For me, it had to be aboutPerry Fewell. When he was hired to replace Sheridan, I was optimistic....but last season, I was convinced he needed to hit the bricks.</P>


There were other things I was wrong about, but Fewell definitely ranks at top, because I was convinced he was one of the biggest problems with the defense.</P>

I was wrong about the Giants not winning a Superbowl.

I was worried about Cruz when he was first forced into the starting lineup.
I'm glad my concern was proven unnecessary.

I also told anyone who'd listen that the Giants would beat both the Packers and Niners and lose to the Cardinals in their regular season match-ups haha. Wrong.

I'm with the OP on Fewell. It felt like he was using his pass rushers as glorified DB's at times... but towards the end the sacks, deflections, and pressure-based INT's started piling up. I fully believe it was our pass rush disrupting Aaron Rodgers' timing that caused all those dropped passes that the GB receivers usually complete...

I still wish that PF would send a linebacker on the rush more often, but at least we're blessed to have a d-line that is able to rush 4 and make it count as if we were rushing 7, but without losing defenders in coverage...

I'm still a bit unsure and don't tottaly buy into
Rolle as a vocal leader- I tend to think he spouts off irresponsibly- but he also did a yoemans work by stepping up and playing the nickel as a safety (that said he did want out Pre jets game and did say as much) still he stuck
With it and kiwi mentioned his words helped many of the giants raise their games and therefore he obviously helped
To lead - worth the big contract or not- bravo

I was really convinced the whole house of cards was coming down with yet another collapse after a 6-2 start. I thought it was like Joe Torre, good but the magic was gone and we needed to move on. I needed to at least see a 1st round playoff win.

Magic struck twice.

1. Predicted the Giants would only win 4-6 games.

2. Never thought Aaron Ross could make it through a full season healthy.

3. Said Eli would continue to be just average and continue to throw dopey interceptions.

Tom Coughlin. I gave the ol' drill sergeant a really hard time last season for this team losing to teams they had no business losing to, and TC saying he didn't know why it happens. I thought he lost this team and so did a lot of other people. But they rallied around their old coach and won another SB for him!!</P>

I thought we were going to be an 8-8 or 9-7 and not make the playoffs with all of the injuries we sustained early. close on the record, totally missed the boat on the playoffs.

Although in the GB and SF losses I saw something I liked and even posted that we may lose a game or two more then turn around and win enough to make playoffs and win it all

I wish there was a way I could find it now.. But it may even be within a thread that I didn't start.. But I said it and people on here thought I was crazy

In one I said right before the GB game that this would be our "Week 17 game from 07". I said we would lose our 4th in a row but it would kick start us on the way to another title...


Then a follow up thread after everyone was up in arms on the following Monday after the fourth loss in a row. Title was "Relax score was 38-35 just like in 07". In that one I Was saying we were about to make history again. Most said I was on a crack pipe...

I am not going to bring these threads back up cause someone else did in past bringing up ten or so old threads. Now even though there were a lot of posters like me that never gave up. The person that brought up the threads did it prior to SB posing as giants fan trying to stir pot as a lot of people were down on gmen after 4 losses in row. So I won't dig up old stuff.. They are there if you want to see them....I will just put one small post from tons out of those ten Threads....when I was told I was crazy.. Lol

It kept the Pats unbeaten for the time being.
This will give us the push we need like it did in 07.
I count this as a victory.
We beat them in playoffs



I realize what you and guy below you are saying. However that is all u can take out of this.
Yes we are on a four game losing streak.
Yes we are just a .500 team
Yes we lost a huge chance to gain on the falcons, bears, Dallas and most likely the lions who lose to saints tonight.
Yes we lost more players today.
No it's not same circumstances as going all out when we could of just sat starters as we already made playoffs.
No it's not the same.
But u gotta use this as a jump start and realize if we can stand toe to toe with GB we can with anyone.
THAT'S ALL IM SAYING?
YOU DON'T AGREE?
STAY OFF BOARDS AND DO SOMETHING ELSE NEXT 4 weeks BUT DON'T WATCH THE GIANTS.

NOW if that is not the CALL of the Season I dont know what is...... and YES...GB did awake a sleeping GIANT.... A Giant that went out and won 5in a row and 6of7.

Since that week when we lost our 4th in a row in about a month and a half the giants have doubled the amount of wins they had at the end of that first gb game. we were 6-6 and now 12-7...

About to be 13-7 and a 4th SB Title.....

To be fair, the running game and TE's picked up towards the end of the season, and not to mention the pickup of Blackburn which was one of the many things that probably saved our season.

Fewell.

But he had the defense playing really well at the end of the season. I have to give him credit. When we beat the Jets and Cowboys, I started to believe in the defense again. Then I lost my mind when we blew out the Falcons, and again when we destroyed the Packers. I even thought the defense was playing good during the Niners game.

I was pretty right last season.

(predicted JPPs dominance, predicted Eli would have a great year and predicted The Giants would win the Superbowl prior to the season starting)

If anything I'd say after being blown out by the Saints I got down on the team too fast.

Then we we lost the redskins the second time I got down on the team again.

Other than that I smacking em out of the park all season.

Dont wanna come off as arrogant but i wasnt wrong about much last season.

I too tho was wrong about pf. Well i dunno honestly. I had said we needed to simplify things and that pf needed to get the d playing just z little better and we could make a run. I dont know if u could say i was wrong in that regard, but i def evil grew more n more critical of pf, but he did change/fix things up.

I also said eli would have one ofkey the best sb performances ever, and he fell short of that by a td pass or two so i was slightly off on that as well.

I was right there with u i remember me and u and a few others didnt stop believing. I remember predicting a win vs philly early in the season, ppl thought i was stupid. I remember saying that eli would continue the play he displayed second half vs stl, in which a few posters attacked me. I remember saying we would win by a few possessions vs dallas last game of the season, vs atl, vs gb and ppl thought that was stupid. I did say that about sf in the nfc cg was wrong on that one tho...

I made several pretty drastic predictions and they played out like i had said...

Ok now to change up from sounding stuck up, i did think we would have issues at wr before cruz emergence and i did think ppl were overrating cruz basd solely on that preseason...

Well to be fair, most people dont understand that eli wasnt staring down his primary as much as it was eli reading the d presnap and knowing where the window would be and waiting on the wr to a, run the right route and b, for him to get seperation.

Now i dont mind that all that much but eli did start to scan the field muuch more based on his presnap understanding of the d

Didn't think we would make the playoffs. I thought we'd be in the bottom 15 or so not top 10 but I thought we would have 6-8 wins. But I guess people stepping up like JPP and Cruz with all of our injuries really helped and even keeping Osi instead of dealing him helped our dline keep it together when Tuck was down. There was a lot but mostly I didn't think we would make the playoffs and thought there might be shake ups with 3 straight late season collapses.

I wouldnt say I was wrong last season cause I knew he was gonna be good, but I was totally shocked how far Eli has come as a QB in each season, its ridiculous. I gotta say I was wrong about Eli when we drafted him and the first few seasons, Im so happy I was wrong about him
