    When looking at the second half of the season (after the bye week), the Giants will have NO film to watch of the Patriots playing in anything more than 45 degree temperatures.

    Since that same week 9, the Giants have played in domes in Detroit, Dallas and a seasonably warm day in Tampa.

    If Josh McDaniels truly is Head Coaching material, this could be his big moment.

    Bill has 2 weeks to prepare for a team he already prepared for 3 games ago. I can't see this as anything other than a huge advantage for the pats.

    Not only that, but BB will be looking at film of the Giants schemes AGAINST the Pats schemes from THREE WEEKS AGO. (Not to mention the healthy OL-Kyle Brady factor.)

    All of what you said AND the Pats were fairly vanilla in their coverages that game. They did some pretty straight forward blitzing late (as opposed to the "exotic schemes" they sometimes come up with) and got pressure on Manning.

    Show the Giants the same look, but then hit them with something they aren't ready for.

    Yes, Kyle, Neal and Kazcur. That's the entire right side.

    If you consider in game adjustments, yesterday's was brilliant. The vertical passing game isn't working, so they shift to a 3 TE package and run it to death. If it was McDaniels, he deserves boatloads of credit for it which I haven't seen mentioned today.
    Many coaches fail at it and you need only look at the first Eagles- Giants game. The Eagles had a rookie left tackle making his first start versus Osi who ate him alive for 6 sacks. You'd think that after the first say 3 or 4, they would have given him help with a TE or RB but.......no ingame adjustment and McNabb got sacked 12 times....

    Two weeks between games almost always favors the best team.

    Good point. Which may be one of the reasons the Pats upset the Rams in SB 36.

    Um...these were two of the handful of SBs in which there was only one week between the CCG and SB. The original point still stands, though.
