Giants the better team

Wow! The Giants deserved this win. They were the better team.

The Giants' defensive line neutralized the Packers' running game the entire game. The Giants' defense shut down the Pack in the second half. To do so in Lambeau in these conditions is very impressive.

And, what can I say about Eli Manning. He has grown up in the last four weeks. He was absolutely brilliant today. He didn't make any mistakes and he did what he had to do.

Plaxico Burress couldn't be stopped. He made Al Harris look foolish. I didn't expect that.

Congrats to the Giants. They deserve it.

Giants a very worthy opponent

Everyone has been mentioning the N.Y. Giants' pass rush as a key to the team's success. However, to me, it's been the consistent play of Eli Manning, who has been very solid in his previous four games. He's playing well and has limited his mistakes.

On another note, the Giants will travel to Green Bay and will have a very good chance of winning at Lambeau Field. The temperature is expected to be very cold, which could benefit the Giants' defense. Everyone knows the secondary is banged up and that Brett Favre will attempt to exploit it. However, if it's cold and if both teams are relagated to running the ball, that's to New York's advantage.
