I just do not see how anyone can pick the cowboys or the eagles to win the NFC. Even if they manage to take the division from us, which is highly highly doubtful, they are somehow going to be able to beat the packers and the 49ers or some combination, or the saints or whoever they play?
Did you see how many hits Eli took in the 49ers game? At that point in the season Vic would absolutely crumble under that kind of physical game. The guy can't even make it through the pre-season anymore. He might not even survive game 4 with us. Romo is the best 4th quarter quarterback to lose 90% of the games decided in the forth quarter.
If anyone picks these teams its disrespect of what we have done. We shutdown and outscored all the best teams on our super bowl run. We are fielding essentially the same team...if not better.
Not picking us is disrespect. Sticking a fork in Strahan's neck is disrespect. I really hope we wallop these mofo's this year.
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.
Great! Let them forget about us until its too late. Bawahahaha
"KILL'EM ALL AND LET THE PARAMEDICS SORT IT OUT!"
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.
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
Our D was much better than GB's and our O was much better than the niners. We basically blew out GB the second game.
The niners were closer, but not a huge amount better than the giants, if at all.
I don't disagree with you, but I'm trying to make the point as to why the media is picking them over the Giants. They see numbers and rankings, and they base their opinions on those numbers and rankings. The Giants were largely middle of the road for most of last season in a lot of categories, and were dead last in pretty much every rushing category. That is the kind of stuff they remember, and why, despite winning the SB, they'll never get the kind of praise that a lot of folks here think is warranted. I dont see what they're saying as disrespect. It's a numbers game, and numbers dont lie.
As we all know, they have their favorites too. Dallas, GB, the Jets, Philly, and now Denver will always be part of the conversation, no matter how good or bad they're playing. It's nothing new, but keep it in mind.
anyone here the espn radio personaity pick giants going in as wild card and winning super bowl against the new england i was like wtf is he smoking ? heard it saturday 9-1-12
