"This ballgame is going to be a great test for our team. I think our guys all pretty much know and they're going to embrace that challenge," Harbaugh said at the beginning of the week. "Giants are an outstanding football team, everything we've seen so far is well-documented. This is a physical team, both lines are extremely good, playing very well. We feel we're good on both sides of the line and playing well. Those are going to be two opposing wills that are going to meet in this football game. Two quarterbacks that are playing extremely well, playing at the top of their games. Two outstanding running backs. Physical defensive secondaries and linebackers. Special teams for the Giants is very physical, disciplined, fundamentally sound unit. We feel that way about our guys. There's an excitement that's brewing right now already for this contest. We'll do everything we can to get mentally and physically and emotionally motivated to play in this ballgame. I think it'll be a great game and a great test."Join other diehard Giants Fans!
