The New York Giants and the NFC East in general are both having pretty down years, but you don't want to see a team from this division in the playoffs.
There are seven Giants in particular that no person/fan wants to see opposite them come game day.
Let's start off with the New York Giants MVP for the season.
It doesn't matter whether the general public recognizes this or not, but true Giants fans have taken notice of what Eli Manning has done for them this season.
No running game? No Problem.
Patchwork offensive line? No problem.
Awful, I mean awful offensive coordinator? No problem.
When another team has Eli under center, who's been there and done that, you should be very, very scared if you're on the opposing side.
Let's be real, who the hell wants any piece of this guy in the playoffs?
76 receptions,1,358 yards and eight touchdowns is a ridiculous year for any player, much less an undrafted free agent.
How he isn't in the Pro Bowl this year is a travesty, but it doesn't matter.
To see the New York Giants single-season receiving yard holder in the playoffs with the year he's having would be good enough for any Giants fan.
Even though Hakeem Nicks has been banged up at parts during this season, he still made it out to 14 games this season.
He's a very physical receiver, and you're going to need a very physical cornerback to keep up with him.
Darrelle Revis showed he could definitely do that, but the Giants probably won't play the New York Jets in the playoffs.
I'm not sure there's another corner in the game who can consistently hang with Nicks for an entire game, especially with Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham lined up at the same time.
Aw man, would you want a piece of this guy in the snow?
I think not.
Jacobs has stepped his game up lately, as has Ahmad Bradshaw, but Jacobs is just a highlight tackle waiting to happen.
He's one of the few "true" power backs left in the league.
When Jacobs gets a little space and actually lowers his shoulders (see above), you're in for a world of pain.
I hate to say this, because I really don't like Osi Umenyiora, but anyone who watched the New York Giants during the 2007 run knows this guy can show up during the big moments.
Umenyiora and another certain defensive end showed off that Giants pass rush during their 2007 campaign, which helped the G-Men make it to the promised land.
He's apparently hopefully to play Sunday, coming off his ankle injury (which I think he could've come back from earlier if he really wanted to but whatever,) and play some football.
Justin Tuck, just like Osi Umenyiora, was a big part of the New York Giants winning the Super Bowl in the 2007-2008 season.
Tuck is one of the captains for the G-Men, and if you look at his career stats you can see why.
He's been another Giant who's been banged up this season, but he's shown up to play whenever he can.
Another certain defensive end has helped anchor this squad throughout this year, but no quarterback wants to see Tuck coming after him during any point of a football game (not even Aaron Rodgers.)
Jason Pierre-Paul, is a beast this year.
He wasn't even on the fan voting ballot for the Pro Bowl this year, and he made it anyway.
That's just how JPP rolls. And when he's not making Pro Bowls he's getting 15.5 sacks, 81 tackles and two forced fumbles.
JPP is ready to bust out and emerge on the playoff scene given the opportunity.
