People happy about us facing a depleted Giants team.

I agree, which is why being elated over not playing them when they're full-strength, if you're confident you're better than them anyway, mystifies me.

I mean I guess it's cool if it's an easier win or whatever I just don't see why you wouldn't want a victory with both teams equally matched up.

Let's say we won the super bowl last year with Cam. If pickles had to play a game this season, and we lost, the fans of the opposing team are most certainly not going to be celebrating that victory.

Also, considering pickles wasn't starting due to injury in 2010, I don't think your scenario really applies anyway.

Yes they would...because it would get them closer to a wildcard spot if needed......You know the playoffs, wins get you there not "street cred" "respect" "cool points" none of that poo. Wins>Everything

Literally read nothing past the OP, but it is simple really: wins = respect. At the end of the season, nobody looks at the Super Bowl champs (or any playoff team, for that matter) and says, "well, wait a second, who did they beat throughout the season? A team with 3 or 4 key injuries? Oh, well fug them. They don't get respect simply for that."

We win, we get respect. It doesn't matter against who or under what circumstances. As long as the win is a clean win against any of the other 31 NFL teams, it contributes to the overall record. And overall record is what gains respect.

Injuries happen. We just need the damn W with this schedule we have. Very few people will be running around saying the Giants would've kicked our ass if they had Nicks.

Injuries are apart of the fuging game. We don't even know if our starting RT will play, you think that's FAIR to us vs Giants pass-rush? Get the fug outta here, teams had plenty of gimme wins in 2010 vs us and clinched a playoff spot in the process.

Jeeze how FAIR was it that people played us without Jon Beason, Ron Edwards and Thomas Davis last year? You actually think they gave a flying-fug?

If we win tomorrow night I'm going to feel good, regardless of whether we played a high school team or the Giants. I'd hate to sound Fox-y, but a win is a win.

Jesus Christ I never said the win is meaningless.

Look, let me point this out. We ended up with the 25th hardest strength of schedule in 2008. As a result of being decent, but not playing any goddamnbody we got shitcanned by the Cardinals. At home. After a bye week.

So you can root for our competition to be watered down and non-threatening if you have no testicles, but I'd prefer to play teams that have all their players healthy as often as humanly possibly. Especially if we're playing the Super Bowl champs. The Giants are still a very good team even with the injuries, but if we beat them when they're fully healthy, ESPECIALLY if we REALLY beat them, that tells us a lot about our team. A victory tomorrow still tells us a lot, but if we face the giants again in the post season, we may not have the luxury of facing them when they're hurting.

I think you just wanted some company.

This is going to probably go for 10 pages, great job.
