With just six weeks left in the NFL season, the postseason picture is starting to shore up.
As an avid supporter of the Tennessee Titans, I am ecstatic that they are the lone undefeated team in the NFL, with a record of 10-0, and I am also fully convinced they are the best team in the AFC.
Having said that, I must admit, I do not think they are the best team in the league. After watching many games this past weekend, my opinion is that the New York Giants are far and away the best team in the NFL.
After soundly defeating what is arguably the best defense in the league, the Baltimore Ravens, the Giants proved unequivocally that they are capable of achieving victory over any NFL opponent. After scorching the Ravens for 207 yards on the ground, it's obvious that the Giants can beat you in many ways.
Whether it's crushing the opponents through brute strength by pounding the rock with 6'4", 265 lb Brandon Jacobs, slashing you with Ahmad Bradshaw, or having Eli light up the sky to the likes of Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer, they will undoubtedly find a way to defeat any that oppose them.
The pragmatic approach they take to winning games is rivaled only by Tennessee Titans in their current quest of remaining unbeaten. Eli Manning is exuding a confidence that can only be likened to great quarterbacks such as Tom Brady, Peyton Manning (pre-2008), Dan Marino, and John Elway.
Is this the second installment of the newest NFL dynasty? Will the New York football Giants write a tale of supremacy, like that most recently of the New England Patriots and previously of the Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Madden's Raiders, and Lombardi's Packers?
Is Eli reaching the culmination of an evolution that will have him surpassing brother Peyton? I do not know. Those are chapters that are yet to be written; but if the playoffs of 2007 and the season of 2008 are indicative of the Giants' future, someone needs to inform the rest of the NFC to strap themselves in for a long and bumpy ride.
