The Giants made what would be a key midseason addition when they acquired linebacker Jon Beason in the middle of their winless start to this season.
Since then, the Giants have turned their year around and find themselves on a four-game win streak with a pivotal NFC East matchup this week against the Dallas Cowboys. In six games with the Giants (five starts), Beason has 36 tackles as well as an interception in last week's win over the Green Bay Packers.
"When I came in, I said wow, there's so many players, there's so much talent everywhere," Beason said yesterday on a conference call with the media. "Why are we 0-6 and you sit back and kind of evaluate and you kind of figure out, let's start over because the pieces are there. That's what guys have done and you look at it from the standpoint that this team was 9-7 when they won a Super Bowl. They've made those late runs. The usual suspects, the same leaders that are on this defense, special teams, the offense, the same coaches that made those types of runs, you're never out of it until you're out of it. That's just the way it goes in the NFL."
