The Giants' 0-2 start has come with some interesting sidebars. They have actually played seven quarters of effective football and could have won both games. But fate would not have it. They let their guard down against two opponents that had the capacity to beat them, and so it goes.

Sunday was the latest test of wills for Giant fans as the Blue snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory once again. It's a disturbing trend that everyone hopes will reverse itself and quickly. Last week in Dallas, they had the Cowboys beat, and this week, they had the Falcons beat. What happened? Perhaps it can be summed up by the coach of the Atlanta Falcons, Dan Quinn:

The Giants have always been known for their conservative, all-business approach in running the day-to-day operations. They have essentially been the model NFL franchise. Even through all the off-field hiccups in the past, e.g. Plaxico Burress, the Giants' brass has taken the high road more often than not.

They're still talking about the Giants' curious choice to throw on third and goal on Sunday night in Dallas. The conventional thinking was they should have run the ball and either scored and iced the game or not scored, which would have taken an extra 40 seconds off the clock before kicking a FG.

Now this is a case of who said what, and why 13-year veteran QB Eli Manning a) didn't know how many time outs the Cowboys had left and b) why he decided to throw the ball out of bounds, stopping the clock.
