Giants react after dropping to Seattle at home.
“I expected a great effort today. I think defensively and with our special teams, we got it. Offensively we did not – there’s no way to sugarcoat it. A pathetic offensive performance – we didn’t block anybody, we didn’t make any plays, we didn’t create any opportunities for ourselves. I told the players who prepared and gave great effort that I appreciated what they did, and I told those that were obvious they had not, that I felt sorry for them because they’re missing the whole point.” -Coach Tom Coughlin
“Coach Coughlin can’t take any of this blame. Like I said, personally, I won’t allow that. He can’t take any of this blame. Coaches coach and they did a phenomenal job getting us prepared for this. We had a great week of practice. Everything that we saw out there from their offense, we went over with our coaches, defensive coordinator, assistant coaches, so forth and so on, and they did an exceptional job preparing us for today. Coach Coughlin, he’s a coach, but he can’t coach heart, he can’t make a play or have heart, he can’t make a player have passion about this game, and that’s what we were lacking out there today. Like I said, coach can say what he wants, but personally, I won’t allow him to take that because coaches coach and the players play the game.” -S Antrel Rolle
“You go into this game and you know you’re out of the playoffs, but you kind of look forward to the opportunity to compete and go against a good defense and try to go out there and enjoy those three hours of playing football and doing something you love and competing and trying to have some good plays, but it’s not fun when you get dominated like that, when you get beat and you can’t get anything going offensively and obviously struggle and throw interceptions and have bad plays. So that’s not enjoyable and it’s tough to deal with.” -QB Eli Manning
“A good football team came out today. We didn’t get anything going on the offensive side of the ball. The defense played really good. It’s just a game we need to go back and look at film and critique ourselves and try to come out and fight another week.” -WR Hakeem Nicks
