    Giants, Packers Ready To Go At It Again

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...WcJvFa7ZRHlK0N

    Excerpt: "The Giants will not be wearing their diamond-and-sapphire encrusted Super Bowl rings when they take the field Sunday night. The Vince Lombardi Trophy won’t be paraded in and put on display at midfield for the coin toss.No, the only way for the Giants to remind the invading Packers who the real champions are is to prove it on the field, again.

    "We know they’re going to come in [ticked] off about last year and we have to be ready for that intensity,’’ guard Chris Snee said.

    Through 16 games last season, the high-flying Packers were the uncrowned champs, 15-1 and big favorites to handle a Giants squad that finished the regular season at 9-7. What was supposed to be a formality of an NFC divisional playoff game instead became a launching pad for one team and a gangplank for the other. The Giants soared, the Packers sunk.

    And then the Packers yakked about it.
    “The fact is, they didn’t beat us, we beat ourselves,’’ all-world linebacker Clay Matthews said back in the summer, adding, “We picked the most inopportune time to play our worst ball.’’In training camp the Giants, still aglow from their astounding title run, had their say about this slight, with Snee mentioning the shiny new ring he earned and Justin Tuck saying if the Packers beat themselves then who was it that caused all those fumbles and got all those sacks? Everyone got a good chuckle and moved on. Until now." Read more...

    I was just checking their site to see what his status is. He was out for the last game with an injury. No update yes.
