I'm aware of the commonly accepted interpretation of these "giants," but the truth of the matter is, the actual translation of the Hebrew term (nephiyl, or nephil) means, simply, "tyrant," or "bully," and not some extraordinarily large man at the top of a beanstalk, or guarding vegetables for a kid named "Sprout." But, that's an excellent observation, indeed! By examining the verse, it seems to do more than just imply that these "giants" were alive and well even before these "sons of God" decided to come "into the daughters of men."
