After everyone came down off their proverbial ledges this past week, the realization that it really was only Week one of the 2012 regular season had sunk in. For most – doubters will be doubters.
In coming to the light, eventually the positive aspects (that were clearly there on the night of September 5th) were seen and somewhat admitted to. Some watched the game again as the coaches and players do. Some found it therapeutic, really. Walking away from a loss with the right mind frame is not only significant for the tone of the next game, but for the season. New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin knows what he has in his locker room in the way of the 53-man.
“It’s a bite out of humble pie is what it is,” Coughlin said at his postgame news conference. “It brings you right back down to earth. Last year was last year. We’ll get better. Hopefully the competitive nature of our guys will come out swinging.”
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul also saw what the fans saw.
“As a team we didn’t give all our effort, period,” said Pierre-Paul in the locker room. “We can do better and we know that as a team. We’re going to go over film and see what we did wrong.”
It was, again, one game. Focus hasn’t been lost. Areas still need attention. Some players need to step up and brush the offseason off their shoulders. Coaches need to dig deep earlier than normal.
The G-Men are still All In.
About 10 days ago they ran onto the field at MetLife Stadium to a song with the same mantra. They have an official 2012 anthem along with four (Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders) other NFL teams thanks to Pepsi and the NFL. By collaborating, they bring music and football together. Pepsi teamed up with five musicians to produce songs “inspired by their pride for their favorite NFL team.”
The New York Football Giants theme song was written and performed by Travie McCoy (solo artists and front man for the alternative band Gym Class Heroes). Since he was born and raised in upstate New York, McCoy took bus trips into New York City for his music purpose. The City became his second home and he apparently grew to be a fan of the New York Giants as he spent time there. The Big Blue franchise was All In for this production and offered muse to McCoy by inviting the artist out to the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford, where he also started getting friendly with Jersey phenom wideout, Victor Cruz, as well as the Justin Tuck-designed Super Bowl XLVI Ring.
Included in his mostly New York-themed lyrics are a shout out to Big Blue and its nation, resilient patriotic references, the qualities of: strength, determination and perseverance, as well as mention of the four rings the Giants possess (and that “anxious” thumb—that’s bare). It can be found and downloaded at www.pepsianthems.com. There’s a reason the team runs onto the field to this song; “We All In”, Big Blue Faithful.
