Remember when the Giants put up a dud against the Steelers a few weeks back? Everyone just wanted to write this team off. “Same old Giants. They’ll fall apart. They won’t get it done.” My god for a team that won 2 Super Bowls in a 5 year span, we have some of the most nervous and unfaithful fans out there. Ye of little faith.
I, on the other hand, kicked my feet up on the couch, sat back, and said that We Are Fine. I’ve been so confident in this team all season that there was absolutely ZERO reason to jump ship.
Two weeks have passed and since that Steelers game, the GMENNNNNNNNNN are 10-4 and are on the brink of the playoffs. No surprises there. This team has found ways to win and it all starts on defense. The Giants defense is on another planet right now. We’re getting pressure on the QB, creating turnovers, and forcing punts. That, my friends, is a recipe for success.
The offense has still not even reached its full potential. I mean this team has not even scored over 30 points this year and they’re 10-4. Just a testament to how mentally tough this team is and just how far they’ve come since last year. The running game is starting to click with Perkins getting some more time. Odell Beckham Jr. is Odell Beckham Jr. aka the most talented player in this league.
I’m telling you this team is due for an offensive breakout. Whether it be these last two weeks or (hopefully) the playoffs, it’s coming.
Now here is the biggest story of the game in my opinion: The injury to Janoris Jenkins. Let me be the first to say that we can make the playoffs without Jenkins. This team is not just one player. That being said, Jenkins is necessary for the playoffs. His ability to lock down team’s #1 WR’s is irreplaceable. I’m praying that this is just a small or minor injury. Hell, I hope it’s just a bruise. It would be a shame if the Jackrabbit is seriously injured. He’s one of the cornerstones of this defense and we need him. If he has to sit this Thursday on a short week, I’m fine with it. Get healthy. Get healthy. Get healthy.
Unofficially but I think it’s official but don’t quote me on this: If I did the math correctly, a win in these next two games and the Giants clinch. Win and in. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Rejoice Giants fan. Everything is going to be alright. See you on Thursday, Philly.
P.S. IT’S COLOR RUSH WEEK AND WE HAVE THE NICEST JERSEYS IN THE HISTORY OF COLOR RUSH.
