Newsday reproter blog spells it out pretty well that the Gmen are in trouble!

It comes down to this: Beat the Panthers on Sunday at Giants Stadium and things will look a whole lot better than they do right now. Beat the Panthers, and the Giants get the No. 1 overall seed and a coveted bye week before the divisional playoffs.

Lose to Carolina, and things look a whole lot worse. Lose to Minnesota and see the No. 2 seed disappear, and the Giants would be looking at having to duplicate last year's remarkable feat, the only difference being that they'd at least have a home game.

The Giants couldn't have picked a worse time to be playing their worst football of the season. They have one offensive touchdown in the last two games. Eli Manning was sacked eight times by the Cowboys. The Giants were limited to 72 rushing yards.

No Jacobs. No Plaxico Burress. A banged-up offensive line. Problems, people. Problems.

No announcement yet. But I don't think it will matter. We will get back to where we were at the begining of the season. If Jacobs plays he won't get 60 yards.

That would be great... I'm just concerned since Kemo seems to be hurt worse than I had hoped. That won't help our run stopping...

Jacobs in or out, they still have problems, both their #1 and #2 recievers are out and we just have to really concentrate on their running game... With Plaxico and Tyree their only major threat is Smith who is only really at #3 reciever... I think we will be just fine, as long as we can keep pace with them on both sides of the ball and hopefully our running game is clicking early... i dont see us letting up any because of the high importance of this game...

I don't think he plays and even if he does, how effective will he be with a PCL knee injury still healing? nc is right - we will limit his productivity regardless.

This game can't get here soon enough. The Giants are banged up but we still have to remember they are still the defending Super Bowl champs that are coming off tough disappointing games. I am wondering will the wind play a great factor in this game. As long as we come in and pound the ball, make adjustments when needed, we will be fine. Go Panthers!

I'm usually not too worried about our run defense. We give up yards but usually not TD's, for a few exceptions (Turner). I was more worried about the Denver game and that pass offense but not against the Giants. Without Plax the Giants are close to a 1D team, focus on the run and make Eli beat you, most times he won't, most times most QB's won't without a run game. However, Ward is still a good back, and if Jacobs plays they are dangerous, but he's not 100%.

I cant believe I'm saying this but I think the Gmen are gonna have a hard time controlling our high powered offense. We can put up 30+ at will. They have not scored more then 20 after losing Plex.
