Sports Illustrated's Peter King has predicted the New York Giants to win the NFC East with a 11 & 4 record.
His reasoning for the prediction...a combination between the "NASCAR" defensive scheme where all four defensive down lineman are pash rushing ends(Tuck, Kiwi, Osi, JPP), Perry Fewell's ability to call a defense similar to the great Steve Spagnuolo and a healthy Chris Canty.
Yes, Chris Canty. He believes that if the New York Giants could get production from Chris Canty for 16 games the NY Giants would make a major impact in the NFC and win the division. He still has the Green Bay Packers going to the Super Bowl; however, Peter is predicting a bounce back year for big blue.
Peter also sited the 2007 New York Giants that were coming off a terible 2006 year at 8 & 8, which was good for 3rd in the division. Currently, this team is flying belowe the radar. If they can get healthy there maybe some magic left.
