I won't give up and still believe in anything - the Giants, Packers, and Steelers have proved that in the past.

I still reserve the right to bitch.

I'm not giving up either. Giving up would mean not watching them play the next 2 Sundays and not rooting for them. I'll watch them but I don't expect much. Now they can always surprise me but I wasn't born yesterday.

Exactly what Giants fans were saying at this time last year. Exactly.

Wouldn't remotely surprise me if we smash the Bungles then lose 9-6 to the Browns. This season in a nutshell.

If we do make the playoffs though, with our injuries and keystone kops highlight reel, then there can't be a better reason to believe in destiny.

And then the Giants defense did what they were doing all year, sacked the QB and forced turnovers. All they needed was for Eli to stop imploding.

5 sacks and 3 turnovers of the Jets, and 6 sacks and 2 turnovers against Dallas, their last two wins to go 9-7.

Anyone think this defense can rise up for a couple performances like that?

Being "in it" and being a true contender are two different things.

Even I have to admit that we do not look like a championship team and until we do -- even if we end up in the playoffs, we'll just be there to balance out the field.

What a shame.

What's even worse is that as usual, Dick LeBeau will be free from blame, Haley will be given a pass because "It's his first year with the team" and Tomlin will be crucified because -- well, because he's Tomlin.


Oh and of course Arians will still suck.


*Sigh*

Next year's draft is very deep at safety and there is some real good inside linebackers too. Don't forget another WR and RB on the wish list as well.

I think the Ravens are going to lose on purpose in Week 17 so the Steelers can't go the playoffs and so they can rest their starters for the playoffs.

If we win the next 2 games there is nothing anyone can do to stop us. Not the Bengals, the Ravens or the Jets.

If we beat the Bengals and the Giants beat the Ravens, the Ravens will have to play week 17 or risk us passing them for the #4 seed and them getting the #6. This would make them go on the road to Denver or NE and put us at home against the Colts.

I think they'll be playing to beat Cincy that week if week 16 works out to plan.
