The Manningham fumble turned the tide. If he doesn't fumble that game is over. No excuse just hold onto the ball and go out of bounds.  This has to be the biggest choke job since they lost that playoff game to San Fran. when Garcia was the QB.




I forget; wasn't Fassel the coach then?


Because, you know, Coughlin needs to learn how to beat the Eagles from Fassel.


And, if I'm not mistaken, Fassel was also the head coach when they blew a 9-point lead in the divisional playoff game against the Vikings in the last 90 seconds in his first season.


But, hey, no Giants team has every suffered a humiliating collapse. At home.


Just wondering if anyone knows the Giants lost 5 of 6 to the Eagles in Parcells' last 3 seasons. Including a 1-1 split in the 2nd Super Bowl season.

Yes, yes, Coughlin is likely to be fired after this season. This sort of collapse usually leads to a coach firing. If they miss the playoffs now, which can still happen, the probably rises to nearly 100%.

Fassel was the coach. That game was brutal also. Owens had a big game .I guess it comes down to the GreenBay game. If they win I think they are in but if they lose and don't make it he's gone. After last years ending Reese would have no choice to get rid of him. This punter has to go to. He's killing them.

Yup. Also, I don't remember which it was, but it would either have been a first down or third and short. Who knows, maybe the Giants convert, move the ball down the field and score some points. It was a HUGE play in the game. And every play (and possession) counts against these Eagles.


Oddly enough, in the last game at the old stadium, Manningham fumbled on the opening drive and the Giants then proceeded to get their rear ends kicked by the Panthers. Manningham has talent but I'm not at all sure about his mental capacity. The loss of Steve Smith is a big blow.

Yeah, though at least some of the sting of that loss was removed by 2007. This is a fresh wound inflicted by a division rival.


Anyway, the good news is that the Giants remain ahead of the Packers in the playoff chase.

I heard that Manningham took the test all draft eligible players take to measure their intelligence and he scored really low. He also catches a pass past the 1st down mark and then retreats trying to get more yards and ends not getting the first down a lot. Not my favorite player right now.

Yeah, I recall him doing that this year (vs. the Bears, I think); Giants were lucky to get the first down that time.
