Five Questions with Mets VP of Media Relations Jay Horwitz

Yes, you read that correctly. Mets VP of Media Relations Jay Horwitz has been a New York Giants season ticket holder since 1963, which means he's seen a lot of the good and a lot of the bad over the years. We had the chance to ask Jay a few questions as we head into the big showdown with the Jets on Saturday:

Big Blue View: How long have you been a Giants fan, and what are your top two or three memories of them?

Jay Horwitz: I have been a Giants fans since 1956. I have had season tickets since 1963. Phil Simms' 22-25 against Denver in the Super Bowl; the Patriots' Super Bowl game; and YA Tittle throwing seven TD passes against the Redskins, I believe in the early 1960's.

BBV: How do you think the last two games of the season will play out?

JH: I think the Giants will rise up and beat both the Jets and the Cowboys, and get into the playoffs. Look for a big game for Eli.

BBV: Being an employee of the Mets for so many years, do you remember anything specifically about when the Jets played at Shea?

JH: I wasn't much of a Jets fans so I didn't pay much attention. I only remember they opened on the road a lot so they wouldn't conflict with us.

BBV: Do you think Eli Manning should receive MVP consideration this year and why or why not?

JH: Eli should certainly be considered for MVP Really, no one has been better in the fourth quarter. He has proven he is one of the Elite QB's in the league.

: Prediction for the game this Saturday?

JH: Giants 31, Jets 24

I like that prediction. How about you guys?
