The New York Football Giants are only a couple seasons removed from hoisting the NFL’s ultimate prize: the Vince Lombardi Trophy. In fact, the Jints have been the champions of the world twice in the past seven years. That means they were the best team the NFL had to offer. Twice.
Better than Eagles, the Cowboys and especially the Redskins. The Giants are the cream of the crop in the NFC East. Probably the best team in the NFL. Yep, better than the Patriots, better than the Broncos, better than the Saints, better than the Packers, better than the Ravens, better than the 49ers and better than the Seahawks.
Wait… better than the Seahawks? They just won the Super Bowl. How can the Giants be better than the reigning world champs? I don’t know, but they are.
The NFL is about war. It’s about battle. It’s about trash talk. It’s about two teams meeting on the gridiron to pound each other into submission. Players risk their well being every snap… Spines are bent backwards… Knees are shredded… Elbows are hyper-extended… Bones snap… Ego’s shatter… Tendons tear and players tear. Every play livelihood is on the line. For every player, each play could literally and sadly be their last. For football is war. It’s the best athletes in the free world beating on each other with millions of dollars on the line.
Fans watch the carnage, but more importantly, they live for the story lines and thrive vicariously through their armored Sunday warriors. From fantasy football to pee wee leagues for preschoolers all the way up NFL shuffleboard in nursing homes — football is everywhere. It’s on your phone, tablet, laptop, and PC, not to mention the traditional TV. Sponsors are emptying their pockets to the NFL. High Definition TV’s are becoming standard in large part because of the NFL.
This season, the Giants have reloaded with speed. Odell Beckham Jr is a football weapon. He’s the type of player that can go from end zone to end zone before you take your first sip of beer. His speed is the stuff of legend and he makes people miss with skill and vision so good they’re considering renaming Lasik surgery to OBJ. It’s Football Science, don’t question it.
