The New York Giants have a philosophy of not negotiating contracts during the season. Why this unwritten rule remains in place is anyone’s guess.

Do the Giants have more talent than the Bucs and the Carolina Panthers, their next two opponents? Absolutely. And could Big Blue lose to these teams if they play sloppy, uninspired football? Absolutely.
