Tom Coughlin says negativity must change to start winning again

Published Add your comment

The New York Giants have become the champions... at throwing away games in the last quarter, having double digit leads going into that said quarter.

New York can only blame themselves for the problems, which head coach Tom Coughlin has come out and spoke about, as per Pro Football Talk.

Coughlin told the reporters at his presser today that the problem was a pretty simple one: They have to play better. He also mentioned that when he spoke to his players and staff, he had told them that they have to perform the way they know they can to end the current three-game losing streak.

Coughlin said of their performances: "We’ll win when we deserve to win. We haven’t done enough things to put us over the top. We have got to get back to work. We have four games to go. We’ve got to work extra hard as a coaching staff, and our players will work hard, and we’ve got to win a game and change this negativity and get going in the right direction.”

The Giants coach also noted how they've been extremely close to winning all their games, however currently sit with a 5-7 record. He eluded to the point that this season, the Giants have had two losses by one point, two losses by three points, one loss by four points and one loss by six points.

“We’re all sick of losing, let’s face it,” Coughlin said. “We’ve had too many close games that went the wrong way at the end of the game. . . . When the game is on the line, we have to step up and make plays.”

If there is any consolation to Big Blue and their fans, it's that they are only half-a-game out of the top spot of the NFC East and would move to the top jointly should the Redskins lose the divisional game against the Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

The Giants might not be winning games, however, with what was once considered the toughest division to win, they may still be able to win it.
