i have a feeling Carolina will win, even though i dont like picking against the Giants who were 8-1 at home (if you count that B.S home game they got vs. The Saints)

The problem is the defense is letting Carolina pick up dink and dunk first down after first down keeping the offense off the field so long that they have no rhythm.

These two long third down conversions are huge. The giants should of got the ball back in great field position, but now the Panthers have field position and a ton of momentum.

Turnovers kill you in the playoffs. Hate to see Wilson :( be the one to make a huge mistake.

Its a 2 score game because of that mistake rather then a 1 score game going into halftime!

10-0 Panthers at halftime, The Giants need to wake up

Despite the fact that Carolina completely outplayed the Giants in the first half, the fact remains that the score is still only 10-0.

It only takes a few plays for momentum to shift. How the Giants come out of the locker room in the second half is extremely important. The team really needs points on its opening drive.

On the Shockey play, Down by contact? :rolleyes: Another game changing bad call by the refs. They have been awful all season.

The Giants got lucky there

and now the panthers were lucky. at least it seems to be on both sides.

of course not. but the worst thing that can happen is bad officiating that only helps one team. but no question. the refs have to get better next year, especially on these non reviewable plays.

...horrible throw!

Terrell Buckley isn't having a very good day. Giants better start doing something to Steve Smith soon or it's over. 17-0 already.

Amazing how teams that fall behind just 7-0 seem to implode.

Eli Manning will be a great QB in the future, but he just wasn't ready for this. It's still not "over" yet, but the momentum/tendencies of this game don't tend to tell me the tide will turn.

Why? Is there any reason in the world you dislike him? Any good reason, I should say?

He's going to be an amazing QB in a few years. That he's struggling in his first playoff game ever? Not surprising. Peyton lost his first too at home.

Every season the fans go "this is the worst the officials have been". and they're never right.

didn't change anything either. Giants punted.

I should clarify that I am not talking about his quarterback ability at all. I'm talking about him being a great big John Deerr-sized tool.

And the reasons he is full of toolage are many... start with the embarassingly petulant draft day performance. Continue with his pre-draft toolness and his subsequent press conference toolosity.

so, provided Carolina doesn't meltdown in the meadowlands (which i've seen numerous times by "OTHER" teams before). I will be 2-1 on my playoff picks this weekend...if only i hadn't picked against Gibbs, damnit!, and provided Pittsburgh wins i'll be in pretty good shape :)

Welp, whatever, but enjoy it while it lasts. Eli is going to be a premiere QB and you better enjoy his miscues while you can.

intercepted....that was the worst interception return i've ever seen....the guy fell down like 8 times and lost 15 yards of field position reversing his field because he couldn't get up.

Yep. This is really why the Giants needed a strong running game today. Eli just couldn't handle the pressure today.

He'll be back. Common tendency for young QBs to try to think they have to make up the entire game on one play and then throw a silly pass across the field.

Oh, I will. I've already enjoyed it for a long time. And, personally, I think I'll get to enjoy it for longer than you think.

You probably believe that since he is in his second year (first full) and still struggling, and nowadays in the NFL, QBs are considered by most in the media and the public to have reached the peak of their potential after 2 years (which of course, is a fallacy).

No, actually, that's not why I believe, the opposite actually. I think he still has a ways to develop. I think he will be less than stellar for a while still.

I also don't think he was ever going to be as good as his brother... which he almost has to be to justify what the Giants paid for him.

Metal Panda

Peyton certainly succeeded earlier and it's hard to argue that Eli has been thrown into a "bad" situation to win....

time will tell who will be better.
