"We got punched in the mouth and didn't do anything about it," said defensive tackle Chris Canty.
The Giants were angered by their performance, and by the fact that they did not respond when quarterback Eli Manning was brutally slammed to the turf on an un-penalized late hit after he threw an interception.
"I think our response, or lack thereof, was embarrassing," said Canty.
"You don't take (stuff) from anybody. And last night, I felt like we took a little bit," said safety Antrel Rolle. "In order for us to go where we want to go, things are definitely going to have to change."
Problem is, all of this talk comes too late to do the Giants any good. They have now lost three games against teams with losing records, and have a difficult, perilous road ahead to try and make the playoffs. They need to stop talking and start performing.
