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.

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.

This weekend in the wild world of sports…

November 21, 2009
NFL, NHL,College Football,Hocks, UFC!…what do I watch!…jdizzle will tell you

Saturday-

12:00 pm Michigan vs. Ohio St.—Yes, this game does not have the hype surrounding it as it once had, but it is still once of college’s greatest rivalry’s and if Rich Rodriguez is to stay in Ann Arbor he knows what he has to do today:  Not only win, but win convincingly.

1:00 pm Knicks vs. Nets—Hey, somebody’s gotta win.  Knicks and Nets don’t deserve high fives…

7:00 pm Panthers vs. Rangers- Rangers had a tough week of practice.  Henrik Lundqvist and Gaborik can not do it by themselves.  The Rangers will need help from Kotalik, Del Zotto, and the Captain Chris Drury who returns after suffering a concussion on November 7th.  Dubinsky will be out, so someone is going to have to help Gaborik out offensively otherwise the Rangers could start sliding quick.   

7:30 pm –  Cal vs. Stanford- Stanford over the last two weeks have put up ridiculous offensive numbers against  USC and Oregon, two of the best teams in the conference.   With a win against 25th ranked Cal and losses by Oregon, Oregon St, and Arizona in the remaining games can give the Cardinals a Rose bowl birth.  Gotta root for the geeks, sorry folks.

What a Shocker! Ex-Giant Shockey running his mouth again

Shockey: Lebron couldn't cut it in NFL

After reports surfaced that future Knick, err I mean NBA star Lebron James said he has aspirations to someday play in the NFL, Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey has some thoughts of his own.  “King James wouldn’t cut it in the NFL on Sundays.”  That is what the talkative ex-Giant said via his Twitter account Wednesday night. “Everyone trust me Lebron James could not play in the NFL,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “ESPN is crazy to even think he could even make a practice squad. He’s no better than a 4.9  40 time.”

The Life of a New York Sports Fan

November 9, 2009

gal_yankee_parade_32

What a difference a week makes….

Last Wednesday, I was celebrating a Yankees World Series victory.  The first championship in nine years.  To other sports fans, that’s not a long time, but to a Yankee fan, it’s an eternity.  Last Friday’s victory parade was the culmination of a great season, a thrilling postseason run, and the hoisting of the World Series trophy at the new Yankee Stadium.  You couldn’t have asked for a better story.

On this same Friday however,  we also got to see a crowning. But we weren’t celebrating a New York team, we were celebrating King James, Lebron James, as he put on a show at MSG that left many Knick fans salivating at the prospects of #23 wearing orange and blue.  I never thought I would live to see the day when fans at the Garden were cheering for an opposing player more so than their own team.  The site of “Knick fans” wearing ficticious Lebron James Knick jersey’s and going ga-ga at the site of him was disgusting.  But what can I expect?  It’s already seven games into the season and the 1-6 Knicks are pretty much toast.  So on to  2010 it is…..

But wait there’s more.  Sunday at the Meadowlands, the Giants were in a must win battle with their season on the brink of collapse. Instead of rising to the occasion, the Giants stumbled to the finish line, and fell flat on their face.  After an astonishing 5-0 start, little blue has now been humbled with four straight losses.  Now, instead of looking at the #2 seed in the NFC, the g-men will be lucky if they cling on to the final wild-card spot.

The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in four days…..only in NY.
