The Giants' December slump

Yeah, you read it right.

While the media is focused on reminding the free world that Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have an abysmal record in December - you know, the month that sees them slide - nobody else gets that treatment.

So what? It's well deserved? Maybe. Or Maybe not.

We all have read stories about How the Cowboys can avoid their December demons, or how December beckons: Cowboys and Romo must rise above history, yet that is not tell the only story to tell.

In a stunning comparison, the New York Giants - yes, the ones the Cowboys play this week in the Meadowlands, are quite similar.

  Cowboys Giants
2006 2-3 2-3
2007 2-2 * 3-2
2008 1-3 1-3

The asterisk for 2007 is because the Cowboys only had 4 games because they played (and defeated) the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, November 29. But who's nit-picking.

This year's Cowboys team is more of just that - a team. Everybody is playing for everyone else. Three better than serviceable running backs all happy when the other excels. A stable of receivers who know that their quarterback will spread the ball around enough so that, while no individual statistics are shining, the sum of the whole can show a powerful game. A defense infused with new blood that has been improving since week 2.

No, this is not your Dallas Cowboys of the recent past. 

Here's hoping the results of December, and hopefully January and February, play out as such.
