  • ESPN FIRST TAKE PICKS



    Steven A.. even with all the Giants talk that he thinks is going to hurt them somewhat still has giants winning game by 14pts... He said Cruz will be the MVP..




    Bayless still thinks Giants are better up and down the boards but with what Canty said and how the Giants have conducted themselves this week he is leaning toward BB using it to their advantage and picks the Pats 17-14 in a close one. He went back to his original pick earlier in season which was Pats.
    He thinks brady will get hit alot and wont be a huge factor. Lots of dinks and dunks.. But said it will be the Pats running game that will be the Giants undoing.

    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!!!

      Re: ESPN FIRST TAKE PICKS

      I am absolutely SICK of the arrogance and overconfidence of this team, it's gotten to a point where it's getting me really annoyed. It's as if our whole team (besides Eli and Bradshaw and a few other players) have turned into Mayweather.

      Despite this, I still think we win the game simply because we're the better team, but if we lose, oh man are we going to hear about it and look like the biggest clowns in the world.

        Your mistaking confidence for arrogance.




        And don't be mistaken, all 53 players on this team are confident, just some are letting the media know.




        The game will be won on the field, if the Patriots need the Giants brash talk to motivate them, then we already have this game in the bag.




        The Giants have talked the talk and walked the walk.

          If that didnt give motivation for the Pats to beat us, nothing will. I dont agree with all the talking, but it is what it is. They have been doing it for the past month. Win, and all is forgiven. Lose, and that will be a focal point of why we lost, even if it had nothing to do with it.

            I have absolutely nothing wrong with the stuff they're saying IF they say it amongst themselves in the locker room and whatnot, NOT to the media. It's gotten to a point where the media doesn't have to try to blow things up, we're just Giving them headline materials to the point where even the media is getting bored and stopped caring.

            I've said this before, I can't tell you how many people were rooting for us as soon as we won the NFCC that have changed their minds because of how we've been acting lately.

            It's interesting to note that people like Eli, Bradshaw, Tuck and a few other veterans aren't the ones doing all the talking, it's all the younger players that haven't been in a SB yet that seem to think we've already won this thing.

              imho, what plax said before sb42 doesn't even amount to half as much as what we've been saying this time.

              back at that time everyone thought we'd lose, this time it's a toss up, and our players are definitely acting accordingly.....if you seen us earlier in the season in interviews, we were the most humble team in the NFL.

                  Plax predicted 20-17... but, You're absolutely right about the talking. All 11 men have to kick butt on every snap, snap to whistle, regardless of who talks the talk. It'll be won on the field by the team thaT plays a little better on Sunday. If a man needs to hear some trasj talk from the other team in order to get motivated, then he's not a professional. I think our guys are confidant because they knw every man will be giving supreme effort on every play, and they've done a good job prtecting the ball, so they don't expect turnovers to be their downfall.

                    Thats what surprised me. You would think the coaching staff and the guys that have been there would have put the clamp on them and told them what they could and couldnt say. I am shocked that TC has allowed this to go on all week.




                    He hates it when a giants player celebrates to much during a game even when we have a game in hand. he gets really upset witth if there is anytime left on the clock he wants them focused not whooping it up.




                    so with that said. its a real surprise to say the least that he let it escalate to this level. he is not the type coach that like to give any kind of edge to the other team.
                    By the way Canty is not a young player. he should know better

                    Football has been very, very good to us.

                      Do you think somehow this talking will somewhat affect the game? It's just talk, and the Giants have every right to be confident.

                            +1. They have not been talking crap. They're saying the same stuff that they've been saying throughout the playoffs -- they're confident and I don't want them to change their attitude.




                            If NE wants bulletin board material, then use whatever they want.
