Hate Dem Cowboys

Well, the 2012 NFL season got off to a start with a resounding thud tonight, as my beloved New York Football Giants lost their opening game to the hated Dallas Cowboys.

The key factor seemed to be the depleted New York secondary, which wasn't able to cope with Dallas's third-string wide receiver... especially after our fourth-string cornerback went down and had to be replaced by our fifth-string cornerback.

How the hell our secondary can be down to its fifth string in the first bloody game of the season passes all understanding. I know that injuries are a big part of football, but the Giants always seem to suffer a rash of losses before the season even begins. sigh

Victor Cruz dropping all those passes did not help either. I love you, Victor... but maybe less salsa dancing and more practice in the off-season would have been wise.

Big Blue's running game looked just as anemic as it did last season. Our vaunted first round draft choice, Virginia Tech RB David Wilson, fumbled the first time he touched the damn ball. Coughlin did not seem eager for him to touch it again thereafter.

Perhaps the Jets will redeem things on Sunday, when Rex finally unveils the explosive O he has been hiding all preseason. (Hah)

Atleast you were in a commercial!
If you noticed amazon had a new ad showing off their new kindle. Twenty seconds in, the user is looking up, "A Game of Thrones" on amazon. I thought it was cool, and I'm pretty sure the Giants were losing at that point. So if you caught it you probably felt a little better.

As for the game, there were too many missed opportunities by the Giants offense. Like you mentioned the costly fumble on their second drive, dropped balls by Giant receivers, and only one TD from three red zone appearances.

But the game changing play of the night was that horse collar penalty during the interception return. Dallas preventing that pick-six was a heads up penalty.
