BACK IN GREEN BAY: "The Giants are a very talented team," *McCarthy said on Tuesday. "They have a number of key veterans to complement a core of young talent. This game is going to be a tough challenge. It's always hard playing in New York. They have great fan support and coming off the loss against New Orleans, they'll be playing with urgency. It will undoubtedly be a very physical football game as it always is when we play them. It starts up front on both sides of the ball. Their offensive and defensive lines are definitely talented and deep. We'll have to concentrate on the little things and make sure that we're detailed and disciplined."* Join other diehard Giants Fans!
