People happy about us facing a depleted Giants team.

With that said, I'm never one to be happy about another team's player being injured. I'd rather beat a team at full strength than beat a depleted team.
If we're the best, then we're the best, and we don't need other teams hurt to prove it.

this situation probably puts more pressure on us Not To Lose.
i'm not happy about the losses in personnel because this puts even more pressure to win. if we somehow don't pull it off, how would that look.
if we win, we are simply doing what we should have done regardless of who they have on the field. if we lose, though, then we've lost to a team that is much less than 100%, but as long as we put up a fight i wouldn't be too upset because this is essentially the same team with the same personnel we are facing that beat the patriots in the superbowl last year.
still, this puts extra pressure to come out with a win. there's no skirting around that. i think it's easier for us to do that but that eli is a dangerous QB.

Which is why we should bench Cam, Smitty, Lafell, Deangelo, and Stewart. We would win the battle of Internet excuses and if we won, our Internet boasting would be legit.
Just wondering what these people will say if we lose to a "depleted"Giants team...

Now when doing an analysis of how our team performed (if we perform well), it might be important to consider Giants injuries. But as far as being happy or sad about their injuries, I will take the win and won't give a crap about their injuries.

What was the point of this thread again?

Who cares about respect? What we need are wins, like enough to get into the playoffs.
All you can play are the games you are presented with. Win them and then worry about stuff like respect in the offseason.
Thank you! No offense OP, but your premise sucks. This is the NFL, you take wins however you can get them.....

Injuries are a part of the game, and the best teams win regardless. And to be honest, Diehl and Bradshaw aren't that big a deals. Nicks being out hurts, but I wouldn't count out their passing game as long as "Brother Eli" is out there. The only injuries NY can't absorb is at QB and on their DL. That's the heart and soul of both sides of the ball for them. As it is for most teams.
To put it in perspective, I'd still like our chances if Lafell, Bell and DLo couldn't play tonight. I can't compare Nicks to 89... He just ain't that guy.
