Giants WR Victor Cruz still playing the games with a positive attitude
The Giants aren’t in a good position to say that they will play the games for the sake of their honour after how they played on Sunday. Their gameplay was poor and the performance was devoid of any will to win the game. Needless to say, they will be playing the games simply because there are games left to be played.
Cruz said although the season was lost they would play the games they had with a positive mindset.
"It's unusual but you just have to continue to play football and continue to stay positive and finish the season strong and keep everyone healthy,” Cruz said “and do the right things from a football standpoint and cherish the small moment that we have together and keep it going from there."
Wins over Seattle and Detroit would be something to cherish. But how much would it go toward helping the organization figure out how to get better and avoid another playoff-less season next year?
The Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions are next in line against the Giants and wins over them would be much needed aid to cheer up the gloomy atmosphere. But the real question is whether the wins and losses from this season would serve as lessons for the franchise to learn from and adapt to emerge as a stronger team. The question isn’t how bad they fared this season but rather is if they will learn from their failures and improve on it to make it to the playoffs next season.
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said that they were looking forward to the games and was focused on preparing the team to go strong in them. He added that the time to discuss failures was after the season had ended.
"We've got a three-game schedule and we're going to try to play and coach as hard as we can and take these things one at a time and then at the end of this season, we'll reflect,” he said. “But right now is not the time for me, anyway.”
