not to get ahead of ourselves, but i think as fans we are free to 'look ahead' in thinking about the future of the season. here's a thought that i've been thinking about quite a bit for the past few weeks; as the playoff picture has become more clear. feel free to elaborate and discuss if you wish.
i really believe the giants can beat the cowboys next weekend. i think we are the better team. both defenses have been inconsistent, if not terrible at times. but eli>romo. romo's hand being banged up is just an added advantage.
i like the giants chances being at home against the falcons or lions. either team will be a tough matchup, but giants on a two game winning streak and a proven veteran qb - if i were a betting man i'd take the gmen.
i really think the giants can beat the packers at lambeau. packers kinda remind me of our '08 team. their receiver didn't shoot himself, but he did hurt his leg. the packers proved to be beatable against the chiefs last week. not only that, but we, in my opinion, proved we could beat them in our game a few weeks ago. at this point the giants would be on a three game winning streak and feeling great about themselves. the packers would have a week off, and maybe even been on a bit of a slump going into the playoffs. (that remains to be seen) i just think this has the potential to be a classic one and done for the top seed, and who else but the giants to knock 'em off the top.
nfc championship. i'm hoping we get this far. the season would be a success at this point. it would be wonderful. a dream would be a rematch with the niners at candlestick. a four game winning streak and beating the packers at lambeau would really have this team bELIving. i'm taking eli over smith every time. i think the giants could get it done the second go-round. a bigger more unrealistic dream would be to face either the lions or the falcons at the meadowlands. again, a very tough matchup, but who isn't taking the giants in that scenario?
the nightmare would be having to play the saints at the superdome. i hate this matchup for the giants. but just maybe we could pull it out somehow if we make it that far. we'll see. a lot of ifs, but as the season winds down, it's exciting to think about. there always seems to be a wild card team that goes through the playoffs to the championship every year. why not the giants this year?
super bowl. are you kidding me? this would be more than incredible. giants are on a six game winning streak against the afc. beat the current cream of the crop (record-wise) earlier this season. i like the way we matchup with anyone the afc has to offer. i think baltimore would pose the biggest threat, and pittsburgh just always seems to make **** happen. if we get to the super bowl i'll just be happy to be there, but at that point, you gotta love our shot.
sorry for rambling. if you actually took the time to read all of this, thanks for humoring me. i'm so psyched about the win today, and i can't help but to dream about the near future.
lets go giants! lets roll.
