Player/Coach Quotes:

Justin Tuck:

“Dallas is right on our tails. We know what our schedule is like the rest of the way," Tuck said. “They’re coming in our house, Sunday night football, the whole world gonna be watching. This is probably a team, if everything goes right, we’ll see again in the playoffs, hopefully. We both are fighting for positions in the playoff race."

Eli Manning:

"The only way to get back in the talk is to play good football and execute at a better level than what we've been doing," Manning said. "The only way to get that bad feeling out of our mouth is to go out there and play well."

Osi Umenyiora:

"You know how teams play against us," Umenyiora said. "It’s not going to be that type of [sack] party. So for us, we just want to get pressure and see if we can get our hands up whenever they go to that three-step drop, because that’s what we’re expecting."

Ryan Pickett:

“It’s a rivalry, man, and a really good one,” Pickett said. “We’ve both been good for the last couple of years. And when we meet each other, it’s just a really good style of football. … It’s tough. I don’t think we like each other. Neither one of us cares for the other, we play each other tough every time, and it’s becoming a big-time rivalry.”

    38-14 Giants

    Giants couldn’t have asked for better results so far this week. Nearly every team behind them has lost. Dallas, Minnesota, Tampa Bay and Seattle all went down. A Giant Win and a Saint loss would be a perfect week for the Gmen

  3.  James Stoll says:

    Good day so far for the giants.
    Tampa loses
    Seattle loses
    Minnesota loses
    NO losing
    Have to keep an eye on the wild card.
    Bears may have wrapped up one spot today; everyone else is playing for the final slot.
    If NO loses they have 6 losses and sit behind Tampa Seattle and Minnie, along with Dallas and Washington.
    We have the tie breaker over Tampa and a likely better conference record than Seattle and Minnesota.
    If we win tonic we are in great shape.

  4.  James Stoll says:

    I still kind of wish Bradshaw couldn’t go so the brass would be forced to rely on Brown. Then we’d at least see what we could see.
    Also keep hoping for enough touches for Wilson to give the kid a chance to show something
    Given what we’ve seen from the offense this year, especially with the slow development of Randal, the injury to Hixon and the injury to Bennett, I remain convinced that we have to discover a running game if we To be successful.
    Bradshaw isn’t the answer. I loved him in ’07. Screamed for him in ’08. Was happy as he slowly took over for Jacobs in ’09 and ’10. But last year and this have convinced me he is too limited. No vision. Too inclined to cut away from holes into traffic. So intent on breaking every play that he gives away too many 4 yarders.

    We shall see, but I’m hoping for Andre Brown and David Wilson tonight.

    I hate it, but I’m just not confident today. 38-21 Packers.

    My friend literally couldn’t give his tickets away today…hope we’re not playing to an away crowd.

    •  Dirt says:

      I had to sell mine, sold em the Monday after the Bengals game for a decent price. The next day the price had fallen 40% from where I got mine dumped at.

      •  James Stoll says:

        I get the misgivings
        Giants have been bad ever since the SF win
        Hard to imagine them being good again until they are actually good again.
        But I do think there is something to the notion that they can only be bad for so long.
        The team is not that banged up.
        We may actually be healthier tonight than we have been for weeks. Nicks and Phillips if healthy will be huge additions.
        Eli’s too good to continue to stink forever.
        GB is a formidable foe, but I think the team could rise up tonit

  6.  TroyThorne says:

    I’m feeling like this game will be a loss. All the teams that we needed to lose to strengthen our standing in the conference/divison all lost this week. If we win here it would give us some breathing room and set up a big game next week where a win almost assuredly clinches a playoff berth. If we lose, it basically makes next week’s game against Washington a game for the division and sets up another scenario where we have to fight and claw our way to barely making the playoffs in the final weeks of the season. It just seems like the type of game where we play hard but ultimately lose late in the 4th after a few key first downs by Rodgers and the offense.

    Hope I’m wrong but I feel like we’ve seen this movie before.

  7.  James Stoll says:

    Looks like the Saints are going to lose

  8.  Dirt says:

    Coughlin would start Brown over Phillips.

  9.  GmenMania says:

    Giants inactives:

    LB Jacquian Williams, DE Adewale Ojomo, OT James Brewer, DE Adrien Robinson, DT Marvin Austin and OL Selvish Capers.

    Very surprised Austin is inactive. Leaves us with only 3 active DTs.

    Packers inactives:

    CB Charles Woodson, CB Sam Shields, LB Clay Matthews, LB Terrell Manning, TE Andrew Quarless and LB Vic So’oto.

  10.  James Stoll says:

    Saints are going to lose. Very good for the G-Men. The wild card is back in play for the East.
