New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin — who led his team to a Super Bowl victory last February — is absolutely distraught over missing the playoffs.

“I can’t even describe how it hurts. I don’t know what to do, ” Coughlin told WFAN’s Mike Francesa. “I’m walking around here like a crazy man. I am. I don’t know what to do with myself. We shouldn’t be doing this right now. The pain of it is almost indescribable.”

The Giants finished the season 9-7. They failed to make the playoffs after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles in a 42-7 blowout. The Chicago Bears’ win over Detroit eliminated the Giants last Sunday.

“When you have things in your grasp — and our team has developed a reputation for playing well under those circumstances — and I think that’s what’s so frustrating for you and for everyone else who follows our team so closely,” Coughlin said. “’OK, they’ve got the thing set, the table is set for the Giants, this is where they normally step up and play extremely well.’ … But we’re taking it all apart right now as a coaching staff, and hopefully we can provide some answers.”

Coughlin is desperate for answers. He’s trying to understand how his team went from 6-2 to 9-7.

“For us, right now, to not be in the playoffs — to be the Super Bowl champion and not be in the playoffs —I f that doesn’t bring you down to earth and create the kind of humility that comes along with getting your nose back to the grindstone, I don’t know what does.”

Tom Coughlin is trying to figure it all out. Meantime, NY Jets head coach Rex Ryan is vacationing in the Bahamas following his team’s disastrous season.

Two teams that share the same stadium have coaches that are light years apart in their approach to the game.

Adorable Kitten Battles A Menacing, Spinning Garbage Lid (Video)

I’m trying to figure out the best way to describe what this kitten looks like. I initially thought “Godzilla attacking a city.” Then I shifted more to “drunk guy puking into a trashcan.” Then it became “a toddler playing with a trashcan.” But, at the end of the day, the only way to describe this […]

The Pain Of Being In Love With Someone You Can Never Be With

Love is a tricky thing. It varies in intensity and in the specificity of emotions. It is sometimes the most beautiful thing in the world and, at other times, it’s the most horrid thing we’ve ever come face-to-face with. It’s odd how one thing could be the cause of so many contrary feelings. But that’s […]
