Chris Snee: Giants’ playoffs start now

St. Louis Rams v New York Giants Getty Images

At 6-6, the Giants are currently on the outside looking in at the NFC playoff picture. But with two games against the NFC East-leading Cowboys remaining, the Giants have a simple situation: Sweep the Cowboys and win either one of their other two remaining games, and they win the division.

For Giants guard Chris Snee, that all translates to this: Start playing like it’s the playoffs now.

Yeah, our playoffs start now,” Snee told the New York Daily News. “That’s how we have to look at it. We know what’s at stake. Everyone’s aware of what’s going on and the circumstance we put ourselves in by not being able to win some of these games. But heads are up. We’re not down by any means. We know that we’re still in it.”

Snee is right: The Giants are absolutely still in it. That changes dramatically, however, if they don’t beat the Cowboys on Sunday night.

    Packers have the most overrated QB in the history of the game.All he does is throw 5-10 yard passes and the WR’S do the rest 90% of the time.Talk about inflating you’re QB ratings and your stats.

    Wonder when the Pack will play a team that is .500 or better and NOT missing their best player/players.Saints were without their #1 WR , Falcons without their #1 pass rusher , Lions without 3-4 stating defensive players including their #1 CB and DT and RB.Talk about overrated.

    hurr hurr what a fat loud mouth, this is why nobody likes the Giants, instead of taking it one game at a time all they can think about it the playoffs, hurr hurr!

    @packerhater-How many of their players were injured when they won the SB? Who was the MVP of that game? I can’t remember.

    several years ago, I started a new tradition: whenever the first Giant player announces that “Our playoffs start now,” I put up the Christmas tree.

    “hurr hurr what a fat loud mouth, this is why nobody likes the Giants, instead of taking it one game at a time all they can think about it the playoffs, hurr hurr!”

    That’s absolutely hysterical coming from a Jets fan. How many Super Bowls has your head coach declared the Jets the winner of in August? Hands down, the most moronic fanbase used to be Philly. But, it does appear the Jets fans are determined to give them a race.

    @packerhater: Clearly you have not watched any Packer games this year. Rodgers throws a better deep ball than anyone in the league, and he goes long a lot. That was the stupidest comment I’ve ever read on this site, and I’ve read A LOT of stupid comments on this site.

    I think the giants will pull an upset here. manning is playing lights out and the boys secondary is not playing that great.

    east96th, the sound you just heard was the joke going way over your head.

    @brutus Can’t be an upset because the Giants are favored I do believe.

  11. dino2997 says: Dec 10, 2011 5:06 PM

    Giants record the last 3 seasons:

    8-8 (No Playoffs)
    10-6 (No Playoffs)
    6-6 (So far out of playoffs)

    This defines the word “Mediocre”

    The week opened with Giants +5.5, and is currently at Giants +4.5

    at least they can say they made the playoffs right? I guess?

    This message must be on auto-dial. I know I’ve seen it verbatim in several other topics.

    You need an original take, guy — this one is pretty tired.

    And pretty dumb.

    @packerhater

    Thanks for the education. Like a fool I’d fallen for Roger’s charade. I’m not sure if it’s the 14-0 record, the multiple TD passes per game, or the swagger he gives the entire Packers team that confused me.

    This game has all the trimmings of a game the refs will decide. With that being said, count this as a W for the NYG. Thank you league, and Las Vegas for making this so easy.

  20. mesta1 says: Dec 10, 2011 6:07 PM

    @packerhater.. If you’ve ever watched a football game you don’t see any quarterback chuck the ball downfield every play.. The short passing game revolutionized football years ago.. Rodgers isn’t the only one that figured out that you gotta take what the defense gives you which in the nfl isnt much. And if you look Rodgers has one of the highest yards per attempt If not the highest. Dont hate the player (or team) hate the game, playa.

  21. waltdawg says: Dec 10, 2011 6:10 PM

    Sux for them….Everyone else will be well rested and less shocked that their team had a normal season. How did the Giants get so screwed? How could the comissioner let this happen?

    Was it an oversight? Can’t they fix this? It seems like a major problem that one team has the playoffs now….

  22. abninf says: Dec 10, 2011 6:22 PM

    Impossible to determine which Cowboys and Giants teams will show up. Since ’07 I believe they are 50-50. However, Dallas has lost one game since the end of Oct. (thanks to the coach icing his kicker) and the giants lost every game in November until last week. +5 is funny.

    I can guess your a jets fan you know that other team that plays at Metlife.
    Here are a few facts for you now I know as a jet fan facts are meaningless

    1. Your lapband coach talks super Bowl every preseason never gets there but talks about going.
    2. If everyone hates the Giants then why is that the jets not the Giants had to lower the cost of PSL’s so that they could sell tickets and why is the whole third level not PSL’s for the jets when for the Giants every seat is a PSL and other then the coaches club are all sold at higher prices then the jets?
    3. like most Giant fans we wish woody would have taken his team out to Long Island where it belongs.
    4. Your jets are the only team in NFL history to be so selfish that you moved your training and cost a college there football program.

    Hate the Giants I do not think so

  24. bigbluefan1 says: Dec 10, 2011 6:41 PM

    And for all the packer come lately your streak was almost over
    Why a kid name Eli and some no name WR’s
    One of which is rated 4th in the NFL yes that would be our #80 VC took you to the last click of the clock
    Ask Tom Brady what it was like on week 17 and then again a few weeks latter.

    The Giants rule and all you haters wish you could get season tickets to watch a great team play

  25. nygdefenserules says: Dec 10, 2011 7:27 PM

    @nyjalleffingday –

    If you can read, Snee said “our playoffs start now” – NOT “I’m ignoring these last 4 games and looking ahead to the playoffs”. He’s looking at this game (and the next 3) AS playoff games.

    Please learn to read first, then feel free to comment.

  26. spytdi says: Dec 10, 2011 8:01 PM

    It’s either the Giants by a little or the Cowboys by a lot. Vegas already knows…

  27. nyjalleffingday says: Dec 10, 2011 8:26 PM

    @bigbluefan

    1) Well I’d hope so, I don’t mind the confidence, and it also helps the team. It would be an awful shame to have a talented team being lead by a coach who seems to be content with starting strong but fading down the line and eventually missing the playoffs, wouldn’t it? Ryan keeps his eyes on the prize, just like every other person affilated with the NFL, except Ryan will be honest about his expectations when asked.

    2) You, along with nygdefenserules, are clearly too daft to recognize sarcasm when you see it. Considering my entire family besides my father are Giants fans, it would be rather silly for me to seriously insinuate that nobody likes the Giants. I posted a generic comment about Rex, except I changed it to bash Snee. Ryan made the same exact comment only a few weeks ago and wash bashed mercilessly by the idiots on this board. It’s also very funny how you remember the Jets PSL woes, but forget the Giants made their unsold PSL seats (after lying, and insisting they sold them all) non-PSL’s and sold them at significantly lower price.
    3) As if New Jersey is hallowed ground worthy of only the Giants, what a stupid thing to say.
    4) The Jets did not cost Cortland their football program, and as a matter of fact, the Jets choosing to train in Cortland in 2009 made their local economy boom, with 40K Jets fans spending 2.6 million dollars there in the first year, above 4 millions by the second. (By contrast, 35K Giants fans only spent under 1 million watching them train, and the Jets attracted more people to 1 practice than the Giants did to 3 practices combined. Y’all sure are dedicated!) Please. learn about what you talk about, and learn how to spell.

    @nygdefenserules

    Take your own advice, bub.

    6-6 with four straight losses…that does indeed rule!
    This young man really needs to go back on his meds.

    I hope the Giants win just to put Jerry Jones one step closer to a dirt nap. But no one that is playing with a full deck mistakes the Giants for a ‘great team’.

  29. mella21 says: Dec 10, 2011 11:24 PM

    The Giants have been a maddening team in the past couple years. On one hand it seems like they’ve overcome a lot of really flukey injuries to be competitive. But on the other hand, they just seem to throw it away in the biggest moments.

    Maybe the team is lacking leadership, something just isn’t right.

    I know the giants lost to the pack but we should of on that 3rd down when Eli Manning through a touchdown to Jake Ballard and it was not a touchdown they called it out of bounds and the giants challenged and the still called it no touchdown but the press after the game looked at the pictures and it was a touchdowns the giants would of won by 4 and if we can beat the packers we can beat anybody!!!!

    TIKI IS FLABERGASTED AT THIS SCHEDULING SNAFU

  35. ErikW65 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:55 AM

    Both teams have a strong pass rush but weak secondaries. Both teams have a strong receiver corps and a QB that can make all kinds of throws. But the Giants have two starters out on their O-Line. I think this is the deciding factor. Romo gets better protection. Ware gets to Eli, the crowd goes nuts, causing delay-of-game penalties and 3&outs. The ‘Boys go up by more then 10 points, it makes the Giants more one-dimensional, and decreases the odds that Garrett screws it up. Hope I’m wrong, but I think the Cowboys will win and cover the spread.
