I Hate Football

Life is miserable and full of pain.

A truly wretched day of football today. Both of my teams sucked big time.

Hard to say which was the most miserable performance. Eli played pretty well for the Giants, but his receivers dropped every ball he threw at them, as if they were determined to prove that, yes, the team will miss Plaxico big time. In the afternoon game, well, the Jet offense was okay, but the defense couldn't stop the 49ers. They just marched up and down the field at will. Singletary has that team playing much harder than Nolan did. The Jets game also had some truly awful and one-sided officiating by Ed Hochuli and his crew. The turning point of the contest may well have been when Leon Washington's long return for a TD was called back on a phantom holding call. I don't know what's happened to Hochuli. In past years, he's been one of the NFL's best refs, but this year he and his crew have been terrible. It seems as if they blow a call every week... and a BIG call at that. Not that the Jets did not deserve to lose. These last two weeks, they've been playing as if they thought the season ended with the Titans game.

Pfui.
