At the end of the day, Giants fans have to tell themselves that this is pretty much what they expected out of this season. After a 31-7 loss to the Redskins, the Giants have now lost five games in a row and Gothamist feels like we wasted our last Sunday on this unwatchable team.

7 first downs? 1 of 9 on third down? 145 total yards? New York’s offensive player of the game? Amani Toomer with 2 catches for 59 yards. Terrible.

Clinton Portis totally overwhelmed the Giants defense, rushing for 174 yards and three touchdowns, while Tiki Barber was held to only 38 yards. Portis walked of the field wearing a championship belt proclaiming his 4-8 team the champions of we don’t know what. He also wore red socks rather than the standard issue white socks because, “If you're not looking sweet, you really can't play too sweet.” Thanks for that Clinton.

We thought that Eli Manning was going to come out and have a good game, but you know what? We were wrong. Again. Anyway the Giants schedule gives them Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Dallas to finish the season and they could easily lose all those games. So we can look forward to that. Actually, if they lost all those games, maybe we could look forward to another high draft pick.
