SI's Peter King: Giants 'Big, Big Trouble For Anyone Right Now'

Praise for the New York Giants is pouring in from all corners in the wake of Sunday's 37-20 thrashing of the Green Bay Packers in an NFC Divisional Round game. Peter King of SI.com joined the praise-party Monday morning in his weekly 'Monday Morning Quarterback' column.

King recounted the decision by then-GM Ernie Accorsi to trade for Eli Manning in 2004, and refuse to include Osi Umenyiora in the deal. Manning was brilliant, as usual, Sunday and Umenyiora had a strip/sack of Aaron Rodgers that was probably the game's critical defensive play.

In his 'Fine Fifteen,' King had the Giants, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers as co-No. 1s. The Giants certainly have come a long way.

Here is part of what King said in reviewing Sunday's New York victory:

The Packers looked a lot more like a 7-9 team Sunday than 15-1. Credit the Giants quarterback for being better than the presumptive MVP, the Giants receivers being better, and the Giants defense being loads better.

Here is what he said in ranking the Giants atop his 'Fine Fifteen':

Memories of 2007 are so valid they're scary. Eli Manning hitting every receiver even slightly open, and a pass rush that won't quit. Big, big trouble for anyone right now.
