Wild finish to the Saints-Bucs game. Bucs throw a TD pass that looks good to tie it, but it turns out that it was illegal touching because the receiver stepped out of bounds.
I don't see a reason to insult either the Niners or the Giants. Both teams are 5-2, the Giants are the defending champions, and the Niners are clearly a quality team. Kind of silly for you guys to argue.
So what your saying other teams don't have good points to the season and bad points. Just the Giants? All teams go through that
Dallas Giants Skins Eagles Come to mind and that was with Grossman as QB
in many cases injury dictates the season ending totals.
Giants have a history of playing down to opponents. Anyone that wastches this team will tell you that. That's why we struggle with the Clevelands and the Washingtons but when we play the New Englands and the Green Bays in the playoffs they play their best games. But of course when we destroy the Packers in Lambeau everyone just says the Packers lost the game...
I'm Done You Won - Washington as bad as Cleveland? I do watch them because I'm in the ****ing NY market then I turn the channel Eagles.
They were last year and they beat us twice, and convincingly both times. And if you watch the Giants all the time you can answer this, was this Giants effort as good as the one in San Francisco last week?
Bradshaw ran ten times better on a much tougher 49ers defense than Washington. That's not even debatable. The Giants are 8-1 in their last 9 playoff games... 7 of them on the road or neutral. But no, this team doesn't play down to bad teams.
The Giants defense was too tentative. They were afraid to attack so they tried to contain but they couldn't cover so it ended up just being a 5 yard bubble. That gave the rushing attack a chance to get all those 10+ yard runs
That's what happens when the Giants face a QB that can run so well. They ran into the same thing against Vick and the Eagles and didn't really have an answer for him either.

I ****ing hate defensive coaches. They always have too much confidence in the defense and are super conservative when it comes to offense. 4th and 1 from the Patriots 2 down 6 you have to go for it.
Well it was more like one and a half, but really the bad coaching was going to a frigging shotgun and throwing the ball on third down when you were running it well the whole drive. Hell use THAT play to do more of your Tebow ********, let him sneak it twice from under center but noooo, they have to use him on idiotic decoy pass patterns on 3rd and 6 instead.
Amazingly enough, the Jets getting the ball back with four and a half minutes left on their own 35 down three, with Pat fans booing like it was MetLife lol.
I don't care that Sanchez had 65% completions this week, anyone can do that against the Pats, Russel Wilson did last week after all. The three turnovers were all on him and all killers. Bad coaching and bad playcalling cost us.
