The New York Giants may have a worse record (3-6) than the Green Bay Packers (5-4), but don't think they can't impress and beat the Packers, particularly without Aaron Rodgers at quarterback.
"The Giants...don't look at the whole record. Look at the way they're playing now. Look at how they are now. They're playing much better than they have been," said Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Wayne Larrivee on "Wisconsin's Morning News."
"The first six weeks, they were a train wreck. The last three weeks...Philadelphia is a team the Giants handled in Philadephia. I thought last week, their most impressive performance, they beat the Raiders. I understand the Raiders aren't a very good football team, but the Giants were a very good football team (that day)."
Larrivee blames many of the Giants' problems on the turnover bug, and says the team has taken steps that issue.
"They started 0-6. They had 23 turnovers over the course of those six games. Eli Manning was guilty of most of them. They have tightened the ship since. They've changed the offense a bit. They've finally got a running back (who) can move the pile, Andre Brown who came in last week. Manning, the passing game, they've shortened it up...two and three-step drops."
