    Packers over 49ers

    Eagles over 49ers

    Eagles over Packers

    Yep... Also SIs NFL Preview came out today. They don't even have us making the playoffs. Guess what.. They don't have the eagles making it either. They have cowboys winning NFCE with a 10-6 record. Followed by the giants and eagles at 9-7 both missing playoffs....Please""..........
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    How is this disrespect? Yes, the Giants won the SB last season. It doesn't mean they were the best, most powerful team in the NFL. Quite frankly, they were a 9-7 team that got hot at the perfect time. They had a lot of flaws, and they still do, especially with yet another injury plagued pre-season this year.

    Look at the schedule, look at the question marks across the roster, and then ask yourself, REALISITICALLY AND HONESTLY, if you'd pick the Giants to repeat. These guys aren't paid to be homers. GB and SF were much stronger teams last season, and even though the Giants beat them both in the playoffs, it doesn't mean the Giants were the overall stronger team. THAT DAY, they were, but the numbers dont lie. If you expect most analysts to automatically pick the Giants to win it all again, you're not being the least bit realistic.

    I definitely think we'll be in the mix. Right now, today, I dont see a repeat. On paper, there are too many question marks. Thats not disrespect, thats objectivity and reality.

    I don't think everyone thinks they are going to repeat but a lot of the so called experts have us missing the playoffs that is disrespect and unfair the Giants are not as bad as you seem to think the fact of the matter is the Eagles were 8-8 last so were the Cowboys and Detriot had one more win then us,so how do some of them have us missing the playoff, do you think the Eagles are that much better then the Giants that they are going to make it to the NFCG?

    I dont think the Giants will be a bad team this season. I just dont think they'll be as good as many of you guys are expecting. Right off the bat, the OL, on paper, got potentially worse. We have no idea how that unit is going to gel, and with no OL, you aren't doing much of anything on offense. The secondary is blown up all to hell with injuries, the DT spots are a concern because of injury/depth, there's a youth movement going on at LB, and some new blood in Rivers, which is also a question mark on paper.

    I'm not being negative, and I'm not being overly positive. I look at this team, and we really have no idea if they've improved from last season or not. A TON of changes took place, and a lot of new blood is on the roster. Its not unreasonable to have concerns and to look at things without blue glasses on.

    And I almost forgot. Did you take a gander at the schedule? Ugliest I've seen in years, on top of all of the question marks. Add it all up, and a lot of people aren't going to have high expectations for this team, especially the media types. I hope I'm wrong.

    Really, so they BOTH played their worst game twice last season, because they both barely beat us in the regular season.
    Why didn't they blow us out during the season if they were so much stronger. Seems like you are just ignoring that we were
    competitive with them even when our team was banged up.

    Not to be a smart ***, but I don't recall seeing an "Almost" anywhere near the W-L columns

    I know the games were very tight, but the Giants still lost them and got in with 9 wins, as opposed to 15 wins for GB and 13 for SF. Comparing GB's offense with the Giants' offense is not close, nor is comparing SF's defense with the Giants's defense. Thats all I meant
