I don't have a problem with people picking the Giants to win. I really don't. Any given Sunday, matchups, and all that. But the logic that people are using to make their picks is just mind-numbingly idiotic. "The Giants have won five straight. They have the momentum." NE has won ten straight. "Defense wins championships." NE gave up 3+ points less a game. "The Giants D is more likely to stop that Pats O than the other way around." See previous point, and then factor in that NE scored over 8 points more a game. "The Giants are a more complete team." NE point differential: 173; NY point differential: -6. NE turnovers: +17; NY +7. "The Giants have a fearsome pass rush, and will overwhelm NE's line." NY had 48 sacks (NE only had 40). NE has played Denver (41 sacks) and Baltimore (48, tied with NY) and given up a whopping total of one sack. "Bradshaw and Jacobs will run all over NE." NY had the worst rushing attack in the league. The worst in both total yards and ypc. NE held Baltimore's #10 rushing offense to 3.7 yds/carry, and held Denver's #1 rushing offense to 3.6 yds/carry. "The Giants are healthy." For once, so is NE. "Eli was great against the 49ers, and Brady was terrible against Baltimore." Brady threw two balls that took incredible efforts to pick off; Eli threw two balls that SF actually knocked away from itself. Brady led five scoring drives for 23 points (none off of turnovers) against Baltimore in regulation; Eli led two scoring drives for 10 points including OT, and was gifted two short fields by gaffes by an idiotic backup PR that led to 10 points, including the gamewinner. I mean, come on.
