That was a HUGE LUCKY W

The offense will need to get it together for the next several games, mainly against all NFC East teams...

It helps when the refs ignore Jacobs holding the ball over the line or defenders grabbing Plax's jersey not getting a PI call.

As a long time Jet's fan, I've got no hard feelings towards the Giants. Yes, the Giants got some nice breaks at the end to help them win. But they outplayed the Steelers anyway to deserve that win. The Giants again proved that they are still the class of the NFL and continue to impress me with their clutch play. I'd wish the Jets would be able to learn a thing or two by using the Giants as an example of how to build a solid team. How does a team lose Strahan and Osi and still not miss a beat on the D line? I also loved how Coughlin did'nt employ that dumb prevent defense when the Steelers were pinned down at the 10 yd line at the end. They kept the pressure on big Ben and did'nt give him an inch to breath. That's how you lock up a game and PREVENT a comeback! Good luck Giants as they are still the team to beat.

Lucky? Gimme a break.

This was a good old fashioned as/s kickin' by the Giants. Big Ben? Big Ben looked pretty small on the ground today. Sacked 5 times, knocked down 15 times. This is what the Giants do best, and when they do it, it isn't luck...it's exactly the game plan.

Good game by the giants no doubt. Their pass rush in the end was awesome. I like the way the defense didn't let up and play prevent at the end. I think it was hard luck we lost our long snapper. The steelers Defense held the giants to field goals all game long. They couldn't overcome the muffed snap for a safety and how many times have we seen a team score a safety and then get more points with the next drive? that's football. Hat's off to the giants I think without the injury to the long snapper the steelers would have won the game. good game anyway.

I saw a lot of holding happening with the giants offensive line that wasn't called either. the refs can't catch everything.

I agree buddy, prevent defense usually prevents you from winning.

What goes around, comes around. I can remember a long snapper costing the GMen a trip to the Super Bowl...

Bottom Line - GMen beat one of the AFC's best on their home field and Eli outplayed Ben...

"Over-rated", a "fluke", "haven't played anybody", "lucky"...we love that kinda talk!

GO GEEEEEEEEEEEEMENNNNNNNN!!!!

Now that's a guy with class and good sportsmanship. His team lost and he took it like a man and even praised the other team. I always liked the Steelers especially when they were beating the cowboys in the super bowl back in the '70s

I'm glad they won because they got ripped on that 4th down play at the goal line. The overhead replay clearly shows Jacobs breaking the plane of the end zone. And that bad call on the hit to the "defenseless WR". Aikman said it's getting too hard for DB to play these days. Great catch by Toomer, he is clutch. Great D all game except on 1st drive (somebody cover the TE) and that play by Butler. All that pressure on the last 2 drives was phenomenal. I think they ran pretty good except at the goal line. They could bounce it outside or go off tackle. They had the TE & FB go into the same hole and it just got clogged up with too many bodies. They should mix it up liked they did with the play action pass to Boss. I hate that fade route to Burress in the corner, they do it all the time, change it up with stop fade or slant once in awhile. They better beat dallas next week.

That fade probably would have worked if Burris hadn't been held. I thought the officials did a pretty lousy jon in this game. A terrible call on Phillips and some other missed holding calls.

Just found out this morning that the officials were without a back judge. No wonder we didn't see too many pass interference calls. I think it went both ways though. The Steelers were robbed too. Good game all around but a tough one to lose. Both teams played great defense but that safety/TD combo really took the wind out of the Steelers. Ben and his receivers played as poorly as Manning and his receivers against the browns. Some times your franchise guy lays an egg. Good thing there are 16 games!

What would the score have been if they could punch it in from 10. Give credit to the steeler D for holding them when they had too. Bad job by the Giant Off Coordinator. The parking lot attendant knew Jacobs was getting the ball on short yardage.

Always nice to see the Steelers lose; especially at home in front of a huge TV audience.

Nope, don't agree on this. I'm a Giant fan and happy they won of course...But I like the Steelers. Always have. Historically, they're a defense oriented team, much like the Giants and that's my kind of team.

This years Steelers especially look like a seriously rough bunch...flying to the ball, hard hitting and flat out killer against the run.
You gotta at least respect that.

Yeah, what the hell was that? They could have at least tried a sweep once, maybe a misdirection...something besides up the middle, up the middle, up the middle. It felt like a flashback from two years ago when you knew what the Giants were going to do on every play.

Didn't you notice his name "Bert Jones", he's a Colts fan! He's just sore because his team is going down hill.

That's probably true but, I prefer the play action pass to the TE. I was screaming for that all last year.

That holding call on Colon was obvious. I think Tuck would have hit Ben before he threw the TD, either way it was a big sigh of relief to see the flag. With Berger limping and a backup snapper, I had a feeling something was going to happen on the punt. He actually kick a long one before but was grabbing at his quad.
