The Giants dissection of the up-to-then perfect Patriots is a wonder to behold. They had the Pats superstar offense so completely figured out that by day's end, they were frustrated, confused and utterly beaten.

The basis for the gameplan the Giants used in that contest was a 125 page scouting report that covered all their strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, etc.

One of the men who helped put that report together is now our General Manager.

Giants beat the Pats with a pass rush, Gettleman talked about needing the "big guys" to win... this is what he meant on the defensive side of the ball.

One of the best QB's of all time was made to look average with a pass rush.

Brady just about always folds when his opponent can get consistent pressure.

It oughtta be well known by now that that's how to beat him, but a fair number of teams are too buffaloed by his reputation to try it. Teams like the Giants and Ravens show why you shouldn't be.

So does Manning and Brees.

No QB can do much facing consistent pressure. You rush your reads, lose composure in the pocket and are often forced to abandon mechanics and footwork.

Gettleman was part of this one too.

Gettleman was the head honcho of that report, I think
