Watching the Giants these days is like watching two trains coming down the same track. One of the trains is moving quickly, is slick and well-oiled machinery designed to be effective and dominant. The other train is squeaky, whiny, starts and stops irregularly and looks like it could just suddenly up and fall apart at any minute, a la the cop car at the end of THE BLUES BROTHERS MOVIE:



But any real NFL fan will live and die with his or her team. Sure, fantasy sports have complicated things for many people, and some are more concerned with betting than if their team plays like a sketch of the Three Stooges. But football is Football, and even when it looks like my G-Men are going to bite the dust for the rest of the year and turn into the Miami Dolphins right before my eyes, I will be a Giants fan first. Everything else about football comes second or later.

So let's hope, for their sakes, that they get their act togethor and start playing like a playoff-caliber NFL Team, or else I'm coming to the Meadowlands to have a chat with Tom Coughlin personally. Locked and Loaded.

Yes! It's 21-0 G-Men at halftime, and Snowman's Titans are not exactly making it difficult. This is exactly what we need: a pick-me-up after last week to put Eli & Co. back into a winning rhythm.

Not only that, but I was right on about Brandon Jacobs; he already has two rushing touchdowns, one after a fumble recovery by the Giants. I am looking like a genius for picking him up off the waiver wire and starting him over Deuce MacAllister.

But then again, these are the Giants, so I should hold my gob until the game is over...

It was a good thing the forums weren't working properly (I don't really mean that) this weekend, because I didn't have to come back and finish putting my foot all the way in my mouth after that last post.

What a meltdown. All of the "Titanic" references are absolutely correct. The G-Men are sunk. I bet Coughlin gets fired.

And Vince Young is haunting me. Guy beats Notre Dame last year for USC, and I thought I'd heard that last of him. Then he comes around and blasts a cap in the Giants butt and pretty much ruins their season. I hate that guy. I better draft him early for my fantasy team next year.

What, exactly, do you have against the Mannings? Did they beat you up or something? Key your car? What's up with that?

Eli just doesn't have the kind of command that a QB in the NFL needs to have. I don't think he's long for the Giants, but of course what I'm afraid of is that he will go to another team and turn into a perennial pro-bowler. That would bother me, but not as much as the fact that we gave up so much for him when we could have just as easily stuck with Phillip Rivers and came out on top. That's more irritating that anything, but hindsight is always 20/20.

Advised by their ego driven father, both Mannings refused to play for SD after they were each to become 1st round draft picks for San Diego. The first adventure with Payton out-and-out refusing to play; so we executed some trades and we ended up with Ryan Leaf. Foul taste in mouth and 5 wasted years trying to recover from that boo-boo.
The second adventure ended up with Eli wearing a Charger hat and a frown for about an hour, until the trade that netted Chargers with Rivers, Merriman, Castillo, and perhaps 1 or 2 other starters. The Manning brothers are not popular in SD. I figured that the astute historian that you are were aware of this. They didn't key my car. Love it when they lose. Love it more when we beat them. Looks like SD and Colts are poised for a play-date later this season.

I forgot Peyton was involved in the Ryan Leaf thing. I knew about Eli, but Peyton was a while ago.

Okay, I can see why that is now. Makes sense to me. It' skind of why I hate A-Rod and the Yankees.

At 4:15 today the G-Men have probably their last chance to get back into the playoff hunt by beating Philly and taking the lead in the NFC Wild Card. And then maybe taking Dallas off the top spot, but probably not, considering their win in Atlanta last night.

This is a big game, for sure. They all have been, since they started playing crappy in Week 5. Strahan needs to come back and set the tone for this team. They seem like they have no leadership on the field. It's more Eli's fault than anyone's. Lets see how he responds...

Eagles win. Wow, this is a crazy season. Looks like my Eagles and Titans can still make the playoffs. The 49ers are looking the best they have in years as well.

Giants still have a chance theoretically, but it looks bad.

Theoretically, in my opinion, the Giants are dead, and Tom Coughlin is toast.

I'm not going to be one of the people that is rushing out and blaming Eli, because I think one of these days he will begin proving to people that he can be more consistent and be a leader on this team.

But Coughlin is outta here. He has totally lost this team.

So now I already have to begin wondering who will replace him.

I agree it is not Eli to blame. Coughlin has shown what he's got...and its not enough.

Now here's the question: Even though the Giants don't deserve to be in th eplayoffs, if they win, if they actually win however many games, does Tom Coughlin still get fired?

My guess, like that of many others, it appears, is that he will have to win twice in the playoffs. Simply beating the Eagles just won't do. Coughlin needs to advance further than the team did in last year's playoffs if he wants to have another crack at it with this team next year.

And if you're wondering why this Giants fan won't even consider that the Giants might actuall surprise a few people by being ulitimately successful, then you haven't been paying attention. The Giants stink. On paper, (and oh, how I love using that phrase, as if everything on paper will come true, that they really don't have to play the games at all), the Giants are a very talented team and capable of winning it all. But on the field, for what ever reason (Coughlin), they haven't been able to put it all togethor.

I don't even want to watch. After the beating ND took from LSU the last night, I just don't want to watch anymore football this year.

I'm starting to focus on baseball already.

Bill Cowher resigned as coach of the Steelers today. I wonder if he would make himself available to coach the Giants next year.

It is kind of strange that he would resign now, after just winning a Super Bowl. Is it because he just wanted to go out on top? Is it a family thing, he just wants to actually retire and spend time at home? Or is it just that he's done all he can do with the Steelers in all of the time he has spent there and is looking for a new challenge. I say that challenge could be the Giants.

Fire Tom! Hire Bill!

Good question, since Cowher is a true-blue Pitt resident, etc. I'm extremely surprized that he quit!

Those Eagles, like the Giants, are another of those pesky teams that won't go away, even after a bad season.

I think Cowher is going to take a few years off, then come back to another team.

my dilusional friend seemed to think that after leaving a good team like the Steelers that Bill Cowher would for some reason want to coach the Browns. I don't usually like calling people stupid, but in this case Cowher would be leaving a good team that hates the Browns for a very bad team in the Browns. Plus I really don't think tha he would want to alienate the fans that have been so good to him over the last 15 years.

Given that the Giants ownershave not only fired Tom Coughlin, but extended his contract, I can only assume that they must have privately contacted Bill Cowher and he told them exactly what Snowman just posted, that he is going to take at least a couple of years off, and then maybe he'll reutrn.

I saw that. More bad news for the 'Boys is always good news for the Giants.

It's a pipe dream but, I'm putting Parcells on my wish list next to Cowher next year. (*If they firs Coughlin during or after the season)

A bit of news on the Giants Front.

The G-Men have http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2763433 - cut some starters , the only one of which surprises me is Luke Pettigout, and also Tiki Barber is http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2763247 - going to work for NBC on the Today Show, as well as make broadcast appearances for NBC Football. The best of luck to him, he's a great guy and he'll be a real asset to that network.

Brandon Jacobs could be out for a month with a knee injury, which sucks because he was my only full-time backup RB on my fantasy team, but it sucks even mor for my Giants because Eli will not be starting this week either, and it is uncertain (says ESPN) how much time he might miss.

Talk about a crappy start to the season for the G-Men.

Sucks for me too, Eli is my backup. Being stuck with both of Gene's favorite QB's can't be good.

This is great. They beat the Cowboys. They beat the Packer. Two major upsets in a row. If they can beat the Patriots, I will be in heaven. Why? Because those three teams are the teams I hate the most. I absolutely loathe these three teams!

Go Giants!

Go Eli!

It would be wonderful for the Manning bros to win back to back Super Bowls!

All the sports writers are depressed today. Not only do they all think that Brett Farve and the Packers would have made a better more dramatic sports story leading up to the Super Bowl, but nearly each and every single one of them throughout the country spent the entire pre-season and first three quarters of the regular season talking about how Eli will never be as good as his brother, that he will never live up to his first pick overall status, and that Tom Coughlin is the wrong guy for the wrong job on the wrong team.

Well...

Screw all of them!

Eli, Tom, Strahan, Paxico and the rest of my G-Men have marched their way down field after an 0-2 start in which they gave up a combined 80+ points in the first two game, and are going to the Super Bowl as the last great hope to take down the cheating Patriots.

In the name of all that is holy, and all that is good about football, humanity, and ice cold beer on Sundays, the Giants must beat the Patriots, and become World Champions, rulers of Jupiter, and Masters of the Entire Universe.

Eli is no longer just Peyton's younger, less-talented brother. He is truly a Giant among NFL quarterbacks, and he has proven it.




And as a side note, after that 0-2 start to the season, I was not exactly thinking they were going to do this either, but neither did I start shouting down any notion that they could. Turht be told, after the Mets did, well, what they did to me in the fall, and things were starting the way they were for the Giants, I figured a long fall was about to turn into an even longer winter for my sports world. But now. How sweet this truly is.

And I just figured out that I don't have to work on Super Bowl Sunday.
