    Sadly, I think you may be right about my NY Giants not making the playoffs this year. I’d like to believe they could repeat, but it seems doubtful. Currently, Unspun has the Giants ranked 7th on the Best NFL Team in 2008 list. The Jets are currently better ranked, but that I definitely don’t accept.
