People are saying that the Giants are a different team since the week 1 matchup. I say the Cowboys are different as well, we have a secondary now (sort of). With that said, Plaxico still scares me, but not enough to be too worried.

Eli plays well against the Cowboys and he's at home.  Advantage Giants.

The D that was the worst I'd ever seen in week one has tightened up.   I believe that they are seriously embarrassed about that.  The first Defensive series for the G-Men will set the tone of the game.


Brodie-I have the Eagles-Giants game on TIVO that I haven't converted yet, but if you're interested, I'd trade you a copy for the Giants/Falcons game.  Please let me know.


I really like the "Superfan" feature that I made DirecTV give me this year (I threatened to walk because "I am a Giants fan and we'll be horrible this year.  I need an excuse NOT to watch") so they threw it in.   They air the entire game's plays in 30 minutes without any bullshit, so when I get 4 weeks of those, I throw 'em on a disc and am done.  Good stuff!

Anytime I'm ready to take the Giants seriously I'm reminded of Tom Coughlin and I change my mind.

I think the Cowboys are overrated. There's nothing about them that inspires fear.  I actually feel that way about the entire NFC.

I actually think The Pack is scary. Not in a NE, Indy sort of way, but they creep up on you and next thing you know the game is over and they have more points on the board. It's weird; they're not overwhelming but they just seem to make the right plays at the right times this year. Like the 2001 Pats. Not saying they'll win the SB or anything, but I could see 'em (at least the way they're playing right now) taking down the 'Boys in the NFC Championship Game.

Pack having zero running game will be their downfall.  You just cannot pass all the time for an entire season.  Even the old Rams teams would run the ball and they threw more than anyone I can remember.   Hey, they kicked the Giants ass (in NJ, no less) this year but the Giants are like jeckyll and hyde.  I honestly don't have a clue any particular week what they are going to do.

I noticed that when GB beat my Chiefs. Their run game is HORRIBLE. Still, they have the moxy this year and that's what's scary.

I think NE will take Super Bowl revenge over GB for their loss in '97.

I'll be shocked if the Super Bowl isn't New England vs Dallas this year.

 

By the way, Giants win this one. The week off gives them the edge.

 

Allow me to reveal my secret weapon in the Football Pick 'Em Pools this year.

Well I'm hoping that the week off affects the Giants as much as it did Colorado in the World Series. I'm sticking to my original pick - Cowboys win 35 to 13.

The only team in the league who I believe has put up more points than the Cowboys  this year is the Pats. They're hardly overrated.


I'd put money (not your US peso shit dollars either) on it with you and give the points even if I wasn't a Cowboys fan. Not a team in the NFC that is even in their league.

I have T.O., Romo, the Cowboys defense and Plexico Burrus on my fantasy team.  So I guess I am hoping the Cowboys win something like 49-14 with Burrus scoring the Giants only touchdowns.

Well that was a fun game to watch.  The final score of 31 to 20 did not match my earlier prediction of 35 to 13 but it was close enough for me. :D

Paging the NY Giants.

We are requesting your presence on the field for the second half of the game.

What a shitty 2nd half. Looks like Eli is getting into second half of the season mode just fine.

The Cowboys are clearly a better team this season.  Romo had guys in his face and made some really tough throws.  I want to knock him for being a faggy metrosexual with that backward hat but he's a gamer.  Otl called it and I own up to that.

Congrats to you Cowboy fans.

Of course, I'd welcome a 3rd shot in the playoffs for the right to lose badly to the Pats.

They will meet in the playoff's and Eli will win, also don't worry Giants fan, it is getting closer to the time when Romo gets hyped and then all of sudden, he comes right back down to the ground, everytime Romo gets praised and is in the talk of great quarterbacks, he drops the ball and it is happening soon

For those unaware, Krazykid called the Cowboys landing at 9-7 last year ... and he waited until they were 8-4 to call it. Take his word to the bank.

You know - you would be much more accurate substituting Eli Manning for Romo every time in this entire sentence.

Romo threw a zillion INTs against the Bills, who are the worst coached team in the league.

Jesus H. Christ - I never said that Romo was perfect. But the main thing to remember about the Buffalo game is that despite an awful game overall he still drove the team downfield twice during the final minutes for a TD and then the eventual game winning FG. Who would you rather have right now leading your team - Romo or Eli Manning ????

As a BIG Blur fan I gotta say that Eli played well.  i think the Cowboys have lost a bit and it will be a good game on Sunday.

Go G-Men!

Well sure - if the Giants manage to win you can say that you called it all along but if the Cowboys win ( and they will win ) you can blame it on Dallas having the home field advantage, the refs making sure that it will be a Dallas vs New England Super Bowl or some other flimsy excuse. The fact is that Eli played very well today but he will not come anywhere near repeating these heroics next week. My prediction - Dallas wins fairly easily 28 to 13.

Eli played OK vs. a team that was pretty weak.  This coming from a Bucs fan.  The NFC South isn't exactly a strong division.

The Bucs D was missing it's top cover corner Brian Kelly.  When Kelly is our Barber plays the cover corner wich makes him one dimensional (No blitzes).  With out it's best Defensive Tackle).  Without Cato June at LB, and he's a stud.  I can't call him their number one LB, because I'm too big a fan of Derrick Brooks. And without it's starting strong saftey.

The Bucs offense was ONLY without it's best receiver and best running back.

Lets not cannonize Eli yet.

As a big Giants fan, I am very concerned.  I always think back to 1986 and the NYG-Redskins rivalry.  We won both times in the regular season, and they were pretty close games.  Then, we spanked them in the Meadowlands (it was Carl Banks coming out party, as he played the game of his life).  That's what I think of every time a team tries to erase an 0-2 deficit in the playoffs. 

My mind says Dallas will win, but it will be closer than people think.  My heart says, of course, that this playoffs could be Eli finally earning his money.  I hope for the latter.

I'd much rather play Seattle, who I still maintain is not that good.

I dreamt last night that Jax defeats Indy in the next round, then woke up and saw the pairings today. So much for my premonition.

NE over Jax - Garrard's in over his head.

Indy big over SD - Fired Shottenheimer to win one easy playoff game.

GB over Seattle - Favre won't throw two TDs to Seattle (will he?) EDIT - this is the game that could be the upset.

Dallas over Giants - Eli does his Deer in Headlights.

Giants have a better shot over Dallas that Seattle does against GB. Seattle has no running game (Alexander is horrible) and the GB D will challenge Hasselbeck to beat them.  Holmgren's 0-3 vs. the Pack at Lambeau.   Make that 0-4.

Agreed on the running game, but Seattle made mincemeat of Washington, which had been playing inspiring ball lately. Coulda been the homefield advantage, but still. It was impressive. I think Dal-Giants will come down to TO: he's a big game player and this is a big game.

Copied and pasted from ESPN.com:

"Right now, it's difficult to know if Owens will be available. He apparently has been rehabilitating his high ankle sprain so relentlessly that he was meeting with trainers on Christmas Day and New Year's. If we had to wager, we'd assume Owens will be dressed on Sunday. His ankle probably won't be 100 percent -- such injuries tend to linger -- but his presence alone makes all the difference for the Cowboys' offense."

I thought he was in a little bit better shape than this report is indicating. If he's out or a non-factor, then Giants do have a chance - assuming Eli doesn't throw too many INTs.

They need to change his name to Enigma Manning.  Christ, what an emotional rollercoaster he puts a fan through!

Bingo or any other old G-Men fans, do you guys ever remember Simms being as up and down as Eli when he was just a kid?  I remember fans bitching about him but always thought he was pretty solid, even if Parcells sometimes didn't (ie-benching him for Scott Brunner).

And he "gets great separation after the catch".  His buddy, Marion Barber, is a hell of a "downfield runner".

I don't think Simms was as inconsistent as Eli but I don't think he was ever truly accpeted until they won the Super Bowl. I think going into the Denver game people were still worried about him.

On another note, Simms is probably my alltime favorite football player but there is no way they make it to or win SuperBowl XXV with him as QB. Hoss just brought something that the Giants had had since Tarkenton and haven't had since, a mobile QB.


Edit- Was it Parcells that kept benching him or was it Ray Perkins? I thought once Bill got there the QB situation was stabalized.

I remember that it was Perkins in 1981 who benched Simms and then Brunner led them to the playoffs.  Maybe Simms got hurt (?) in 1982 and Brunner returned as QB, but I do remember Brunner being our QB that year as well.  That was the strike year.

In 1983, it was Parcells first year and we had high hopes but went like 3-13.  It was a terrible year.  Maybe that's the year I am thinking of.  Not sure. I 'll have to research that.

Remember Gary Jeter, the defensive end?  Parcells fucking hated him and shipped him to LA after that 83 season .  I remember reading that Brad Benson once said that Parcells grabbed him and told him if Jeter got any sacks against him that day that he'd cut his nuts off!  I think I read that in Parcells biography.

Funny story. Wasn't Gary Jeter the one on the United Way commericals that had the father with no legs? Don't ask me how I remember that. He was a good player.

Any thoughts on these Giants from the Parcells era?

Center Bart Oates

Placekicker Matt Bahr

Running Back Otis Anderson

For some reason I loved playing as the Giants when Tecmo Super Bowl came out. Bahr could hit a field goal a mile long.


My Chiefs were stacked, too: Old Man DeBerg at QB tossing bombs to JJ Birden. Then you had Christian Okoye AND Barry Word at RB. Awesome team.

All studs.  Bavaro was the most bad-assed of all the offensive players.

Tecmo Bowl is the single greatest video game of all-time, IMO.  Bo Jackson and Walter Payton were my favorites.  I always thought that Bernie Kosar really threw like his Tecmo Bowl guy!:D
I'd rate Sega Hockey '93 just behind it.

Great run this year for the Cowboys but it is all over now. Story below.




Tony Romo apparently spent the bye weekend in Mexico with Jessica Simpson and who appear to be football-sized pals and/or bodyguards.

The original post appeared on flynetonline.com and immediately went through several Web sites, such as The Big Lead and Sports by Brooks, and finally to Fark, which means we'll probably be hearing about it on Leno or Letterman.

But what we find particularly embarrassing for Romo is not that he was with Simpson when some Cowboy fans would prefer he be studying game tapes or something (how about practicing those placekick holds, just in case) but that in one photo, this first one here on flynetonline, he bears a striking resemblance to comedian George Lindsey as Goober Pyle.

I don't buy this whole "Tony Romo as a hearthrob" gimmick. He's a turdburgler through and through. He just struck it rich.

Good thing that coaches never lie about injuries. ;)

He plays. The guy is a gamer. (where's the sports cliche list?)

And he "gets great separation after the catch".  His buddy, Marion Barber, is a hell of a "downfield runner". 

Both those guys give "110% out there" and take it "1 game at a time."

I assume you mean they "leave it all on the field" while "wearing their heart on their sleeve."

Of course.  They "know what's at stake" and both those guys are "big time players'.

According to Wikipedia, Simms torn a knee ligament in preseason and was out for whole 82 season.

In '83 Parcells started Brunner but during the sixth game put in Simms.  Simms injured his thumb on his second drive and was out the rest of '83 also.

But do they "bring their game faces?"

Not only do they " bring their game faces " but they will be " wearing their game faces. "

I posted this in the playoff thread...

I'll save everyone the trouble.

The Cowboys suck. Romo is gay. T.O. is a punk. Roy Williams plays dirty. KrazyKid was right. Eli Manning is the man.

Did I miss anything?


I'll hold off on the GB avatar for now.

EDIT: Go Packers  <-------- See avatar.

In all fairness, I went by my 1986 rule (Giants beating the Redskins 3 times) and assumed the Giants would lose.  Why they did not involve Marion Barber more in the second half is beyond me.  He was an animal in the first half.

that hurt them, starting him, and allowing the giants to get all his hits in the first half, by the second half adjustments are made,, thats why barber is good, in the second half your worn down, and he is just too much to tackle,

I totally agree. That is exactly why Barber is as good as he is. Bad decision IMO.

Let's see, SD at NE and NY at GB. I'm starting to think my SB prediction will come true...

EDIT

Found my prognostication:

osted: Tue Nov 20th, 2007 09:01 am  beejmi wrote: New England -15 vs Dallas

New England -17 vs Green Bay

New England -20 vs NY Giants

New England -21 vs Seattle

At this point in the season I'd say NE covers the spread against GB.

They say "football is a game of inches" (very cliche) but I have to tell you that I thought two teams crossed paths and took different directions just before the half.

With the Cowboys up 14-7, once the Giants tied it with seconds remaining before the half that in my mind changed the course of things. The Cowboys probably would have held on for the win if they stopped New York then.

I just knew that there was something fishy. The Giants cheated Sunday and here's the proof: http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/lynsey-nordstrom-photos-jessica-simpson-twin-hired-by-nypost-for-giants-game-15415
