Here are some notes and quotes following the New York Giants’ 36-25 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
“We played poorly. When you don’t deserve to win you don’t win. We didn’t compliment each other at all today. We had done that last week and I felt good about the end of the game – the way all three phases helped out – but this week, the sloppiness of the game, the turnovers. You’re not going to win football games when you’re handing people the ball, point blank range or whatever. So our woes continue with the rushing game, we didn’t stop the run.”
— Giants coach Tom Coughlin
“It is embarrassing as good as we have been playing the last couple weeks to come out here and lay an egg, embarrassing is the only way I can think of. It is at home and it is a game that we are not going to get back. They are in our conference and we have to play better than that.”
— Dave Tollefson of the Giants
