Manning Bowl 3

Life is meaningless and full of pain.

And interceptions.

Have to agree. Already hearing the sports pundits saying this is a lost season and we are two games in.

Eli Manning was just intercepted on his way home from the stadium.

I could not believe how many INTs Eli Manning threw. The spirit of Jim Hardy walked among the Giants this day.

Ah! Good to see another fan of Drinky Crow around here. :)

Drinking copiously is the only way to get through some of these games, because the quality of play is just terrible. I can't even watch the teams I hate for the Schadenfreude factor, because it feels too sadistic, even for my blackened cinder of a heart.

Luckily Breaking Bad is here to help us forget there were ever football games this afternoon
That's my hope at least!

Please don't kill a Stark for this

My fears from the draught and training camp appear to be quite real. The O-line is abysmal and Eli is once again regressing. A couple more weeks like this and I'll be rooting for the 2014 draught, a new coach and the end of the Killdrive offensive play calling.

Breathe deep and remember two words: "week two."

They've gone to the Super Bowl 9 and 7. It's Big Blue.

and shows nearing finales with the episode countdown ripping your heart out....

The problems are Wilson can't block, the LBs and DBs are mediocre at best, and they don't have enough depth to overcome their injuries. Eli is just winging it. I still like their chances of turning things around.

Re: Seahawks
Yeah! Go Hawks! Sorry about the Giants and Jets, George. As a Hawks fan I know your pain. We've had many a disappointing season. However, things are starting to look better for us.

Peyton Manning
Aww, Mr. Martin. I feel with you.
I was watching the game per live stream and I am devastate as well.
But you have to confess Peyton Manning did rather well.

I won a little bit of money on this game....you simply can't bet against Peyton.

it was still close until the 4th quarter until NY broke down and denver caught fire..... more like the battle of blackwater, not so much a red wedding

Now I don't hate the Giants
the way I do the Yankees, but it's actually a bit gratifying to see the Jets at 1-1 and our so called "Big Brothers" reeling at a very lopsided 0-2. Am I bitter, contemptible, and petty? Probably. But this is coming from a Jet fan who has sat in bars and at family bbq's and listened to prolonged speeches about the eternal superiority of the Giants over the Jets throughout all of football history. Their recent Super Bowl victories over the Pats only added fuel to those fires.

The animosity that I have as a Met fan for the Yankees is much more pronounced, considering that there's a much longer track record of acrimony there (I come from a line of Brooklyn Dodgers fans), and the Yankees along with their unholy legions of front-running disciples are easily hateable. Plus the Mets and Yanks play every year unlike the Jets and Giants and there's always the recent sting of that 2000 World Series... but I digress.

I've noticed over the years that the Giants are a very likeable team. They have a classy organization and they win with big plays and a fierce pass rush. That's a mix that is very easy to root for. But I'm a Jet fan, always will be. And with that fandom comes a caustic blend of confidence, heartbreak, and utter insanity. And then there's always the prolonged misery of the past few years.

But like I said, I don't hate the Giants, but goddammit if I don't feel a pang of satisfaction with the way things are going right now...

Lifelong Eagles ticket holder and this made my day. My sentiments exactly...but hey, the entire NFC East folded. So I'm calling this a bye week

I really hope Eli's interception rate keeps like this when he plays my Packers. For some reason, he doesn't feel that much like throwing interceptions when he plays against us.

Sep. 16th, 2013 08:34 pm (UTC)
I wish I could say that I'm sorry, but...

Cheer Up, Giants Fan.
Eli made some bad decisions and got some bad breaks. I mean the interception that bounced off of Tony Carter's foot and into the hands of Chris Harris, not in a million years can they replicate that. It's just bad luck. But that time he threw deep to Victor Cruz (I think it was him) for two straight plays was stupid and he paid for that with the pick.

I think the Giants have some talented WRs in Cruz and Nicks and Brandon Jacobs is back now, so that's good. And Wilson did a good job protecting the football this week.

It's only week two anyway.

I couldn't stop wincing
This was a painful game for a Giants fan to watch. I really wanted Eli to win one of these matchups.

Unfortunately, there was no denying that big brother's team looked better in every way.

Sorry, George, but Peyton had to show Eli who was boss for the 3rd time. Actually, as a Bulldog (and Broncos fan) I was excited to see my boy Knowshon get 12 point. Since 1990 teams that started 0-2 have made the playoffs only 8.8% of the time...but that's not 0%. It will be a long season for you but don't give up hope yet.

giant pash rush or lack there of
The giants have not had a consistent pass rush since 2008. Yet every year ESPN and such talk about how the giant defense lives on the pass rush. Its lousy.

For the past 10 years the giants have basically gone cheap on linebackers. You have to pick and choose what positions you spend money on and the giants have ignored this position. I think this is one of the reasons the defense is bad and inconsistent. They are leaving the middle of the field open. These days its pass first and linebackers need to cover.

even if they get the pass rush going, the short and intermidate pass can counter it since you get the ball off faster.

the offensive line is awful. no push whatsoever on running plays.
