It was no doubt quite crushing for Giants fans to see their team go 0-6.  But now two teams are 1-6, and one of them kicked the other's butt in head-to-head on the road.

Vikings fans have got to be just HATING that.

No. They needed a head coach on the other side of the field with sh*t for brains and horrible decision making skills.

No. They needed Josh Freeman to throw the ball 53 times and for two kick returners to lose fumbles inside the Vikings' 20 yard line. And they still somehow only scored 23 points.

Sounds like SuckBowl 2013 really lived up to the hype. Too bad I missed it.

Lando Lincoln: Sounds like SuckBowl 2013 really lived up to the hype. Too bad I missed it.


I dipped into the first half a few times, if only to hear Chucky and Tirico desperately trying to make it sound like something either interesting or significant was happening down there. Chucky has more ways of saying "that wasn't the QB's fault" than you can possibly imagine.

It was the kind of game where by the third quarter, Al Michaels would be focused on the spread and John Madden would be talking about next week's matchup, and both would assume that almost nobody came back after the halftime break. But this was ESPN, where they never, ever admit that they are serving up a shiat sandwich. Got to sell that thing!

You ever see the Hank Scorpio episode of the Simpsons? It was like watching the Denver Broncos at the end of that episode, except on a loop for 2+ hours, and with different team uniforms.

If you had watched the third quarter you would have heard Tirico and Gruden both openly state that a bad game between two bad teams was in progress.

And by the fourth quarter, they were comparing it (unfavorably) to a preseason game

And I don't think they have to worry about losing their audience. To me, and most football fans, NFL football is like pizza or sex -- even when it's bad, it's good. I can enjoy a comedy of errors like this one nearly as much as I can enjoy a great game.

Agreed.  I shared many a laugh with the fellas at the bar.

Seriously? You're not exactly making me regret that I didn't stay up...

On talk radio this morning I heard the words "unprofessional" and "embarrassing" tossed around.

This game was like Dominoes Pizza or sex with your dog.  It's just too awkward to ever seem like a good idea.

Football should have closers. A big guy playing QB, with no intention of throwing the ball or even handing it off. He just rolls around end, picks up 4 yards every time and kills the clock.

I'm glad other people heard this. I was tired of Chucky making excuses for Eli overthrowing half his receivers. Eli has always been an average to better-than-average QB. I don't understand the need to constantly defend the lesser Manning for his shiatty play.
 
2013-10-22 01:29:36 PM
The comeback begins! From this point, the Giants will then win all of their remaining games (except Green Bay and Seattle), sneak their way into the playoffs due to the NFC East being a sack of potatoes this season, and then go on a hot streak into the Super Bowl, where Eli Manning will engineer one of his trademark upsets over the Patriots yet again.

Book it, done.

Tangential football thing:  Do any of you Total Farkers know if an NFL Power Rankings thread has been greenlit?  I checked the ESPN power rankings link and it said it had been redlit

Were they talking the ESPN commentators openly mocking the horrid game ("I've actually got to pick a winner in this suck-fest? Coin toss.")? Or the game itself?

mikaloyd: Wut?


Crap crap crap crappity crap.  I'd seen the score reported as 23-7 instead of 7-23.  Never mind: they both suck in their own ways, but I'll take it because the Eagles are not very good and we need the Ws.

the_vegetarian_cannibal: Eli Manning will engineer one of his trademark upsets over the Patriots yet again.


That would be the funniest sh*t in the history of funny sh*t, made even funnier by the legions of Pats fans once again trotting out the "playoffs aren't really a good indication of team quality" blah, blah blah they did last time.  Even as an Eagles fan, I don't actually like seeing the Sad-Sack Giants; they're supposed to be a good team.

Now sad-sack Cowboys?  I could get behind that forever.

There's another ESPN power rankings thread in the pipe with a few comments and trivia already up. Maybe they'll green it, who knows.

Huh, that's strange.  Usually it's a sure thing that one of them will be greened and posted by now.

I would hope the game.  The commentators ragging on the game was the best part of the broadcast.

Finally the Giants are starting to get it together. Now they just need about 8 more games where they get 3 turnovers, their opponent makes their all-pro RB sit while their QB throws 33 incomplete passes, and they get the ball on the opponent's 20 all game.

It was also awesome to see the Vikings play the last 6 minutes like they had a comfortable 3 score lead, instead of some degree of hurry up offense that might help close the 2 score gap.

Been a constant thing under Musgrave and Fraizer.

It either means they are stupid or it means our GM has drafted people SO AWFUL that they are incapable of running a hurry up offense in the NFL.

Either way, I have a sad.
