Sunday Bloody Sunday

Some talking heads are saying this morning's game between the Giants and the Saints was a great contest. I suppose it was. If you love offense, and hate defense.

I love defense, and I hate losing, so I went away very unhappy. I mean, 52 to 49, really? REALLY? Nobody stopped anybody, ever. 52 - 49 is a basketball score.

Okay, Eli was great, Odell was great, the Giants offense kept coming back and coming back. But the Giants defense must have missed the plane to Nawlins. Aside from the one pick six, they were absent all game. And the end of the game was ludicrous. After all that scoring, the game turned on a facemask penalty on our punter.

And just when I thought life could not get any worse, I watched the Jets game.

That one was lost the moment Fitz went down and Geno Smith came in. Geno showed flashes, sure, Geno always shows flashes. But when the clock is ticking down and the game is on the line, he will always came up short. As he did this afternoon. I sure as hell hope that Fitzpatrick can come back next week. If not, then I pray Todd Bowles sits Geno Smith and gives a shot to the kid they drafted, Bryce Petty. Because if Geno is our starter again, the season is over.

Also, we need Nick Mangold back... though his young replacement did well. And Cromartie and Marshall suffered injuries as well. Those could be season-killing too, if they are serious.

All in all, a horrid day. Life is miserable and full of pain.

Only one consolation: the Cowboys lost too. And just as painfully as the Giants.

Sorry about the Jets
I am sorry for all the losses today. Being a Raider fan, I can't say we've had too many positives recently but this win was nice :) Based on what you saw, any predictions on the rest of the Raiders season? Or are you strictly a NY guy?

Re: Sorry about the Jets
I think the Raiders are on their way up. Carr looks legit.

They won't win their division this year, but could contend for a wild card.

NYG D
With a lot of major components missing like Prince, Beason and of course, a pass rusher ... Spags and NYG D knew they were in for a tough fight. Sadly, I don't think they even put up a fight! Saints receivers were running all over the secondary and Breesus had forever to throw to a target of choice.

Oh well, on to Tampa!

If you told me that the Giants and the Saints would put up that many points a week ago, i would have called you crazy.

I know the feeling
I'm a Lions fan, so our entire existence is based on misery and pain, this season being particularly worse than recent years. Time to fire everyone and start planning for next year I suppose.

This did not go well. As a baseball fan, last nights game for Mets fans hurt.

NFC East
So the division is looking like a dumpster fire. The Giants are of course inconsistent, Dallas may be lost by the time Romo comes back, Chip Kelly proved unworthy of making any sort of personnel decision, and my Skins are the Skins with Kirk playing brilliant one week and godawful the next.

That being said, who ya got? I still think the Giants win it, they have the best QB/coach combo and are used to it. Philly's D can't hold up forever and Romo won't be back soon enough. I don't think they will win a game without him.

Fear of Wun Wun, and those Giants that ate Belicho
To give you some further consolation, Patriot fan checking in here and I will wager anything that it will be the Giants that take down the Patriots first this year.

They might have been in trouble when Fitzpatrick went down and mangold out, but the defense seemed to be lost. Like so lost I think they left their courage in Foxboro. What the heck happened to this defense. Bowles is gonna have to figure out a way to get them back, and get that 5th win. Or it's gonna get ugly.

all the best to all your injury players.
yeah I guess that is what the patriots do.
still think with this HC you guys have a good shoot at the playoffs.

NFC East
As a life long Eagles fan (who got his wish - at least as far as the Giants and Cowboys go..), all I can say is... how the mighty NFC East has fallen!

I thought the Baylor vs. TCU game was entertaining... er.. I mean the Giants v Saints.

"And just when I thought life could not get any worse..."

You remembered the Lions? Oh god! The Lions... :(

Wishing the Giants and Jets the best of luck this season.

Fireworks going off outside my apartment and people cheering. Just checked the World Series score and understood.

Sorry, George.

There is just a lack of attention to detail with Tom Coughlin coached teams that leads to colossal game costing mistakes. The game today should've gone to overtime - completely pathetic that the Giants couldn't execute the punt and cover. We also saw the ridiculousness in the first game of the season with Dallas which cost us that game. I like Coughlin and what he stands for, but I think if we don't make the playoffs this year it's time to move on.
