If you’re not gonna win it all, then making the playoffs is a waste anyway. Sure, the Giants had opportunities to be in the dance but repeating is a rarity and, for one reason or another, that wasn’t gonna be in the cards this year. So I consider 2012 a reward for Super Bowl XLVI. Extended vacation time. An extra couple weeks on the clock for no reason is a drag.

Enjoy it, G-Men. You earned it. See you again at the parade soon.
