      Also, I'd like to know why people always attribute it to the network and never the individual writer or broadcaster. If John Clayton says he thinks the Giants are going to be 9-7, it's Clayton that is making that claim, not ESPN.

          ehh i mean its really a toss up. i have them looking at around 10-6 possibly even 11-5 (depending how the Saints play this year). i think we sweep Dallas and split with Washington and the Eagles to give us a 4-2 divison record.

            [/quote]Not unrealistic thinking with our schedule for a forecaster to predict 9-7. That might be generous... We as Homer Giants fans see 12-4 or 13-3. But someone on the outside looking in will be more honest with their Assessment
            Football has been very, very good to us.
            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

            # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

            1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
            2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
            3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
            4-New York Giants!!!
            5-NE
            Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

              That's because as a corporation, ESPN has no opinion (unless someone states explicitly that what they are saying is the opinion of the top brass), just the opinions of its employees. That is the opinion of one employee at ESPN, not of the entire network. What if another employee of ESPN, say Ashley Fox, says she believes the Giants will win 12 games, does that mean then that ESPN believes we will win 12 games or is it just Fox's opinion?

                This season has us with the reasonable expectations of anywhere between 6 and 13 wins, lol. I honestly wouldn't be any more surprised if we won 6 games as I would if we won 13. I actually think 10-6 (give or take 1 game) is where we'll finish.

                  I actually enjoy when that 'schmiegel' Lord of the Rings clone Calyton makes predictions! Whenever he gives a free agent rumor update,prediction,or opinion he's always wrong. He's like the MUSH out of all the analysts! let that nerd keep yappin away... I like when people give the Giants no props anyways.

                      What's so crazy about predicting that a 9-7 team with another tough schedule and no significant improvements will go 9-7 again? I don't necessarily agree with it, but that doesn't make the prediction awful. I can see the winning 11, but I can also see them winning 8. Some of you guys on this board act like any pick against the Giants is a personal slight or something.

                        I feel like usually feel about BSPN's take on the giants. I simply don't give a ****. They say this kind of garbage every single year. I am used to it as I am used to breathing.

                          im not guaranteeing x amount of wins, but if the giants are healthy this upcoming season, or at least less injury plagued than last year, it is a significantly better team as we all saw the last 6 games of the season.

                            Interestingly enough, Clayton picked the Eagles to win the East last year as well. Imagine that!! I hope his predictions are just as prescient this year.

                              He also changed his pick to the Redskins after week 3.

                              Either way, I don't think Clayton's prediction to be so farfetched. Obviously, I'd like the outcome to be a few games different in our favor, but it's not as bad as other's predicting a 13 game winner in the division.

                              O yea, btw, it's June.....
