As well all know the Giants go to Indy this week to face the colts.Manning Bowl aside this is a big game for the simple reason it will give our defense a true test unlike this past week.I basically just want to point out some of the top reasons the outcome of this game can be different than the one played 4 years ago.
Number 1 Eli has matured since the last time these teams played.He has become the unquestioned leader of this offense and team.He is still no Peyton Manning but he is still damn good and is capable of competeing with the best.
2.The Colts cannot defend the run! What better way to get your running game going than to play a team that gave up well over 200 yards the previous week.On top of that Bob Sanders is out so it just makes it that much better.
3.We have a much better secondary than people think.There are three starting safeties on this team and with Ross most likely back this week we have three starting corners.
4.We have the playmakers if it turns to a shootout.Nicks,Smith Manningham,Bradshaw are all guys who can make plays throughout the game to keep up.
While I do know it is not a for sure win this week im pretty confident that this team and start off 2-0.The only thing that really worries me is Peyton does not start seasons 0-2 lol.
