New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall wants to focus on the future, so he won’t talk about September – a month that saw the Giants lose all four games they played.
“I don’t want to spend my time talking about what we did in Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4,” Marshall said, per John Healy of the New York Daily News. “If we do that we’re not going to get out of the hole that we’ve dug. I’m moving on. So I respectfully decline any questions about culture, any questions about our losing streak, my play – my play hasn’t been where I wanted it to be, I need to pick it up – but I’m not going to waste time talking about a losing environment.”
Digging out of that hole may be harder than he thinks. The Giants play the Los Angeles Chargers, who are also 0-4, on Sunday. In NFL history, just a single 0-4 team has dug themselves out of that hole and made the playoffs. That team was the Chargers, back in 1992.
Even so, facing those odds, the Giants seem to have adopted the comeback mantra. Marshall’s comments echo those made by quarterback Eli Manning.
“I still think we’re a good team,” Manning said, per James Kratch of NJ.com. “We’re playing pretty good football, but we’re not playing great football. There’s not many mistakes being made. Guys are doing the right things. We’ve just got to do it better. We’ve got to get that first win, and you go from there. You never know what can happen. We still feel like we’re a good team that can win a lot of games. Let’s make history and be the second team. That’s the only thing we can worry about. Let’s give ourselves a chance. No one know what’s going to happen, but if we don’t start winning soon, we will know what’s going to happen.”
