Pigmy or Child

Are we the tallest pigmy in the land of giants or are we a rapidly maturing child?

I didn't get the sense that we could answer that question based on last night's performance. Considering that the opponent was the quadriplegic knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it would be tough to project out against an opponent who might have a healthy offensive line, a quarterback who has a clue, and a secondary who is better organized.

We have a really tough next 4 games against real NFL teams. I hope the next 10 days we can heal and figure out what we are.

3 of our 4 losses were by a total of 6 points.

We walk among the Giants with our head held high.

With makes us that much more scary since we were playing nowhere near what we're capable of.

Next three at home starting with the division lead is best case scenario. They have climbed in front of the division after a aweful start, let's hope we only have better things to come.

Re: Pigmy or Child

But we lost to Atlanta, Cleveland and Detroit. I could have stopped at mentioning the Clowns, but Cleveland lost to Jax (come ON) and Detroit has been the beneficiary of opponents like the Saints inflicting self immolation (and they even lost badly to the Panties!?)

Saying that we barely lost to horrible teams does not support the thesis that we are on the verge of greatness.

But saying that we destroyed a very good Packers team does!

While playing absolute dog-**** football.

It's like the team was literally sleep-walking through the first 6 games.

Sean Payton is owning this turnaround.

Pigmy today, Giants tomorrow.

No teams are great this year.
Dallas? Hardly.
Philly? Zona? Seattle? Nope.

All have warts just as ugly as ours.
