Oh, Glorious Game

Life is magical and full of joy.

Two wonderful victories for my football teams today. The Jets dominated and demolished a sad, wounded, mistake-prone Dolphins teams, and sent them one step closer to a winless season, and the Giants came from behind in the last two minutes to eke out a nailbiter over the Bears in Chicago.

Pardon me. I must do my happy victory dance.

(But I'm still not convinced that Eli is the answer. He has flashes where he's good, but just as many where he's awful. Will the Hefty Lefty ever get a chance?)

Last week there was a headline in the daily News that said "Eli, your teams uniforms are BLUE!" I think his biggest problem is all the interceptions and fumbles.

I personally would not pull against the Giants if the got rid of Eli. I really can't stand him.

Sadly, a victory against the Dolphins is never something to be proud of :/

Once Tom Coughlin goes, Eli and the entire team will improve, IMHO.

Be careful what you wish for. Remember Ray Handley?

The Giants-Bears game was particularly enjoyable, and i congratulate you on an almost-certain Giants playoff bid, George.

I too did the happy dance. My beloved is a Seahawks fan and I kept switching the channels. To have the Eagles lose was just gravy.

I am sad that that Jets are so not in it this year but to win one is a sweet thing.

Hefty Lefty
I've said it before... I'll say it again... there's something about watching a offensive lineman play quarterback! I loved Lorenzen at Kentucky. I'd love to see him get another shot at some game time. Watch out though... there's another Kentucky QB getting ready to hit the NFL. Woodson has some serious potential for the future.

Pillsbury Throwboy for the win!

I really do think he could be a better QB than Eli. Hopefully he loses another 20 - 30lbs of fat. It'll make him even more mobile and less likely to get injured.

Eli does have a pretty big shadow that he is playing under, but that is no excuse. I agree. He looks good sometimes, but then he is just terrible. I am reminded of a great game against my beloved Seahawks where he played exceptionally bad. I can’t wait for them to play again, hopefully at Qwest. Moving on. I’m glad to see the Hawks finishing strong with two goal line stands in two weeks. Lofa, 3 interceptions, that was awesome. I hope they can keep it up and start showing some consistency on defense. They just give up too many big plays.

Your NY Giants
Hi George, long time fan, first time poster. First let me say that my wife and I are HUGE fans of your 'Song of Ice and Fire Series'. They are our favorite fantasy book series.

However, I am also a giant (cute I used the word 'giant') fan of the Minnesota Vikings football franchise. As a result I must point out that last week they destroyed your favorite football team, the NY giants (that name is slightly over-compensating I think, like calling a football team the 'awesomes').

Adrian Peterson is the greatest thing to ever happen to professional football.

Re: Your NY Giants
The greatest thing ever!?

Giants vs Colts championship game made football more than just a niche sport, Willie Joe and the Jets vs Colts Superbowl made football mainstream, the Heidi Bowl guaranteed it stayed mainstream. Now, players who were great for football: Lawrence Taylor had greater impact and was better for pro football. And can you change the channel without seeing Payton?

As a Syracuse student, all I can say is.... fo' shame. The Big East had a chance! This was our year!

Except for Syracuse, but that's besides the point.

I can't believe the Dolphins were favored.

I know the Jets are bad, but dude, we beat Pittsburgh. We can't be that awful.

I swear, at this point in our words-fail-me miserable season, I'm almost hoping we don't win a game - at least we'd get something out of this year, even if it is only a negative record. *sigh*

Dolphins
Must admit, the present Dolphins management seems intent on destroying the team. They are reaping what they sowed this season. The moves they made have been insane. Trading away Wes Welker? And to a division rival, no less? Trading away Chris Chambers? Drafting Ted Ginn Jr. when Brady Quinn fell into their laps and they had no QB?

There are rumors that they also plan to dump Zack Thomas and Jason Taylor in the off-season. "Rebuilding" is the excuse, but you don't rebuild by dumping your best players.

They will get the first overall choice in the next drafter. With the kind of decisions they're making now, they'll probably use it on a punter.

Giants-Bears was happily intense. Of course, whenever we noticed Sexy Rexy going back to pass, both Mr. X and I shouted "Fuck it, I'm going deep!!" Ah, so glad that the Giants pulled it out in the end.

I just have to wonder... what's the LJ message going to be, if one team wins, and the other doesn't? "Life is magical and has no purpose"? "Life is meaningless and full of joy"? ;-)

Cowboys beat the packers. That was good enough for me.
