FOX and NY Giants radio announcers rip everyone on team but Tom Coughlin
Tom Coughlin should listen to what the broadcast crews are saying about his team, who suggesting that they are giving up.

Yet on TV (Fox) and radio (Giants Radio Network), the criticism extended far beyond physical or mental breakdowns, which may indicate someone is not paying attention to the coach. The rips centered on effort and lack of heart. Even during their well documented second half of the season collapses, the Giants were rarely accused of laying down like dogs and quitting.
On Sunday, no one used the word quit, but that's what they meant to say. Coughlin might want to sync up the sound as he "studies" the coach's tape. Then he would hear Carl Banks say: "The Giants are totally accepting this beatdown."

Then Coughlin might hear the disgust in Banks' voice in the fourth quarter when he said: "Be tired of getting your butt whipped. Do something! They never even tried to get chippy. You don't see it on either side of the ball. . You can't get beaten to a pulp and just take it."
Fox's Brian Billick and Thom Brennaman dropped the hammer on the Giants early. Near the end of the second quarter, Brennaman called the Giants offensive line's performance "an unmitigated disaster." Billick took it a step further.
"The body language, the mentality, the emotion of the game is just not there for the Giants," Billick said. "Tom Coughlin said 'we need for something to happen.' They had that 'something to happen' and couldn't do anything with it."
The voice's words only served www.broncosofficialonlinestore.com/Michael_Schofield_Jersey_Broncos as captions for pictures revealing a Giants team with no pulse. Whether it was Eli Manning hanging his head, or rubbing his eyes in disbelief. Then there were multiple close ups of hollow eyed Giants sitting quietly on the bench. Anger took a holiday.

The Giants have received soft treatment from a media still allowing the team to live off Coughlin's two Super Bowl wins. Will the harsh assessment from the booth filter down, extending to the media covering the team? Or will the sorry state of the NFL East take the edge of this embarrassing defeat?
Those subscribing to the later likely don't recognize, as Banks did, this: The Giants are a team in need of a heart transplant.
