  • After this Sunday, Jets game is meaningless

    The Jets game is now basically meaningless - unless the Giants lose to the Redskins. Even if Dallas beats Tampa AND Philly and we drop the game against the Jets, we still control our destiny by beating the Cowboys the last week of the season. Last night's game was HUGE, next week's game is HUGE, but the Jets game isn't huge.

    So: if it comes down to the Jets game being completely meaningless to our playoff run - do we rest up Boley, Bradshaw, Osi, and all the other dudes who are really toughing it out right now? I know that's not TC or the Giants way, but this year has been more brutal than usual - and after we beat the Skins on Sunday, it doesn't matter one iota what happens to us in the Jets game.

    On the other hand, the Skins actually looked very sharp against the Pats (game was on TV in my part of the USA) yesterday and should have won - they definitely did enough to win (that Pats defense is awful, by the way - no way they go far in AFC playoffs).

    That game has been meaningless for weeks now.

      We can still help our seeding -- if NO and SF slip (take their foot off the gas, it happens) the bye week is in the cards.

      And the Jets are the #6 seed right now, we can potentially help knock them out of the picture.

        Wrong again.




        If we beat the Jets and Washington and the Cowboy lose one or two, we could clinch the division before the Dallas game.




        We actually have a chance to make the Dallas game meaningless.

        Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

            Nope...




            49ers and Saints are 10-3. We can get 10 wins to ties them if they lose all their games, but they still both own a tiebreaker over us by winning head to head.




            Best shot we have is the division and the 4 seed.

              If Dallas beats TB and loses to Philly and we win both, I believe we have the common game tie breaker. We would be even in the division and common opponents is the next tie breaker, NOT conference record.




              The Jets game could very well be for the division for us.

                No game is meaningless, every game matters until the playoff spot is clinched. With the way the Giants have been playing, they need to have that mentality until the season is over.
                My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

                      please.....the team has 3 games to go and are tied for first place. They need to win all three games. I dont care about playoff computations. They need to win out. The defense needs to get way better or even somewhat better over the next 3 weeks.




                      When you are tied for first with three games left and one of those games is against the team you are tied with......there are NO meaningless games.

                          That's been the Giants mentality for the past few years, and it always burns them. Play to win every single game.

                              thats what we want to have it clinched prior to the last game. That way we can use it just as a tuneup to get guys ready that have been out..and maybe work in some plays for the Rooks..and then rest impt guys so they dont get hurt for playoffs.

                              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
