What did the Giants have to say after losing to Dallas on Sunday?
“Good, hard fought divisional game. It came down to the last couple of seconds. I thought we played hard. We didn’t make as many plays as we’d hoped. We drove back in the second half. We got the ball in the end zone, got the two-point play. We let them out of the hole a couple of times, rose up and got the ball for the offense a couple of times, which was the only way we were going to have any kind of field position. Very disappointed. Players played hard. They wanted to win very badly. We were down in the green zone a couple of times in the first half and came away with field goals. You always hold that in the back of your mind, is that going to come back and haunt you? Obviously it did. We rushed the ball very well tonight. We didn’t particularly throw the ball or have as much yardage as we would have thought with the passing game. Our defense, I think, had one third down up until that last drive. We had them in outstanding position there a couple of times, 3rd and 10. Even the last one 3rd and 10, that’s not gimme field goal, not on a night like this where the ball is hard. Both teams played hard. We felt like we obviously had a chance and should have won, but we didn’t. Credit where credit is due and back to work.” -Coach Tom Coughlin
“It’s always tough, you know, when you are on the sideline and you can’t do anything about what’s going on. It’s always painful. I thought our overall game was pretty good. We had some penalties that really hurt us during the game. We had some plays that I wish we could have had back. We just got to keep fighting and try to battle back. We got five games left, play one game at a time and just hope for some other things to happen.” -RB Brandon Jacobs
“It’s disappointing. Early in the game we had some opportunities to get some touchdowns and get the lead or keep the game close, and we obviously didn’t execute well enough down there. We had a couple plays where we went backwards, which is always tough, and it makes it more difficult to score. We had third and goal from the 10, so we’ve got to do better down there to get touchdowns and not settle for field goals.” -QB Eli Manning
“Yeah it hurts. There’s no doubt about it that it hurts. We can’t hang our head on this loss. We’ve still got five more games to play, we’ve just got to rally up, just keep doing what we’ve been doing the past five weeks. I think our preparation was good, I think our execution was pretty good. Both teams were fighting, someone had to come up short and unfortunately it was us.” -S Antrel Rolle
“I think we played our heart out but we didn’t play to our full capability. We made a lot of mistakes out there. When you make mistakes like that, you’re not going to win. We made a lot of mistakes and we just have to move on to the next game.” -Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul
