Halftime Thoughts

The Giants have started the game on a roll and are in command of this division deciding tilt. Can they keep it up? It’s 21-0 Giants.

The Giants offense has come out buzzing. Victor Cruz with yet another long touchdown. Bradshaw with 2 touchdowns. They’re able to move the ball effectively, pretty much at ease. Like I said, the Giants can pass against this Cowboys secondary, and that has been the case so far. And I don’t think that will change. No one can cover Cruz, and Nicks hasn’t really been targeted too much. Neither has Manningham. So there’s plenty of room to go for the offense. They’ve gotten multiple guys involved, particularly Henry Hynoski. Giants have gotten lucky with fumbles; those go the other way, this is a different game. But the bounces are going our way so far. Pretty dominant so far.

The defense has shown up tonight. Heavy pressure. JPP with a sack. Osi with a sack. Kiwanuka has been terrific so far. Coverage has been good, and while Romo doesn’t look himself, even if he was healthy, there wouldn’t be much be could do. This is the type of swarming defense we’ve been expecting. The pass rush has just been outstanding. Plus, the middle of the defense has been stout; can’t run on them. I think Osi coming back helps. Allows Tuck to slide in to DT on passing downs. Makes pass rush even more explosive. Pressure is always key, and this game is no exception. Good pressure, good coverage, that’s tough for an offense to overcome.

It’s not over, not by a longshot. But the Giants have come out ready to play and have executed. This is the Giants team we have been looking for all season. Playing with energy and swagger.  In the biggest game of the year. Not much more we can ask for.

    Typical Giants, they are going into trying not to lose the game and not being aggressive and win.

    Eve if they win this game, their mentality will hold them back in the playoffs.

    Like a fighter, you got them on the ropes, knock them OUT!!!!

    They are letting Dallas back in the game, they had them beat.

    I hate Fool and Killdrive.
