
The_Boss : 11/9/2017 7:39 pm : link
Don’t care how either: blow out, slop fest, FG at the gun..whatever. I want to go 1-15 and see if that nets a top 2 pick. It should.
Route 9 : 11/9/2017 7:52 pm : link
Don't really care and haven't thought about the outcome of this game at all. It doesn't matter either way. Go 1-15 for all I give a hoot.

Kind of forgot there was even a game this week. There is literally nothing to see with this team. The season is over and has been over and the worst thing about it is there are still EIGHT more games of "football" to be played. They seem to not really care the way they're playing, so why should I really?

I hope I remember to watch it.

liteamorn : 11/9/2017 8:03 pm : link
I don't care if a loss means the difference between the 1st pick or the 10th, I root for wins.
While watching I'll want them to win.  
St. Jimmy : 11/9/2017 8:05 pm : link
If they lose I won't be disappointed at the end of the game.
I won't be watching  
ZogZerg : 11/9/2017 8:09 pm : link
I'm rooting for Eli to do well.

If they are going to lose, I want them blown out to see if Slade is right;)

I won't actively root for SF, but I absolutely would prefer that the Giants ultimately lose the game.

I've amended my position  
B in ALB : 11/9/2017 8:44 pm : link
A tie would be excellent.

But win or lose I'm all good.

It's still great entertainment.

Go Giants!
Even though a loss is in the best interest Of the team

I could never root for them to lose.

We have a bunch of assholes, pussies and people in need of a head examination on this thread. Trying to figure out which group I belong to. I want in on all three but would settle for asshole.
i'm numb  
Les in TO : 11/9/2017 9:36 pm : link
by this season - I am actually indifferent - if they win, great, if they lose, it most likely will catalyze the big changes that are clearly needed to management, head coach and QB.
fuck this "team"  
annexOPR : 11/9/2017 9:41 pm : link
they dont even give a shit ... 1-15 start the rebuild
If you even consider rooting agains the Giants go be a fan of another  
SterlingArcher : 11/9/2017 9:55 pm : link
team! You are either a fan or not!
Seriously though  
BlueManFu : 11/9/2017 10:21 pm : link
At this point why would you root for them to scratch out 3 more wins for a a 4-12 season? Who gives a F about that? It’s sonkuch better for the future to go 1-15 and get the #1 player on your board, every round.
Hard to root for a loss  
jcn56 : 11/9/2017 10:25 pm : link
but it's the right thing for the organization.
This game is on my birthday  
beatrixkiddo : 11/9/2017 10:58 pm : link
And my birthday wish is a loss. Giants have nothing to gain anymore this season, gaining ground in the draft ordernis much more important to turning this franchise around. Let's put it this way, if They win a meaningless game and it results in them picking after San Fran, rhey could potentially miss out on the franchises next QB and we could be looking at a rather terrible team for a long time.
Rooting for a win  
Gregorio : 11/9/2017 11:03 pm : link
can't bring myself to want to lose.
I have always rooted for wins  
chopperhatch : 11/9/2017 11:12 pm : link
Except if the season is lost like this one. We are in need of a successor to Eli at QB. We are in need of a monumental disaster in order to guarantee that the FO and coaching staff is not given another chance at furthering the damage. We need huge losses. We need to lose to two winless teams in the same season.

Im rooting for a loss because the reemergence of our favorite team came to a crashing and parhetic halt. A horrendous loss. I want Eli to look good, but we need to prepare for the next chapter and we are in a great position to do so. Exceptionally so I might add.

And that's my feelings, as well.
That really is a tough question.  
short lease : 11/10/2017 1:23 am : link
And, I am surprised I feel that way ....

I guess I am thinking long term.

1. Changes should be (have to be?) made with the coaching staff.

2. Higher draft picks
Route 9 : 11/10/2017 3:02 am : link
It's weird. With these irrelevant games, I'll watch them not expecting much but sometimes, they find somehow, someway to piss me off. The only game that got me mad was the Tampa Bay game. These other games have just been laughers and pathetic. I'm just wondering if this will go the route of the Jacksonville game from 2014. Lol, pure fucking garbage.

I am just naturally sensing that the Giants will get you excited to see a rare win in this one but will eventually tank it in the end. The only reason there is nothing to look forward to, is because the last two games have been fucking BORING. I will include the LA Chargers game as well. Holy shit that was bad football on both ends.

It's 3 am and I should be getting to sleep. In the God damn winter, I sleep all day.
Hoping for a win. I won't  
Someguy1978 : 11/10/2017 4:25 am : link
cheer for them to lose. This Sunday will mark the 1st time that I can recall where I won't be watching them. Heading to National Harbor in DC with my wife and daughter for the day.
let's just say wouldn't mind a loss for better draft slot  
micky : 11/10/2017 6:31 am : link
more so than a win..a win..meh..what's a win getting you? understand a winning is important for players and coaches..its their job..but this whole season has been an uninterested meh
I can't ever root for a loss,  
slickwilly : 11/10/2017 6:54 am : link
but if they do lose I won't be upset about it like I normally am. I'm pretty indifferent at this point.

I'll be rooting for Manning to have a decent game and the usual suspects to explode with I told you so's (even when the Giants get trucked by a winless division 2 level team.)
It's the oddest thing  
arniefez : 11/10/2017 8:21 am : link
I watch the games with no reaction. The Giants score? Ok good. The other teams scores? Oh well. This is how I know what the Giants have to come to. If the Giants lost the 1:00 game in the past I was pissed off and done with football for the day and skipped Monday night. Now I just want the Giant game to be over one way or another so I can watch some interesting competitive games.
silverfox : 11/10/2017 8:23 am : link
49ers. In fact embarrase this gutless, arrogant, clueless franchise. We need a total cleaning of the barn. Lots of manure.
couldnt care any less...  
BronxBombers : 11/10/2017 9:01 am : link
ill be doing housework, its kinda nice having my sundays back (ugh).
it's lose-lose  
PaulBlakeTSU : 11/10/2017 9:08 am : link
If the Giants win, then I'll be happy to see them play well, but then be bitter at the end, thinking "now they decide to play well?" If they lose, then I just watched a team I like lose.

I know a loss helps our draft spot but I hate seeing the Giants stand as a laughing stock of the league.

I always root for Eli to play well. I think Reese and the front office destroyed the second half of Eli's career and ruined his standing among his peers.

Other than that, I'm treating it like pre-season. I'm rooting for the young players and for the players I see as part of the future of the Giants team to play well and show signs of improvement but ultimately, I don't care if they lose.
This is a lose - lose situation  
Rjanyg : 11/10/2017 9:10 am : link
On paper we should beat the Niner so if we win, we should have, if we lose we are beyond pathetic. I think there are 5 players in the draft that could help NYG so draft position is not as important as a win. My son has been so depressed about this season so I would like to see Eli have a great day and feel good about our team, even if for a week.

So I hope they win. Which means the Niner would draft Barkley and we would go OL, DE or QB
a loss.... i want a loss

The NBA is a prime example,  
Doomster : 11/10/2017 9:12 am : link
of teams tanking to get a high draft the last 4 seasons, Philly has picked 1, 1, 3, and 3....four straight seasons with a high pick, and though it is early in the season, are still a .5oo club....and this is a team sport of just 5 starters, not 26.....

Makes no difference if you have a high pick, but if you pick the wrong guy, good grief......

The Mara's have to realize the huge mistake they made....getting rid of DC, OC, HC one at a time did not correct their should have been in one huge sweep, starting with the GM.....and give Chris a new job, that doesn't involve player evaluation.....or what the hell, just make him the LB coach...
At 1-7  
EddieNYG : 11/10/2017 9:13 am : link
I would like to have the #1 or #2 pick.

Going on a run, not making the playoffs and picking between 5 and 10 would be bad at this point, IMO.

On game day I always root for a win. If they lose I’m consoled by the knowledge we are closer to the number one pick.

It's tough to actually want them to lose when teh game starts. My brain knows it's for the best, my heart don't want it.

Seriously though, a loss here could have ramifications for the next decade (in a positive way)
I'll be at this shit show,  
Section331 : 11/10/2017 9:25 am : link
leaving for SF tomorrow morning. I always root for a win, but when the team is bad, the losses don't bother me as much.
It really feels awful to say  
bigbluehoya : 11/10/2017 9:31 am : link
But in my mind it’s as close to a “must lose” game as I’ve ever felt.

I can respect the opinion of those who disagree, but I really don’t understand how anyone could disparage the fans rooting for a loss, or claim some “fanhood” superiority.

As long as someone is rooting for what they believe is in the best interest of the org, who are you to say? (one can very easily make the argument that losses in the immediate term are better for the long term of the franchise than winning).
Its semantics, but I have a really hard time  
Keith : 11/10/2017 9:35 am : link
rooting for a loss. These situations are very conflicting for me. I understand that we need losses for the long term, but it still doesn't feel right. I sort of just don't root for anything. Not only that, but when it matters, I won't miss a play. Now, I watch other games and focus on the giants a lot less.
I am rooting for a top 3 pick...  
Carson53 : 11/10/2017 2:39 pm : link
not necessarily a loss this weekend, won't shed a tear if it happens though.
No will root for a win  
Bluesbreaker : 11/10/2017 2:44 pm : link
I am guessing we might actually win this game but if it
meant a shot at Barkley then hell yeah .
I think the best we can do is 3-13 but you never know the
cards could beat us .
for a win  
bc4life : 11/10/2017 3:59 pm : link
always the win.
I love the “real fan” bullshit  
annexOPR : 11/10/2017 4:23 pm : link
This team is going nowhere. It sucks - a lot, but it’s true

Rooting for the W doesnt make you a “real fan”, it just makes you look like an incredibly short sighted individual who doesn’t want to deal with the fact his team is awful

Those of us “rooting against the Giants” are actually accepting reality and now shifting towards the long term outlook of this franchise - one in which higher draft picks increase the likelihood of returning to being competitive.

I love the Giants, and there is young enough talent on this roster to make it a realitively quick “rebuild”, but this team as is is an embarrassment that does not warrant cheering for pointless wins.
