NFL  > New York Giants  > NY Giants in the end, talk is cheap
January 17, 2012, 02:33 PM
As a 49er fan, I am not going to down play the skill of the New York Giants. I respect their team and know they present a huge challange to the Niners this weekend. But I do not respect the running of their mouths. Confidence is one thing, but arrogant guarantees are another. If the Niners do win this game, the words of one of your own should be repeated to the face of the idiots that want to act like God's gift to the football world. "It's time to shut up fat boy"

They sure are critical of Fat Cheeks and his guarantees, now some of their players are acting just like him.

I am in no way a hater of the Giants, and I wish their fans well, but a victory against them this weekend will be oh so sweet not only because it would send my team to the Super Bowl, but it would shove the feet of some arrogant fools straight down their throats. You get respect where you give respect, quit acting like a bunch of punks in a pick up game and pretent like the professionals your paychecks say you are.

Tuck made a comment regarding Smith being nothing more than a game manager. Let's see how he manages this next game.

Just read where the only other time two #1 picks played each other in a championship game was in 98' when John Elway played Vinny and the Jets. (Eli and A. Smith)

The Giants product on the field has been impressive the last few weeks. Seems they are peaking on both sides of the ball and will be a handful for the 49ers. I'm torn between this game. I love what 1st yr coach Harbaugh has done, galvanizing this team, and going old school with a power run offense complimented by a stout defense, and great special teams.

The Giants on the other hand are playing great football, and Eli is throwing the ball all over the place with Cruz, Nicks, Manningham and Ballard. This offense is fun to watch, and the defense is no slouch either. I wish the Eagles didn't pass on JPP during that draft, that dude is good.
I'm hoping for the best game of the season thus far with this upcoming game, with the Giants edging S.F. by 3. (my uncle is a Giants fan, and in-laws are from N.Y...sorry)

I think if the Niners can hang a potent Saints offense they can coral Eli and the Giants offense, I think the Giants have to establish their run game more so against the Niners than they did the Packers. The Niners Defense is a whole lot better than they faced at Lambo. Should be a good game to watch.

Problem being the 49ers D is #1 vs the run, Eli will have to sling it and build a lead. The Saints D isn't quite the Giants D, so Alex Smith will have a harder time playing from behind...but nonetheless your right about trying to establish a ground game. Will be a tall order against that 49er D.

Being #1 against the run I think teams give up on their run game and that's when the Niners get their picks/turnovers, patience is key against the old school team like the Niners and taking what they give and have to make the most of the opportunities that may be there. The Saints were impatient and not used to playing from behind and forced some things which plays right into the Niners philosophy.

I'm picking the Niners to win with ease. The Giants haven't been impressive all year with the exception of their playoff games against Atlanta & Green Bay. The Niners will bring them back down to earth.

the giants are peaking just like they did several years ago. and eli is proving to be among the NFL's elite QBs. giants win this one as easily as they did against the packers.... in fact, the packers are probably a better team than the 49ers. i'm pulling for the 49ers, but expect a giants win.

The 49ers are a more complete team than the Packers, 1- They have probably the best special teams group in the NFL. 2- They have arguably the best defense in the league. Ask yourself two very important questions Would SF beat GB and would NYG's beat NO if rolls were reversed. I have no doubt the 49ers would beat GB- GB was hurting and not focused near the end of the season. I'll let others speculate whether the Giants beat NO.

I hope the Niners whoop the crap outta Eli and the Giants!!!

I expect nothing less than some smash mouth football with this match-up. There is nothing finesse about either team...and who can impose ones will over the other will be key.
Its a great match-up, but I think Eli and his receivers out produce Alex Smith and Vernon Davis.
Both teams can run the ball...that will be a push.
