The New York Giants(2-10) continued their losing ways on Sunday. In the snow at MetLife Stadium, Giants rookie QB Daniel Jones would throw three interceptions, and the Giants’ defense allowed Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to throw four touchdown passes, as Green Bay defeated the Giants 31-13.
New York has now lost eight straight games, and they have not tasted victory since September. When that happens, the fans become indifferent. As we know, the Packers have a lot of fans around the country that travel to opposing stadiums to cheer on their team, which was the case against the Giants. At times on Sunday, we heard the “Go Pack Go” chants, which Giants RB Saquon Barkley heard loud and clear.
“Yeah, that sucks,” Barkley said about hearing the chants. “We’re 2-10 right now, you kind of expect it, I guess. They are a playoff team; they are a great team. I’ve never played at Green Bay, but you hear about the great fans they have. Kudos to them, we just have to play better.”
Even though things look bleak for the Giants, Barkley continues to believe that better days are coming.
“I know I sound like a broken record, but I promise when this thing turns around, I’m going to sound like a genius,” Barkley said. “We have to continue to keep working. Even though our record is 2-10, you have to come into the building like you are 10-2. That can’t change; your attitude can’t change; your work ethic can’t change. I talked to these guys, and we have to keep fighting, there’s better days ahead.
“I know I sound like a broken record, and everyone is probably going to roll their eyes, saying here he goes again, but when it happens, it’s going to be a beautiful thing.”
When you have a season like the Giants are having in 2019, things can only get better. While both Barkley and Jones are struggling right now, the future appears bright for both players. Hopefully, that means better day are on their way in New York City!
