NEW YORK GIANTS
New York Giants Football: Remember December 16, 2012?
...That's when the Falcons beat up on the then defending Super Bowl champion Giants by a whopping 34-0 final score.
And that's why I'm putting this game on Coach Fewell's and the defense's shoulders to control, and to make Sunday's game an unpleasant affair for Matt Ryan.
The Giants are 22nd against the pass, and that needs to change pronto. They caused a lot of turnovers in the last two games, and that's exactly the kind football this defense needs to play. A repeat of Week One against the Lions will not do.
On that note, will the real JPP please stand up! He put a lot of pressure on the Texans, and had 7 tackles against the Hogs. But, we need sacks. Jason needs more than 2 games in order to reestablish his reputation as a game changer. Just sayin'. With Osi long gone, and Justin Tuck out of the fold, it is indeed up to JPP to strike fear in the hearts of quarterbacks.
Yes, on the other side of the ball we say hello to old friend Osi Umenyiora. Will Beaty will be the one getting up close and personal with him though. I'm sure Giants fans will give him a nice hand.
The Cowboys and Eagles are both 3-1 now. The Jints need to take care of the Falcons because trips to face the Eagles and Cowboys immediately follow Week 5.
Lets see if the Giants learned any lessons after last year's start from which they could never recover.
Sorry for an abbreviated version. I'll be watching the game while on vacation. WooHoo!
