As I stated in my game prediction, there was too much on the line for Atlanta when they welcomed the Giants into the George Dome this afternoon.

The Falcons, now 7-0 in their own friendly confines, proved that with a shutout of the defending Super Bowl champions.

On the defensive side of the ball, Big Blue had no way of containing the Falcons multifaceted attack. Atlanta dominated in every possible aspect in this match-up.

As the first ever playoff game in MetLife Stadium draws nearer, comparisons are swirling regarding the 2011 squad?s resemblance to the World Champion 2007 Giants team. For the most part, I too can see the resemblance.

Just like in the summer of ?07, the Giants weren?t expected to make much noise this season. After making quick free agent splashes with top UDFA Mark Herzlich and C David Baas, Big Blue found itself sitting idly by as other teams stole headlines and marquee names.

GM Jerry Reese was under serious fire before a single preseason snap was played. Two of Eli?s top targets, Steve Smith and Kevin Boss, were allowed to quietly walk out the door and in one case into the arms of the franchise?s most hated rival. Ahmad Bradshaw too was almost not retained, but a pay cut taken by Brandon Jacobs led to his return.
