It’s going to be a long time before NY Giants fans can get over Saturday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round at Lincoln Financial Field. Despite the Eagles being favorites to record a win, plenty of Big Blue supporters still had a gut feeling that another upset win would be on the way.
Unfortunately, Jalen Hurts and Co. had other ideas. For head coach Brian Daboll, his first year as head coach of this team was one to remember. Despite Daboll and his players proving the world wrong with their incredible year, that doesn’t mean the loss in Philly doesn’t hurt his heart.
An emotional Daboll made sure to remind everyone what this squad means to him shortly after the final whistle.

Things just didn’t go the Giants way in this one, and you’ve got to give a lot of credit to the Eagles for the way they played. From the opening kickoff, it was clear that Philly was ready to rock, with Hurts putting on a show in the first quarter, tossing his two touchdowns. The Giants didn’t match their intensity, plain and simple.
However, nothing from Saturday takes away from the brilliant first year for Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen in East Rutherford. These two have completely turned around the culture for this team and the future is no question bright for the G-Men.
Daboll is all in on getting the Giants back to their best level. With the roster make up, thanks to the cap issues, no one thought Big Blue would even come close to making the playoffs, let alone advance to the Divisional Round. This group exceeded expectations throughout the fall and winter, which was amazing to see.
For Daboll, he cares about every single one of his players and he knows they’re hurting right now too. Again, this is going to sting for a while, but the Giants and Daboll have nothing to be ashamed of. They have the fan base excited about what’s to come for this organization down the road.
