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.

Just hours after telling his team to worry more about themselves than him, the 68-year-old Coughlin once again accepted responsibility for a season that has seen the Giants (3-9) repeatedly fail to make the plays when it counted.

In blowing a 21-point lead to the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars (2-10), the Giants had two fumbles returned for second-half touchdowns and saw the defense give up a late score to lose 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.
