Predictions: Packers vs. Giants

Ahmad Bradshaw

The X factor?

Shawn: I started writing a lot longer and analytical breakdown of this week’s matchup with the Giants, but then I figured I was wasting my time, as in, more than usual.

The Giants are a true Jekyll & Hyde team. No one knows what the hell they are going to do on any given Sunday. They have a QB who is the aww shucks version of Tony Romo. They have a defense that can dominate when it gets to the QB or quit like it did on Monday.

They want this game, but they are hardly in a must-win situation. They only have five losses and still have two games left against Dallas that will decide their division. I’m sure everyone knows about them ending the Broncos’ streak in ’98 and then of course the Patriots 10 years later. The thing is, neither of those games will help the Giants even one iota.

Sure, it means they won’t be intimidated. Who cares? Neither were the last 17 teams the Packers beat.

The bottom line is that the Packers have won 17 in a row, and the Giants have been playing like crap. The Giants HAVE to have Ahmad Bradshaw or this is a walk. Fortunately for them, it sounds like they’ll have him. They won’t have Osi Umenyiora though, and if they don’t get sacks to end drives, they’re finished.

The Giants would need all of that and more to beat the Packers. They’ll give it a spirited shot like the teams before them, but like I said last week, picking against the Packers right now is just stupid.

Monty: After hearing all the blather about how this is the last, best chance for someone to beat the Green Bay Packers all week, it’s hard not to buy into that hype.

Yeah, the New York Giants have talent. Certainly their backs are against the wall. They’re on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs go after losing three games in a row. The Giants need to win Sunday’s game and they’re playing in the friendly confines of The Meadowlands.

All that being said, the Giants are not nearly as talented as the Packers. Can they beat the Packers?

Sure. Anyone can beat anyone on any given Sunday in the NFL.

Should they beat the Packers? Nope.

The Giants defense was terrible last week against the New Orleans Saints. Their supposedly vaunted pass rush was nonexistent and it isn’t going to get any better this week because Osi Umenyiora is out. On top of that, New York’s secondary is their weakness, which, as you know, plays to the Packers advantage.

The reason the Packers lose this game is because of turnovers. They haven’t lost that battle this season, though. Despite all the pundits saying this is the game the Packers lose, I don’t buy it.

The Giants are a beaten-down shell of the team that led the NFC East earlier this season. The Packers are on a roll.

    The Giants havn’t proven shit all year. Yeah so what if they beat the Pats. New England isn’t the team they used to be. The Giants indeed suck donky balls. Green Bay has to play like the 1985 Packers to lose this game.

    Hey Hacksaw, Looks like that was wishful thinking on your part. If Cappers doesn’t get his act together and show some improvement in the Packer defense, especially against the pass, the Packers will have difficulty in the playoffs. No way should we had to squeak by the Giants today.

    Defense? This game is a blowout if the Packers don’t drop so many passes.

    This team has won 18 effin games in a row. 18. Beat the Raiders and this team will go an entire calendar year without losing a football game. It is insane.

    Once again, the Packers never trailed in the 2nd half.

    All this team does is WIN.

    Difficulty in the playoffs? Whatever… Bring it the fuck on.

    BTW, the Saints at home are in trouble against the Lions. Yeah, the team the Packers just smoked.

    So, so much for them.

    Hey Flyboy7578, go fuck your negative self. I didn’t see your prediction up there. It’s easy to judge predictions after knowing the results. The Pack is 12 – 0 so you can eat a dick.

    Hey Hacksaw, what’s your problem. I’ve been a packer fan for over 40 yrs. Take your attitude and shove it or I’ll come up to Green Bay and shove your balls down your throat. I have to tolerance for shitheads like you.
