Giants continue to fight despite stats
Last Sunday the Giants lost to the Dallas Cowboys 24-21, a very close match. Now 4-7, the Giants insist that they are still in the fight and the mood to simply give in and not even bother on field is something they are unfamiliar with.
When running back Andre Brown was asked if they had given up hope of making it to the playoffs and were calling it quits, he said it was the exact opposite.
"No, man. Don't get me to say . no. We're still going to go out here and we're going to fight. You never know what's going to happen at the end of the season,” he said. “Go out there and get hot again and go out there and play games and win. Hopefully some things fall into our laps where we can go out there and play in the playoffs."
And the mood is same with the other players as Brown said.
"No giving up over here, if that's what you're trying to say," Brown said. "We're not going to do that. We're going to go out here and we're going to continue to fight. "
Coach Tom Coughlin knew it the moment they lost to the Cowboys that their chances of making it to the playoffs had been reduced to almost nothing. He shared the players’ view that the season wasn’t over simply because of playoffs chances and there were still games left to be played
"It's not going to be over until the five games are over. The one thing that all of you would like to try to figure into this is you don't have anything to play for. We've got a lot to play for,” Coughlin said. “We have a five-game schedule. We're playing against some outstanding football teams. We're trying to assert ourselves.”
Coughlin added that he was still analysing his team to make improvements and make a more solid team.
"We're not executing as well as we can and in all three phases at the same time, for sure. I'm looking for that. I'm always searching for perfection, the perfect game,” Coughlin said.
“We can't get it, perhaps, because we're human, but that's the objective and that's the goal and that's what we'll continue to fight for,” he continued. “It is the competitive nature of the player, of the coach, and that's where we are."
