Still some Giant steps to take in 2010
Posted by keithosaunders on November 12, 2010
So far this season the New York Giants look like the class of the NFC. They have been relatively injury free and their defense looks like night and day compared to last season’s porous mess. Eli Mainning is having a dream season, and in Hakeem Nicks he’s found a target to replace Plaxico Burris.
We will soon find out just how serious the Giants are. They have yet to play the Eagles, who now feature a healthy and lethal Michael Vick. Also remaining on the schedule are dates with the Vikings, who at appeared to be revitalized last week with a dramatic come-from-behind win over the Cardinals. They also play the Packers which very well could decide who gets home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Throw in two dates with the Redskins, and one with Jacksonville and you have one tough second half of a season. Ironically, the only gimme on the schedule is this week’s home game against the feckless Cowboys.
Fasten your seatbelts.
