  • I have to disagree. It is not the Giants job to keep the Patriots from a perfect season. It is the Giants job to do whatever it takes to win a superbowl. Which means being as healthy as possible going into the playoffs. Which means not playing Buress, Jacobs, or anyone else who is nursing an injury. Which also means not playing anyone whose health is critical to the playoffs.

    If I were Tom Coughlin, I would play Manning to practice some of the throws that he has been struggling with, but take him out if the defense gets to him. If the patriots defense wasn't playing too tough, I would give Bradshaw some reps at running back, but I wouldn't risk injuring him, given that Ward is out and Jacobs is still gimpy.

    And I wouldn't play most of my defensive starters either.

    It is the patriots business whether they want to risk post-season chance to go for an in-season record, but it is not the Giants responsibility, to risk theirs if the Patriots choose to do so.
