Yes, we will puff up our chests and talk the smack, but in our heart of hearts, we all know that the Giants should win this game. We haven't beaten any opponent all year that would give us hope that our D can shut down a superior offense like the G men.
The wound from SB 2008 was and is still raw, but this time around we all know where we stand, and I think many knowledgeable Pats fans have had time to accept the probability of the inevitable.
In this game, the acres of yardage given up by our sorry *** defense will quickly metamorphosis into points, mostly sevens. I think our offense will do well keeping up for a while, but 2 or 3 3&outs will be the difference.
The only hope we have is the "Any Given Sunday" theory, and that would rely on Manning having a really bad day on the same day our Defense has a really great day, along with Brady- unfortunately, we had that day when we played Denver, and you only get one of those every not so often.
This one will not hurt as much as last time, because for me, I will expect the worst, hope for the best, but ultimately, it's just another game to me, because I have zero emotion invested in what I think the outcome will be.
But it should be a great game none the less.
All Giants fans should know that any NE loss will NEVER, EVER hurt as much as SB Super Bowl XLII.
So, when and if you win this game- congratulations in advance- because it won't hurt that much, really. But, if we do win, then some of the salt will be washed out of that gaping wound.
Sincerest Regards to all Giants Fans-
