Some postgame reactions by the Giants after their 24-17 opening night loss to the Dallas Cowboys:

"Take a bite out of humble pie is basically what it is. It brings you right back to earth. There won?t be any blowing smoke up their rear ends as far as that. Last year is last year and this year is this year. Every team is a new team, every year is a new year, we have our work cut out for us, it?s a great challenge for us now. I think?Michael Coe?injured a hamstring again, so there is another corner we?re staring at being down. But we?ve rubbed salt in it right now and I think that hopefully the competitive nature of our guys comes out and we come out swinging." - head coach Tom Coughlin on his postgame message to the team

"Just to be a little bit more crisp in what we are doing, what we are representing. Understand what is going to be thrown at us. Understand that we have to capture opportunities when they present themselves. And we will get better, we will get better. Practice will be a little bit more crisp, a little bit more focused, a little more sharp. You know, we?ll do that." - Safety Antrel Rolle on Coughlin's postgame message

Throughout the summer, New York Giants? head coach Tom Coughlin encouraged his team to ?Build A Bridge? to last year, when it was about being ?All In? and making sure to ?Finish.?

Forget finishing, the Giants (0-1) couldn?t even start well, while allowing their underdog and hated NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys (1-0) to waltz into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford and walk away with a season-opening 24-17 upset victory.
