Same as it ever was.....PERSPECTIVE


Hey All,


Given the fact I, like many of my fellow Giants fans, are walking around as if someone shot our dogs, I thought it might be a good time to take a step back in search of some perspective.

In 1962, the Giants experienced the following bad streaks…

Lost 6 of 8 (5/17-5/23)
Lost 12 of 16 (6/6-6/22)
Lost 4 of 5 (7/27-8/3)
Lost 6 of 7 (8/15-8/22)
Lost 6 in a row, and 8 of 10 (9/12-9/22)

In 1993, the Giants…

Had 3 separate 3 game losing streaks
AND
Lost 15 of 20 (8/23-9/15)

In 2003, the Giants…

Lost 5 of 6 (4/26-5/2)
Lost 5 in a row and 8 of 10 (5/10-5/19)
Lost 5 of 7 (6/15-6/22)
Lost 5 of 7 (7/26-8/2)
Lost 7 of 8 (8/9-8/18)

Thus far in 2014, the Giants…

Lost 4 of 6 (4/16-4/12)
Lost 5 of 6 (4/17-4/22)
Lost 7 of 8 (6/9-6/17)

So…aside from the 1993 squad, the 100 win Giants teams have ALL consistently experienced losing streaks of some length…and the 1993 club lost 15 of 20 at one point.

My point being that the 2014 club is doing exactly what every other 100 win SF club has done..including losing games in streaks.

So onward and upward, Giants fans! And go Huddy! The Giants need to end this losing streak!

You are right about it being tough to keep perspective during the low points. You start to question if the real team is the current one amidst the losing streak.

A couple of wins and a reminder they still have a good record and this kid will rest easy against.
