Giants’ Glimpse Of Life Without Landon Collins Was Scary

POSTED BY: LANDON COLLINS in NEWS

Big plays missed and made against the Giants. Big injuries. That sums up the Giants season.

That’s how you become 2-11, and safety Landon Collins was the latest Giants star knocked out of action Sunday in the 30-10 loss to the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium.

Collins suffered a sprained left ankle on Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley’s 54-yard catch and run in the fourth quarter with the game tied at 10-10.

There are no mild injuries for the Giants, bad teams find a way to come up with bad injuries. And this was the same ankle Collins injured earlier in the season.

“When I landed,’’ Collins said of the play, “I guess I turned a different way and my body went over my foot, something tweaked, I guess.’’

It all goes hand in hand. When Collins was asked how the Giants went from one of the best defenses to the mess they have become, he answered, “Injuries.’’

As for the complete collapse in the fourth quarter, another sign of a bad team, he had no explanation, saying, “That happened quickly. I didn’t watch the rest of the game after I got hurt, I walked inside. For myself, not being on the field to help my guys make plays, yeah it frustrates me.’’

This has been an emotional two weeks for all the Giants because of the benching of Eli Manning and the firing of Ben McAdoo and the naming of defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo as interim head coach. Spagnuolo fell on his sword after the game, taking blame for the defensive mistakes, but Collins stood up for his coach, saying, “We have to execute [those defensive calls]. Whatever call he makes on the field and make the best of it. From that standpoint it goes both ends.’’

As for Manning, Collins said, “Everybody loves Eli. I love him, too. He did his thing out there and defensively we couldn’t finish for him.’’

The Giants have been finished for a while, and it’s not just because of injuries.
