if the eric mangini coached the giants they'd be looking at another division title and a first round bye right now instead of clinging to a 6 seed.

the jets are sooooo well prepared it's ridiculous.

you can talk about how eli's play needs to improve for the giants to win all you want...

Eli Manning- 3069 yards, 22 TDs, 17 INTs 219.2 YPG, 79.3 QB Rating
Chad Pennington- 2958 yards, 15 TDs, 16 INTs, 211.3 YPG, 81.3 QB Rating

the numbers of both New York QBs are very similar... one team wins games they're not supposed to, the other loses games they're supposed to win. you figure it out.

I watched bits and pieces of that Eagles-Giants game, and the playcalling in the red zone by the G-men was atrocious. Too many predictable running plays. A little bit of creativity to throw the defense off would have helped.

And Chunky Soup as well. (Though Jeff "Kissing Bandit" Garcia has done enough to make Chunky very scarce around here lately).

Oh that wacky NFC.

Eli and Chad have similar stats, but personally, I think that Eli has much more talent to throw to than Chad does. Chris Baker/Sean Ryan are no Shockey and although Laverneaus is really good, Plaxico has the talent to be HUGE.

And Tiki is far superior to the Jets RBs by committee.

The Giants should have a much better record.

And is it just me, or do you think that they should start testing kickers for steroids a bit more. These guys are all hitting 50-60+ yarders w/ ease this season.

I watched the Giants game in its entirety yesterday and am soooo tired of the Giant play calling in the Red Zone. I'm no expert, of course, but, geez, show some variety, some imagination....always having Jacobs in there ensures that they'll have one less passing option, as opposed to having Barber in there, who is savvy enough to find an opening in the end zone if all else fails.

Headache is right, this is a poorly prepared, undisciplined team that a better coach would probably have at 10-4 right now, injuries or not. Also, MUST Fox cut to Coughlin 40-50 times a game...geez. We get it, he yells and launches into histrionics, enough.

Developments of the day:

Phillyfan26 remains nowhere to be seen...

Headache makes his smartest post all season with a photo of a kitchen utensil.

Our resident feline makes her usual non-contribution. (At least last year she was trying to post about football)

The thread finally realizes the genius of Tom Coughlin.

"the genius of Tom Coughlin" sounds a lot like "the acting brilliance of Pauley Shore" or something akin to that.

I am seen, Dave.

I give credit to Garcia for some good moments of passing. I give more credit to Andy for re-doing his playcalling scheme, which was atrocious with McNabb at the helm. The defense once again proved inability to tackle or pressure. The sole reason of victory was a Mr. Brian Dawkins, who went out of his way to knock two fumbles out. My father has been watching NFL games for 35 years, and said, "He's still the best player I've ever seen at forcing fumbles." Both of them were plays very few could make. He also had one of the Eagles' extremely lucky tipped pass interceptions, the one where Eli threw it right into Mike Patterson's head. He made his first appearance this season along with 0055 Dhani Jones, who managed to make his first hit of the season by late hitting a guy out of bounds. The first time 0055 blew his cover all season. Up until that moment, he was as secretive as 007 himself about his existence on this team. Reno Nevada Mahe finally made a big play on special teams.

I'm still peeved about the stupid penalties though. We did it twice AGAIN. Jones late hit a guy and then Garcia throwing the ball at the guy, I was ready to kill him.

And it didn't help that Tom Coughlin's an idiot.

Last I checked, Brian Dawkins didn't score 36 points.

I agree though - dumb penalties are our nemesis. I wanted to whack my head off a wall when Garcia drew that taunting penalty.

Playoffs baby
