    Excellent points, except I'm not one to diss the refs, it is what it is, and  disagree about Eli.

    I was never a big Eli fan, and while improved this yr, he still capable of the bonehead play; but this yr he was off the charts, and was at WORST the 5th best QB this yr. Also, somehow, he's more accurate than he used to be.

    Agree. Giants are peaking at the right time, as they did in 07'. I think they beat GB this weekend. Their front 4 are just scary, and I like their trio of receivers as much as any in the league. Add a 6'5", 265lb RB in Jacobs and a couple of decent TEs, and they are a tough team to beat.

    A part of me wants to face them in the SB again. This time around, it's different. No more miracles on ice. Brady comes to destroy.

    Re: GIANTS could be dangerous for anyone in the playoffs.

    Tell'ya something that The Giants do just INFINITELY better than NE as of late...  They work the very last 1 or 2 Rounds of the Draft & Their FO gets on the phone immediately in their efforts to woo the very best UDFAs.  In both instances, NY targets the very best & most talented draftees whom slipped a mile down draft boards due to circumstances such as:  Specific player dealing with recent injury during his last collegiate year, Draftees who play positions which were targeted much less than other spots in any given draft year due to large-scale runs at these other positions, etc..  

    What they do in these 6th, 7th rds, and UDFAs, Is currently what I'm making plans to go to jail for, upon me branding this on My favorite Coach of all-time's forehead:  You don't waste your 6th and 7th rders (or in BB's case in many recent years, 5th Rders too), by selecting absolute and total NOBODIES whom 99.99% of the time at least in these cases, Will NOT be selected by anyone.  Players that IF they weren't actually ever picked by BB in the first place, would still be available if ya called them 3 weeks after the draft, Because that'd be the only phone call they got.  Guys whom after their names are selected in the 6th and 7th (or 5th), The SI.com Draft Page says the following about:  

    Malcolm Williams
    Round 7, Pick 219
    Position: CB
    Class: -
    School: TCU
         
    ~Ya know, It's not just that these are guys that every single draft site on the web never even imagined that they'd need a set of "Pros" and "Cons" about....  No.  It's that, NOONE even bothered to acquire their height or weight.  When the grading scale at ANY time says either 1.00 or N/A, it's their way of saying: "No...He wasn't good enough for us to grant him a target Round of "7th/UDFA", or even just an "UDFA" alone.


    Here's NY:

    TE Jake Ballard UDFA 2010
    WR Victor Cruz UDFA 2010
    OLB Mark Herzlich UDFA 2011
    FB Henry Hynoski UDFA 2011
    ILB Greg Jones 6th Round (#20) 2011
    S Tyler Sash 6th Round (Comp Pick-#33) 2011
    RB Da'Rel Scott 7th Round (#18) 2011
    DE Justin Trattou UDFA 2011
    LB Jacquian Williams 6th Round (Comp Pick-#37) 2011

    Wanna know how many of these guys us draft-nuts heard of?  A:  ALL of them.  Pretty decent 6th+7th Round and UDFA haul in 2 Draft years.

    as you are saying indirectly what i say directly. we are doomed to mediocrity in drafts(or slightly above avg) as bb is not giving power up. kraft is afraid to even discuss with bb the subject of sharing the draft power / revamping the draft team. they are worried about cassario leaving.
       well it's clear our whole draft team down to the scouts need to be evaluated and or changed. for starters we need a real gm, and one of the top gms in the game. theres no reason with an org like ours that we could not draw them.
    bb wouldnt take the slight of sharing with a gm, the draft, never mind even an evaluation of the system.
        thanks for such a good case in point evaluation of how we could improve. most on this board will not admit something of ours that is not the best, however the first step to improvement is a willingness to evaluate yourself objectively; something bb teaches to his team adn does every day. it just is not happening deeply enough re our draft team from top to bottom.

    The Giants are a team that can win against any team...  That defense is no joke, but look what happened to the number 1 defense against Denver.  So...all that said, don't sleep on GB.  Those guys have probably heard enough about how great the Saints are...and how great the Giants are playing defensively.  Don't be surprised if you see them open up a can and never let off the gas.

    Back to the Giants though...I will not be sad if and when they get bounced.  They got hurt A LOT early in the season...so they've been able to have their 2011 core gel a lot sooner.  Now they're playing great at the right time...and getting healthy.

    NFC is tough this year...tough defense with the 49ers, high flying offense with GB and NO...perhaps the Giants are the most balanced?  Uh oh...

    Re: GIANTS could be dangerous for anyone in the playoffs.

    the Giants are a WEIRD matchup - their run game only works against hapless teams coached by Mike Smith and the likes and they have few linebackers, one safety, and one corner

    IF you can block their ridiculously deep 6-7-man-rotation defensive line and you can force Eli Manning into long drives instead of big plays, you can beat them.  You HAVE TO let Ballard have a big day.  Ballard simply isn't dynamic enough to win games for you.  Take away big plays, gang tackle, and force Ballard to beat you because he won't.  He's a 4th or 5th banana if I ever saw one.

    I don't think Green Bay's beat up line will fare too well this Sunday.  They've lost two more guys since they last met.  the Giants are one of few teams who can get to Rodgers in the 2.5 second window before his incredibly quick release time

    I do think the Saints' Pro Bowl line will block them well.  Bushrod and De La Puenta are both very good linemen, and that's not even including Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks, who BOTH made First Team All-Pro.  Strief is their one Achilles heel, but he can be planned for as long as the other four hold up, which they almost always do.

    We'll see

    Lmao... Shenanigan, not only are you trying to paint the reality in 1 single brushstroke for everyone, but you're attempting to formulate a reality for every one that has any interest in The NFL Draft (great or small), based on your own moderate knowledge & limited time, love, and experience in following The Draft.  It's like me seeing a Chemist measure liquids and powders into a solution, and concluding, "Ehh, anyone can do that garbage. Trial and error, nothin' more; lil'a this and a lil' a'that. Whatever chemicals are on the table, no rhyme or reason... Just mixin'a buncha random compounds together a million times over until you stumble across some successful recipe combo, That's All."

    And I ain't tryin' to be rude to you, beacuse I can see how you got there:  You see people making Draft Threads on why NE "HAS to Draft the next super-star Safety, Taylor Mays!"  They've gone on the same draft site 3X that year, and came away fully convinced in their thorough knowledge on Taylor Mays being a 10 year All-Pro based on what a physical and athletic freak he looked to be for the Safety Position.  Then 10 Months later they come back and say, "I told ya! EVERY single player who didn't pan out for New England, were guys whom I said were 'busts' on Day 1...  Geez, I wish Belichick would listen to me more, b/c I stated at the very moment that Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo, Aaron Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady, Logan Mankins, Deion Branch, were ALL awesome! Shawn Crable, Taylor Price, Chad Jackson, David Thomas, Kevin O'Connel, Brandon Tate, Darius Butler=Said they'd fail 1 minute after the selection... Man, sure wish Bill Belichick drafted the guy I wanted: <pause to go on NFL.com, Then- Insert name of rookie leader in any given 1st year category />.

    This is a great thread b/c inadevertantly most of us are all saying the same thing: we like the Giants b/c they remind us of the Pats or how the Pats used to be: gritty, never give-up, hard-working, selfless and team oriented. In fact, the Pats/Giants model is a metaphor for the USA in general up to 1950. We were a country that displayed selfless qualities and put ideals above individual gain. We were willing to fight the great battle for the sake of moral courage. Somewhere along the line we lost that country. Perhaps, it was when Kennedy was assasinated and we got caught in a long meaningless war in Vietnam that was followed up by the Watergate Scandal in Washington that many people lost their belief. Numerous Wall street scandals and government duplicity have only furthered mistrust.  In any case, I know all long to believe that hard work and selfless behavior pays off in the end. I know this is something we all aspire to.

    In response to "Re: GIANTS could be dangerous for anyone in the playoffs.": [QUOTE]In Response to Re: GIANTS could be dangerous for anyone in the playoffs. : Lmao... Shenanigan , not only are you trying to paint the reality in 1 single brushstroke for everyone, but you're attempting to formulate a reality for every one that has any interest in The NFL Draft (great or small), based on your own moderate knowledge & limited time, love, and experience in following The Draft.  It's like me seeing a Chemist measure liquids and powders into a solution, and concluding, "Ehh, anyone can do that garbage. Trial and error, nothin' more; lil'a this and a lil' a'that. Whatever chemicals are on the table, no rhyme or reason... Just mixin'a buncha random compounds together a million times over until you stumble across some successful recipe combo, That's All." And I ain't tryin' to be rude to you, beacuse I can see how you got there:  You see people making Draft Threads on why NE "HAS to Draft the next super-star Safety, Taylor Mays!"  They've gone on the same draft site 3X that year, and came away fully convinced in their thorough knowledge on Taylor Mays being a 10 year All-Pro based on what a physical and athletic freak he looked to be for the Safety Position.  Then 10 Months later they come back and say, "I told ya! EVERY single player who didn't pan out for New England, were guys whom I said were 'busts' on Day 1...  Geez, I wish Belichick would listen to me more, b/c I stated at the very moment that Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo, Aaron Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady, Logan Mankins, Deion Branch, were ALL awesome! Shawn Crable, Taylor Price, Chad Jackson, David Thomas, Kevin O'Connel, Brandon Tate, Darius Butler=Said they'd fail 1 minute after the selection... Man, sure wish Bill Belichick drafted the guy I wanted: .       Posted by LazarusintheSanatorium[/QUOTE] You're right, I have no business questioning you. That would be as crazy as some amateur who scours the Internet for draft reports questioning the greatest coach alive, or the wisdom of the NFL scouting departments who employ hundreds of paid professionals and watch thousands of hours of game tape and write scouting reports.
