Yes, last home playoff win was over Vikings, 41-0.

I really wanted the Giants to win the SB that year because that was the season that Jim Fassel made the gaurantee and that would have been a great story if they had won it all.

They felt short because they ran into a tough ravens team

I still think Hicks and Cruz are way overrated, so it'll be interesting to see how they match up against GB's secondary. The Giants are playing as a unit and their running game never really reflected the stats. I still give it to GB though. It's their homefield, their weather and they've been paying attention to the Giants so they won't be caught off guard.

Either way, it would be a true miracle for them to get win the SB. Chances are they'd have to GB, NO, and the Pats (assuming they all win their next games). The only benefit that anyone has is that they did it before.

Nicks and Cruz are overrated? Why?

As per the miracle thing remember...hot teams win now in the NFL during the playoffs. Teams are proving that year after year. ...its the MOST important thing....

I watch the GIants every week. They either show up or completely dissapear. I give them credit because the last few games they've stepped it up, but I think GB's secondary will be too much for them. The only team worth noting that they beat all season were the Pats.


I wouldn't completely count them out though.

Cruz disappears? When? Nicks yes. Sure GB will be tough but remember GB cant stop the run either. Expect ball control to be the key..not as much Cruz or Nicks...

I think the challenge will be to match them point for point. Like Detroit and the Saints, depending on your defense to hold them is almost unrealistic. The Giants will simply have to put up 7 points in every red zone opportunity.

Somehow dont think this game is going to be as high scoring as you think. If Ross plays ...does anyone know a status? That d is clicking right now..Sure GB will put up points but its not going to be a 40-30 game. More like 27-30 wins it. BALL CONTROL..move the chains, the Giants rushing game is back again..I'm telling you GB won't handle it unless they stack 8 deep, then they run the risk of the WR's beating them.
