    I have said this a few times, but needs to be said again...

    Every team we face wants to really beat the SB champs..On top of it we are undefeated...So it is two fold.

    Just remember that when you wonder why we have hard time beating teams..

    Good post LTF. That's something we have to keep in mind all the time. Everyone wants to beat the best team so we are playing all these teams at the tops of their games. And we are beating them. The Giants really brought it tonight, but in the end, it wasn't enough to defeat us.

    Absolutely. Not to mention that we're playing some desperate teams, like NY and TB. They're fighting for the playoffs, we know we're already there...

    So once again our defense lets them score a bunch, but scored a pick 6 of their own to keep us in a position to win.

    To be fair, it was the packers offense that won it today.

    Why? We could have been the team down in points at the end without the defense's six points.

    true. But i think last year it was a mixture of offense/defense (offense and defense both played great in the playoffs).

    This year, the D needs to step it up. Eli manning looked like god out there at times..

    The D was banged up and got more so in the game with Woodson.

    I was honestly more concerned with the offense earlier on. And Clay's pick 6 can't be overlooked. Huge huge.....

    And Aaron comes through in the end. Lose the coin toss in OT and it might be 11-1.

    Yes. McCarthy confirmed it in his post game presser.

    Terrible outing by the defense. Just too many big plays given up.

    In the end, they got 2 turnovers, as they always do. But definitely a terrible game. No excuses for not making a play on that final drive by the Giants.

    Not to mention that your pic signature also caused a fumble. Really though, our 3-4 defense has evolved at an astonishing rate since that high scoring playoff loss to the Cardinals a couple years back. Our D's preparation always shows with high intensity play in basic run stops, pass rush, batted balls, tackling, etc. I'm feeling very proud of them.:) And special kudos to our special teams!

    I've had this game marked as perhaps our toughest test for months now. There were lots of factors stacked against us today. But champions find a way to win.
