I believe that when we see the Giants trounce an outstanding team such as the Packers but lose badly to a Bengals team it reflects a phenomenon common throughout all sports. While skill levels between two competing teams is important, also very important is how they match up against each other in terms of strengths and weaknesses.
Also very important is the degree of intensity. Giant players will say that they want to win all the games they play. But it is only natural that their level of intensity varies and that is often very observable. Coughlin is a great motivator and if he can motivate the Giants to play with the same level of intensity they displayed against the Packers they have a great chance at going to the Super Bowl again. Do you disagree?
Nat, I think you’re over analyzing things. The Giants lost to Cincy due to turnovers and uncoordinated play. They beat the Packers because they were more in tune with one another.
