What's interesting is this was the first game this season where the Giants didn't have a chance to win. They lost to Dallas and Atlanta in the opening two games, giving up late touchdowns. They beat Washington, Buffalo and the 49ers in close games.
If Coughlin had taken out a pad, he could have made a long list of everything that went wrong.
With a 7-0 first-quarter Jake Fisher Jerseylead, tight end Larry Donnell was stripped by linebacker DeMeco Ryans after getting two hands on a pass near the Eagles 20. The play was an interception instead of either a 10 or 14-point lead.
On the next series, defensive end Damontre Moore is called for a very late and senseless roughing the passer penalty on a third-and-10. The drive stays alive and Sam Bradford hits Riley Cooper for touchdown on a play in which a defensive back blew a coverage.
Nolan Carroll's pick-6 on a bad pass by Eli Manning gave Philadelphia the lead in the second quarter and the Giants never looked threatening again, especially with the offensive line being manhandled by the Eagles' front four.
The bottom line was the Giants contributed 21 points to the Eagles and failed to generate a point off the four turnovers they caused.
''Frustration? Yeah, no question about, you can sense it in my voice,'' Coughlin said. ''Especially when you've got a day where you don't have your team around here. You've got tape to look at and the coaches to talk with, but at the same time, because of the nature of the week, you've got to move on to the next opponent. You've got to get moving.''
The Giants can't afford a repeat performance. They play host to the Cowboys on Sunday and they certainly don't want to lose both games to Dallas, especially if the division title comes down to a tiebreaker.
