Yes, indeed it is. I am 100% confident that the New York Giants are going to be mentally prepared, and they are going to show up tomorrow ready to play some mother lovin' football. The crowd is going to be like nothing East Rutherford has ever experienced before. MetLife will shake at the foundation when they announce the 2011 starters, especially when Victor Cruz comes out salsa dancing. Soon after warmups, the teams will line up for kickoff creating an atmosphere that "Matty Ice" has never even dreamt about playing in. Hell's Bells will be ringing, All-In towels will be waving, and "Let's Go Giants" chants will be heard echoing from New Jersey all the way to the Empire State Building; which of course will be lit up in Giants Blue, the REAL color of New York. Tom Coughlin's cheeks will be rosy red and this game will be underway in The Meadowlands.
I saw someone talk about the Giants winning the toss and electing to kick first. The ghost of Bill Parcells will be smiling when that happens, because you know what? If we want to win this game we need to SET THE TONE right off the bat. I think the Giants players will do jus that. I fully expect the MetLife crowd to be up to the challenge as well.
The kick will be sent deep and the sound of Hell's Bell's will drown out in the mayhem that ensues when Big Blue stops the Falcons returner cold on the 15 yard line. It will not stop there. Soon afterwards the deafening roar of DE-FENSE will confuse the Falcons offense. Justin Tuck will be standing upright signalling to the crowd to get louder. Jason Pierre-Paul will be opposite Tuck doing the exact same motion. Ahmad Bradhsaw will be standing on the bench waving his All-In towell. Michael Boley will yell out some last second adjustments, we line up, and Matt Ryan will snap the ball. He will be greeted immediately with a high low combination of JPP and Tuck and he will get a personal face to face meeting with the MetLife turf. At that point there will so much mayhem going on that not even Allstate could figure it out.
THIS IS HOW WE NEED TO START THE GAME. I WANT PUNISHMENT DELIVERED FROM THE SOUND OF THE OPENIG WHISTLE. I WANT THE GIANTS DEFENSE TO BE JUST THAT.... THE GOD DAMN GIANTS DEFENSE. SHOW THE FALCONS WHAT IT MEANS TO PLAY PHYSICAL FOOTBALL. INFLICT PAIN UPON ANYONE WHO DARES TOUCH THE BALL ON THAT FALCON OFFENSE. CONTROLLED CHAOS. THAT IS HOW WE WIN.
