A few weeks ago I titled a post “Worst Defense in the League.” Sunday night, they were the opposite. Sack happy, setting records, embarrassing the Eagles offensive line. As they should. As they should.
Osi Umenyiora was, dare I say GODlike racking up SIX sacks. The team had 12 in an easy 16-3 win over an Eagles team crippled with injuries. Philadelphia had so many injuries, it’s hard to know what to think about where the Giants stand as a team. These are the hard facts of the bigger picture.
1) Dallas is going to win the East. The Boys are a beast and clearly are the team to beat in the NFC. So the Giants are playing for a wild card spot.
2) The only other teams in the conference worthy of any respect are Green Bay and Seattle. It’s crazy to say this after the way the season started, but the Giants could very well be the 4th best team in the NFC.
3) The NFC sucks. This is a good thing.
4)Tom Coughlin might be saving his job. This could be a bad thing.
The Giants are 2-2, and if you could handpick any two teams for them to beat so far, it would probably be Washington and Philadelphia. The season is strangely going well now. Very strange indeed.
