Giants hopes

Terry Bradshaw is eating his words. Bob Glauber writes that Coughlin is too modest. Kimberly Jones says that winning (and not being laughed at) has made the Giants look prouder. The Giants players all seem to believe they can win on any given Sunday. Ron Borges has the Giants on his list of contenders but not in the same league as the Patriots or Eagles. Warner and the offense get some credit for gaining 400 yards, but mostly credit goes to the defense:

New York’s defense has been producing turnovers at a furious rate, but this time they turned over Brett Favre himself. They left him feeling like Oscar De La Hoya felt two weeks ago after being knocked out by Bernard Hopkins.

Favre was on his knees, then on his back, and finally on the bench after a crushing hit left him wondering why he was hearing an ice cream truck bell behind him. The ringing didn’t stop long enough for him to save the 1-3 Packers. The Giants may be mad at Coughlin and his encyclopedic rulebook, but on Sundays they band together and make their opponents pay for whatever grief they had to put up with all week from the cranky coach.

I don’t know the extent of Farve’s injury, but Warner says that after the game Farve couldn’t remember the TD he threw.

John Altavilla also sees reason to hope as he reviews the positives from the Giants Packers game. The Giants should ahve scored more points against a depleted Packers defense, and they would have if Steve Christie had one his job. Neil Best’s blue notes are worth reading too. Dayne had 9 carries for 23 yards. Mike Cloud was active and returned a punt for 23 yards…

    Thanks for all the linking. I may be stuck in Texas, far away from my favorite team but at least all the effort to watch them hasn’t been a waste of time.

    I’m still disturbed at the lack of a killer instinct, but that will come with time… and confidence.

    Discussing Giants news is my pleasure. Thanks for the comment. As for the killer instinct, we certainly need some of that, especially on offense.
