New York Giants don’t consider Week 4 a ‘must-win’


The New York Giants suffered an embarrassing loss against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 to fall to 0-3 on the season, and this week the team will travel to Arrowhead Stadium where they will take on the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs.

While the Giants have looked like the worst team in New York throughout the beginning of the season, head coach Tom Coughlin is not ready to press the panic button and he doesn’t view this week’s game in Kansas City as a must-win.

“I think it’s a long season,” Coughlin said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “We’ve played three games. We have a lot of games to go. Certainly, we want to win, and that’s our entire objective. Are we standing on the edge of the cliff? I don’t look at it that way. I see a lot of football to play.”

Unfortunately for Coughlin and his team, it may just be that.

The Dallas Cowboys have looked very impressive throughout the first three weeks and they could begin to pull away in the NFC East, while an 0-4 hole could also be too much to overcome in the difficult NFC.

Is this week a must-win for the Giants? Sound off in the comments section below and share your thoughts.

    I remember Romeo Crennel saying something similar last year when the Chiefs were 0-terrible early int he season.

    Can’t recall how it worked out.

    Now I’m worried. It’s true. It’s not a MUST win. It’s a ” you HAVE TO WIN” game. Please. I love my Giants and I’m shocked at the 0-3 start. But pleeeeeease tell them to shut the fuck up and win a fucking game. All I see is talk talk talk. New concept. STFU

    I saw this article again…..I still can’t believe a team says at 0-3. It’s not a must win for game 4. I don’t like coughlins comments. Fire him now. He’s old. Love my giants. Don’t need this kinda talk.
