Burress is hurt and the team hasn't addressed the lack of a down field threat. That WAS the difference yesterday. Not the defense. They played well enough till the last touchdown.

Question: why can't the Giants do what the Packers did. When they are in need of a player to fill a position, call around the league. The Packers owe the Giants a favor for supplying their running back.

Giants, Wake up and smell the pig skin leather! To say we had Dallas in the 1st half, but penalties cost us in the 2nd half resulting in the philosophy that we "just beat ourselves" is a joke! Dallas also killed itself in the 1st half with penalities (some called unfairly when it was the Giants pushing a Dallas player first and it was called on Dallas; and a face mask by a Giant player (we all saw but the refs) that was not called on the Giants, and holding by the Giants (we all saw, too) and again, not called against the Giants. It almost looked that the refs were on the Giants side. So iIt was about time in the 2nd half that the Giants were called for holding and more, as they surely did on Dallas in the 1st half.!
Additionally, When we sack you star quarterback 5 times, we are the ones winning at the line. Not to mention Romo and his go to guys! Dallas is just a better team with better players and better weapons this year! Hopefully, that will continue! But in many seasons past, the Giants were the better team, and when they were, as a Cowboy fan, I recognized it and accepted it! It is time that the New York Giants coaches and players (as well as thir fans) recognized it, too.

I accept it, but the one significant player that separates the two teams is at quarterback. Romo is clearly better than Manning and that won't change. Otherwise, player-for-player, these teams match up pretty evenly.

Hmm, I don't know about that. Yes, Romo is better than Manning, but the truth is, the game was won and lost in the trenches.

Manning sacked 5 times, and hurried at least that many times more. The pocket collapsed like it was a bubble getting squished under water.

On the flip side, the Cowboys had lots of time to run and throw. As Madden would say, smash mouth football.

Yes, Manning stunk up the joint, but he didn't let up the 75 points during the two games.

If you read the newspapers today, in typical media fashion, you'd think the Giants season is over. Coughlin got short with the media, and of course those self serving jerks start writing the gloom and doom scenario. One game that's all it was. Did anyone really think the Giants were better than the Cowboys? Maybe they could have split with them, but at this point the Cowboys are better. The Giants can win a wild card slot, and possibly a home game at that.
While we are on the subject, I hate the fact that the NFL gives a bye to the 1st and 2nd teams in each conference. Every other sport makes the playoff teams play an equal amount of playoff games. There is an unfair advantage to having a bye. Either get rid of the Wild Card and make only the 4 Division winners playoff, or add 2 more wild cards and everyone play an equal amount of playoff games with no byes for anyone.
