Jacobs is a beast. Giants don't use him enough IMO. He should have had 25 carries against the Browns last week.

If I could pick one I would pick Jacobs. But Moore has done everything asked of him this year and more. No pun intended. I think the sky is the limit for Brandon but isn't a superstar yet, he is young though. Moore is better receiver.

I was thinking about going to this game... but couldn't because it would be a little tough...

my late-father-in-law was a BIG Giants fan, so I would follow them and root for them when it didn't affect the Steelers.

I hope we thump them... but it won't be a joyous occasion for me.

Luckily, the Giants havent really beaten anybody this season, but maybe the Redskins and I think their D-line is showing the loss of Osi and Strahan. Eli is looking more like the scared kid he was at this time last year and Plexiglass is still a locker room distraction.

The only guy that scares me on the Giants is Brandon Jacobs. Need to keep him from having a big day and the Steelers should win.

I remember those same bungles taking it to Giant's and actually should have won that game. The bungles while 0-7!!! Actually been playing some good defense this year.

We didn't lose to the 2-4 Browns by 3 TDs either, so what's your point?

The Bengals defense has 5 sacks all season......the Steelers had 6 TODAY!!

Hard to say the Defense that is ranked 28th in the NFL against the run and has less sacks than Lamarr Woodley does by himself, has been playing good this year. .

I think that these are the most important things for sunday's game agains the G-Men

1- take an early lead

2-stop the run,force them to throw
(you dont want that 260 pounds Jacobs to still run on you in 2nd half when your D is more tired)

3-run effectively

4-put a lot of pressure on the kid eli

5-pickup the blitzes

but be realistic that game is not gonna be an easy one

Time for our boys to get some national spotight. This is the part of the season its gettin rough but we are strong. Key to the game is pressure Eli and make him force it. Also we are 3-0 in the throwbacks.

Guys everyone is talking about our defense, Jacobs, etc etc... the real story and ONLY story if you ask me is will our O-LINE be able to protect Big Ben we do that and it will be a good game, hopefully with us at the top.....we dont and its over.
