Like JoeRed I think its partly the vets happy that the circus is gone and trying to keep it gone, but also the young and new guys who are trying to prove themselves and don’t really have any part or care about whats happened in the past. Really great to see. With a team this young its very important because most these guys need all the time they can get meshing together and learning to be better players.
I agree. I still think this is an 8-8 team but they are not going to be "out worked" any longer by another team. They might not play well all the time, but it will not be due to lack of preparation and the will to win. BIG change over the last 10 years around this organization and just happy to see it!

Re: Victory Monday

All day I thought how bittersweet it would be because of the anniversary of 9/11. With New York getting beat up that bad ten years ago, it almost felt wrong to root against them. But the Jets and Bills made me feel better about that ;-). On cloud 9 for a week!

The giants have been a serious monkey on our backs for years now. We never seem to play them well for some reason. I think that's the root of the excitement from yesterday. Not just that we won but we didn't look incompetent versus NY when we usually do.

I don't care what it takes, when Fletcher retires he needs to move to a staff role.

Re: Victory Monday

one thing no one seems to have noticed: We scored 28 points! We only did that twice last year. Felt good for a change that on the last possession I wasnt on the edge of the couch with my blood pressure dangerously high.

Re: Victory Monday

I think it's a really good sign. The players really want to put in the work that its going to take to win.

It sure was nice to have a 14 point lead to work with late in the game for a change!

Re: Victory Monday

Loved yesterdays game, it was nice watching our D dominate. Yes the Giants have some injuries but not on the offensive side, thats who they are on offense. No more Steve Smith no more Boss our D looking dominate is a great thing!

As for our O vs their D yes they had injuries but that is part of the game and we took advantage of it.

I loved the fact that Grossman played well and Mcnabb cost the Vikings a game! Now they can feel our pain from last year.

Running game wasn't as good as I was hoping but it got the job done and did enough to win the game.

I'm just about to do the exact same thing. The best part about it is that my boss is a Giants fan.

Yep. And thanks for picking up on the fact i meant to say it "wasnt" Shanahan, not that it "was" Shanahan.

I too believe we are more of a 8-8 team than anything else but in the sense that we are more of a 9-7 than a 7-9 team….. meaning we’re not a struggling 8-8 team we are solid 8-8 team. I love having no big ego guys on our team. The biggest ego guys we have are Hall, Trent Williams and LL. Its a good thing that thats not saying much. Good vibs right now.
