    Despite Their Struggles, Saints Will Not Be A Brees For Giants

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1214443

    Excerpt: "If the Giants were hoping to catch any sort of a break against a struggling New Orleans Saints team on Sunday, Drew Brees made it clear they can forget it.

    He’s coming off an ugly five-interception performance last Thursday night and he’ll have had more than a week to brood about that.

    “Everything that happened is correctable, and I can fix it,” Brees said on a conference call with the New York media on Wednesday. “Also know this: I’m not losing any confidence.”

    In other words, the Giants can expect the same, dangerous Brees and the same, high-powered Saints offense that most teams have gotten this season.

    That means the Giants’ sometimes struggling offense is going to have to score points. Maybe even a lot.

    The good news is the champs are confident they can, despite their unexpected, penalty-plagued performance in Washington on Monday night where they stalled completely in the second half and meekly fell, 17-16. The Giants (7-5) know that won’t be good enough against the Saints (5-7) at the Meadowlands on Sunday.

    But despite their issues, they still feel like they can win a shootout with anyone.

    “I feel confident in our offense, that we can go score, that we can move the ball whether we’re running it or throwing it,” Eli Manning said. “We can be a high-powered offense and score a lot of points if that’s what the game calls for.” Read more...

    The ISSUE is, the GMen have to get out of that STOOP-ER their in, and play Like they are capable of.







    There’s always somebody saying the Giants can’t do it, and those people have to be ignored.

    Never underestimate the GIANTS !

    The Saints D should be a good remedy for our anemic offense of late.

    The Saints O is more than a handful. Hopefully, Brees won't correct his interception problem this week. We need the Defense to play like they are capable of playing. Play like World Champions!!!

    Yeah well the offense should have feasted on the Washington secondary but they didn't so we will see how this pans out.

    The Saints' D has been playing a bit better of late, take the averaged out ranking with a grain of salt.

    that team just has our number. just like we are in the heads of GB, SF and NE. Philly and NO have been a thorn in our sides for a long long time. Hopefully we buck the trend this weekend. if not we may be having to come to terms with the fact that the 2012 giants may not be defending their title in Jan. Im not saying at 7-6 we would be out of it by any sense but to start 6-2 and already be only 1-3 in 2nd half and drop to 1-4 for this seasons 2nd half we would only be 1 game away from the exact fate from last year dropping 5of6 after the 6-2 start to fall to 7-7. We won it at 9-7 last year. I dont know if that will be good enough this time around with dallas and Skins breathing down our necks. we will have to have a lot of help this time around to get in playoffs where last time coming into the last two games vs jets and dallas we still had destiny in our own hands. i am thinking if we drop the next 2 we wont be controling anything and will need skins and dallas to lose games over final two weeks
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    I hope KP can play. The 3 safety look should work well to counter the Saints offense. Worked against the Packers.

    It would also be nice to get Williams on the field before mini-camp.

    The Giants SHOULD have their way with the Saints defense. They can't stop the run, they can't contain WRs and the don't rush the QB well. It depends on which Giants team shows up on Sunday; the team that pays attention to detail and executes, or the one that plays sloppy?

    Brees should recover from that bad game last week. But the game is outdoors and it's suppose to be cold and in the low 40's om Sunday. That will affect them a lot IMO.

    giants coaching staff blew it in both games this season where we could of won. THey blew it against philly by trying that long pass instead of just setting up for winning FG try. Which is odd considering the giants usually always play close to the vest and dont take un nescessary chances. Then this past weekend in Washington they again blew it by having manning only throw 11 times vs that horrible defense in 2nd half. We could of ripped that secondary apart had we kept throwing
