  • Not happy about all the attention that were getting

    Since everybody is making 2007 comparison threads allow me to make one of my own.

    One of the biggest reasons we won it all in 2007, is because we play the underdog card so well.

    Technically, we still underdogs by 7.5 points, but every talking head and analyst is saying were going to beat them.

    I really hope that we don't come out flat. We can't have a first quarter like we had against the falcons, we need to come out swinging.

    Besides the fat man, the entire packers squad has been relatively silent when it comes to talking trash.

    So here's to the Giants backing up their talk this week.

    Rant over
    They said Brady and the Patriots couldn't be beat, Eli did it twice, how's that for Elite?

    I don't think we have to worry about them being flat. They're not gonna overlook the Packers.

      Im happy about the attention. Most of us complain all year that they dont get enough compared to teams like the cowboys. We may not have deservd all that much attention at points in the year, but we deserve it now. This team is really coming together, and could be among the toughest.

        Exactly. I love the attention and it won't affect the game at all. We are going to keep this train rolling all the way to the superbowl!!

          It is a bit disconcerting. Still, I think that confidence is a good thing for a team that has enough talent but doesn't always play that way.

            Over the past decade, though, when the Giants have been rolling and the media says "hey, watch out for this team", they go out and crap the bed. That's why we don't usually get attention to begin with, because analysts who jump on the Giants background get embarrassed halfway through the season.

            I hope they play phenomenal, I really do, it's just a matter of getting big-headed

              We will be underdogs next week to. Lol
              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!!!

                The way I see it, everyone is mentioning it, but no one is actually picking them. The analysts don't actually think they're gonna win, its just the popular thing to talk about lately.

                  When you're one of 8 teams left in the playoffs, you're gonna get attention. It was like this in 08 too.

                    It's either we don't get enough attention or get too much attention . Either Way giants fans complain.

                    Also, what does it mean to "play the underdog so well" ? What kind of skillet is that? We need to come out and play to our potential and leave it all on the field . Everything else means nothing once the ball is kicked off.

                      WTF?? We get too much attention and folks pick us to win? Almost NOBODY has picked us to win. Fuggedaboutit...
                      Just when I don't think it can get any worse, I think of you Ray. I have been to the abyss....thank you for helping me stay positive.

                        A few people did pick them. They're saying we're the hottest team in football and if we use The Chiefs plan we have the best chance of beating them.

                        The rest are gushing over the Packers. They won't to hate, let em hate.

                        Just bulletin board stuff for Tom Coughlin.

                        Ringing in the 2012 season!

                          i've noticed quite a few giving us a ton of credit and a shot to win the game. a lot of references to 2007 for sure....but, when it comes down to picking the game, most people are still picking the packers. i do understand what you are saying though. but yeah, while we have quite a bit of swagger going on, and a lot of people are paying attention, i think it's a good thing, and we still are the underdog.

                            I'm happy when we're not favored. The Giants can get quite fired up when they feel they're being counted out. Nothing to lose, everything to gain. No pressure as a dog. We can play hard and loose. Look out!

                            IMO, this is right where we want to be: Lambeau, sunday, dogs. And hungry dogs at that!
