  • This team never gets it's due

    The New York Giants might be defending champs, and the Dallas Cowboys might be everyone's preseason darlings, but the Eagles are arguably the most talented team in an NFC East that should be wide open in 2012. Better play from the linebackers might make the difference.

    This is an article on NFL.com. I think this is what keeps us hungry. No love. Never. I like it actually...

    Truthfully, I think it is us fans that are more concerned the Giants are not getting their "due" than they are.

    I don't think any of the teams or players actually buy into any of the media hype as much as we and the media do.

      It's getting a little tiresome to see a new thread every time some media outlet doesn't pick the Giants to win the SB again . . . . .

        Re: This team never gets it's due

        i agree op. i was reading an article about how far we've fallen behind philly and how much a sb contender philly is and how everything is perfect for them now...players have a yr under the d system, they have no more malcontents bc they paid djax and mccoy, top 5 qb, all pro's everywhere etc etc etc...

        i am not a moron, i can see philly has a talented roster...so do we. as talented if not more so bc our players actually deliver...we get pushed over by the media all the time, nothing new

          This from ESPN front page NFL:







          Cool picture, but read the bottom.... Are the Giants declining? NYG could miss the playoffs.




          How the hell can we be "declining"? I dont get it. It just doesnt make any sense what so ever. Declining from what? Winnign the superbowl? Again? Yeah, Giants could miss playoffs, so could every other team in the NFL. Giants could also MAKE the playoffs. Great job over there at ESPN. But Gronk is a better player then any player on the Giants, even Eli.




          They just absolutely hate us. And I love it.

            No no. You're looking at this the wrong way. It's tradition here. We must have our weekly, rediculous...............




            "The Giants don't get their props" thread.




            Didn't know you were the type to step on sacred tradition.

            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

              It's my own fault . . . I keep opening these threads. A glutton for punishment I guess . . . .

                The truth of the matter is that ESPN secretly loves us. They know the formula for continuous success is continuous doubt. So while they could very easily write these stories about us in a positive light, they are nice enough to instead take it upon themselves to be the "bad guy" and motivate us with a little reverse psychology.

                Its going to be a fun season! Time to defend the crown!

                  If you think about it for a second the odds are against them against repeating.

                  Add to that they where 9-7, and a lot of "experts" seem like they just read stats they are makin a safe choice.

                  Also, ever since he was drafted they have been on Vick to be the next best thing to happen in the NFL. We will now have to deal with the same with RG3 for a long time. Dallas will always be the media hyped favorite.

                    Long as Giants get Superbowl after Superbowl and they give these other teams props, then that means the Giants will be the best Superbowl Winners of all time.

                      Eli has done more than most QB's in the NFL have done or will ever do. He has by far done more than any QB in the NFC East.

                      I really don't care if ESPN or any outlet ever gives him any credit.

                        This is good. I'd actually like to see this because it never ends, whether it's from friends, co-workers, media the bs never ends.

                          I don't get why fans always seem to pick up on negativity. There are plenty of positive articles; a quick Google comes up with "New York Giants ' Tom Coughlin Ranked NFL's #1 “Good Guy”" and " New York Giants : 7 Players We Trust the Most in the Clutch" on the first page. There was also an article the other week in which Jerry Rice named Victor Cruz as one of his top young WRs. But nevermind those, no, fans like to play the victim card and will find any excuse to do so

                            Honestly, this stuff is all white noise to me now. I used to ***** and complain about this stuff, but it will never change. It is what it is. The players in the locker room can care less about what these ANALysts or journalists say and neither should we. I think the mods should create a "***** about the media" forum so all of those that take what these people say about the giants seriously. Anyways, we have our two rings in 5 years. That tells me all that I need to know about the giants

                              Realistically, who in their right mind would drool over us? The only dominant team we fielded for the last decade was in 2008. During that year, the media was all over our jock. Even the 2 SB years, we whimpered into the playoffs as under dogs. The media loves consistency. We aren't.
