    If we win on Sunday, we will set an NFL Record...

    This is pretty cool, I read this the other day on my mobile app, and just found the link on the site:

    http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Inside-the-Numbers-Giants-vs-Cowboys/d73fdb91-2b0b-477b-8789-bbd719757c9b


    If we win the Division, it will be the NFL Leading 23rd time that a team has won their division.

    If we lose it will create a 4-way tie for first place with 22.

    Check out the article - it is pretty cool.

    Here is to number 23!

    yea , but most of that was before the AFL/NFL
    merger, and 80% of the current fan base were even born.

    ummm what counts as a first place finish?

    Seriously, how is this right? The Giants have 15 division titles since 1933? Or am I missing something...

    Well hell, 23 is one of my favorite numbers. That's gotta count for something, right?

    Another "record" that will be achieved no matter who wins Sunday night is that this will be the first time since the merger that the East will be won by a team with fewer than 10 wins.

    You are probably missing quite a bit.

    Re-Read the article, or read it and absorb it if you have not done so. It is pretty self explanatory.

    The point of the article is that the GIANTS have been a pretty successful franchise since their inception. Right up there with the Bears and Packers.

    Dallas had hardly any competition for the Division in the 60s and 70s, so their achievement that took about half the time as the GIANTS/Bears/Packers is a testament to the greatness of Landry/Schramm/Brandt.

    Does that sum it up for you?

    Ya - it is not common to take a division with 8 or 9 wins, but it is still surprising that it has never happened before in the NFC East. It was definitely a down year for our division. It will be interesting to see what next year brings.
