Giants Cowboys

Ralph Vacchiano writes that Tiki is ready to continue carrying the load (he gains 40% of the Giants’ yards). The media people down in Dallas know they have to stop Tiki with a 20th ranked run defense (subscription). They could put eight guys in the box but that would expose their 17th ranked pass defense.

Somehow, the Cowboys are pretty confident, as they used the bye to break in some new players. Still it seems that the Giants might be able to take advantage of the cornerback situation:

Seventh-round pick Jacques Reeves will start in place of Pete Hunter at right cornerback. Veteran Tyrone Williams was signed last week and is likely to play, but Parcells needs to see him more in practice before deciding how he’ll be used. Parcells is considering dressing five cornerbacks Sunday: three rookies, second-year starter Terence Newman and Williams.

The changes at both positions affect everything from the running game to blitz calls. Those are the kind of uncertainties that make Parcells’ stomach churn.

“We’re going to have some growing pains,” he said. “There’s going to be things that happen you wish wouldn’t happen but that’s what we are right now.

Paul Schwartz is confident that Coughlin will have the Giants ready, so what we should see is two well prepared teams taking the field. The Cowboys feel they need to prove themselves. Looking at statisitcs, the Giants have a better team. Troy Aikman doesn’t go so far as saying that BIg Blue will win, but he seems to be leaning that way. He gives props to Will Allen and Will Peterson, who will have to come up big against the Cowboys who have the #2 passing attack in the league. I trust our defense to play well against Testaverde if they can do it against Farve. I trust our offense to gain yards. What makes me nervous is that our offense hasn’t been getting the job done in the red zone. We need to put points on the board.
