    Saints chances of winning

    I say slim to none

    Their defense isnt good, their offense masks their defensive woes I think. 31-27 Giants

    I think the NO defense has been coming around lately, they certainly did well against ATL. But that isn't the real challenge, it is keeping up with Brees and that depends on what players show up. We have seen the Giants D frustrate great QBs while making mediocre offenses look like the greatest show on turf. The defense isn't my biggest concern however, it is the offense. We know what to expect from the defense. They will make some great plays and they will give up some huge plays. What really matters is if Eli can match Brees. On a good day, I say yes... on a day like 5 of the last 6 games... I say no.

    That being said, the Giants have a tendency to show up when they must... the question is do they feel like they have to this week or next?
    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...

    Unfortunately, the issue is we canít keep up with their offense.

    this means nothing,,washingtons secondary is on pace to give the most passing yards in NFL history yet we only passed 11 times in the second half. the playcalling needs to be better,,the run defense needs to be a lot better, and most importantly,,we need to show up,,not just be on the feild.

    exactly! We are once again going against a high octane offense so hopefully our D plays as they did vs GB & KG calls a good game. And hopefully the dumb penalties/mistakes are eliminated

    Yeah they're defense sucks but it won't be nothing if the coaches don't plan to take advantage of it. The Redskins pass defense sucks but we stuck with running even though it wasn't working anymore.

    while brees will we scoring TDs, Tynes will be kicking FGs, and you can't win with that,

    also, some teams just have other teams number. Like we own NE, GB and to a certain extent SF. We-are in the heads of those teams. Because of our dominance over them we play with more confidence and they play more tentative. By the same token philly and the Saints have our number. It's just the way it is
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Hoping it's a lot more one sided than that. Here;s what I posted on another thread:

    My ideal game vs. the Saints would be a beatdown similar to the one the Gmen administered in SF to the smack talking overconfident Niners. Say 26-3 with no trips inside the read zone. No wait, how about no trips to the Gmen side of the 50 yd line. Throw in a couple of pick 6's with sacks and Brees knockdowns too.


    Then, in the post game press conference, when reporters ask TC why the Gmen didn't score more points, choosing instead to run out the clock by running the ball, he can look at the camera and say that running up the score when the outcome has already been decided is not something he believes in and is not the Giants way. The message to the front running Saints would be crystal clear. The added bonus would be effectively knocking the Who Dats out of the playoffs.

    You know before bounty gate, Sean Payton and crew were looking to be the 1st SB team to play the game in their own building. I'd love for the Gmen to smack them down and end that dream.

    Here's hoping.
