Good morning, Giants fans, and, no, you’re not dreaming!   The G-Men actually won a season-opener!   The Giants are 1 and 0!   They’re over .500!   Big Blue is back, baby!   We’re winning the Super Bowl!

Hey, it’s your Sports pal Davey Mac here and I’ve gotta tell you…I’ve been a New York Football Giants fan for my entire life and this is the most hopeful that I’ve been about the future of the franchise in ten years.

A decade ago, we had coach Tom Coughlin and QB Eli Manning leading the way.   Yesterday, it was all about new head coach Brian Daboll and running back Saquon Barkley willing the Giants to victory.

Both men were absolutely huge in the Giants’ dramatic, come-from-behind, surprising win over the Tennessee Titans.   The Titans have won the AFC South the past two seasons and many football pundits have predicted them to take a third, straight, division title.

And yet, with the game in their building, the Titans could not put the Giants away.   Instead, Barkley’s brilliant performance and Daboll’s gutsy decision-making resulted in the best Giants’ victory in years.

It’s been a disaster with the G-Men lately.   Ben McAdoo, Pat Shurmur, and Joe Judge all turned out to be coaching disasters.   Daboll, it seems, has the potential to be a coach of substance and quality.

Meanwhile, Saquon looked like one of the best backs in the NFL yesterday.   Barkley was explosive, powerful, fast, and tough.   Barring any serious injury this year…Barkley may have a HUGE season.

Look, I’m trying not to get too excited…but cut me a break…it’s been years of futility at this point!   Let’s go Giants!   It’s time to seize your future!   And that’s my two cents!

    Let’s start with football…where because the rest of Week 1 of the NFL Season happened yesterday and Giants fans are waking up happy for a change as the Giants upset the Titans in dramatic fashion…final score…21 to 20.   The Giants trailed the Titans thirteen to nothing…and then 20 to 13 late…when they came back on the strength of Saquon Barkley and good defense.   The Giants ended up getting a touchdown with around a minute left when new head coach Brian Daboll went for two and got it when Saquon ran it in for the go-ahead two-point conversion.   Barkley rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown.   He averaged just over nine yards a carry and was awesome overall.   Sterling Shepard had a 65-yard touchdown reception as well.   Daniel Jones did have two turnovers (a fumble and an interception)…but was good enough.   The Giants win their first season-opener since 2016.   Unbelievable!
