Excerpt: "Not far from where the inflatable red and green truck that bears the name The Energy Truck stands, complete with a Tom Coughlin caricature behind the wheel, Victor Cruz begins talking about what it means for these Giants to defend the Lombardi Trophy.

The Giants and the Lombardi Trophy: Til Death Do They Part.

It means a lot, it means a lot, Cruz begins. We understand that coming into the season, everybody was gunning for us because were the defending champs so, to defend it means everything.

You want to keep that trophy under lock and key, and you dont want anyone to try and come in and say they can take it from you or anything like that so, we just want to continue to fight for it and hopefully be hoisting another one up this year.

I ask Cruz: So what is it going to take to take this trophy away from this team?

Its going to take a lot, he said. Its going to take them having to beat us down physically, mentally, everything for another team to take our trophy from us because we live and die by it, we understand how hard it was to get there, how hard it was to play in that game emotionally, physically, and its going to take a lot for people to take that from us.

Our mental toughness is what separates us from other teams. Not saying that other teams aren't mentally tough but everyone seems to want to know how we are always in it even though we look like we are just about done. The Giants never give up, ever.

And everyone knows that when they play their best, they cannot be beaten. The Giants know it. We, the fans, know it. And the other teams know it too, and they are afraid to see us get to the playoffs because of it.

That is what we said last year at this time.

That is what we said last year at this time.The packers have a better chance this year than they did last year when they were reading their press clippings. Now that they have been humbled, I expect them to make some noise in the playoffs.

Perfect opportunity. I think Kaepernick thing is going to blow up on the 49ers soon... Packers are really iffy... Atlanta sucks in the playoffs and overrated. Who else is good really?

Bears...Packers...eh maybe.

I think it will come down to the 49ers or you guys for the NFC title. You guys are in our heads too much.

Could be. But I really think the 49ers might get knocked out early enough. Kaepernick isnt that experienced and if they go with him throughout the playoffs, I think it won't go too well for them. They won't change to Alex midway either.

Seattle is a darkhorse team. They are getting hot at the right time.
