ESPN: Why New York Giants Will Recover

Why is this Giants slump different from all other slumps? Because this one is powered by a massive personal slump for Eli Manning, three straight games below 0 DYAR. That's almost unheard of for a quarterback of his quality, and a good reason to believe the Giants can bounce back.

Noooo! Dammit! You're supposed to write about how Eli is done and Coughlin needs to be fired, so then they can go on their Super Bowl run when everybody writes them off! This is just not acceptable.

The Giants are like the really smart kid you knew in high school who always self destructed because he couldn't handle the pressure of expectations. The one who smoked a lot of pot because he didn't want to be seen as smart, but wound up getting a 1500 on his SATs, and is now working as a hedge fund manager with three kids in the suburbs.

That's the saddest thing I ever heard.

At this point, I don't see how the Giants could lose the Superbowl.

But what if the Pats fall short in the playoffs and Bill Belichick isn't on the field??! He's their lucky charm! (NYG is 4-0 in Super Bowls with Belichick involvement; 0-1 otherwise.)
