Good morning fellow Giants fans. It's hard not to feel a little Deja vu--as the G-men are stockpiling wins with a daunting schedule ahead. The team is 3-1 heading into Sunday's home game against Seattle, and I haven't looked, but I'm guessing the Giants are favored by more than seven points. That doesn't mean this game will be easy, because it won't be. But no matter what happens on the field, the Giants are expected to win and to reach 4-1. The one difference in this year's team, however, is that they beat the Eagles, giving them confidence that they can beat contenders. In addition, Eli Manning is playing very much like his big brother--being efficient and finding ways to win. So yeah, it's a familiar feeling, but then again it's not. Here is what is happening around Giants' cyberspace...

Seahawks | Seahawks can use recent history against New York Giants as measuring stick | Seattle Times Newspaper
But this is Seahawks history we're talking about, and the Giants have been a measuring stick for better and for worse over the past six seasons. Seattle beat New York twice in the span of 10 months, a pair of regular-season victories sandwiched around the Super Bowl appearance, establishing the high-water mark of the franchise's greatest success. The Giants helped illuminate the floor, as well, Seattle suffering two lopsided losses over the past three years to show how far this franchise had fallen.
I didn't want to remember those two games we lost against Seattle--the Feely game and the one in which we fell way behind and made a feeble attempt to come back. But at least that is not immediate recent history.
