  • Home field advantage?

    If we wind up winning a few more games and take the division, do you guys really think its an actual advantage to the Giants to play on their home turf? History shows that we play better on the road, remember the 07 slogan "road warriors". I don't feel comfortable in my gut that any road to the Super Bowl take place through Met Life stadium. How do you feel about it?

      Maybe....I always want the Giants to play at home in the playoffs us fans deserve to see them at least win a couple home playoff games. I also like watching them beatdown teams on the road and watch their crowd go silent. Like GB last year and San Fran.... so awesome watching their fans cry on youtube.

        Well we really don't have a choice, unless we intentionally tank games to allow Dallas & Philly to catch up. Which is obviously not a good idea.

          I'm cool with the one home game in the WC round. Then go back on road as 4th seed and knock out the 1s and 2s again in their a buildings to get to another SB
          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!!!

            if you are going to play at home anyway.....then you might as well
            get the bye and start in round 2.

              byes are no good. You lose to much momentum. Look at GB last yr. Rodgers sat out their last reg season game then had the Bye. So when the upstart HOT giants team came to Lambeau Arron had not thrown a pass in a meaningful game in 4 wks. And had not played for 3 wks. The rust showed both with Rodgers and his WRs. I'd rather just keep the momentum going and play right from first weekend of playoffs. Extra game but it suites us

                I completely agree about the bye week, I think the team loses its steam and momentum. If your going full force throughout the playoffs it's like hitting the brakes. Just look at the giants in 07 Super Bowl run, coming in full force barreling their way through the playoffs without the bye. Then when u get to the bowl, both teams have bye's so it's an even playing field.

                    Eli can't pass in NY. Giants are a better road team.

                      the Giants have made it the SB 3 of 5 times with the bye as #1 or #2 seed.

                      they are only 2 of 10 without the bye.

                        Honestly..it's great that we win on the road in the playoffs..but at some point we have to be able to win on the road AND at home. If we are true "champs" then we should be up to the task either way.

                          We have to Learn to WIN @ Home, or on the road, ALSO ........Don't Blow leads, Score TD's instead of FG and play GIANT FOOTBALL !

                            The one thing to note about Atlanta is that they're a warm weather dome team, and historically they don't play well outdoors, especially in cold weather. The Giants also stunk in their 2 prev home playoff games vs Carolina & Philly respectively - they're just not as good at home in the Coughlin era.

                              And those 2 times we made it to the SB without the bye were the 2007 and 2011 teams. On the other hand, we had the bye in 2008 and were one-and-done. With Eli's team, I'd rather play the WC round to be honest...

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