I'm not worried about the Cowboys. It's in Garrett's DNA to make some boneheaded decision at the end of a game to cost them a crucial win. Shanahan, on the other hand, is actually an NFL caliber head coach.
I don't think you can ever count the Giants out, however they have yet again made the path to the playoffs more difficult. It seems like they have no passion or desire until they have their backs against the wall.... which in my view is rediculous. Clearly they have the ability to play amongst the best, but all too often they come out with no desire to play. I don't know if it's coaching or players, most likely a combination of the two, but it is frustrating!
My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...
I mean we looked like crap against Pitt. and Cincy and then we look like the '85 Bears against the hottest team in football vs. GB.
Its all about matchups. Each week is a season in itself.

one thing we forget about last year's run is that the giants had an extremely favorable schedule. they played the cowboys twice, the redskins weren't supposed to be tough, and they got an extra home game because of the jets game. this year they can play great, but good teams usually take care of home field so the raven and falcons games will be extremely tough to win. we have to count on the other teams losing because at best i see them splitting the next four.
I see them beating the Falcons and the Ravens on the road. This team always steps up when their backs are put up against a wall and nobody gives them a chance. Then they will probably lose in an ugly manner to the Eagles, but still make the playoffs and that's when all the fun begins.
Giants will lose tiebreaker to the winner of the Redskins Dallas game . The Giants, the best they can finish is 3-3 in the division while the Boys are 3-2 and Skins are 3-1. So in reality losing to the Redskins cost the Giants 2 games not 1. My belief is the Redskins win the NFC East.Just hoping the Seahawks lose 2 games to get them in as a wildcard
