Undressed



For the third time in as many games this postseason a QB making his first playoff start lost to a QB with playoff experience. This isn't a coincidence. And with the defense featuring several players who weren't even in the league at the beginning of the season, the Giants were seemingly never in this one, despite being only down one score with a minute and a half left in the second quarter. I'd like to be able to appreciate this season for the surprising success it was, and claim next season as "our time," but the schedule looks pretty brutal next year (non-division games against the Colts, Seahawks, Panthers, Bears, Bucs, Falcons, Jaguars) and I can't help but feel like we wasted a huge opportunity to hack our way through a shitty NFC.

You guys got exposed...it's as simple as that. No points, not even a field goal, how can you not even score a field goal...the bears put up 13 against this very same defense. I guess this shows that the Giants just were overachievers.

Shut the fuck up. It shows that the Giants were really fucking depleted, forcing Eli to make plays he's not yet ready to make. Everyone knew this wasn't a good matchup for the Giants. Give me the Bucs or Skins any day of the week. This team UNDERACHIEVED. We moved up and down on the vauted Seahawks only to be thwarted by Feeley's chokejob. Had we won that game we would've rested this week, giving Pierce and co. more time to heal. The Giants you witnessed today bore no resemblance to the Giants who won 11 games this year.

I don't really know why you'd comment on something you clearly know nothing about, especially if you're just going to pile on after a loss that saw the season come to an end for half of this blog. I'm now left with no choice but to churn out 7 posts chronicling the Bears demise. By all means, get over-confident about playing these Panthers. They won twice on the road as an underdog in 2003 on route to making the Superbowl. There's no reason to think they can't do it again.

My response of "you got exposed" was a reference to what greg said after the bears lost 21-9 to pittsburgh earlier this year. You can find good in this game all you want, but the final score, 23-0, tells the story. The score must say something about this team. It sums up the season: this team wasn't all that good. Considering you are supposed to play your best football when it counts, this team didn't show up. Go ahead, explain to me that the giants should have won the game if not for...
