    Well I was going to blog a whole match up break down but you did before I could which is fine as long as someone did on the blog, that’s the important thing.

    With this team it is impossible for me to make a prediction. They have been too inconsistent. The coaching staff has their issues as I do mention many times. I am no fan of Fewell, if he goes soft no fun today, turn off the TV the Giants will lose without a doubt in my opinion. If Fewell comes on in Spags style the Gmen can win this one.

    This game is all about how the coaches prepare their team. It’s about schemes and strategy. Both teams are talented but have holes. It’s the team that attacks the other teams weakness’s that will win.

    The Atlanta defense is small but efficient, their offense has weapons but their offensive line plays dirty with cut blocks and is not a big one. It’s all about the Giants offense attacking with a power running game mixed with dump off passes to stop the quicker smaller defense, go to the long pass once you have them on their heals. On defense they must pressure Ryan and take him out of the pocket, stop the power running of Turner.

    Just do it Gmen. I think if the coaching staff takes another approach they will lose.

    This is going to be obnoxious to people but i really think it is going to come down to 3 things, and its obvious. I think it is what you have to do to win any game against playoff competition. Stop the run, get after Ryan, and move the ball on offence, in that order of importance. We will move the ball, not worried about that this year. If i see 3 down linemen i will have to go Tonya Harding on Perry Fuel. I mean cmon, and please no one defend it, its beyond terrible. Go Giants

      The defensive scheme that bothers me the most is when teams use 7 guys to block, running only 3 receivers out (usually a typical one deep, one middle, one short), our 4 man rush gets stymied and for some reason we can’t cover 3 guys with 7 because everyone’s in a soft zone coverage. The players need to be told to pick up on this and switch to doubles all around with a safety deep.

    Critics seem to be mixed on this, more towards the Giants but plenty like Atlanta. In my opinion I just hope this team just doesn’t get ahead of themselves. The Cowboys are a better team than Atlanta, and if not for a huge week 17 confidence boost, I would say their heads were in the same place as well. Use the same strategy to block Abraham as they did with Ware, it worked, and Ware is better than Abraham. Use the same defense we’ve seen the past two weeks, the Cowboys are built very similarly to the Falcons, don’t get over consumed with Michael Turner, he’s beat up this year so just treat him just like any other running back, we aren’t the Tampa Buccs and we better not play like it either.
    Grimes will most likely be lined up with Nicks so take advantage of the other matchups, work Cruz out of the slot more often than not, and run the ball early, to Abrahams side, he ALWAYS over pursues (think Osi).
    Let’s hope we get the calls, as Atlanta (as stated by Tuck) is known to play dirty, and try to get in the heads of their opposition. They call it playing until the whistle, if the Giants do that they’d get flagged multiple times a game, I still don’t understand how other teams get away with it, let’s just hope that’s not how it goes tomorrow.
    If we get a solid effort from the team, the refs and the fans it should be no problem, if either side fails, it could be closer than it should be.
    I’m going Giants 27, Falcons 17

    I think its really hinging on how prepared the coaching staff is? Will they be there usual predictable selves and be conservative or will they spread the ball and be a bit more creative? When Killdrive actually gets a solid game plan together this team lights up. We have seen a few flashes this year.
    I think the defenses if they can stay healthy could be what takes this team to the next level and maybe ultimately wins the big prize. I really like that Osi is back and productive and Boley, Kiwi and Rolle and stepping up too. Linval Joseph has been having a great year and gets better every week and of course I can’t say enough about the Defensive player of the year for the G-Men, J.P.P.
    I think we head into Met-Life tomorrow and kick the crap out of the Falcons. I think our true tests lie ahead in the Saints and Packer, whom I think will be our path to the Superbowl. Thats scary but The Giants have a knack for heating up this time of year! GO G-MEN!!!
