I just saw another comparison to the 2007 team during the halftime of the cotton bowl. It is being way overplayed.
Even though the 2007 team was erratic at times, after the first two weeks the defense was pretty solid. I don't put much stock in this 2011 D. It's just as likely to give up 40 then it is to give up 20.
I think they should win this Sunday, but if I had to bet on the game I'd be really nervous about which defense showed up.
I've heard this comparison to the 2007 team entirely too much from the media, Fox and worst of all the Giant players. I hope they dont come into this game thinking this run is going to be easy, because it's so similar to 2007, if they do they are cleaning out their lockers on Monday.
Coughlin said it best, "shut up and play"
Don't expect this off season to mirror 2007, this one is going to be a much harder run, if we're going to make it
