Congrats to the G men and most of their fans. There are a few in section 329 that I'm holding back my good wishes from. Enjoy it this week. But remember, before all those visions of grandeur start to take on momentum as you watch and listen to the "experts" tell you the Giants have a chance, the Bucs were not the Dallas Cowboys! Don't be fooled by a rough December in Cowboy land. They will be rested and very hungry as they start their Super Bowl run. So make all of your Jessica Simpson jokes now, chant all of your stupid Romo rhymes, and get your giggles out, because next Sunday night the party's over! Something along the lines of COWBOYS 34 - Giants 17.

The Giants will have to be sound with mixing Bradshaw and Jacobs - the key to victory is keeping the Dallas defense on the field as much as possible

i agree. Manning has to control the clock and keep cowboy's offense off the field. pound Jacobs over and over and let him beat up the line a bit and then turn BRadshaw loose as change of pace. i dont buy into the Jessica or the Carrie nderwood crap. what is Romo a high school kid. Tom BRady dates Giselle Bundchen for Pete's sake. ya dont get much hotter than the hottest Vic Secret model ever. her legs go up and up and up...
i like the Giants, one 1 hand the Cowboys have their # but onthe other it's tough to beat a team 3 times straight in same season. i think they need to hit Romo hard and dont give hm time to pick receivers. as good as Webster played yest and they arehoping to get madisonback, i dont see either one of them covering T.O.. he's too fast, too strong, and too physical. he WILL go over themiddle if asked and he's a damn talented receiver. hate him if ya want but dont ignor ehim-he'll run right by you.

Playing Dallas will be another challenge but lets face it, we held our own against the Pats and beat the Bucs who were supposed to beat us easily.

People could say what they want but I would bet the Cowboys won't take the G-Men lightly, not if they followed them the last couple weeks.

The scarey part is some analyst are even picking the Giants. I would rather them all pick the Cowboys and keep us extreme underdogs. We play better that way.

It's another away game and the big difference this time is Dallas will not being seeing the same Giants. They are peeking at the right time.

Hey Tony - please tell me you're from Dallas or at least Texas. Or are just like my cousins from Queens who are bunch of band-wagoners from NY that just happen to like Dallas. If so, you're not even considered a sports fan. And I sure hope you're on the board Monday so I can shove your words right back in your mouth. 34-17 - yeah right in your bandwagon dreams. If you're a Dallas fan from NY you're a pathetic wannabe fan that is never taken seriously.

Look out brokeback Cowboys, Eli's coming. We're going to run it, pound the rock & bomb Roy Williams deep. Our QB has a playoff victory. Plus Lisa Simpson will be at the game. First Eli takes their pride, then he takes Romo's girl. 27-20 G-Men

And I suppose you're a Cowboys fan because you didn't want to be a fan of the Cardinals? If so, you're just another casual bandwagon fan.

Ok let me put everyone in there place, Eli is still Eli, and this game against the Cowboys is going to put the pressure right back into the hands of Eli....can he have two good games in a row with a win, we're not talking Peyton. Cowboys have one of the top run defense in the league, and Demarcus Ware, who will be all over Eli, and then we have two of the best recievers with Owens and Glenn, not to mention the best tight end in the league, so let's put it all in perspective, the Cowboys by no means are Tampa. Get ready Packers/Seattle because we will be.

I am not a Giant fan, but I will pull for them next week and the next if they beat the Cowboys. I want Tiki to eat his words, he talked so much crap and retired at mid season to create a fuss. He may say he is fine with retiring but that is not true. He knows the Giants have a real shot at beating anybody in the NFC. He surely regrets his decision to retire. I hope the Giants get to the SB just to watch Tiki's expression on NBC, I hope it happens and Bob Costas and Betis rip into him.

I guess if given a choice, I'd like that. But we had some young guys behind Tiki, and as good as Tiki was(and he was), a lot of credit for his success needs to go to Coughlin(fumbling)and the O-line.
I was pissed at some of what Tiki said, but our running game really didn't miss a beat.
Go Giants.

The key to the Giants obtaining a different result the third time around is one thing, and one thing only--the health and effectiveness of Terrell Owens. It was the Giants' inability to effectively eliminate both Owens and Witten, along with their failure to put real pressure on Romo (directly related to their inability to cover those two All-pro receivers at the same time and rushing only four) that caused the Giants to lose both previous games by double digits.

Maybe in the 2 previous games, but this is different. Manning must be super to have a chance, Cowboys win with or without T.O...

For the sake of my wife and I leaving Texas Stadium with a smile on our faces Sunday, I hope you are right, but apparently it is going to be WITH T.O. anyway.
