The study of the scientist states that the Neanderthal brain and modern human brain and similar during the birth. However, during the adulthood, their brain became larger. They were stronger than modern human with a huge body size; Male (164-168 cm) and female (152-256 cm)
Plus im pretty sure i saw a discover channel documentary that had some hypothesis or theroy that neanderthals somewhere got outperformed because of size and skin ratio but its a long time since iv seen it.
This critter is known only from jaws and teeth, and the height/upright posture is based on the wider angle of the jaws--as a critter reaches bipedal locomotion the jaws have to spread at the base to allow the various parts of the neck to fit between them. Not all agree that Giganto had upright posture.
In any case, Giganto is known from fossils dated perhaps as much as 9 million years ago to about 100,000 years ago. As such, it overlapped in time with modern humans, but was not generally found in the same locations.
So, creationists believing in "giants" in biblical times have to:
1) account for the antiquity, far more than the 4,004 BC they often advocate, of Giganto fossils.
2) account for the lack of fossils or bones from Giganto within the time of human history.
3) account for the vast differences between Giganto jaws and teeth and those of modern humans from the same time period. And
4) just provide some evidence for the many claims made about giants.
When you actually look at the evidence, Giganto is far more likely to be the direct ancestor to Bigfoot than to be part of a race of giants during biblical times.

There be a legend in a land not fare from me just over the hill along a windy road. It speaks of a man Martin Krpan that liked to trafic wit salt whiteout paying the Cezar's taxes. And this man was a Giant. One evening when a frightful blizzard sowed on a narrow road. He happened upon the Cezar, Make way cried Cezar charrioter but there was no place for the giants although small horse but fully loaded to go. Realising whose chariot it was martin picked up his fully loaded horse by the belly with both hands and moved him away. Curious Cezar asked what are you transporting said Cezar, Sharpening stones my Cezar, he answered. And cezar went and checked a saddle bag and as he opened he saw sharpening stones, but he did not know the stones where only hiding precious salt deeper in the bags. Cezar remembered this years later when all his knights falied to defeat a turkish champion, one on one he challenged scores and none could touch him. so he sent for martin, so as story goes he goes on testing weapons and all of them are useless so he makes an axe, then he chops down a large linden tree in Cezar back yard makes a mace, then he asks for a horse he pulls out every horse Cezar has out of the stable by the tail, then asks his men to try and do that to his horse they cant, so he challenges the turk they ride down the turk slashes his sword it gets traped in the linden mace he knocks him from his horse chops of his head Cezar asks what he wants as a reward he says to trafic salt tac free. and the tax man was pissed.
And there is some evidence for this legend from 300-400 years ago.

The Bible does mention that there were some giants in the pre-Flood world, but ‘giant’ is a relative term. To some people groups today, a US basketball ‘dream team’ would certainly qualify for that description. But there are limits to the degree to which one can speculate about the size of past members of the human race, and it is likely that the approximately 2.7-metre (9-foot) Goliath was at or very near the size limit.
Say a giant was scaled 4 times the size of an average man. The mass would have increased 64 times, the cross sectional area of the leg bones would have only increased 16 times. So, in order to support the weight, the leg bone thickness would have to be increased dramatically. Many other aspects of this ‘scaling up’ issue would mean that the entire human body would have to have been totally ‘redesigned’, such that the person would look very, very strange indeed to our eyes, and not just because of the ‘giant’ aspect. http://creation.com/giant-footprint
