Giants CB Thomas: Some teammates 'don't care' about 0-6 start

The Giants' slow-motion train wreck enters its seventh week following Thursday's 27-21 loss to the Bears. And despite safety Antrel Rolle's proclamation that New York could win out, the reality is that this is one of the worst teams in the league.

Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas says being 0-6 has weighed heavily on him but admits that not all his teammates are as angry as he is about the winless start.

"I think some are, I think some don't care," Thomas said Friday, via the New York Daily News. … "Everybody’s different," he continued. "Some people can lose a game and go about their day very easily. Others can't sleep that night. I'm one of those guys. I got home at 4:30, probably didn't go to sleep until about 6. I was just laying in bed."

The problems are many for the Giants -- the offensive line, the running game, the franchise quarterback, the pass rush, the secondary … pretty much all phases, which Thomas readily concedes.

"When you're 0-6 it's everything," he said. "It's the coaches. It's the players. It's team harmony. All that effort ... that don't matter. We’re professionals. That comes naturally. It's the game we’re paid for. But right now our jobs are on the line so we better bring the effort. The coaches better coach hard. They better put us in better situations. The players have to make plays. That's how we’re looking at it. That's how it's going to be around here."

If the Giants are going to salvage their dignity, the next three games provide a great opportunity. They'll face the Vikings on Monday night in Week 7, the Eagles six days later, and then the Raiders following their Week 9 bye. Of course, when you're 0 for 2013, there aren't any gimme wins on the schedule because, well, you are the weekly homecoming opponent.
