At 0-5, the New York Giants are the laughingstock of the NFL and the social media posts have been absolutely ruthless.

Fortunately, the New York media seems to be holding it together quite well ...
When will it get better for the G-Men? Their upcoming schedule has a number of difficult matchups looming, outside of a possible showdown of winless teams in San Francisco.
