The New York Giants have a lot of confidence right now. That's totally understandable. But making guarantees about beating the defending-champion Packers, in Lambeau, already? That seems silly.

But it's not stopping Jason Pierre-Paul, who guaranteed a Giants win over the Packers on Sunday.

"We’re going to win," Pierre-Paul said, per Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. "One hundred percent we’re going to win ... because we’re the best."

Wild-Card Weekend Recap

The Giants are quite good. They might be the best team in the playoffs and it's great that JPP is confident. (Interestingly, the only quotes to make it onto the Giants official site are the follow-ups about how sure JPP is.) He should be, given the way the Giants dismantled Atlanta's offense on Sunday afternoon.

But the vibe we get from him is that the Packers aren't as pumped up about a rematch against the Giants. And that's simply not the case. There are plenty of guys on this roster who remember what happened back the last time the Giants won the Super Bowl.

"The team that kept us from our potential Super Bowl in 08 is back on OUR turf now," Jennings tweeted on Sunday. "Trust me,we haven't forgotten. Here. We ... GoPackGo! #BeGreat"

What's interesting to us is the heavy amount of comparisons to the 2007 season. Obviously, there are some similarities. But there are a lot of differences as well. For one, the Packers are better. (And maybe the Giants are better too.)

“We might be a better team than we were in ’07, but I think Green Bay is a better than they were in ’07, too," Tuck said per our Giants Rapid Reporter Alex Raskin.

The more logical comparison, then, is to the last time these teams played. Which, uh, was this year. That game was played in New York, but the Packers still managed to win 38-35.

Which is why, regardless of how confident Pierre-Paul is, he might want to consider scaling back any public declarations about the outcome of the game until victory is actually in hand.

Pierre-Paul guarantees Giants win over Packers

Did anyone listen to the audio. He didn't guarantee a win. He wants to win, just like every other member from BOTH teams. Pack fans, don't be so obnoxious. If your team needs this as a way to motivate them, then your team isn't the team anyone thought they were. The Giants D-line is clearly one of the best in football. They take pride in their play, just like Aaron Rodgers takes pride in his play and being of the best in football, just like his receivers take pride at being some of the best in football.

Don't be so obnoxious!!!!!

Yup...THE CHIEFS!! Plus, the Chiefs played in a horrible division unlike the Redskins.  Gmen are a different team after that Redskins loss and they're proving to idiots like you that they are better than the records of the other playoff teams.

This is hilarious! "if any team will beat the Packers at Lambeau it's the Giants, they're a nightmare matchup" Hey moron Giant fan, did you watch the first game they played IN NEW YORK? Wow, you hammered the Falcons at home, you guys are on fire! Ya, the Packers already pounded them this year as well, in Atlanta.You're the hottest team in the playoffs? Why? Because you beat Dallas and the Jets to eek in, both at home, looool...As for the Bear fan talking shit about Rodgers, there's no comeback for you, you're a Bear fan, that's funny enough...

Mark my words, if any team is going to beat GB in the playoffs, it'll be NYG.
If GB beats the Giants, they're in the superbowl, easy.
NYG arethe worstmatchup for GB, worse than SF, NO, BAL, all of 'em.
Just watch

It will be easier to win in GB against a team who has been sitting for a few weeks than it will be to travel to SF or NO... If the Jersey Giants get by Green Bay (which is highly unlikely) they will get pummeled in the NFC championship.

I would also like to make a prediction.  The Giants suck and will lose by at least 10 points.  Here is a team who played the Cowboys and Falcons to get where they are.  Those two teams are total jokes.  Now they need to play a good team....  Maybe the best team.  It will be ugly.  I can't wait to hear their excuses.  This is nothing more than NFL hype.  Worthless hype.

Aaron Rodgers allow me to introduce you to the ground!  Lets go Big Blue.  Give it your best.  We have nothing to lose.  PAckers have everything to lose.  Makes us very dangerous.  All you Pack fans that are so confident ,aybe you should sit and chat w/ all the PAt fans that had the same mind frame you guys do.  Hey Pats how'd that work for you?
