Smith on what impresses him most about the Giants:
Their defense is rated No. 2 in the league. That says a lot. They are very tough to run the ball against and their front seven is pretty awesome when you think about it. Strahan outside, Hamilton inside, Barrow inside and their Will linebacker [Dhani Jones] and not only that, they all are playing very good football. And their secondary is very strong. They present a very tough challenge for anybody to run the ball against.
Smith's memories of playing the Giants through the years:
They all have been hard-hitting, head-knocking, tough-yardage, just very physical ballgames. I cannot remember a time when it was ever easy. Even though I might have had a couple of big games against them, in my opinion they have always played us tough. They are a very good ball club.
