Denver? Giants? The Same?

The 6-4 records aren't the only similarities between the Giants and Broncos. They got there in almost the same way, the Broncos winning their first six and dropping their last four and the Giants winning their first five and dropping four before squeaking past the Falcons this past weekend.

Similar to the Giants during their losing streak, the Broncos also look like they couldn't beat a good high school team right now. But as the Giants taught us last week, beware. Things can turn on a dime in this league, and this week's chumps may turn into next week's Supermen. Even if you have Kyle Orton as your quarterback.

Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Osi Umenyiora know that. And they offer that lesson in this video presentation.

One personnel note: The Giants added DB Anthony Scirroto to their practice squad after Jacksonville signed DB Michael Coe off that unit. The 6-0, 202-pound Scirroto was signed as an undrafted rookie May 1 by the Panthers and was waived July 27, and had worked out for the Giants earlier this month.



  1. As a Penn State fan, I welcome the signing of Scirrotto (correct spelling). If he can translate what he did in college to the NFL, we got ourselves a steal. But since he wasn't drafted and was already dropped by Carolina, that may be wishful thinking on my part.

  2. I bet MickeyNY was hoping that Maurice Evans would stick as well. I bet that both these Penn St players will find their way onto the field for an NFL team someday.

  3. I definitley was. Evans definitely made his case to stick with the Giants in the summer, but they couldn't find room for him.
