They have a much better oline then us and a better, more consistent run game. They have a dominant slot receiver and two great tight ends. Not to mention they have brandon lloyd. The giants have better wrs, however, the pats have more overall talent on offense and tom brady with a hurry up offense at his disposal (sigh).

NE does a few things better than the Giants do on a yr to yr basis. They consistantly win 4-5 games within the division, they rarely lose to inferior teams & they have the uncanny ability to lose starters & replace them with backups that are just as good. The 2 losses by a combined 3 pts to Philly/Skins cost us a chance to be playing vs the 9ers next week.

Ginats need to start showing some consistancy on a weekly basis next yr & stop this BS Jekyll & Hide mentality they seem to have yr in, yr out. It's gotten that a 6-2 start by them is the butt of jokes among fans of other teams cuz they all know it's almost inevitable that a 2nd half collapse is coming.

I wouldn't say that this year, we lost to some pretty damn good teams, the Redskins, Steelers, Bengals, Philly (early), Dallas, Ravens, Falcons. Those are legit teams and have improved this year. I'm more concerned with losing 3 games a year in the division. That's what keeps us from going 12-4.

Dallas beat 2 of the teams we couldn't in Cincy & Pitt, matter of fact , Dallas went 3-1 & should have won the Ravens games as well if Dez doesn't drop an easy 2 point conv that would have sent the game into OT. So I guess the Boys were better than us since they whooped up on 'good' NFCN teams that we couldn't?

Agree 100%. Hate NE with a passion but respect the heck outta that organization & the way they consistantly are in the thick of the SB hunt yr in & yr out.

Nothing seems to faze them & their yearly goal of winning the SB. This marks the 7th AFCCG in the last 12yrs! Haters can talk all this 'well they haven't won it all since 04' crap..but the fact of the matter is that unlike the vast majority of the other teams in the NFL that have a few good yrs then fall off into mediocrity, since 2001, the Patriots have been a force to be reckoned with. No team except for us I guess, seems to think they have a chance vs NE, especially in their house where they are virtually unbeatable. this past decade.

Even in their 4 losses this yr, they lost by a combined total of 11 points.

It seems like every yr they are a 12-13 win team & always have the top 2 seeds. Not really their fault the Jets/Bills/Fish are run by people that aren't smart enough to draft players that can counter NE's skill players & can't draft a QB good enough to give Brady some competition in the passing game.

Eagles were 4-12 this yr & we still couldn't sweep em. Don't wanna hear about how hard it is to sweep a team you play 2x a yr. NE does it with ease just about every yr. Last yr we let a 5-11 Skins team with sexy Rexy at QB sweep us!

The AFC North turned out to be a very formidable division - Balt, & Flacco especially are very good at home, and needed that game just as much as the Giants did, Cinci's D was awesome this year (also esp at home), and the Steelers make the playoffs if Ben wasn't hurt at the end of the season (Giants played them before he got hurt).- so those 3 losses shouldn't have been all that big of a shocker, nor was losing to a good Atl team at their place. What the Giants need to do is correct their div opponent woes they've been having - losing to Philly & Wash by a total of 3 points and splitting within the div is not going to cut it most seasons - they need to be more consistent period

thank you! finally some sense. their division is, has been and will continue to be a joke. For as long as Brady/Belichick have been together the afc east has been pathetic. couple of decent seasons from the Jets, and in one of those they backed in thanks to the Bengals and Colts basically forfeiting.
Look at the division they play in also.

Unfortunately, I must agree with most of your points about the consistency N.E. has shown thru the last 12 years. Even though many players have come and gone at N.E. the one position that has been the same is the head coach. GM's, VP's, among others have changed but not the coach. He sets the table, gets the groceries, cooks the dinner and delivers the dessert. Its the B.B. show! He makes the difference that presents the consistency we watch from N.E. every year.

Of course they are human. But this has been an ongoing issue for what, 9 or so years?Yeah, the issue is which one of TC's motivational tactics will actually get through to them. The latest ones haven't been working. but it can't be denied that whatever he did to propel our runs to the SB, did in fact work.

How come it only works when we are on a five game losing streak or 7-7 staring playoff elimination in the face? I know you don't know all of the answers, I would be shocked. These are questions the coaches as well as the players need to ask themselves.

What surprises me is that it took some people 6/7 years to realize it.

Lots of things really are telling of this. Eli has 2 years where he was 8-0 and 2 superbowl wins, and 3 years where he is 0-3 in the postseason. Its never 1-1, or 2-1. Its all or nothing. This year we chose to not even make it. And the funny thing is, it isnt like we are a horrible team ever. Maybe for a game or 2, but never for a full season. 8-8 is the worst Coughlin has had this team since 2004. Thats average. But we play awesome part of the year, and ugly as poo in other parts. Its never an even, ok we won a good game, and ok we lost a good game. Its either we dominate the 49ers in San Fran when everyone thinks they should beat us down, or lose to the Browns on MNF by getting completely embarrassed when we were suppose to dominate.

That, IMO, is on the coaching.

I'm guessing that anyone who thinks that we won our last two SB's because of TC's "motivational tactics" has never stepped out onto a football field. Coaches' rah-rah pep talks have very little impact on what happens out on the field.

Our season this year had nothing to do with TC's ability to motivate.

Which is why it's so hard to understand.

Football is a game of seconds and taking advantages of the opportunities given to you. This season the Giants had PLENTY of opportunities to win games or change momentum in games and they simply didn't get the job done. Last year was the complete opposite of that.

Motivation has little to do with it.
