Will the underdog Gmen prevail on Sunday? I am not optimistic. The Giants are angry at the world, and they need a win badly. Interestingly, a win and they are in first place in the division...! So everyone knows there is plenty at stake. They have been their own worst enemy the past 3 weeks, so the theory goes that if they play to their potential, why not beat Dallas at home?
I am suspect of two things that stand in the way of a Giants victory: Manning and the secondary. In the markets it is called not picking bottoms. I do not know where the bottom is for Manning and I am not about to call the turn this week when I have not seen the weakest link play 4 quarters of football ALL YEAR. And our hobbled secondary will face Romo, who is playing better than Grossman, Garrard and Young combined. The Giants may get off to a good start, but can Manning and the secondary finish? The objective answer is no. We need a big pass rush to help the secondary and I do not think Umenyiora (in his first week back) will be able to make the difference.
Giant optimists have one ray of hope.... Blezow has blessed us with a Cowboys Best Bet. Our prognostication hero is batting ~0.350.
