Finishing

I’m not going to lie that win felt good.  Not just because it was against the Patriots--okay who am I kidding that’s most of it--but it was also nice to see the team finish another game and finish the first half of the season with a 6-2 record.  Not bad for a team that did nothing in the off season, has been plagued with injuries and has a mediocre second tier quarterback (if you can’t hear it, that last part was sarcastic) but the rest is true, expectations were not high for our Giants at the start of the season.  Yet, here they are at 6-2, but could this winning record spell doom for the remainder of the season?

I had an interesting discussion with my father the day after the game, we were still basking in the glory of the big win, but then he mentioned that the Giants under Coughlin have started almost every season at 6-2 but have then collapsed down the stretch.  I had to find out if that was true.  It’s funny you remember the bad streaks, but you don’t remember them starting off so well.  But it is true, in 5 of the last 7 seasons the Giants have started 6-2.  However, their average record in the second half of the season is far less impressive at 3-5.  Will history repeat itself this year or will the Giants finish strong?  I am remaining cautiously optimistic because of one word—finishing.
