But this time it’s between the football teams!

With all the talk about the weather, Ryan Grant and the Super Bowl being Brett Favre’s destiny or final swan song, the New York Giants prove to the football world that they are the ones who belong in the big game.
Don’t get me wrong, the Green Bay Packers have an explosive team but with the weather being in the single digits, it put each team on an equal playing field and looking at both Eli Manning and Brett Favre on and off the field, it looked like Eli was the one who was more used to the frigid temperatures then Brett was. And although Plaxico Burress didn’t make it into the endzone, he may have had his best game of his career! 11 receptions for 154 yards.. What a way to step up! Big time players make big time plays and Plaxico was as big as anyone in the game!

Next up is the team that the Giants played in the final week of the season, the New England Patriots. Aside from the one big play from Tom Brady to Randy Moss that set records, the Giants had played them well on both offense and defense. These two weeks are going to be critical for both teams, giving them time to assess each other. But with the long layoff and the Giants playing hot right now who will benefit from it? The Giants are riding that big wave of momentum, it will be tough to carry that over into the Super Bowl, especially after not playing for 2 weeks.

If the game is close like it was in week 16, the Giants well prevail, ending a dream season for Brady and the Patriots and giving another Manning the opportunity to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, two years in a row!

I know it’s pre-season but last nights game between the Jets and the Vikings was pretty sloppy (on the Jets part). I’m sure they have a plan and Mangini will have them playing alot better then what they showed last night.

I’m predicting them to be 11-5, right behind the New England Patriots.

giants_logo.gif The New York Giants play tomorrow night against the Baltimore Ravens and this marks the return of Amani Toomer, out since he tore his ACL last november. Out again is Plaxico Burress.

The Giants have a lot of work to do so I’ll be back to talk about the G-Men later..
