It’s always dangerous to start calling for changes after gut-punch losses like last night’s 19-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, during which 100 percent of Giants fans watching on television were 100 percent sure that Lawrence Tynes had split the uprights with his second-chance field goal attempt.
Tom Coughlin just signed a contract extension through 2014. He has won two Super Bowls in his eight seasons as Giants’ head coach, which was also true of Bill Parcells when he abruptly resigned several months before the 1991 season.
In an ESPN Sports Poll, which, I believe, simply asked fans, “What’s your favorite N.F.L. team?” the Giants ranked 3rd, at 7.1 percent. They were bested only by the Cowboys (obviously) and the Packers.
Another illustration of the disposability of N.F.L. players and the short memories of its fans and mythmakers: It wasn’t too long ago that Brandon Jacobs was the popular embodiment of Giants Football. The team was a throwback to an era of bruising, honest offenses, and so was he.(4)

Each day, the New York tabloids vie to sell readers at the newsstands on outrageous headlines, dramatic photography, and, occasionally, great reporting. Who is today's winner?
The sentiment of Giants fans after yesterday’s thrilling win over the Arizona Cardinals can be summed up thusly: At 3-1, nobody’s complaining.
Nobody’s complaining about benefiting from a controversial call on receiver Victor Cruz’s boneheaded voluntary fumble, which otherwise would have cost the Giants the game. (It was the right call, despite what NFL rules guru Mike Pereira initially said.) Nobody’s complaining about an ugly win against what is probably a subpar team. Nobody’s complaining about a defense that gave up 156 rushing yards to a ground attack that hadn’t cracked 100 all year. And nobody’s complaining about the Giants’ running game, which looked bad yesterday, like it has all season.
