the only other thing i have to say about the giants... michael strahan thinks he's an all time great player. but he has one big problem... THE all time great defensiver player wore that uniform... a guy who tore his shoulder ligaments, detached his pectoral muscle, wrapped his arm behind his back and had 3 sacks in the game. now all be it he was probably so jacked up on coke that he couldn't feel a thing... but michael strahan has a broken bone in his foot, and continues to miss game after game after game as the giants season goes down the shitter. lawrence taylor, he is not.

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.
Tiki getting a chance in the red zone would have helped my fantasy team a lot this year...friggin brandon Jacobs...

Not quite holding Taylor to the same standard you were holding Merriman eh ?

Not that it appears Merriman has slowed down much

Hey what was that "Eagles watching the playoffs at home on the golf course" thing again ?

speaking of Merriman, the double standard with him, and all NFL players, compared to baseball players is ridiculous.

this guy, who missed 1/4 of the season due to cheating by using steroids, gets selected to the Pro Bowl without a second thought

yet if it happens to baseball players, they basically get ostracized from the game, theyre labelled as cheaters and a bad influence to all our kids

if Merriman goes on to have a HOF career do you think there will be endless debates about his steroid use and if he was worthy? no way. yet McGwire will be lucky to ever make the HOF, and he was never even caught for steroids

I saw a brief debate this on television a few weeks ago. Chip's right, there is a huge double standard when one compares public perception of performance enhancing drug use in the NFL as compared to MLB. That does not make McGwire any less guilty (he's guilty...and he's not alone, of course, but he's guilty), nor Bonds, but, yeah, Merriman is not being held to the same rigid standard our baseball stars are held to. By the way, even in baseball, when lower level players test positive, nobody blinks....but if Clemens or David Ortiz tested positive, people would go berserk.

Maybe it has to do with the physical nature of the sport, I don't know. Maybe people just assume Merriman would be that big, strong and fast with or without steroids, because, well, football players are big, strong and fast. Not sure what the psychology behind it is, but, it definitely exists, from fans to the press.

I had Barber on my Fantasy team, too, but, my rant was coming from a guy that roots for the Giants, not from a pissed off fantasy owner. Though, yeah, watching Tiki help take it down to the 5 then watching the mentally ill (seriously, he seems insane) Jacobs pound it in would get a little frustrating.

I agree! I would not EVER want to get in the way of Jacobs. He kind of reminds me of a robot with some sort of exo-skeleton. It's creepy.

i'm sorry... i don't remember the report that said LT took 'roids.

cocaine may dull the pain, but i don't know if i'd exactly call it a performance enhancer. and besides, i said it in jest.

now go back to lurking until you find something else you can attempt to rip me on... see ya in 2 weeks.

I don't know anyone besides Cardinals fans that actually believe McGwire did not take some sort of performance enhancing drug. Testing now is enough of a joke, when McGwire played it was basically non-existant, nobody cared if players were on anything, everyone just wanted HR chases. So, was he proven guilty? Nope, but, then again, he was not really tried.

And, let me add, that my fondest wish is that he and Sosa and Bonds, etc, were all clean, because 1998 was a magical baseball year and I'd prefer it if it was done on the up and up.

Why, cause the corner tied for the league lead in INT's didn't make it?

No, because the Pro Bowl is held in the same stadium U2 just closed their tour in, and so most interference users won't like the Pro Bowl set list.
