The Giants Are In Fine Playoff Position, Whether You Like It Or Not

I am not a Giants homer. I mean, maybe I am, but that has not informed my take that the New York Giants are in a great position to make the post season. That opinion is based on the facts.

The Giants have won three straight games. They have been some ugly, sloppy games, but the Giants have won ’em, and the standings don’t take style points into consideration.

The Giants are getting healthy. Andre Brown looked great in his season debut, rushing for 115 yards and a touchdown. The pass rush is starting to show some signs of existence, and the secondary has continued to prove their suitability. All of that suggests that the Giants, who are coached by a future Hall of Famer, my begin to tighten up their assignments and improve on both sides of the ball.

Most importantly, Big Blue plays in the NFC East, and the NFC East is awful. The Cowboys sit atop the division at 5-5, with the taste of a 49-17 loss sitting dryly on their tongues. The Eagles are also an inconsistent 5-5 with a quarterback controversy. Quarterback controversies never end well. And the Redskins? Well the Redskins are 3-6, and with two games left against the Giants this year, New York can effectively end their season with two victories.

Oh, and the Giants have the Packers at home next week, who’ll be trotting out Aaron Rodgers’ back up’s back up.

So, yeah, I’d say the Giants have a chance. Eli Manning has been bad this year, and the Giants have been turning the ball over too much, but they’re still a team that’s won a some Super Bowls, so you can’t tell me they don’t have some disciplined football in ’em somewhere. I understand that they haven’t beaten a signal caller worth a damn, but the rest of the division has let them under perform and get away with it so far. There is a difference between deserving to be a team in a playoff race, and actually being in a playoff race. The way they’ve played they have no business being alive and well, but the fact of the matter is they are.
