Yeah, the only way the Giants could move the ball was with yellow flags.

The running game was fantastic today. And the return game even better.

Did someone from the NFL call Simms directly and tell him to flip-flop on the fumble?

The fix was in.

Most impressive win in years (i.e. since the divisional round game against the Ravens).

No kidding.  I was shocked that we overcame the 1-2-3 punch combo of bad officiating in the first half.

Though I still don't feel this is a great team, I feel better about this team, at week 9, than I did either of the previous 2 super bowl contenders at week 9.  Probably a bad sign.

the short version:  it's nice to finally dominate a decent opponent.

Agreed, great win.  This team is completely different than the one that lost every other game earlier in the season.  They have it going in the right direction.  Can't wait for the Ravens.

The defense was dominant today.  They've been improving over the last few weeks and I think it's helping to have a consistent lineup on the field, Troy or no.

If nothing else, it appears the offensive line is definitely on its way. And we still have Gilbert and Decastro on the bench.

I don't know what's been more impressive, the OL play (with those two high draft picks on the bench) or the resurgent defense.

You know, it's not that I mind a trick play. But a fake field goal in that situation? Hell, you don't even have to back up a safety because we're so close. If you're going to go for it, just line up and run a damn play. No need to get "cute" at that point in the game.

I was fine with going for it, but didn't care for the way they chose to do it.

We came out of it in fine fashion, but we surely blew some great opportunities to put that thing away earlier than we did.

Redman and Dwyer...could be a lethal combo.

Wasn't Adams playing today?

Defense looks weak at the start of games, but they seem to pick up steam as the game goes on. Better to finish strong.

I think he means Gilbert and Decastro.  Yes, they were both rocking the Duce Staley look.
