They Might Be Giants

It looks like the Three 6 Mafia aren't the only ones sippin' on the syrup. The New York Giants are making all of the headlines in the NFL this week, with expert after expert proclaiming their greatness. I know the Patriots are on a bye, but is this the only story in the NFL? You can go here, here, or anywhere else where highly paid football prognosticators can be found to read articles that are so far in front of the bandwagon that eventually they will be run over. You will not, however, find it here. I have seen this all before. As Dr. Frank-N-Furter would want, let's do the time warp again.

2006: After starting 6-2, the Giants lost their next four games, finishing the season 8-8 and losing in the first round of the playoffs.
2005: After starting 6-2, The Giants finish 11-5, losing 23-0 in the first round of the playoffs.
2004: After starting 6-2, The Giants lose their next eight games, finishing the season 6-10, missing the playoffs.

The Giants are 6-2. Their six game winning streak has been against Washington, Philly, NY Jets, Atlanta, San Francisco and Miami. Those teams are a whopping 11-36. Don't listen to me, THIS IS THE YEAR! Oh, I'm sure it is. The only good teams the Giants have faced this year are Dallas and Green Bay, their only two losses, in which they lost by a combined score of 48-80. Don't listen to me, THIS IS THE YEAR!

I don't know why everybody is so high on Tom Coughlin's squad, a team that starts off on fire every single year and always fizzles down the stretch. That is what this team does. So what is making everybody guzzle down the love potion and causing all the monkeys to go bananas? Boredom, more than likely. The 2007 season is lamer than Barry Manilow right now, so why not make up a non-story about how the Giants are going to be different this year and how Manning #2 is finally becoming the leader we thought he was coming out of college (which is 1/10 the leader his brother is)?

Sorry, I'm not buying it. If the Giants somehow figure out how to play a sixteen game schedule, more power to them, but I'm not guaranteeing anything until they show me otherwise. If they walk like Giants, talk like Giants and look like Giants, then hey, they just might be Giants after all.

this game is going to be like an a reality check... I understand what your saying because ESPN is quick to jump on teams bandwagon if they have one good week and the giants haven't lost in a month and half even though they haven't played much competition. If they win this weekend then you have to give them credit

If they win, then hey, more power to them. I'm just not going to proclaim this is a different team when they are traveling down the same path they have been for the last three years.
