The tables have turned, and New York Giants fans are savoring the new ambience... Here's a direct quote from Andy Furman over at Ultimate NYG.com: "It was frankly embarrassing to witness the Giants get undressed by good teams (ovet the past few years). Thankfully that is in the past.  Now that the Giants are making strides, all they need to do is close out some more games, improve the level of their play and beat Dallas.  There is an opportunity here in 2011.  Let's see this team beat a Philly team next Sunday night, end the Eagles' season and continue ours."There's a lot going on in that quote.  After a tough 27-20 loss to the 49ers last week, the Giants sit at 6-3... but subconsciously their fans are still somewhat conditioned by tough losses to Eagles teams of the past decade, and I sense a concern among G-Men advocates that killing off the Eagles on Sunday Night Football is a MUST DO for the Giants to erase all lingering doubts for their shot at a division title. Memories of sce...

  • The G-men will not close out games if they continue to beat themselves. Manningham is a very good receiver, but I'd like to see him play smarter at times. His decision to break off his route led to a Manning interception and an eventual 49er TD.

    I don't necessarily like Gilbride's play calling. In last Sunday's final drive, I would have liked to see the Giants get the first down, then get additional chances to score the TD.

    To win the NFC East, they must beat Dallas twice, and follow through with wins over the Redskins, Eagles and Jets to have a legitimate chance.

    Given the current state of the Giant running game, I'm going to say this: The Giants should swallow their pride and bring back Tiki Barber for the remaining 7 games. I just feel that despite his layoff, he can still contribute to a medicore running game.
    As it stands now, they don't have a runner who can break it off to the outside. Tiki can do that.
