G-men
Back at home with the NFL. But weekends like this wear me out.

The Jets game was a horror. Bad enough that they lost to a mediocre Miami team they should have dominated. It was how they lost. Sanchez seems to have reverted to his rookie ways, throwing INTs every time he had the ball. Santonio dropped a sure TD. I think the Patriots game has robbbed Gang Green of their mojo, which does not bode well for the remainder of the season, with the Steelers and the Bears coming up. I am starting to have flashbacks to the great collapse of '86. Rex, Rex, work your magic, I can't take that again.

As for Big Blue, well, the Giants thumped a lifeless Vikings team playing without Brett Favre. The defense and the running game looked good. Eli, not so much. Two terrible INTs right out of the box. And now we have to play the Eagles on a short week. We haven't beaten the Eagles in what seems like decades. Time to end that streak. But if Eli keeps throwing the ball to guys in the wrong color jersey, it won't be easy.

Re: Rex has a big mouth
Sorry, don't buy the "everyone does it" defense.

Everyone doesn't do it. Look at the recent game between Giants and Seattle. The G-Men hardly threw a pass in the entire third quarter. They just gave the ball to their RBs, down after down, and ran the clock. A mercy killing.

Taking out your starters and putting in back-ups is also good.

It's called "sportsmanship." You've beaten the opponent. No need to kick them when they're down.

Re: Rex has a big mouth
To be fair, the Seahawks were playing with a non-QB and they had other injuries to key players. That guy has no right earning an NFL paycheck as QB.

Coughlin knew that he had absolutely nothing to worry about.

Also note that the Pats were running their basic packages on offense. The Jets were simply that bad.
