Shattered Dreams

November 27, 2009

Thanks for nothing

I waited all day through 2 of the worst football games ever only to find out that the main event would turn into an all out disgrace.

This team was suppose to come out blazing, desperate to regain the swag that has eluded them in the past 6 games.  Last night, we were suppose to watch “Giants football”, you know, that smash mouth running game and a stalwart defense.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Giants looking to feast on Broncos in Thanksgiving show down

November 25, 2009

Denver fans aren't too happy with the 4-game losing streak

What a difference a month makes.

Everybody knows the story by now:  Broncos hire a young, inexperienced coach, trade away their star quarter back, bench their star wide receiver only to kiss and make up, miraculously start the season 6-0, and now have lost four straight.  At 6-4, and after relinquishing its’ division lead, the Denver Broncos are left looking for answers.  What once looked like a Superbowl contender, now looks like a team destined for an 8-8 finishing record.

Happy Feet Sanchez backpedaling

November 23, 2009

In today’s Newsday, Wallace Matthews remarks that Sanchez is regressing instead of progressing.  The Sanchise is coming off another five turnover game, and in the article Matthews states:

“Ten games into his pro career, the game is not slowing down for him, it is speeding up. Never did he look more like an overmatched rookie than on his fourth and final interception – but not turnover – of the day, when under pressure from three Patriots defenders, he blindly flipped the ball downfield like a man hoping to persuade a pack of hungry pit bulls to play “go fetch.”

Giants defense not playoff worthy

November 23, 2009

Thanks to a career day from Quarterback Eli Manning, the New York football Giants defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-31 in overtime Sunday. The Giants hadn’t won since beating Oakland 44-7 on Oct. 11, so it had to feel good to get a win under the belt.  It was a must win for the G-men, as they are now in good position for a playoff berth, if their offense continues to light it up like it did Sunday.  On the other hand, if their defense continues to play like it has the past few weeks, the Giants are going to be on the outside looking in.

Giants resuscitated, Jets remain on life support

November 22, 2009

Eli Manning had a career day against the Falcons

Despite another meltdown by the shaky Giant defense, Lawrence Tynes kicked the G-men to a 34-31 victory, keeping the Giants in good position for a playoff spot.  The giants snapped their four-game losing streak, and Eli Manning threw for a career-high 384 yards.  Eli added three touchdown passes, including two to Kevin Boss.  The Falcons (5-5) have lost four of five after a 4-1 start.  With the win, the Giants became the first home team to win in the series since New York beat Atlanta in 1979. The visiting teams had won 12 straight in the series, and the Falcons gave it a good shot at making it 13 in a row.

NFC Playoff Picture: Tough path for Giants

November 18, 2009

There’s no hiding that Sunday’s matchup with the 5-4 Atlanta Falcons is huge.  With the NFC South and NFC North all but locked up, there are four remaining playoff births up for grabs in the NFC.

While divisional leaders Dallas and Arizona have the upper hand, their hard work is not nearly over.  The Eagles, Packers, Falcons and Giants are all 5-4, and are right in the playoff hunt.

At 4-5, the 49ers, Panthers and Bears are on life support, but their dreams are not dead yet.

What it all boils down to is that with seven games remaining, there are nine NFC teams fighting for four spots in the playoffs.

Meadowlands Meltdown

November 9, 2009
*Nov 08 - 00:05*

Mission: Failure

This was supposed to be the “Superbow.” The biggest game of the year. It was put up or shut up time for the g-men (lower case “g” because they’ve come up short). But instead of leaving the game with the “season still alive”  trophy, little blue limped out with nothing but the possibility of a season lost.

What changed?  Not much.  104 yds of penalties.  Terrible play calling on both sides of the ball. Running away from Giant’s football (literally). And the inability to make a stop when it was most needed.

When Terrell Thomas intercepted Philip Rivers  pass midway through the fourth quarter and brought the ball to inside the San Diego 5-yard line, you would think the Giants would wrap the game up.  However, the fact that the Giants are in the bottom rung in converting red zone opportunities into 7 points; a trend they have failed to buck since last season, it’s not suprising that they ended up with a FG.

*Nov 08 - 00:05*

Phillip Rivers celebrates the battle of the '04 QB's, with an easy game winning drive.

A holding penalty on Chris Snee, a dinky pass here, and two poorly-timed run plays later, and Lawrence Tynes is out for three points, to the  Chargers delight. To the dismay of Big Blue nation, the Giants failed to attack the endzone. Coach Tom Couglin explained, “We didn’t want a turnover there”.

If that’s not an indication that this team has completely lost its identity, I’m not sure what is. The rest is history. The Chargers marched down the field slicing through shabby coverage and mismatches (Thanks Bill Sheridan) and further diminish the Giants playoff hopes with a dagger-like touchdown with 20 seconds left.

Season over?  Not sure.  But the g-men have completely lost their identity.  Thank god for bye weeks.
