His offense in shambles his offensive line in disarray his quarterback black and blue Kevin Gilbride understands the mandate: fix it. And fix it now.

No pity parties will be thrown for the 0-3 New York Football Giants as they limp into Arrowhead Stadium to confront the 3-0 Chiefs. No excuses will be accepted. If John Mara has to play right guard and Steve Tisch has to play center so be it. Everyone remember was on notice when the season started and it is certainly no different now at the Quest Diagnostics Crisis Center.

Gilbride has been with Coughlin right from the start and he admitted Thursday that it has been 10 years since he has had to face a stretch this difficult or challenging in the wake of Carolina 38 Giants 0.

“Oh there’s no question. We went through a tough time our first year here when we made the decision to part with the Kurt Warner Era and go into the Eli Manning Era but you understood there was going to be growing pains and there were there were” Gilbride said.

“Now it’s not the quarterback position or receiver but there’s some other spots the backs and the line are going through some growing pains as well so it’s never pleasant. But the good thing is we’re working at it and I think no one’s quitting they’ve hung together they’re doing all those things right and you hope it pays off.”
