What is up with the Giants? My nephew asked me who I thought would win the Super Bowl on Saturday. I told him the Giants were the best team in the league and had the best chance.
Oops. That team isn't the same without Plaxico Burress and Brandon Jacobs. Those guys were matchup nightmares for defensive coordinators. Without them, the Giants offense looks mediocre. I thought maybe the game against us was an aberration, but that isn't the case.
The Carolina Panthers may well be the best team in the NFC right now. They are hot at the right time of the year. Their running game is great and they get big plays from the passing game. DeAngelo Williams deserves some consideration for league MVP.
I still don't know what to make of Dallas. Big win on Sunday, but I still don't trust them to win in the postseason (if they even get in).
Someone needs to tell the Cardinals that the point is to get in the playoffs and be able to win some games. They have lost two of three and were handled with ease.
I was pulling hard for the Bucs to beat the Falcons. Tampa's defense was better than in their Monday night loss to the Panthers, but they still gave up 175 yards on the ground. I know that has got to be driving Monte Kiffin crazy.
