I always find it refreshing to read what other writers around the country see when they look at the Giants. Mostly, they get it wrong.  Many times they don’t take into account the intangibles that are not detectable by the naked eye. Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans seems to have done his homework on the Saints’ next opponent – the New York Giants.

Make no mistake: The Giants likely won’t be looking past New Orleans. New York faces the undefeated Green Bay Packers next week, while quarterback Eli Manning tries to fend off the New York media’s ceaseless questions about what’s wrong with the Giants.” On the Giants’ offense: “The relationship Manning has in New York is much the same as it was for his father, Archie, in New ...

Eli Won’t Forget ’09 Thrashing by Saints

from James Varney of the Times-Picayune.. “The New York football Giants strutted to New Orleans in October 2009 undefeated and ready to be crowned the best team in football.

Giants quarterback and New Orleans native Eli Manning...
