As bad as the Giants were in the preseason, it had nothing on how poorly they were in a Week 1 loss to the Lions. The Giants repeated the same mistakes that killed them during last year's disaster of a season, turning the ball over two times. They also were exposed by Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson on defense. The Cardinals are simply a much better team.

I thought the Giants were going to be much improved this year for a number of reasons. If last week is any indication, I was dead wrong. I'm off the bandwagon.

Nothing has shown me so far that the Giants would be able to beat anyone right now. The Cardinals, while not as potent of an offense as Detroit, will still have more than enough firepower to win this one.

The Giants and Eli Manning are as bad as they look.
