    and those were even the worst days at all.

      Why not us?
      I agree they can make a go is and have the peices to do it. But after 9-7 season and even at 2.5 perdecade like you said its still a tall order.
      I go game by game anf if the get into the playoffs then it becomes a new season.

        Tall order, that's why we have Ramses Barden

            Some definitely are...(buddy) but that's a very very slim percentage.

            We could go 1-15 for the next 5 years and I'll still root as hard as ever.



            I'm a DIEHARD Giants fan.... oh and a DIEHARD Knicks fan.... yea

              my biggest frustration with the team is the inconsistency, we just don't seem to play at the same level of intensity and this has been going on for years now, we just never know which Giant team is going to show up for the game if they show up at all...

                the only one who can beat the Giants is the Giants themselves.........man for man on a talent level through the entire 53 there is no better team out there.

                Right now I would nominate Eli for League MVP and likely the #1 QB in the NFL......no one is playing better than him.

                So far in their two losses they gave us a lackluster performance. By and large we should be able to handle Dallas and Philly, but for some strange reason we do not show up against these two teams lately (or the Skins).

                    If we went 1-15, I'd want our coach's head, and I'd want some serious improvement. That's because I love this organization that the Mara family has created over the generations, not the individuals in it. Those that say "You should respect webster/tuck/bradshaw/diehl/etc for his body of work and allow him to continue starting" when he's obviously lost a step are fans of the players over the organization. Their body of work has been put into the books, to be remembered forever in the highlight reels. But nobody stays young and healthy forever. Eventually, even Eli must retire. But I will still be a Giants fan regardless.

                    And frankly, I'm getting tired of people saying "TC/KG/etc should be given a free berth because he has 2 Super Bowls". But TC is not larger than the Giants organization. I hope that he has the introspection to know when it's time to call it quits, but if he ever stopped trying on the job and refused to step down, I would call for his head in an instant. Same with any of the players. NONE of them are bigger than the organization, not even Eli or TC.

                    And besides, TC seems to produce his best work when he's on the hot seat, so why not do our duty as fans of the organization and constantly put him there?

                    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                      Agreed!
                      Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

                        I know these giants all too well. Until we are elimated from playoff contention, I will be on board. This team plays their best football with their back against the wall, unfortunately.

                          I think the majority are just venting because we lost to 2 inferior teams. We were 9-7 going into the playoffs last year and had some head scratching losses....if you're jumping ship now, you were never really on board.
                          I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

Not because I dont think they can but I am taking one game at a time knowing winning back to back SBs is an extremely hard thing to do. Its hard enough being a Giants fan week to week without putting the added pressure on myself thinking they "have" to reach and win the SB...
                            The only thing I expect out of this group of Giants is a playoff appearance. This group is talented enough where I don't think that that is an unreasonable expectation.

                              Yeah, the age thing is a load of BS. I'm "only" 22 years old so I suppose I am considered a 'younger' fan. But I am as die-hard as it gets in sports fandom. My father raised me to like..Love 2 teams and 2 teams only. The New York Gaints the Boston Red Sox. Since about age 6 I have never waivered from these two teams and never will.

                              I have learned from him what being a Giants fan was like pre-1985. He and my grandmother taught me what being a Red Sox fan was like pre-2003. I understand the history and I respect it. I realize I am lucky to see my teams win.

                              I think what should be noted is the dbag 'bandwagon' fans. Regardless of age, these are the worst sports fans off all. Worse than a loyal Eagles fan. Worse (for me) than a loyal Yankees fan. Bandwagon fans are a disgrace to fandom. But such is life...

                              By the way I am a Giants/Red Sox fan because my father grew up in Manchester, NH in the 50's. There were no Patriots, it was Giants and Red Sox territory. Another ****ty fact: my grandmother was a life long die-hard sox fan and passed away in the middle of the 2004 ALCS between the Sox and Yanks. I gotta pay homage and be a sox fan


                              Conclusion: Its not the young fans, its the Bandwagon, I mean ***wagon Fans.... and they can eat ****
