  • This weeks SI Mid Season Report

    Back when they had their annual NFL Preview Issue they predicted a GB 33-30 win over Denver as their SB Pick. Well they re racked their picks.

    They seeded the NFC like this 1)Falcons. 2)49ers. 3)Giants. 4)Bears. 5)Packers. 6)Seahawks


    AFC seeds 1)Texans. 2)Denver. 3)NE. 4)steelers. 5)Colts. 6)Ravens

    Under each team they give a little blurb.. Under the Gmen it said.. "Eli has won 8 of his last 9 Postseason Starts. Be wary, NFC. Be very wary.

    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!!!

        For their Super Bowl pick the wrote the following:

        The little write up said. "Whom do you trust late with the game on the line? Two-time SB MVP Eli Manning or Matt Shaub, who has never started in the postseason? Giants 24 Texans 20



        Not sure i like them changing their mind and picking us. Liked it better when they picked Rodgers to beat Eli's brother

          Never liked these kind of things, but it'd be cool to see them beating Houston for a SB title.

          That being said, that road that they present looks pretty difficult.... We're talking beating a good Seattle defensive team (even if we'd playing at home....), 49ers when we beat them in the season, and then Falcons... and wouldn't the Falcons be home? Scary... but we beat this team before, but at home.

            based off the seedings we'd have SF and Atlanta on the road. We also play them Away in December

            Also they obviously have SF finishing with a better record then us cause we beat em head to head so they can't tie us. Guess they saw our 2nd half schedule huh?

              As far as beating someone we beat in the season. I like it better when they beat us. We've made a living of that in recent past... However we also have done it the other way. We beat NE last season and beat em in SB... But I get what your saying

                Also in 86 we beat SF, Washington twice and Denver in the Regular Season. We beat them all again in the Playoffs and SB




                However more times then not we have lost to teams during yr and got revenge in playoffs or SB.. See 1990, 2007 and 2011 (other then NE)

                  Ah, so atlanta had home... might be difficult but with the way our offense has been rolling, I like our chances. Pass happy Eli is better than pass happy Matt Ryan for sure. It'd be the ultimate wide receiver show down.

                      In light of all our second half collapses in the TC/Eli era I'm surprised they are picking us

                        The Giants have had a history of collapse even before the Eli/TC era. Maybe they think we are entering a turning point.

                            yea I mean even in our two SB winning seasons we only went 4-4 and 3-5 in those 2nd halves

                            I think over past 9 seasons 5-3 was our best second half record. One of them was when we went 7-1 in 1st half to go 12-4 and we all know what happened in our first playoff game after earning the bye. Laid an egg vs Philly at home..

                            So I guess we should be happy they have us doing it on the road again where we are more comfortable... I mean who wants to lock up home field throughout. Where's the fun in that?

                              I expect the seedings to change...I don't believe Atlanta holds onto the conferance #1 seeding...I don't prefer the Giants have it either...I do prefer the Giants seed higher than Atlanta
