Not that it matters but since we're reporting people predicitions I thought I'd report this one especially since many here seem to think Collinsworth hates the Giants.

On Eisen's podcast he said the Giants are the "most complete" team and should be favored from here on out.

Yeah I heard that earlier, and I hate Collinsworth so it's so hard to give him credit lol. But kudos to Chris for using his head for once.

It makes sense. There isn't another team left that should feel they can both score a lot of points and prevent them.

It's also amazing how healthy the team is right now. Our only question mark is Herzlich.

Did he say it in that nasally voice, throw a back handed comliment at Eli and then say Romo is a unbelievable QB?

I'm sure he prefaced that statement with "well since all the talented worthy teams are out of the playoffs...."

No but you could see it in his eyes.

He actually said he was wrong for predicting the the Pack would beat the Giants. (Which I never hear an analyst do)

When asked if the Packers were rusty he said that the Packers were "Exposed" by the Giants and the that Giants were the more complete team and that he didn't know why he didn't see it sooner.

There were no backhanded compliments to be found and he actually went on for a good while on the subject.

All bull**** to me, my friend was dumping crap all over the giants all year, and all of a sudden they beat the Packers and he comes to tell me that he was wrong, after I told him he was wrong all year?

I still think he's a coward, if he hates the giants and he "should have seen it sooner" he shouldn't be up there doing what he does.

Enough is enough, keep your bias somewhere else ***-hat

Rush Limbaugh says 9ers and Pats. He's a Steelers fan and predicted their upset. He based Giants game on two injuries no ones talking about, probably - Baas/Ballard. I think he predicted Obama would lose, so there ya go.

I saw the Collinsworth thing. Honestly, I think he's one of the dumbest announcers on TV. Thus, him picking us is kind of a bad thing in my opinion =P

we just need to admit that 8 times out of 10, most of us are hardcore Giant homers.</P>


whenever anyone predicts a giant loss, we think its because of some kind of character flaw !!!!!</P>


its nice chris thinks that, they'll be differing opinions, but i've always liked his commentary whenever i've been successful at taking off my homer glasses.</P>

Collinsworth said he thinks the Giants will win Vegas said the 49ers are the favoritesThe Giants have put Vegas in deep doo-doo. Methinks this may portend some actions.

Honeslty I'm not a big Collinsworth fan and I do think he has a bit of a beef with the Giants for some reason but...

Give credit where its due. He said he was wrong. Most analyst start couching that "Hot" crap or that "rust" crap or whatever...they never can just say "Im sorry I don't know what I'm talking about"

Collinsworth came pretty close the other night so we should give him some props for that.

so why say we are FAVORITES, just say i think the Giants will win the Super Bowl



don't mess with our us vs. the world, road warrior mentality



Vegas is the only entity qualified to determine the favorites
