Giants 23, Vikings 7

So the Giants finally won a game.  Yay.

I'm not taking the bag off my head yet, however.  Last night was the worst game I've seen in years.

The G-Men were horrible.  They won because the Vikings were even worse.  The Viking QB Josh Freeman especially.  He had no business being out there.  And sad to say, Eli did not look much better.  Yes, he finally had a game with no INTs... but I saw at least three balls that SHOULD have been INTs, including one that was a sure pick-six, only the Viking DBs dropped them all.  And speaking of drops, what the hell is wrong with Hakeem Nicks?  He dropped everything Eli threw him in the first half, and was only marginally better in the second.

Our running back of the week, Peyton Hillis, was the only bright spot.  Well, him and Victor Cruz, who is always a bright spot.  But even Cruz dropped a ball, on what would have been a nice TD.

Beat the Eagles next week and maybe I will believe Big Blue has woken up.  Until then... this win needs to be taken with a block of salt.

As a European I will never understand the US peoples' fascination with American Football. Probably like many US Americans don't understand our fascination with football (or soccer as its called in the US). What's weird though, I've heard the both sides call the other sport "slow-paced". Kinda funny really.

"Soccer" isn't just an American word. What you call football is, can be, or has been called soccer in most of the English-speaking world. Wikipedia has an interesting article on "names for association football" that shows that the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Ireland all tend to use the word soccer. Probably more English speakers than not use the word soccer.

Anyway, that's just a pet peeve.

I was mostly talking about its usage in Europe :)
