Taking about the confidence this team has right now (he wtill is out there with the team even though he has been on IR), just said on ESPN radio that "The Giants already won this game, they just have to go out there and bust butts."
Sounds to me like this team has ALL THE CONFIDENCE in the world they will put a beatdown on the Pats. It doesnt mean they are taking them lightly. They know it will be a tough fought game and the Pats will come out swinging. BUT they feel like if they play the way they can, they will 100% undoubtedly win this game. Thats the confidence level coming out from this team now.
So they better win. If they dont, it will look pretty bad.
But the way they have been playing, I expect them to kick some butt.
