Anyway you look at it, the Giants are heads and tails better than the Bucs

The Giants may be taking a little offense to Raheem Morris’ latest stance that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the “best team” in the NFC.

After all, checking out the standings, the G-Men are 5-2, while the Bucs are sitting at 4-2, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that’s a half a game better than the Bucs.

Playing the odds, the Giants also have taken care of Bears, Texans, Panthers, Lions and Cowboys, while the Bucs had to struggle to the last second to best the Rams at home last week.

The Bucs have also been crushed by two of the NFL’s best, the Steelers and Saints, so if your placing an NFL bet on what team is truly better, it’s hard to go against what the Giants are doing right now.

The team did take a hit this week with the loss of LB Mathias Kiwanuka, but overall they are still deeper on defense and should not take that much of a hit at the end of the day from the loss.

“It’s painful for us to go this route with Kiwi, but we’ve exhausted all of our options,” general manager Jerry Reese said. “What’s most important is for him to get healthy. We’re praying and hopeful that by next fall he will be back at 100 percent and playing for the New York Giants.”

“We held out hope as long as we could,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “Finally, by consensus, the doctors came to this decision. You have to make the right choice and the decision was made that he could not play again this season. My concern is for Mathias. He loves the game, he loves to play, he’s proven his versatility this year beyond any question. He’s given great effort and he has proven that he is a team player. I feel badly for Mathias because I know how important playing the game of football is to him. Let’s get him healthy, back on the field, playing for the New York Giants.”
