EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Casey Cizikas Jersey .J. - Tom Coughlin is refusing to discuss his future as the coach of the New York Giants after a seventh straight loss that he acknowledges has made him feel miserable.The 68-year-old said the skid has not in the least taken away his belief that he can lead the team, although he refused to say whether he would return if the Giants told him they wanted him to return for the final year of his contract.Dont start that stuff, said Coughlin, who led the Giants to Super Bowls victories after the 2007 and 11 seasons.I am not interested ... this thing is not about me. I am not interested in discussing my circumstances whatsoever. I am not worried or concerned. I am worried about my team as I said.The season may have hit rock bottom on Sunday when the Giants (3-9) blew a 21-point lead against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars (2-10) and dropped a 25-24 decision.New York had two fumbles returned for second-half touchdowns and saw the defence give up a late score for the second week in a row.With four games left in the regular season, the Giants are assured of their second straight losing season and third year in a row out of the playoffs.Coughlin said he has never experienced a run like this in his career. The past three games have been very frustrating. The Giants have been in position to beat San Francisco, Dallas and Jacksonville and failed to make the plays with the game on the line. Its been a common thread in this season marked by injuries.In meeting with his players Monday, Coughlin told them to worry more about themselves than him.As far as his critics, the long-time coach is ignoring them.I try to pay attention and do the job to best of my ability and my concern is with my coaches and my team, Coughlin said. Our organization, everybody in the Giants organization, lives and dies with how this football team does. I understand that completely and the responsibility that I have my coaches and players and to our owners, we are going to work our every-loving (butts) off to try to find a way to win a game. Thats all at this point in time that we can do.Quarterback Eli Manning, who lost one of the fumbles Sunday that was either recovered or returned for a touchdown, said Coughlin is not to blame for the Giants woes. He said the team is still playing hard and has been close to winning.Its not his fault that we dont finish games, Manning said.The Giants will try to end their misery on Sunday when they travel to Tennessee to play the Titans (2-10), the losers of six in a row.Coughlin said the team needs to stick together.We are being tested, perhaps, like we have never been tested before, Coughlin said. I have some young guys in the room that have never been through anything like I am sure. I referred to them and I referred to the old guy standing in the front of the room talking who has never been through anything like this.Coughlins advice was to stand tall, to be positive talking about teammates and to approach everything with character and integrity.When asked how the losing made him feel, Coughlin was blunt about the skid that is the Giants longest since losing eight straight in 2004, Coughlins first year as coach of the team.Miserable, he said. What else can I say, but I am not going to let it get me down.The 3-9 record is the Giants worst after 12 games since 1995, when they had the same mark.Linebacker Jameel McClain said its frustrating to be in position to win and not do it.Whether were up by 21 or down by 21, I still want to finish it all strong if thats even possible for you all to believe, he said. We just havent finished, so that is frustrating, not finishing.NOTES: Coughlin had no updates on injuries to OT Geoff Schwartz (ankle), OT James Brewer (concussion) and RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) and DE Robert Ayers (pectoral). ... OT Justin Pugh (quad) is expected to return this week after missing two weeks with his injury.___AP NFL website: and Scott Mayfield Jersey . The league announced Thursday that Tom Higgins is leaving that post effective immediately. Shane Prince Jersey .com) - The collective hearts of Chicago Bulls fans sank on Friday night when Derrick Rose went down with a leg injury against the Cleveland Cavaliers. .3 seconds remaining, and No. 7 North Carolina held off a resilient No. 25 Virginia team, 54-51, on Saturday. John Henson contributed a double-double with 15 points to go with 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (25-4, 12-2 ACC), who have won five straight and 10 of 11.RALEIGH, N.C. -- George Washington kept hanging around, refusing to let Memphis pull too far ahead. The Colonials just couldnt come up with the one shot they needed to prolong their first NCAA tournament visit in seven years. Isaiah Armwood scored a season-high 21 points in ninth-seeded GWs 71-66 loss to eighth-seeded Memphis in the second round of the East Regional. Armwood picked up his fourth foul with 12:02 remaining for GW (24-9), which was just 2 of 12 from 3-point range yet never fell behind by more than 10 points. "It definitely changed my defence, because when Im on defence, Im usually active. I couldnt foul," Armwood said. "It definitely hurt us because I gave up some layups that I dont usually give up." Leading scorer Maurice Creek -- who averages 14 points -- finished with nine on 2-of-13 shooting for GW, but he airballed a 3-pointer in the final seconds that would have tied it. Michael Dixon Jr., the top sixth man in the American Athletic Conference, scored 19 points and hit four free throws in the final 10 seconds for Memphis, which never trailed. Joe Jackson added 15 points for the eighth-seeded Tigers (24-9), who are halfway to Geron Johnsons post-AAC tournament guarantee of two wins in the first weekend of the NCAAs. "As long as we think big and we play hard, the skys the limit," Jackson said. "Weve just got to continue to think that we can get there. Weve got to know we can get there." They entered the tournament having lost three of five to fall out of the national rankings, and shot 49 per cent in this one but struggled to put GW away until the final seconds. Patricio Garino added 10 points for the Colonials, who were making their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2007 and hung around all game before making a final late push. They had the ball down 67-64 after Jackson threw the ball away with 1:16 left. But Creeks jumper in the lane was short and so was Nemanja Mikics 3-point attempt from the right wing with lesss than a minute remaining. Denis Potvin Jersey. "I think if we would have tied it, the momentum was sort of shifting and maybe we would have tied it, had some time outs and things wouldve been different," GW coach Mike Lonergan said. Crawford missed a 3 for Memphis with about 30 seconds left and the rebound went out of bounds off Jackson with 26.6 seconds left. Joe McDonald beat Crawford off the dribble for a layup to make it 67-66 with 13.6 seconds left, and the Colonials fouled Dixon with 9.6 seconds left. Dixon hit both free throws and the Colonials called a timeout to set up their final possession. McDonald dribbled a few seconds off the clock before passing to Creek, whose final 3-pointer with about 3 seconds left left failed to draw iron. "A shot I usually hit," said Creek, a 41 per cent shooter from 3-point range. Dixon added two more free throws with 0.4 of a second remaining for Memphis, which could never push its lead past 10. Its last big lead came on Dixons jumper from the corner with 9 1/2 minutes left. Creek hit a 3-pointer -- GWs second, and last, of the game -- before GWs 1-3-1 zone forced a turnover and Garino made a layup to make it a 64-62 game with 2 1/2 minutes left. Out of a timeout, Memphis worked the ball to Dixon -- who buried an open 3-pointer from the right wing and kept his shooting hand aloft for an extra moment. At the time, that seemed like the dagger -- but the Colonials kept scrapping. "They made a run at the end," Dixon said, "but we never got flustered or rattled." Both teams werent especially good behind either line on the court: Memphis was 11 of 16 from the free throw line and hit just 27 per cent of its 3-point attempts, while GW was 14 of 24 from the free throw line in addition to its poor 3-point shooting. "Theyve got a good inside-out punch," Jackson said. "Fortunately, we kind of stopped them from shooting 3s because it probably would have been a long night for us."
