The New York Giants hear their fans. They realize an 0-3 start is far below expectations, and they understand the people who pay their bills want to see better results. Players aren't immune to hearing the masses, either. And while some of them don't necessarily deal with it in the appropriate way, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks wants you to know they're going to turn things around.
"We've dug ourselves in this hole and we're going to dig ourselves out," Nicks said on Wednesday.
Although he wasn't quite as committal as his teammate, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who also recently took aim at fans, also believes Big Blue is on the verge of turning their season around and should come away with a win this weekend.
"I'm pretty sure we'll come out with a win this week," Pierre-Paul said. "We’ve just got to go out there and do it. Stop saying must-win and stop saying it and go out there and do it as a team."
This, of course, is in stark contrast to the message sent by quarterback Eli Manning, who believes there's entirely too much talking going on. He has acknowledged that no words will fix the Giants' current problems, and the changes need to be made on the field.
Big Blue faithful would likely prefer the team take Manning's path as the whole "we're going to get this right" mantra has grown tiresome.
