Posting such a nice Jake write-up when you don't even have power? You're a trooper, rob. Hopefully things will be back up and running over there within the next couple days.

rickythepenguin: roc6783: Not a rant exactly, but definitely the best moment in the history of the Jim Rome show - Chris.

ESPN Classic used to air (hell, they still might) old "rome on espn" shows from about the time of the Jim Evberett incident. I saw one with Rick Barry, circa probably 94, 95, and Rome starts the interview by taking pokes at the BIll Cosby sweater Barry is wearing, and Rick, taken aback, makes a quip like, "i didn't know I had to dress 'mod' on your show" and then Rome starts teasing about using the word 'mod'.

very dicky. but hey, that's rome.


To his credit(slightly) Rome appeared to learn from the Jim Everett incident. I didn't watch any of his shows all that much, but after Everett floored him, I never saw him act so prickly to anyone's face when they came on his show.

Treygreen13: Word is that a major hollywood studio is picking up the rights to that last Cowboys game, calling it the best drama they've seen since Citizen Kane. A preliminary script is out.


I missed the game, except the last 4 minutes, thanks for the recap! Very funny!

Glad you are alive Rob. Great job as always!

For some reason I felt BETTER about Dallas after their loss to NY. I totally gave up on Romo in the first half but the defense played well and Romo at least showed he still had something left in him talent wise. Witten also looks to be back to his HOF status. I don't expect Dallas to make the playoffs but they have a shot and I think Romo gets another year and one more chance. I still think Garrett needs to go, I can't stand the bonehead errors in game management. He's not even that good of an offensive coordinator.

rickythepenguin: david tyree doesn't make the helmet catch in i think triple coverage, no super bowl 1 for Eli, what's his nuts doesn't get a shaky (at best) "gave himself up, no fumble" ruling vs. arizona last year circa week 4, you arguably don't make the playoffs, dez bryant's fingers aren't what, 2 inches inside (if that) the endzone, you lose.....but those things happened.

fair play to NYG. i don't care.


This is such a dumb farking way to look at things.

If Tyree doesn't make that catch do the Giants lose? Sure. But if someone else had made a play or two they didn't earlier in the game, the Giants might have won anyway. And if the Pats had a ball bounce a different way they might have lost by even more.

The entire game didn't hinge on that one play. Many other things could have happened to allow the Giants to win by the same score, or lose, or win by more. Ditto Bryant's fingers.

-

To put it another way, plug any successful team in here and we can do the same thing. Every Pats super bowl victory was by less than a TD, right? (I'm too lazy to look up), so in each game they could EASILY have lost if one play had gone a different way.

But the Pats DID win 3 super bowls and, more than that, they won all the playoff games they had to to get to those super bowls, and they had to win a lot of regular season games to get in as well.

Since Eli took over full time, the giants have NEVER had a losing season. They've won one of the best divisions in football 3 times, made the playoffs 5 times, won 8 playoff games and two super bowls.

That's beyond "luck"

rickythepenguin: I wonder if Wash somehow catches fire to steal the East. I"m only saying that based upon how moribund the entire division is, including NYG. NYG has the luck of the irish it seems. gthey have no business being 6-2.


haha, how so?

The Giants played a very close game against the Cowboys they lost but could have won, and they lose to the Eagles on a last second missed field goal! The team could be 8-0. I'm not saying they deserve to be (that's a stupid way to look at things), but even if the Giants got lucky against the Cowboys, they were unlucky against the Eagles.

Also, their 26-3 thrubbing of the Niners might be the most impressive win any team has had so far this year.

Garrett will be done. It's the idiot GM Jones though who is to blame for thinking Head coach is a learn on the job type of thing. I'm tired of seeing this team's talent go to waste.

Ah, our two biggest problems. Romo is a distant third compared to coach Garrett and GM Jones.

Gonz: One of my favorite things to come out of the Mike Gundy rant is on the Jim Rome show. (Yes, I know. I'll stop liking things you don't like eventually.)

It's subtle, but anytime someone says the word "fat", you hear a clip of Gundy saying "FAT!" a half-second later in the background. Same with Hulk Hogan and "brother".


Ha, yea I agree. Another one of my favorites when whenever someone says "Ryan" he will say: "Its not Ryan, its Ryne".

/boom, outta here.

Maybe if Garrett wasn't playing OC & HC at the same time. Maybe if JJ wasn't playing owner & GM. Do they really need to skimp on positions here? I thought the Cowboys had more money than [insert deity of your choice here, not that money would even matter to a deity, but that's a discussion for another time].

I had to actually do the math for the Cards & Niners since SOMEONE* was just too INCONVENIENCED** to do it himself. So it took a little longer than it normally would've. But the important part to remember here is that all graphs are now accounted for.
