NEW YORK GIANTS FOOTBALL:
End The Cowboys Season Today!
The time is right for Big Blue to take a strangle hold on the NFC East. And possibly more gratifying to Giants fans, Big Blue is in supreme position to hasten a rebuilding effort in Dallas. One more season of massive underachievement in all likelihood will hasten Jerry Jones into dismantling his unfruitful Glory Hole of a team.
The 'Boys are no doubt in a bad place right now and lacking Texas Tea. Dallas is 3-3 on the season. They played their best game of the season against the Giants in the opening week of the season and have been floundering ever since. Tony Romo has been the poster child.
The Giants are undefeated in Jerry World, but I do not expect that streak to last much longer. However, their streak won't get snapped today. To echo the sentiment and words of the Cowboys owner himself, I expect the Giants to go into Big-D and sear a good 'ol Big Blue branding upon the Cowboys posterior.
The guy who sacked Eli Manning two times in Week One has been battling the flu this week, and that just might catch up to him in the second half. The Cowboys can juice him up with all the IV they want. He'll be throwing up on the sidelines by the third quarter. Or not. But the Giants have only given up four or five sacks since their first encounter against Demarcus Ware. They (Will Beatty) should be better prepared to stop him this week.
The Cowboys will be without their linebacker Sean Lee. Jerry's Kids have several more injuries to contend with as well. Big Blue's running game stands to benefit. The Giants ran the ball a mere nineteen times against the Cowboys when they last met, and gained eighty two yards. I expect them to do much better this time around. The offensive line suffered a setback with last week's running game against Washington, but the unit has so far elevated the Giants rush to at least twelfth place overall this season. That's a far cry over last season when they ranked dead last.
There is every reason to believe the O-Line will continue providing Eli with plenty of time to throw as well. That could spell doom this week for Jerry Jone's high priced corner backs as Eli should have Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Domenik Hixon, and Martellus Bennett all available for duty today. Over the first seven games of the season, that always hasn't been the case.
Defensively, you have to marvel at the continuity the Giants have displayed. Kenny Phillips goes down and Steve Brown emerges to become a tremendous factor. As Chris Canty missed the first half of the season, Linval Joseph stepped in admirably. Now, Joseph is down, and Canty is back. It's a tough break, but it shows depth prevailed.
I'm concerned Jacquian Williams is hurt. He's kinda of a pet project of mine. If he is out, I think we'll see Mathias Kiwanuka back at linebacker for a week.
If you haven't noticed, Jayron Hosely has been playing well, while Prince Amukamara has been even better. Heading into this day against Tony Romo, the Secondary should be better seasoned by now, and eager to put forth a much improved showing than in Week One.
Up front, the pass rush took Week One off. For that matter, they took Week Two off as well. Tony Romo will be dealing with an emerging force this week. The pass rush has awoken from their slumber. After stretching out the last few weeks, they look ready to get down to business just in time to punctuate Tony Romo's ninth season as a pro with another career defining loss.
Enjoy the game. Let's go Giants!
