Giants Imitate Redskins in Humiliating Loss

Giants fans should feel like they got hit by a truck. What happened here? The defense was just awful--Chiefs like--in a 41-9 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart ran for 206 yards and QB Matt Moore, a third year man out of Oregon State subbing for the injured Jake Deholmme, threw for three TDs. Carolina had no turnovers while the Giants had two lost fumbles and two interceptions. The team looked dead and lifeless. The Giants are done, since Dallas won the nightcap last night against Washington. And to think it all looked so promising at the beginning...
The Giants just had an awful day tackling. The most cursory review of the video highlights showed that they were constantly slipping off, bouncing off and wiffing on Carolina ball carriers like Jonathan Stewart, here. (
The crowd, at first feeling festive because of play off possibilities and this being the last game at Giants Stadium before it is torn down to make way for a new one, first boo'ed lustily as the game went on, then left for home. This photo was taken in the fourth quarter. (
