Life is miserable and full of pain.

Giants look utterly wretched.  A few good plans from JPP, and maybe we have a new TE emerging.  Nothing else good can be said.  They were humiliated by the Cardinals, with a backup QB.  C'mon.

Jets took a 21-3 lead and still figured out a way to piss it away.  Harassed Aaron Rodgers and sacked him repeatedly, still allowed him to complete the big passes and runs when it counted.  Geno, meanwhile, put up some nice stats early on, but can never seem to make the key throw when the game is on the line.  Well, no, to be fair, he did complete one great pass in crunch time... a TD which was called back when a coach who did not actually have the power to call a time-out somehow called a time-out.  Needless to say, Geno's attempt to duplicate the heroics a few minutes later ended in an INT.

Eli and Geno led the NFL in INTs last year, and both of them are on track to do it again.

And the Cowboys and Patriots both won big, so I don't even have that as solace.

It was not a good day for football. The Saints have lost two in a row now.

At least Buffalo is atop the AFC East. Alas this will probably not last but with Buffalo being there the Pats are not. I think that you should write off the Giants this year, they will only be a disappointment week in and week out. The Jets did show some promise they only have to play 4 quarters instead of 2.

Obligatory response from Wisconsin
As someone who is not a football fan, but has grown up less than thirty minutes away from Green Bay, I feel obligated to articulate the following message.



I apologize.

Yeah, I can relate - high hopes from beating the Pats last week were dashed when we were humiliated by the Bills this week, an inter-conference rival, *and* we lost our star running back at the start of the game. *sigh*

Years of heartbreak have kept me from following the fins very much lately. Grew up with my parents telling me about the glory days of the 70s, but I have yet to experience that. Sad.

Sorry George! But I really enjoyed my Packers big won tonight! However, I was rooting for the Giants and felt that let down! Better luck next week I suppose.

Nice win for the Bolts!
Typical Chargers...Crap one week, gold the next. If we could just be a little more consistent we could be great. But I will enjoy this one for sure. Even I doubted our chances of beating the champs but we dominated them so, hip hip hoo-ray!

What the hell is going on with the Giants btw...? I heard during preaseason about the offensive woes but damn, they look awful.

Guarded Optimism
I was pleasantly surprised to see the Cowboy's coaching staff commit to the run. Controlling the ball (and the clock) helped to cover their most glaring weaknesses: defense and pass protection.

Knowing that this week's opponent (Tennessee) was not nearly as formidable as last's (San Fran) and knowing the Cowboys proclivity for ripping my heart out with a late season collapse, I find it difficult to feel anything beyond guarded optimism.

Well George, at least one team from New York won today - the Buffalo Bills! It's not too late to start cheering for them this year.

ugh. that nonsense with the jets timeout thing was INFURIATING.
Sep. 15th, 2014 05:47 am (UTC)
Just think 2007.

As for the Jets...

Dear George, I have one question for you about your book, the name for the character Stanis Baratheon, you borrowed from Prince Pyotr Bagration? Who was the best Russian general in the words Napoleon.
Sorry to offtop.

Er, sorry - um, you're talking about sport, right? I'm afraid I have no idea what you mean! :-(

Well, having said that, although the Jets lost in a very Jet-like manner, I have the feeling Geno is turning a corner. So there is a silver lining there.

Jags Fan
Well, I am becoming more and more convinced that the team who played the first half of our first game this season was a group of doppelgangers who dropped out of the time/space continuum for just 30 minutes. Now they have returned to their own time/space and are on their way to winning that AU's Super Bowl equivalent.


BTW, the talking heads on ESPN seemed to think Ryan did indeed call for the time out in question. Maybe he just was having a hand spasm?

The Bills are only keeping the top spot warm until the Pats need to re-claim it. :)

Enjoy it while you can, Buffalo
Couldn't agree more. Can't believe the greatest novelist of our time is a GIANTS/JETS fan. I mean, come on, Mr. Martin ;)
