Just heard that the Giants set the record for beating teams in playoffs with combined win totals.

 

Beat Atlanta - they had 10 wins

Beat Green Bay - they had 15 wins

Beat San Francisco - they had 13 wins (14 counting playoffs)

Beat New England - they had 13 wins (15 counting playoffs)

 

That's 51 wins (54 counting playoffs) our beaten playoff opponents had. Interesting. Call it strength of schedule of playoff opponents.

There are still people who can't believe that 9-7 team won the Super Bowl. The Giants did have their best talent on the field most of the season, and they could have easily been 11-5 (GB and SF). When this team is healthy, they proved, they are the best in the league.

 

To be completely honest there were others we should've and could've won as well. Seattle, Philly... Hell if we actually showed up for the 2nd Washington game we would've gone into the playoffs on a 4 game winning streak.

Though had we beaten those teams, it's possible we would've rested some guys the last week against Dallas and lost momentum...not saying we would've done that across the board with all starters, but entirely possible we'd have done it with some. Might have been a blessing in disguise losing to Seattle.

Very true as well.

Resting guys at the end of the season is the dumbest move. It kills all momentum and chemistry. How often does somebody important get hurt at the end of the season?

Resting the healthy is not smart...resting the banged up and injured so that they're able to play in the playoffs more effectively is the argument, though I'm really not favoring one or the other here. I'm simply stating that had we won the additional games, we might have rested a few guys at the end of the season (Bradshaw, Nicks, etc.)...who were a bit banged up. AND, had we done that, we might have lost momentum. Therefore, it's possible to say that losing those games in the regular season may actually have been beneficial as it forced the guys to play dinged up just to get into the playoffs, and therefore maintained momentum.

Coughlin is not a rest players type of coach. Probably beat up players like Bradshaw would just get a few downs and maybe 2nd stringers in 4th quarter.

Oh I completely agree. I wasn't trying to start a debate.
