NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the New York Giants by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
NEW YORK GIANTS (7)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 7) - If Bradshaw keeps running like this, watch out!
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 5) - The pass rush has been held in check, yet the offense is more explosive than ever.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 8)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 6) - Finally get the running game going with Ahmad Bradshaw.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 10) - Tom Coughlin says Ahmad Bradshaw is as tough a player as he's ever been around. And that covers more than half a century. A career game for the diminutive running back.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 9) - The Giants have recovered a league-leading three fumbles on special teams.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 8) - One of these days, the Giants' pass rushers will answer the wake-up call. Considering New York's tortuous schedule, it better happen sooner, not later.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 7) - That end zone salsa dance by Victor Cruz is getting a workout.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 6) - Eli Manning can win with any receivers the club puts on the field.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 7) - The Giants started slow against the Browns, but then caught fire. To catch fire for the season, they need to get healthy in the secondary.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 8) - After a rough start, the Giants avoided a "trap game" loss to Cleveland thanks to impressive performances by Ahmad Bradshaw, Victor Cruz and Peyton Manning.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 10) - We will find out everything we need to know about the Giants on Sunday when they visit San Francisco in an NFC championship game rematch.
