Although most of us like to discuss QBs, RBs and WRs, the way the Giants played last night, while unappealing, is how teams ultimately win championships. If you rush the QB consistently, and blow up a running game early, you will win 10 games out of 10. You can have Trent Dilfer operating your offense (see 2000 Ravens) or Jim McMahon (1985 Bears) and you'll still win. That, plus superior offensive line play.

That was their recipe for success throughout the playoffs and Superbowl in 2007, not sure why they abandoned it, but hopefully they'll stick with the pass rush and pressure on the QB. They proved that even with greats like Favre and Brady at the helm you can still beat them if you control the line. Not the prettiest offensive performance on Sunday, but I'll take it!

I am here, jubilant, but a little reserved right now. In spite of the final score, let's face it, when you have a 2-1 ratio of yards gained from scrimmage, you can overcome 5 turnovers. That said, the Giants were able to show resilency. Here's a really key play: the Giants were "Mike Tyson'ed" on the first two drives, and it is at this point where good teams can stablize a game. The Giants were able to scratch out two first downs, and then the really big play, seemingly insignificant at the time: Hakeem Nicks comes down with a deflected pass on the sidelines on third and five. The play is initially ruled out of bounds, then is overruled on Coughlin's challenge. The Giants eventually pull it to 10-7. Although the Cowboys briefly re-established momentum with the punt return TD, the Giants were able to turn the momentum on the line of scrimmage play from that point forward. I think it all originated from the first successful TD drive.

The good continues to be the pass rush. The Giants have 3 interior lineman that establish penetration, and do not allow RBs real estate, and this really started in the Tennessee game they lost. The O line, too, looks especially dominant on run blocking. The bad is that the Giants do not take care of the ball. And, though they have been able to play above a negative turnover margin in the last 4 games, that will not continue when you are playing in adverse conditions in bad weather in December, and into January, if they are fortunate enough to get to the post-season.

As an aside, I think Jon Gruden might have come up with one of the single funniest lines I've heard of, in-game, when after Brandon Jacobs basically broke through 3 alligator arm tackles: "And the free safety Alan Ball, number 21, that looked like a business decision", this after he was fighting off a downfield block and basically crumpled instead of taking on the play.

It's safe to say after this showing the Giants are going to be there with the Saints, Falcons, Eagles, and possibly Packers at season's end as the teams with the best chance to be the NFC representative for SB XLV. If the Giants capture the #1 seed, they will be tough to beat in their own stadium. The Giants, however, have always fallen prey to teams with superior quarterbacking, and I wouldn't give them a chance on the road against the Saints, in the playoffs. The other teams, however, are all beatable.
