A couple of former Giants in Lawrence Tynes and Carl Banks called out the current players for their lack of responsibility after a 1-6 start.
Blame for the Giants' dismal start to the season as been pointed in every direction from GM Jerry Reese to head coach Ben McAdoo. But Tynes believes that it is just an excuse to put blame on the people that aren't playing the game on the field. He sent out a tweet urging the current Giants to look at themselves and make a change.
GM's fault, Coaches fault. Typical responses from losers, look in the damn mirror! Dust yourself off/play for the man next to you. It works- Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) November 1, 2017
Banks chimed in with his own tweet that points reference to players like Janoris Jenkins, who was just suspended for a violation of team rules.
I'm gonna put this out there to you @Giants players.. Your Teammates deserve your best in adverse times.. Show up and GIVE A DAMN- Carl Banks (@CarlBanksGIII) October 31, 2017
Along with Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended for violating team rules after an incident that saw him leave the Giants facility, and even go as far as cleaning out his locker. Eli Apple also had an incident on the sideline earlier this season that forced McAdoo to bench him at the start of a game.
Both two-time Super Bowl champions, Tynes played with the Giants from 2007 to 2012. Banks, who played with the Giants from 1984-1992, still is involved with the team serving as an analyst for the team's radio broadcasts on WFAN.
