    I don't like how many Giants got injured this game; I'd rather beat them while they're at 100%.

    Well, they'll be healthier when we knock them out of the Wildcard playoff game.

    I agree. If we were trailing by 2 touchdowns, then I could understand. But the game was close throughout, and it was pass play after pass play. 42 passes and 17 runs isn't going to win you many games. I think Jackson will do well, but McCarthy didn't give him much of a chance yesterday.

    I am sorry... but when the line can't open holes for a couple of yard per carry... when they got yards it was when the whole mob pushed down the field.. you really are hamstrung (not in the Greg Jennings way) to rely on what was gaining yards.. our passing game yesterday was nothing more than a glorified run game... 5 yard pecks at a time.

    I agree. Our tackles were getting their butts handed to them out there and it was obvious to MM Clifton nor Tausher was going to get the better of their guy yesterday.

    When your physically playing the guy across from you to a draw or occasionally winning that battle theres reason to keep banging away. It was obvious our guys were outmanned yesterday.

    We have NY next week and that looks like a great team to get things back on track. I'm not that concerned that the "0" line cannot rebound from a bad game. Taush and Clif play bad once in a blue moon.

    The Packers called a run play the first play of the game. It got 2 yards and then McCarthy went away from it. On 3rd an 1 when the team was picking up yardage on the ground (2 carried 9 yards previous 2 plays) McCarthy went for a pass which was incomplete and the Packers had to punt. Why not call the run play and see if they can pickup the 1st down. If so then the morality of Jackson and the offensive line would've definitely went up. The play calling was a disaster against Philly. The holes weren't there but they never really had a good chance either. It was a mixture of play calling and the players as to why the offense struggled so much.

    NY is a tough place to play and the Giants are already fighting for their lives, but they are also quite banged up following the Cowboy game last night.

    I think a win is definately possible, but GB will have to show more consistency on offense, both running and passing.

    Well one piece of the running game is on the shelf...

    JACOBS OUT 3-5 WEEKS

    Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is expected to miss 3-5 weeks with a sprained MCL suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.

    Jacobs entered the game as the heir to Tiki Barber. With Jacobs out, the rushing duties will fall to Derrick Ward and to Reuben Droughns. Rookie Ahmad Bradshaw also could get some reps.

    It remains to be seen whether the Giants try to sign a replacement. Corey Dillon is still available. As is Barber. But Barber made it clear on Sunday night that he sees a return as highly unlikely -- even as John Madden nearly keeled over while guaranteeing that Tiki will be getting a call.

    Another potential problem is that the Giants would need to clear a roster spot for any new running back who is signed; as to any player who suffers an in-season injury, the player remains on the roster unless and until he is placed on injured reserve. But if/when a player is placed on injured reserve, he cannot return at all for the balance of the season.

    Jacobs is out?!

    That means they're gonna be pretty 1-dimensional (not that it matters, when they run, our big boys up front will stop them anyway).

    Oh man....this game is gonna be gross.

    Like I said before: Our DL will eat their O for lunch. I feel really bad for whoever the QB is, especially if its Lorenzen.

    What's interesting to note is that Ryan Grant knows the Giants scheme pretty well, since he was in it for the past 3 years.

    I have to think he'll be able to provide our coaches and players with invaluable info on the tendencies of the Giants players.

    Hopefully that info translates in to better execution for our O.

    Jason Witten / Bubba Franks

    Jason Witten was open on play-action across the middle of the field the whole night versus that Giants D. Let's hope the Packers exploit that to death and Bubba can gain some separation from those NY linebackers.

    Re: Jason Witten / Bubba Franks

    Well we have to have a little bit of a running game to get the LBers into a read and react mode... even for a split second to allow the TE or hopefully a WR dragging through the short zone behind the LBers and ahead of the safeties... something like Jones was doing in the preseason.. letting him us the skillz in the open field to pick up yardage..

    Not being able to run the ball hurt a short passing team like the Packers with young players whom might not get real clean releases off the line. Those LBers you speak of can start to fill those short zones before having to respect the run game.

    Well, I'm going to be at the game Sunday. And the only other time I went to a Packer game they won 52-3, so hopefully the Pack's goodluck charm will come through again with another 52-3.

    I doubt it...

    I doubt the Giants even score 3 points!

    MM has no faith in his running attack, i predicted 50 passes i was off by 8. anyone can see, the coach has no confidence in his running attack.

    Well the big man Jared finally gets his chance to play in NY... maybe he will shut down the PR monster that SUBWAY created with the other Jared.

    Remember back in the day when Jason Garrett had to play for Troy boy... we were suppose to win that game too... You never know in this league..

    This is a great opportunity for the Packers. It is an extremely winnable game. However, I think some of the predictions of an easy victory might be a little premature for a team that didn't even score an offensive touchdown this week. I do hope and expect the Packers to win. I am just a little wary of the wounded animal with it's back against the wall. But when all is said and done, our defense should just dominate a team that has lost both it's starting qb and rb.

    I completely agree and that's what scares me about McCarthy. I wish he would have a little faith. If he has to be stubborn about running the ball then so be it. Just try and estbalish something. Hopefully the Pack can get out to a big lead and in the 2nd half they try and run the ball. That would be nice to see.
