dky(se)1. This particular Giants team has no heart. If you watched their pitiful effort on Sunday you know why I say that.

2. It wasn’t just the Giants that played as if their balls were missing, the Lions, Bills, Chargers, and Buccaneers also were nutless.

3. When you head coach is saying that your season has “gone off the rails” you’re probably in for a slew of changes. The Lions have tons of talent and no direction or execution.

4. Brian Urlacher just needs to shut up.

5. Adrian Peterson now only needs 188 rushing yards over his last two games (@ Texans, Packers) to become the 7th man to reach the 2,000 yard plateau after his 24 carry, 212 yard destruction of the Rams.

6. Calvin Johnson needs only 182 receiving yards to break Jerry Rice’s single season receiving yardage record of 1,848 set in 1995.

7. I wouldn’t get too excited about the Falcons either. They did destroy the Giants, but that’s really nothing to write home about. The Falcons are a good team, they will most likely end up with a #1 seed in the NFC and a bye, but they will not beat the 49ers, in my opinion.

8. As I type this the spread of the Giants @ Ravens game is currently Giants -1. I realize the Ravens played poorly against the Broncos on Sunday, but they are home against a wildly inconsistent Giants team that got destroyed in every facet of the game and the spread favors the Giants? Did I miss something?

On to the rankings!
