    Any surprises that they are 2-0? Cincy next week, should be another W. Should the SB hangover have kicked in yet, or will it only kick in if they lose to a legit SB contender, like say the Boys or the Pack:rolleyes:

    The Giants beat a Redskins team under a new coach and new offense and the St. Louis Rams. Let's not annoint them repeat Super Bowl champions yet.

    In other news, I feel really bad for Scott Linehan for some odd reason. You could tell the guy was about to burst into tears in his interview.

    LOL!! Not really "annointing" anyone, but c'mon, these guys are supposed to suffer that hangover. Eli stinks. You know the drill.

    I don't think they will fold. That said they haven't beaten a good team yet. But they're a very good team.

    The Giants have the best coach in the NFC, i expect them to be in Tampa in February, Dallas, maybe GB are the only teams i think that can knock them out.

    they're a good football team and tuck is stepping up to the challenge. Kiwanuka is even a force when he's in the game.

    maybe it's just me, but since when has there been a "hangover" from winning a super bowl? I thought the "curse" was mainly on those who lost it, which would be us...

    I don't see them "folding", but I doubt they'll get back to the Super Bowl. Philly looked damn good Monday night, as did Dallas, meaning the Giants are up for some fierce divisional games yet this year.

    And yes, they're 2-0, but last year they started out 0-2...

    Many fans thought the Giant team would "fold" this season. They thought it was all luck, that Eli really isn't that good.

    Way to go out on a limb to predict they won't make the SBowl. There are 16 teams in the NFC, only one will make it, so it's pretty easy to predict that a team won't make it, you have a 15 out of 16 chance to be right. Many saw a 9-7 year with no playoffs. It could STILL happen, but I like their 3-0 start.

    They'll be 6-0 it looks like (vs Seattle, at Cleve, vs San Fran) heading into their game against Pittsburgh, but beginning with that Pitt game (their 7th) on October 26th, their last 10 include four with Dallas/Philly, at Washington, at Arizona, Carolina, Minnesota, Baltimore, and Pitt. That's a tough stretch of 10 games right there. But if they are in fact 6-0, they will have bought themselves a ton of cushion.

    I think they're a good team. I could see any one of Dallas/Philly/Giants winning the NFC East and getting homefield throughout the playoffs.

    Wow, guess you showed me. :rolleyes:

    Forgive me, I don't make the Vegas odds. Perhaps in the future I can make more emboldened predictions that will come closer to meeting your high quality standards. In the meantime, eat me.

    I'm glad to see the Giants are doing so well so far this year; I feel better losing to them in the Super Bowl now, I thought they were nothing but a lucky ***** team with a horseshoe up their ***** in the playoffs last year and Eli was a total stiff/bust as a QB and nothing more than an overated hick and Coughlin was nothing more than an overated gas bag.

    I am so glad that is not the case.

    It's too early to call. Pats did well in their regular season but failed short in a SB game.

    My sentiment exactly. The Giants seemed to get going when needed last year and appear to have carried that form into the early part of this season.

    The sheer fast is we were a far better team than the Giants last year, except in the two horse race where they did what they needed to do to win and we effectively shot oursevles in the foot with poor play calling and execution.

    My hat is off to them. I am still gutted about the SB loss, yet feel a sense of relief that it was to what I see now as a very very good team.

    Granted the season is quite young, but it's interesting to note how many misses the majority of the media 'experts' have had so far in their predictions. Most dismissed the Giants, Redskins, Bears, Broncos, and Titans. The Browns were going to take over the AFC North and the Rams were going to rebound. The Falcons and Dolphins were still supposed to be terrible, and the Saints were supposed to breeze through the NFC South. And that's not even taking in to consideration teams that were predicted to do well but are down due to injuries, like the Jaguars.

    Back to the original topic, I'm very surprised the Giants have received so little attention. They're based in the media capital, and largest market, New York, yet there's been more talk about the Titans than the defending Super Bowl champs.

    Well, it doesn't look like they're going to fold up the tents anytime soon. And am I in a state of unconciousness or is Eli Manning really one of the best QBs in the NFL right now?

    gimme a break you guys. the giants have not played anyone with a winning record so far. all this talk about the giants becoming the next patriots is BS. We saw sheli and the giants go into OVERTIME to beat the now 0-6 bengals. then they get torched by the browns on MNF. THey'll play the Niners this weekend. Then their schedule gets harder for the rest of the year - Pitt, Dallas, Philly, Dallas, Arizona, Carolina, Washington, Minnesota, to name a few. The giants will go 7-9 or 8-8.

    That thud you heard Monday night was the Giants crashing back to earth; eli looked like his old self (94 yard INT TD, effin priceless) and their schedule gets brutal the further into the season they go as has been already pointed out.

    I heard Giants fans are ripping Eli already; typical New Yorkers, with that effin arrogant sense of entitlement.

    The Giant fans ripping on Eli aren't any worse than 90% of the fans here. Raging ADD.

    "The Giant fans ripping on Eli aren't any worse than 90% of the fans here. Raging ADD."

    Why would you rip on a guy who has led your team to a 4-1 record AND pulled the second biggest upset in Super Bowl history (Jets over Colts is and always will be #1)? You'd think he'd get cut a little slack, but not from the reports I've read and Giant fans I know.

    What are the 90% you refer to ripping on; Cassel? BB? The Defense? Because if they are, you can't seriously blame them, can you?

    I can blame them just five games into the season. I would have loved to see what people on here were saying week 5 into the 2001 season and how their opinions changed 14 weeks later. If, in the later part of the season, we are sucking it up then I will join in on the ripping. Just not at this point.

    I think people are a little twitchy because of the way last season ended and the way this one began, many feeling 7:27 into the season it ended.

    Whether that is right or not is certainly open for debate and as you said, time will tell.................
