JPP doesn't believe Giants deserve playoffs

07:29 AM ET 12.24 | Over the past few weeks, the Giants sure haven't performed as a team charging toward the postseason. Instead of winning on Sunday, in their most critical game of a season gone mad, they delivered the most inexplicable performance of the year. The Giants stepped onto the field armed with the knowledge that they needed to win their final two games of the season to clinch a playoff berth. They left with a 34-13 blowout loss to the Ravens that shattered their already-fragile confidence, left their coach nearly speechless and all but eliminated them from a postseason that they don't even believe they belong in. "Do we deserve it by the way we played? Do we?" defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said. "I don't think so, man."

The Giants need four things to happen to make the playoffs:

1. They need to beat the Eagles
2. They need Washington to beat Dallas
3. They need Green Bay to beat Minnesota
4. They need Detroit to beat Chicago

I wouldn't say it's impossible. But it's asking for a lot.

JPP doesn't believe Giants deserve playoffs

And neither do we, son. Neither do we.

I really do not see it as being a choice right now. Everything changes and will more. I think there will be a lot of new faces next year. Got old in too many places and time moves on. No sad faces though, it was a good run.

At least he's being honest.

Maybe one good thing will come out of this collapse is that Corey Webster will finally be released. How he has kept a starting job is beyond me; well, no it's not - everyone else has been injured.

Right on JPP, now someone from the Steelers needs to echo your comments

December 24, 2012  09:42 AM ET

Whoever comes out of the NFC East won't get very far in the playoffs.

Yes he is...

And the Good news (for us Giants Fans) is that they Won last year...

It's tough to repeat in this league :-)

I look for the Seahawks to put down whom ever they play in the wild card round. That will be either the Cowboys/Redskins or San Fran. I don't remember who the top wild card plays, the three seed or the four. Does anyone know off hand? Where's Fifty? He always know this kind of stuff. The Bears will draw the other wild card and promptly lose. Actually with the exception of Dallas/Washington the NFC is pretty easy to predict.
Time to call my bookie.

He will be gone. Here is a list of the most likely guys gone next year that make serious money and have no or very little guaranteed money left on their contracts.

Webster $7m
Tuck $4.5m
Diel $4m
Boley $4m
Baas $4m

Snee at $6.5m and Canty at $6m could be restructures or releases. Phillips is a FA , Osi is FA. Terrell Thomas got a big contract this spring, got hurt but is still owed a lot of money. He stays and they hope he heals.

Time to get younger and move on.

They are hot and that counts for a lot.

Once the Cowboys are eliminated, and they will be, I gotta go for the Seabags the rest of the way. They've beat twice the current playoff teams of anyone else in the NFC this year. They're a tough, physical team with a great D and a solid run game that takes a lot of pressure off the QB. I don't see anybody from the NFC beating them, ie Green Bay or Atlanta.

December 24, 2012  10:32 AM ET

OK I looked it up. Wild card 1 plays Division 4. Which puts Dallas/Washington in Seattle for the wild card game. That sucks for Dallas but I'm OK for Washington to face down the cannons.

I hear that. Nobody should want to play the Seahawks right now. The look very much like the 2010 Packers and 2011 Giants, red hot at exactly the right time.

I see Atlanta has having a chance if they play Seattle in the NFC Championship game. Atlanta seems to have taken their last 2 playoff letdowns to heart and it's made them tougher this year. If Sherman gets suspended through the playoffs, either Jones or White gets singled up. That could turn out as being a very good game. Pack are under the radar a bit. I think all those defensive players they drafted are just starting to get it together and the overall D is better. Next week's game against a hot Viking team will tell a lot. Peterson has shredded the Packers for years.

If it comes to the 'hawks and 49ers I bet Smith is back at QB if he isn't this coming Sunday.

But wait. If Chicago win, and they probably will that bumps Dallas (providing they beat Washington) to the 6th seed, which means Dallas in San Fran which means hope. But only if yadayadayadayadakderufieo.......

My brain hurts now.
