I am hoping the bye week and a hearty Thanksgiving meal will be enough to get our New York Giants out of their usual November slump and back to being a contender for this year’s Super Bowl. There really is nothing better than a Sunday night showdown versus the Green Bay Packers. The Giants in past seasons have consistently brought their A game against Green Bay, especially when it’s necessary around playoff time. Unfortunately the Cheesehead ego is pretty big right now as they come to MetLife having won five games in a row. While on the other hand the Giants have shown a lack of effort in the past games (that Bengals game was a joke) and need to get in playoff gear. The Packers defense has weakened since last season which is a positive for New York. Aaron Rodgers is solid as always firing passes into the endzone and I’ve seen NY stop him before and now they can stop him again. Over the bye week I can only hope that Kevin Gilbride drilled some offensive play making into the heads of Big Blue to avoid yet another November embarrassment.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving,
