Niners/Giants game could go either way. I think the Niners are 3.5 favs at home. Smith has been more of a game manager when needed. He has comeback victories against the Eagles, Lions and Bengals. Still I think Giants are a really good team and it will be a good test for the Niners. Playoff type atmosphere?
My giants are 6-2 and rolling, the Eagles are 3 games back, and the Cowboys are almost assured a stupid loss here and there, plus we'll at least split with them. LIfe is good. If we can beat SF (and i think we can, our QB advantage is HUGE) then we are in pretty good shape.
BTW, i remember being told Vick can do anything Eli can do wihtout a problem. Well, last minute drives aren't that easy. Some can and some can't.
Expect a rude awakening if you think Smith is the weak point of the niners roster..(btw this is coming from a guy who ranked Eli the 3rd best QB in the league..)
