Why? Let's start with quarterback Trevor Siemian, who continues to do stupid things under pressure, like throw hope-destroying pick-sixes at the worst possible moments. Next, there's the vaunted defense's inability to stop the Giants' running game even though anyone with a double-digit IQ knew Eli Manning and company would stick to the ground game following injuries to pretty much the entire New York receiving corps, including superstar Odell Beckham Jr. And don't forget field-goal kicker Brandon McManus, who seemingly lost the ability to make even routine boots the second he inked his name to an enormous new contract a few weeks back.
We could go on, but that would only compound the pain. Wound, meet salt.
Granted, a few football prognosticators warned that the Giants game wouldn't be a cakewalk — notably recent Westword interview subject Alfred Williams and Brandon Stokley, Big Al's colleague on The Fan. But the vast majority of supposed experts made the mistake of forgetting history. Today, they'll have a lot of ’splainin' to do.
As for Twitter-using fans, they're flat-out livid. As you'll see, each of the twenty tweets below has at least one F-words — and one boasts eight. Bombs away.
