Being mad I understand. I'm pissed and dissappointed. But don't completely lose faith in the team over this. You have to make plays to win and that is why we lost by a wide margin. Did anyone really get the impression that the Giants are that much better than us? I didn't.
Every pass that Alex threw that the Giants had a legit chance to catch was picked. The Rogers potential INT on the 10 yard line was VERY likely to go 90 yards the other way and create a 10 point swing on the scoreboard and a huge amount of momentum. Tarell Brown also dropped a pass right in his hands. Akers missed 2 FGs and if he even makes one of those we are pressing so much. Every niner penalty created a really bad situation for us. The game could have been much different if we just don't play awful, just unforced errors that have nothing to do with the Giants and everything to do with us. I'm not saying the Giants don't deserve to win - they played better than us today. But we played uncharacteristically bad in 2 games this year. We looked like the best team in the league the other 4 weeks. What are we really? We don't know yet but I think it is closer to the team that we were in the wins than the losses.
At least we get a game on Thursday and don't have to wait long to get the bad taste out of our mouths. Beat Seattle and we are still in great shape to win the division and really still in the drivers seat to get a bye in the first round of the playoffs which is the biggest thing we need. With any team capable of beating any other team on any given week, the less games you have to play the less games it takes to win it all. Which is still a very reachable goal for this team.

All you guys talked WAAAAY too much smack all week long.
You never gave The Champs the respect they deserved. They did not like that.
i'm upset but evertything I didn't like about us cost us. Smith scared to pull the trigger past 5 yards unless forced to. Inaccurate when he does. and CB's not making plays and playing bend but don't break which can't work versus the Giants to a point. Our DB's has to make as many plays as their WR's which didn't happen.
I'm resigned to the fact that Smith will never be that downfield(10+ yards) kind of guy. Other than an occasional 2-3 games. But our secondary has to be more aggressive.
This is the 2nd game this year where we were out-coached, game-planned, executed, played, intensity, etc. But it's also the 2nd game where everything, I mean EVERYTHING went against us and in the heavy favor of the opposition. The Giants are a VERY good team and play up to big games.
My bigger question is:
Did a single Niner have a good game today? One? This is a serious question...
