Giants looking for a bigger celebration

Giants_notebook_468_medium

Everywhere I look this morning, there are stories about how the New York Giants are not celebrating the fact that they are NFC East champions.

Come on now. Even if the Giants had won Sunday against Philadelphia, do you think there would have been a big celebration of their NFC East title? No way. Not from a team with a Super Bowl title in its pocket, and its eyes on another one. Everything else is nice, and something to be proud of, but for this team the Super Bowl is the prize to be celebrated.

Here is center Shaun O'Hara on the division title.

"It's nice to call yourselves division champs but at the same time, what did we miss out on?" O'Hara asked. "High-fives, a few hugs, a T-shirt and a hat, after you get that it's back to business because being division champs doesn't really mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. Last year we weren't division champs and things worked out pretty well. It's not a milestone, it's just another step in the process."

"I would say that we didn’t swarm to the ball the way we have been probably defensively," Coughlin said. "That would be the one comment that I would make. And as an offense we did not have any rhythm or any continuity. It seemed like there would be two or three pretty good plays and then a setback play, a play that would knock us out of rhythm or would not allow us to go ahead and make the first down or continue the drive." ...

Coughlin didn’t have a problem with the level of intensity he witnessed, and reminded everyone not to panic.

"It is interesting that we are in this frame of mind that we are in," Coughlin said. "We do have 11 wins. So let’s not overreact."

"The real issue to me, is when the players feel they're unsafe, they shouldn't be there," Goodell said. "So get out, don't be there. If you feel the need to have a firearm to be someplace, you're in the wrong place."

Gee, you really think so?

  • The New York Daily News is running a position-by-position poll to find 'The Greatest Giants.' Basically, the Daily News is building an All-Time Team, just like we did here at BBV in the off-season. It will be interesting to see how the teams compare.
