      Giants slowed down the Pats offense earlier this season. Green Bay is basically the same offense. If you hit the recievers at the line and disrupt the timing that goes a long way.

      I don't think I've been more worried about a game like this since the last time the Packers and Giants played in the playoffs.

      We gotta make it since I think 9ers Giants would be a great championship game.

      T-minus 2 Hours till game time.

      We can definitely beat them today.
      And I think the 49ers will be an easier opponent for the Giants than the Saints would have been.

      This season has Pats vs. Giants repeat written all over it

      This is why I'm more nervous about the 49ers than I was about Green Bay. The Pack clearly looked rusty. Even Rodgers was a little off on a few throws. The Giants played fantastic, though. Definitely Super Bowl caliber at this point.

      One of the worst refereed games I can remember. Eli was eating helmets all day... But no calls. Rodgers takes a legal shot and the refs gift wrap a TD. The call on that fumble she lose a ref his job. Technically that game was more like 37-6 or 37-10. On to San Fran. GO GMEN!!!!

      I was flipping out at my boys place because of some of these bs calls. Something needs to be done about these refs after this season.

      I am proud of this Giants team, all we have to do now is go to the SB, but next on the agenda is SF. It may be a close game, can't wait for Sunday.

      Refs where horrible today but we got the W. I'd be even more pissed at those calls if we didn't.

      While those bad calls really infuriate viewers, I'd say the Giants made out pretty good because none of them really opened up big plays. I hate more than anything else is a bad pass interference call.

      Fumbles are up in the air because officials tend to give the teams with possessions the benefit of the doubt on close calls.

      Rodgers played pretty good actually, his team let him down just like the Giants last year when receivers keep dropping passes for Eli.

      I disagree. The miscall on the fumble and the roughing the passer BOTH turned into TD's. The roughing call coming on a 3rd and long. The Pack would have had to punt.

      It gave the Packers a fresh set of downs, can be overcome without a TD. But I agree the calls were really awful and should have an NFL office review.

      Rodgers and Co just didn't have it at all, no matter how much the refs helped they wouldn't be able to stop the Giants.

      The NFL issued an apology to the Giants for the ****ty reffing. Too bad they aren't going to fire that crew or even fine them.

      Onto this weeks game:
      Conditions being reported for the stick on Sunday are wind and rain. Hopefully it doesn't hinder our front four getting to the QB.

      I hope we win and take on the Ravens at the SB, I want revenge.

      Brady-Manning Super Bowl Would Be Most-Watched U.S. TV Show Ever

      By Curtis Eichelberger
      Jan. 17 (Bloomberg) -- A New York Giants-New England
      Patriots matchup in the Super Bowl might become the most-watched
      show in the history of U.S. television.
      Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes to lead the Giants,
      as 12-point underdogs, to a 17-14 win against quarterback Tom
      Brady and the Patriots in the National Football League title
      game four years ago.
      A rematch of those teams and quarterbacks would have enough
      subplots to draw even more viewers than last year’s record-
      setting Super Bowl between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh
      Steelers, said Brad Adgate, senior vice president of research at
      New York-based Horizon Media Inc.
      “These two teams accounted for one of the greatest upsets
      in Super Bowl history,” Adgate said. “The Patriots and Giants
      are the most likely to draw in the casual fans.”
      The matchup for the Feb. 5 Super Bowl will be determined
      Jan. 22 when New York travels to San Francisco for the National
      Football Conference championship game and New England hosts the
      Baltimore Ravens for the American Football Conference title.
      The Packers won last year’s Super Bowl 31-25 in a game that
      drew 111 million viewers, the most in U.S. television history.
      A Giants-Patriots championship game would be the most
      enticing, even more than a San Francisco-Baltimore showdown of
      head coach brothers Jim and John Harbaugh, said Rick Gentile, a
      sports management instructor at Seton Hall University in South
      Orange, New Jersey, and a former executive producer and senior
      vice president at CBS Sports.
      “The better matchup is the Giants-Pats,” Gentile said in
      an interview. “You’d have two big markets, and the Giants are
      an incredible story, coming from nowhere to challenge for the
      title. You can’t dismiss the interest in the Manning family
      either, or in Tom Brady.”

      Super Bowl

      The 2007 Patriots, led by two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable
      Player Brady, amassed an 18-0 mark heading into the Feb. 3,
      2008, Super Bowl, one victory short of a perfect season. The
      Giants won when Manning, who was selected as the game’s MVP,
      threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35
      seconds remaining.
      The teams didn’t face one another again until Nov. 6 of
      this year. The game was in Foxborough, Massachusetts, and again
      the Giants were underdogs. Manning threw a 1-yard touchdown pass
      to Jake Ballard with 15 seconds left to give New York a 24-20
      victory, ending the Patriots’ 20-game regular-season home
      winning streak.
      Adgate said a 49ers-Ravens matchup would still be exciting,
      though it lacks the storylines a New England-New York game would
      have.

      Most-Watched Game

      When the Ravens beat the 49ers 16-6 in Baltimore on Nov. 25
      this year, it became the most-watched game in the eight-year
      history of the NFL Network, with 10.7 million viewers tuning
      into the game.
      Chris McCloskey, a spokesman for Comcast Corp.’s NBC, which
      is showing this year’s Super Bowl, said the network doesn’t
      comment on ratings projections.
      Adgate said that unlike the National Basketball Association
      or Major League Baseball, market size doesn’t matter in the NFL
      as it did years ago.
      “The NBA would dread having Oklahoma City in the Finals
      from a ratings perspective,” Adgate said. “That wouldn’t be
      the case in the NFL because people will watch anyway. It’s more
      about the storylines. And either of these matchups have the
      ingredients to push the numbers ever higher.”

      Close Game

      Another factor driving viewership is how close the game is,
      Adgate said.
      “There are two ways to increase viewership: More people
      can watch, and more people can watch longer,” he said. “If
      it’s a close game like the last two have been, it could draw big
      ratings.”
      And one other element plays into the mix, which has nothing
      to do with the quarterbacks or even football.
      “Snowmageddon,” Adgate said. “If we had a blizzard that
      kept people indoors rather than going to a bar or restaurant to
      watch the game, that would be really big.”

      If the NFL wants the Giants in the Superbowl, we can expect lots of calls to go against the Niner's then?

      Not if the people in Vegas have anything to say about it. Right now Vegas stands to lose a lot of money if NY wins the SB or even wins the NFC. I could see a lot of calls go against the Giants if Vegas has their hand in it.

      Oh, Antrel!

      The Giants' safety, who would later address 49ers tight end Vernon Davis' comments, started out by telling reporters that New York "can't be beat" in the NFC Championship Game in San Francisco on Sunday.

      Or, in the Super Bowl, for that matter.

      "We wouldn't say we're unstoppable, but our mind-set is extreme at this point. We're not going to be denied. ... I might be a little biased, but in our minds, we can't be beat," Rolle said Monday.

      "It don't matter who we play," Rolle said. "You can put an All-Star team in front of us, and we're going to go out there and compete. We don't fold. No matter what happens, if there's a bad call, or things aren't going our way, we're not going to break."

      Then Tuesday, Rolle was asked on New York radio station WFAN what he thought about Davis saying that he "prayed and prayed" that the Giants would beat the Packers so that the 49ers could face New York at home.

      "If he said that, I can only hope he's saying it just because they want to get a home game," Rolle said. "They better be careful what they ask for, because their wish is being granted and we'll see them come Sunday."

      Then, probably grabbing the microphone like he was a professional wrestler, Rolle made sure all the listeners knew he was ready for Sunday's game.

      "I don't give a damn who we're playing, man," Rolle said. "That's my take. I'll take any opponent, any given day. That's my attitude. If someone has a problem with it, oh well. But that's how I am. That's how I was raised. I don't shy away from any opponent.

      "My heart doesn't pump any Kool-Aid, only blood. I'm ready for whenever, however, whatever, however it gets to me. I'm ready for it."

      Manning-Led Giants Take ‘Road Warrior’ Attitude to San Francisco

      By Erik Matuszewski
      Jan. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin can
      gain a place in National Football League history this weekend
      when the New York Giants take their “Road Warrior” mentality
      to San Francisco to play for a spot in the Super Bowl.
      The Giants upset the defending-champion Green Bay Packers
      in the second round of the playoffs last week at Wisconsin’s
      Lambeau Field, an extension of the road success the team had in
      its postseason run to the Super Bowl title after the 2007
      season. The Giants’ championship rings from that season have an
      inscription on the side that reads, “Eleven straight on the
      road.”

      The Giants (11-7) are 2 1/2-point underdogs in the Jan. 22
      game in San Francisco for the National Football Conference
      title. If they upset the 49ers, Manning would have five road
      playoff victories, the most for an NFL quarterback. Coughlin,
      65, would tie Hall of Famer Tom Landry with seven postseason
      road wins, the most for a coach.

      “There’s a battle readiness you don’t see in the league,”
      former Steve Young, a Hall of Fame quarterback with the 49ers
      and now an NFL analyst for ESPN, said of the Giants in a
      telephone interview. “You don’t see these road warrior teams,
      and that’s got to be a compliment to the coach.”
      The Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, each 5-3, were the only
      NFC teams to have a better record this regular season in road
      games than at home. The Giants haven’t had a losing record in
      road games since the 2004 season, when Manning was a rookie and
      Coughlin was in his first season with the Giants.
      New York is the only team to win on the road through the
      first two rounds of the playoffs.

      Coughlin Mindset

      “It’s just the concept of us against the world, I guess,”
      Giants defensive end Justin Tuck told reporters yesterday. “You
      don’t have anything else to fall back on except your teammates.
      That goes a long way with building trust, with building that
      belief in the fact that, regardless of who we go face, we can
      come out victorious. That’s just a mindset that has been
      instilled in us ever since Coach Coughlin has been here.”
      The 49ers (14-3) have an 8-1 record at home this season,
      including last week’s 36-32 playoff victory against the New
      Orleans Saints.
      The Giants have won each of their past four games -- all to
      keep their season alive -- by at least 15 points. It’s the first
      time they’ve had four straight victories by that margin since
      the end of their 1986 championship season.
      The Giants were 7 1/2-point underdogs at Lambeau Field a
      week ago, when they ended the Packers’ 13-game home win streak.

      Manning, Coughlin and the Giants also won on their trip to Green
      Bay following the 2007 season, beating the Packers for the NFC
      championship before upsetting the undefeated New England
      Patriots in the Super Bowl.

      Aiming for Landry

      Coughlin is 6-4 in postseason road games, including two
      wins when he coached the Jacksonville Jaguars, and last week’s
      victory moved him ahead of Joe Gibbs for second behind Landry,
      who won two Super Bowl titles in 29 years with the Dallas
      Cowboys.
      “There’s some ability he has to laser focus a football
      team when it’s most important, kind of Knute Rockne almost,”
      Young said, comparing Coughlin to the former Notre Dame coach
      who won six national titles and gained fame for his ‘Win one for
      the Gipper’ speech. “To me, Tom Coughlin is constantly able to
      draw out the most from these guys.”
      Manning, 31, has four postseason road wins, tying him with
      Roger Staubach, Len Dawson, Jake Delhomme, Mark Sanchez of the
      New York Jets and Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens. Flacco
      also has a chance to add to his total this weekend when the
      Ravens visit New England in the American Football Conference
      title game.
      Manning didn’t talk to the media yesterday after leaving
      practice early with a stomach virus. Coughlin said he expects
      Manning to rejoin the team today and to be at full strength in
      San Francisco.
      “There’s nothing like going into a stadium and what’s left
      of the fans at the end of the game is your fans,” Giants
      linebacker Michael Boley told reporters yesterday. “There’s
      nothing like it.”
