The Giants took an unfamiliar 0-6 record into Sunday’s off day but the team’s newest member insisted their season is far from over. Jon Beason — who had a strong Giants debut at middle linebacker in Thursday’s 27-21 loss at Chicago — insisted Big Blue cannot only still turn around their season but steer it all the way into the postseason. “You can ask the 7-9 Seahawks who beat the 11-5 Saints as couple years ago. … Win your division and you’re in the dance: That’s it’’ Beason said. “This team is notorious for getting in the show as a wild card and winning the whole thing so you know what? Get in the dance. “Everybody is 0-0 [in the playoffs]; you throw the records out. You’ll have a home game in the wild card if you win nine times out and 10 and we know that. That’s the beauty of this season is that it’s not lost yet.’’ Beason said the Giants can draw not only from their own 2007 wild-card run to the title but also from the Seahawks’ postseason three years later. Seattle not only became the first losing team to make the playoffs but also knocked off the defending champion Saints. And Beason insisted Big Blue can make a similar run. “Yeah no question. Even before I got here from afar [I saw talent]. The injuries kept piling up but we still know we’re leaving plays out there and we can compete with anybody’’ Beason said. “It’s a crazy year. This never happens to the Giants 0-6. But at the end of the day we’re still in the playoff hunt so you can’t ask for anything better at this point.’’ For the modest price of a conditional late-round pick the Giants think in Beason they have landed a low-risk high-reward flier who can help them get there. He’s a 28-year-old three-time Pro Bowler with a chip on his shoulder and a point to prove. Two days after Beason was acquired from the Panthers he saw special-teams action in the loss to the Eagles. Four days after that he started at middle linebacker against the Bears.
