The New York Giants are the most confident team in America. Considering they are two days removed from winning their second Super Bowl in four years, they have every right to be. In fact, they were just as confident leading up to the game and managed to back up every bit of their trash talk. The G-Men are enjoying their huge win over the Patriots this week, but that hasn’t stopped them from already thinking repeat.

“The big thing for us is to get one next year,” linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said according to the NY Post. “We had a great season a couple years ago, and we had a letdown the year after. We’ve got to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”

Is Tom Coughlin’s job safe now? Since we’re talking about New York, probably not. No one is really ever safe. Coughlin should be able to coach as long as he pleases, however, regardless of how well or poorly the Giants start off the year.  The Giants are so confident that despite making the playoffs after starting out 7-7, blowing out the Packers at Lambeau Field, and knocking off the Patriots in the Super Bowl, defensive tackle Linval Joseph believes their best football lies ahead.

“Actually we won the game, but I still don’t feel like we played our best game yet this whole season,” Joseph said. “I feel like next year is going to be a good year. Just everybody stays focused and everybody stays hungry, and I think we should have a good season next year, too.”

Many of the Giants’ games this year were not their best, but they did enough when it mattered to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Repeating as champion is one of the hardest things to do in sports, but if New York can limit their mental lapses next season and Eli Manning continues to improve, they have every right to feel great about their chances of winning another ring with this roster.
