NFC East: Still Winnable

Basically with the Cowboys losing and the Eagles losing today — the Giants aren’t in too bad a shape afterall.

It’s painful to see the ‘Boys on top at 6-3, and with the Eagle tied with the Giants at 5-4 I feel a whole lot better about the Giants chances for later this year as we wind things into the playoffs. With the Skins at 3-6, they are the non-threat in the division that can maybe put a damper on another teams record, but not for the Giants. They take that series 2-0 without issue.

But more to the point, I can see the Gmen winning both the Eagles and Cowboys matchups at home with a team who is capable of playing extremely tight football… late November is the perfect time to get hot. While the Giants should atleast be tied for the lead, I honestly and truly believe that it works in their favor to be slightly behind in the division and forced to make a run to the playoffs.

All things considered, Tony Romo does not look that good. The Packers completely dominated this game tonight. And Philadelphia’s running game is gone, Westbrook didn’t make it to San Diego apparently… Donny McNabb had an impressive 400+ yard game though.

So when you compare the Giants to these two teams who seem to be backsliding a bit this week, the Giants have an opportunity to shoot the shoots with a ball of fire starting at home against Atlanta, a team the pundits love to talk about but in all honesty has little chance to win against a focused Giants team.

Between Eli itching to make an impact, Jacobs itching, Bradshaw itching, and the defense largely itching to prove themselves — things could get mighty interesting this December.

    These losses will provide the inspiration this team needs now. I also think that there will be more self destructing in this division. Bye the way i will feel really good monday morning!!!

    Best Sunday in awhile.

    I’m not concerned with the Eagles/Cowboys games, I want a win against Atlanta, that’s all I’m concerned about right now.

  4. yo! Don’t forget that if we win against Atlanta the Giants will be in prime position to control their own destiny for the wild card berth.

    The Giants have to pull out a win other wise these losses mean apsolutly nothing to us. hopefully the boys have a nice bye week and will come out in tip top form. If they want to win the division it is necesary to win 5 out of there next 6 games if they go with the wild card it will most likly need 4 out of there next 6. so im ganna say they need to go 5-1 to win division and 4-2 to win wildcard.

      MORE than doable for this team…. can they get together and play cohesively next weekend?

      we shall see.

      they need to have an efficient day on offense and defense to win, they are completely capable of doing it too.
