our game yesterday may have destroyed the giants locker room


Recommended Posts


What a difference a week makes.

Last Saturday, the Giants looked like the best threat to unseat the Seattle Seahawks as the presumptive NFC representative in the Super Bowl, following New York's pummeling of the Chiefs.

Now, the Giants are reeling after a convincing loss to the suddenly surging Redskins, and there are signs that the G-men could be coming apart at the seams.

Indeed, the worst thing any team needs at a time when every game counts is dissension in the locker room, and we're told that there's plenty of finger-pointing after the Christmas Eve Massacre at FedEx Field.

First, we're told that some players believe that tight end Jeremy Shockey and receiver Plaxico Burress quit on the team in the second half of the game.

To make matters worse, coach Tom Coughlin called for the team to gather 'round -- but Burress remained at his locker. Then Coughlin specifically told Burress to come over and Burress said, "I can hear you" (or words to that effect). Coughlin said nothing more.

Another bone of contention within the locker room is the manner in which the team has handled its injury-riddled linebacker position. The presence of guys like Alonzo Jackson and Roman Phifer, and the recent decision to give 47-year-old Jessie Armstead a look-see, has prompted at least one player to describe the situation as a "f--kin' joke.

Though we don't think any of this will keep the Giants from having a successful New Year's Eve journey to the Black Hole, the team had better be on the same page for that long flight to Oakland, because if they lose to the Raiders and the remaining dominoes fall the wrong way, the flight home could be a lot longer.

its PFT,but I could very see what they are saying being the truth.

if true, all we gotta do is beat the eagles. and the east is most likely ours :applause:

I'm not holding my breath about taking the div, it that was gonna happen the Raider game we needed to take care of was the one in FedEx, but dayum! This isn't bad news for Skins fans, if this is accurate about Plaxico then dayum! and Shockey can't be too happy 'cuz he sure looked like a fool yesterday whining for a flag while we take back downfield on him. That for me was the highlight of the game, I do so love it when a loudmouth gets shown up that blatantly.

I was just thinking that the Giants seemed to be a team lacking in character and ready to fly apart at the seams at the first sign of adversity -- like they did last year. It's even more apparent when you look at our team, which has the best chemistry I've seen in a Redskin team since 91.

And while it's easy to point at Shockey for making an ass of himself week after week, my gut feeling is that Strahan is the real cancer on that team. He's a great player, but he just comes off as a fountain of negetivity with regards to his comments. He's the jaded veteran that players look to when they've decided to tune Coughlin out.

But, again, that's just the impression I get. I could be way off base.

Seriously. Norval has to beat them. Not a chance in hell.

yuppp...if it was any other coach in the league id have a little confidence, but since its norv, im about 100% positive the giants will win. norv cannot win a game that has any importance to him to save his life. this game could be his job, meaning that he will definitely lose
