Thank you! Oddly enough the writers at Packers.com aren't talking about it too much now but that is where I got my info, they were worried about the Giants.

Theirs was based on game knowledge, playoff situations, mine on last year. Pack got hot beating the Giants, going on to win their final game against the Bears and tearing through the playoffs. Once we beat the Giants (barely) and they won all their final games, I got worried (with good reason)!

OK, thanks for letting me hang out, I feel better now!

I have to say as recently as the Redskins loss, I thought this team was mediocre, at best. When they lost at home to the Redskins, (same happened by the way in the 2007 SB season) I thought it was 'season over'. Had Hakeem Nicks caught that wide open pass for a TD instead of dropping it, who knows what the outcome would be. However, the team went into the tank after that play, and I thought I was looking at a baked football team. Who could have imagined the following week this team began their springboard against the Jets? The 99 yard Victor Cruz catch and run may have ultimately turned their season around.

Yep, I think the Cruz play, coupled with the fact that Rex Ryan had run his mouth about how great the Jets were compared to the Giants. I think that really motivated the G-Men...

If the Giants can get past the 49ers, I think it will come at a cost. There's bound to be a key injury since these are two very physical teams. That said, I'm really hoping for a Giants/Ravens rematch. For one thing, I feel this Giants team can soundly defeat Baltimore. I also don't think the Giants can beat the Pats for a third time this season, and I would dread a Giants loss to the Pats over any other team. Especially now since I live in New England. As much as I can't stand Baltimore either, I'll be cheering them on regardless this weekend.

Giants will win and prove again why they are better than the Pats in the Superbowl.......My team (Cowboys) may not be there, but NY can represent the NFC EAST just fine in the Super Bowl.....

I just watched the Giants/niners game on Nov 13th on the NFLN and the Giants lost this game because of

1. Turnovers
2. Bad Play calling


I see no reason why they can't win this game if they don't turn over the ball tomorrow. Eli was able to pass the ball with ease and did not get pressured that much. Also it was 2nd and 2 with 1:25 left on the 7 yd line and instead of running, the Giants passed to the endzone on 2nd and 2. Then on 3rd and 2 they tried to run and got stopped leading to the batted pas on 4th and 2.


So I would be stunned if the Giants loss

Giants 31
Niners 14

To your point, I think DJ Ware was in the game there, since Bradshaw was injured. I just do not like how Ware runs.

That was such a bad call. If they just run and get the first down the game would have went into OT atleast and maybe they come out with a victory.

95% of the time when a team gains 8yds on 1st down, the next play on 2nd down is always a run. And what was the rush? If they had got that TD on 2nd and 2 then the niners would have had a minute and some change to go down and kick a akers winning FG.


That is the type of stuff that Offensive Coordinator should be fired for, ridiculous
