NEW YORK – Hello Giants Fans, the internet and twitter has been exploding with a ton of trash talk this week. I can honestly say that I do not remember a game in recent memory with this much hype. For some reason, the 49ers fans out there in cyberspace are insecure about their team pulling off a victory on Sunday night. Now, the San Francisco fans have every right to feel confident about the 49ers in this game because they have a very good football team and earned their place in the NFC Championship game. All of this trash talk isn’t necessary and only shows the true fear and embarrassment the ‘San Fans’ would like to avoid with a win. Unfortunately, I think those fans will be greatly disappointed come late Sunday night but they still had a great season and should be commended.
I do not want to sound overconfident but I really believe in my heart that the G-Men will be back in the Super Bowl. There is something in my gut that tells me the 49ers will not be able to overcome the Giants defense. If you give me a choice between 49ers QB Alex Smith or Giants QB Eli Manning versus equally solid defenses, I have to take Eli Manning. And I’m not just saying this because I root for Big Blue. I think NFL fans from every city in America would agree with me, except in San Francisco of course but the numbers don’t lie. Eli Manning is a superior QB to Alex Smith. The Giants defense will need to have a solid game and the front four will need to do their thing and knock down QB Alex Smith often. The Giants have the best front four in the NFL and they will need those guys to play like a bunch of crazed dogs out there on Sunday. I also expect RB Brandon Jacobs to run hard after former 49ers WR Jerry Rice called him soft. I’m sure the current 49ers players didn’t appreciate Rice sticking his nose into their business like that and angering a real Giant in Brandon the Bull.
I’ve already mentioned how I believe speed will play a big role in a Giants victory and I’m sticking to that. The weather report calls for rain on Sunday night, which will only make the game more interesting. Yes, it will certainly effect a few plays during the game but we will have to wait and see just how bad the weather is before making any further predictions. The one prediction that will not change in my mind is a Giants win by the score of 28-27. In other words, I’m all in.
What group of Giants players will be the most crucial to a New York win?
