Rwa2play: Di Atribe: Hm, nyess, if you listen closely enough, you can almost hear the whistle of the Giants falling rapidly through the atmosphere. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Untimely injuries + No running game = Shiat happens.  Coughlin shouldn't quit/get fired, the staff does need a shake-up, and Reese needs to start scouting for O/D Linemen today.


To be fair, the Saints can't really run* for sh*t and have also had very untimely injuries... that were solved by depth. I see where you're coming from but the reasons you listed aren't all that's going on up there.

*By this I mean a traditional run, not all those screens for YAC that have burning the league's ass so far.

/I don't feel that it's Coughlin. Remember in 2007 when the entire press and some players were calling for his head over the summer and first few games? Anyone remember what happened that year?

FuManchu7: In my totally unbiased opinion, Atlanta should send Gonzales over to the Saints for his chance at a Superbowl.  A 2 TE formation with Graham and Gonzales would be near unstoppable.


I still remind my younger friends that this Golden Graham mania was a thing long before Jimmy. That, and Gonzalez is approaching 40 and STILL one of the tops in the league when given the proper environment. I have hated the Falcons since before I copped my first side-boob, but there is nothing wrong with admiring an outstanding player whose only flaw is wearing a uniform that requires sedatives on my end.

The situation you describe almost makes me giggle. Not going to happen, but still.

bionicjoe: Romo is a great QB


I don't think it's a shiat defense. I mean, it is right NOW, but not always. He's a great QB with a middling defense. And that keeps him in a lot of games. But because he's never played with a *good* defense, he has to try and win at the end. And yeah... sometimes he doesn't. But the kid can ball.

/Also hate the Cowboys.

bionicjoe: Since ESPN can't do this, let me.

The Oakland Raiders defense forced the Denver Broncos to punt. Multiple times.
The Dallas Cowboys defense did not force a single punt.

OAKLAND.

Why does Romo "ALWAYS" make the big mistake at the end of the game? Because he's ALWAYS in that position.
The Dallas defense damn near lost to the Giants who had given up 5 turnovers. It took a team-wide Delhomme to ice that one.

Romo is a great QB with a shiat defense. Every damn year.
And I don't like the Cowboys.


Exactly. Romo can't win it by himself. The offense can't win it by themselves. DeMarcus Ware can't be everywhere on the field. It's downright silly.

And you forgot San Diego, where our defense couldn't get off the field to save their lives, much less the game.

This Looks Fun: neuroflare: I wish my Romo headline wasn't redlit so fast. It's almost quality trolling.

Repost for Liter?

That's why I said almost, because it wasn't good enough.

Aaaaand you're wrong.
Phillip Rivers threw 3 INTs against Oakland. He sliced up the Cowboys to the point that he almost beat Drew Brees in fantasy. 

NY Giants versus Cowboys: 31 points
NY Giants versus rest of teams: 12.75 points (average, including 23 at Denver)

Rank of Average starting position for Cowboy's offense over the past 5 years: 29th 

The Cowboys have been running "Demarcus Ware + 10 Other Guys" Defense for years. It has been Super-Ineffective.

If you want people to read your facts, don't be a dick. I produced an opinion. You produced a fact-based counterargument. Like an asshole... Don't do that.

Rwa2play: This; that D makes two stops and the Cowboys win.


You mean two stops other than the fumble recovery and interception?

mikaloyd: pfhobia: It is still ridiculous that they put up 48 points and still had to run the 2-minute drill. Absolutely unbelievable.

Donkey fans should be thinking the same thing and looking at something, ANYTHING to improve their D before playoffs start. If KC can hold Enver to 30 points they have a shot at beating them.


Not making excuses, but by the 2nd half we did have 5 out of 11 defensive starters on the sidelines. It is hard to be an effective defense with half your starters out.  Still, though, 48 points...damn...

That said, when Miller comes back we had better be able to pressure the QB, or this will be another very quick Manning exit from the playoffs.

I'm late to the thread I know. I really never post, and I've been steadily drunk since Thursday, but I just had to drop in and say...

How are the Brownies tied for 1st in the division 5 weeks in? Shouldn't I be considering a header off the 480 bridge by now? What's happening? WHAT FARKING UNIVERSIVE AM I LIVING IN?

/I...I don't know how to act when things are going well for my brownies. It feels unnatural

Yeah, if the Browns start playing any better they'll be threatening to move to Baltimore.

It's quality trolling all right, but I think the dangling modifier did you in.  It sounds like Romo blew the game in regular ESPN fashion.

Resume drinking. It's the only way.
