    I just re-watched our game against the Giants on NFL replay. We actually got quite a bit of pressure on Eli. Way more than I remembered. And that's without our two starting ILBs, one of whom is a great inside blitzer.

    Did you happen to notice what the score was when Wood got hurt and had to leave the game?

    I'm certain the Packers receivers will have a huge day. I also suspect Capers has a few cards up his sleeve that he's been holding onto for a while. We'll see. Prediction time:

    Packers 33
    Giants 24

    Rodgers: 27-41, 4 TD (Jones, Nelson, Jennings x2), 0 INT, 325 yards
    Manning: 18-31, 2 TD (Cruz, Nicks), 2 INT (Woodson, Peprah), 300 yards

    agreed on the packers recvievers having a big day..I can def see that..I worry that the pack will use the short passing game to take away our pass rush...our D-coorndinator loves playing a loose zone at times...if they do that against the pack it will be a long day..another concern of mine is the fact that the pack create turnovers and take care of the ball better than anyone in the league.

    Absolutely. I'll watch them all, but I have to admit I am not all that piqued by the AFC games nearly as much.

    agreed about the AFC to be honest for the first time in a while the NFC is the better conference imo..the packers and the saints are the 2 best teams in football the niners are 13-3 and the giants won in foxboro this year and when healthy can beat anyone in the league imo.

    I hate to say it -- because it would be a lot easier on my heart if the Pack blew you guys out -- but something tells me this game has the potential to be epic (don't know why, just a feeling). I think in both NFC games the winner is going to walk away truly feeling like they won something, like it was a battle, and they overcame a worthy opponent. At times each of the AFC teams (except PERHAPS the Pats) looked like games to determine who least wanted to lose rather than who most wanted to win.

    The thing to watch for imo is the first couple drives for each team...if the packers come out and rodgers goes rite down the field and the giants dont respond it can get out of hand. A fast start is important for the giants. If the giants are running the ball well and force the pack to punt early on you guys will have to sweat this one out. I am a homer but I like Eli late in the game over rodgers.

    I'm a homer too and I like Rodgers, but I do have to admit that Eli has more "end of game" experience than Rodgers including those record fourth quarter touchdowns. I think against us, however, if he is forced to put it in the air a lot we have a good chance of forcing him into some bad decisions, and maybe a pick or two.

    and thats a major concern of mine...the packers although they have given up a lot of yards and points this year, get a lot of turnovers..case and point Clay's pick 6..which turned out to be the difference the last time we played. Also the packers take care of the ball better than anyone in the league.

    In the Super Bowl (you know, that really big game we won last year after beating a bunch of teams that were supposed to be better than us :whistling:, prior to going 15-1 this season), our defense seemed to be disoriented for a while when CWood broke his collarbone and had to leave.

    I'd have to watch this game over again, but it seemed (in my memory) you scored a couple of times pretty quickly after he was concussed. I'd always wondered if that was part of the reason.

    You DO realize that was a completely different punter who isn't even in the NFL anymore...right?
    Try again with the ST trash talk.

    HE DROPPED THE PUNT!!!! They gave him time. Sure they kicked to him but he dropped it, did a few moves and the OTHER 10 players still couldn't get him down. I mean yeah our ST last year was a joke, but at least they didn't cost us the playoffs.

    Oh trust me, I remember that play VERY, VERY well...I don't think you can find a true Giants fan who doesn't remember (and cringe at the thought of) the last 7 minutes of that game. However, that was last season, a completely different circumstance and everything. I don't see anything like that happening again...knock on wood

    It was more of a total collapse rather than blowing the season on one game. That game should have never gotten to that point anyways, we should have ended the eagles long ago and we didn't and it bit us in the ***.

    This is the only thing that scares me about Eli. He can turn it on in the 4th quarter if needed. He can be scrappy and clutch if all he needs it a TD or FG to win the game or tie it up IMO.

    I don't think he is at the same level his brother ever has been on a week to week basis (obviously not-Peyton was painfully consistent) but Eli has the more clutch Manning gene in him.

    I totally agree...couldn't be happier with his performance...very reliable and consistent, and that's all you can really ask for in the NFL

    Giants take down Pats. Saints take down Colts. Packers take down Steelers. The big 3 of the last decade in the AFC has been taken down in the SB recently.

    Yes the NFC has become a better conference.
