[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Week Six NFL Picks, and "Game of the Week" : First off all, Bolted-On-Head , the Giants last year started 5-1 against similarly weak opponents, people said the same inane nonsense and then suddenly they were 11-1, beating the SB champs in Pittsburgh, Arizona, Philly and Baltimore and suddenly...no more questions. Except for the fact that the 11-1 start meant absolutely nothing when the playoffs commenced and your boys lost in their first postseason game scoring NO TDs.
See, Bolted-On-Head , not only can you only play who is on your weak
schedule and when they are on your weak
schedule, but the argument that quality of opponents equals a teams ability is specious at best unless of course you want your team to be really battle tested
and usually the refuge of simple minds (see a mirror), based not only on last years Giants season-and umpteen seasons since the beginning of time-but on the overlooked fact that the Giants have won all those games and the last two handily-which, is, of course the mark of a good team beating who they should. Only if the Giants lost or struggled mightily in these games would your simpleton logic matter. As things stand now, of course, it doesn't. Sure it does, your team's 5 opponents have won 6 games. The lowest number in NFL. Therefore, your Giants, due to the pansy schedule thus far cannot be used as an accurate barometer of success. I dont expect you to get this though, after all, you are a Big blue homer
You also forget, Bolted-On-Head , that a teams reputation proceeds all these arguments. Exactly, and everybody here does not think much of your QB that cant string a sentence together, nor his overrated team
Henceforth, when a cinderalla or unknown or previously bad team suddenly does this, you can cite weak opponents to explain the unexpected. Since the Giants are one year removed from a SB Championship and-get ready, BOH -are 21-4 Figures, you forgot the playoff loss last year, 21-5. You know the one where your team got rolled 23-11, at home no less, and to DIV rival PHI. So actually the Giants are 20-5
in their last 25 games incluing that playoff run, methinks they get a wee bit of the benefit of the doubt as to the quality of the team over any "quality of opponent" opines (whines). Lastly, Bolted-On-Head , as to your SB non-points and silly selective memory and logic, I only talk SB with fans of a team that has won one before. The Dolts merely played in one and got their ever loving A** KICKED up, down and sideways and were embarrassed off the field. So, obviously, since you and the Dolts are so severely limited in SB matters , I wil not lower myself to your loser status to discuss this. But, hey, I can see why a Dolts fan would be so envious of teams like the Giants and Patriots. If I were a Dolts fan I would be too.
