With two consecutive wins, the Giants now have a boatload of confidence. But, with that confidence comes the possibility of a letdown. For the Giants to go far this year and make their fans believers, they have to avoid letdown games against the likes of teams like the Cardinals.
In an NFC East race that has three teams tied at 2-1, there is absolutely no room for complacency.
For Brandon Jacobs it’s all about confidence. Jacobs reiterated earlier this week that the Giants will be ready come Sunday.
“We have confidence in knowing that we can go in and beat anybody,” said Jacobs. “Arizona’s a good football team and we’re a good football team as well. They get paid to do what they do, we get paid to do what we do. We just have to keep our confidence high and keep playing football week in and week out.”
Although the Giants are favored (1 ½), the Cardinals are no pushovers. While the Cardinals are 1-2, they do now have a competent quarterback in Kevin Kolb. And, remember they still have one of the league’s best all-around playmakers in Larry Fitzgerald. To travel to the west coast on the back end of back-to-back road games is no gimme.
Tom Coughlin is trying to remind the club to remain on track and always keep the next opponent the number one focus.
“We just talked about trying to use the last game in a positive light and let it springboard us toward the future, not let it be reflective,” Coughlin said. “Last Sunday was over, as far as I was concerned, Monday. We’re moving on. We have to move on. I think our team realizes that and hopefully we can use it as a real plus to help us go forward.”
