After consecutive losses to the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens a season ago, the New York Giants were left scratching their head. It was as if they had seen a ghost; they were confused and had no explanation for what was happening. In fact, it's still a question that lingers to this day. What happened? How can you explain such a horrific collapse? They haven't been able to answer that.
Unfortunately, it's beginning to look like that uncertainty has carried over into 2013. Now at 0-2 following a 41-23 loss to the Denver Broncos, the Giants are again left wondering what the hell happened. And when asked about it on Sunday night, defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka had absolutely no answers.
"That’s what we’ve got to study on film. If there are little things, little assignments here and there, then we can get that corrected. If there are bigger things, then we’re going to have to address those issues," Kiwanuka said. "Right now, I think we’ve just got to stay calm, go back to the tape and watch it with a critical eye on ourselves and make sure that we get it done."
One thing Kiwi did allude to was that, perhaps, not everyone is giving it all they've got.
"We’ve got guys who are 100 percent into it and we’ve got guys who are 150 percent into it. So now everybody’s got to step it up to that next level," he added.
Fellow defensive end and team captain, Justin Tuck, had at least a few answers.
"This game was different from a lot of lows. We had opportunities," Tuck said. "We have to go out there and start taking advantage of opportunities and somebody had to step up and make a play. We didn’t make enough plays today."
The Giants now find themselves in a "must win" position going into week three against the Carolina Panthers. Additional missed opportunities could land this team at 0-3 and put them in a hole precious few have ever battled back from.
