3 takeaways from Giants' Week 8 loss to Lions

The New York Giants fell to 2-6 on the season after a disappointing 31-26 loss to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday.

Here are three takeaways from the latest loss (which is beginning to feel like a broken record):

The new culture isn’t much different than the old one

General manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur preached about changing the culture here. At 2-6, they are still a doormat and all that’s changed are a lot of the faces. Since the two men took the helm of this team, their record is a deflating 7-17.

The losing has permeated the foundation of this team, especially for the players who have been here for more than the past two seasons. They called a players-only meeting for Monday. In my experience, players-only meetings are a signal that the coaching staff isn’t getting the job done.

“Everybody is accountable,” defensive captain Alec Ogletree said. “But it’s just about making sure we’re doing the right things all the time.”

“We’re all frustrated,” said rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. “I think it’s tough losing games like this, and we know we’ve got to play better, we’ve got to make more plays. But, we’re certainly frustrated, but like last week, we’re not going to let it affect our preparation into this week. We’re not discouraged, and we are going to make sure that like I said, it doesn’t affect our preparation, and we attack this opportunity next week.”
