eddievercetti: I HATE Giants fans
I HATE Tom Brady and Bill and their dynasty

I was wrong with all my Super Bowl picks

Eagles/Steelers NOPE
Packers/Steelers NOPE
Niners/Ravens NOPE

Now I gonna farking see Super Bowl XLII 1500 times on the NFL Network! I don't care if it'll be a good game, I'm not invested in either team because my hatred of both of them are clear. Maybe it's the Eagles fan in me or I hate their fans, but now, I could give 2 farks about this year's Super Bowl!

Let me just say, no matter what, and if I don't have everyone around for the next 2 weeks, thanks to ALL who made this season real fu, Harv for being a BAL fan with CLASS, and Beck for being a true PIT fan alongside me all year and always had a comforting word for all the bad we experienced.

I'll see it to try to be here in some capacity the next 2 weeks!

I'm talking to you, fat-ass Berman.

Unfortunately for you, it's not going away anytime soon.
The have "Football Giants" signs in their stadium.


It's been 54 years since another professional team in another sport called themselves the New York Giants. It'd be like saying The New England formerly Boston Patriots, or the Utah formerly New Orleans Jazz, ad nauseum.

It's pretentious and stupid. Which pretty much defines much of the programming one finds on espn.

Harv72b: I had this detailed thing written up with my picks for today, chock full of statistics and probably wishful thinking, but in looking at it now it's just too long (that's what she said). So here's a much shorter version:

Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots:
Well, duh, of course the Ravens fan is going to pick Baltimore here. The much shorter version is that while this game matches strength vs. strength (the Pats' offense vs. the Ravens defense), on the other side of things New England's defense is a much greater weakness than the Rice/Flacco offensive attack. Plus I of course have to keep my favorite statistic in here: Baltimore is 7-0 this season against playoff teams, while New England is 0-2 against playoff teams not called the Denver Broncos. Look for a healthy dose of Ray Rice/Ricky Williams here along with a few deep throws against the Patriots secondary, while Baltimore goes with man coverage and some creative blitz packages to slow down Sir Uggalot and his tight end connection. Final score: 27-23

Can I just point out that if Lee Evans holds on to the farking ball in the end zone, I probably nail only the winner but the exact freaking score??? With the exception of Rice having a big day, pretty much everything that the Ravens needed to happen in order to win, happened. Somewhere in this thread is a post I made about needing two more turnovers to win the game...check. Flacco having a strong outing...check. Defense containing Gronk & Hernandez? Well...enough. Yet it's all for naught as the Pats mount one final drive to take the lead, Evans drops the ball in the end zone (in all seriousness, nice play by the NE DB), and then Cundiff shanks the kick that would've sent it to overtime.

New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers:
While we all wanted to see a Saints/Packers rematch and the inevitable race to 100 combined points it would produce, this game is equally appealing in my opinion. On the one hand you have the steady & consistent 49ers, led by a strong defense and running game, while on the other there are the streaky (but white-hot) Giants and an explosive passing attack plus defense that can get a lot of pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Again strength against strength, but the difference-maker to me is that San Fran's offense is just a little better (imo) than New York's D, and the Giants just seem a little more susceptible to the turnover. Harbaugh the Younger cements his claim to Coach of the Year honors with a 26-17 victory.

While there's at least a shared sense of responsibility for the loss in Baltimore (or there should be), as far as the 49ers go it's all going to land squarely on the shoulders of poor Kyle Williams, whose muffed punt and later fumble on a return led to half of New York's 20 points, including the game-winning field goal in overtime. To be fair, Eli Manning had a very solid game playing under murderous pressure, and the Giants' receiving corps came up big in the game with numerous tough (and clutch) catches, but wow. As a total aside, I cannot tell you how much the 49ers defense tonight reminded me of the Ravens D during their 2000 Super Bowl season, and how much Patrick Willis reminds me of a young Ray Lewis (down to the number). Now the question becomes whether or not Harbaugh can keep this mostly young team motivated for a repeat run next season.

Seriously, great couple of games and congratulations to the New England Patriots and the New York Giants for moving onward. And for San Francisco fans & my fellow Ravens supporters, there's no dishonor in the way our teams played this year, and every reason to expect another strong performance next season.

/For the record, I did not kick my cat at any point today.
 
2012-01-22 11:07:01 PM  

cameroncrazy1984: Stupid, sure, but not showboating.



The last time the Giants won an NFC Championship, it was because of a showboat - #56 for the GB Packers - all he had to do was fall on the fumble, but instead he tried to pluck it out of its bounce and win the whole shebang. Showboat for the loss.

Now this, two times, the same asshole losing the the game by wanting to be a superstar more than wanting his team to win.

becksellent: I can't imagine what analogy you would've used if my Steelers had made it all the way, lol. ;) But hey, your guys played a pretty big role in making sure that didn't happen, so like I said earlier, the Ravens have nothing to be ashamed of. Heartbreaker of a game for sure, but one hell of a season, and I don't doubt that you'll be back in the running again next year. (Of course my guys will do everything they can to prevent that from happening, lol, but we both know that's never going to be an easy job.) :) I know it probably doesn't mean much right now (or maybe ever, coming from me, lol), but congrats on a great season, and I'll be looking forward (nervously) to watching our teams play again next year. Cheers.


Nah, if the Steelers were still playing I could safely root against them no matter what. ;) The Pats & Giants are two teams I equally dislike.

he is likely to be fined by the nfl either way, i can only imagine the things he might say on TV if interviewed right this moment

What if he uses someone else's shoe? :P

You were saying?

To distinguish themselves from the professional baseball team of the same name, the football team was incorporated as the "New York National League Football Company, Inc." in 1929 and changed to "New York Football Giants, Inc." in 1937. Although the baseball team moved to San Francisco after the 1957 season, the football team continues to use "New York Football Giants, Inc." as its legal corporate name,[1] and is often referred to by fans and sportscasters as the "New York Football Giants".


Now, kindly go and kill yourself.

I have a feeling the AFC North is going to be absolutely brutal next year (and probably the year after that, and so on and so forth). Steelers & Ravens will continue to be powerhouses, I think, and at the rate the Bengals are progressing, I wouldn't be surprised to see all three teams in the playoffs again next year - assuming we all survive the regular season divisional matchups, that is. ;) Should be interesting, at the very least. :)

There will be lots of infighting in those division games for sure.

I broadened my horizons this year not just with football, but with racing in general. Joined the fine people over in the NASCAR and IRL threads, and boy were they fun. Even watched the Tour De France this year (yikes)! and the women's soccer. SCARY

I think that, and I know this is crazy, even the BROWNS might be rising up a little, at least enough to contend with the #3 spot. Yes they were 4-12, but that was in a divison with 3 playoff teams, with losses by 7, 4, 7, 3 and 1. They actually had a pretty good pass D this year.

If they got some actual recievers, some front 7 depth and a late round/free agent RB, they could contend.

Steelers & Ravens will continue to be powerhouses, I think, and at the rate the Bengals are progressing, I wouldn't be surprised to see all three teams in the playoffs again next year - assuming we all survive the regular season divisional matchups, that is. ;) Should be interesting, at the very least. :)

I think that, and I know this is crazy, even the BROWNS might be rising up a little, at least enough to contend with the #3 spot. Yes they were 4-12, but that was in a divison with 3 playoff teams, with losses by 7, 4, 7, 3 and 1. They actually had a pretty good pass D this year.

If they got some actual recievers, some front 7 depth and a late round/free agent RB, they could contend.

/Fortunately they are the Browns

If all 4 AFC North teams could be awesome, then the rest of the NFL would have to look up to us and step up their games (I'm looking at you, WESTERN DIVISIONS!)


I wouldn't underestimate the NFC West. The Niners look awesome and the Seahawks are underrated.

You know, I think you might be right. I still think Colt McCoy (why isn't anybody talking about him?) has the potential to be pretty decent, so I'm not writing the Browns off yet, especially if they do get some more depth/options for him to work with. So yeah, the whole division could potentially be really tough.

/right now though I'm more worried about the Ravens (like always) and the Bengals
//unless Dalton and Green seriously regress this off-season, I have a feeling that team could cause some trouble
///those kids are pretty good.

Yeah, but to be honest a big part of why they had such a "good" pass D was because they were so awful against the run. See: Ray Farking Rice going off for 204 yards against them. ;)

Harv72b: becksellent: Oh, man. That movie came out when I was in high school, and yeah, guess what instrument I played? >:(

/luckily for you I've moved past wanting to strangle any farker who made that reference. ;)

Oh gawd, that movie came out when I was at my fourth duty station in the army. :(

/Who said I didn't like a little strangling? ;)


Heh, I never actually saw the movie - got so fed up with the constant jokes that I figured I probably wouldn't enjoy watching it, lol.

/How YOU doin'? ;)
