The Giants failed on two fourth downs on the Falcons side of the field and Lawrence Tynes has missed a field goal, developments that have combined to bring about the return of ragey Tom Coughlin, who makes the best old man throat slash motions. A statement win by the Falcons would seemingly get the media off their back, but last I checked this isn’t a playoff game, so talking heads will continue hounding Atlanta players and coaches about why they’ve yet to win a postseason game in the middle of the regular season.
UPDATE: With Coughling already frothing, perhaps it’s best not to be asking him this incredibly inane question after a shutout. Not that there’s ever a great time to ask this:
Someone actually just asked Tom Coughlin if thoughts of the Newtown tragedy were why the Giants got beaten so bad.
