<p>The Giants started the season 5-0 and visions of another Super Bowl victory danced in their fans’ heads. But from there, the season completely imploded. A thrashing at the hands of the Saints started the carnage and three more losses knocked them to 5-4. The recovered during their bye week and won a big game against Atlanta, but a Thanksgiving debacle at Denver was a harbinger of things to come. They won some more, they lost some more, but when they had to win their last game at Giants Stadium to stay in the playoff picture, they suffered one of the <a href="http://gothamist.com/2009/12/28/last_nights_action_touchable.php">most humiliating defeats</a> in team history. There will be a lot of changes in the coaching staff and roster before next season starts, but the sting of this implosion will take a long time to wear off. <i>- Peter Trinkle</i></p>
