New York Media Out-Does Itself
Several versions about the idea that cities and teams should have a grace period of non-complaint after championships have been written across the internet. The New York media is not one of the groupings that believe in this concept at all.
The Giants lost a game at home where they are a .500 team over the last five seasons. They lost to a team that seems to be getting in stride offensively. They lost after they spent a week dealing with losing power, losing vehicles and finding family members. They lost and still have a 2.5 game lead in their division. After the loss, they are three games over .500 and are in line to compete for a home playoff game. Maybe they don't want one. They tend to do well without them
Of course, the New York media immediately started to question the team today.
Now, there is some merit to the argument that the Giants do tend to swoon after good starts under Coughlin. The team has only been 28-37 under their red-faced leader during the second half of the season. I just think the media could have waited one more week before pouncing on the story.
