The Giants season has featured a mishmash of transgressions, each one building off the next until the environment was no longer sustainable. The real life NFL nightmare. While it’s not exactly pragmatic to condense such a volatile season into four key plays, I will nevertheless make an attempt do so — identifying each seminal moment that squashed the G-Men in chronological order.

    Truly a game of inches and players making plays. The Vikings, like the Giants, have had trouble making the timely play, and or getting off the field on 3rd down. At least for Giant fans you had a shot at getting back in a horrible division race, unlike the Vikings. The NFC North was virtually given to the Detroit Lions, but they refused to take it and now face a road that requires assistance from others.

    There’s still light for the Giants. They have their QB moving forward, so take solace in that fact. The Vikings, on the other hand, are lacking stability at the 3 key position of stability, GM, Head Coach, and QB…I doubt the Vikings have even 1 at this point? Anxiously awaiting draft day. Keep up the faith…

      The Giants have their QB..? This is news. You’ll have to convince their fan base this is the case… Two rings or not, they’re about ready to run him outta town.

        That’s what I don’t understand. It’s a what have you done lately thing I’m sure, But who’s the other Giants QBs that have won 2 Super Bowls? Face it, the Giants had plenty of questions coming into 2013. No running game, injury issues in the secondary prior to the season, too. They didn’t have an offensive line that could solidify by playing 2 games straight for the early part of the season.
        Eli has had a dreadful season, that’s for sure. Coughlin may have lost this team. If you recall during the last Super Bowl run there was clamoring that he should be fired. They got hot and won out. I’d say that the QB situation is fine in Jersey. The fan base needs to take a step back and realize that Eli, for all his faults, is a winner at the basic level. What’s puzzling is that they got back into the race in the NFC East. Proceed at your own peril…
