Once again I find myself underwhelmed by a Giants’ performance. Perhaps I shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth, but I can’t help thinking that the Giants are 3-6 only because they have played three lousy teams in a row.

Now the NFL Gods have given the Giants a tremendous gift this week. The Packers without their QB. Green Bay is still very dangerous, so the Giants will have to do better this week. But let’s dream for a minute, let’s say they do get by the Packers. I could make the case that they get back to .500 with wins over Dallas and Washington the following two weeks. But that’s where things fall apart.

Start with a road game in San Diego. That is not an easy game by any stretch, but the next two, Seattle and @Detroit are almost guaranteed losses. So, at best the Giants are 7-8 heading into the final week and a home win against Washington is entirely possible, but this all seems like an exercise in futility. The Giants made several dumb mistakes yesterday, they only survived them because the Raiders are bad. 6-10 seems more realistic than 8-8 to me at this point.
