I have to admit, I didn't watch much of the second half. I got more interested in cleaning the garage and taking a sledgehammer to the ice that had been collecting on the sidewalk alongside our house - it's melting, but not fast enough!

First half was another "I'll be awful, okay now YOU be awful" affair, but it looks like Eli finally did SOMETHING and they'll face Dallas next week, where they'll surely come crashing back to earth. (Or will they?)

The ANNOYING part is, since this game actually finished in under three hours, we now have this dead half hour before the NEXT game. Now's the PERFECT time to....oh, go clean the garage or take a sledgehammer to the ice. D'oh!

If the Eli Manning of the past 2 weeks shows up again, they'll give Dallas a hell of a game, and it'll be a toss-up, and he actually did fairly well there week 1. I still worry about the Giants secondary, because, as Brady showed in week 17, and Romo showed twice, the Giants secondary occaasionally becomes lax in certain basic concepts, like "covering", and "tackling".

What this win DID do though, unless next week is a 63-3 drubbing, or something like that, is it saved Tom Coughlin's job. 3 straight one-and-outs probably would have doomed him.

I know that Week 17 game against Washington was supposed to be a "rest" game and the Cowboys were supposedly half-assing it all the way, but what if, by some small chance, THAT Cowboys team shows up next week? It might be a closer game than anyone thinks.

Or worse, what if Jessica Simpson shows up?

All I know is, Packers fans will be rooting for New York next week. No way does Brett Favre want to play in Dallas, where he's been ineffective his entire career.

Shockey breaking his leg might turn out to be the salvation of the Giants offense. Now, Eli doesn't have to worry about his temper tantrums and his key drops and can throw to a tight end who can catch the football.
If Bradshaw and Jacobs can provide solid yardage and Eli can avoid turnovers, the Giants have a shot, especially since Romo and Bum's Son are going to be under the microscope in the game, especially if the Giants can jump out to an early advantage.

Obviously, I'm rooting for the Giants next week, but the downside of a NY win will be the continued slurping of Eli Manning by Buck/Aikman. It's bad enough when announcers do this for Brady or Favre, but at least they've done something in their careers. After two good games in a row, they sounded like they wanted to throw Eli a damn parade.

I am guessing Aikman won't be so pro-Manning calling the Cowboys/Giants game.

The Giants have only lost once on the road this season, and that was at Dallas, so maybe they gain some redemption Sunday.

Ahmad Bradshaw is a blast to watch run.

I am cautiously optimistic about next week's game, but I did start having palpitations when the Bucs got the ball back at 24-14 before the McQuarters interception.

Never fails, every game I watch, the Giants lose. I turned on and saw a Tampa TD, and turned the TV right back off.
