I posted that I would pick NY Jets with the points and Under the total on yesterday's game although I cancelled and stayed off the game. (Not including these pick in my record for dropping the selection)
This week, my best game is NEW YORK GIANTS!
YES SHOCHUMAN!!!! I applaud your contrarian pick.
Things have been looking awful for the Giants. Defense decimated by injuries, d-line couldn't get a pass rush on Romo, first round pick Wilson can't hold the ball, Gmen turning the ball over 6 times last week!!!!
Meanwhile Denver looks like they're poised for a Superbowl run and yet they are only laying 4????
Well, the giants showed me they are a resilient group last week. Turning the ball over 5 times to the Cowboys 1 turnover, and yet they were still in position for the game winning drive w 2 minutes left till the Gmen had their 6th turnover that sealed their fate (a lucky pick 6 by Brandon Carr). If the Giants came back to win that game, that would have been one of the most remarkable regular season wins I've seen. How many teams have come that close to winning a game with a -5 turnover total? I would imagine not many.
I think Coughlin will have his team motivated to give us a much better, and more importantly, mistake-free effort this week. I also think MetLife stadium will make things a little tougher for Peyton as its the Giants home opener and they will be honoring Bill Parcells induction into the hall of fame at halftime.
As some of you know, I am a giants fan and will be attending this game so just wanted to disclose that my big blue pride might be affecting my judgement. But SHOCHUMAN was solid last year and I will be riding his pick on the GMEN!!!!
