It is simply ludicrous to me to make that statement. You can say they are a wild card team to make it to the SB. ---They cannot be any 'hotter' than any wild card team to make the SB. Before winning their 3 CLOSE playoff games, they lost their last game of the year. How about we tell it as it really is. The Giants had a regular season that would give them no business being in the SB. They won their playoff games to get to the SB. If the Giants are "Hot" then every team to ever play in a SB was "Hot". Somehow, the idea of being on a hot streak has become the euphamism for "Surprisingly they made it through the weak NFC because at the start of the playoffs they appeared to stand no chance to even beat those teams".
