Happens all the time don't forget the defending superbowl champs lost to the Seahawks and got swept by the Redskins last year and barely beat some bottom feeders. Too early.
But with the Giants you had a Pro Bowl QB who you could count on each week. I support Alex, but not sure you can consistently count on him each week. Maybe he still has alot to get comfortable with his deep throws, who knows.
Out of the 3 losses we had last year:
Dallas - We went on the road the following week and barely beat the Bengals 13-8
@ Baltimore - Went home the next week and dominated the Rams 26-0
@ Arizona - Went home the next week and dominated the Steelers 20-3
We've never encountered a loss on the road and going out again on the road the very next week. We always had the home crowd to lift the team up the next week. So the Niners will definitely be tested against the Jets.
