03:53 PM ET 10.25 | The New York Giants punt coverage has been flat-out terrible this season, and the result has been three punt return touchdowns against the team. To put things into perspective, the other 31 teams in the NFL have totaled just four punt return touchdowns, so the Giants are doing something wrong. No matter what the issue may be, Giants special teams coach Tom Quinn is hoping that the team can find an answer, because right now he is embarrassed by how his punting unit has performed. If the Giants don't stop leaving the lanes open for punt returners to take it to the house against them, they won't be enjoying victory many more times this year.

When you are punting as often as the NYG, some are coming back. Try punting less, G-men.

One possible answer is to fire the special teams coach.

I don't think that's the answer Tom Quinn has in mind.

So go for it on 4th & forever and turn the ball over on downs?Got it ;)

Hey Rex, ever thought I might be suggesting just play better and not be in 4th down position after your first 3 downs every series... Like convert some 3rd's?

T'is a group effort. My problem with it all is this: Special teams are comprised mostly of your back ups. Well, if you are a back up on a lousy team AND you cannot do your job on special teams, then WHY are you on the team at all?
