Not buying. Phillips lost control of the team, true. But they did not quit on effort.

This is NOT the NBA or MLB where player contracts are guaranteed. Where "tanking it" or "mailing it in" for better draft position are common. And that slogan from last year attached to the Colts (Suck for Luck) is a load of crap. Each players future for the next season is linked directly to their effort and output on the field.

Say or think what you want. But mailing it in during the season is a bunch of crap.

If you want to say a team mails it in yes - bunk. Always going to be ones that give it their all. Alvin Walton nailed it with Haynesworth - if he didnt mail it in i dont post alot. Unfortunately if a couple guys mail it in than it might as well be the whole team. Whats that they say about a team is only as strong as its collective pieces - or a whole is only - whatever - u get my point.

It's the same knee jerk reaction on this fanbase's part. What happened to all our talk of "patience" and that Shanny would get his 5 years? Are fans thinking we just say those things and still get instant gratification in two and a half seasons?

Jee, I was comparing the fanbases. Not the teams. The same idiotic knee jerk reaction by both fanbases.

Even though circumstances do prove the Giants fans are stupider. (big surprise there, lol). What's imbecilic is under an ownership constantly turning over our coaching staff (except one occasion when a legend came back), fans here want to start up the coaching carousel again.

If the Giants owner had listened to the same screaming from NJ fans in '07 and '11, they wouldn't have won those superbowls. That's all I'm saying.

True.

(OMG I feel like an Obama supporter saying this. Curse you. lol) There was too much of a mess for anybody to clean up that quick, give Shanny at least his original deal.

(Hell, we gave Obama a pass for the past 4 years and relected him for another 4, let's give Shanny his original 5. )

Re: Has the team mailed it in? (If so, why?)

Shanahan set himself back two years with really bad decisions to go with Grossman/Beck and then McNabb. Thats a mess he created himself.
I dont want a mess maker for a head coach. I want a win maker.

McNabb I can understand. I don't see how he set himself back with Grossman/Beck. What would have the better choice been? Draft Gabbert or Ponder and not get guys like Kerrigan? Sign Hasselbeck and still have to get a QB this year?
