Game Notes:
"It was a little cold and roomy at Giants Stadium if you know what I mean. You had to be a real Giants fan to be there and if you were, I'm proud of you. We knew the Seahawks would be a tough team to beat so expectations were not high, but still at the end of the first quarter the Giants were down just 3-0. The offense was going nowhere, but the defense was doing a decent job against a really good opponent. There's still a limit on what any defense can do if they're constantly brought back on to the field though and by the end of the half the score was 13-0 in favor of the Seahawks.
The game moved on and I see all these guys trying to make things happen. Victor Cruz took a real big hit in the fourth quarter that took him out of the game. It was a shame that his courageous completion was overruled because he really gave it his all on that play trying to make something happen. I wish the Giants could have put some points up on the board today and they came close, but the level of competition was just too much. The Seahawks are a real powerhouse and look like they could be one of the teams that will be playing here in the Super Bowl in February.
I will have to say I did not see any 'quit' on this Giants team today, and that's why fans come out to these games, no matter what, to support them."

Game Notes:
"The Giants defense held up their end of the bargain. They allowed the Seahawks 23 points when their usual average is 27.5. This was an especially good job considering that the Seahawks had a number of extra opportunities with the Giants offense turning over the ball five times. We will disallow Eli Manning's Hail Mary on the final play of the half because they didn't have to take the field after that. You could call a 13-0 score at the end of the first half a good day considering how the Giants have been playing lately. By the end of the first half, the Giants had only two first downs and their defense was being overworked.
Admittedly the Giants
faced a tough task going up against the Seahawks. They're a top notch team with their pass defense and they are the second best ranked team at keeping points from being scored on them. They proved that by continuing to shut out the Giants in the second half. The Giants almost had a shot, but Eli Manning was intercepted in the endzone for the fifth time in the game in the fourth quarter. They spared Manning any further embarrassment by substituting Curtis Painter in his spot for the final plays. Overall what did you expect anyway with this matchup, and general manager Jerry Reese will have a lot to account for on how he figured things would work out for the offensive line this year."
