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.

Vikes fan here. The general consensus is that none of the three QBs are really an option. I advocated for Ponder when he was drafted, but he just can't shake it as a starter. Cassel is a bit more polished, though people forget that he was absolutely awful last year on a very talented team (as you can see this year). Josh Freeman *is* intriguing, with his cannon arm and his prior success, but he's not going to save the season this year. Might as well start him and let him get his bearings with the team if they feel he's a long-term option.

Aside from all that, most people feel like it's time for Leslie Frazier and most of his coaching staff to go anyway. Poor play calling, complete lack of fire, reluctance to play talented rookies... they just don't seem to want to win.
