“I expect us to compete like heck. I don’t think that, the noise is not going to be the issue. We’ve got to regroup and compete like heck and play much better and do a better job in protecting the quarterback. We can’t have anything like the first three snaps of the game the other day. We do obviously have to have some balance and be able to run a little bit against a very good defensive team. But I expect us to prepare well and to go up there with the idea of competing and doing the best we possibly can, finding a way to win.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

What they’re saying: Giants vs. Seahawks

Posted by Joe Kania on December 16, 2013 – 3:00 pm

Giants react after dropping to Seattle at home. 

Tom Coughlin

“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

What they’re saying: Giants vs. Chargers

Posted by Joe Kania on December 9, 2013 – 2:00 pm

Giants react after losing to San Diego. 

Tom Coughlin

“I just told the team and anybody in listening distance that the major disappointment here today is to have a chance to get into a game where both teams are 5-7 and have a chance to win a ballgame and try to regain some respectability. We had played pretty well five or six weeks in a row and then we came in here today and the first half was just a very, very poor performance. We turned the ball over twice, they scored twice. They missed a field goal. Of course, we were off-sides and gave them another opportunity to make it. They made that. They scored late on us when we didn’t make a call downstairs that we thought was a fumble. We let the clock run down to two minutes, then they challenged and got the ball back. The first half was a major disappointment. I didn’t think we tackled well. We certainly didn’t stop the run. They were very high percentage on third downs the entire game. We came out in the second half and got a turnover on the first play and put it in the endzone. It looked like we were sparked, the way we came out of the locker room after halftime, but it was short-lived. They’ve come by their reputation for time of possession honestly. They have a very good scheme in terms of rushing the ball and throwing the ball at a high percentage and also throwing the ball down the field. They made the big play on us passing in the first half for a touchdown. Although we were in position, we didn’t make any plays

in the redzone. A couple of times we got into third down and distances but we weren’t able to stop them. Then in the second half, right there at the end we were trying to drive to score. We got the ball back with the turnover which wasn’t a turnover, then we turn it over at the end of the game and don’t give ourselves a chance to go down and score. Very, very disappointing loss for us. We have a three game schedule to go. We have three games to work as hard as we can, prepare as hard as we can and see if we can regain some of the respectability we lost today.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“It’s been tough. Obviously today we got down and you try to compete and make some things happen but I haven’t analyzed the whole season but you just try to go game by game and try to make adjustments to get better. After the season we’ll look at it and try to figure that part out but we still have three games to go to try to make some adjustments and get better.” -QB Eli Manning

“We didn’t play together. We had spots where we played decently but then there were some spots where they made some huge plays on third down in the game and they were able to capitalize on some short fields and get some points up early. You can’t expect to continue to start as slow as we did today and last week and come back from that especially against good football teams like the one we played today. We just didn’t play well enough.” -DE Justin Tuck

“It’s difficult but it’s reality. Only thing we can do now is control playing these last three games to really show what we are made of. I don’t like it by a stretch, but it’s reality like I said and we have to face it.” -WR Hakeem Nicks

Throwback Thursday: Philip Rivers unbeaten vs. Justin Tuck teams

Posted by Joe Kania on December 5, 2013 – 2:50 pm

Philip Rivers and Justin Tuck have played each other three times in their careers: twice in the NFL and once when Rivers and North Carolina State defeated Tuck and Notre Dame in the 2003 Gator Bowl. 

Screen Shot 2013-12-05 at 11.34.49 AM

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers appears to have Justin Tuck’s number.

Rivers heads into Sunday’s game against the Giants with a 3-0 all-time record against Tuck, defeating him twice in the NFL (2005, 2009) and once in college in the 2003 Gator Bowl. And in two professional meetings, Tuck has never sacked Rivers.

RIVERS JOHNSONAs a senior in that Gator Bowl, Rivers won MVP honors by throwing for 228 yards and two touchdowns and led his North Carolina State Wolfpack team past Tuck and Notre Dame, 28-6. Tuck, a sophomore, didn’t start that game but saw the field as a primary backup.

“I know Tuck,” Rivers said to the New York media on Wednesday. “I was going against him and Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl way back in ’02-’03, so he’s had a heck of a run there… (in New York)”

Following that game Rivers declared for the NFL Draft and was selected fourth overall by the Giants and traded to the Chargers. The Giants selected Tuck two years later in the third round of the 2005 draft after he’d become Notre Dame’s all-time sack leader (23.5)

Tuck had just nine sacks in his previous two seasons with the Giants but recorded four in the team’s Week 13 victory over Washington, earning the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week award. He has 6.5 sacks on the season, his most since picking up 11.5 in 2010.

But sometimes, good or bad, the numbers can be misleading.

“There was a lot said about him and two and a half sacks or whatever and then he goes out and has four in a game,” Rivers said. “I think really the stats and the numbers are more for the newspapers and just to talk about and see the stats and this and that. I think, as players, we turn on the tape and just because (there aren’t) sacks doesn’t mean they aren’t pressuring and they aren’t really good rushers and they haven’t been playing well.”

Coach Tom Coughlin reiterated — he’s been close and the numbers aren’t everything.

“He’s been one of those guys that I’ve referenced when I talked about if we got credit for the sacks that we’ve kid of missed or whatever he’s one of the guys that I would include there. To have six and a half sacks, to play the way he’s played, to move in over the guard at times, to start out outside at tomes, I think he played a solid game (against Washington) and now we can hopefully expect that he’ll do the same for the remainder of the season.”

What they’re saying: Giants vs. Cowboys

Posted by Joe Kania on November 25, 2013 – 3:00 pm

What did the Giants have to say after losing to Dallas on Sunday?

Tom Coughlin

“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

We get the touchdown and get the two-point conversion. I’m proud of the way we responded and offensively came through and came up big when we needed to.

QUOTABLES

“We kept the same goal every game all season long. It didn’t work out quite the way we wanted to in the beginning and then we were able to win a couple of games because we were playing better football. Three of the four, we didn’t turn the ball over the way we had been earlier. One we did and we’re fortunate to win despite that. We’re playing good, solid run defense. We picked up our run game. Our distribution of run and pass has been better. We’ve had a couple of times when our special teams hasn’t helped us, but then again last week, they did. So we’re playing a little bit better.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. PACKERS

“Good to win. I thought we did some things well tonight. There’s obviously more to be done. Special teams had a better night, no doubt. Rueben had the nice punt return, which helped right off the bat. Felt we should have scored when we were down there in the first half and came away with no points, felt we should have scored there. In the second half, the battle went back and forth. We got a little bit of rushing yardage, not a lot. We did a great job against them as well, which we have done all year against the run, against a very good back, and a very good offensive line as well. We were plus-two in turnovers. I was pleased with that. I think we had three penalties, I was pleased with that as well. So, we are very, very happy to win at home against a very good team.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“Going into this game we have a young quarterback, established offensive line, big time running back who’s a load, a hard tackle you have to swarm. We were able to stop the run and sure enough, kid comes out and makes huge plays in the passing game. We wanted to put the pressure on him, but he was able to make plays, but we stayed the course and we got some turnovers late and that was able to affect the outcome of the game.” -LB Jon Beason

“I think it was a good job by everybody on the offense, just knowing their assignments.  I think we ran the ball well and they did a good job to stop the run so we did a good job of throwing short passes.  Getting Brandon Myers into it, getting our backs into it on some screens, getting them out of the backfield. Linebackers are dropping deep trying to take away the receivers.  I think that’s what you have to do for an offense to be successful.  Everybody has to know their assignments and be in the right places.   If you want to take away throws down the field, then you’re going to have to throw underneath a few times to open things up down the field for big plays later on.” -QB Eli Manning

“I knew that it was a touchdown.  As soon as I caught it, I knew it was a touchdown.  I’m not a receiver or anything, but I knew it was a touchdown. ” -DE Jason Pierre-Paul

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. RAIDERS

“We don’t make it easy on ourselves, but we did find a way to win, and I think the only way that happens is that the players believed at halftime that [they were] going to win. That’s basically the way it happened. If you look closely, we were minus-one, but we traded off some of the really bad or good plays, and I think that was very much a positive.  We couldn’t have fathomed starting the game off like we did, and then we block a punt. They intercept and score; we intercept the ball and go to their three-yard line. So it kind of went back and forth. Andre Brown certainly… I told you 40 carries the other day, and I certainly didn’t mean to mislead you. It was 30. He gave us what we needed. He had a little spark out there – some power runs. Almost broke free a couple times as well.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“I carried it 30 times? It felt like 50. There were a couple times where I was like, “Ahh,” tapped myself and got out of there but I didn’t know… I guess coach did say… what did he predict, 40? He was 10 off. Yeah, I didn’t expect that many carries but when we’re down there running the ball like we did, I guess you stay on pace and you stay on track. I guess we just keep it rolling.” -RB Andre Brown

“We’re finding ways to win and that’s nice and obviously we’ve won three in a row but we still have to figure out some things. We still have to play a little bit better but we are coming together as a team and finding ways to win games in the fourth quarter and playing a little better so obviously that’s good to see. That’s what we need to do and we’ve got to keep working offensively. The defense has been playing outstanding, they’ve been playing really great. Offense, we’ve got to start being a little more consistent and having some better drives and obviously not putting them in a bind and turning the ball over.” -QB Eli Manning

“Honestly, we really haven’t lost any of that optimism. Even at 0-6 we still felt as though we could still climb out of the hole we were in. We still are in the hole but obviously it feels good to have three in a row here and two more games in a row at home. We’re starting to play with a lot of confidence and that’s something that hopefully we can continue to build on and continue to get back in this race.” -DE Justin Tuck
