In Response to Re: GIANTS could be dangerous for anyone in the playoffs.
Good thread here, bredbru ... Wanted to start a Giants thread early yesterday, but couldn't summon the great effort. The Giants/Green Bay game earlier this year, showed how nice the G-Men are playing this season. They looked SERIOUS early on in that match-up, before the refs took over. Same thing this last game, It looked like the only official NOT being paid off was the one who spots the ball at the end of each play (who was dead-on perfect/non-biased imho in his officiating). RE: The NY Giants and in terms of my loyalty as a Pats Fan, I gotta say (said this earlier in the year too): The Giants could theoretically beat NE, in the SB, after The Pats went 16-0...for 10 straight seasons...losing that final game each and every single season...TO The Giants= And I'd still hate The Jets 1000X more. Ain't got nothing against The Giants Org.. Sorry, if that means I'm a disloyal Pats Fan, whatever. I like The Giants in the same semblance that I like The Steelers and my own team, NE...they're tough, blue-collar, and more often than not-they Sh#tTF-U and do their talkin' on the field. Neither one of these 3 teams loudly searches for headlines. You can name a million things about The NY Giants, and I'd say to you that I liked each and every one of these team traits, Save for just 2: Eli Manning and the fact that they breath the same stadium air as The Jets. Last one needs no explanation, but Eli Manning does... Manning's a good, above-average NFL QB...it's just- well, he's st#p#d. He's got the same passer pocket shiftiness and tackle-breaking ability as Ben Roethlisberger...but Eli's much less accurate, and (and here's the issue)- You can almost guarentee that Manning WILL do something- try to push 1 or 2 plays well past the point of reckless & d#mb, In EVERY single game. Painful really, the amount of times 1 QB on Offense in charge of putting points on YOUR side, will suddenly and with no warning, singlehandedly be responsible for the entire momentum to shift towards the oppossing team, upon Eli doing something plain old id#ot#c. RE: NY Giants Defense... I'm actually surprised that in this copycat league, More Teams don't use The Giants blueprint for their own defenses (even in part). LOVE their look. They get FREAKS at Defensive End: 6'5-6'6 and @ 280lbs. Same deal at DT in their 4-man line: 6'3-6'5 and around 300lbs. And here's the cool thing of what they get in terms of personell in their 4-3 D's front 7. Now, they just bank on keeping pure quick-twitch monster Top 15 Draft Freaks of nature at DE. IF they do at all, NY forsakes overall weight just barely though at 4-3 DE...again=Quick twitch Sasquatches with range. It's NY's DTs and OLBs that ARE seemingly strangely (yet complimentary) different in NY's brand of 4-3. DTs are taller, more cut, and less bulky (opposed to most gap-shooting big boy DTs in most 4-3's). Same with NY's OLBs. No 6'1-6'2/6'3 and 250-255lb usual 4-3 OLBs...again, it always looks like NY goes for sleekness, overall size (height and true muscle), and range/length. They target guys who are just a bit too light to be trully acceptable 3-4 OLBs (and maybe 1-2 inches shorter), by getting 6'4 guys whom are around 245lbs or so. Cool thing is, NY makes up for the weight-loss in their DTs and OLBs, by first using those "look like frankenstein, but run like a deer" DEs, AND by targeting bigger CBs (again=Rangier). 6'0-6'1 and 190-200lbs for their CBs-Overall, bigger, fuller, and tougher in height and in weight too. Giants D is gonna be scary for a REALLY long time. Exceptionally young, exceptionally athletic, and very sound defense with almost zero big positionally weak holes. Next year they'll even get a free #1-#2 draft ranked CB for free, seeing as how Prince Amukumara lost almost this whole season (I thought he was actually a little more complete CB than LSU's Patrick Peterson with much, Much more upside than Colorado's Jimmy Smith in the 2011 Draft Class of CBs.
