Giants Still Rolling at Halfway Point of the 2011 Season

NEW YORK – The New York Giants are 6-2 and in first place of the NFC East. Things could not be going any better for them at this point in the year, they are coming off an emotional win against the New England Patriots and facing the elite teams on their 2011 NFL schedule during the next few weeks. I am very pleased to see them winning games. They are winning games even when they are not playing very well or fielding their best players. I have tremendous confidence in the G-men and most of our readers could confirm that fact. But even I thought the Giants would be having a much tougher time then they seem to be having. I never lost faith but was very concerned about the depleted squad. The Giants have made believers out of everyone, including the haters.

Some of the football “experts” will say the Giants haven’t played any elite teams yet or the level of competition has been subpar. My message for those people is to just be quiet, take a look at every single NFL team schedule and you will see a balance of good and bad teams. People need to start giving the Giants credit for what they have done with a completely decimated roster. I’m sick of the New York bashing that fans have to endure with these television programs, who give too much personal opinion and not enough factual accounts of the events that take place. Even the haters out there cannot deny the fact that Big Blue is in first place and cruising through their schedule. I’m not being egocentric but simply stating the facts of the Giants current situation. It was nice to see Archie Manning come out and voice his displeasure with the Joe Buck and Troy Aikman FOX Sports pairing, that can’t seem to help bashing the Giants at every possible opportunity. Fans have been extremely vocal about their displeasure with this situation and Papa Manning validated what we were all thinking.

I am here to report that the state of the New York Giants is strong heading into week 10. The Giants have four difficult opponents coming up starting with the revamped 49ers this weekend. This is a game that Big Blue can absolutely win. The 49ers have a very good defense but so do the Giants. If it comes down to the quarterbacks having to win the game, which I think it will, I’d take Eli Manning and wouldn’t look back. I’m not taking San Francisco lightly because they are a good football team but I still think the Giants “shock and awe” road tour will continue with another victory. My final score prediction is Giants 19 – 49ers 13.

What are your thoughts about the Giants performance at the halfway point of the 2011 season?

Side Note: I would like to say RIP to a boxing legend, Joe Frazier. One of the greatest boxing champions in history!

    maybe im over stepping my bounds a bit by saying that i believe the giants could very well be 8-0.barring 2 big interceptions in the skins and seahawks game and this team is undefeated,i really believe that the g-men ,god willing they get some players to come back soon could be very dangerous coming down the stretch,even with the heavy hitters coming up in there schedule.i also never lost my faith in this team,and one of the things i wrote early on when i was calling you mr,domaine was that big blue will be playing this season with an unbelievable chip on there shoulders the size of mount vesuvious,the eagles comeback and the defensive collapse against the packers that cost them the playoffs last year and stuck in the giants players,especially the special teams coaching staffs craw.i believe the g-men are winning not because of,but in spite of all the doubters and are using that for competitive juice.i not only think the big blue will beat the 49ers,im really optimistic about them beating the teams that supposedly are going to walk all over them.we all know where the eagles are and could best believe they will come in a few weeks ready to play,but by then i think they will be buried in the division.lets face it,the cowboys are not that good and could be had. and the skins are falling fast and furious.i love that the g-men are flying under the radar,but the nay sayers are starting to recognize that this will be the giants nfc east division title.while teams are starting to fall to the injury bug,the g-men are starting to get healthy and for them to be doing what there doing with basically a rag tag group, although very talented is incredible,i could only imagine when there running on all cylinders with key players coming back.i would really like to see all hands on deck and im really looking forward to seeing what this prince amakumura could do for extremely happy with the way the giants are stepping up to all challengers and to most giants fans they are playing above and beyond there expectations.but for me,now its time for big blue to really hit the gas pedal,especially with them known for collapses in the november and december we are rob,every game is huge and i think the g-men are up for it.

      I wouldn’t say you were being crazy at all about thinking they could be 8-0 right now. In fact, I’ll do you one better and say they SHOULD be 8-0 right now. lol The Seahawks and Redskins could have easily lost those games and more to the point, should have lost them. I also think big changes are needed on special teams, I have been talking about that since last season. Those guys can lose a game for us quicker then a speeding train. Dallas looks like they are going to be our only competition this year, I don’t want to get ahead of myself but the Eagles and Redskins are almost mathematically finished for the year. The Giants can make the playoffs and should make the playoffs. Whatever happens form this point on is entirely their own doing. I for one, think they will revisit the postseason in 2011.

      I wasn’t able to watch all of his fights but I certainly love boxing and have done my homework on a lot of these guys. Joe Frazier is one of the all-time best fighters and it’s a shame we lost another great one to father time.
