The NY Giants are 0-2 and grouped among seven teams in the NFL that can’t achieve a win in the NFL:
There they are, the elite of Loserville, USA. The winless of the NFL, and yes, the NY Giants are included. Sure, you can read headlines like:
However, the keyword in both of those sentences is: Winless. Fluffing NY Giants Nation about that fact is silly, the team can’t win. Every team on that list couldn’t afford to start the NFL season slow and that was especially true with team BLUE.

As you know, the NY Giants play one of those teams this Sunday at MetLife Stadium — the surprise Houston Texans with their fast start. GMEN HQ will preview that game all week.

For today, look at those lists… two games into the season and the NY Giants aren’t among the fool’s gold winners’ of the NFL. That said, they aren’t playing good football either.
Make no mistake, all seven undefeated teams are in a better spot than the G-MEN, but there is some credence to the fanatics that claim it’s still early. Mostly it’s healthy BS, but if it makes you feel better to think 0-2 is interchangeable with 2-0, whatever works… right?
For the 2014 season, the NY Giants need to get it together and join the other 18 NFL teams with at least one win, because that number is going to keep climbing with or without the NY Giants.
