New York Giants Embarrassed by Seattle Seahawks in 23-0 Beatdown

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said earlier in the week that he was concerned with the Seattle Seahawks' ability to embarrass their opponents and then laugh about it later. On Sunday, his worst fears were realized as the Seahawks came into MetLife Stadium and absolutely wiped the floor with Big Blue to the tune of 23-0 — a score that doesn't indicate how out of hand the game itself really was.

Quarterback Eli Manning threw five interceptions, passing Charlie Conerly for the franchise lead in interceptions (169), as the offense managed only 181 total yards (many of those coming when the game was already out of hand).

"It was a pathetic offensive performance. We didn't create any opportunities for ourselves," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "The ball was thrown up and we [repeatedly] got out-fought for the ball."

Adding injury to insult, the Giants also lost wide receiver Victor Cruz to a concussion after coming down awkwardly on a high ball. The pass was also ruled incomplete, dropping Cruz's total receiving yards to 998 and putting his third career 1,000 yard season in jeopardy.

Defensively, the Giants held tough amidst tremendous adversity for most of the game, but began to gas out late in the third quarter. Turnovers, time of possession and field position were more than they were able to overcome despite a valiant effort which saw a much improved pass rush led by the aforementioned Justin Tuck. But, it can not go overstated that holding a very powerful Seattle offense to 3-for-13 on third down is an impressive accomplishment.

With the loss, the Giants fall to 5-9 on the season, whereas the Seahawks improve to 12-2. The Giants will head to Michigan to play the Detroit Lions (7-6) in Week 16, while the Seahawks will play host to the Arizona Cardinals (8-5).

Game Notes:

  • The Giants did not run a single play in Seattle territory until under 7:00 left in the fourth quarter.
  • Eli Manning's five interceptions gave him 25 on the season, tying his career high. The five interceptions were also a career high.
  • It was the first time the Giants have been shut out at home in a regular season game since September 4th, 1995 (Dallas Cowboys).

    And Brown broke his leg in garbage time. Awful. See ya Tommy.

    •  turkish says:

      My bad ….. Misread the post. Brown broke his leg in a different 4th garbage time game.

    •  Dirt says:

      Wow, really? What a fvkin aszhole this entire staff is.

      They’re freiggen lucky Eli didn’t get hurt in garbage time behind that line. Can you imagine that sh|tstorm?

      •  turkish says:

        I misread a tweet from a reporter. Brown is fine.

        •  turkish says:

          Connor Orr
          @ConorTOrr: Curtis Painter currently slinging it for the #Giants. Also, why Andre Brown here? Brown broke a leg in the 4th of a meaningless game.

  2.  Dirt says:

    Cruz is in no danger of missing a 1,000 yard season. They’re playing for pride, you know. Coughlin will wheel him out in a wheelchair if he needs to.

  3.  James Stoll says:

    Not a surprise. Painful but not surprising.
    Offensive line may have hit a new low today.
    Eli was just terrible. Terrible. Makes you wonder.
    Nicks is out of here or so it looks.
    Defensively they did play pretty well, but what a beat down.
    And Eli – wow, does he stink right now

    Regardless of the putrid o-line, every one of those picks was on him
    His passes were either inside when they should have been out
    Behind when they should have been ahead
    16M going on 16.5 going on 17M and this is what we get

    A long valley of darkness awaits this team
    Think 2017

  4.  Krow says:

    There’s really a startling lack of talent on the offensive side of the ball. It’s not one or two guys. This includes what passes off as depth. There’s just nothing.

    •  James Stoll says:

      The giants are in big big trouble. The o-line is a 2 to 3 year fix. By then who knows what else has turned into a mess. WR is heading that way. TE is already there. RB is not far behind. And QB. Oh QB. Eli is certainly the worst 2 time Super Biwl MVP to ever don a uniform. He may actually be the worst QB in the NFL right now. 25 INTs. A QB rating that must be hovering in the 50′s. And he costs 16M!!

      If you dont blow this entire thing up right now, coaching staff, GM and players combined, expect sub-5 win seasons as far into the future as the eye can see

  5.  Dirt says:

    Somewhere, there’s a newspaper executive blabbering about the same status quo and “we’re not far removed from success” BS as some of the current supporters of this staff.

  6.  Syed Sohail Shah says:

    Did Eli make bad throws yes? Is the blame partially on him ? Yes. Is it time to benh him and start questioning if he’s a starter and worth the big money? nO

    It is pure stupidity. The offensive line has been so bad Eli has no time to even survey the field. This throws and movement are all panicked because he’s been pressured and sacked more than he ever has.

    Then at the same time his number 1 receiver decides to take a year off or whatever the case is with him. Put any QB in that situation and if you don’t see the same results.

    •  James Stoll says:

      Disagree. A great QB paid 16M+ does not play this badly
      Eli just is not that good; right now he s flat out bad
      You dont bench him because there are no alternatives
      But you also don’t restructure and give him extra years
      You have 2 years left on his contract
      You have to build an o-line; draft a real replacement for Eli; and then at the end of 2015 you decide whether to bring Eli back for short money to mentor his replacement
      Eli’s career is over; at least the good part of it
      Especially since he’ll be saddled with Coughlin and Gilbride for the length of it

  7.  TroyThorne says:

    While this was embarrassing maybe it will be the catalyst for some much needed changes.

    Nicks is toast btw. This game pretty much confirms it.

    •  Krow says:

      In his mind he’s gone to Carolina.

    •  Syed Sohail Shah says:

      I dunno about everyone else, but when the camera was on Nicks and he was smiling on the field that bothered me. Dude your team is getting killed and you are not helping at all, please at least keep your game face on smh

      •  Krow says:

        If you’ve ever seen someone who’s given their two-weeks notice … or has put in for retirement … that’s how Nicks looks. He’s enjoyed his time here … made lots of friends … and had a great run. He’s going to miss all the folks he’s worked with these past 5 years … etc etc. I can write this memo in my sleep.

  8.  Krow says:

    It all starts with fixing the OL. Then go from there. That will solve a lot of the pressing problems. Right now it looks like close to a total revamp of that unit. Interior most likely needs two additions. That might return Beatty to form. Pugh will be fine. But I don’t see any discernible depth either. And TE is worrisome. Myers is a decent ‘catch first’ kind of guy, but doesn’t look the part of a quality starter. Pascoe is trash, but game. And Robinson is a ghost.

    •  James Stoll says:

      Pugh got abused today
      Beatty is dreadful
      If the interior were not so bad we’d be screaming for these two guys’ heads
      Thats why it’s at least a 2-3 year fix

  9.  Tony Burke says:

    All I want for Christmas is a new coaching staff and a top 5 draft pick. Bye-bye tom, thank you for the memories! Time for change.

  10.  Krow says:

    I’m going to miss Nicks. He was huge for us. I can’t tell if injuries have robbed him of his skills. Or if the whole contract thing just got into his head. But damn, when he was playing well he was awesome. No Nicks no 2011 Superbowl. Wherever he goes I’ll still be grateful for that stretch where he carried us to a championship. Good luck Hakeem.

    •  buljos says:

      I don’t know how many times I’ve watched that YouTube best of Nicks… amazing talent. Will always appreciate his time with the Giants. But wherever Hakeem goes he needs to get that step back for a while… bum knee, foot, whatever. He never had to sell speed, because his strength, smarts, and fantastic hands overcame his 4.63 combine 40. But throw in a bum knee or foot, and I’m of the opinion #1 WRs can’t be slowed to 4.7 range… even if he can get separation he gives up too much defender closing speed. Good luck to him wherever he ends up.
