At the half, the New York Giants are being throttled by the division rival Eagles in what has been one of the most pathetic performances in football this season. Eli Manning didn't throw a pass farther than two yards until the second quarter, Pat Shurmur appeared to have a bit of a breakdown, and now this:

Odell has certainly built a reputation as being a bit of a diva, but this goes beyond Odell's personality and shows something deeper: the Giants have lost faith in themselves and Manning.

With the Giants looking like they'll start the season with a record of 1-5, these issues will only get worse. The team chemistry has been eroding, and unfortunately for Giants fans, that means the only thing there is to look forward to is the beginning of next season.
