There are still legions of Giant fans who worry which Giant team they will get from week to week. If they get the most recent version, they'll be thrilled.
That team can't be beaten. By anyone.
But if they get the team that got flattened by the Eagles and Redskins in November, it will sting.
Chances are, they won't. The Giants have learned many things about themselves the past seven weeks and they are not leaving anything to chance.
The team had been stale until they lost some very winnable games. Then they got healthy. And then they got physical.
The Eagles and Redskins both play physical brands of football. They slapped the Giants back to into reality. The Giants have been kicking everyone's you-know-what since. They would never have been able to stand up to San Francisco last week without taking the path they had taken.
This week, the Giants will stress physicality. They can't stop now. It is all hands on deck.
Several players will be guarded (Ahmad Bradshaw, Osi Umenyiora and Hakeem Nicks) this week but others will be chomping at the bit to hit somebody. Hard.
There's too much at stake for the team to take their foot off the gas pedal at this point. They have talked about finishing all year and it's time to do just that.
When asked what he told his team last week, Tom Coughlin said simply:
"Keep your eye on the prize," he said. "Keep your eye on the prize. Steely-eyed focus"
