Deja Vu All Over Again

I keep hearing about 2007 when talking about this team.  It's a long way from Super Bowl no.4 but I decided to recount the similarities.

2007: Rookie Steve Smith spent most of the year injured with a fractured scapula but came back to make big catches in the playoffs.

2010: Second-year player William Beatty got injured early with a broken bone in his foot.  He hasn't been put on IR because the teams hopes he can come back later in the season.

2007: Plaxico Burress, a key piece of the offense, had to deal with a nagging ankle injury all season long.

2010: Shaun O'Hara, a key piece of the offense, has been plagued with a chronic ankle injury.

2007, Tiki Barber announced that Coughlin was in trouble of losing his job and that Coughlin's message wasn't reaching his players.

2007: A new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo was hired.

2010:  A new defensive coordinator in Perry Fewell was hired. 

2007: The team was 2-2 after its first four games.  The defense had a dominating performance in Week 4, giving up only three points and recording 12 sacks.

2007: The Giants won that Week 4 game and went on a six-game winning streak.

2010: The Giants won that Week 4 game and won consecutive games for the first time since Week 4 and Week 5 of 2009.

2007: Jerry Reese signed veteran LB Kawika Mitchell in the off-season to fill the SAM spot.

2010: Jerry Reese signed veteran LB Keith Bulluck in the off-season.  Thought to fill the MLB spot, Bulluck plays at the SAM spot... or is Fewell calling it the WILL?

2007: The Cowboys entered the season as prohibitive favorite to win the division and reach the Super Bowl after suffering a bad playoff loss in the previous season.
