Drew Brees might have been the early front-runner for MVP, but against the Giants, he was the cause of the Saints' demise, as he threw three devastating interceptions to help the G-men pull out the 26-21 win.

 

Eli Manning played like the real MVP of the game, completing 24 of 38 passes for 288 yards, two touchdowns and, most importantly, zero turnovers.

 

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed only 10 times for New York, but he made the most of every time he touched the ball, racing for 94 yards in helping the Giants jump to a perfect 6-0 on the season.

Hate to say it, but that does seem pretty accurate. I think it can go either way, and if it was in the Meadowlands I would say without a doubt, we will see. This is winnable for the Saints, but its gonna be all about the turnover ratio. And on paper the matchup does not favor the Saints.

Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you. Being unbeaten means jack shit to me...as long as we come out ahead at the end of the season...playoffs and possible SB....that is all I care about.

even winning your division is not necessarily better once in the playoffs.

Slow linebackers, CC Brown, and no Aaron Ross meant that it was the Giants who couldn't match up with the Saints.

 

Give the Giants Boley and KP and that game is at minimum a close one. But the Saints are a great team, gotta give them their due. Barring a major injury to Brees, I think that is your NFC South champion and they are going to make noise in the playoffs, particularly if they have home field advantage.

True, you dont go against a QB like Drew Brees with your starting SS and CB as well as a speedy LB out, and not stand the chance of gettin picked apart. Theyre on a roll rite now, its hard to stop them. Where I want o be hot is after the bye heading into the playoff stretch. We should have a fair amount of these guys back when that time comes.
